Minerals

  1. 1. Minerals Friday, 15 October 2010 Journal Question: What are minerals? Where could you find minerals in nature? How are minerals useful? Plan for the Day: • Notes • Classifying Objects as Minerals • Notes • Begin Mineral Properties Chart
  2. 2. Minerals What Is a Mineral? A mineral is a naturally occurring, inorganic solid that has a crystal structure and a definite chemical composition. - Properties of Minerals
  3. 3. Minerals Tuesday, 19 October 2010 Journal Question: Amber is a precious material used in jewelry. It forms when the resin of pine trees hardens into stone. Is amber a mineral? Explain. Plan for the Day: • Notes • Classifying Minerals • Assignment
  4. 4. Minerals Calculating Density To calculate the density of a mineral, divide the mass of the mineral sample by its volume. Density = Mass/Volume Practice Problem A sample of calcite has a mass of 324 g and a volume of 120 cm3. What is its density? 324 g ÷ 120 cm3 = 2.7 g/cm3 - Properties of Minerals
  5. 5. Minerals Mohs Hardness Scale
  6. 6. Minerals Friday, 22 October 2010 Journal Question: The mineral platinum is an element that often occurs as a pure metal. If a sample of platinum has a mass of 430g and a volume of 20 cm3, what is its density? Show your work and explain your unit. Plan for the Day: • Notes • Classifying Minerals • Identifying Minerals • Assignment
  7. 7. Minerals Identifying Minerals - Properties of Minerals Geologists classify crystal structures into six groups based on the number and angle of the crystal faces.
  8. 8. Minerals Cleavage and Fracture
  9. 9. Minerals Special Properties
  10. 10. Minerals Crystal Systems Activity Click the Active Art button to open a browser window and access Active Art about crystal systems. - Properties of Minerals
  11. 11. Minerals Mineral Density Use the line graph of the mass and volume of pyrite samples to answer the questions. - Properties of Minerals
  12. 12. Minerals Mineral Density 50 g; 10 cm3 Reading Graphs: What is the mass of Sample B? What is the volume of Sample B? - Properties of Minerals
  13. 13. Minerals Mineral Density 5 g/cm3 Calculating: What is the density of Sample B? - Properties of Minerals
  14. 14. Minerals Mineral Density 100 g; 20 cm3 Reading Graphs: What is the mass of Sample C? What is the volume of Sample C? - Properties of Minerals
  15. 15. Minerals Mineral Density 5 g/cm3 Calculating: What is the density of Sample C? - Properties of Minerals
  16. 16. Minerals Mineral Density The density of samples B and C is the same. Comparing and Contrasting: Compare the density of Sample B to that of Sample C. - Properties of Minerals
  17. 17. Minerals Mineral Density 8 g Predicting: A piece of pyrite has a volume of 40 cm3. What is its mass? - Properties of Minerals
  18. 18. Minerals Mineral Density No; density does not depend on size. Larger samples have more mass, but the ratio between mass and volume is constant. Drawing Conclusions: Does the density of a mineral depend on the size of the mineral sample? Explain. - Properties of Minerals
