 “Having a Ball
with Chemistry”

October 19-25, 2008
  Celebrating National Chemistry Week
  “Having a Ball with Chemistry”
   Ideas from the Journal of Chemical Education,
   Vol.85, No.10, October 2008
•Chemistry in Sports
   –Endurance athletes, hemoglobin levels, NO levels, & steroid detection (p.1310)
   –Indy Car Racing (p.1316)
   –Golf – chemical make-up of a golf ball and club (p.1319)
   –Polymers used in artificial turf (p.1323)
   –Polymers used in protective headgear (p.1326)
   –Polymers in sports & safety equipment (properties of different types of sports balls)
   –Sports Nutrition

•Sports in Chemistry
   –Using games and puzzles in chemistry class to promote interest and healthy
   academic competition (fielding average= avg of weekly lab grades; batting
   average= quiz/test avg; homerun =100% quiz/test score, etc)
   –Relate the sport of running to chemical kinetics (p.1314-1315)
   –See who can make the best bouncy ball in the lab
