I'm not sure if I am just calculating this wrong but can someone walk me through this problem? You are studying the following unbalanced reaction at high temperatures: NH3 (g) ⇌ N2 (g) + H2 (g) In one of your experiments at 500K the measured partial pressures are: NH3 0.887 bar H2 0.168 bar N2 0.056...

### lewis structures

ok so just to clarify, is there a certain rule to abide by when seeing if an element can exceed the octet rule? I know that the rule of thumb is if it equals n=3 or above but if someone can explain in more detail that'd be awesome.

You are caught in a radar trap and hope to show that the speed measured by the radar gun is in error due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. If you assume that the uncertainty in your position was +/- 5 m when your speed was measured, and that the car has a mass of 2150 kg, what is your calcula...

### question on how to determine if something has wavelike properties.

Calculate the de Broglie wavelength of a 0.155 kg ball travelling at 85.0 m.s-1. Can we detect this wavelength or observe the wavelike characteristics of this ball?

I got that the answer is 5.03 x 10^-35 m. I just don't understand how to determine whether something has wavelike properties or not?

### Re: HW Ch2. 19 (d)

There are 3 subshells in the shell where n=3.
The number of types of subshells is the same as the shell number.
The first shell has one type of subshell (s)
The second shell has two types of subshells (s, p)
The third shell has three types of subshells (s, p, d).

### Re: Electron configurations

Using the electron configuration of another element in brackets and then containing the configuration is just a shorthand way of writing the entire thing out. I don't think there's any particular reason other than that it is shorter, but I might be wrong.
