### Lewis Acids and Bases

In the textbook, Lewis acids and bases don't appear till Ch. 12, but Dr Lavelle mentioned them in lectures. I was wondering whether we'd be expected to know about them for the midterm?

### Re: Radical Lewis Structures

Just to add, when drawing the lewis structure you place the unpaired electron on the atom which is more electronegative.

### Drawing dipole moments[ENDORSED]

Would we be required to draw dipole moments in questions where we are asked to draw the lewis structure of a molecule?

### Significance of Schrodinger's Equation[ENDORSED]

I understand that Ψ^2 represents the electron density distribution and hence allows us to find the probability of an electron occurring, but what exactly is the significance of the original wave function (HΨ=EΨ)? What does it help us find/calculate?

### Re: Factors Affecting Energy of an Electron

A factor that affects electron energies in multi-electron atoms would be shielding. So an electron in an outer shell would experience reduced electrostatic attraction (effective nuclear charge), as inner electrons would shield electrostatic attraction between the positive nucleus and the outer elect...

### Color of visible light

If an atomic spectra lies within the visible light spectrum (Balmer series), would we be expected to know what color light it is?

### Re: Why don't we use the Rydberg equation from the book?

Dr Lavelle hasn't talked about similar equations for other atoms, and we wouldn't be expected to know them, at least at our current level.

### Re: Significant Figures[ENDORSED]

Generally, you would round significant figures according to the value given in the question. For example, if the question gives you 3 sig figs, you would round your percentage to 3 sig figs. If there are 2 values in the question, you would choose the one with the least number of sig figs to base you...

### Re: E.15[ENDORSED]

you find what the metal M is by subtracting the molar mass of (OH)2 from 74.10. you will find that M is calcium, so you just have to calculate the molar mass of CaS (which is the sulfide of the metal)
