chapter 2 #37 part d

2.37 Which of the following statements are true for many- electron atoms? If false, explain why. (d) Zeff for an electron in a p-orbital is lower than for an electron in an s-orbital in the same shell. Why is this true? Wouldn't the effective nuclear charge be greater for an electron in a p-orbital ...

HW 12.7

12.7 Below are the molecular models of two oxoacids. Write the name of each acid and then draw the model of its conjugate base.

The molecular formula for the model is HClO3. How am I supposed to determine the name of this acid? It's apparently chloric acid.

Thank you!

Writing equations with acids and bases

When writing the equation for a reaction with acids and bases, should we write the double arrows to represent that it is a forward and backwards reaction when strong acids and bases are involved even though they essentially completely associate?

Naming Coordination Compounds

[Ni(CN)4]2-

The name for this compound is tetracyanonickelate (II). Why do you write cyanide as cyano? When do you add "o" to the end of a name?

[Co(NH3)Cl]Cl * 2H2O

Additionally, are ammonia and chlorine (the one in the brackets) both ligands in the above example?

Re: Models of Atoms- Question 2.31

Hi! I could also use some clarification about this problem. For part d, the solution manual says that 6f exists. However, looking at the periodic table I only see that there are s, p, and d orbitals when n=6. Does it exist because for n=6, the l values can be anywhere from 0 to 5, so theoretically, ...

For certain problems in the chapter 1 homework, you have to use the De Brogile equation. For example, you are given velocity and mass, and you have to solve for wavelength.
