### Re: What is 1/K?[ENDORSED]

1/K is the reciprocal of K for that reaction
if you know the value of K of the forward reaction (for example 5) and the exercise asks you to find the K of the reverse reaction, you can find it by calculating the reciprocal of K of the forward reaction (in our example 1/5 which is 0.2)

### Re: Bronsted Acid and Base vs Lewis Acid and Base

Bronsted: H+
- Bronsted acids are proton donor
- Bronsted bases are proton acceptor

Lewis: e-
- Lewis acids are e- acceptor and they accept a lone pair
- Lewis bases are e- donor and the donate a lone pair

### Re: 12.17 part b

1) It is a nonmetal so this means that it forms acidic oxides
2) it takes e- so it is an electron acceptor

### Strong Acids and Weak Bases

I have some problems recognizing when a acid is stronger than another acid and when a base is weaker than anther base. Can someone explain me how to do it?

How do you determine that an atom is mono dentate? do you have to look at the lone pairs or at the bonds?

### Re: Electronegativity and Bond Strength

Bond strength and electronegativity are not really strictly related, but bond strength is more connected with the length of the atomic radius: smaller the atomic radius is, stronger the bond will be. In fact between CF4, CCl4, and CBr4, CF4 has the strongest bond because in all the three molecules w...

### Re: Atomic Spectra Module Question 44

a) you have to use the following formula in order to get the frequency --> frequency= R (1/n^2 - 1/n^2) [in this case n=4 and n=1 so frequency= R (1/16 - 1)
b) once you get the frequency you just have to use the formula wavelength= c(speed of light)/frequency

### Re: Wavelength and Frequency

we know that c= frequency x wavelength. c is a constant (speed of light), so from the first formula we can get that frequency=c/wavelength, from this you can see that frequency and wavelength are inversely proportional. In fact as the value of the wavelenght increases the value of the frequency decr...

### Re: Identifying Empirical and Molecular Formulas[ENDORSED]

The empirical formula shows the relative numbers of atoms of each element present in the compound (It is the simplest positive integer ratio of atoms present in a compound)
The molecular formula shows the actual numbers of atoms of each element in a molecule
