From the midterm practice test,

6. a) Arrange S2-, Cl-, and P3- in order of increasing ionic radius.

Since they all have the same number of electrons, wouldn't their radii be the same length?

### Midterm Practice Test #4b

A newly designed laser pointer with a certain frequency is pointed at a sodium metal surface. An electron is ejected from the metal surface with wavelength 1.10 nm. What is the frequency of the light from the laser pointer? The work function of sodium is 150.6 kJ∙mol-1. I got 2.89 x 10^17 Hz and was...

### Re: Chem. Equilibrium Part 3 Post-Assess. #19

I know when we assume x is small we can drop the -x, but how come the square after .0482 is dropped as well? Like in the first equation it is .0482^2-x but the second equation is just .0482.

### Post-Module Assess. #31 and #33

For both questions: 2A + 1B ---> 3C

31. 1 mol B reacts with 2 mol A, but there is only 1 mol A present, so it is the limiting reagent.
How much of B would be used?

33. What is the maximum amount of product that can be produced?

Can someone please explain this to me?
