Re: FINAL PRACTICE - Lyndon's Churro Review Session [ENDORSED]

I think I understand the basis of how to do number 34, but I keep getting a pH of 2.10. Did anyone else make the error same/know what my error is? I'm getting that same answer :( The 1st step is to write out the acid and base equation, [HCl] + [H2O] =>[H3O^+] + [OH^-] and [CaO] + [H2O] => [Ca^+] + ...

for 33a, how do we set up the equation with 1.5mol/L and 0.1155mol/210ml to find the mL require for the 1.5M solution?

Re: How to Measure Bond Lengths

I believe we only need to know the trend, if we need it on the exam we will be given the specific one.

Re: MO theory

As for in what order to fill the orbitals, draw out an underscore for space where each pair of e- can fill and only put 1 e- in until you run out of empty ones before you put another e- in the same orbital.

Re: Question 4.45 (Sixth Edition)

hybrid orbitals on something like C is when ground state C, which has 2 e- in 2s orbital and 2 e- in 2p orbital, combine to form 4e- in a single 2sp orbital, so each e- is available to bond.

Re: Homework Problem help #2.39

The ground state of an element is in order, an electron in the excited state can be in any other n level (as long as it got excited enough). So if the electron configuration jumps out of order, the atom must have excited electrons.

Re: How do you utilize the VSEPR model?

Basically you count the numbers of bond pairs and lone pairs a molecule has, then look at the chart to find the corresponding molecular shape.
For example a molecule with 2 bonds and 0 lone pairs is corresponded to the "linear" shape.

Re: Acids and Bases

Lewis acids accept electrons, and Lewis bases donate electrons. If the molecule has an H+ ion in its structure, then it can take some e- and therefore it is a Lewis acid.

Re: Polar and Nonpolar

It comes down to if the molecule has charged regions (e- spending more time near one atom instead of both), and if charge regions are positioned to balance the charge (example: two (-) charged atom on either side of a (+) charged atom).

Re: Lewis Structures

if you set up the Lewis structure correctly, and know your electronegativity, then you can figure which molecule keeps the shared e- longer (more negative). Then look at the angles and placement of those charged regions, if the charge molecules are skewed to one side, or not balanced with another ch...

Re: Electron Configuration Help

For electron configurations, literally, write down the number of electrons in each orbital of the atom. For example, Hydrogen has 1 electron and it's in 1s orbital, so the EC for that is: 1s^1 Lithium has 3 electrons, 2 in 1s orbital, 1 in 2s orbital, so EC for Li is: 1s^2 2s^1 Carbon has 6 electron...

Re: Exceptions to Trends

The profession also mentions that what he said is a theory of why the phenomenon occurs, so maybe the science world doesn't fully understand it yet.

Re: Homework 2.43e

I think this phenomenon only applies to the first row of d-orbitals/d-states, so like Cr and Cu, but not any other d-state (4d, 5d...etc)

Re: About Uncertainty in position

I believe the diameter of the atom is twice of "delta x," it looks like the question wants you to put 1/2 of that diameter into the uncertainty equation in delta x and solve of velocity.

Re: Kinetic energy and e = hv

I would think if Ek is 0, then the electron is not ejected. For the experiment, they had a slightly positive surface that will attract the electron with a small amount of Ek.

Re: Threshold energy

In a photoelectric effect, a radiation (Ep) applied at a metallic surface , and if the radiation is greater the the threshold energy (work function) of the metal, an electron will be ejected (Ek).

The threshold energy/work function is how much energy is need to eject the electron from the metal.

For the electron configuration, when we get into an element in the "d" sublevel, why do we do something like "3d10 4s1" instead of "3d9 4s2?"
