Re: calculating standard cell potential

There are two ways of calculating standard potential (E). You can either use E_cell = E_cathode - E_anode, in which you just take the standard reduction potentials from the chart and plug them into the equation as is, without changing the signs, or you can add up the half reactions and their standar...

molar masses on the test

Will we be given the molar mass of elements on the exam? or will we have to memorize the molar masses of the elements? I noticed that in the module assessments we were given the molar mass for some of the elements, but not all.

chemical principles edition 6 problem 1.13

I'm a bit confused on this problem:
Use the Rydberg formula for atomic hydrogen to calculate the wavelength of radiation generated by the transition from n = 4 to n = 2.
In this problem, would 4 be considered n1 and 2 be n2? Or should it be the other way around to avoid any negative values?

Re: Photoelectric Effect

This is the formula for the kinetic energy of an electron. m(e-) is the mass of the electron, and v(e-) stands for the velocity of the electron.

Re: Percent Yield

You might have to, since it appears in some of the homework questions from week 1. Calculating the percent yield is simple, you just need to divide the actual yield over the theoretical yield and multiply that by 100%.

Re: Limiting Reactant vs. Reagent??? [ENDORSED]

In the textbook it states that reagents are the chemicals available in a laboratory. When a reagent is being used in a particular reaction it is called a reactant.

You need three posts per week, not one post per week.
