Re: 1B.7

You would first find the number of moles of sodium atoms that 5.00 mg contains by dividing 5.00 mg by sodium's molar mass, then multiply that value by avogardo's number because that would transform the number of moles to the number of atoms that 5.00 mg of NA is. Finally, multiply that value by the ...

Re: Audio Visual Focus Modules

I think these are the only modules that he has made. I'm not 100% sure but he probably would have put all the modules he had up on his website no matter the unit we're on. Maybe your TA knows?

Module Q 23

23. You are caught in a radar trap and hope to show that the speed measured by the radar gun is in error due to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. If you assume that the uncertainty in your position was +/- 5 m when your speed was measured, and that the car has a mass of 2150 kg, what is your cal...

Re: Units?

It depends on the information given in the question. If the original or diluted solution volume is given in mL, then use mL. But, if it's given in L use L. Usually though they'll specify and if not, you can use L!

post module assessment Q35B

Molybdenum metal must absorb radiation with a minimum frequency of 1.09 x 10^15 s-1 before it can emit an electron from its surface. If molybdenum is irradiated with 194 nm light, what is the maximum possible kinetic energy of the emitted electrons? I'm pretty sure we have to solve the problem using...

Spectral line energy

When an electron drops from a higher energy level to a lower energy level, why isn't the energy given off positive? Why is negative? Because wouldn't it have extra energy that can be given off now that it's going down?

Question E29

A chemist measured out 8.61 g of copper(II) chloride tetrahydrate, CuCl2 * 4H2O. (a). How many moles of CuCl2 * 4H2O were measured out? (b). How many moles of Cl- ions are present in the sample? (c). How many H2O molecules are present in the sample? (d). What fraction of the total mass of the sample...

Re: Solutions Manual

@katie you can find a solutions manual for the 6th edition on amazon and the 7th edition on textbooks.com! Also for the module there aren't solutions but u can always ask about a specific question in the module here and people will reply with step by step solutions and help :)
