What should we know for the final?

Are there any specific biological examples that we need to know for the final? In terms of structure, function, etc.

Re: Final [ENDORSED]

I feel like there might be a practice final because Lyndon, who did the Garlic Bread midterm questions last time, has a session on Friday. He might tell us in class during one of the lectures this week. Also, I assume that the TAs and UAs will also go over practice final questions during their own s...

Speed of light

When doing calculations, should we use 2.99792 × 108 m.s-1 or 3.00 × 108 m.s-1 for the speed of light?
I used the 3.00 × 108 m.s-1 on the midterm and got an answer that was two hundredths off and got it marked wrong, so what should be the accurate number to use?

Re: Shortcut

The shortcut is basically to first count how many electrons are surrounding a single atom. For example, when looking at the formal charge for Cl in PCl 5 , you would count that there are 6 lone electrons and then one electron right next to the Cl that is being shared with the P (in other words, only...

Does this mean the uncertainty is 3x10^6? if so, does delta v = 2(3x10^6)?

Re: Periodic table

I know that ionization energy is the energy needed to remove an electron from an atom. The further away the electron is from the nucleus, the easier it is to remove the electron. Ionization energies decrease down a group and increase across a period.

As the light source is increased in intensity, then the number of electrons ejected increases. Light intensity is proportional to the number of electrons ejected.

Re: Sig Figs in the Middle of a Problem

It is better to round off at the end of the problem, instead of in the middle of a calculation, to ensure accuracy. Use as many digits as possible in the middle of a calculation and just carry those numbers over until you're at the end of the problem.

Re: When to use H vs H2

I believe you do multiply by 2 when using H2. Because there are two atoms of hydrogen, you would multiply the molar mass of 1 H atom by 2 to get the total molar mass of H2.
