### 1D 15

what does principal and orbital angular momentum stand for? is n principal momentum and l orbital angular momentum?

the mass of an electron is given to you m(e) = 9.1095 x 10^-31 kg

### when to use which formula

when would you use En = - hR / n^2 or En = h^2n^2/8mL^2?

### Re: 1B.15

1/2mV^2=hv (because you V (velocity), mass of the electron, and H (which is a constant) then you know the frequency --> c = (v)(wavelength)

### detectability of waves

to which size did Professor Lavelle say that the waves are detectable? Was it 10^-18 or 16?

### Hydrogen

what are the principal quantum levels of the H-atom? I know they exist and that electrons go from one level to another, but why do these levels exist? and what are they? I am a little confused! :)

### Re: Steps to calculating Molecular Formulas

Our TA said to just go with "your feeling"; like 3.9 is close enough, but 3.8 logically not. I would just always do the step, where you divide the numbers by the smallest one to be sure

### Re: Calculating Molar Mass in Limiting Reactant Problem

can you be more specific? are you talking about the CaC2 + 2H2O --> Ca(OH)2 + C2H2 example? :)

### Re: Combustion Question on Modules

you should probably remember that for combustion of butane (or something else) it's always: x mole of Butane (or methane..) + x mole of O2 --> x mole of CO2 + x mole of H2O
