Re: Test 3 Q3D

you should draw the two pi bonds next to each other because pi bonds prevent rotation. they are essentially two electron density regions that are on each side of the intermolecular axis

How are you able to tell the maximum number of places on the ligand that can bind simultaneously to a single metal center for CO3 2-? Do you have to draw out the lewis structure?

17.29 6th edition

When do you write (OH2) vs (H2O)? I thought since the O is the element that is bonding, you write OH2, but the solutions show that you write H2O. Can someone please explain?

When atoms are bound together they release energy, so they have less energy than an atom that is not bounded with another atom.

Re: Degeneracy

Degenerate means that all of the orbitals of a shell have the same energy. The textbook also says (on p.36 of 6th edition) that the degeneracy orbitals with the same principal quantum number but different orbital angular momentum values is true only of the hydrogen atom and one-electron ions like he...

Re: HW 1.3

I think C is the correct answer because frequency decreases causing a change in the wavelength which causes the slope of the wave to also decrease as a result.

Re: Balancing reactions tips

I usually start by writing all of the coefficients on the side of the reaction that they occur.
Then I continue balancing both sides starting with the element in the least amount.
