### Midterm Solution

I am looking at question number two on the midterm and I am confused by the solution. For the ratios it says they are 1.4:1.2:1
To get 1.4 you divide the moles of co2 by the moles of o2
But to get 1.2 you have to divide the grams of H2O by the moles of O2

Why would you do this?

### Question 3.119

This is also in example box 3.5, but the lewis structure for ozone has one single and one double bond. Is the reason why there is one bond length, because of resonance? Because you can draw two lewis structures with different orientations does the bond length come out as one length in between that o...

### Re: Coordination Number

Coordination numbers are normally between two and nine. The number of bonds depends on the size, charge, and electron configuration of the metal ion and the ligands. Probably due to some very specific scenario(s) you could have one. But for simplicity and the sake of this class I would say no.

### Re: Which chapters can we do for homework?

It depends on your TA, but I don't think it matters too much as long as you're doing problems from the recent chapters, and not repeating homework problems. I don't see there being a problem with you doing problems from chapter 3.

### Re: Energy=pc

You can't treat these equations equally, in other words you cant just add an exponent or multiply by one half. If you tried to equate 1/2mv^2 it would look like 1/2pc^2. I see what you're saying because p=mv. However, in the first equation you're squaring velocity, but not squaring mass. You can't s...

For this question why do we multiply by four? I know to find the frequency we multiply R by (1/n1^2)-(1/n2^2). But in the answer it is also multiplied by four. I think it has to do with z^2 in the question, but i'm still confused.

### Re: Exercise 1B 19

A lot of people seem to also be struggling between using the debroglie equation and kinetic energy. The equation you attempted to use does not allow us to solve for wavelength. The de broglie equation λ = h/mv, uses plancks constant, mass, and velocity to solve for wavelength.

The wave function predicts statistically where an electron will be at a certain time. The wave function is a probability so it is still largely a "theory" which makes it difficult to understand. However, an orbital is a mathematical function that describes the wave-like behavior of the ele...

### Re: Homework Question 1.33 (6th Ed)

The Debrogile equation solves for wavelength using Planck's constant, the mass of a particle, and velocity. The velocity is given in the problem, and 9.10938356 × 10-31 kilograms is the mass of an electron (which can just be googled honestly). So you you just divide plancks constant by the velocity ...
