Re: Rate law with 2 reactants

one of the reactants is 0th order, so the rate only depends on the concentration of the other one. When you write the overall rate law, you only include the reactants with order>0.

Re: second and zeroth order half life "not used"

the half life changes for 2nd and 0th order reactions based on the concentration of reactants, where the half life of 1st order reactions stays the same no matter the concentration of reactants at time t, since it depends only on the concentration at time =0. For the 2nd order reaction, 1/2 life inc...

Re: Reaction Rate

i believe so, as long as it's all the same products and reactants

Re: Radioactive Decay

because the rate of decay is directly proportional to the concentration of atoms

Re: Rate constant and half life

the half life is the time it take for a reactant to lessen its concentration by 1/2. the faster (or higher) the rate of reaction, the less time it will take for the reactants to reach 1/2 of their original concentration.

Re: Writing Balanced Equations for Galvanic Cells (14.11 part d sixth edition)

you have to make sure that you're writing the cathode as a reduction reaction, so the product should have less charge than the reactant

Re: Oxidation and Reduction

Re: irreversible v reversible

If it is a reversible process (and it goes back to the original state) the change in entropy is 0. Since it has returned to its original state, there is no overall change in entropy for reversible processes.

Re: Test 2

I think it's mostly Gibbs free energy for the thermodynamics part but I'm not sure exactly what days that was taught.

Re: Irreversible expansion

yes - by the end of the reaction the external pressure and internal pressure are equal for irreversible processes

Re: Bond Enthalpy and Resonance

the carbon-carbon bonds are kind of in-between double and single bonds because of resonance, but there a specific bond enthalpy (518 kJ/mol) for carbon with a single bond and a dashed line on top, that represents the resonance of 3 C-C and 3 C=C bonds.

Re: enthalpy and internal energy

internal energy is the kinetic energy of the particles in a system, enthalpy (heat released/absorbed) is the internal energy plus the (pressure * volume) of the system

Re: the relation b/t change in H and change in U

when you calculate delta H you use delta U + P (deltaV). When delta U is negative and you add P*deltaV to it to get delta H, enthalpy becomes less negative than delta U.
