Re: pseudo rate laws

The overall order of the pseudo-reaction is dependent on the order of the species with the highest concentration.

Deriving

So I’m really confused on what level of derivation we’re expected to do on the final. I’d expect we’d only have to derive equations if the one that we need isn’t on the equation sheet?

Re: Order for Cell Diagram

Anode half reaction is on the left side of the double line with the molecule losing electrons on the left side of the single line. The cathode half reaction is on the right side of the double line with the molecule gaining the electrons on the left side of the single line.

E cell spontaneity

When E(cell) is less than 0, the reverse cell reaction is spontaneous. Is it valid to say that the “forward reaction is not spontaneous”

Re: Endergonic vs. Endothermic

“Gonic” refers to change in Gibbs free energy and “thermic” refers to change in enthalpy. When delta G is less that 0 it is spontaneous and exergonic and when it is greater than 0 it is not spontaneous and endergonic

Example 19.14 (6th edition)

In this example in the textbook the first step of solving the problem was finding the standard enthalpy of formation in which they multiplied by the number of moles. However, when they applied the value they found into Gibb’s equation, they multiplied by the number of miles again. Why is that?

Re: Molar Heat Capacity

To expand on the previous two replies, the book gave the example of argon which has a constant volume heat capaccitg of 12.8, so when using the equation, you get 12.8 + 8.3= 21.1 for the constant pressure value. That is 65% greater than the constant volume value.

Re: acids and bases

Other than understanding, when given the Ka/Kb, the greater the Ka(or Kb) the stronger than acid then it is just best to memorize them. And since there aren't many it should be easy and soon enough you'll be able to easily identify a strong acid or base.

Re: the word shifted

I believe he still prefers if we use the term "favors." So, when more reactant is added to a reaction, more product will form so the reaction will favor the products.

Re: 5.33

An increase in the equilibrium constant suggests the reaction is favoring the products. In order to produce more product, the reaction requires heat which makes it endothermic
