Re: How to draw dipoles

Also, sif a molecule has more then 1 kind of dipole, how do you determine what kind they are?

Determining Acidity or Basic

Is the only way to determine if a compound is acidic or basic through looking at the carboxyl group attached/not attached?

Re: induced-dipole

Why does the other atom induce the dipole? Why is this different then induced-dipole induced-dipole?

Re: Unique Reaction Rates [ENDORSED]

The unique rate has to do with the stoichiometric coefficients because it stays the same (proportionality)

Re: Higher Electron Affinity Nitrogen or Carbon

Carbon has a greater affinity for an electron than nitrogen because the half filled p subshell is more stable

Re: DeBroglie Equation Units

All of the equations are in terms of the SI units, and the variations of these units (ex kilomoters) need to be changed into the SI units before calculating.

Is there a way to know if a compound is an acid or a base by purely looking at the Lewis structure?

Re: Test 2 Equations

They give us the sheet with all of the basic equations on it, but you should memorize the variations of the equations so that the test goes faster for yourself!

Re: Class Grades

Also, on the syllabus it gives a layout of the exact number of points and the categories that come from, so if you keep track of your test and homework grade you should know pretty well what you should get around!

Re: Light Intensity

Because the intensity of the light corresponds to the amplitude of the wave, the wave intensity for an electromagnetic wave is used when the question requires some knowledge about the amplitude.

Re: Atomic Radius

The atomic radius is the total distance from an atom’s nucleus to the outermost orbital of electron, while the covalent radius is only present if there is a covalent bond involved. If there is, the covalent radius is half the distance between 2 nuclei of the atoms of the same element. Hope that helps!

Re: Unit Conversions

I make flashcards for the basic SI units and go though until I have them all memorized because it's such a useful thing! You can also make phrases that you'd remember that have something to do with them. Then to remember how to do conversions, I always use the units in the problem and make sure by t...
