Re: Zero Order Reactions

In zero order, the rate only depends on k. The concentration does not affect the rate.

Re: speed of reaction based on activation energy

It is because since you need more energy to build up, the longer it takes to acquire the energy for the reaction to take place.

It means Cu2+ is a stronger oxidizing agent which means it has a high E reduction potential.

Re: Balancing Rules for Redox Reactions

In acidic solutions, add H20 to balance oxygen atoms, and add H+ to balance hydrogen atoms.

Re: balancing basic half reactions

You have to balance the H20 with H+ on the other side, but since it's a basic solution, you have to add OH- to the side you added H+ to, which then just becomes H2O.

Re: oxidized vs oxidizing agent

Oxidized: losing electrons
Oxidizing agent: the molecule that is doing the oxidation, also the one that is being reduced (gaining electrons)

Re: Cell Diagram

The comma separates those in the same phase whereas the single line separates those of different states (ie (s)|(aq)).

The double line separates the electrodes.

Re: Finding Heat

You can use it interchangeably since q=mCdeltaT asks for the CHANGE in temperature so the change in celsius is the same as the change in K.

Re: Work Done By vs. On

Done on is + (positive), because the surroundings are releasing energy for the system to absorb the energy.
Done by is - (negative), because the system has to use their energy which results in a release which is negative.

Enthalpy is the heat absorbed/released in a reaction. Phase changes are a physical reactions so they also have enthalpies.

Re: Universe as a Thermodynamic System

A type of system is determined depending on whether it exchanges matter and energy with the surroundings. Since there's no surroundings around the universe, there's no exchange of matter and energy which makes it isolated.

Re: Kw

a pH of 7 is neutral. Water at room temperature (25C) has a pH of 7, however depending on the temperature change, the pH can slightly increase or decrease. For example, when you boil water the pH slightly decreases (more acidic) due to the increase of ionization.
