Re: 4f, 5f Electron Configurations

you could think about it as f-d-s-p i guess. for ex, if you wanted the electron configuration for gold (Au), you would write it as [Xe]4f^14 5d^10 6s^1. you would do the same thing for 5f too

Re: Textbook question 2A.1

the number of valence electrons is 5 because the electron configuration for Sb is [Kr]4d^10 5s^2 5p^3. there are 5 valence electrons because you would add the 2 electrons in the s orbital and the 3 electrons in the p orbital to get 5.

Re: Formal Charges on Atoms Summed in Ions?

can you provide an example? if it's just adding formal charges then yes they do cancel out.

there's not many exceptions so i think if you just memorize them, you shouldn't have a problem with it

how come in some electron configurations the d-orbital comes before the s-orbital like in titanium?

do we have to know all of the different types of lewis structures for one molecule or is there a specific lewis structure that we need to know for each molecule?

bond lengths

professor lavelle said something about how double bond lengths are 1.2 A and how single bond lengths are 1.4 A. how come the bond lengths were 1.24 A for the example from today's lecture?

also to correct myself in the first post, i meant the equation c=v*wavelength not c=v/wavelength! sorry!

Re: why do we use these equations?

so if you are given frequency, then you would use the equation c=v*wavelength to find the wavelength and then use that to find the energy?

Re: Sodium Vapor Lamps (1.19 hw) [ENDORSED]

b) First, you convert mg to g 5.00 mg * (1g/1000mg) = 5.00 x 10^-3 g of Na Since, it's asking for the how much energy is emitted by an excited SODIUM, you use the molar mass of Na 5.00x10^-3 g Na * (1 mol Na/ 23g Na) * (6.022 x10^23 atoms Na/ 1 g Na) = 1.31 x10^20 atoms of Na (1.31 x10^20 atoms Na)...

why do we use these equations?

for problem 1B.7, why do we use both c=v/wavelength and E=hv and combine it into one equation? why does using the combined equation give us the energy and not the E=hv equation?

the question asks what happens when the frequency of electromagnetic radiation decreases. is my reasoning correct by saying when the frequency decreases, the wavelength increases which then decreases the overall speed?

Re: E 17

for part a and b, you would use the molar mass of the element to calculate the number of moles in each sample of the element. for part c, you would use avogadro's number to calculate the amount of moles in amount given.
