Re: Test 2 and Final

We will get test 2 back during the discussion of week 10. The final is cumulative, so it covers everything from week 1.

Re: pi and sigma bonds

Sigma bonds overlap horizontally while pi bonds overlap vertically.

Re: Sigma and Pi bonds

Nothing actually changes when you draw the lewis structures. You just have to acknowledge that if there's more than one bond, than one of them is sigma and the rest are pi.

Re: Test 2

In regards to studying intermolecular forces, I would say the best way is to read the chapter in the book about them and then do practice problems.

Re: Resonance and VSEPR

No they are not considered because double bonds and triple bonds are not visually represented in vsper models.

Re: Study Tips

For the upcoming tests, a good way to memorize all the shapes, angles, and generla information would be to make a chart or study the pre-made charts that already exist on google.

He spoke on this topic in my lecture when a student asked this question. He said to look at the individual molecules around it and determine each of their shape, and from there to arrange them.

Re: Trans vs Cis molecules

In regards to the specific molecule that he talked about during lecture, the trans molecule was when the r group was on opposite sides of the molecule and the cis molecule was when the r group was on the same side of the molecule. In addition, the trans isomer is non-polar while the cis isomer is po...

Re: Test Policy

I think it's fine to just put the number next to the atom. That's what a lot of the TAs did too during review sessions are office hours.

Like everyone said, I think it's easier to take it after taking 14b because you already know the material so you will have a better idea of what you are going into.

Re: What is a Resonance "Structure"

Resonance structures are all the possible lewis structures a molecule can have given its in the same position. In a resonance structure, all the bonds are the same length.

Re: Limit to expanded octet

The limit would have to do with number of electrons an entire molecule can have and the formal charges.

Re: Electron Affinity Problem

The reason that Ne doesn't have higher electron affinity is because Ne already has 8 valance electrons so it doesn't want more electrons. I think the only exception is with the noble gases.

Only if the lewis structure can have multiple ways to draw it, then you need to draw resonance.

If there are multiple ways to draw the same lewis structure with all the atoms in the same position, then the molecule has resonance structures.

Re: Dino Nuggets Problem 6a

I would go back through your calculations and make sure that your units are what they are supposed to be. For example, make sure you're converting grams to kilograms since some of the units are in kg. Also make sure you are finding unit per atom when they give it to you in unit per mole.

Re: Electromagnetic radiation

When electromagnetic radiation is emitted from the photon, the energy is released from that photon so the energy of the photon is decreased.
