Re: Reversible vs Irreversible

Here's a couple more differences:
- T is constant in a reversible pathway but changes along an irreversible pathway
- V increases and P decreases during a reversible run but for irreversible work is done against a constant P
- more work is done in a reversible reaction than irreversible

Re: 7E7

Catalysits are not soncumed. Intermediates are consumed. For intermediates you see it as the product in one of the steps and reactant in another step, so it cancels out. This is not the case for catalysts, they don't "cancel out" in this way.

How do you find what A is in the term ln(A) in the Arrhenius equation. Like if you are using the Arrhenius equation to solve for Ea or K how do you know what to plug in for ln(A)? Is there some sort of table that has A values for different runs in the book? Or do we solve for that algebraically?

E^o(cell)=E^o(cathode)-E^o(anode) which is -0.689=E^o(cathode)+0.34. Then you solve for E^o(cathode)

H bonds and Intermolecular Forces

So with hydrogen bonds and the intermolecular forces (ion-dipole, dipole-induced dipole, etc.) are electrons actually being transferred from one atom to another or shared between atoms or is it all just based on attraction?

Re: Interaction between ions and molecules

They are the attractive forces responsible for condensed phase (liquid and solid). They include:
ion-ion
ion-dipole
dipole-dipole
dipole-induced dipole
induced dipole-induced dipole

How do we know which elements/when they can have more than 8 valence electrons?

Re: Electronegativity difference >1.5 but <2

If the electronegativity difference is between 1.5 and 2 then you can't say whether it is covalent or ionic.

Resonance structure just shows all the possible lewis structure for a molecule. NH4 does not have resonance.

electrons have such a small mass that the mass of the atom is essentially the same as the ion.

The atomic radius trend and ionization energy applies to the noble gasses but electron affinity and electronegativity does not.

Re: How does one find a most likely charge for ions for a given element?

Count the valence electrons and if the number is closer to 8, it gains however many it needs to reach 8. If it is closer to 0, it loses however many necessary to get to 0. For d block elements, valence electrons in the s orbit move down to the d orbit and then it will gain however many electrons nee...

Number of Chemistry Community Posts

As of right now, if we've been posting at least 5 times each week, how many posts should we have made in total? Because I have been posting 5 times a week and have a total of 15 posts but I feel like we've been doing this for more than 3 weeks or is 15 correct?

Re: Resonance Hybrid

Yeah resonance is a blending of structures with the same arrangement of atoms but a different arrangement of electrons. It spreads multiple bond characteristics over a molecule and essentially "blends" the different Lewis Dot structures for that molecule.

electron configuration for ions

how come when the book asks you to give the ground-state electron configuration for Ni^2+, the answer is [Ar]3d^8 and not [Ar]3d^64s^2?

The Electron affinity= energy of the atom - the energy of the anion created when the atom gains a(n) electron(s)

Yes, going down the table adds shells so the atomic radius gets bigger and the quantum number n increases.

For chromium the valence electrons would be both the electrons in the 4s and 3d state because chromium has 6 valence electrons.

Mass of a neutron (1B.23)

For problem 1B.23 it gives the wavelength of a neutron and asks you to find the velocity. I used De Broglies Equation (wavelength= h/(mass x velocity) and plugged in h and wavelength to solve for velocity, but how do I find the mass of the neutron?

On the test we took the formulas were given but I would memorize them just in case and also understanding the formulas helps you understand the concepts. As for the constants- I think those will always be given.
