if the reactants and products of the half-reaction are not in solid form, you need some type of solid metal as the electrode. Usually, you use Pt(s) because it is a fairly non-reactive metal.

Re: effective nuclear charge

The effective nuclear charge is the net charge of the protons in the nucleus after taking into account the electron shielding. If you take away some of the electrons, the amount of electron shielding will decrease and the higher your effective nuclear charge will be.

Re: central atom

The central atoms should be the least electronegative atom. My TA also mentioned that if you have a molecule and its like one of an element and 4 of another then the central atom will probably be the element that only has one.

Re: Electron configuration for D block

You only fill the 3d orbital before finishing the 4s orbital for Chromium and Copper (for this class because we don't go past the first row of the d-block). This happens because Cr almost has a half-filled d orbital and copper almost has a fully filled d orbital. A half or fully filled d orbital is ...

Re: electron configuration

I think Copper and Chromium are the exceptions we have to worry about for this class. They are different because they almost have a half-filled or filled d orbital. Having a half-filled or filled d orbital is more stable than the filled 4 s orbital and so it takes one of the 4s electrons. The electr...

Yes the trend for ionization energy also increases as you go up and to the right.

Re: Spins

Based on Hund's Rule, electrons will always start parallel and fill up all of the orbitals with only one electron before going back and pairing up.

Re: Balmer and Lyman Series

The 1 and 2 are the names of the energy levels. It not like final and initial. When an excited electron starts at some higher level (2,3,4 or 5) and falls to the 1 energy level then it is in the Lyman series. When the excited electron starts at some higher level (3,4,or 5) and falls to the 2 energy ...

Re: Photoelectric Effect

An electron is not ejected because increasing the light's intensity only increases the number of photons. If your 10 photons don't have enough energy, adding 50 more of the same energy won't cause the electrons to eject. You must increase the energy of each of the photons allowing each to overcome t...

Re: Balancing equations.

I would say to try to balance the most difficult molecules first. Some molecules like O2 that are just one element can be easily adjusted without effecting other things you have previously balanced. If you leave these towards the end, then you will have to do less adjusting overall.

Re: Combustion Analysis

If it is a hydrocarbon that is combusting and it combusts completely, then its the hydrocarbon and O2 on the reactant side and CO2 and H2O on the product side.
