A black body is a body that absorbs all electromagnetic radiation such that nothing can escape it and no radiation can resist being "sucked in" per say

E.23 Part B

I am confused as to how the scientific notation would affect the problem. For some reason I cannot seem to have the right scientific notation. I understand the process and work in regards to the problem, however I can't seem to be able to denote the values in correct scientific notation.

Re: Etext Access for Chem Book

I got my book online but I didn't have a problem. Maybe contact your book supplier/whoever you got it from?

Re: Homework Question G13

You multiply by .1L because we need to solve for the mols. We use the formula .05M= (x mols)/.1L
