Re: Electrode Mass

Changing the concentration of one solution in the cell will increase the voltage potential of the cell because you are putting the system further out of equilibrium. Because the concentration in only one side of the cell has changed, the concentration gradient across both sides of the cell increases.

Radical and Biradical?

Can someone explain to me what we need to know about Radical and Biradical for the midterm. I did not understand what he went over in lecture? Do they have to do with drawing the lewis structures.

Exceptions For Drawing Structures

What are the main exceptions that we need to know for this class regarding drawing the structures? We talked about them in my section but I didn't understand what was exactly happening. If anyone could explain this to me it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

1.B.16

The work function for chromium metal is 4.37 eV. What wavelength of radiation must be used to eject electrons with a velocity of 1.5 x 10^3 km*s^-1? Has anyone solved this problem, and if so what steps did you take to get to your answer? I used the formula kinetic energy = energy of photon - work fu...

Energy Level transition in hydrogen atom

I did a practice problem (which I will post here) but I am not sure whether I went about it the right way. If someone could please tell me if my answer and process is correct, it would be much appreciated. PROBLEM : An excited hydrogen atom emits light with frequency of 1.14 x 10^14 Hz to reach the ...

Re: Balmer and Lyman Series

The reason is because as the principle quantum number increases (n) the energy increases due to it being further from the nucleus

Calculating the probability of finding an electron at a certain location

I am having trouble understanding the topic presented in Section 1D.4 having to do with the equation presented for finding the probability of an electron. If anyone could clarify this section for me it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Question about electron configurations for multi electron atoms

I saw on an example online that for the electron configuration of some metals electrons are donated from the s block? I saw this specifically for silver and wanted to know how often this occurs and how much we should take this into consideration when doing our work.

Thanks

Writing Electron Configurations

When writing out our electron configurations do we always follow the order of s,p,d,f? I have seen some answers in which the order is reversed. Are both ways correct, if not which one is?

Thanks!

Orbital energy levels

This post is in reference to question number 1E5 Part d.

Is it true that the Z eff e would be less for p orbital electrons because they experience more shielding by the s orbital electrons?

(Question Pasted Below) For my answer I got C. Im not sure whether or not my explanation for the answer is adequate or not. I said that since there is a decrease in the frequency the waves become longer and that causes the amplitude of the wave to decrease. Since the amplitude decreases it lowers th...

Re: Unclear on Law of Conservation of Mass

There is the same number of moles of Na, H, and O. This equation does abide by the law of conservation of mass because the mass is equal on both sides.
