### Re: 4.5

Find the amount of heat transferred to ice in 0.5hrs using q=mCdeltaT. You will get 3135J transferred in 0.5 hrs. Then use dimensional analysis to find how many joules are transferred in 10hrs. You get 62.7kJ transferred in 10hrs. Then divide 62.7kJ by 8.33 moles and get 7.53kJ/mol for enthalpy of f...

### Re: Intermolecular Forces

The size of the molecule affects intermolecular forces. If the molecule is large, it will have more attractive intermolecular forces, which can cause it to change phase and become more condensed (liquid, solid).

### Re: polarizability

The higher polarizability of a molecule, the stronger intermolecular forces/attractions there will be, so it will be harder to break bonds. Which means its melting point and boiling point will be high.

For the actual CO2 structure (the one with double bonds), the FC on O and C atoms are all 0.

For the other CO2 structure (the one with the triple bond), the FC on the O atoms are -1 and 1.

The actual CO2 structure is "more important" because it has lower energy since the FCs are all 0

It's not possible because if l=0, then ml can only be 0. Values of ml are -l through l. Since l is 0, ml can only be 0. We just need to know that each ml value corresponds to a different orbital in the subshell.
