Re: 3F.3

As CH4 and CCl4 are symmetrical (and tetrahedral) they are nonpolar and dipole dipole interactions will not be that important. However, they still have London dispersion forces despite being nonpolar.

Ozone is polar as it is bent, therefore it has a net dipole.

Re: 3F.5

To finish off this problem,

C. CHI3 will have a higher melting point because iodine is bigger than chlorine with more electrons and therefore higher IMFs.
D. Methanol will have a higher melting point because of the presence of Hydrogen bonds.

As mass is on the denominator for deBroglie wavelength calculations, a lower mass atom will have a longer wavelength as it is inversely proportional.

Re: how to do 1.D.23?

I think you may have looked at the answer key incorrectly, mine says the right answer. Anyways, the thing that really matters is the l value, as it determines the orientation of the different orbitals. An l of 1 corresponds to a p orbital, which can be oriented 3 ways. When the m l is given, then th...

Hopefully this helps. Also there is a chemistry stackexchange post on this topic with helpful images. If electrons share the value n, it is part of a shell. If electrons share n and l, it is part of the same sub-shell. If electrons share n, l and ml then it is in the same orbital. https://chemistry....

Re: l values

l can go up to n-1, but in this class, we are only required to know up to the f orbital. Most likely we won't even see f orbitals as it doesn't really apply to living systems.

With some exceptions where the s orbital is lower energy, since the d orbital is in a different shell you order that first. Eg. 4d then 5s.

Re: 1B.7 Part c

As you are given 1 mol of photons, and the energy per photon is calculated in part A, you take the energy (part A) in J/photon multiplied by 6.022 photons/mol which would yield the units J/mol, which is what the answer is looking for. You multiply this my 1 mol, and get the answer.

Re: Planck's Constant

Planck's constant relates the energy in one photon of electromagnetic radiation to the frequency of that radiation. m2*kg/s is the same as Joule*second, as a joule is a kg *m2*s-2, so this multiplied by frequency in Hz (or s-1) would yield energy.

You would want to take 32W * 2 seconds and divide it by your result from the energy released by each photon. You then should take the photons you have and divide by 6.022 *10^23 photons/mol, leaving you with moles of photons.

As Romina said, the Lyman series refers to UV light, which has more energy than the visible light spectrum which is why it corresponds to going from n=1 to n=3, for example. The further away an electron is from the nucleus, less energy is required to jump to the next level, so lower energy light wil...
