psi vs psi^2

Hi can someone further explain the difference between psi and psi^2?

Re: 1A.3

so C would be interpreted as the following

because the electrical field corresponds to the amplitude; and so as the frequency decreases the waves broaden and the extent of the change decreases.

Re: Balmer vs. Lyman Lines (1A.11)

In each of these series, the principal quantum number for the lower energy number involved is the same for each absorption line. Thus, for the Lyman series, the lower energy level is n=1; for the Balmer series n=2 for Paschen series n=3 and for the Brackett series n=4.

Re: Combining Different Equations

We are allowed to combine equations when they are equal to each other. For example x=2 for x+2=? it would be 2+2=4 because we substitute the variable for the known. This also happens for the equation you listed. Hopefully, this is what you are referring to

Re: Final Jitters

Usually to calm myself, I like to do something that is fun for me. Either that be I watch a show or go to the gym just to get a breather and forget about all the anxieties. Goodluck

Re: Periodic Table

I might be completely wrong so anyone correct me if I'm wrong but it might be the number of isotopes that exists?

I'm not sure if I misinterpreted your post but for your explanation it would be that as frequency decreases then the waves broaden and the extent of the change decreases. This is because electric field corresponds to the amplitude

Re: G7

Yes so afterwards what you would do is find the mass of water by subtracting 510g-27.8g= 482.2G H2O

and the way to describe it would be that you measure 482g H2O on a balance and then pour it in a beaker. Then you weigh 27.8g of KNO3 and mix it with water until it dissolves.

50 Min test

I'm barley learning how to navigate Chemistry community so sorry if this post is not in the correct place buy anyways..

For the 50 min test will it take place during class (if so when) or during our discussion section??
