### Re: Bent Shape

Bent shape can have one or two lone pairs. One lone pair turns a trigonal planar into a bent molecule and two lone pairs turn a tetrahedral into a bent molecule.

### Re: 6C.17

We know that the smaller the pKb of a base, the stronger the base. Using chart 6C.2 from the textbook, we find that pKb of morphine is 5.79. In order to find the pkb of BrO-, we need to take the pKw (which is the equilibrium of pure water) and subtract the pKa of the conjugate acid of BrO- (which is...

### Re: 6C.17

Morphine consists of a nitrogen atom with a lone electron pair. Therefore, morphine is a weak base. Since BrO- is a conjugate base for the weak hypobromous acid, it must be a strong base. Therefore, BrO- is a stronger base than morphine.

### Re: pKa vs Ka

Ka is the acid dissociation constant. Using the formula to calculate pH, we know that p is -log. Therefore, pKa is the -log of the dissociation constant.

### Re: pKb and pKa

Kb value is the value of the dissociation constant of a base. Ka is the value of the dissociation constant of an acid. p is the negative log of the dissociation constant. The lower the pKa or pKb value, the stronger the acid or base. The relation between pKa and pKb is that the sum of their values e...

### Re: Hydrogen Bonding/Pi bonds

A Hydrogen bond is a weak bond resulting from the proton's electrostatic attraction in one atom and the electronegativity of another atom. A pi bond is a covalent bond between the unbound p-orbitals of two atom's and restricts the rotation of the atoms.

### Re: Acids

Strong acids fully dissolve into its ions in water, so they have a high concentration of ions in a solution. This, the bonds between the hydrogen atom and another atom of the molecule are weak. Ions are easily broken apart by strong acids. Weak acids partially dissociated into its ions in water, so ...

### Re: Octahedral

An octahedron is a shape that consists of two pyramids who share a base. If you look at the molecule shape of an octahedral, it resembles the shape of an octahedron. Hence the name.

### Re: Lone pairs

Electron pairs in bonding pairs repel lone pair electrons, so in the VSEPR model, electron pairs will be placed as far away from each other as possible.

### Re: Repulsion strength and Bond Angles

Since the repulsion strength of lone pairs are stronger than the repulsion strength of bonding pairs, the molecule with the lone pair will have more bent bond angles

### Re: 3F.5 c)

Larger atoms have more electrons and higher polarizability. As polarizability increases, the dispersion forces grow stronger. Thus, the molecules attract each other more and increase the strength of intermolecular bonds. Stronger bonds mean higher boiling/melting point, so larger atoms have higher m...

### Re: Ionization Energy vs. Electronegativity

Ionization Energy and Electronegativity are the inverse of each other. Electronegativity is an atom's tendency to attract an electron. In contrast, the ionization energy is the energy needed to remove an electron from an atom. Since having more tendency to attract an electron means that the atom has...

### Re: Polarizing Power

If cations have the same radius, then the polarizing power is dependent on the charge. The higher the charge, the larger the polarizing power. If cations have the same charge, then the polarizing power is inversely proportional to the size of the radius. The smaller the radius, the larger the polari...

Since both of the lewis structures are the same and bond length increases with atomic size, the PF bond in PF3 would be longer since phosphorus is larger than nitrogen

### Re: Homework 1B.15

The photon needs enough energy to release the electron from the surface and move at 3.6*10^3 km.s^-1. The equation for the kinetic energy of the electron is 1/2mv^2, so the energy of the photon will be (1.66*10*-17J) + (1/2(9.11*10^-31kg)(3.6*10*6m.s^-1)^2=2.25*10^-17J.
