Since HCl is a strong acid, then we know that it will 100% dissociate, which tells us that the moles of HCl must be equal to the moles of hydronium ions. So, we can use the volume and molarity given to calculate the moles of hydronium ions present. After calculating the number of moles, divide it by...

### Re: 6C.17

Hypobromite ion, BrO-, is a conjugate base of a weak acid, and therefore it must be a strong base. Morphine, C17H19O3N, has a lone pair located on the nitrogen, so it's a weaker base.

### Re: 1A.11 What is common to each series that groups their spectral lines together?

The common aspect in each series is that the energy levels from which an electron starts or returns to is the same for anything in that series. For example, in the Balmer series, the electrons always return from or start from the energy level n=2. Same goes for the Lyman series, where e- start or re...

### Re: 1A.15

Because the emission is ultraviolet, then we know that this transition is happening in the Lyman series. So the final energy level is going to be n=1. The initial energy level could be anything greater than 1. You can then use Rydberg's equation to find n1.

Yes, you would be able to use a periodic table. So ionization energy increases going up a periodic table and increases going left to right.

### Re: Positive & Negative Signs on Energy Levels

The negative sign of energy just means that the electron of that atom has a lower energy than the free electron which is zero energy.

### Re: Are these equations only specific to H-atoms?

For the bohr frequency condition, the equation contains Rydberg's constant (3.29x10^15 Hz); and that constant only works on hydrogen atoms or hydrogen-like atoms such as He+.

### Re: Electron configuration order

I agree with the commenter before me. The position of the 3d orbital is at a higher level than the 4s orbital; therefore, the 4s orbital would fill up before the the 3d orbital.

### Re: G23

I got a concentration of 0.13 M of chloride ions. I do not think it matters because when both of these compounds dissociate the mole ratio between the compound and Cl- is 1:1. For example, 1 mole of sodium chloride would dissociate to 1 mole of Na+ and 1 mole of Cl-, so there's no need to separate t...
