Re: Lewis Acid and Lewis Base

Lewis bases donate electrons while the lewis acids will accept them.

Re: Electronegativity

Fluorine is highly reactive because it only requires 1 electron to reach stability.

Re: ionic radius

Hey! I believe that cations have the smallest ionic radius, while anions have the largest.

Re: Mass of atoms

The mass of the atoms should be in kilograms because it is the SI unit for mass.

Just keep in mind that electronegativity increases up a group and to the right across a period!

Re: What is the purpose of significant figures?

I'm pretty sure it just has to do with accuracy and precision according to what I looked up. They use sig figs in physics as well.

Re: Emitting a Photon

Yes, as the electron goes from high to normal energy I believe a photon is emitted. But since all of the energy will be emitted once it reaches a normal state no more photons should be released.

There is also a trend with the atomic radius! It tends to decrease across a period and then increase down a group.

I don't think we need it memorized, but it will probably be helpful to become familiarized with the Table and know how to interact with it.

Re: Step Up Sessions

Does anyone recommend step up sessions or UA sessions for someone who's only taken regular chemistry in high school and wants to catch up? I feel behind because I never took AP or Honors. Yes! I went to one today and feel a lot better already. I never took AP chem either and feel really overwhelmed...
