Re: Multi-Step Limiting Reactant

A UA did a problem where the reaction was 2 steps, and each step had its own limiting reactant.

Re: Excess reactant affecting limiting reactant

Yes, if oxygen is in excess, then the other reactant would be the limiting one.

Re: Non Metals

Non-metals typically have a much higher electronegativity than metals, and I learned from my life science class, that as the number of protons increases, the electrons are held more tightly by the atom, if it makes sense. Since the difference in electronegativity is so big, the non-metal "steal...

Re: What n1 and n2 represents in the Rydberg Equation?

In the Rydberg equation, is n1 always the initial and n2 always the final? or is n1 always just the lowest energy value and n2 the highest? Hi Annabelle! if you are using the frequency is equal to Rydberg's constant((1/(n162)) - (1/(n2^2))), then yes, n1 will always be the initial quantum energy le...

Calculate the work function, Φ, of this metal.

When a metal was exposed to photons at a frequency of 1.34×1015 s−1, electrons were emitted with a maximum kinetic energy of 4.00×10−19 J.
Calculate the work function, Φ, of this metal.

How should I do this problem?

Re: Fractions

We can only use integers for moles/stoichiometric coefficients. I don't know if you'll get points taken off if you leave it as a fraction. But you should change the fractions into integers to be on the safe side :)

Re: How much energy is required to remove an electron from one sodium atom?

You have to use the work energy given in the question, but since it's given in kJ/mol, you have to convert it to find the amount of energy for only a single sodium atom. You'd convert 150.6 kJ/mol to 150600J/mol and then divide that by Avogadro's number to find the energy needed in joules. 150.6 kJ...

Re: Taking Notes on Textbook Readings

Since I am taking chem after 2 years, I like to take notes. Also, I think that even if you know the subject taking notes engrains it into your mind and you can use this knowledge when the course gets more challenging. However, you're not required to take notes. :)

How much energy is required to remove an electron from one sodium atom?

Light hits a sodium metal surface and the velocity of the ejected electron is 6.61 x 105 m.s-1. The work function for sodium is 150.6 kJ.mol-1. In the previous step, it required me to calculate the kinetic energy which was: 1.99 x 10^-19 J. In this step the question is asking: How much energy is req...
