how do you know when to put 0 for the initial concentration of the product or when to write in a concentration that is given? I thought it was always 0 since the reaction doesn't occur yet but sometimes you put in a concentration... not sure if this makes sense but thank you!

Re: Photoelectric Effect - Terms and Definitions

So a wavelength is the literal length of the wave, or how long it actually is, where the frequency is how many waves pass a certain point in a certain amount of time. Also, the two terms are directly related, so waves with higher frequencies have shorter wavelengths while those with lower frequencie...

Re: Chemical Formulas of Compounds

So far no one has told us we need to memorize them. Also, in one of Lavelle's lectures he mentioned that most things you need should be given to you in the problem, and the point of this class is to be able to use what is given to problem solve, not just memorize a bunch of things, so I think you're...

molar mass vs molecular mass

This is probably a stupid question but can someone confirm whether or not there's a difference btw molar mass and molecular mass or if it's different or the same to calculate them in problems. I just wanna be sure. Thank you!

Re: VInitial and VFinal

I believe this formula is consistently used for most problems, however other formulas may come into play in the future as we get into more advanced topics and problems. But yes it’s pretty much the basic one and always used.
