Re: Adding Helium

when adding an inert gas, all the important aspects that we look at for chemical reactions (moles of P and R, concentrations of P and R, partial pressure, etc) don't change. If those don't change, then the reaction will not be perturbed and it will not have to shift.

Re: Light Intensity

increasing intensity of light means increasing the number of photons which does make the light brighter. the important point here is that the energy of the indivudal photons doesn't change just the number of them

Re: Units of the Work Function

the work function tells you how much energy is needed to remove ONE electron, so the units should reflect that. I wouldn't be surprised though if the midterm asked for the answer in joules/mole or something, but you would just do the calculations as normal unitl the end when youd make the conversion...

Re: How can kinetic energy be 0

the kinetic energy of the ejected electron is the excess energy that is produced when the energy of the incoming photon is greater than the energy needed to remove the electron from its metal surface. the kinetic energy is 0 when the energy of the photon is equal to the energy needed to remove the e...

your equations are right in regards to which uses velocity and which uses frequency. it is super easy to mix them up since their symbols both look like v! try to start writing your frequency variable as the greek letter nu which is like v but slightly different (id recommend looking up a picture of ...

the intensity of a light ray is proportional to the number of photons which then confers brightness. what we care about with the photoelectric effect is the individual energy of each photon, not how many photons there are. to increase the energy of the individual photons, we increase the frequency o...

Re: Fractions

i would say it's always best to use whole numbers for stoichiometric coefficients! just remember that if you do have a fraction for a coefficient and you want to eliminate it by multiplication, make sure you multiply both sides by the same number (all coefficients will change then)!

Re: precision for molar masses

I would say that use the exact molar mass if it is given in the question. I think for exams we'll all use the same periodic tables and we should also then just use the exact molar mass given without rounding. I think a general rule of thumb is always save rounding for the end!
