Re: Advice for someone who didn't take 14A with professor Lavelle

If you're someone who doesn't tend to well in exams, Lavelle's classes still give you an opportunity to get a good grade with all the points you get from the chemistry community and homework points so make sure you do those!

Re: Covalent Bond Length

For covalent, the difference in electro negativity will determine if the bond is either polar or non polar. And the increasing number of bonds decreases the bond length. Higher bond order (number of bonds) indicated more attraction between electrons and the atoms will be held closer together

With ionic bonds, the distance and charge affect the strength of the bond. For example, if there are more electrons being transferred then the bond would be stronger. With covalent bonds, the length of the bond and electronegativity affect the strength of the bond. Moreover, triple bonds > double bo...

Re: Electron Affinity

Chlorine has a higher electron affinity.
As an exception to the rule, Cl has higher EA as compared to F. Fluorine has very small atomic size and this makes the fluoride anion unstable due to very high charge/mass ratio. F has no d orbitals so it has small atomic size. F has EA less than that of Cl.

I'm not sure if that was clear but ill show you the working I did so you get a better idea...

3.59x10^-19=(6.626x10^-34)*(3.0x10+08)/lambda

therefore, lambda = 5.54x10^-7

then to convert it you'd do:

Hi! So when it says the typical work function of the metal is 3.59x10^-19 it's basically saying that's how much energy needs to hit the metal to eject an electron. So you can use the E=h*c/lambda equation giving E the value of 3.59x10^-19 to calculate the wavelength. Once you do that all you have to...
