Re: Chem 14B Final

I'd say redo the outlines until you've mastered every problem. Try to go to as many UA sessions as possible especially during the week before finals because they generally have topic specific sessions which are nice for reviewing.

Re: Post All Chemistry Jokes Here

Two chemists go into a restaurant.
The first one says "I think I'll have an H2O."
The second one says "I think I'll have an H2O too" -- and he died.

Re: n1 and n2

N1 is basically the final energy level and N2 is the initial energy level. During a UA session, they even suggested writing nf and ni instead so that its less confusing. Hope this helped!

Re: Experiments/conceptuals we need to know

I would understand the general premise of each one and what they proved. The module post assessment questions generally cover that.

Re: Textbook Practice Problem Answers

I know CCLE is down right now so if you logged into Sapling via that maybe it didn't load completely or something. I downloaded the answer key pdf beforehand so if you need it I can possible email it to you.

Re: using the molar ratio to find LR?

It depends on what the question is asking! Sometimes a question will ask what is the limiting reactant and then a follow up of how many moles or the mass of product produced. Hope this helps!

Helium walks into a bar,
The bar tender says "We don't serve noble gasses in here."
Helium doesn't react.

Re: Textbook vs Lectures vs Other Methods

I am a current student and I have found all of Dr. Lavelle's resources on his website are helpful. But since lectures are prerecorded, I really find the UA workshops the most helpful once I've completed the audio visual topics and the lectures. The UA sessions also include unique workshops so you ca...

Re: Where can I buy a webcam for a reasonable price?

You can find plenty on amazon for cheap but be sure to look carefully through the reviews especially the lower ones. I also think there are a lot with 5-10% coupons on amazon.

Re: iPad vs Paper notes

Hi! I got an iPad for college and I had a lot of trouble deciding if I wanted to invest that much money. I ended up buying one and an apple pencil and really love using both. I haven't had too much trouble for headaches and eye strain but I recommend blue light glasses. I think one of the best price...

Re: Study Tips

I would recommend doing the audio visual topics and textbook questions if haven't already. I also think the UA workshop sessions are extremely helpful and there's a new worksheet for each UA so you can go to a bunch of sessions each week.

Re: Calculating number of moles of an element

You're completely right! We use 100g for simplicity since we are usually given the mass percent composition and that way it an easy conversion from percent to grams of the element.
