### Re: Getting two positive x values when using quadratic

If you get two positive values it is likely that one of the values was larger than the initial concentration you are given therefore you would omit that one because you cannot end up with a negative concentration.

I dont think it makes a difference it would just be easier to do kp if you are given partial pressures. But you must make sure that all of your units are the same so if you got partial pressure and molar concentrations you should convert one of them to be the same as the other and then calculate K

The work function for sodium is 150.6 kJ.mol-1 and asks you to find the kinetic energy of the ejected electron. I am not sure how to go about doing this, but ...

### Re: E(photon) greater than or less than energy required to remove electron

the wording is a little bit confusing but he is basically stating that if the energy of the photon is larger than the energy required to remove the electron, then the electron will move. If you read it slowly and emphasize the word unless it makes it more clear. He is saying that only when the energ...

### Textbook 1A.11 question

In the spectrum of atomic hydrogen, several lines are generally classified together as belonging to a series (for example, Balmer series or Lyman series, as shown in Fig. 1A.10). What is common to the lines within a series that makes grouping them together logical? Can someone explain this? I cant s...

### Re: L.35 Balancing Third Equation

Hi! So for this question you are probably having trouble balancing because there is a typo in the problem. On Dr. Lavelles website there is a link that says that for question L.35 "In the third reaction step the compound "FeBr2" needs to be "Fe3Br8"" Hope this clears th...

### Re: Module Atomic Spectra Post Assesment Question 42

To do this problem I actually used a different formula. I used v=R(1/(n1)^2 - 1/(n2)^2) where R is Rydberg's constant = 3.29 * 10^15 Hz. Using the given frequency I plugged each number into the given formula (v=1.14*10^14 Hz, and n1=4). From there I solved for n2 and ended up getting an energy leve...

### Module Atomic Spectra Post Assesment Question 42

An excited hydrogen atom emits light with a frequency of 1.14 x 1014 Hz to reach the energy level n = 4. In what principle quantum level did the electron begin? Can someone walk me through how to do this? I used the deltaE formula to get E4-Ex. I used E=hv to get the energy emitted because they gave...

A reaction vessel contains 5.77 g of white phosphorus and 5.77 g of oxygen. The first reaction to take place is the formation of phosphorus(III) oxide, P4O6: P4(s) 1 3 O2(g) S P4O6(s). If enough oxygen is present, the oxygen can react further with this oxide to produce phosphorus(V) oxide, P4O10: P4...

Hi, I am confused on how to approach this question: A 1.50-g sample of metallic tin was placed in a 26.45-g crucible and heated until all the tin had reacted with the oxygen in air to form an oxide. The crucible and product together were found to weigh 28.35 g. (a) What is the empirical formula of t...
