Re: Study Tips for Final Exam

Every Midterm we have had I have made a list of all the topics and then steps on how to do them/what they are as a compressed study guide. I think this will definitely help me study for the final because it is important to stay organized in order to not feel overwhelmed with all the material.

Re: Spin State

Knowing the spin state differentiates the atom from another atom. No two atoms are allowed to have the same configuration which is why this is important.

I believe for the midterm, we won't have to worry about sig figs as much because all the answers will be in multiple choice. That being said, I think it is still important to use sig figs throughout the problem.
