### Re: Q concentrations

Thank you. Here is a picture of the full questions. It is page 159 in the book "Decades of midterms and finals" from 2005-2014. Thanks!

### Delta H of combustion

Can someone please explain this to me? I understand that for methane the coefficient of CO2 is 1 and for ethanol liquid and octane it is 2, but how did they get the answer for octane? Thanks

### Q concentrations

In this question, how does Q=1/(1x10^-6) ?
Q should be= (H)^2/(H2)(Cu2+)
do the (h)^2/(H2) cancel out somehow?

### substituting intermediates in rate laws

In question 4B of the 2014 final, why does C have to be substituted for in the equation? I know that you have to substitute for E because it is an intermediate. But since C doesn't get canceled out, I thought it is not an intermediate? Thanks

### Activation energy vs. delta G

For a reaction profile with potential energy as the Y-axis, the difference between the reactants and the transition state is the activation energy. I thought that if a reaction profile has Delta G for the Y-axis, then the difference between reactants and products will be the delta G with the 2 pluse...

### reverse reactions

How do you know which half reaction to reverse? Is it true that for a galvanic cell you always make the smaller number negative, because you always want a positive E? What if the type of cell is not specified? For example, in question 8 on the 2014 midterm, the bigger number is reversed, making E ne...

### Calculating Q

Is Q always the concentration of the anode over the concentration of the cathode? or does it depend on the situation?

### Order of reactants in cell diagrams

If there is more than one reactant, does it matter what order we put them in? For example, chapter 13 question 21 part a, does it matter if we out the NO3- first or the H+ first? They are both reactants in the cathode. Also, in part C, the half reaction is Cr2O7 (2-) + 14H+ +6e- --> 2Cr(3+) +7H2O an...

### Order in cell diagram

In part c in question 13 of chapter 13, the Cl- is placed before the Cl2, but the half reaction is Cl2 +2e- --> 2Cl-
I thought that in the cell diagram it would be Cl2 before Cl- since that is the order of the reaction, why is it switched?

### 2 different elements for MO

For a molecular orbital problem with 2 different elements, how do you know which energy-level diagram to use? How do you know whether to use the diagram for Li2-N2 or the one for O2-F2?

### Br 2+

In one of the practice finals it says that Br 2+ is diamagnetic. Can someone please explain this to me? I thought it should be paramagnetic with 2 unpaired electrons.
