### Winter 2014 Q3D

Part D asks to calculate E° of cell and the solution shows E°anode-E°cathode. I am confused....isn't it E°cathode-E°anode? Can someone please explain this to me.

### Idean's 10 Page Review

I see on a previous topic the link to the one page handout Idean gave out during his review session but, correct me if I am wrong, didn't Idean say there was a 10 page review packet he made? I can't seem to find if/where he posted that.

### Re: Delta G

Delta G is the standard Gibbs free energy of the reaction as a whole whereas the delta G double dagger refers to the standard free energy of activation

### Equilibrium constant in pre equilibrium approach

Can someone explain how you are able to use the equilibrium constant even though it's not at equilibrium?

### Balancing with OH

When balancing a redox reaction in a basic solution, can you balance the equation with the OH at the end and treat it like an acidic reaction until then?

### Re: Identifying anodes and cathodes

Look at the reaction and see what is being reduced and what is being oxidized! The cathode is being reduced and the anode is being oxidized.

### Gibbs Free Energy Definition

I understand how to calculate free energy and how it favors being negative but what in itself is free energy? Why is it "free"?

### Re: Closed System

By definition, an adiabatic system is one where there is no gain or loss of heat. For a closed system that is the only means of energy transfer because no matter can be added so therefore q must always equal zero.

### Using Bond Enthalpies to Calculate ΔH(rxn)

When looking at bonds that are broken and formed in a reaction in order to calculate the bond enthalpies, is the only way to determine which bonds are broken/formed through drawing the Lewis structures?

### Order of filling Molecular Orbitals

When filling the molecular orbitals for a molecule with a nuclear charge less than 8 (so the pi bonds are lower energy than the sigma bond in the P orbital), if you have three electrons total in the P orbital will they fill with one in each pi bond and one in the sigma bond or will the third pair wi...
