Heat Capacity of Ethene

In the 2011 final practice exam, number 1-C it asks which has a higher heat capacity, Ethane or Ethene. Why is is that Ethane has a higher heat capacity when Ethene has a double bond?

Re: Winter 2012 Q7A&B

You can have a negative cell potential, it is just preferred to have a positive. With a negative you would need an external voltage.

Re: Midterm 2013 #7

Because the reaction is already reversed in the "given," it is unnecessary to use the equation E = Cathode - Anode. You can instead just add the two equations together to get Ecell.

Enthalpy Hmwk 8.39

How much heat is needed to convert 80.0 g of ice at 0.0 C into liquid water at 20.0 C.
Finding the second part of the answer (energy needed to heat the temperature of the water after melting), why do you multiply the heat capacity of water by the grams of water and not by g/mol?
