Homework problem 1.21

I don't understand why the answer is 5-methyl-cyclopenta-1,3-diene. Should it be 3-methyl-cyclopenta-1,4-diene since it has the smallest configuration?

Re: Boltzmann Constant

It's 4^64 because the question states 64 molecules and W (degeneracy)= # of states ^(molecules).
If this was in moles, then you multiply it by Avogadro's constant which is 6.02214x10^23

Chapter 8 #87

I'm really confused about calculating phase changes. On number 87, it's asking for how much heat is required to convert a block of ice into water vapor. In the solutions manual, it lists the steps of each different changes but I'm confused where they're getting the numbers such as temperature and wh...

Re: Chemistry Jokes

Q: When one physicist asks another, "What's new?" what's the typical response?
A:C over lambda.

Two chemists go into a bar. The first one says "I think I'll have an H2O." The second one says "I think I'll have an H2O too" — and he died.

Re: Different types of systems

An example of a closed system would be some type of liquid in a closed container like a jar where the matter is not released, but energy is exchanged with its surroundings. An example of an isolated system is coffee in a closed, insulated container where the matter and energy are neither exchanged w...
