### Re: 2013 5C

NH has a fully negative charge and OH is only partially negative. It's electronegative. NH therefore is more nucleophilic. It's SN2 because it's bimolecular. Two reactants are involved in the reaction. It's substitution because it's not "added" on to a double bond.

### Re: Anti Conformation

If the two are 180 degrees apart, then it would be anti conformation.

### quiz 3 prep 1 question 3

The answer key is 3, 4 dimethyl 2 pentene, but can we also put 3, 4 dimethylpent-2-ene?

### Re: Winter Quiz 2, Preparation 2 (w/answers) #11

You can use the equation Ink2/k1 = Ea/R (1/T1 - 1/T2) because they gave you k1, k2 and t1, t2, so all you need to do is just substitute the values and find Ea. Then you substitute T2 with 770K to find k2 while keeping k1 and t1 the same.

Hope that helps.

### Re: state function

Not all. Temperature is a state function but it's intensive.

### Re: Standard Reduction Potential

You use hydrogen as a reference electrode under standard conditions to measure the ability/tendency for the species to be reduced.

### Microstate of SO2F2

How do you determine the number of microstate of SO2F2? Why is it 6 and not 4?

For reversible processes, the pressure of internal and external is (close to) equal.
