Re: Common names (non IUPAC names)

The prefix "iso" is used when all carbons except one form a continuous chain. The prefix "sec" is used when the functional group is bonded to a secondary carbon. The prefix "tert" is used when the functional group is bonded to a tertiary carbon. The prefix "neo&quo...

Re: Units For K

The units for k would still be calculated from the overall rate order. In this example "rate=k[X]^1/4[Y]^1[Z]^1" the overall rate order would be 2 1/4 or 9/4 and so the units of k would be L^5/4 mol^5/4 s^-1, in order for the rate's units to be in mol L^-1 s^-1.

Re: Half Reactions

They are Standard Reduction Potentials, but to switch from Standard Reduction Potentials to Standard Oxidation Potentials simply multiply by -1.

Re: Using -OH to Balance

You use -OH in acidic solutions so that the -OH can act as a proton acceptor and accept the H+ given by the acid, forming H2O as a product.

Re: Which Heat capacity equation to use for gases

For constant volume the heat capacity for a monatomic gas is 3/2 R, for a gas made up of linear molecules it is 5/2 R, and for a gas made up of nonlinear molecules it is 3R. For constant pressure the heat capacity for a monatomic gas is 5/2 R, for a gas made up of linear molecules it is 7/2 R, and f...
