Re: Final Question

I think you should know the angles, but I wouldn't worry about the exact energies of gauche, eclipsed etc. You probably should just know which is higher energy in relation to the others.

Re: Naming

Also keep in mind that the order of priority for assigning the number to a carbon goes functional group, number of bonds, and then substituents.

Re: C-H Bond +4 kJ/mol

The -12 kJ is the given value. Since we know that there are three eclipsed bonds, we divide by three to get the 4kJ value. The 4kJ value indicates the extra energy it takes to form this conformation.

Re: Naming with prefix di-

Yes that is why. Convention says that you need to say 2,2 one for each methyl. If you don't it will be confusing and people will assume that you simply forgot to mention where one of the methyls is located.

Re: Definition of K prime

yes. The rate of forward and reverse reaction (k and k prime) are only equal at equilibrium.

Re: Balancing Reactions

If you have a method that works it should be fine either way. Most people balance the oxygen first as it is easier and the way that we learned to do it.

Re: Acidic vs. Basic Solutions

There is no difference between using a acid or base solution, but you may have to flip a half reaction.

Re: Reversible and Isothermal

q=-w because u=0 in this scenario. U is 0 because the ideal gas is isothermal

Re: Heat of Combustion

If you do what you said, the answer will be the same, so your method probably works. The problem was a state function, so you could do the method you chose.

Re: Work Formulas

Different types of work imply that energy can take various forms. Use the formula that contains the variables given in the problem or the formula that cancels out the units to give you energy.
