why isn't water included in the rate law?

### Re: Chair and Boat Bond Angles

How do we figure out the c-c-c angles? Are we just expected to memorize them?

### Re: Alphabetical ordering question

Why is is that just common names you count all carbons and not just the longest chain? But when you do IUPAC with common names, you only use the chain?

### Re: Rate law

If you're given a rate of an unbalanced equation, do you have to change the rate to tend to the balanced equation before solving for anything (ex: solving for time). Would you multiply the rate by the coefficient of moles , or perhaps multiply the rate constant by the coefficient of moles or does it...

### Re: Pseudo rate laws

So is the pseudo rate law of [A] with excess [B] and [C] …. k'[A]/[B][C]? Im a little confused on how this works.

### Re: K

lower case k, rate constant, has different units. Make sure you know the difference in units between 1st, 2nd and zero order.

### Re: Cell Diagrams

How does a salt bridge work? I know it makes the cathode able to intake more negative charges, but how?

### Re: Isothermal and reversible

So for an isothermal reaction you would still use U=q+w because q still exists? But doesn't q=nCdeltaT, and isn't deltaT 0 in isothermal, so wouldn't it be U=w?
