Re: Axial v Equatorial bonds

For that problem, you would identitfy which ones are axial up and then alternate going up and down and apply the same method for equitorial up and down. As long as the largest subsituent is on the equatorial, I believe you are okay.

Galvanic Cell

In the practice final from 2012, question 3 part c, has the molarity written in the cell diagram next to the anode and cathode. Is this information a neccessary element to recieve full credit?

Cis and Trans

For the homework question, 1.29, can someone clearify what the 2 functional groups are in the diagram for (Z)-3-methyl-3-heptene and also why is there only one subsituent?

Can someone else walk through the steps on how to draw the diagram?

Organic Chemistry is difficult. I mean those who study it have alkynes of trouble.

Acid what you did there!!!

What if the video is too large to post here? Will attaching a YouTube link be sufficient?

Q 14.51

Can someone explain the idea behind this problem. I do not understand how "the ratio is less than 1 and E>0, so the cell can do work" idea.

Also, if someone can clearify how represents max work, that would be great!

Homework Problem 8.37

I do not understand why in this problem the equation for the enthalpy of vaporization is not used, but instead is used? should it not be the intial equation we learned that is ?

Homework Problem 33

Why is that for part a for this problem since it's a linear molecular, the contribution from molecular motions will be 5/2 R. How is this answer derived?

Also, why is that whether or not the molecule is diatomic or not, the contribution from the molecular will be 5/2 R for part d?

Heat Capacity

I understand that heat capacity is an extensive property. Since extensive properties are not that valuable to science because it does not provide too much information, why is it a neccessary label? In general, if intensive properties are preferred because they are more informative, what is the need ...
