Re: cis/trans

if there are two double bonds you just check the cis and trans of each. You would put them next to each other like (2E)(5Z) im not sure if they would be in one parentheses like (2E,5Z). To check whether they are cis or trans you got to look at the hydrogens around the carbon and other carbons/subsit...

Exergonic and Endergonic

Hey, I'm a little bit confused with the terms exergonic and endergonic reactions. Are they just terms that refer to exothermic and endothermic reactions or do they describe something different?

Re: Half lifes of reactions

Half-life is a form of convenience, it allows us to understand how much time it takes for a reactant to decrease to half its original size.The half life relates to the pathway that kinetics describes. The half life tells you something about the rate of the entire reaction and from the formula (speci...

Q7B 2nd midterm

On second midterm, Q7B, the equation used involved 0.02569V instead of 0.05916V. Im a little confused on why they used this number??

Electrochem basics

when interpreting a redox reaction how do you distinct between a cathode and anode? and the exchange of electrons. Could someone explain like in simple terms what happens on each side of the reaction? I'm getting so confused by what becomes negative and becomes positive. I just need a clear explanat...
