### Re: Common naming and IUPAC naming

Unless the question directly specifies, you can use whichever.

### Re: Determine which reaction is faster

I remember one of the substitutes saying that we should look at the number of bonds breaking to determine which TS will have the higher energy barrier, but what if there are the same amount of bonds breaking in both of them?

### Multi-Reactant Concentration Changes

In lecture last week it was said to plot [B] vs time, ln[B] vs time, and then 1/[B] vs time until you get a linear slope in order to determine the order of B. What if you get a straight line for more than one of these?

### Deriving Formula on Midterm

On the midterm, can we jump straight to using w=-nRT(ln[V2/V1]) or do we have to briefly show the steps of its derivation from the formulas on the reference table?

### Question 8.33

The question states to predict the contribution of heat capacity made by molecular motions for each of the following atoms and molecules:
(a) HCN
(b) C2H6
(c) Ar
(d) HBr

How do we predict this? What is the difference between them?

### Re: Delta H Nought vs Delta H

Both of these values would be expressed in kj/mol

### Steam Burns vs. Water Burns

I'm still confused about why steam burns are worse than water burns. Can someone explain this to me again? I am very interested in this application of thermochemistry.

### Enthalpy Calculation References

If we are ever asked to calculate the change in enthalpy during a reaction, how do we know what enthalpy is required to break/ form a bond? Will there be a list or table of them?
