Re: Phase of water as a product in combustion reaction?

I'm pretty sure it always appears in liquid form.

Re: IUPAC and Common Name

Professor Lavelle mentioned that unless it specifically asks for the common name you are free to use the IUPAC name. I think it might depend on the strictness of the grader whether they'll take both.

Re: unstable

It has to do with electron field interactions (like repulsion and such) and the proximity of the atoms. Double bonds also 'locked-in' which cause more strain among atoms.

Re: Naming Given Structural Formula

Try naming substituents first, after you have drawn it out, and then looking at the numbering. I find this the easiest.

Re: Electrode in Galvanic Cell

The galvanic cell will require an inert metal if the substances given are not good conductors of electricity. It could be safe to assume that if a metal isn't present you will need an electrode. My TA said that Platinum is the safest element to go with if an electrode is needed and it will be placed...

Entropy in regards to Temperature

Since entropy is defined as the likelyhood of the system to be in a particular state I am confused as to how temperature affects the system itself. I know from the equation given since the heat of the system is divided by the temperature a higher temperature would decrease entropy. However, if for e...
