Will the formula sheet given to us in the final look exactly like the one we already have? If not how will it be different?

### Intermediates

In the course reader on page 87-88 it goes over electrophilic addition reaction, my question is how to do you identify how many and what are the intermediates?

For 2 N2O5->2 N2+O2 the rate law is k[N2O]. I thought you were suppose to square the rate law like 2HI->H2+I2 k[HI]2. Can someone explain when not to square it?

In a sports relay race, a chemical kinetics specialist runs slowly, and his group loses the race.

When the chemical kinetics specialist is asked why he ran slowly, his reply was “I always wanted to be the significant rate determining step”.

### calculate delta H in a RXN

When do you use the formula the sum of the product - the sum of the reaction? Because there is another formula/method that is the same just backwards (the sum of the reaction- the sum of the product).

What does it mean "write the number of electrons that can have the following quantum numbers if the orbitals of that sub shell are filled"?
This is part of the question when given ex n=3 and l=2 I know why it would be 3d but why would the answer to my question^ be 10?

Yes, sorry my question was somewhat unclear! The question was in regard to that question. So for the most part I was correct then? Does it matter how you word it?

### unpaired electron occupies what type of Molecule orbital

So in NO there is one unpaired electron in the first row of anti-bonding. I'm not sure what the question is looking for? Is it just asking for "anti-bonding pi px"? or?
