Phenol groups

Are we going to required to know phenol groups? I know they're important in organic chemistry but we never went over them in lecture.

General Question about Nucleophiles vs. Electrophiles

In quiz 3, they gave us several molecules (e.g. CH3+, OH-, CH3,Cl, CO2) and asked us to categorize them either as an electrophile or nucleophile. Other than the overall charge of the molecule, is there another way to tell whether a molecule is more electrophillic/nucleophillic?

Question from Quiz 2

The question gives that A + B + C --> X and the rate law would be R=k[A]^2[B][C] and it asks you to find the rate constant k for the reaction given that the excess reactants concentration of A and B is [A]_o_ [B]_o_ How do you solve for k with this given. I had to leave this one blank on the quiz be...

Midterm Question

IN the midterm, question 8, the test asks what would the effect on the potential of the cell if the size of the silver electrode were doubled?

I understand that nothing would happen, but why would there be no effect on E?

Re: Chemistry Jokes

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”.

HW 14.11 Part D

In the problem, O2 and H+ are on the anode but they are being combined to form water, why is this? Typically the two molecules would exchange electrons on separate sides of the chemical reaction.

HW 11.11

When solving the question, you should use

If represents the Gibbs Free Energy at STP, why does the solutions manual solve for at 1200K rather than 298K?

Enthalpy of Vaporization

When doing the homework problems for chapter 8 (I believe the question in the book is either 35 or 37) it asks for the Enthalpy of Vaporization. What is the formula for this. Also I noticed when doing the bomb calorimeter problems, the solutions manual uses the formula q = C sp *delta*T... why is th...

Question 8.1

Why would coffee in a thermos be considered an isolated system? In my everyday experience with thermoses, the coffee would cool if put in the fridge, and thus have a change in energy.
