Re: Balancing Redox Reactions

Hey, don't fear! :) This is the method I was taught (I'll use an example, question 14.3b): MnO 4 - + H 2 SO 3 ---> Mn 2+ + HSO 4 - In MnO 4 - (oxidizing agent) Mn = +7 O = -2 In H 2 SO 3 (reducing agent) H = +1 S = +4 O = -2 In Mn 2+ Mn = 2+ In HSO 4 - H = +1 S = +6 O = -2 When balancing half equati...

Re: Units

Delta H is used to express a change in energy, normally done using either J or kJ.

However, there may be specific problems that ask you of the delta H of one mole of a substance reacting where, in that case, the delta H would be equal to the delta H per mole.

Re: Determining bond angles

If two of the F atoms are replaced with Cl atoms, you would get the same effect but more amplified. The difference isn't very significant though. Electron lone pairs are what cause significant differences in bond angles. What's most important to note in these situations is that the molecule is no lo...

Electron Spins

So I recently came across a situation I didn't understand. Lets say in a 2p sub-shell we have three electrons. Each electron fills 1 of the 3 orbitals, resulting in 3 half filled orbitals. (Hund's Rule) What I need clarification on is why do all 3 of the electrons need to be spinning in the same dir...

Re: Delta x

x refers to the position of the entity delta x is the uncertainty or indeterminacy of the position of that entity in an environment. (p and delta p refer to momentum.) The second example in the workbook regarding Heisenberg's indeterminacy equation refers to an electron orbiting an atom. We know, th...
