Re: Electrophile/Nucleophile CO2

It is an electrophile. This is because the two Oxygen atoms are pulling electrons from the central carbon atom. This causes the carbon atom to have a partial positive charge which is the characteristic of an electrophile.

Carbonyl Functional Group

Is carbonyl the general name for the aldehyde and ketone functional groups or are aldehydes and ketones separate functional groups?

Re: Things in Parenthesis

The parentheses are used in the condensed formula to identify repeating units. In order to figure out which unit goes with which one needs to number the carbons in he carbon chain. For example on the first compound given, (CH3)2 is attached to the first C that is not in parenthesis. The units in par...

Re: Entropy

Entropy is spontaneity. So when two atoms are bonded, they are less free. Hence, there is less spontaneity and entropy decreases.

Re: Pre equilibrium Approach

The steady state method can only be used if the first step of a reaction is much slower than the second step, whereas the pre-equilibrium approximation requires the first step to be faster.

Re: Balancing Redox Reactions

When balancing a redox-reaction you use H2O to balance the oxygens. For example: EQUATION: Br- + MnO4- ---> Br2 + Mn2+ STEP 1 (evaluate the charges): Br-=(-1)|[Mn=(+7),O=(-2)]||Br2=(0)|Mn2+=(+2) STEP 2 (separate the half reactions/balance electrons): 2Br- - 2e- ---> Br2 MnO4- + 5e- ---> Mn2+ STEP 3 ...

Re: Heat curve problem 1 in page 10 of workbook

You're thinking about trends you've seen. Maybe that's the case usually, maybe not, but you cannot generalize. Look at the actual heating curve given in the question. Heat capacity is the energy required to raise the temperature of any substance by 1 degree C, or whatever the units of temperature yo...

Re: Work of expansion sign

If a gas is expanding, you can imagine the gas in a chamber pushing on the piston that is lid to the chamber. Since the gas is pushing the lid up, it is using energy. When the gas uses energy it is also losing total energy so the work done by the gas is negative.

Re: State and Path functions

Typically, when the variable (i.e. "T" for temperature or "P" for pressure) are capital letters they're state functions. If the variable is a lower case (i.e. "q" for heat or "w" for work) it is a path function.

Re: Electron Affinity Relationship of C and N.

Electron affinity of group 6 elements tends to be less than that of group 7 elements because of the trend in the periodic table for election affinity is to increase going across a period and increase going up a group. However in groups 4 and 5 electron affinity decreases. The electron affinity of gr...

Re: Atomic Spectra

The absorption and emission spectra for Hydrogen are different because hydrogen atoms emit or absorb radiation only on certain frequencies. Since the hydrogen emission spectrum only reveals 3 lines in the visible light section, one can infer that the hydrogen atom can only emit radiation at those sp...
