Priority of Subsituents

If an element other than C or H is a substituent, does that element have priority?

Substituent -yl ending

Does the -yl ending for a substituent only apply to hydrocarbons?

Re: Problem 8.27

The equation is w=-nRTln(V2/V1).
Check out page 266 in the textbook.

Re: 2 on Fall 2008 Final

It is derived from Lambda=h/p.
p is mass x velocity, so you get Lambda=h/(mass x velocity). From here it's using algebra to get velocity by itself, and you end up with v=h/(mass x lambda).

Re: adding Fe metal name

I don't know if this will help much, but with a negative coordination sphere you have to use the -ate ending as with k4[Fe[CN06] pottasiumhexacyanoferrate(II)

Re: MOT

The Lewis structure faces limitations when determining if a substance is diamagnetic or paramagnetic, because it does not show if there are lone electrons, as with O2.The textbook has a good section, "4.8 The Limitations of Lewis's Theory" where they discuss this, and the limitations that ...

Value of Planck's Constant

Why are there two values for Planck's Constant? In the worked examples following the photoelectric effect the value for h is 6.626x10^-34 j.s., but for Heisenberg's indeterminacy equation h is 6.63x10^-34 j.s.? Are the two h's different?
