After we find the Nucleophile and Electrophile in the initial steps, there are new nucleophiles and electrophiles produced. Do we continue solving or is that all we will be doing?

Re: Determining Residual Entropy in Crystal Form

I understand everything after we get the number 6, but I am very confused as to where the number 6 is coming from and how SO2F2 turned to MX2Y4

In Professor Lavelle's Course Reader, it has the term LEO for "Loss of Electrons is Oxidation". I'm not sure if this will be of help to anyone, but I have also learned the term OIL RIG, which I prefer and when talking about electrons means "Oxidation is Loss, Reduction is Gain". ...

Integral equation

I remember in lecture Dr. Lavelle was going through and explaining the equation with the integral, but I wasn't sure if while he was explaining he was just proving the equation or if he was going through and solving by actually taking the integral. Do we have to take the integral of problems when we...

Re: Drawing VSEPR

I would study it anyways because if you can draw it then knowing the name of the shape is that much easier or visa versa

Black Body Radiation

I saw in an earlier post that Black Body Radiation would not be on the test for this class, however does anyone know if it is a topic in future chemistry classes? Does it keep building on to the topic?
