### chapter 15 #109

for question 109 I am confused as to why exactly they used k', we are given two different temperatures and I used the equation ln k2/k1=Ea/R (1/T1-1/T2), I am wondering why they used k' for k2 in the equation? is it because the temperature is lower for the second temperature given (the first reactio...

### Re: 14.15a[ENDORSED]

First, identify which component is oxidized and which is reduced by assigning oxidation numbers. Then, look up the relevant half-reactions in Appendix 2B that match the half-reactions of oxidation and reduction you just identified. If the cell is to be galvanic (AKA voltaic, spontaneous) then E ° c...

### Re: 14.11

Yes, but the catch with this problem is that the battery does not have a positive voltage, as the Eº of the anode is greater than that of the cathode. Pt(s) | O 2 (g) | H + (aq) || OH - (aq) | O 2 (g) | Pt(s) Overall reaction: 4H 2 O(l) → 4H + (aq) + 4OH - (aq) Anode: O 2 (g) + 4H + (aq) → 2H 2 O(l...

### Re: Lecture Slides

while the lectures are not online the search section on chemistry community has been very helpful. Searching a topic can bring up posts from years before and allows people to view old powerpoint's that were made, pdf files (such as practice review questions), and lecture questions that people in the...

I believe yes we do use that r value (8.314J/K*MOL) and the atm should just cancel each other out when you divide (p2/p1). so you are left with JK-1 in answer.
