Conformation angle

Does the angle matter when talking about full eclipse and eclipse?

How do you categorize Electrophiles?

If an electrophile has more than one element how do you determine if it is an electrophile or nucleophile?

Naming Help

When you have a cycloalkane and you have more than one substituent, how do you number when the all the corners of the molecule have a substituent. Is it alphabetical order?

Finding K

When trying to find K when do you use the average one with (change)/(change in time) vs. the manipulation of the integrated rate law?

Drawing a Cell Diagram

When you are drawing a cell diagram when do you include a salt bridge and when do you include Pt(s) on the left and on the right side of the diagram?

What exactly is free energy?

So I know how to calculate Gibbs Free Energy but what is it conceptually? I understand that if you have a negative value of Gibbs it is spontaneous and vice versa but what does the negative mean exactly in terms of energy? Is it negative free energy that promotes the reaction to go forward? I just h...

Calculating Entropy of Surroundings

I was trying to to do Self-Test 9.15A in the book which says "Calculate the entropy change of the surroundings when 1.00 mol H2O(l) vaporizes at 90 degrees C and 1 bar." The question continues but I couldn't get over this first part. How does water vaporize at 90 degrees C if the boiling p...

Need some clarification on finding enthalpy for a reaction.

When trying to find the enthalpy for a reaction, you use the standard enthalpies of formation in order to use the sum of the standard enthalpies of the products minus the reactants, correct? In addition to that, why do we subtract the reactants from the products and not the other way around?

Question about Reversible Process

So I just need something clarified. When a process is a irreversible it is irreversible because of their is a finite amount of pressure from the system that differs from the external pressure. When calculating the reversible process is the "infinitely small change" the ln portion of the eq...
