Distinction between Bronsted and Lewis

Why are there two different ways to classify acids and bases (Bronsted and Lewis)? For instance, what is the distinction between a Bronsted base and a lewis acid?

Coordination number?

Just to clarify, the course readers says that the coordination number is = to the number of bonds. By this does it mean that the coordination number is equal to the number of elements connected to the transition metal or the actual number of bonds (e.g. there's one double bond so the coordination nu...

I believe T shaped actually is AX3E2 and trigonal pyramidal is AX3E

Re: Covalent and Ionic Character

Whether a bond is ionic or covalent is dependent upon the electronegativities of the two atoms connected through the bond. If the difference in electronegativity is greater than 2 than the bond is considered ionic. If the difference is less than 1.5, then the bond is considered covalent. If the numb...

wave function squared for s orbital is nonzero at nucleus

Hi, I was reading 2.5 in the textbook to clarify some confusion I had and then I came upon this phrase: "Wave function squared for the s-orbital is nonzero at the nucleus." This can be bound on page 43 at the beginning of the last paragraph. I want to make sure I'm interpreting this correc...

Confusion between orbitals and subshells etc

Can someone please clarify the differences between shells, subshells, and orbitals...
I looked it up in the textbook but I'm still a little confused

Re: Orbitals [ENDORSED]

Hey guys I was reviewing Lavelle's lecture from Friday yesterday and realized I was wondering why there are multiple possibilities for the magnetic quantum number and spin magnetic quantum number.

A classic joke

So two chemists walk into a bAR
the first goes up to order and says "I'll have some H2O, I need to drive home"
the second says, "I'll have some H2O, too"
they finish their drinks and the second chemist dies
