Re: Question 15.65 Part B

I believe that the answer is endothermic as in the equation a bond is being made which requires heat whereas if a bond was being broken, the equation would have been exothermic.

Cell Diagrams

I am confused on the order of the compounds in the Cell Diagram. I understand that the anode is on the left and the cathode is on the right, and I thought that the solid compounds normally go on the outside but I have seen solutions that say otherwise...can someone explain? Thanks. Also adding Plati...

Using the equation: W(max)=ΔG=-nFE, n represents the total number of moles transferred.

I have heard that fundamental battery we know today is inefficient because of its size, and I agree. Take a laptop battery for example, it is essentially a brick. Obviously we have just been introduced to Electrochemistry and now understand how a rechargeable battery works. Does anyone know or heard...

Re: Changing L•atm to J [ENDORSED]

The standard conversion for L•atm to J is 11 liter atmosphere is equal to 101.325 joule. In terms of the quizzes, I believe that mostly everything will be in joules. This conversion is also on the equation sheet that you will be given for quizzes and exams (see laminated chart that came with the cou...

Re: Drawing Molecular Orbital Diagrams

I think the question you were curious about deals with the orbitals being slightly lower for one element than the other on a molecular orbital diagram. The electrons will be placed lower on if the element has a lower atomic number. For example, on Quiz #3, the Carbon orbitals should have been placed...

Re: Why can't hydrogen ions exist by themselves?

Hydrogen atoms can actually exist by themselves, however they are very unstable especially in the presence of water molecules as they are attracted to the oxygen atoms to form H3O+.

Re: Effect of change in temperature

I believe that the equilibria would shift to the right as the reaction is endothermic, therefore requiring heat in the reaction to produce the products.

Yes it would be a good idea to know the shapes of the bonds and there names. In terms of the calculating the bond angle, the degree of the angle often has to do with how many molecules are present but because the degree angle is not the same every shape, it is best to memorize the bond angle degree ...

Re: Expanded Octets

The reason the Octet rule can be 'expanded' for certain elements is through utilizing the d-orbitals that are found in the third principal energy level of the element.

Re: Does 10 inches of snow equal 1 inch of rain?

Sometimes. The ratio of snow to rain depends largely on the temperature outside. As temperatures are cooler (20 degrees F), the ratio of snow to rain tends to be more towards 1:20 (inches) and as temperatures are warmer (35-40 degrees F), the ratio of snow to rain tends to be more towards 1:5 (inche...
