Re: Post All Chemistry Jokes Here

"Hi! Nice to meet you! What's your name?"
"I'm dead."
"Am I dead, too??"
"No! My name is DiEthyl Azo Dicarboxylate! DEAD for short."

Re: rate of a reaction

9. A scientist conducts an experiment to determine the rate of the following reaction: N2(g) + O2(g) → 2NO(g) If the initial concentration of N2 was 0.500 M and the concentration of N2 was 0.450 M after 0.100 s, what is the rate of the reaction? a. 0.500 M/s d. 10.0 M/s b. 1.00 M/s e. 0.250 M/s c. ...

Re: Enthalpy Question 8.31

Calculate the heat released by 5.025 g of Kr(g) at 0.400 atm as it cools from 97.6°C to 25.0°C at (a) Constant pressure and (b) constant volume. Assume that krypton behaves as an ideal gas. We are given that P=0.400 atm and ΔT=72.6°C For part a, I know that heat(q) at constant pressure is equal to ...

Re: Anodes and Cathodes, and Standard Reduction Potential

In class we have been writing anode on the left hand side and cathode on the right hand side of the cell diagram. Is there a particular reason for this? Also, on page 47, I know it states that standard reduction potential is an intensive property, so that would mean the value cannot be multiplied o...

Re: HW #9.85

Question 9.85 in the textbook says "Potassium nitrate dissolves readily in water, and its enthalpy of solution is +34.9 kJ* mol^{-1} ." Part C of the question then asks, "Is the entropy change of the system primarily a result of changes in the positional disorder or thermal disorder?...

Re: Enthalpy of H+ protons

Why is the enthalpy of H+ protons 0? Could it be that whenever H + protons react with matter, they attach to pre-existing bonds? If so, then there shouldn't be any bonds breaking or forming, resulting in no change in energy (an enthalpy of 0). My reasoning for this is based on the fact that energy ...

Re: Standard Enthalpy of Formation

Why is it that diatomic molecules like oxygen gas and nitrogen gas have a standard enthalpy of formation of 0? Recall that standard enthalpy of formation is the heat required to make one mole of something from its components in their most stable state (paraphrased from course reader page 17). Oxyge...
