Re: Winter 2014 Final Question 1B

I just redid this problem and the answer for q is the answer that you get when you use 10 degrees C as the change in temperature so the change in temperature in the answers should be 10 degrees C instead of 20 degrees C.

Re: Are the coordination numbers just inside of brackets? [ENDORSED]

I believe that the coordination number on that one is 6 because there are three bonds from the (CN)3, two bonds from the (en), and one bond from the (NH3) for a total of 6. So 6 ligand bonds give a coordination number of 6.

Re: Trends in periodic table

I believe that the trend does not apply to noble gases because noble gases already have a full octet. Noble gases do not want another electron because that would mean that they would have to make another shell since their octet is already filled.
