### Hwk 13.29

1.436g of NaOH is dissolved in 300.mL solution, 25.00mL of this solution is titrated to the stoichiometric point with 34.20mL of 0.0695 M HCl. What is the percentage purity of the original sample? 1. I converted g of NaOH to moles of NaOH. 2. I then converted 0.0695M HCl to moles of HCl. 3. I then d...

### Re: Henderson-Hasselbalch equation

The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation is used to calculate the pH of solution containing an acid and its conjugate base as a salt OR to calculate the pOH of a base and its conjugate acid as a salt.

pH= pKa + log(A-/HA)

pOH= pKb + log(BH+/BH)

### Re: 2015 Midterm Question #3

In order to use the kinetic equation you would need 2 of the 3 things: the energy of the photons being emitted onto the metallic surface, the threshold energy of the metallic surface, or the kinetic energy of the photons emitted(1/2mv^2). According to the De Broglie equation, Wave Length= h/p and p=...

### Re: Fall 2015 Midterm Question 4

Hi Katelyn! The electron arrangement assumes the shape trigonal bipyramidal, however, when we take into account the 3 lone pairs, the molecular shape is in fact linear. To see this more clearly, imagine a linear molecule(2 atoms on each end) and arrange the 3 lone pairs around the central atom. I wi...

### Re: Lone pairs in polarity

Yes, lone pairs affect the polarity of a molecule. If there is an individual lone pair, there won't be another pair of electrons to cancel out the dipole moment, therefore the molecule will be polar. If there are two lone pairs, it is possible for it to not affect the polarity of the molecule if the...

Actually, after researching it appears that a molecule with AX2E3 is a linear molecule. Take I3- for example.

### Lone Pairs on Linear Molecule

Can a molecule have lone pairs and still be linear? Wouldn't AX2E1 or AX2E2 be Bent Shape? Thanks for the help.

Hi. The Lewis Structure for sulfite has 3 resonance structures in which the Sulfur has a formal charge of 0 and two of the oxygens have a formal charge of -1. Why couldn't there be a 3 double bonds instead? Wouldn't this contribute to Sulfur having a formal charge of -2 and the oxygens having a form...

### Re: S, P, D, and F Orbitals[ENDORSED]

An orbital is a mathematical representation of where an electron is likely to be found. Each orbital can hold up to two electrons with opposite spins. These orbitals are found in subshells(s,p,d,f) and the subshells are found in different energy levels(n).

### Re: Aufbau's Principle[ENDORSED]

This is true for nearly all atoms with two exceptions: chromium and copper. I'd urge you to refer to the final paragraph of page 46 in the textbook as it would give a fairly thorough response as to why the exceptions exist. Hope this helped!

### Re: Aufbau's Principle[ENDORSED]

Once they contain electrons, the 3d orbitals have lower energy than the 4s orbitals. Therefore, the 3d orbital must come before the 4s orbital.

What is the difference between the "energy" and "intensity" of a wave? Or are they referring to the same point in mind?
