Re: Question on the eclipsed bonds of Cyclopentanes

Yes, but can someone please clarify whether "2 fully eclipsed C-H bonds" mean 1 pair of eclipsed bonds or 2 pairs.

Thanks

Question on the eclipsed bonds of Cyclopentanes

Hey guys, I just had a question regarding the eclipsed bonds of cyclopentanes. Can someone please explain what the course reader means when it states "the 2 fully eclipsed C-H bonds". Does this mean that there are 2 pairs of eclipsed C-H bonds in the cyclopentane ball and stick model or is...

Hey guys, How are we supposed to draw the reaction profile from the reaction mechanism? I understand that you can determine the number of transition states/steps from the reaction mechanism, however, how can we deduce which transition state is higher in energy or whether the delta G is negative or p...

Nernst Equation Constant [ENDORSED]

Hello,
How are we supposed to know when to use 0.025693 V vs. 0.0592 V in the Nernst equation? I am seeing problems that use either constant and I am unable to find the reasoning behind that. Can someone please advise on this. Thanks in advance.

Hey guys, I've attached question 4 from the Chem 14B 2007 midterm. If you open it up, I've circled the number, 2.42, in orange. 2.42 is supposed to be the specific heat of ethanol in regards to this problem. However, I would like to know if we are expected to know this specific heat or if we'll be g...

I'm sorry if this question sounds dumb but I am a little confused on how we could solve the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation for the concentration of a conjugate acid given the pH, pka, and the concentration of the base? Thanks

For # 2 on the quiz 3 prep 3 in the workbook, why is Br written before the NH3 in the solutions?? Alphabetically, wouldn't ammine come before bromo because well 'a' comes before 'b'??
