### Re: WHat is the unit of k

If you are referring to the rate constant, k, the units can be M^(-1)*, s^(-1), or L/(mol*s)

### Re: Bruincast for February 13, 2017[ENDORSED]

The lecture that day ended a few minutes early for lecture 1, so the bruin cast is just under 45 minutes. Im not sure if you mean the last few of the 45 don't work or if you're confused why its only 45, but lecture ends with him announcing that class on Wednesday is canceled if that clarifies anythi...

### Re: using heat capacities to find q

when the moles is equal to 1, it won't affect the equation at all so the moles doesn't matter.

### Re: Entropy and Degeneracy[ENDORSED]

Entropy is the probability that a system will be in a particular state, and degeneracy is the number of ways of achieving a given energy state. The Boltzmann equation describes the relationship:
S=Kb lnW

S=entropy
W=degeneracy
Kb= boltzmann constant
