Chapter 12 Question 9

In the solutions manual for this problem, it describes how in parts (a) (B) and (d) all have a proton transferred from NH4+ to a base. For example, in part (a) it states the NH4+ acid transfers a proton to H20, the base, but both are reactants. I thought acids are supposed to transfer protons ot pro...

This problem in the textbook asks whether C2+, C2, or C2- is expected to have the lowest ionization energy. The solutions manual states that based off of their electron configurations, C2- is expected to have the lowest ionization energy because its electron is lost from a higher energy MO than eith...

Question 7.C 2010 Midterm Practice Exam

In the practice 2010 midterm for question 7 part c they ask if the molecule H2CBr2 is polar or nonpolar. I thought it was nonpolar because the Hydrogen and Bromine's are evenly on opposite sides of each other, so wouldn't their charges cancel out? The solutions answer says it's a polar molecule and ...

Re: Chapter 2 Question 43

This is a follow up question..

Isn't this more stable? Because its actual electron configuration is 4f...
