Re: IuPac Naming

They're not interchangeable. Iso- refers to the C-C single bond connectivity in the structural pattern and dimethyl- means that there are two methyl groups attached to the molecule. IF you look on page 9 of the Introduction to Organic Chemistry course reader, you'll see an example of this in play in...

Quiz 3 will also include electrophillic addition, in addition to sN2 mechanisms.

Re: Arrhenius [ENDORSED]

I'm pretty sure the third quiz will focus on the new organic chemistry material, since the focus of quiz 2 was kinetics. I wouldn't rule it out being on the final though, so just be comfortable with the material in case it does show up on the final.

Re: Finding change in volume

So, for step 1, the problem is stating that there is constant volume. This means delta V is equal to 0 so work is equal to 0. Therefore the change in internal energy is equal to heat gain/loss. Since the system absorbs heat, q= +50.0 J and delta U = +50.0 J. In step 2, there is a return to the origi...

Re: Quiz 1 #7

Oh wait, sorry follow up: correction. For process 3, I explained incorrectly. Because the system is under a constant pressure, raising the temperature would lead to greater thermal motion and greater disorder and thus an increase in entropy. I apologize for the confusion, I misread the question.

Re: Quiz 1 #7

So for question 7: first recall that entropy is a measure of disorder, so the more positions there are for atoms and molecules to move in the more disorder there is, which means a higher entropy. Part 1 says that the pressure of 1 mole of gas is allowed to double isothermally. Pressure and volume ar...

Re: Chem 14B and 14BL [ENDORSED]

It depends, if two classes from a series are co-requisites then they can be taken at the same time--like Chem 14b and bl. If you click on the course name, for instance, in your course planner, it will give you details and tell you requisites and co-requisites for a specific course.

Re: Comparing Moles vs Comparing Reactant and Product

When comparing moles of reactant with moles of another reactant, you refer to the balanced chemical equation to find the mole of reactant:mole of reactant ratio. For comparing moles reactant to moles product, the only difference is you refer to the product instead of the reactant. For example in the...

Re: Relative size of cations and anions

Cations are smaller than their parent atoms because when they lose electron(s) the pull of the nucleus on the remaining electrons becomes stronger and 'draws in' the remaining electrons leading to cations being smaller than their parent atoms. Likewise, anions are larger than their parent atoms beca...

Re: Atomic Spectra #8 in Fall 2015 Quiz Prep [ENDORSED]

These types of problems sometimes depend on what values you use for constants. For example, if you use 2.998 X10^8 m/s for speed of light versus 3.000X10^8 m/s your answer might not be 100% the same both times. The same goes for Rydberg's constant, Planck's constant, etc. I feel like there may be a ...
