Re: (E)-But-2-en-1-ol

Because there is a double bond you need to identify the geometric isomer, being cis or tans.

Re: Ring Flip

The ring flip just two ways of drawing the chair conformation and it occurs with random collisions. Both have the same energy except when there are substituents. When this occurs there is one chair structure that is preferred based on the one that has the lower energy.

Re: Cell Diagram and Pt(s)

You add Pt(s) when the reactants are any other phase than a solid so that there is something that can transfer the electrons as it is inert and will not participate in the chemical reaction.

Re: A in the Arrhenius equation

A is also usually used when a catalyst or enzyme is discussed as that is the factor that gets affected when the enzyme positions a molecule in a certain way so that the reaction will occur.

The 2 in two butene means that there is a double bond as it ends in "en" and the double bond is between Carbon 2 and 3.

Why did the electron want to go to the party?

Re: Quiz Prep 1, #8

For this question, you do not need to calculate any numbers. It is mainly asking for which of the following are state functions. You can get this from the question as it states that the temperature returns back to its original 298K, the volume returns back to V initial and the pressure returns back ...

Re: Qualitative ways to find Entropy

You can also look at them through their structure and the statistical entropy for each through their degeneracy. This can be done by imagining that the molecules are cooled to 0K and seeing how many ways they can be at 0K to find their degeneracy.

Gibbs Free Energy at during Phase Change

The textbook mentions: "The Gibbs free energy of 1 mol H2O(l) must be the same as the Gibbs free energy of 1 mol H2O(s)." What is the reasoning behind this as the enthalpy for water is different as solid water and liquid water. Shouldn't this enthalpy difference correlate to a difference i...

Textbook Problem 8.21

I was wondering how to start this problem and if I do two separate equations for water and copper. A piece of copper of mass 20.0 g at 100.0 C is placed in a vessel of negligible heat capacity but containing 50.7 g of water at 22.0 C. Calculate the final temperature of the water. Assume that no ener...

Re: By or On the System? [ENDORSED]

Work is either done ON the system by a force and thus the system would gain energy and if work is done BY the system it would lose energy and thus the internal energy of the system can be increased or decreased based on a net gain or net loss.
