### 2015 Final 6B

For this question, I understand that we must use the pre-equilibrium approach to get rid of the intermediate [ES] in the rate law. After doing this, we get k2(k1/k1')[E][S], but [E] is a catalyst and I thought we cannot have catalysts in the rate law as well as intermediates. Can someone please expl...

### Re: Help Drawing Newman Projections

I believe you would first draw the staggered Newman Projection; then on the 3 bonds connected to carbon 1 (the front carbon on the Newman Projection) you would write H. For the 3 bonds connected to carbon 2 (the carbon in the back which is not visible on the Newman projection), you would write H for...

### Re: Increasing Standard Molar Entropy

In this case, CF4 has the highest standard molar entropy because it is the most massive molecule (it contains 4 flourines). CH3F seems like it would have more positional molar entropy, but it has less mass than CF4.

### Re: Identifying the nucleophile or electrophile

A lot of the time it depends on the electronegativity of the elements in question. For example, if the carbon atom is connected to only one oxygen, it will have a smaller delta positive charge while the oxygen has a small delta negative charge. If the carbon atom is attached to two oxygens, it will ...

### Re: Arrows

To add on, you draw the arrows from the bond to the element (which tends to be more electronegative) and draw arrows from the lone-pair electrons of an element (nucleophile, usually an ion) to the element that would be receiving the electrons.

### Re: Steady-State Approach vs. Pre-Equilibrium Approach[ENDORSED]

Yes, I believe it is correct to assume we use the Pre-Equilibrium approach when the first elementary step in a reaction mechanism is fast.

### Pre-Equilibrium Approach

Can someone please explain page 73 in the course reader? How did we know that step 2 was the slow step?

### Re: Inert Electrodes

We would use inert electrodes when the elements of one half reaction (or both) are in the same state (both aqueous) or when the states are aqueous and gas. In other words, we would need to use a Platinum electrode when there is no solid present.

### Re: Molar Heat Capacity

I believe molar heat capacity would be considered an intensive property. It is defined as "heat required to raise the temperature of 1 mole of substance by 1 degree Celsius," therefore, since it is the heat needed for SPECIFICALLY 1 mole of substance. Molar heat capacity values do not depe...

### Re: Wavelength of Ejected Electron[ENDORSED]

I know that you would use the DeBroglie equation when dealing with particles that have a measurable mass, such as an electron. The equations E=hv and lambda=hc/E would be used when dealing with massless particles.

Hope this somewhat helps!
