Re: Saying Thank You to Dr. Lavelle

Dr. Lavelle, As a student who needs to work hard to understand material, I really appreciate the way your class was structured.

Re: 2013 Final Exam practice

Re: Order of naming

You want the set of numbers that has the lowest number. 1 is the lowest number, so use the set that has 1, which is 1,6. Side note: you'd think it was 2,3 because that has lower numbers overall but IUPAC doesn't have a "lowest sum" rule or anything (ie 2+3 is less than 1+6), just lowest n...

Re: Le Chatelier

Is there an easy way to remember how a change in pressure would effect the equilibrium? I am looking at the "quick way" in the course reader but still a little confused. Can someone explain in their own words?

Thanks!
