### Difference between G(naught) and change in G

What is the difference between ∆G°and just ∆G? It would really help to clarify the concepts behind each of these.

### Explanation for relationship between equations

Why is it that for reversible systems use the equations w=-nRTln(V2/V1) and irreversible systems use the equation w=-P*delta V?

### Equilibrium Values

At equilibrium, why is it that delta H, delta G, and delta S equals 0?
I wanted to clarify the reasoning behind each of these. Also, do these tie into their spontaneous positive or negative values?

### Drawing Newman structures

The course reader states that we should be able to draw Newman structures and visualize molecules from Newman structures. I was wondering what would be the steps or set of rules to follow when it comes to drawing the Newman structures. In addition, how would we be tested on this on the final? Thank ...

### Nucleophile Clarification[ENDORSED]

The Chapter 4 description of Nucleophile and Electrophile mentions hard and soft nucleophiles. (on page 149 if someone wanted to reference it) I don't quite understand what those are and their differences. If someone could clarify that and some examples would be really helpful as well. Thanks in adv...

### Biological Example Clarification

In lecture today, we discussed how Cholesterol was a biological example of Electrophilic addition reaction. I understand that the HBr species is being added onto the other reactant to ultimately the cholesterol but can someone clarify what happens so that is it possible for this to happen. In additi...

### Zero Order Half-Life Relationship

Hi, I was reading through the course reader trying to understand half-life reactions. Can someone explain why it says the half-life zero order reaction depends on the initial condition of A. Like what their relationship is?

### Half-Reactions

Hi, I just needed a clarification on half-reactions and the difference between oxidation and reduction half-reactions. It would really be helpful to know how to combine them to produce a balanced redox reaction.

### Concentration affect on Cell Potential

Hello, I would just wondering if some could clarify for me how Le Chatelier's Principle is used in the instance of raising a concentration of a reactant/ product to raise a cell potential. During lecture, we were shown this information, I would really appreciate it if one can clarify how that connec...

### Re: Difference between K and Q

From what I understood related to today's lecture is that the change of Free Energy from reactants to products is the same as standard free energy +RT In Q. In addition to that K stands for the concentration of the products over the concentration of the reactants at equilibrium. Whereas Q stands for...
