I feel like it would be most important to know neo- and iso-, probably not so much for the other ones listed in the course reader. I remember Dr. Lavelle saying that some of the common names are actually not commonly used anymore (like vinyl I think).

The question asks for standard enthalpy of formation, which is always going to be kJ/mol. By definition, standard enthalpy of formation is "the change in enthalpy when one mole of a substance in the standard state (1 atm of pressure and 298.15 K) is formed from its pure elements under the same ...

You use the integrated rate law when time is involved.

W is just (# of orientations)^(# of particles), so I don't think W has to do with the molar mass of one single molecule

It comes from Cv = (3/2)R, given in the formula sheet. It's the molar heat capacity at constant volume for a monoatomic ideal gas.

Two chemists go into a bar. The first one says "I think I'll have an H2O." The second one says "I think I'll have an H2O too" — and he died.
