### Final 2015 #9b

Why do we use "hydroxy" to indicate the alcohol groups in naming #9b instead using the -ol ending?

### Final 2011 #1c

In Final 2011, #1c it asks for which has a greater residual entropy at 0K: NO or BF3.

The answer is NO, but I don't understand why.

Thank you.

### Re: (W 2010 Final )Which requires more heat?

Does the one mole of butane require more heat because it is larger in terms of atomic mass?

### Quiz 2

On the last question for quiz #2, I stated that the rate limiting step was step 2, but got it wrong. I thought step 1 could not be the rate limiting step because it was at equilibrium, shown by the double arrows between the reactants and products. I don't understand why step 1 would have to be the r...

### Re: Quiz 3 Winter 2017

For number 1, I wrote down 4-isopropyldecane as my answer, but I don't understand why it can also be 4-(1-methleythyl) decane

### Self Test 4.4 A

I don't understand why step one would have the larger Ea when the y-axis was labeled potential energy for part c.

Are the reaction profiles different when potential energy v. gibbs free energy is on the y-axis?

### Reaction Profile

What exactly is a reaction profile? There is not much information on it on the course reader and wondering if anyone would provide a better explanation?

Thank you.

### Problem 14.15

Problem 14.15 in the textbook asks "Write the half-reactions and devise a galvanic cell (write a cell diagram) to study each of the following reactions." Part (b) is H(aq)+OH(aq) --> H2O(l), the Brønsted neutralization reaction. I don't understand how to get the half reactions for this r...

### Self-Test 14.13A

I was reading through the textbook and tried to solve out self test 14.13A on page 593. It says: "Predict the products resulting from the electrolysis of 1 m AgNO3(aq)." The answer is given to be [Cathode, Ag; anode, O2]. Even after reading the text and previous examples in the section, I ...

### 9.13 Changes in Entropy

I had a question on 9.13. "During the test of an internal combustion engine, 3.00 L of nitrogen gas at 18.5 C was compressed suddenly (and irreversibly) to 0.500 L by driving in a piston. In the process, the temperature of the gas increased to 28.1 C. Assume ideal behavior. What is the change...

### Re: Hw question 8.57

In this specific question of the HW you need to use Hess's Law, since they give you information of the standard enthalpy of combustion of C 2 H 2 , C 2 H 6 , and H 2 . But I think you can use standard enthalpies of formation because I tried calculating and I got the same answer of -312 kJ/mol. You m...
