Re: Z and E how to tell the difference

For those, look at the main chain of the carbons, then where the double bond is in the structure. Look at the two biggest molecules on the bond and identify if they are both going in the same direction (up or down). If they are, it would be a cis structure. If the two biggest molecules on the bond a...

Re: 2.16

I believe the #s would be written separately because they are different halides and this way they would not be confused with each other in the naming (even if they are on the same carbon).

Re: Self-Test 1.3A [ENDORSED]

You would get the longest chain for that is a hexane and then there are two methyl substituents (the ones at the top branching off). I believe that is what is giving it the name 2,3-dimethlyhexane because you are trying to get the biggest counting chain meaning if you count the branch off of the 2nd...

Re: Nernst Equation Versions [ENDORSED]

You can use both equations for any situation in which you can use the Nernst equation. They should both get you the same answer. It is just a matter of preference and log is usually used when the numbers given for concentrations is to the 10s (.1 or .001) because it is easier to find the log of such...

Re: Nernst Equation (ln vs log) [ENDORSED]

Both ln and log can be used for the Nernst equation but log is used over ln for simplicity. Using ln instead of log should give you the same answer. In that specific problem, I believe they used log because it is just an alternate form of the same equation but usually log is used in place of ln when...

Re: Expansion work done by/on the system - Problem 8.17

The phase state of the system does affect whether work is done on/by the system, such as in a) work is done by the system because there is expansion from a solid to a liquid (liquids are more dispersed in a sense and therefore there is expansion). It is also okay to assume that w is positive when wo...

Re: molecular orbital electron configuration [ENDORSED]

You start from the valence orbital of the electron configuration because you are only counting in the valence electrons when using the MO theory. For instance, for C (carbon) you would start at 2s because it is in period 2 of the periodic table and then increase to 2p from there. Hope this helps!

Re: Finding the "Highest L value for the e-" [ENDORSED]

It would be worded usually from negative to positive. I don't believe it technically matters which order you put it in, but generally the rule for L is -L to postive L so it would be better to word it from negative to positive values of the L.

Re: weakbase-strong acid question

The stoichiometric point is below the ph of 7 because acids have a pH lower than 7. If you add a weak base and a strong acid, the acid has a stronger affect on the stoichiometric point therefore lowering the pH below 7. Basically, after you mix the strong acid and weak base together, the solution is...

Re: pKb and pKa

The weaker bases have a smaller Kb which makes them have a greater pKb (this is the same for Ka and pKa). That means, the smaller the pKb is, the bigger the Kb is and therefore it would be a stronger base. For instance, methylamine has a Kb of 3.6x10^-4 and the pKb is 3.44 (low) which makes it more ...
