Re: least covalent character

So then HCl would have less covalent character than say CF4 right? Or do the 4 F's make any difference?

Re: equilibrium constant

This is a little off topic, but do we need to know how temperature affects equilibrium? If so, how does it?

Re: Naming Coordination Compounds

when given the name of a compound, how do you know the order in which each element goes in the molecular formula?

Re: Clarification on R and P Calculations

I also have a question. Why is it that solids and liquids are not included in the R and P calculations?

Re: Which Hybrid Orbital

if there is a double or triple bond, that only counts as one electron density correct?

Re: Covalent and Ionic Character

So if ionic character depends on the difference of electronegativity between two atoms, HF would have more ionic character than say HCl? Even though there's still a fairly large difference in electronegativity in the latter?

Re: Angles of molecular shapes

To clarify, is the electron density the factor behind the bending of the angles of the bonds?

Re: Lewis Structure Octet Rule [ENDORSED]

I'm confused about which cases there would be a double or triple bond?

Re: All students read this sig fig post [ENDORSED]

Do constants play a role in the significant figures an answer should have?

Re: Frequency, wavelength, and Energy of light

In what situations does light act as a wave, and when does it act like a particle?
