Re: Stability

Yes, equatorial conformation is always more stable than axial conformations. For example, we discussed in class that equatorial conformations were more stable than axial conformations in cyclohexane.

Bimolecular Nucleophile Substitution

If asked a question like what type of reaction mechanism is this, can we simply answer Sn2 or do we have to write out the entire name? Thanks.

Re: 2.16 Intro to Ochem chapter 2

I believe you look at atomic number.

Re: Naming from Line Structure

I believe you read the cyclical depending on the alphabet of the methyl groups.

Re: How do you know which is the anode and which is the cathode?

You are being asked for the acid dissociation constant (Ka) for HF. Therefore, you need to end up with the form HF-->H^+ + F^-. Then, you would have to flip the top reaction to resemble oxidation. I hope this helps.

Re: Winter 2013 Midterm Q2A

Q2C
I can do this problem mathematically, but I'm sure there is a much simpler way to do the problem. Any thoughts?

Re: Midterm Winter 2017

Will the quiz solutions be provided to us or do we need to seek help from a T.A. or U.A. regarding our questions?

Re: Heat and thermal Energy

I believe that heat and thermal energy are practically identical. "Thermal" in thermal energy refers to heat, so heat energy.

Re: Total Mass

Yes, you would utilize the sum of the total mass. For example, all of the water in the calorimeter (g) or the collection of the water and whatever substance may be dissolving inside of the water.
