Torsional Strain

Can you clarify torsional strain? Does it occur more with staggered conformations or eclipsed conformations and why?

Naming

How do you know when to use IUPAC naming versus common naming? Are both acceptable?

Reactions Involving Nucleophiles and Electrophiles

Does the reaction involving nucleophiles and electrophiles always involve breaking a double bond like the detailed example we went through in class on Friday?

Midterm 2017 Regrade

How do I go about requesting a regrade for question 3c on the Midterm in 2017? Who do I go to/how do I petition for it?

Ways to Approach Proposed Reaction Mechanisms

How do you know when to use the steady-state approach or the pre-equilibrium approach? When do you use each approach?

Reaction Order [ENDORSED]

How common is it for higher reaction orders to occur, such as 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc to occur? Why do we not study these orders?

Gibbs Free Energy

Why is Gibbs Free Energy a state function? Wouldn't the energy that is readily available be important to know throughout the process and not just at the initial and final states?

Heat versus Work [ENDORSED]

Because heat and work both are defined as a transfer in energy (where heat is a transfer in energy due to a change in temperature and work is a transfer in energy due to an external force), how can you distinguish heat from work acting on a system?
