What you recalled in lecture is correct; however, in lecture, we discussed cis isomers with substituents attached to carbons 1 and 4. In cis-1-chloro-3-ethylcyclohexane, the substituents are connected to carbons 1 and 3. Cis means that both substituents will be on the same side, and therefore pointi...
CH3CH2CH2OCH2CH2CH2CH3 is an ether. Try to focus on the carbons surrounding the oxygen. "...CH2OCH2..." Both of these carbons are attached to two hydrogens, another neighboring carbon, and an oxygen. This means thats the bonds around the carbon must be single bonds, and therefore between t...

Oxygen went on a date with Potassium. It was OK. But I thought Oxygen was with Magnesium! OMG! At first Oxygen asked out Nitrogen, but Nitrogen was all like "NO!" so Oxygen had that double bond with the Hydrogen twins...If I didn't know any better, I'd say someone was a HO, but Sodium Hypo...
From O3 --> O2, you want to first balance the reactions by adding H2O and OH- since the reactions are occuring in basic solutions. From there, you will get H2O+O3-->O2+2OH-. On the left side, the oxygens have a total charge of 2- (the net charge of H20 is 0, 2+ from hydrogen and 2- from oxygen; in O...

Irreversible reactions are less efficient than reversible reactions, but they occur much faster than reversible reactions.

Residual entropy is the entropy (disorder) of a system without taking into account any thermal energy. At 0 degrees Kelvin, the molecules of a system will not vibrate, rotate, or move, so the entropy of a system at 0K would only take into account the positions the molecules of that system. For examp...

As previously stated, the main formula is enthalpy of products – enthalpy of reactants. The goal is to have the given multiple reactions add up to equal the main reaction. To manipulate these reactions, you may sometimes need to either flip the reaction, or multiply it by a coefficient. For example,...
