For this question we have to pick which chemicals to use for the galvanic cell and the correct answer says to pick Zn and Fe(NO3) would it be wrong we chose to do the galvanic cell with Zn and Cu(NO3)2?

I could be totally wrong but I think it has to do something with the pi bond being able to break apart and allow for the carbons to be attacked by the chlorines

I've found that with safari sometimes bruin cast works but other times it asks for silverlight to be installed so what I've done is restarted my browser a few times and then it begins to work normally, hope that helps!

If the reaction can be under kinetic control before equilibrium conditions are established does that mean the same can be said for during the time it's at equilibrium?

The rules are also all in the beginning of the course reader if you need help remembering them

Do we just have to memorize the strong bases in order to know that NH3 is a weak base?

Why are weak bases like NH3 not completely ionized? What forces them to not completely dissociate?

In lecture we discussed how cisplatin would be formed instead of its trans counterpart because in biological contexts its more useful for chemotherapy etc., but in general how would we know which ligand would form more likely in the cis shape or the trans shape?
Lewis structures give a pretty good visual of the outer electrons for an atom and when there is a polyatomic ion involved it can actually give you a better understanding of how those atoms bond together.

Can someone please clarify the statement mentioned in lecture that electrons are the orbitals? I’m a bit confused because it was also mentioned electrons are in the orbitals.
