### Re: H2O[ENDORSED]

Since there are lone pairs on oxygen, and since lone pairs are indicative of nucleophiles, H2O is a nucleophile.

### Re: First order, second order reactions[ENDORSED]

The rate constant for a second order process depends on the initial concentration of a reactant, whereas this is of no concern for a first order reaction.

The answer should be rounded at the last step according to sig figs. Otherwise, it is very likely to get a different answer.

### Re: 2006 Final Q8B

If you separate the compound, you'll receive NH4+ and Br-. Thus, the chemical equation will come out to be NH4+ + H20 -> NH3 + H3O+. Therefore, since NH4+ is a strong acid, the pH will be below 7, for acids are solutions with pH less than 7.

Just in case, although we do not need to know the Latin names, I would remember the important ones, or the ones that are used most often. Otherwise, it will most likely be given.

### Re: Quiz 2 Question 1 Wording[ENDORSED]

Compounds with ionic character have big differences in electronegativity.
On the other hand, compounds with covalent character have small differences in electronegativity.

### Re: Chapter 1 question 15

First, use the equation v=c/lambda to get frequency = 2.922 x 10^15 Hz. Then, use the Rydberg equation to find n2 since you are aware that n1=1. After you find n2, you can identity the transition from energy level 1 to another energy level, which should be n2=3.

### Re: Post Module Question

Yes! When using the equation wavelength=h/(mv), you can manipulate the equation to be v=h/(m x wavelength). When inputting the numbers given, you then have v= (6.626 x 10^-34 J s)/((9.11 x 10^-31 kg)(7.28 x 10^-9m)). Then, you're velocity will equal 99908.32, which rounds to 1.00 x 10^-5, as you are...

### Re: When do we know whether to use gram vs. kilogram, etc.?[ENDORSED]

Usually, the problem will specify what the units it wants the answer in. However, also be aware that Joules is given in kilograms, meters, and seconds, so when cancelling units in equations, make sure that other units are converted into these before doing the problem.
