Re: Atomic Spectra question 1.11 [ENDORSED]

What do you mean by the lowest energy level for that series? Wouldn't n=1 be the lowest energy level for all of them?

Re: Fe and proteins

What is the significance of them being proteins? Does that change anything? Do we need to identify if it's a protein?

Re: Strings in Nanotechnology

If there are other industrial uses on the final, I don't think we have to know them by heart. I'm sure he'll give us all the information we need in the problem since we didn't really go over industrial uses in class.

Re: Naming

So are the chart of different ligands and all those super complicated ligands and coordinate compounds I still need to memorize fair game?

Re: Definition of a Ligand [ENDORSED]

I was unable to make it to lecture on Friday due to an illness so I will probably be in office hours this week. I do not understand ligands. How is it able to donate both electrons without making an expanded octet? Or am I missing something major about how it bonds?

Re: Hybridization [ENDORSED]

How do you figure out out the hybridization from the number of regions of electron density? How does 3 regions correlate to sp2?

Re: Ionic or Covalent Bond: Electronegativity Difference

Will he give us a question with one in the middle and we have to estimate or can we assume that he won't give us a question where it's in the middle?

Posting on chem com

Does posting on a weekend count as posting for the previous week or the upcoming week?

Re: Expansion of Shrodinger Equation [ENDORSED]

What is meaning of the Hamiltonian? I mean, how does it relate in Schrodinger's equation? Is it just the change in the wave function?

Spectral Fingerprint

I don't know if this is required to know or not but I was curious as to why elements have spectral fingerprints. Why do atoms eject only certain wavelengths of light? Why are the wavelengths different for each element?
