Re: Nernst Equation

They give the same result as long as the temperature is at 298K. The second equation just multiplied all of the constants (assuming T is 298K) and also took into account the conversion from ln to log.

The 2 means the carbon carbon double bond starts at carbon 2 (between the second and third carbon) so it would be CH3-CH=CH-CH3.

Re: Homework problem 1.16 cycloalkane naming

So first you see that the longest chain is the ring which has five carbons making it cyclopentane. Now looking at the substituents, on one of the carbons, you have two methyl groups and on another carbon you have an isopropyl group. There are two ways to number the carbons (counter clockwise or cloc...

You need to find the velocity of the electron first in order to calculate the kinetic energy of the electron.

Re: Unique Frequencies with atoms/molecules

I did a little research and what I found is that when an electron in an excited state goes through an electronic transition, the atom loses energy as the electron moves to a lower energy state. Thus the atom emits light because the energy that was lost is being emitted as a photon. https://www.dartm...
