Re: Phase Changes

During a phase change, the objective is to break the bonds from phase to phase so the energy of the temperature added is used to break those bonds rather actually change the temperature until the phase change is over.

Re: Internal Energy

From my understanding if I'm correct.... Delta u is 0 in an isolated system in which there is no temperature change. That means the system is isothermal, the temperature is constant and delta u is equal to 0. Therefore q=-w or vice versa -q=w. Hope thats makes sense and is helpful.

Re: Strong Acids and Bases

This question goes along with my question... I know that you it depends on whether the acid or base gives fully or take fully, but how do you know which ones fully do or partially do?

Re: Lewis Structure Octet Rule Exceptions

What is the best way to recognize when an element has an expanded octet? Is it only the specific elements or does it have to do with its placement on the periodic table?

Re: Rydberg constant

The constant he uses in the course reader and the constant and equation sheet he gave us is the 3.289x10^15/3.29x10^15. I'm not sure why the other equation was used for the specific question...

Re: Quiz one topics

Everything I've heard about the quizzes are they are very fast paced, but the workbook is the best way to prepare yourself for the actual quiz itself. Can we get help on workbooks with the TAs and the UAs?
