Summary of Units

Postby Ellis Song 4I » Wed Feb 12, 2020 4:45 pm

q = J
w = J
= J
= J/mol, J/g
= J/K, J/°C
= J
k/Q = no units

Feel free to correct me or add on

Will it matter on the midterm what we leave our answers in, if not specified explicitly in the problem?

My TA said it is better to use kJ for ∆H, and J for the other values. Do you think this is really important, or is it just a preference?

To me, it seems to be a personal preference. Either would work.
