HW #1.65

Postby Cytlalli 1B » Sun Apr 22, 2018 1:28 pm

The question asks The energy required to break a C-C bond in a molecule is 348 kJxmol-1. Will visible light be able to break this bond? If yes, what is the color of that light? If not, what type of electromagnetic radiation will be suitable?

My question is once I know if the visible light can break this bond or not do I answer the second part through looking at the chart that's in the book with the different values of each type of light or electromagnetic radiation or would it be through another way?

I looked at the chart in the book. Not sure whether something like this will be asked of us on a test. In that case, I think the only way to know is just through memorization.

This is not covered by Test 2 since the questions only go up to 41 according to Dr. Lavelle's announcement on his website.

To determine this, you need to find out the energy per 1 bond, and Ephoton must match this energy.
