Final exam

Postby Malik Oda 1F » Sat Nov 23, 2019 3:06 pm

Just to make sure, the final is going to cover all topics we learned this quarter including high school review?

Yea! Basically everything that we have learned in lecture is fair game for the final.

Yes the final can include anything from the first day of lecture up until the last day of lecture. If you don’t know what exact concepts you need to know from each section the outlines always have the concepts that he expects you to know.

Does anyone know approximately how many questions the final exam will be?

Test tip from one of the UAs: the number of minutes given for the exam=the number of points on the exam so pace yourself as best you can!!

The questions will most likely look like the ones we had on the midterms and the two quizzes so it would be beneficial to look back over those.

Just a prediction given how our tests have been laid out:

The test is likely to be heavy on the acids and bases questions and lewis structures (drawing dot structures and doing VSEPR). If there are 8 problems, it's probably gonna be

1 HS review question, but made complicated (like empirical/molecular formula derivation that requires multistep stoichiometry)
2 quantum problems
1 multi-part question on electron configurations/orbitals
1 coordination compound problem
1-2 VSEPR/molecular shape problem (probably asking about bond types/hybridization as well)
1-2 acid and base questions (pH, drawing reactions, indicating what is stronger/weaker, etc.)

How much of the acid-base section is going to be on the final? I'm not sure what to focus on.

Acids and bases is probably be one of the topics I would focus on more since we haven't been tested on that yet.

Do we also need to go over the buffer solutions? I wasn't sure because I remember Professor Lavelle saying that it was a chem 14b concept...

the final does not cover the pre midterm content as thoroughly, while it still includes those topic, it mostly focuses on post midterm content

the number of questions depends on the amount of time we spent on the topic
