Constants that need to be memorized

Postby RahilVaknalliDis3A » Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:22 pm

I was unsure which constants need to be memorized, other than Planck's constant and the Rydberg formula. Do we also need to know the conversion of EV to Joules?

I'm not certain but I think most of the constants will be given to us on the test so you don't need to memorize much.

My TA asked Dr Lavelle and confirmed that the constants and equations will be provided for the test.

Even though the constants will be provided on the test, make sure to memorize the equations. This may seem obvious, but understanding which equation is used for which problem is the most important part. The only way to know is by doing the homework and other practice problems. Good luck !

Something I was told during discussions is that it would be beneficial to memorize the atomic masses of CO2, N2, O2, H2O due to the fact that they are used very often on tests it will make it easier and gives you more time.

On Lavelle's website, you'll find a link that says "Constants and Equations." I feel like the ones in there will be given on the test.

I don't think you need to memorize the equations or constants, but I think that you should be very familiar with how to use them and what types of questions to use them in.
