Use of Angstrom?

Postby 005343842 » Wed Oct 16, 2019 12:19 pm

How often will be expected to convert to units of Angstrom? When is it used the most in Chemistry?

Based on AP Chemistry, we rarely had to convert to units of Angstrom. That being said, Angstroms are most used to describe bond length, which I believe is our next unit. We may be expected to use it most in that unit.

Hope this helped!

I think that the use of angstroms will just depend on the unit we are in. While it could come up in any question, it seems like angstroms won't occur as frequently in this Quantum unit as some other units, such as out chemical bonds unit. As long as you know how to convert with angstroms, you should be find though.

Knowing how to convert to angstrom is helpful, however I just wanted to add on that on the last test, the conversation was given, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
