### MIDTERM PRACTICE - Garlic Bread Review Session

Eventually, my posts always get lost.
The title says "Garlic Bread" so that you can search "Garlic Bread" and easily find this post!

This is Lyndon Bui, a UA, and I have created many helpful practice problems for your midterm. The questions are modeled after previous test and exam questions, but it may not have everything you need to know. This covers material for the midterm.

Please complete these problems before my review session. My review session this quarter (F18) will be Saturday, Nov3 in CS24: 3-6PM I will go over each problem in detail during my review session. The answers, but not full solutions or work, will be posted here at this post after the review session. Any errors in the test will be posted below as well.

Printed copies will NOT be provided at the review session.

Link to Download Problems: Problems no longer available. Quarter has ended. See Course website and syllabus for most up-to-date material.

***This is not indicative of the structure, length, or format of the actual midterm. Treat these as extra practice problems. ***

Errors: None Found Yet (I'm too good)

Happy Studying and Good Luck!

Thank you so much! Are you going to post more midterm practice worksheets? Where can we get more practice problems from?

LYNDON: I will not be posting more practice worksheets. I do hand out paper copies of practice at my normal session workshops. However, you can only get previous ones from students who attended.

### Re: MIDTERM PRACTICE - Garlic Bread Review Session

Can anyone help me with 9b? It asks for the electron configuration of Chromium. I got an answer of [Ar]4s2 3d4 but I looked it up online and it says that its' actually [Ar]4s1 3d5. Why is one of the 4s electrons actually in the 3d orbital? I looked it up and it mentioned something about stability? So does this always happen with elements in the 3d block or is it an exception for chromium? Thanks

### Re: MIDTERM PRACTICE - Garlic Bread Review Session

Chromium is an exception, because it will be more stable to have half of the d block filled and only one electron in the s block, [Ar]3d5 4s1 instead of [Ar]3d4 4s2. Copper is also an exception, and its electron configuration will be [Ar]3d10 4s1. From its placement on the periodic table, you would expect it to be [Ar]3d9 4s2 (like for Chromium you would expect [Ar]3d4 4s2) but it is more stable having an entirely full d block and one electron in its valence s shell.

Actually, I just solved it. ill walk you through it:

first you want ti divide the percentages by the molar mass. (C - 3.6 ; H - 6.3 ; O - 3.15). Next, you want to divide by the smallest number (3.15). (C - 1.14 ; H - 2; O - 1). Now, you want to multiply all the numbers until the one with a decimal becomes a whole number. So multiply by 7. You will be left with C8H14O7. After this, you find its molar mass (approx. 222 g/mol), and divide 667 by it. Then you multiply the empirical by 667/222 to get C24H42O21. Ah-hah!

Good luck!

You change it to kg you divide the molar mass of GarBreadium by Avogadro's constant, 6.02*10^23 which gives you 5.244*10^-24g then you divide again by 1000 to get the value in kg.

So the main equation you need is Eph = (work function of metal) - Ek (energy of electron ejected) This is not correct. See post below.

Everything has a wavelength and this can give you the energy for the work function equation.

The equation that you need to find Ek is ---> λ = h / m v

Input the wavelength into that equation 1.10 nm (must be in meters) and find the Velocity of the ejected electron.

So the equation EK = 1/2 m v^2 is used to find the energy of the ejected electron, Input the mass of electron and the velocity to find Ek

So now use Eph = (work function of metal) - Ek (energy of electron ejected)

Eph is the energy of the laser pointer.

Use E = h ν to to find frequency.

Frequency will be in hertz

Don't get mix up v and ν. One means frequency and the other means velocity. Idk you just have to memorize which is which.

The above post is not quite correct.

The correct version is: Energy of photon - work function (threshold energy) = Kinetic energy (of ejected electron)

Hello!

For question 3, I keep getting 37.2 g NO for my answer, not 31.7g NO. Is this an error in the solutions, or did I do something wrong?

Equation: 4NH3 + 5O2 --> 4NO + 6H2O

(21.1 g NH3/17.04 g/mol NH3) x (4 mol NO/4 mol NH3) (30.01 g/mol NO) = 37.16 g NO, rounded to 37.2 g NO.

Please let me know if something is wrong with my stoichiometry. Thanks for putting this review worksheet together! Garlic bread was good review AND a good meme :)

I just realized that I used the wrong limiting reagent. O2 is the limiting reagent, not NH3. I have 31.7 g NO now.

Good! Remember that the amount of product formed is determined by the limiting reactant. Therefore, the reactant that produces less product is limiting and will be used to determine theoretical yield.

sonalivij wrote:Could someone explain 13c to me?

-13c is a Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle problem. The equation for this problem is ΔPΔX=>h/4pi. For this equation we need the mass, the velocity(these two values multipled together are ΔP), and we need ultimately to find ΔX.
-We are given the mass which is 2.8 grams so we have to divide the number by 1000 in order to obtain the SI unit of Kg, and you will get .0028 Kg. This number will be used for our M in ΔP.
-We are also given the speed and in order to find ΔV we have to multiply .34 and 2 together because that is the total uncertainty of the speed, negatively and positively. So our ΔV will be .68 m/s.
-With all of these values that we found we only have one unknown value which is ΔX, so we simply just plug the values into the equation. (.0028 Kg)*(.68 m/s)*(ΔX)>=h/4pi
Using some simple algebra you will get ΔX>=2.8*10^-32 meters. Remember to do significant figures too!

First you must find the weight of a single atom of GarBreadium -> (3.257g/1mol) x (1mol/6.02x20^23atoms) = 5.24x10^-24 g/atoms. Then you multiply by 1000 (1000g in 1 kg). Lastly you plug that in as your m in the de Broglie equation (lambda = h/mv). Ah-hah!

Hope this helped!

For problem 9b, the electron configuration of Chromium is [Ar]3d5 4s1. I thought that the 4s orbital was filled before the 3d orbital. I know Copper and some other elements also follow this trend. Why do these elements only fill one of the two electrons in the 4s or 5s orbitals?

@Kevin Tang, This is because Chromium strives to fulfill the half-filled orbital energy, making it more stable. So instead of 3p4 4s2, it is 3p5 4s1. This is (I think) the only exception when it comes to electron configuration. (as well as all elements in the same group.)

For question 4, the answer is given with only 2 sig figs (the answer is 9.9 mL of 9.9x10^-3 L, even though the question uses 3 sig figs. The question is: What volume of 0.0380 M KMnO4 is needed to prepare 250 mL of 1.50 x 10-3 M KMnO4?
(Hint: In these types of problems, the volume containing solute is diluted with water to the final
volume, in this case 250mL). Would 3 sig figs as my answer be acceptable?

250 mL is only 2 sig figs. The number of sig figs you use should depend on the value that has the least sig figs. Therefore, 2 sig figs is correct .

Hi!
Since the problem stated that only 20ml was removed to the 2nd flask, you put 0.02 as your L1 instead of 0.150 L. Now you should get the right answer.

The variable c incorporates the speed of light into the equation, but ejected electrons cannot travel at the speed of light. Therefore this cannot work. You can only use the speed of light when working with photons.

Nitrogen must have an octet. We will often see Nitrogen with 3 bonds and one lone pair so that it has an octet and it has 0 formal charge, but sometimes it can have 4 bonds and no lone pairs, giving it a +1 formal charge.

The formula you have presented is NOT for kinetic energy. That formula is only for energy of photons (light). Since the problem gave only the wavelength of the electron, and since an electron is not a photon, your method will not work.

In the problem it says that the speed is 373.34 +/- 0.34 m/s. Where are you getting the 2 from?

### Re: MIDTERM PRACTICE - Garlic Bread Review Session

For 8B I understand that we need to use E(photon) - work function = kinetic energy. We are given the wavelength and work function. However, I don't know where to use the wavelength since E(photon)=h*frequency and we have the given work function and Kinetic energy= 1/2 Mass* Velocity(unknown). Can someone please explain how to solve this? Thank you!

For number 11, part b why would delta E be a negative value? If the problem is asking for the change in energy from n = 6 to n = 4, and the formula is
E = -hR(1/n1^2 - 1/n2^2), the energy released from n = 6 to n = 4 equals 7.5689 x 10^-20 J. So, why is the answer negative?

Uncertainty is the range of values that we are unsure about. This means taking the highest possible speed, then subtracting the lowest possible speed. This will give you the uncertainty. You will find that doing so is the same as multiplying 0.34 by 2.

Delta E is the change in energy. When you go from 6 to 4, you are going from a higher energy state to a lower energy state. When going from high to low, the change is negative. The electron therefore lost energy. The energy lost takes the form of a photon, and photons always have positive energy.

Remember that the change in energy is that of the final energy (n=4) minus the initial energy (n=6). This should give you a negative change in energy. Hope this helps!

Hi!
Since the problem stated that only 20ml was removed to the 2nd flask, you put 0.02 as your L1 instead of 0.150 L. Now you should get the right answer.

I'm confused as to why .02 L would be the initial volume, if when we calculate the initial molarity (mol/L of KMnO4) in the compound we use .150 L, rather than .020L?

-13c is a Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle problem. The equation for this problem is ΔPΔX=>h/4pi. For this equation we need the mass, the velocity(these two values multipled together are ΔP), and we need ultimately to find ΔX.
-We are given the mass which is 2.8 grams so we have to divide the number by 1000 in order to obtain the SI unit of Kg, and you will get .0028 Kg. This number will be used for our M in ΔP.
-We are also given the speed and in order to find ΔV we have to multiply .34 and 2 together because that is the total uncertainty of the speed, negatively and positively. So our ΔV will be .68 m/s.
-With all of these values that we found we only have one unknown value which is ΔX, so we simply just plug the values into the equation. (.0028 Kg)*(.68 m/s)*(ΔX)>=h/4pi
Using some simple algebra you will get ΔX>=2.8*10^-32 meters. Remember to do significant figures too!

In the problem it says that the speed is 373.34 +/- 0.34 m/s. Where are you getting the 2 from?

You have to take the +/- 0.34 m/s and multiply by two to get the change in velocity. For example, if the velocity is (100 m/s +/- 1 m/s) then delta velocity is 2 m/s. That is, we took 1 * 2. You can also see it as 99-101 m/s which is also a delta velocity of 2 m/s. Hope this helps!

For question 12c, why is it better to have a triple bond with the two nitrogen atoms instead of double bonds on nitrogen and oxygen? The charge is both the same.

It is better to have a triple bond as opposed to a double bond because Oxygen is the more electronegative atom.

I don't understand why in order of increasing ionization energy, it goes C O N F. I thought it would be C N O F. Anyone know why?

Nitrogen is an exception (so is phosphorus) to the trend in that it has a half-filled subshell, 2p^3, which makes it harder for an electron to be removed.

Question 6b is asking if a Helium atom or a "new" element GarBreadium have longer wavelengths. The answer key says the GarBreadium will have a longer wavelength but isn't it He because it is less heavy, therefore the denominator in de Broglie's equation $\lambda =h/m\cdot v$ be smaller, corresponding to a bigger wavelength ? Is this a typo ?

Work Function= 2.50 * 10^-19 J/atom

This is because you didn't add the KE with the threshold value. You only did 2.5x^-19 =hv
v=3.8x10^14
If you add the KE, you should get the answer 6.8*10^14 Hz

KE= 1/2mv^2

Refer to the equation c=(lambda)(v), you can rewrite this as c/(lambda)=v or c/v=(lambda). You can see they are inversely related; when wavelength increases, the frequency decrease and vice versa.

Helium actually weights more because it is roughly 4g/mol whereas GarBreadium is 3.157g/mol. I made this mistake too, (you have to add the neutrons and protons) 2+2=4
