Recognizing standard states

Postby McKenna disc 1C » Mon Jan 22, 2018 6:08 pm


I'm not sure I'd be able to recognize what the standard state of a given element is. Is that something we'd be expected to be able to do? I know that carbon is graphite, for example, but aside from that, I'm not sure.

I would also like to know as well, though right now, I think we may be given a table on the information if a problem requires us to use this knowledge.

I'm sure the standard states of molecules not seen as often as those similar to H2 and O2 will be given to us. Otherwise, it wouldn't hurt to be able to recognize the common elements' standard states.
