    Function, f, with domain (-infinity, + infinity)

    I figured it was an even function after I had posted this. Thanks to both some_dude and uart for posting two different approaches to the problem. I understand this problem a lot better and have solved some similar now. Thanks again, Adam

    Function, f, with domain (-infinity, + infinity)

    I was working on the following problem from a textbook. The textbook has no answer. I have included my solution - I am not sure whether it is correct Any ideas and or solutions? (guidance) Question: Suppose that f is any function with domain (-infinity, +infinity) a) Does the function g...

    Vapor pressure, its decrease and subsequent lowering of boiling point

    This sort of logic represented by mathematical equations is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much. I have written some maths down for Clausius-Clapeyron but I am not sure it is correct. Can you explore Clausius-Clapeyron mathematically and I'll see if it matches with mine...

    Vapor pressure, its decrease and subsequent lowering of boiling point

    This answers the qualitative part of my question very well. I would be happy if you could show me some mathematics behind Clausius-Clapeyron and Gibbs free energy i.e a full mathematical description. Thanks, Adam

    Vapor pressure, its decrease and subsequent lowering of boiling point

    I gather the following: - A decrease in atmospheric pressure leads to a decrease in boiling point - Thermodynamics explains this using mathematics - A kinetic theory model can also be used to explain I need to know: - The science behind this occuring. Why does a lower atmospheric...

    Short existence of liquid water on Mars (explanation related to thin atmosphere)

    Thank you. It does allow me to picture what is going on. I also gather that this can be descibed by Thermodynamics, mathematically? If this is so could you show me how?

    Short existence of liquid water on Mars (explanation related to thin atmosphere)

    I now understand why the atmosphere is thin! I still don't understand why a lower pressure reduces boiling point?

    Short existence of liquid water on Mars (explanation related to thin atmosphere)

    I understand that liquid water cannot exists on Mars for extended periods of time because: a) The atmosphere is too thin b) Resulting in a lower boiling point water c) Which leads to sublimification of solid ice into gaseous vapour Quite specifically, I would like to understand the...

    Acid-Base Titrations - Soda Lime and Hydrochloric Acid

    It should be: 0.0133928571 Which when rounded to 3 sig fig is 0.0134 NB: See adjusted Calculation and answer

    Acid-Base Titrations - Soda Lime and Hydrochloric Acid

    Adding the two calculated volumes gives total volume of HCL required = 26.8 + 106.25 = 133.05cm3 or 133cm3 (to 3 sig fig0 Borek: Please confirm :)

    Acid-Base Titrations - Soda Lime and Hydrochloric Acid

    Continuing with the titration of CaO CaO + 2HCL >> CaCl2 + H2O number of moles = m/mr = 0.375/56 = 0.00669642857 From equation, number of moles (HCL) = 2*0.00669642857 = 0.013938571 Therefore: V = n/c = (0.0134/0.500)*1000 = 26.8cm3

    Acid-Base Titrations - Soda Lime and Hydrochloric Acid

    Since there 85% of NaOH, the mass of NaOH in the 2.5g mixture is: (85/100)*2.5 = 2.12500 Therefore the mass of CaO in the mixture is: 2.5 - 2.12500 = 0.375g The titration of NaOH: NaOH + HCL >> NaCl + H20 number of moles of NaOH = m/Mr = 2.12500/40 = 0.053125 mol From equation number of moles...

    Why do you love physics?

    From a young age I was always very curious about the universe. I had to absolutely no everything about some system - how it worked and how different components interacted. It game me the feeling of being in control of the universe - I like to be the master of the universe! Even now it's the...
