    General Solutions to a Linear System

    According to this, http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/5/8/2/582b41cd88284564c46e711cbbca55fa.png http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_of_linear_equations#Homogeneous_systems A general solution to some linear system is a particular solution (P) + a homogeneous solution (H) My question: is...

    SP Carbon Orbitals

    It seems like they are both sp2 to to me :O

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    So my 2nd structure isn't valid because that would mean the carbon would have 5 bonds? (another carbon, the double and 2 hydrogens) ? If that's right it seems the hydrogen is still there?

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    So why is the 2nd step of my resonance structure invalid, then?

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    So even though we remove a H, for purposes of bonds we pretend it is still there? Is what I said above correct? Thanks

    SP Carbon Orbitals

    When the hydrogens/protons are removed, leaving C-, can someone please tell me what and why the SP orbitals of these two carbons are? http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/5333/40529044.jpg [Broken] Thanks.

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    Thanks. My question was because of this: I was wondering if you made the C have a negative formal charge, if that was the same thing as pulling off a hydrogen/proton. But I guess the negative charge is because of another electron around the atom, not the loss of a hydrogen, which would mean...

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    I know it doesn't show all the places, I'm asking if that is ONE of them. I don't think it is, since wouldn't that mean the carbon would have 5 bonds? (another carbon, the double and 2 hydrogens) ?

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    It's a way of showing more than one lewis structure where they are sort of moving in and out of each

    What's the sp orbital of this carbon?

    Domains = things the atom is bonded to where "things" are: single pairs, lone pairs, double bonds Is that what you meant? So the carbon is sp2 right?

    What's the sp orbital of this carbon?

    Never learned that

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    Not to be rude, but I would love it if you could answer my question even briefly. I know what resonance is, I can assure you of that. :)

    Valid Resonance Structure?

    is mine just not valid because it violates the octet rule since there are H's involved as well?

    What's the sp orbital of this carbon?

    It is possible, it's from my book. Since it has a double bond, it's sp2 i think? I just don't know if the - formal charge affects that.

    What's the sp orbital of this carbon?

    Meant to upload this one, sorry. is it sp2? sp3?... http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/5062/92513846.jpg [Broken]
