    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? [Broken] Thanks.

    Understanding Bonding

    When Carbon double bonds to another carbon, does one of each's electrons move like this? [Broken]

    Octet Rule

    Is this how you tell when to form double bonds when drawing lewis structures, such as with CO2?

    Understanding Lone Pairs & Orbitals

    So, trying to understand conceptually why Carbon can only have 4 bonds maximum, regardless of its formal change in a structure. My book says it's because it only has 4 orbitals, but I'm not quite sure why this is, and was wondering if someone could explain. My second question is regarding...

    A(n+1) = An + 1/(5^n) sequence

    So, couple sequence questions! Converge or Diverge? 1. A(n+1) = An + 1/(5^n) (recursive sequence) That should read a sub n plus one equals a sub n plus one over 5 to the n I believe it converges, but would like to be sure. 2. sigma from 1 to infinity of: (1+5/n)^n...

    Thermochemistry question

    I'm given: mass metal temp metal mass cool water temp water final temp (after insertion of metal) (note: this is in a styrofoam cup calorimeter) I need to find the amount of heat lost by the metal, qmetal. The only hint is: qmetal = - (qwater + qcalorimeter). Desperately tried...

    Heat of Combustion

    What's the formula for calculating this, given: grams, heat capacity of substance, and temperature change? How about heat combustion per kJ/Mol? Thanks
