Hello there,
Although there are oxygens on both sides of the equation, there are two on the left and three on the right. Therefore, you need to add one water molecule on the left for compensation.
HNO2 + H2O -> NO3-
Since you have three hydrogen atoms on the reactants' side, add three to the...
You're welcome.
Unfortunately, I still have not found a different answer. Is this textbook a recognised, leading one in chemistry? If not, then the answer key may be erroneous.
Hello there,
Unfortunately, I'm not an expert in the area of thermal physics. I have always interpreted Gibbs Free Energy as the amount of energy available to do work in a system.
Does that help?
Hello there,
I am unsure about how your solution addressed this question, but this is what I would do.
1) You need to understand this equation: ∆G = nFE0cell.
2) You can calculate ∆G for the entire reaction using tabulated values of ∆G for each reactant. That is, ∆G for the reaction = ∆G...
Hello there,
You are missing a key equation:
mc∆T = -mc∆T,
where ∆T = Tf - Ti.
I encourage you to learn this equation and then retry the problem. If you need any more help, please write back!
Hello there,
This can be considered as a "tricky" question. I did not arrive at the right answer on my first try.
You have to read the question carefully. Although you calculated the standard OXIDATION potential for Pd -> Pd2+ + 2e- correctly, you are asked for this half-reaction's standard...
Hello there,
I will start by writing the chemical equation:
Mg + Cu(SO4)2 -> Cu + Mg(SO4)2
b) For this part, you know that Mg is in excess. Therefore, you simply need to find the amount of Cu(SO4)2 in mols. When you have this, then you know that the excess amount of Mg will be anything > the...

Hello:
Hydrogen is not a metal; it is a gas at room temperature.
However, it has an unique chemical property. Like the alkali metals, it can lose its electron and just be a H+ proton (since it has no more electrons); or it can act like an halogen and gain an electron, to become H-.
Hope...

Does this exception occur often? If so, what would be the maximum number of valence electrons allowed for chlorine? 20?
Hello everyone:
I was looking at Wikipedia's page on chloric acid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chloric_acid) and was wondering if the Lewis diagram there is correct. I will not link directly to it as it has a high resolution.
It shows Cl with a lone pair of electrons having double bonds with...
