Patterns in the Electronic Configurations of the Elements

Describe the patterns in the electronic configurations of the elements. Each row across the periodic table is called a period and the elements gradually change properties from left to right. Can you explain this in terms of the electronic configurations? Each column of the periodic table is called a family. Elements in t

Candy Experiment - Valence Electrons

Lab Experiment: Interactive Valence Shell Electrons 1. You will need a bag of colored candies such as "Skittles" or "M&M" You should have at least 80 pieces of this candy. You will also need eighteen index cards. Nine sheets of notebook paper torn in half will work as well as index cards. 2. Separate the candies by color.

Is water replaced or

The question arises concerning the density of saltwater: is it because water molecules have moved out of the system, replaced by sodium and chlorine ions, which are heavier, or have the ions moved into the interstices, creating a greater number of particles in the solution? By the gas laws, a cubic meter of gas always maintain

Chlorine Gas Preparation

Chlorine gas can be prepared in the laboratory by the reaction of manganese dioxide with hydrochloric acid: MnO2(s) + 4HCl(aq) --> MnCl2(aq) + 2H2O(l) + Cl2(g) How much MnO2 should be added to excess HCl to obtain 275mL of chlorine gas at 5.0C and 650 mmHg?

Finding precipitate formed.

For AgCl, what will occur if 250ml of 1.5 A 10^-13 M of NaCl is mixed with 250mL of 2.0 A 10^-7 M of AgNO3? a. A precipitate would form because Ksp>P b. A precipitate would form because P>Ksp c. No precipitate would form because Ksp>P d. No precipitate would form because P>Ksp e. No precipitate would form because P=Ksp

Isomers

How many geometric isomers exist for FeCl4(CN)2(exponent 3 negative)?

Formation constant

The formation constant for Cu(NH3)4(exponent 2 positive) is 2x10(exponent 12). What is the ratio of Cu(NH3)4(exponent 2 positive) to Cu(exponent 2 positive) in 0.1M NH3?

Writing chemical formulas

Determining the products when given the reactants.

There are two beakers each with distilled water. One has trihydrogen borate + potassium hydroxide (H3BO3 + KOH) and the other has trihydrogen borate + sodium hydroxide (H3BO3 + NaOH). What are the products that are formed after the solutions are heated and placed in an ice water bath? Hint: There will be a precipitate.
