### Chem Homework!

Now that we have a science hq section..... My prof. gave me lot's of chem work for since I am going to my high school.  Need someone to check them. Thank-you in advance.

1  The atomic masses in the periodic table are not integral numbers. For example, carbon is listed as 12.011 amu (atomic mass unit) instead of 12.000 amu. Why?(we were given a couple of options to select from)

Atomic masses listed in the periodic table are weighted averages of isotopic masses.

2  Screening by core electrons in atoms is    _____

more efficient than that by valence electrons

3   According to the Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory, if there are 5 pairs of electrons in the valence shell of an atom, they will be arranged in a(n) _____ geometry.

trigonal bipyramidal

4   What is the mass in grams of 10.0 million H2O molecules?

2.990 X 10^-16

5   Which of the following is a valid set of quantum numbers?

n=4, l=0, ml=0, ms=-1/2

6   Phenol red has an indicator pH range of 6.8 to 8.4. Its acid color is yellow and basic color is red. In 0.10 M NaOH, this indicator will exhibit what color? red

7   Determine the volume (in liters) occupied by 8.0 g oxygen at STP (MW of O2 = 32 g/mol)    5.6

8   What do you call gases that do not conform to the ideal gas laws?  real gases

9   Which of the following terms is used to describe the amount of heat present in a substance?
enthalpy

10   How many grams of phosphoric acid (98 g/mol) are in 175 mL of a 3.5 M solution of phosphoric acid?   60

I think 1, 4, 6, 7 & 9 are correct. The others are beyond my knowledge.

### Re: Chem Homework!

Agnishom, you know how in the Bohr model there is only 1 quantum # for the electron configuration? A model called Schrodinger's model let us see the electron distribution in 3d space. That of course needed 3 coordinates which are called quantum numbers. Principal, magnetic and angular. In this case, n=4, l=0, ml=0, ms=-1/2 is right as it is showing an electron in the fourth energy level of orbital s. Also, mind translating that German?

### Re: Chem Homework!

Even I got my chemistry homework..I have nearly done everything but I can't solve this two question...

The number of d-electrons in Fe2+ (Z = 26) is not equal to that of? and another one is:

The number of water molecules present in a drop of water (volume 0.0018 ml) at room temperature is?

can anyone help me in solving this two question..

### Re: Chem Homework!

hi

Which ones from the original post do you still need to be checked?

Oh   Just as I posted, you went off-line.  Let me explain for when you come back on.

My wife is a really excellent chemistry teacher and probably knows all those answers.  But (and other members may not want to read this) she thinks MIF is a waste of time and cannot understand why I keep logging in.  She thinks I should be out in the garden doing some jobs for her.  But, if I get the short list from you, I can probably ask her to look at them.    Especially as I'll have done those jobs by then

Hi Shivamcoder3013

1, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10 are correct (for 10 I am getting the "exact" answer to be 60.025).

2, 3 are wrong? And I rounded the 60. Also, thanks a lot.

I do not know about the others. 3 seems right, but I am not sure.

### Re: Chem Homework!

18ml of water consists of 6.022 *10^23 molecules.

So, that consists of around 6.022*10^19 molecules

### Re: Chem Homework!

I may have joined this discussion too late, but this is my way of doing this question:

The density of water is about 1 g per ml

So 0.0018 ml = 0.0018 g (appox.)

The molar mass of water is: 2x1 + 1x16 = 18 g per mol (approx.)

Then I divided by the molar mass of water to get the number of moles of water:

0.0018 / 18 = 1 x 10^-4 (mol H2O approx.)

Then multiply by Avogadros Constant: 6.022... x 10^23 (atoms or molecules per mol)

1 x 10^-4 x 6.022 x 10^23 = 6.02 x 10^19 (approx.)

Some of the figures I have used are approximate, but since the 0.0018 ml is only
supposed to be approximate I don't think much more accuracy was intended.

### Re: Chem Homework!

hi Shivamcoder3013

It looks like you have a full set of correct answers, well done.  (5) is the only one that worries me slightly; not because it is wrong; but because you haven't said what the alternative answers were.  But there should only be one correct answer shouldn't there?

I'm way out of my depth here so I don't think I could manage a follow up.

Bob, for number 5, we were given 4 options. If you want, I will specify why the others were wrong.

5. n=3, l=2, ml=-3, ms=+1/2 is invalid as -2, -1, 0, 1, 2 are the ml d (l=2).

n=1, l=0, ml=1, ms=+1/2 Also invalid as ml <> 1 if l = 0. That is because if l = 0, it means there is an s-orbital and thus ml = 0.

n=4, l=0, ml=0, ms=-1/2 This is right as it displays electrons in 4th energy level in the s orbital.

All of the above. This is obviously wrong. Also, thanks everyone for checking them.
