1 Problem Set #1 (Chem113A W’09, due Thu. 1/15/09 at 12:05pm in class, 7+1 questions, 100+5pts, max=100pts) Attendance record : I am [ ] present at or [ ] absent from this class meeting (see date and time above). Name: ________________________ Forming study groups is permissible, but you must construct your solutions independently. By writing down my name, I confirm that I strictly obey the academic ethic code when doing this problem set and my statement on attendance (above) is correct. Please write down the names of everyone who you worked with on this problem set in the space above. (i) Seven questions, one for each day. There is one extra credit question, but the total score is capped by 100 points. Studies show that the learning process can be more effective and enjoyable if one starts reviewing the material soon after class and does the exercises on a daily basis. (ii) It’s critical to write out algebraic details and arguments. If you use math formulas or literature values, please cite your source(s). (iii) To make grading accurate and efficient, please answer questions in orders, please circle your answers, and please include these 3 pages as the cover sheet for your solutions. Thank you. (iv) If you have difficulties/questions, please find resources and assistance ASAP. There are 11 resources for you (including 5 office hours per week)—please check Lecture Note #1. (v) Academic ethics need to be strictly obeyed. No exceptions! Please refer to the syllabus. Scope: I. The Big Picture 1. How to Excel in Chem113A W’09-- Syllabus 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
