Unformatted text preview: Chemistry 288 Final Exam Study Guide Spring 2005, Marohn GUIDELINES AND COVERAGE The final is cumulative. The final exam will cover all the lectures and homework. The book chapters covered are • Kittel and Kroemer, Chapters 1 – 3, and 5. • Chang, Chapters 7 and 8 • My class notes on electrostatics and Debye-H¨uckel theory. • Chang, Chapter 16.1 to 16.3 • Chang, Chapter 17 – except the sections on rota- tional and electron spin resonance spectroscopies • My class notes on fluorescence resonance energy transfer • Chang, Chapter 21 – the part of the chapter on diffusion The exam questions will include all that was covered in the homework. The exam will be weighted towards the different segments of the course in roughly the following way: Diffusion and Spectroscopy 40 % Prelim II material 30 % Prelim I material 30 % I may draw exam problems directly from the homeworks and from your first and second Preliminary Exams, so you should review those. COURSE GRADING SCHEME How much does the final count towards your final grade? A lot! I will grade you under both of the follow- ing schemes, and use whichever grade comes out higher. I will set the mean for the class as a B (close to B + ). Scheme 1: Final 40 % Prelim II 20 % Prelim I 20 % Homework 20 % Scheme 2: Final 50 % Prelim II 20 % Prelim I 20 % Homework 10 % A NOTE ON WHAT TO MEMORIZE At the end of this study guide I give you the same set of formulas and physical constants that you will get for the final exam. Take careful note of what equations will be provided, and what equations will not be provided. What you needed to memorize for Preliminary Exams I and II you will still need to have memorize for the final. I will point out things to know (and not know) of the new materials in detail below. The main things you should be memorizing are • The formulas we derived from statistical mechanics • From electrostatics, you should memorize the po- tential (and be able to derive the force) between two charges. You should memorize the electric field from a point charge. The other force laws I will give you. • E = hν = ¯ hω = hc/λ = hc ˜ ν As you can see, things you will be provided include • Physical constants • Most of the mathematical series and other “tricks” • The Debye-H¨uckel theory formulas • Most of the spectroscopy formulas NEW MATERIAL DIFFUSION Chang 21.4 Class Notes • Be able to sketch how a concentration profile will evolve in time as ions diffuse. You will not be re- quired to solve any differential equations involving Fick’s Laws of diffusion. • You should know that Brownian motion arises from collisions with molecules. You should be able to ex- plain, qualitatively, the difference between diffusion in a gas versus a liquid....
