Problem Set 3 April 9, 2017 Answers are due at the beginning of class Friday April 13, 2017. Answer sets received after 8:00 am will not be graded. 1) Given the following standard reduction potentials which material is the easiest to reduce? Al 3+ + 3 e Al E° = – 1.66 V Cu + + e Cu E° = 0.52 V Fe 3+ + e Fe 2+ E° = 0.77 V 2H + + 2 e H 2 (g) E° = 0.00 V Hg 2+ + 2 e Hg (l) E° = 0.78 V Mg 2+ + 2 e Mg E° = – 2.37 V Mn 2+ + 2 e Mn E° = – 1.18 V Zn 2+ + 2 e Zn E° = – 0.76 V 2) The reduction potentials for cupric and cuprous ions are: Cu + + e Cu E 0 = 0.52 V Cu 2+ + 2e Cu E 0 = 0.34 V What would be the potential of a voltaic cell made from these two half reactions and assuming the ion concentrations are equal? 3) Carbon dioxide has n permanent dipole and yet it absorbs in the infrared. Explain briefly why this is so. 4) What kind of compound do you think this is the IR spectrum of? 5) The vibrational frequency of HBr is 2649.7 cm-1. What is the force constant of the HBr bond assuming the molecule behaves as a simple harmonic oscillator?

    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.
