Name: _________________________ Date: Friday, April 18, 2008 Chem 6B, Winter 2008 TA: Angie Koo Hess’ Law Practice Problem This problem was originally intended to be the first question on the quiz, but it was too difficult for the purposes of a quiz. However, I strongly suggest that you try this problem and understand it, as it is a good indicator of your FULL understanding of this type of problem with some twists to it. Possibly relevant constants: 8.314 J/mol*K; 0.08206 L*atm/K*mol
