Chem 216 Please do not open this examination until the TA's say you may
do so. Please check that there are 3 questions in your exam.
Problems 1 and 2 are on two pages each. Problem 3 is on a
single sheet. The TA's have been told not to answer any
questions during the examination period. If you finish the
examination at least 15 minutes before the end of the exam you
may turn the exam in. Otherwise please wait at your desk for
your exam to be picked up by a TA. Please note this is a Chem 216 exam. F: i Name: Day of the
