(Closed Book, 90 minutes, 150 points)
Version D Name: TA: SID: Section: ______ Identification Sticker Test-taking strategy: PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
Write your name and that of your TA on all 10 pages. This test consists of two parts:
multiple choice (answers to be circled and entered on the ScantronTM sheet) and short
answer. In order to maximize your score on the exam:
• Do the questions you know how to do first.
Then, go back and spend more time on the questions you find more challenging.
Budget your time carefully -- don't spend too much time on one problem.
Show all work for which you want credit and don't forget to include units.

page 7 of 10 TA:______________________________ Part 2: Short Answer Problems (78 pts total)
Instructions: Enter answers in the boxes where provided. Show all work for which you
wish to receive credit. Where explanations are required, only the first fifteen words will
be considered for your grade. 1.) (39pts) Acrylonitrile is an important building block for synthetic fiber. It can be
made by the reaction of propane with ammonia and oxygen, as follows:
2C3H6 (g) + 2NH3 (g) + 3O2 (g) → 2C3H3N (l) + 6H2O (l) a) (11 pts) What mass of Acrylonitrile is formed by the reaction of 1.0 mole of
propane and 2.0 moles of ammonia (NH3) in the presence of excess oxygen.
Propane (C3H6 ) is the limiting reagent.
(1 mol C3H6 ) (2 mol C3H3N)/(2 mol C3H6) = 1 mol C3H3N
MW(C3H3N) = 53 g/mol Mass Acrylonitrile:
53 g b) (6 pts) Acrylonitrile can be formed in the presence of ozone, O3 , rather than
molecular oxygen, O2. Balance the chemical equation for this reaction. 1 C3H6 (g) +1 NH3 (g) + 1 O3 (g) → 1 C3H3N (l) + 3 H2O (l) Name:_____________________

O d) (11 pts) What is the bond order of the oxygen-oxygen bond in i) oxygen (O2)
and ii) Ozone (O3). Explain your answer.
i) oxygen (O2)
Bond order 2 Explanation:
To obtain octets, on both “O” atoms, a double bond is
needed (no resonance possible). ii) ozone (O3)
Bond order 1.5 Explanation:
Bond order = (total # bonds between the O atoms) /
(# resonance structures) 2.) (39 pts) Sodium metal, Na has a work function equal to 4.3 x 10-19 joules. Name:_____________________
page 9 of 10 TA:______________________________ a) (10 pts) Calculate the lowest frequency and the corresponding wavelength of light
sufficient to eject a photoelectron from sodium metal? Ekin = hν - Φ
0 = hν - 4.3 x 10 Frequency
6.5 x 1014 Hz -19 ν = 6.5 x 1014 Hz
c = λν
(3 x 108 m/s)/ 6.5 x 1014 Hz = 460 nm Wavelength
460 nm b) (8 pts) Will red light eject an electron from sodium metal? Circle your answer
and explain. Circle one: YES NO DEPENDS Explanation:
The frequency of red light is too low to overcome the work function Name:_____________________
page 10 of 10 TA:______________________________ c) (10 pts) How many photoelectrons are ejected from sodium metal by light of
wavelength λ = 400 nm (1 nm = 10-9 m) that delivers a total energy of
2.23 x 10-18 J?
Ephoton = hc/λ
Ephoton = 4.97 x 10-19 J
Etotal = n x 4.97 x 10-19 J
n = number of photons # of photoelectrons 2.23 x 10-18 J / 4.97 x 10-19 J = 4.49 d) (11 pts) On the graph below, plot the kinetic energy of electrons ejected from
sodium metal as a function of light frequency and explain. Ekin ν
