Conversions
One of the aims of chemistry is to describe changes—to tell what changed, how it changed, and what it changed into. Another aim of chemistry is to look at matter and its changes and to ask questions such as how much, how big, how hot, how many, how hard, and how long did it take. For example, chemistry asks the following: • • • • • • • How much energy is needed to start a reaction? How much will the volume of a gas increase if you heat it? How long will a reaction take? How much can a reaction produce? How much of the reactant is needed to produce a required amount of product? How much energy does a reaction release? How high will the temperature of the solution get as a reaction occurs? To answer these questions, chemists must make measurements. Measurements in science can never be treated as just numbers; they must always involve both a number and a unit. When you use measurements to calculate any quantity, the unit must always accompany the number in the calculation. Sometimes the unit given is not the most appropriate unit for the situation or calculation. In this case, a conversion can change the impractical unit into a more useful one. For instance, you would not want to measure the distance from New York City to San Francisco in inches. A simple conversion can transform the number of inches between the two cities to the much more practical number of miles.

Significant Figures
A lever balance used to weigh a truckload of stone may be accurate to the nearest 100 kg, giving a reading of 15 200 kg, for instance. The measurement should be written in such a way that a person looking at it will understand that it represents the mass of the truck to the nearest 100 kg, that is, that the mass is somewhere between 15 100 kg and 15 300 kg. Some laboratory balances are sensitive to differences of 0.001 g. Suppose you use such a balance to weigh 0.206 g of aluminum foil. A person looking at your data table should be able to see that the measurement was made on a balance that measures mass to the nearest 0.001 g. You should not state the measurement from the laboratory balance as 0.2060 g instead of 0.206 g because the balance was not sensitive enough to measure 0.0001 g. To convey the accuracy of measurements, all people working in science use significant figures. A significant figure is a digit that represents an actual measurement. The mass of the truck was stated as 15 200 kg. The 1, 5, and 2 are significant figures because the balance was able to measure tenthousands, thousands, and hundreds of kilograms. The truck balance was not sensitive enough to measure tens of kilograms or single kilograms. Therefore, the two zeros are not significant and the measurement has three significant figures. The mass of the foil was correctly stated as 0.206 g. There are three decimal places in this measurement that are known with some certainty. Therefore, this measurement has three significant figures. Had the mass been stated as 0.2060 g, a fourth significant figure would have been incorrectly implied.
Rules for Determining Significant Figures A. All digits that are not zeros are significant.
All are nonzero digits. 222 3 2 5 mL of ethanol The measurement has three significant figures. All are nonzero digits. 2222 1.3 2 5 g of zinc The measurement has four significant figures. B.

significant figures. Zeros between nonzero digits and significant zeros are also significant. This is a restatement of Rule 1.

Zeros at the end of a number but to the left of a decimal may or
may not be significant. If such a zero has been measured or is the first estimated digit, it is significant. On the other hand, if the zero has not been measured or estimated but is just a place holder, it is not significant. A decimal placed after the zeros indicates that they are significant.

You first measure the volume in a graduated cylinder that is accurate to the nearest 0.1 mL. You then determine the mass of the solution on a balance that can measure mass to the nearest 0.001 g. You have read each measuring device as accurately as you can, and you record the following data:

You can determine density on your calculator and get the following result: D m V 11.079 g 12.7 mL 0.872 362 204 g/mL Although the numbers divide out to give the result shown, it is not correct to say that this quantity is the density of the solution. Remember that you are dealing with measurements, not just numbers. Consider the fact that you measured the mass of the solution with a balance that gave a reading with five significant figures: 11.079 g. In addition, you measured the volume of the solution with a graduated cylinder that was readable only to three significant figures: 12.7 mL. It seems odd to claim that you now know the density with an accuracy of nine significant figures. You can calculate the density—or any measurement—only as accurately as the least accurate measurement that was used in the calculation. In this case the least accurate measurement was the volume because the measuring device you used was capable of giving you a measurement with only three significant figures. Therefore, you can state the density to only three significant figures. Rules for Calculating with Measured Quantities
Operation Multiplication and division Rule • Round off the calculated result to the same number of significant figures as the measurement having the fewest significant figures. • Round off the calculated result to the same number of decimal places as the measurement with the fewest decimal places. If there is no decimal point, round the result back to the digit that is in the same position as the leftmost uncertain digit in the quantities being added or subtracted. Addition and subtraction In the example given above, you must round off your calculator reading to a value that contains three significant figures. In this case, you would say: D m V 11.079 g 12.7 mL 0.872 362 204 g/mL 0.872 g/mL Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

Scientific Notation
People who work in scientific fields often have to use very large and very small numbers. Look at some examples in the following table:
Measurement Density of air at 27°C and 1 atm pressure Radius of a calcium atom One lightyear The mass of a neutron Value 0.001 61 g/cm3 0.000 000 000 197 m 9 460 000 000 000 km 0.000 000 000 000 000 000 000 001 675 g You can see that measurements such as these would be awkward to write out repeatedly. Also, calculating with very long numbers is likely to lead to errors because it’s so easy to miscount zeros and decimal places. To make these numbers easier to handle, scientists express them in a form known as scientific notation, which uses powers of 10 to reduce the number of zeros to a minimum. Look at a simple example of the way that scientific notation works. Following are some powers of 10 and their decimal equivalents. 10 10 10 10
0 1 2 2 1 000.01 000.1 001 010 100 10 Suppose we rewrite the values in the table using scientific notation. The numbers become much less cumbersome.

Four Steps for Solving Quantitative Problems
Maybe you have noticed that the sample problems in the first three chapters of this book are solved in a fourstep process. The steps in the process are as follows. 1. ANALYZE 2. PLAN 3. COMPUTE 4. EVALUATE Now it’s time to examine each step to learn how this process can help you solve morecomplex problems, like those you will encounter in your chemistry course. 1. ANALYZE In this first step, you should read the problem carefully and then reread it. You must determine what specific information and data you are given in the problem and what you need to find. Try to visualize the situation the problem describes. Look closely at the words in the problem statement for clues to understanding the problem. Are you working with elements, compounds, or mixtures? Are they solids, liquids, or gases? What change is taking place? Is it a chemical change? What are the reactants? What are the products? It is always a good idea to collect and organize all of your information in a table, where you can see it at a glance. Include the things you want to find in the table, too. Be sure to include units with both the data and the quantities you must find. Scanning the quantities and their units will often provide clues about how to set up the problem. Remember, you may be given information not needed to solve the problem. You must analyze the data to determine what is useful and what is not. 2. PLAN In the planning step, you develop a method to solve the problem. Always keep in mind what you want to find and its units. Chances are good that an approach that gives an answer with the correct units is the correct one to use. In any case, a setup that gives an answer with the wrong units is certain to be wrong. You may find it helpful to diagram your solution method. This process helps you organize your thoughts. As you work out your problemsolving method, write down a trial calculation without numbers but with units. When you complete your setup, see if the trial calculation will give you a quantity with the correct units. As stated above, if the setup gives the needed units, it is probably correct.

During this planning process you may discover that you need more information, such as atomic masses from the periodic table, the boiling point of alcohol, or the density of tin. You will need to look up such information in the appropriate tables. 3. COMPUTE In this step, you follow your plan, set up a calculation using the data you have assembled, and compute the result. It is a good strategy to write out and check your calculation setup before you start working with your calculator. First reconfirm that the calculation will give a result with the correct units. Go through your calculation and lightly strike through the units that cancel. Be sure the remaining units are those that you want in your answer. Whenever possible, use your calculator in a way that lets you complete the entire problem without writing down numbers and then reentering them. 4. EVALUATE Everyone makes errors, but good problem solvers always develop strategies to check their work. Confidence in your problemsolving ability will come from knowing how to determine on your own whether your answers are correct. One evaluation strategy is to estimate the numerical value of the answer. In simple problems, you can probably do this in your head. With calculations having several terms, round off each numerical value to the nearest simple value, and then write and compute the estimation. Suppose you had to make the following calculation. 28.8 g 6.30 cm 18.9 cm 30 6 20 30 120 1 4 ? The numerical calculation can be estimated as follows. 0.25 Once you have done the actual computation, compare your result with the estimate. In this case, the calculation gives 0.242 g/cm2, which is close to the estimated result. Therefore, it is likely that you made no mistakes in the calculation. Next, check that your answer is expressed to the correct number of significant figures. Look at the data values you used in the calculation. Usually, significant figures will be limited by the measurement that has the fewest significant figures. Finally, ask yourself the simple question, does this answer make sense based on what you know? If you are calculating the circumference of Earth, an answer of 50 km is obviously much too small. If you are calculating the density of air, a value of 340 g/cm3 is much too large because air density is usually less than 1 g/cm3. You will detect many errors by asking if the answer makes sense.

Next, bring together in a table everything you might need in the problem. Include what you want to find in the table. The fact that the solution is 10.0% sodium hydroxide is unimportant in the solution of this problem. This piece of data need not appear in your table. Notice that the problem asks you for a volume in liters and that density is given in grams per milliliter. You will need a factor to convert between these units. Therefore, include in the table any relationships between units that will be helpful.

Mole Concept
Suppose you want to carry out a reaction that requires combining one atom of iron with one atom of sulfur. How much iron should you use? How much sulfur? When you look around the lab, there is no device that can count numbers of atoms. Besides, the merest speck (0.001 g) of iron contains over a billion billion atoms. The same is true of sulfur. Fortunately, you do have a way to relate mass and numbers of atoms. One iron atom has a mass of 55.847 amu, and 55.847 g of iron contains 6.022 137 1023 atoms of iron. Likewise, 32.066 g of sulfur contains 6.022 137 1023 atoms of sulfur. Knowing this, you can measure out 55.847 g of iron and 32.066 g of sulfur and be pretty certain that you have the same number of atoms of each. The number 6.022 137 1023 is called Avogadro’s number. For most purposes it is rounded off to 6.022 1023. Because this is an awkward number to write over and over again, chemists refer to it as a mole (abbreviated mol). 6.022 1023 objects is called a mole, just as you call 12 objects a dozen. Look again at how these quantities are related. 55.847 g of iron 32.066 g of sulfur 6.022 6.022 1023 iron atoms 1023 sulfur atoms 1 mol of iron 1 mol of sulfur General Plan for Converting Mass, Amount, and Numbers of Particles 1 Mass of substance Convert using the molar mass of the substance. 2 Amount of substance in moles 3

Percentage Composition
Suppose you are working in an industrial laboratory. Your supervisor gives you a bottle containing a white crystalline compound and asks you to determine its identity. Several unlabeled drums of this substance have been discovered in a warehouse, and no one knows what it is. You take it into the laboratory and carry out an analysis, which shows that the compound is composed of the elements sodium, carbon, and oxygen. Immediately, you think of the compound sodium carbonate, Na2CO3 , a very common substance found in most laboratories and used in many industrial processes. Before you report your conclusion to your boss, you decide to check a reference book to see if there are any other compounds that contain only the elements sodium, carbon, and oxygen. You discover that there is another compound, sodium oxalate, which has the formula Na2C2O4 . When you read about this compound, you find that it is highly poisonous and can cause serious illness and even death. Mistaking sodium carbonate for sodium oxalate could have very serious consequences. What can you do to determine the identity of your sample? Is it the common industrial substance or the dangerous poison? Fortunately, you can determine not only which elements are in the compound, but also how much of each element is present. As you have learned, every compound has a definite composition. Every water molecule is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, no matter where the water came from. A formula unit of sodium chloride is composed of one sodium atom and one chlorine atom, no matter whether the salt came from a mine or was obtained by evaporating sea water. Likewise, sodium carbonate always has two sodium atoms, one carbon atom, and three oxygen atoms per formula unit, giving it the formula Na2CO3 ; and a formula unit of sodium oxalate always contains two sodium atoms, two carbon atoms, and four oxygen atoms, giving it the formula Na2C2O4 . Because each atom has a definite mass, each compound will have a distinct composition by mass. This composition is usually expressed as the percentage composition of the compound — the percentage by mass of each element in a compound. To identify a compound, you can compare the percentage composition obtained by laboratory analysis with a calculated percentage composition of each possible compound.

Many compounds, especially ionic compounds, are produced and purified by crystallizing them from water solutions. When this happens, some compounds incorporate water molecules into their crystal structure. These crystalline compounds are called hydrates because they include water molecules. The number of water molecules per formula unit is specific for each type of crystal. When you have to measure a certain quantity of the compound, it is important to know how much the water molecules contribute to the mass. You may have seen blue crystals of copper(II) sulfate in the laboratory. When this compound is crystallized from water solution, the crystals include five water molecules for each formula unit of CuSO4 . The true name of the substance is copper(II) sulfate pentahydrate, and its formula is written correctly as CuSO4 5H2O. Notice that the five water molecules are written separately. They are preceded by a dot, which means they are attached to the copper sulfate molecule. On a molar basis, a mole of CuSO4 5H2O contains 5 mol of water per mole of CuSO4 5H2O. The water molecules contribute to the total mass of CuSO4 5H2O. When you determine the percentage water in a hydrate, the water molecules are treated separately, as if they were another element.

Empirical Formulas
Suppose you analyze an unknown compound that is a white powder and find that it is composed of 36.5% sodium, 38.1% oxygen, and 25.4% sulfur. You can use those percentages to determine the mole ratios among sodium, sulfur, and oxygen and write a formula for the compound. To begin, the mass percentages of each element can be interpreted as “grams of element per 100 grams of compound.” To make things simpler, you can assume you have a 100 g sample of the unknown compound. The unknown compound contains 36.5% sodium by mass. Therefore 100.0 g of the compound would contain 36.5 g of sodium. You already know how to convert mass of a substance into number of moles, so you can calculate the number of moles of sodium in 36.5 g. After you find the number of moles of each element, you can look for a simple ratio among the elements and use this ratio of elements to write a formula for the compound. The chemical formula obtained from the mass percentages is in the simplest form for that compound. The mole ratios for each element, which you determined from the analytical data given, are reduced to the smallest whole numbers. This simplest formula is also called the empirical formula. The actual formula for the compound could be a multiple of the empirical formula. For instance, suppose you analyze a compound and find that it is composed of 40.0% carbon, 6.7% hydrogen, and 53.3% oxygen. If you determine the formula for this compound based only on the analytical data, you will determine the formula to be CH2O. There are, however, other possibilities for the formula. It could be C2H4O2 and still have the same percentage composition. In fact, it could be any multiple of CH2O. It is possible to convert from the empirical formula to the actual chemical formula for the compound as long as the molar mass of the compound is known. Look again at the CH2O example. If the true compound were CH2O, it would have a molar mass of 30.03 g/mol. If you do more tests on the unknown compound and find that its molar mass is 60.06, you know that CH2O cannot be its true identity. The molar mass 60.06 is twice the molar mass of CH2O. Therefore, you know that the true chemical formula must be twice the empirical formula, (CH2O) 2, or C2H4O2. Any correct molecular formula can be determined from an empirical formula and a molar mass in this same way. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

Stoichiometry
So far in your chemistry course, you have learned that chemists count quantities of elements and compounds in terms of moles and that they relate moles of a substance to mass by using the molar mass. In addition, you have learned to write chemical equations so that they represent the rearrangements of atoms that take place during chemical reactions, and you have learned to balance these equations. In this chapter you will be able to put these separate skills together to accomplish one of the most important tasks of chemistry—using chemical equations to make predictions about the quantities of substances that react or are given off as products and relating those quantities to one another. This process of relating quantities of reactants and products in a chemical reaction to one another is called stoichiometry. First, look at an analogy. Suppose you need to make several sandwiches to take on a picnic with friends. You decide to make turkeyandcheese sandwiches using the following “equation:” 2 bread slices 2 turkey slices 1 lettuce leaf
1 cheese slice → 1 turkeyandcheese sandwich This equation shows that you need those ingredients in a ratio of 2 : 2 : 1 : 1, respectively. You can use this equation to predict that you would need 30 turkey slices to make 15 sandwiches or 6 cheese slices to go with 12 turkey slices. Zinc reacts with oxygen according to the following balanced chemical equation: 2Zn O2 → 2ZnO Like the sandwich recipe, this equation can be viewed as a “recipe” for zinc oxide. It tells you that reacting two zinc atoms with a molecule of oxygen will produce two formula units of zinc oxide. Can you predict how many zinc oxide units could be formed from 500 zinc atoms? Could you determine how many moles of oxygen molecules it would take to react with 4 mol of zinc atoms? What if you had 22 g of zinc and wanted to know how many grams of ZnO could be made from it? Keep in mind that the chemical equation relates amounts, not masses, of products and reactants. The problems in this chapter will show you how to solve problems of this kind.

At the beginning of Chapter 8, a comparison was made between solving stoichiometry problems and making turkey sandwiches. Look at the sandwich recipe once more: 2 bread slices 2 turkey slices 1 lettuce leaf 1 cheese slice → 1 turkeyandcheese sandwich If you have 24 slices of turkey, you can make 12 sandwiches at 2 slices per sandwich if you have enough of all the other ingredients. If, however, you have only 16 slices of bread, you can make only 8 sandwiches, even though you may an ample supply of the other ingredients. The bread is the limiting ingredient that prevents you from making more than 8 sandwiches. The same idea applies to chemical reactions. Look at a reaction used to generate hydrogen gas in the laboratory: Zn(s) H2SO4(aq) → ZnSO4(aq) H2( g) The balanced equation tells you that 1 mol Zn reacts with 1 mol H2SO4 to produce 1 mol ZnSO2 and 1 mol H2 . Suppose you have 1 mol Zn and 5 mol H2SO4 . What will happen, and what will you get? Only 1 mol of H2SO4 will react and only 1 mol of each of the products will be produced because only 1 mol Zn is available to react. In this situation, zinc is the limiting reactant. When it is used up the reaction stops even though more H2SO4 is available. It is difficult to directly observe molar amounts of reactants as they are used up. It is much easier to determine when a certain mass of a reactant has been completely used. Use molar masses to restate the equation in terms of mass, as follows: 65.39 g Zn 98.09 g H2SO4 → 161.46 g ZnSO4 2.02 g H2 This version of the equation tells you that zinc and sulfuric acid will always react in a mass ratio of 65.39 g of Zn : 98.09 g of H2SO4 or 0.667 g of Zn : 1.000 g of H2SO4 . If you have 65.39 g of Zn but only 87.55 g of H2SO4 , you will not be able to make 2.02 g of hydrogen. Sulfuric acid will be the limiting reactant, preventing the zinc from reacting completely. Suppose you place 20 g of zinc and 100 g of sulfuric acid into a flask. Which would be used up first? In other words, is the limiting reactant zinc or sulfuric acid? How much of each product will be produced? The sample problems in this chapter will show you how to answer these questions. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

Percentage Yield
Although we can write perfectly balanced equations to represent perfect reactions, the reactions themselves are often not perfect. A reaction does not always produce the quantity of products that the balanced equation seems to guarantee. This happens not because the equation is wrong but because reactions in the real world seldom produce perfect results. As an example of an imperfect reaction, look again at the equation that shows the industrial production of ammonia. N2( g) 3H2( g) → 2NH3( g) In the manufacture of ammonia, it is nearly impossible to produce 2 mol (34.08 g) of NH3 from the simple reaction of 1 mol (28.02 g) of N2 and 3 mol (6.06 g) of H2 because some ammonia molecules begin breaking down into N2 and H2 molecules as soon as they are formed. There are several reasons that realworld reactions do not produce products at a yield of 100%. Some are simple mechanical reasons, such as: • Reactants or products leak out, especially when they are gases. • The reactants are not 100% pure. • Some product is lost when it is purified.
There are also many chemical reasons, including: • The products decompose back into reactants (as with the ammonia process). • The products react to form different substances. • Some of the reactants react in ways other than the one shown in the equation. •
These are called side reactions. The reaction occurs very slowly. This is especially true of reactions involving organic substances. Chemists are very concerned with the yields of reactions because they must find ways to carry out reactions economically and on a large scale. If the yield of a reaction is too small, the products may not be competitive in the marketplace. If a reaction has only a 50% yield, it produces only 50% of the amount of product that it theoretically should.

Thermochemistry
Thermochemistry deals with the changes in energy that accompany a chemical reaction. Energy is measured in a quantity called enthalpy, represented as H. The change in energy that accompanies a chemical reaction is represented as H. Hess’s law provides a method for calculating the H of a reaction from tabulated data. This law states that if two or more chemical equations are added, the H of the individual equations may also be added to find the H of the final equation. As an example of how this law operates, look at the three reactions below. (1) (2) (3) 2H2( g) O2( g) → 2H2O(l) 2H2O2(l) → 2H2( g) 2O2( g) 2H2O2(l) → 2H2O(l) O2( g) H H H 571.6 kJ/mol 375.6 kJ/mol ? kJ/mol When adding equations 1 and 2, the 2 mol of H2( g) will cancel each other out, while only 1 mol of O2( g) will cancel. 2H2( g) O2( g) 3 2H2O(l)
1 2H2O2(l) 3 2H2( g) 2H2O2(l) → 2H2O(l) 2O2( g) O2( g ) Combining what is left yields the following equation. Notice that this is the same equation as the third equation shown above. Adding the two H values for the reactions 1 and 2 gives the H value for reaction 3. Using Hess’s law to calculate the enthalpy of this reaction, the following answer is obtained. 571.6 kJ/mol 375.6 kJ/mol 196.0 kJ/mol Thus, the H value for the reaction is 196.0 kJ/mol. Equation 1 represents the formation of water from its elemental components. If equation 2 were written in reverse, it would represent the formation of hydrogen peroxide from its elemental components. Therefore, adding equations 1 and 2 is the equivalent of subtracting the equation for the formation of the reactants of equation 3 from the equation for the formation of the products of equation 3. 2H2( g) O2( g) → 2H2O(l) [2H2( g) 2O2( g) → 2H2O2(l)] 2H2O2(l) → 2H2O(l) Hreaction sum of H 0products f O2( g) The enthalpy of the final reaction can be rewritten using the following equation. sum of H 0reactants f The equation states that the enthalpy change of a reaction is equal to the sum of the enthalpies of formation of the products minus the sum of the enthalpies of formation of the reactants. This allows Hess’s law to be extended to state that the Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. Holt ChemFile: ProblemSolving Workbook 134 Thermochemistry Back Print

enthalpy change of any reaction can be calculated by looking up the standard molar enthalpy of formation, H 0 , of each substance involved. Some common f enthalpies of formation may be found in Table 1. The enthalpy change, however, does not account for all of the energy change of a reaction. Changes in the disorder (entropy) of a system can add to or detract from the energy involved in the enthalpy change. This amount of energy is given by the expression T S, where T is the Kelvin temperature and S is the change in entropy during the reaction. A large increase in entropy, such as when a gas is produced from a reaction of liquids or solids, can contribute significantly to the overall energy change. The total amount of energy available from a reaction is called Gibbs energy and is denoted by G. Gibbs energy is given by the following equation.

Gas Laws
Chemists found that there were relationships among temperature, volume, pressure, and quantity of a gas that could be described mathematically. This chapter deals with Boyle’s law, Charles’s law, GayLussac’s law, the combined gas law, and Dalton’s law of partial pressures. These laws have one condition in common. They all assume that the molar amount of gas does not change. In other words, these laws work correctly only when no additional gas enters a system and when no gas leaks out of it. Remember also that a law describes a fact of nature. Gases do not “obey” laws. The law does not dictate the behavior of the gas. Rather, each gas law describes a certain behavior of gas that occurs if conditions are right. BOYLE’S LAW Robert Boyle, a British chemist who lived from 1627 to 1691 formulated the first gas law, now known as Boyle’s law. This law describes the relationship between the pressure and volume of a sample of gas confined in a container. Boyle found that gases compress, much like a spring, when the pressure on the gas is increased. He also found that they “spring back” when the pressure is lowered. By “springing back” he meant that the volume increases when pressure is lowered. It’s important to note that Boyle’s law is true only if the temperature of the gas does not change and no additional gas is added to the container or leaks out of the container. Boyle’s law states that the volume and pressure of a sample of gas are inversely proportional to each other at constant temperature. This statement can be expressed as follows.
Proportionality symbol. It means “is proportional to.” Proportionality constant V 1 P and PV k or V k 1 P According to Boyle’s law, when the pressure on a gas is increased, the volume of the gas decreases. For example, if the pressure is doubled, the volume decreases by half. If the volume quadruples, the pressure decreases to onefourth of its original value. The expression PV k means that the product of the pressure and volume of any sample of gas is a constant, k. If this is true, then P V under one set of conditions is equal to P V for the same sample of gas under a second set of conditions, as long as the temperature remains constant.

You know that most matter expands as its temperature rises. Gases are no different. When Benjamin Thomson and Lord Kelvin proposed an absolute temperature scale in 1848, it was possible to set up the mathematical expression of Charles’s law.

Charles’s law states that the volume of a sample of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature when pressure remains constant. Charles’s law can be expressed as follows. V T and V T k, or V kT According to Charles’s law, when the temperature of a sample of gas increases, the volume of the gas increases by the same factor. Therefore, doubling the Kelvin temperature of a gas will double its volume. Reducing the Kelvin temperature by 25% will reduce the volume by 25%. The expression V/T k means that the result of volume divided by temperature is a constant, k, for any sample of gas. If this is true, then V/T under one set of conditions is equal to V/T for the same sample of gas under another set of conditions, as long as the pressure remains constant.

Do not expose to temperatures greater than 140°F! Warnings such as this appear because the pressure of a confined gas increases with increasing temperature. If the temperature of the can increases enough, the can will explode because of the pressure that builds up inside of it. The relationship between the pressure and temperature of a gas is described by GayLussac’s law. GayLussac’s law states that the pressure of a sample of gas is directly proportional to the absolute temperature when volume remains constant. GayLussac’s law can be expressed as follows. P T and P T k, or P kT According to GayLussac’s law, when the temperature of a sample of gas increases, the pressure of the gas increases by the same factor. Therefore, doubling the temperature of a gas will double its pressure. Reducing the temperature of a gas to 75% of its original value will also reduce the pressure to 75% of its original value. The expression P/T k means that the result of pressure divided by temperature is a constant, k, for any sample of gas. If this is true, then P/T under one set of conditions is equal to P/T for the same sample of gas under another set of conditions, as long as the volume remains constant.

DALTON’S LAW OF PARTIAL PRESSURES Air is a mixture of approximately 78% N2 , 20% O2 , 1% Ar, and 1% other gases by volume, so at any barometric pressure 78% of that pressure is exerted by nitrogen, 20% by oxygen, and so on. This phenomenon is described by Dalton’s law of partial pressures, which says that the total pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the component gases. It can be stated mathematically as follows. PTotal PGas 1 PGas 2 PGas 3 PGas 4 … A common method of collecting gas samples in the laboratory is to bubble the gas into a bottle filled with water and allow it to displace the water. When this technique is used, however, the gas collected in the bottle contains a small but significant amount of water vapor. As a result, the pressure of the gas that has displaced the liquid water is the sum of the pressure of the gas plus the vapor pressure of water at that temperature. The vapor pressures of water at various temperatures are given in Table 1 below. TABLE 1 VAPOR PRESSURE OF WATER

The Ideal Gas Law
In 1811, the Italian chemist Amedeo Avogadro proposed the principle that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules. He determined that at standard temperature and pressure, one mole of gas occupies 22.414 10 L (usually rounded to 22.4 L). At this point, if you know the number of moles of a gas, you can use the molar volume of 22.4 L/mol to calculate the volume that amount of gas would occupy at STP. Then you could use the combined gas law to determine the volume of the gas under any other set of conditions. However, a much simpler way to accomplish the same task is by using the ideal gas law. The ideal gas law is a mathematical relationship that has the conditions of standard temperature (273 K) and pressure (1 atm or 101.3 kPa) plus the molar gas volume (22.4 L/mol) already combined into a single constant. The following equation is the mathematical statement of the ideal gas law. PV in which P V n T R the pressure of a sample of gas the volume of a sample of gas the number of moles of gas present the Kelvin temperature of the gas the ideal gas constant, which combines standard conditions and molar volume into a single constant nRT The value of the ideal gas constant, R, depends on the units of P and V being used in the equation. Temperature is always in kelvins and amount of gas is always in moles. The most common values used for R are shown below.

APPLICATIONS OF THE IDEAL GAS LAW You have seen that you can use the ideal gas law to calculate the moles of gas, n, in a sample when you know the pressure, volume, and temperature of the sample. When you know the amount and identity of the substance, you can use its molar mass to calculate its mass. You did this when you learned how to convert between mass and moles. The relationship is expressed as follows.
Mass in grams n
Amount in moles m M
Molar mass in grams per mole If you substitute the expression m/M for n in the idealgaslaw equation, you get the following equation. PV m RT M This version of the ideal gas law can be solved for any of the five variables P, V, m, M, or T. It is especially useful in determining the molecular mass of a substance. This equation can also be related to the density of a gas. Density is mass per unit volume, as shown in the following equation. D Solve for m: m DV DV RT M PM RT Then, substitute DV for m in the gas law equation: PV m V The two V terms cancel and the equation is rearranged to give: PM DRT or D This equation can be used to compute the density of a gas under any conditions of temperature and pressure. It can also be used to calculate the molar mass of an unknown gas if its density is known. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

Stoichiometry of Gases
Now that you have worked with relationships among moles, mass, and volumes of gases, you can easily put these to work in stoichiometry calculations. Many reactions have gaseous reactants, gaseous products, or both. Reactants and products that are not gases are usually measured in grams or kilograms. As you know, you must convert these masses to amounts in moles before you can relate the quantities by using a balanced chemical equation. Gaseous products and reactants can be related to solid or liquid products and reactants by using the mole ratio, just as solids and liquids are related to each other. Reactants and products that are gases are usually measured in liters. If the gas is measured at STP, you will need only Avogadro’s law to relate the volume and amount of a gas. One mole of any gas at STP occupies 22.4 L. If the gas is not at STP, you will need to use the ideal gas law to determine the number of moles. Once volume has been converted to amount in moles you can use the mole ratios of products and reactants to solve stoichiometry problems involving multiple phases of products and reactants. n PV RT If the problem which you are trying to solve involves only gases, there is a simpler way of dealing with the stoichiometric amounts. Look again at the expression for the ideal gas law above; the molar amount of a gas is directly related to its volume. Therefore, the mole ratios of gases given by the coefficients in the balanced equation can be used as volume ratios of those gases to solve stoichiometry problems. No conversion from volume to amount is required to determine the volume of one gas from the volume of another gas in a balanced chemical equation. There is one condition that must be observed. Gas volumes can be related by mole ratios only when the volumes are measured under the same conditions of temperature and pressure. If they are not, then the volume of one of the gases must be converted to the conditions of the other gas. Usually you will need to use the combined gas law for this conversion.

Concentration of Solutions
There are three principal ways to express solution concentration in chemistry— percentage by mass, molarity, and molality. The following table compares these three ways of stating solution concentration. Examining the method of preparation of the three types may help you understand the differences among them.
Symbol Percentage Molarity % M Meaning Grams solute per 100 g of solution Moles solute per liter of solution How to prepare 5%: Dissolve 5 g of solute in 95 g solvent. 5 M: Dissolve 5 mol of solute in solvent and add solvent to make 1 L of solution. 5 m: Dissolve 5 mol of solute in 1 kg of solvent. Molality m Moles solute per kilogram of solvent PERCENTAGE CONCENTRATION You will find percentages of solutes stated on the labels of many commercial products, such as household cleaners, liquid pesticide solutions, and shampoos. If your sink becomes clogged, you might buy a bottle of drain opener whose label states that it is a 2.4% sodium hydroxide solution. This means that the bottle contains 2.4 g of NaOH for every 100 g of solution. Computing percentage concentration is very much like computing percentage composition. Both involve finding the percentage of a single component of a multicomponent system. In each type of percentage calculation, the mass of the important component (in percentage concentration, the solute) is divided by the total mass of the system and multiplied by 100 to yield a percentage. In percentage concentration, the solute is the important component, and the total mass of the system is the mass of the solute plus the mass of the solvent.

MOLARITY Molarity is the most common way to express concentration in chemistry. Molarity is the number of moles of solute per liter of solution and is given as a number followed by a capital M. A 2 M solution of nitric acid contains 2 mol of HNO3 per liter of solution. As you know, substances react in mole ratios. Knowing the molar concentration of a solution allows you to measure a number of moles of a dissolved substance by measuring the volume of solution.

Whenever you make a solution, it is important to know whether or not the solute you are using is a hydrate and, if it is a hydrate, how many molecules of water are present per formula unit of the substance. This water must be taken into account when weighing out the solute. Something else to remember when making aqueous solutions from hydrates is that once the hydrate is dissolved, the water of hydration is considered to be part of the solvent.

Dilutions
Suppose you work in the laboratory of a paint company where you use 100 mL of a 0.1 M solution of zinc chloride in a qualitycontrol test that you carry out 10 times a day. It would be tedious and timeconsuming to continually measure out small amounts of ZnCl2 to make 100 mL of this solution. Of course, you could make many liters of the solution at one time, but that would require several large containers to store the solution. The answer to the problem is to make a much more concentrated solution and then dilute it with water to make the less concentrated solution that you need. The moreconcentrated solution is called a stock solution. You could make a 1 M ZnCl2 solution by measuring out 1 mol of zinc chloride, 136.3 g, and dissolving it in enough water to make a liter of solution. This solution is 10 times as concentrated as the solution you need. Every time you need the test solution, you can measure out 10 mL of the 1 M solution and dilute it to 100 mL to yield 100 mL of 0.1 M ZnCl2 solution. To make a solution by dilution, you must determine the volume of stock solution to use and the amount of solvent needed to dilute to the concentration you need. As you have learned, the molarity of a solution is its concentration in moles of solute per liter of solution. Molarity is found by dividing the moles of solute by the number of liters of solution. M moles solute liter solution molarity volume of solution So, for a measured volume of any solution: amount of solute in mol If this measured volume of solution is diluted to a new volume by adding solvent, the new, larger volume still contains the same number of moles of solute. Therefore, where 1 and 2 represent the concentrated and diluted solutions: molarity1 Therefore: molarity1 volume1 molarity2 volume2 This relationship applies whenever solution 2 is made from solution 1 by dilution. volume1 moles solute molarity2 volume2 Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston.

Sometimes, though, it is impractical to use the mass of a solution, especially with fuming solutions, such as concentrated HCl and concentrated HNO3 . Measuring these solutions by volume is much more practical. In order to determine the volume that should be measured, a worker would need to know the density of the solution.

Colligative Properties
Colligative properties of solutions are properties that depend solely on the number of particles of solute in solution. In other words, these properties depend only on the concentration of solute particles, not on the identity of those particles. Colligative properties result from the interference of solute particles with the motion of solvent molecules. Solute molecules can be either electrolytes or nonelectrolytes. When a nonelectrolyte dissolves, the molecule remains whole in the solution. Glucose and glycerol are examples of nonelectrolyte solutes. Ionic solutes are electrolytes. When they dissolve, they dissociate into multiple particles, or ions. When magnesium chloride dissolves in water, it dissociates as follows. MgCl2(s) O3 Mg2 (aq)
H2O 2Cl (aq) As you can see, when a mole of MgCl2 completely dissociates in solution, it produces 1 mol of Mg2 ions and 2 mol of Cl ions for a total of 3 mol of solute particles. Because colligative properties depend on the number of particles in solution, 1 mol of MgCl2 in solution should have three times the effect of 1 mol of a nonelectrolyte solute, such as glucose. Two important colligative properties are freezingpoint depression and boilingpoint elevation. A dissolved solute lowers the freezing point of the solution. The freezing point of a solution differs from that of the pure solvent according to the following equation, in which tf is the change in freezing point. tf Kf m Kf is a constant that differs for each solvent. Because the freezing point of the solution is lower than that of the solvent alone, Kf is a negative number. The symbol m represents the molality (moles of solute per kilogram of solvent) of the solution. Boilingpoint elevation works in the same way. The equation to determine the change in boiling point is as follows. tb Kbm Like Kf , Kb is a constant that differs for each solvent. But unlike Kf , Kb is a positive number because the boiling point of the solution is higher than that of the solvent alone. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

Equilibrium
Not all processes in nature proceed to completion. In fact, most changes hover somewhere between the initial state and what would be the final state. Compare a light switch and a dimmer. If the mechanical switch is working properly, it can be stable in only two positions: on or off. Either current flows or it doesn’t. With a dimmer you can regulate the flow of current so that it stays somewhere between fully on and fully off. If you’ve used mechanical balances, you know that to weigh an object accurately you must adjust the masses so that the pointer hovers in the middle of its range. The balance is in a state of equilibrium. Most chemical reactions also reach a state of equilibrium between no reaction at all and the complete reaction to form products. Equilibrium states occur when reactions are reversible, that is, when products react to reform the original reactants. When the products reform reactants at the same rate as the reactants form the products, then the equilibrium point of the reaction has been reached. The progress of a reaction is gauged by measuring the concentrations in moles per liter of reactants and products. At the equilibrium point, these concentrations stop changing. A 2B ^ 2C The equation above represents a reaction in which 1 mol of A reacts with 2 mol of B to produce 2 mol of C. As C is formed, it breaks down to reform reactants. The extent of the reaction at equilibrium is indicated by the equilibrium constant, Keq. Keq [C]2 [A][B] As you can see, the concentration of each reaction component is raised to the power of its coefficient in the balanced equation. These concentration terms are arranged in a fraction with products in the numerator and reactants in the denominator. Pure substances (substances that appear in the chemical equation as solids or pure liquids) are not included in the equilibrium expressions because their concentrations are meaningless. Problems involving chemical equilibrium will ask you to solve for either the equilibrium constant, Keq, given the concentrations of all of the reaction components, or the concentration of one of the reaction components, given Keq.

Equilibrium of Salts, Ksp
When you try to dissolve a solid substance in water, you expect the solid form to disappear, forming ions or molecules in solution. Most substances, however, are only slightly soluble in water. For example, when you stir silver chloride in water, you may think none of the solid dissolves. Does this mean that some of the solid dissolves, forms a saturated solution, and, after that, experiences no further change between the solid and solution phases? It is true to say that there is no further change in the amount of substance in either the solution or the solid phase, but to say, that no further change occurs is inaccurate. An equilibrium exists between the silver chloride and its dissolved ions, and a state of equilibrium is a dynamic state. The following chemical equation shows this equilibrium. AgCl(s) ^ Ag (aq) Cl (aq) Like the other examples of equilibria that you have studied, the extent to which this solubility equilibrium proceeds toward the products (the ions in solution) is indicated by an equilibrium constant. When an equilibrium constant is written for a solubility equilibrium, it is called a solubility product constant and is symbolized as Ksp. In solubility equilibrium problems, the reactants are pure substances, and pure substances are never included in an equilibrium expression. That means that you will not have anything in the denominator in the expression for the solubility product constant. This Ksp expression for the silver chloride example can be written as follows. Ksp [Ag ][Cl ] Note that the coefficients in the balanced equation are understood to be 1 for both silver and chlorine. Therefore, no exponents appear in the Ksp expression. As with any equilibrium expression, the concentration of each component is raised to the power of its coefficient from the balanced chemical equation. The value for this solubility product constant is 1.77 10 10 at 25°C. The very small value of Ksp indicates that silver chloride is only very slightly soluble in aqueous solution at this temperature. The value of Ksp supports the observation that little seems to occur when silver chloride is stirred into a water solution. In this worksheet, you will learn to apply the solubility equilibrium relationship to determine Ksp for substances and to calculate concentrations of ions in saturated solutions using their Ksp values.

pH
In 1909, Danish biochemist S. P. L Sørensen introduced a system in which acidity was expressed as the negative logarithm of the H concentration. In this way, the acidity of a solution having H concentration of 10 5 M would have a value of 5. Because the power of 10 was now a part of the number, the system was called pH, meaning power of hydrogen. Taking the negative logarithm of the hydronium ion concentration will give you a solution’s pH as given by the following equation. pH log[H3O ] Likewise, the value pOH equals the negative logarithm of the hydroxide ion concentration. pOH log[OH ] Water molecules interact with each other and ionize. At the same time, the ions in solution reform molecules of water. This process is represented by the following reversible equation. H2O(l) H2O(l) ^ H3O(aq) OH (aq) In pure water the concentrations of hydroxide ions and hydronium ions will always be equal. These two quantities are related by a term called the ion product constant for water, Kw. Kw [H3O ][OH ] The ion product constant for water can be used to convert from pOH to pH. The following equations derive a simple formula for this conversion. Pure water has a pH of 7. Rearranging the equation for pH, you can solve for the hydronium ion concentration of pure water, which is equal to the hydroxide ion concentration. These values can be used to obtain a numerical value for Kw. Kw [H3O ][OH ] [1 10

Titrations
Chemists have many methods for determining the quantity of a substance present in a solution or other mixture. One common method is titration, in which a solution of known concentration reacts with a sample containing the substance of unknown quantity. There are two main requirements for making titration possible. Both substances must react quickly and completely with each other, and there must be a way of knowing when the substances have reacted in precise stoichiometric quantities. The most common titrations are acidbase titrations. These reactions are easily monitored by keeping track of pH changes with a pH meter or by choosing an indicator that changes color when the acid and base have reacted in stoichiometric quantities. This point is referred to as the equivalence point. Look at the following equation for the neutralization of KOH with HCl. KOH(aq) HCl(aq) → KCl(aq) H2O(l) Suppose you have a solution that contains 1.000 mol of KOH. All of the KOH will have reacted when 1.000 mol of HCl has been added. This is the equivalence point of this reaction. Titration calculations rely on the relationship between volume, concentration, and amount. volume of solution molarity of solution amount of solute in moles If a titration were carried out between KOH and HCl, according the reaction above, the amount in moles of KOH and HCl would be equal at the equivalence point. The following relationship applies to this system: molarityKOH volumeKOH amount of KOH in moles amount of HCl in moles molarityHCl volumeHCl amount of KOH in moles amount of HCl in moles Therefore: molarityKOH volumeKOH molarityHCl volumeHCl The following plan for solving titration problems may be applied to any acidbase titration, regardless of whether the equivalence point occurs at equivalent volumes.

Equilibrium of Acids and Bases, Ka and Kb
The ionization of a strong acid, such as HCl, will proceed to completion in reasonably dilute solutions. This process is written as follows. HCl(g) H2O(l) → H3O (aq) Cl (aq) goes 100% to the right; NOT an equilibrium process. However, when weak acids and weak bases dissolve, they only partially ionize, resulting in an equilibrium between ionic and molecular forms. The following equation shows the equilibrium process that occurs when hydrogen fluoride, a weak acid, dissolves in water. HF(g) H2O(l) ^ H3O (aq) F (aq) does not go 100% to the right; IS an equilibrium process Most weak acids react in this way, that is, by donating a proton to a water molecule to form a H3O ion. The weak base ammonia establishes the following equilibrium in water. NH3(g) H2O(l) ^ NH4 (aq) OH (aq) Most weak bases react in this way, that is, by accepting a proton from a water molecule to leave an OH ion. You learned to write an equilibrium expression to solve for K, the equilibrium constant of a reaction. As with equilibrium reactions, equilibrium constants can be calculated for the ionization and dissociation processes shown above. The equilibrium constants indicate how far the equilibrium goes toward the ionic “products.” Recall that the concentration of each reaction component is raised to the power of its coefficient in the balanced equation. These concentration terms are arranged in a fraction with products in the numerator and reactants in the denominator. The equilibrium constants calculated for acid ionization reactions are called acid ionization constants and have the symbol Ka. The equilibrium constants calculated for base dissociation reactions are called base dissociation constants and have the symbol Kb. From the diagram on the next page and the problems in this chapter, you will see how these constants are calculated and how they relate to concentrations of the reactants and products and to pH.

Redox Equations
The feature that distinguishes redox reactions from other types of reactions is that elements change oxidation state by gaining or losing electrons. Compare the equations for the following two reactions: (1) KBr(aq) AgNO3(aq) → AgBr(s) Cl2( g) → 2KCl(aq) KNO3(aq) Br2(l) (2) 2KBr(aq) Equation 1 represents the combining of the salts potassium bromide solution and a silver nitrate solution to form a precipitate of insoluble silver bromide, leaving potassium nitrate in solution. The only change that occurs is that ions trade places, forming an insoluble compound. This reaction is a typical doubledisplacement reaction. It is driven by the removal of Ag and Br from solution in the form of a precipitate. You will recognize that Equation 2 is a singledisplacement reaction in which chlorine atoms replace bromine atoms in the salt KBr. Although it is not complex, Equation 2 differs from Equation 1 in a fundamental way. In order for chlorine to replace bromine, the uncharged atoms of elemental chlorine must change into chloride ions, each having a 1 charge. Also, bromide ions with a 1 charge must change into uncharged bromine atoms. The K is a spectator ion that doesn’t participate in the process. In fact, it could be Na , Ca2 , Fe3 , H , or any other stable cation. The loss of electrons by bromine is oxidation, and the gain of electrons by chlorine is reduction. Formation of the chloride ions and the bromine molecule involves the complete transfer of two electrons. The two chlorine atoms gain two electrons, and two bromide ions lose two electrons. Oxidation and reduction can involve the partial transfer of electrons as well as the complete transfer seen in the preceding example. The oxidation number of an atom is not synonymous with the charge on that atom, so a change in oxidation number does not require a change in actual charge. Take the example of the following halfreaction: H2C2O4(aq) → 2CO2( g) 2H (aq) 2e Carbon changes oxidation state from 3 to 4. Carbon is oxidized even though it is not ionized. The potassium bromide–chlorine reaction is simple, but many redox reactions are not. In this worksheet, you will practice the art of balancing redox equations and try your hand at morecomplex ones.

There are seven simple steps to balancing redox equations. You will find these steps in the General Plan for Balancing Redox Equations.
General Plan for Balancing Redox Equations 1 Write the unbalanced formula equation if it is not given. List formulas for any ionic substances as their individual ions, and write a total ionic equation. 2 Assign oxidation numbers to each element. Then rewrite the equation, leaving out any ions or molecules whose elements do not change oxidation state during the reaction. 3 Write the halfreaction for reduction. You must decide which element of the ions and molecules left after item 2 is reduced. Once you have written the halfreaction, you must balance it for charge and mass. 4 Write the halfreaction for oxidation. You must decide which element of the ions and molecules left after item 2 is oxidized. Once you have written the halfreaction, you must balance it for charge and mass. 5 Adjust the coefficients of the two halfreactions so that the same number of electrons are gained in reduction as are lost in oxidation. 6 Add the two halfreactions together. Cancel out anything common to both sides of the new equation. Note that the electrons should always cancel out of the total equation. 7 Combine ions to form the compounds shown in the original formula equation. Check to ensure that all other ions and atoms balance. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. Holt ChemFile: ProblemSolving Workbook 304 Redox Equations Back Print

The potential in volts has been measured for many different reduction halfreactions. The potential value is measured against the standard hydrogen electrode, which is assigned a value of zero. For consistency, these halfreactions are always written in the direction of the reduction. A halfreaction that has a positive reduction potential proceeds in the direction of the reduction when it is coupled with a hydrogen electrode. A reaction that has a negative reduction potential proceeds in the oxidation direction when it is coupled with a hydrogen electrode. Table 1 gives some common standard reduction potentials. TABLE 1

You can use reduction potentials to predict the direction in which any redox reaction will be spontaneous. A spontaneous reaction occurs by itself, without outside influence. The redox reaction will proceed in the direction for which the difference between the two halfreaction potentials is positive. This direction is the same as the direction of the more positive halfreaction.

If the cell potential is negative, the reaction is not spontaneous as written, but the reverse reaction is spontaneous. COMPUTE E 0cell 0.40 V 0.54 V 0.94 V The reaction potential is negative. Therefore, the reaction is not spontaneous. The reverse reaction would have a positive potential and would, therefore, be spontaneous. Cd2 (aq) Cd(s) EVALUATE Are the units correct?
Yes; cell potentials are in volts. 2I (aq) → Cd(s) I2(s) → Cd2 (aq) I2(s) not spontaneous 2I (aq) spontaneous Is the number of significant figures correct?
Yes; the number of significant figures is correct because the halfcell potentials have two significant figures. Is the answer reasonable?
Yes; the reduction potential for the halfreaction involving iodine was more positive than the potential for the reaction involving cadmium, which means that I2 has a greater attraction for electrons than Cd2 . Therefore, I2 is more likely to be reduced than Cd2 . The reverse reaction is favored. Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved.

PLAN What steps are needed to determine the spontaneous reaction of the cell and the cell voltage?
Determine which halfreaction has the more positive reduction potential. This will be the reduction halfreaction; it occurs at the cathode. Reverse the other halfreaction so that it becomes an oxidation halfreaction; it occurs at the anode. Adjust the halfreactions so that the same number of electrons are lost as are gained. Add the reactions together. Compute the cell voltage by the formula E 0cell E 0cathode E 0anode, using the reduction potentials for the reaction at each electrode.
