Q 1.2 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Ozone formation in the stratosphere is initiated by the following reaction:
O2 + hν → 2O (1) Which is followed by the reaction:

The energy needed to dissociate an oxygen molecule into oxygen atoms is 499
kJ/mol. What minimum wavelength (in nm) of light will initiate the reaction

4.35 x 1014 s-1 Solution: E = hν Q 1.4 How many photons of frequency 1.50 x 1014 s-1 are needed to give 30.1 J of
energy? Solution: First calculate the energy of a photon:
E = hν → → E = (6.626 x 10-34 Js)(4.35 x 1014 s-1) = 2.88 x 10-19 J E = 6.626 x 10-34 Js (1.50 x 1014 s-1) = 9.94 x 10-20 J Now, let “a” be the number of photons (factor) to contribute 30.1 J since we know
that 1 photon emits 9.94 x 1020 J of energy
E(a) = 30.1 J → 9.94 x 10-20 J (a) = 30.1 J a = 3.03 x 1020 photons Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions

to an energy of 2.58 J·mol-1 photons. Solution: Divide by Avagadro’s number to give the energy per photon
2.58 J ⋅ mol-1
= 4.28 4 x10 −24 J
6.022 x 10 23 mol−1
Wavelength can now be determined by dividing the product of the speed of light
and Plank’s constant by the energy per photon.

hydrogen chloride, HCl. What is the energy of a photon of this wavelength? Solution: First convert the wavelength from μm → m
3.34 μm x (1 m/1E6 μm) = 3.34 x 10-6 m Now energy can be calculated by the standard equation: E = hc
λ E = (6.626x10-34 Js)(2.998x108 ms-1)/(3.34x10-6 m) = 5.95 x 10-20 J Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions

between the tops of two successive crests (or the bottoms of two troughs). http://www.users.mis.net/~pthrush/lighting/wave.jpg Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
Q 1.8 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Which of the waves below has the higher frequency and which has the higher
energy? A) B) A, B C) B, A D) Solution: A, A B, B Correct answer: D
B has a higher frequency because the distance between the peaks of the waves are
smaller than A.
B also has a higher energy because Energy is inversely proportional to
wavelength. Since A has a longer wavelength, it will be of lower energy. Q 1.9 What is the wavelength of electrons moving at 0.5% of the speed of light?

Speed of light = 3.0 x 108 m/sec.
Speed of electrons = (3.0 x 108 m/sec)0.005 = 1.5 x 106 m/sec
λ = h/mv = (6.626 x 10-34Js)/[( 1.5 x 106 m/sec)(9.11 x 10-31kg)
= 4.8 x 10-10m = 0.48 nm Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
20 ©Prep101 Q 1.10 Chem110 MT1 Instructor What is the wavelength of light emitted when an electron in a hydrogen atom
undergoes a transition from the n = 5 to n =2 level? Solution:
∆E = Einitial − Efinal 1
1 ∆E = R H − n2 n2 i f RH = 2.179×10−18 J.
** your prof indicates that hcRH = 2.17 E-18 J 1
1 = 4.58 × 10-19 J
∆E = (2.179×10−18 J) − (2) 2 (5) 2 E= λ= hc λ , therefore hc (6.626 × 10 −34 Js)(3.0 × 108 m / s )

vicinity of 325 nm. What is the energy (in kJ) of photons of this wavelength,
expressed on a molar basis? Solution: 325 nm = 325 E-9 m
Ephoton = hc/λ = (6.626 E-34 Js)(2.998 E8 m)/(325 E-9) = 6.11 E-19 J/photon
6.11 E-19 J/photon (6.022 E23 photon/mol) = 3.68 E5 J/mol = 368 kJ/mol Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
21 ©Prep101 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Q 1.12 400 kJ of energy is required to break a mole of N-H bonds. What is the
wavelength of the radiation needed to break one N-H bond? Is this radiation
in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum? Solution: E = 400 E3 J/mol (1 mol / 6.022 E23 bonds) = 6.64 E-19 J/bond
λ = hc/E → (6.626 E-34 Js)(2.998 E8 m/s) / (6.63 E-19 J/bond) → 3.00 E-7 m 3.0 E-7 m (109 nm / 1 m) = 300.0 nm
The visible region is considered in between 400-800 nm. Therefore, 300 nm is
within the ultraviolet (UV) region. Q 1.13 Determine the wavelength of the line in Balmer series of hydrogen
corresponding to the transition from n = 4 to n = 2. Solution: First calculate the energy ∆E from the transition from nf = 5 and ni = 2. 1

transitions involved in this series?
E) Answer n=1
n=5 ni = 3, nf = 2
ni = 2, nf = 3
ni = 6, nf = 3
ni = 4, nf = 3
ni = 4, nf = 2 Correct Answer: C
Paschen refers to nf = 3. We are also told the wavelength is from the emission of
an electron so ni > 3 (for this question). Eliminate answers A, B, E
1094.1 nm 1.094 E-6 m
We can now calculate the frequency by the from the wavelength, λ = c/ν
ν = (2.998 E8 m·s-1) / (1.094 E-6 m) = 2.74 E14 s-1

νo = 5.57 E14 s-1, ν = (3.0 E8 m·s-1)/(5.1 E-7 m) = 5.88 E14 s-1
KEe= h(ν-νo) → KEe = 6.626 E-34 Js ((5.88 E14 s-1) – (5.57 E14 s-1)) KEe = 6.626 E-34 Js (3.12 E13 s-1)

Q* 1.22 Chem110 MT1 Instructor The workfunction is 2.70 eV for Na, 3.66 eV for Mg, and 2.14 eV for Cs.
Assume we shine light with a wavelength of 400 nm on the surface of the each
of these metals. Which of the following statements is/are TRUE about the
observed results? (Note 1 eV = 1.609 E-19 J)
A) Electrons are not ejected from Mg, but would be if the (incident) wavelength
of light were increased.
B) Electrons are ejected from both Cs and Na, and they would have a greater
velocity from Cs.
C) No electrons are ejected from Na, Mg, or Cs but would be if the light
frequency were increased.
D) Electrons are ejected from Mg and they have a velocity of 4.4 E5 m/s
E) Two of the four statements are TRUE. Solution: B
Convert wavelength to energy (J → eV)
E = hc/λ → E = 4.97 E-19 J → E = 3.09 eV KEe = h(E-Φ) We know that electrons are emitted if the energy exceeds
the threshold frequency (or work function, 3.09 eV). So in
this case, electrons are emitted for Na and Cs and not Mg.
(Eliminate C, D). If the incident wavelength was increased,
the energy would be smaller and electrons would still not
be ejected. (Eliminate A) KEe = ½ mu2 KEe is proportional to velocity. KE for Cs > Ke for Na, so
velocity of Cs particle is greater. Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions

E) 264.5 m, energy cannot be determined Solution: A is correct
rn = n2ao where ao = 52.9 pm r5 = (5)2 (52.9 pm) = 1322.5 pm
This is the radius! The diameter is 2r. Therefore the diameter is 2645 pm
En = -2.179 E-18 J / (52) = -8.716 E-20 J Q 1.24 For the Bohr hydrogen atom, determine whether there is an orbit having a
radius of 4.00 Å? Explain. Solution: rn = (n)2(0.529 Å) → 4.00/0.529 = n2 → n = 2.75 Since n ≠ integer; then therefore such an orbit does not exist. Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions

A) n = 4 orbit for He+
B) n = 1 orbit for H
C) n = 2 orbit for Be3+
D) n = 3 orbit for Li2+
E) n = 3 orbit for H Solution: Answer E

electron in a spherical shell at distance (r) from the nucleus.
C) Orbitals with the same ‘n’ value cannot overlap in space
D) For the same orbital type (same ‘ℓ’ quantum number), orbitals with the higher
‘n’ value will have a more negative energy
E) Two of the four statements are true Solution: A
Orbitals of same ‘n’ value can overlap in space (See Fig 8-34 in text). The Ψ2 is
the finding the electron in space. Q* 1.30 Which statement(s) is/are FALSE in comparing the electronic transition
from ni = 5 to nf = 2 in hydrogen with that of the electronic transition from ni
= 2 to nf = 5 in Be3+?
A) The photon involved in the H transition lies in the visible spectrum while that
involved in the Be3+ transition lies in the UV region of the spectrum.
B) A photon of the same frequency is involved in both transition, but is emitted
in the hydrogen electron transition and absorbed in the Be3+ electronic
C) The wavelength of the photon emitted by hydrogen is 16 times the wavelength
of the photon absorbed by Be3+.
D) The transition in hydrogen is a Balmer emission series line
E) Two of the four statements are FALSE. Solution: B
The frequency is different for a hydrogen atom than a hydrogen-like atom, by the
equation ∆E = Z2hcRH((1/n12)-(1/nf2)) and Z = # protons. The photon involved in
the H transition lies in the visible spectrum (recall the emission lines). For Be3+ (Z
= 4), so the photon emitted by hydrogen is 16 times the wavelength absorbed by
Be3+ because Z2 = 16 and energy is inversely proportional to wavelength. When nf
= 2, this is a Balmer emission series. Q 1.31 Define the Pauli Exclusion Principle Solution: Each electron in an atom has a unique set of quantum numbers. When one
electron in an atom is described by a particular set of quantum numbers, no other
electron in the atom is described by the same set.

40 ©Prep101 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Chapter 9 Questions
Q 2.1 Arrange the following in order of increasing radius: Sr2+, Br-, V5+, Ti4+ Solution: V5+ < Ti4+ < Sr2+ < BrThe electron configurations are...
# of protons
Br : [Kr]
Sr+2 and Br_ have the same number of electrons; however, Zeff is greater for
Sr+2 due to a greater # of protons, resulting in a greater + charge that pulls the
electrons closer to the nucleus. Thus, Sr+2 is smaller than Br-.
V+5 and Ti+4 have the same number of electrons; however, Zeff is greater for V+5
due to a greater # of protons. Thus V+5 is smaller than Ti+4.
Sr+2 & Br_ are larger than V+5 & Ti+4 because there are more electrons held in a
larger subshell. Q 2.2 Arrange the following in order of decreasing electron affinity: Cl, Br, I. Solution: Cl > Br > I
Electron affinity decreases from top to bottom.
EA (Cl) = -349 kJ/mol
EA (Br) = -324 kJ/mol
EA (I) = -295 kJ/mol
Chlorine is most likely to gain an electron. Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
46 ©Prep101 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Q 2.3 Which element, S or Cl, has the more negative electron affinity? Why? Solution: Electron affinity becomes more negative from left to right because Cl has higher
Zeff than S.
EA(Cl) = -349 kJ/mol, EA (S) = -200.4 kJ/mol Q 2.4 Which element, Li or K, has the larger atomic radius? Why? Solution: For K, valence electron is in 4s orbital while valence electron in Li is in 2s orbital.
4s orbital is larger than 2s. Q 2.5 Which atom, Kr or Xe, has the lower ionization energy? Why? Solution: Ionization of Xe removes 5p electron while ionization of Kr removes 4p electron.
Ionization energy ∝ 2
n Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
47 ©Prep101 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Q 2.6 Arrange the following species in the orders requested:
A) Ca2+, Cl−, S2−, K+ in order of increasing size (smallest first).
B) Be, B, N, O in order of increasing first ionization energy (smallest first). Solutions: A) Ca2+ < K+ < Cl− < S2−
B) B < Be < O < N Q 2.7 Circle which of the following has the highest ionization energy:
Na Solution: Ca Mg Correct Answer: Mg
Ionization energy increase as you move up a group and it also increases as you
move right across a period. Q 2.8 Circle which of the following has the largest radius:
N Solution: F P Mg Correct answer: Mg
Radius increase as you move left along a period and as you move down a group. Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
Q 2.9 Chem110 MT1 Instructor The species Ar, Ca+2, and S-2 have the same electron configuration.
A) Give the electron configuration in the standard "spdf" notation.
B) Which species has the lowest electron affinity?
C) Which species has the smallest radius?
D) Arrange the species in order of increasing ionization energy? Solutions: A) [Ar] or [Ne]3s23p6
The species with the least favorable electron affinity is S-2 because it has the
smallest Zeff (a smaller positive charge to pull electrons towards the nucleus).
Ca+2 has the greatest Zeff because it has the greatest number of protons pulling on
the 18 electrons, resulting in the electrons being closer to the nucleus.
D) S-2 < Ar < Ca+2
Ionization energy is the energy required to remove an electron. It is most difficult
to remove an electron from Ca+2, as this will involve the removal of a core
electron instead of a valence electron, and Ca+2 has the greatest Zeff. It is easier to
remove an electron from S-2 versus Ar because S-2 has a smaller Zeff. Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
Q 2.10 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Given the following data:
K (g) :
I1 = 419 kJ/mol
I1 = 590 kJ/mol I2=3050 kJ/mol
I2=1140 kJ/mol A) Explain why the first ionization energy for potassium is smaller than the
first ionization energy for calcium, but the second ionization energy for
potassium is larger than the second ionization energy for calcium.
B) Write out the reactions associated to I2 for both species
C) Rank the following from the smallest radius to largest radius: Se2-, Rb+,
Solutions: A) I1(K) < I1 (Ca) because Zeff increases from left to right across a period, so Ca
has a higher Zeff and it is therefore harder to remove an electron. I2 (K) > I2 (Ca)
because the ionization process for Ca leads to the formation of the stable noble
gas configuration (Ca2+) while the ionization reaction for K requires the
destruction of a stable noble gas configuration. The former will always be lower
B) K+(g) → K2+ (g) + e−
Ca+(g) → Ca2+(g) + e− C) The larger the negative charge, the greater the repulsion between electrons,
the larger the radius. These are all atoms that have the configuration of Kr, so
only charge influences radius. Therefore, Rb+ < Br− < Se2−
The ionization energy decreases as you go down Group 1 because as n increases it
is easier to remove the outer electron. Radius increases as you go down Group A
because as n increases, the radius increases. Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
50 ©Prep101 Q 2.11 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Consider neutral atoms with the following electron configurations:
Which atom has the largest first ionization energy AND which one has the
smallest second ionization energy? Explain.
1s22s22p6 = Ne
1s22s22p63s1 = Na
1s22s22p63s2 = Mg Solution: Ne has the largest first ionization energy as an electron is removed from the n = 2
shell, compared to n = 3 shell for Na and Mg. An electron from Na or Mg requires
less energy to remove because the n =3 shell is further from the nucleus, and is
better shielded by core electrons in the n = 2 shell.
Mg has a smaller second ionization energy because the second electron to be
removed is a valence electron (n = 3), whereas the second electron removed from
Na is taken from a core electron (n = 2). Q 2.12 Arrange the following species in order of decreasing radius: Br-, Y3+, Rb+,
A) Se2-, Br-, Kr, Rb+, Y3+
B) Y3+, Rb+, Kr, Br-, Se2C) Kr, Se2-, Br-, Rb+, Y3+
D) Kr, Y3+, Rb+, Br-, Se2E) Rb+,Y3+, Kr, Se2-, Br- Solution: A
All isoelectronic, so therefore greater number of electrons gives more pull
towards nucleus (smaller radius). Anion < neutral < cation Solutions will be posted at www.prep101.com/solutions
Q 2.13 Chem110 MT1 Instructor Arrange the following species in order of increasing radius: Se, Pb, Sn, Ge,
Se < As < Ge < Sn < Pb
Left to right:
Top to bottom: Q 2.14 Ge > As > Se
Pb > Sn > Ge Arrange the following species in order of increasing ionization energy: Al, In,
Ga, Si, S?
A) In, Ga, Si, S, Al
B) Si, S, Al, Ga, In
C) In, Al, Ga, Si, S
D) In, Ga, Al, Si, S
E) S, Si, Al, Ga, In Solution: Correction Answer:
We know that IE is the ability (energy required) to remove an electron. Therefore,
IE will increase from L → R (as the atom becomes more electronegative). It will
be easier to remove an electron from a bigger atom than a smaller atom, so IE will
decrease from top to bottom.
