Unformatted text preview: Advanced Inorganic Chemistry Final Exam Study Guide The final (250 points) will be composed of two parts: The ACS inorganic exam (60 multiple choice questions, 2 points each, graded out of 80 points) Another portion, similar to the regular exams (170 points) One the in-house final, there will be some short answer questions, similar to 3-6 point questions on previous exams. The remaining problems will present an inorganic chemical system, then ask you several questions about that system. The questions will be likely to cover a range of topics and will focus on concepts on this study guide. For example, I might present the formula and structure of a coordination compound from the literature and then ask you to do several things. These might include: naming the compound, calculating the spin only magnetic moment, discussing the strong/weak field characteristics of the ligands, identifying the point group and asking about how you would expect the geometry to differ from ideality. Expect a mixthe point group and asking about how you would expect the geometry to differ from ideality....
