Unformatted text preview: The coefficients are fairly big, but not unreasonable. 3. Calculate the H for the reaction. Is the reaction exothermic or endothermic? 4. Calculate the S for the reaction. Is there an increase or decrease in entropy? 5. Calculate the G for the reaction (assume the reaction takes place at 25 o C). Is this reaction spontaneous or non-spontaneous? 6. Explain the differences between the ground state and the excited state. How does an electron move to the excited state? What happens when an electrons returns to the ground state? 7. Why is the flame purple?...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
