Unformatted text preview: 10.) Why are some vibrations infrared active, others inactive? Draw vibrations of CO 2 and name them. Which are IR active and why? 11.) Mechanism of the greenhouse effect (ranges of radiation emitted by the sun, earth; what is absorbed?) 12.) Global warming evidence that it has occurred, changes in greenhouse gas content in the last 150 years arguments for and against a human role. Provisions of the Kyoto protocol. 13.) Calculating molecular weights, numbers of moles, numbers of molecules. 14.) Simple chemical arithmetic, e.g.: How much CO 2 do I get from burning X g of C, percent composition. 15.) Calculating heat of reaction from bond energies table will be given. 16.) Sources of energy in the US which are fossil fuels? 17.) Why does ozone screen out longer wavelengths of radiation than O 2 ? 18.) Chapman cycle: Know which species and wavelengths involved, steps in the cycle....
