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....
