Discuss the octet rule and why there are exceptions to the rule.
The Octet Rule states that an atom will always attempt to have a full set of eight valence
electrons by bonding with other atoms either covalently or ionically. The Octet Rule is
one of the
Explain how atomic orbitals interact and give rise to molecular
We can start off by describing how these occur which is really quite simple. The
formation of molecular orbitals occurs when atomic orbitals overlap. With this we
must remember tha
What would be the implications if neutrinos can be made
to go faster than the speed of light? How would it affect
our understanding of the way the universe behaves?
Well obviously if this feat was truly achieved the theory of relativity must be re-written
M4A3 Project 1
In this research paper I will be outlining a brief history of the element Oxygen. We will discuss
who discovered the oxygen element, when it was discovered, modern and ancient uses of the
element, ways that it affects our
Is the volume of an ideal gas really zero if cooled to absolute zero?
According to Tro, below -273.15C, the gas would have a negative volume, which is physically
impossible.(Pg. 203) It is because of this that 0K is considered absolute zero, there simply
Explain how capillary action is used to transport water and nutrients in trees.
Capillary action is defined as the movement of water within the spaces of a porous
material due to the forces of adhesion, cohesion, and surface tension. Trees couldn't grow
When you purchase a bottle of water, is the water totally
pure? If not, what is in the bottle other than the water?
This was an eye-opening question to research. It turns out that
bottle water is permitted more contaminants by the FDA then tap
water is al
What are some practical applications of increasing the boiling point of water by
increasing the pressure exerted on it?
In gasoline-powered automobile engine works in a modified Otto cycle which may
generate temperatures in the neighborhood of 2500C. Appr
M7A3 Project 2
In this research paper I will be outlining a brief history of the compound Sildenafil. We will
discuss who discovered the chemical compound, when it was discovered, who manufactures the
chemical, some of the chemical prop
Explain the advantages and disadvantages of large and small-scale electrical
We will start with the advantages found in large-scale electrical production starting with
Nuclear power. The greatest advantage with Nuclear power is that a moderate
Explain the Carnot Cycle and its relative efficiencies.
The Carnot Cycle is one of the essential thermodynamic cycles. A heat engine is a device
that produces motion from heat. The Carnot Cycle describes the most efficient possible
heat engine, involving
