CH Exam 1 Study Guide All of these terms can be found and explained more in depth in my notes that have been posted weeks’ prior. (You should also brush up on concepts from last semester such as Periodic Trends, solubility in nonpolar and polar substances, IMF’s, etc.)  Define Spontaneity  Spontaneous  Non-spontaneous  What two factors affect spontaneity  Entropy (change in S)  Enthalpy (change in H)  Define Entropy  S increases as  Volume increases  Temp increases  Pressure decreases  Molar mass increases  # of atoms in a molecule increases  Laws of Thermo  1 law, 2 nd law, 3 law  Gibbs Free energy  ∆G=∆H-T ∆S  ∆H (+): Endothermic (Break Bonds)  ∆H (-): Exothermic (forming bonds)  ∆S (+):  More disorder  Increase volume  Decrease pressure  Increase temperature  More complex twisty molecules  If ∆G(-), the change is spontaneous  If ∆G (+), the change is nonspontaneous  If ∆G=0, the change is at equilibrium  If ∆H and ∆S are opposite signs, ∆G will always have the same sign as ∆H  If ∆H and ∆S are same signs, ∆G will be temperature dependent  At equilibrium, ∆G=0=∆H-T∆S  ∆G can also be found using the ∆G(rxn)= (sum of the products) – (sum of the reactants)  Elements in standard state have a ∆G(f)=0  If ∆G(f) is (+), it is thermodynamically unstable and has the tendency to decompose into its elements or standard state.  If ∆G(f) is (-), the element or compound is thermodynamically stable  Solutions  Like dissolves like  If ∆H-T∆S is (-) then a homogeneous solution forms  Know the factors that affect solubility  Colligative Properties  Lowering Vapor Pressure  VP(solution)=X*VP(solvent)  X(solvent)=moles solvent/ (moles solvent+(i) (moles solute)  Phase Diagrams  Freezing Point and Boiling Point  Osmosis  UNITS OF CONCENTRATION  Molarity  Molality  Mass Percent  Mole Fraction  Relative Rates of reaction  aA+bB->cC+dD  know the rate of reaction formula  reactants is (-)  products is (+)  Rate Law  Rate=K([A]^m)*([B]^n)*([C]^z)  Reaction Order  Overall Order  Determine the rate law by the method of Initial Rates  Integrated rate laws  Graphing data to determine order  Half- Life (the time required to reduce the concentration of a reactant to one half its original concentration)
