Exam 1 Study Guide Fall 2016 Chapter 11  What is the valence bond theory and how does it work?  Be able to draw any molecule and determine its hybridization, shape and angle.  What is the difference between a sigma and pi bond?  What is the molecular orbital diagram and how does it work?  Be able to calculate the Bond Order and determine its bond strength.  What is paramagnetic vs diamagnetic. Once you draw the molecular orbital diagram, determine whether it is paramagnetic or diamagnetic.  Know the difference between Antibonding vs Bonding. Which is stronger?  Remember the exceptions in the Molecular Orbital Diagrams. Look at Boron, Carbon and Nitrogen. Chapter 12  Know the processes that we learned in lecture. For example, a liquid that goes to a gas is vaporization. Know all of those, also know which are exothermic and endothermic.  Know that heat is also known as enthalpy.  Know how a cooling curve works, and the equations that correspond with the cooling curve.  What is dynamic equilibrium?  Know how to apply Clausius-Claperyon Equation. Make sure to keep the units consistent.  Know how to read a Phase Diagram.  Know the difference between intermolecular vs intramolecular  Know the types of intermolecular forces and determine which has the highest boiling point.  What is Polarizability? Determine which is more polarizable, we did examples in class.  Which 3 atoms are associated with Hydrogen Bonding? (N, O, F)  What is surface tension and viscosity?  What are the reasons water is unique? (4 reasons why)  What is the difference between crystalline and amorphous solids?  What is a Crystal Lattice and a Unit cell?  How many atoms are associated with a Simple Cubic Cell, Body- centered, and Face Centered cell?  Be able to calculate density, edge length, volume of a side of a unit cell  Know the difference between semiconductor, insulator, and conductor Chapter 13  Like dissolves Like rule, know how to apply the rule  What is the difference between saturated, unsaturated and supersaturated solutions?  Be able to apply Henry’s Law  Be able to find Molarity, Molality, Parts by mass and parts by volume, and Mole Fraction  Know how to apply Raoul’s Law and Vapor Pressure Lowering  Know how to apply Boiling Point Elevation and Freezing Point Depression  What is osmotic pressure and be able to calculate it  What is the van’t hoff factor (i), and be able to apply it  Remember to look over the lecture notes, sapling and homework. There is still a lot of information that can be on the exam. These were just the main topics that were covered
