Exam 2 Study Guide Questions 1. How many Carbon atoms are in [(C H )2]?6 3w many Hydrogens? 2. What is the unit of measurement for moles? 3. What is Avogadro’s number for Molar Mass? 4. What is the difference between Formula Mass and Molar Mass? 5. What are the properties of Acids? Bases? 6. Is HCl + H 2 = Cl + H O3an Acid or a Base? 7. What is the difference between a Strong Acid/Base and a Weak Acid/Base 8. Wha2 would-2he pH value be for a hydrogen ion concentration of 10 (1x10 )? 9. Is a pH value of 9 acidic or basic? 10. What does Oxidation do? What does Reduction do? 11. Give an example of Oxidation. 12. What are Hydrocarbons? 13. Name the Alkanes from Methane to Hexane. 14. Define Alkane, Alkene, and Alkyne 15. What is an Alkyl Group? Name some. 16. What are Isomers? 17. What is the difference between an Isomer and an Alkyl Group? 18. What functional group is C-O-H a part of? 19. What functional group is O-C-O-H a part of? 20. What functional group is O-C-O-C a part of? 21. What functional group is N-H a2part of? 22. What are Halogenated Hydrocarbons? Give an example. 23. What are Freons? 24. What is a Polymer? What makes up a Polymer? 25. What is Addition Type in Synthetic Polymers? What does this process look like? 26. What is Condensation Type? What does this process look like? 27. What is Cross-linking? 28. What are Elastomers? 29. What is the Glass Transition Temperature? 30. What do Plasticizers do for Elastomers? Answers 1. Since there are 2 Carbon atoms in the compound, and three of those compounds, there are 6 Carbons altogether. 2. Grams 3. 6.02 x 10 23 4. Formula Mass is in amu, while Molar Mass is in grams 5. Turn Litmus Red (indicator) Donate H ions (Hydrogen Ion) Acids Generate H O 3ons (Hydronium Ion) Turn Litmus Blue Accept H ions Bases - Generate OH ions (Hydroxide ions) 6. Acid. It donates a H ion and produces H O . 3 + 7. A Strong Acid or Base will have an ionization process in which all reactants become products. A Weak Acid or Base will have an ionization process in which not all reactants become products and actually give back to the reactants, forming equilibrium. 8. 2 9. Basic. Anything above 7 is Acidic. 7 is Neutral. Anything below 7 is Basic. 10.Oxidation adds oxygen atoms and loses electrons, while Reduction loses oxygen and gains electrons. 11.C + O =2CO (ad2s Oxygen) 12.Hydrocarbons are Carbon-based compounds that connect with Hydrogen. 13.Methane, Ethane, Propane, Butane, Pentane, Hexane 14.Alkane has a single carbon to carbon bond; Alkene has a double carbon to carbon bond; Alkyne has a triple carbon to carbon bond. 15.Alkyl groups are those structures that are of a certain element or compound but are not complete, so as to enable them to attach to other bonds. Some include Methyl and Ethyl. 16.Isomers are compounds that can have different empirical structures while keeping the same molecular structure, or number of each atom. 17.Isomers are complete and are the exact same compound, just in different structural form. Alkyl groups are a part of that compound, but are not complete and therefore are different form the original compound. For example, Methane and a compound from the Methyl Group are different. 18.Hydroxyl 19.Carboxyl 20.Ester 21.Amine 22.Compounds containing Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, etc. from the Halogens on the Periodic Table. An example is CHCl (Chl3roform). 23.Freons completely replace Hydrogen atoms with Halogens. 24.A Polymer is a set of macromolecules with regular repeating units. They are made up of Monomers. 25.Addition Type is a step-wise process of building monomers into polymers. If you have a monomer, and that monomer becomes a diradical (having two unpaired electrons), they will add together. The product of that equation will then add to the original monomer, and so on. 26.Condensation Types form from condensation reactions and have H O as 2 a product. The process is simply putting the two compounds together and leaving an H O2out. 27.Cross-linking is where polymer chains are linked together. 28.Elastomers are materials that will return to their original shape after being deformed. 29.The Glass Transition Temperature is the temperature above which an elastomer is soft (elastic) and below which an elastomer is brittle (glass-like). 30.Plasticizers can make a brittle plastic more flexible by lowering the GTT
