Problem 149

The compound hexaazaisowurtzitane is the highest-energy explosive known (C & E News, Jan. 17, 1994, p. 26). The compound, also known as CL-20, was first synthesized in 1987. The method of synthesis and detailed performance data are still classified because of CL-20s potential military application in rocket boosters and in warheads of smart weapons. The structure of CL-20 is In such shorthand structures, each point where lines meet represents a carbon atom. In addition, the hydrogens attached to the carbon atoms are omitted; each of the six carbon atoms has one hydrogen atom attached. Finally, assume that the two O atoms in the NO2 groups are attached to N with one single bond and one double bond. Three possible reactions for the explosive decomposition of CL-20 are i. ii. iii. a. Use bond energies to estimate H for these three reactions. b. Which of the above reactions releases the largest amount of energy per kilogram of CL-20?

Chemistry Week 15 *Chapter 11* Properties of Gas A. A sample of gas assumes both the shape and volume of the container B. Gases are compressible C. The densities of gases are much smaller than those of liquids and solids and are highly variable depending on temperature and pressure D. Gases form homogenous mixtures (solutions) with one another in any proportion Gas Pressure A. Pressure is defined as the force applied per unit per area (pressure = force/area) B. 1 kg x m/s^2 C. Table 11.2 Boyles Law: The Pressure-Volume Relationship Laws A. Calculate the volume of a sample of gas at 5.75 atm if it occupies 5.14 L at 2.49 atm (assume constant temperature
