What is pressurevolume work? How is it calculated?
Chem 131 (10/10/16-10/21/16) Intro: here are the notes I’ve taken during Prof. Ondov’s lecture and from the textbook Chemistry: Structure and Properties 6th ed ition by Nivaldo J. Tro Chapter 6: Chemical Bonding Background [1970s]: endorphins, aka endogenous morphine, bind to other molecules. Morphine is a molecular imposter mimicking actions of endorphins due to shape. (VSEPR) valence shell electrons pair repulsion theory- accounts for molecular shape for predictions about molecules’ shape 6.1 Shared electrons are not equally shared. δ +partial positive charge δ −partial negative charge polar- positive and negative poles electronegativity- the ability of an atom to attract electrons in a chemical bond ➢ The larger an atom, the weaker its ability to attract electron
