Methane, CH4(g), burns in oxygen, O2(g), to produce carbon dioxide, CO2(g), and water, H2O(l). a. Write a balanced equation for this process. b. Th is process is described as irreversible. What does this mean?
Intermolecular Forces - Molecules leave surface of liquids and enter gas state; re-enter liquid phase through surface - When vapor pressure = room pressure, the liquid is then boiling - Compounds are held together by different forces - Dipole- no + or -; distributed evenly - Hydrocarbons are always nonpolar - Van der Waal’s forces: attractive forces that hold particles together in the condensed phases that include dipole-dipole interactions and dispersion forces - Dispersion forces are present in all molecules to hold them together - Dipole attraction must include polar molecules - Hydrogen bonding occurs in molecules that contain H bonded to a small electronegative atom - Crystal structure of exte
