Solutions for Chapter 1: Chemistry: An Introduction
Full solutions for Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation | 7th Edition
A conformation in which the dihedral angle between two groups is 180°.
The number of bonding electron pairs shared between two atoms, minus the number of antibonding electron pairs: bond order = (number of bonding electrons - number of antibonding electrons)/2. (Section 9.7)
Properties that describe a substance’s composition and its reactivity; how the substance reacts or changes into other substances. (Section 1.3)
The most efficient arrangements for packing atoms, molecules, or ions in a crystal. (11.4)
Spin-spin coupling that occurs between nonequivalent H atoms bonded to the same C atom. The H atoms are generally nonequivalent owing to restricted bond rotation in the molecule
A reaction that involves the addition of X2 (either Br2 or Cl2) across an alkene.
Heat of combustion (DH0 )
Standard heat of combustion is the heat released when one mole of a substance in its standard state (gas, liquid, solid) is oxidized completely to carbon dioxide and water.
Liquids that do not dissolve in one another to a significant extent. (Section 13.3)
A series of atoms, ions, or molecules having the same number of electrons. (Section 7.3)
Thedetermining factor by which ions are separatedfrom each other in mass spectrometry.
nuclear disintegration series
A series of nuclear reactions that begins with an unstable nucleus and terminates with a stable one; also called a radioactive series. (Section 21.2)
Compounds formed from a molecule of phosphoric acid, a sugar molecule, and an organic nitrogen base. Nucleotides form linear polymers called DNA and RNA, which are involved in protein synthesis and cell reproduction. (Section 24.10)
An ion in which oxygen bears a positive charge.
Pi (p) bond
A covalent bond formed by the overlap of parallel 2p orbitals.
The structure of a protein resulting from the clustering of several individual protein chains into a final specific shape. (Section 24.7)
A detailed picture, or model, of how the reaction occurs; that is, the order in which bonds are broken and formed and the changes in relative positions of the atoms as the reaction proceeds. (Section 14.6)
root-mean-square (rms) speed 1M2
The square root of the average of the squared speeds of the gas molecules in a gas sample. (Section 10.7)
The conversion of an aryl diazonium salt into fluorobenzene upon treatment with fluoroboric acid (HBF4).
Fibrous proteins that are used for their structural rigidity. Examples include a-keratins found in hair, nails, skin, feathers, and wool.
A polymer that can be melted and molded into a shape that is retained when it is cooled.
