Re: Chem Lab C

:D I think you just made my day! <3

Is periodicity still going to be there, or will that rotate to something harder too?

Re: Chem Lab C

I can only pray it's something more difficult than electrochem.. perhaps like equilibrium.

Re: Predictions

Hopefully, WW-P will do well this year. We did better at states than last year (74) but we haven't studied at all since states, which was two months ago... A few days of cramming might save us. Anyways, predicting that Solon and Centerville will do really well. Though I kinda do want a non-Ohio tea...

Re: Chem Lab C

Basically just balance a lot of redox reactions. Do easy ones, do hard ones, do everything. Find equations online, find equations in textbooks, past exams, anything. Really, it's just a memorization of the method and brute force practice.

Re: Chem Lab C

an example of a periodic table trend is: electronegativity: increases right to left across the periodic table, and increases top to bottom. therefore, fluorine has one of the largest electronegativities, and francium is one of the smallest. this is more likely than not (correct me if I'm wrong) due ...

Re: Chem Lab C

transition metals form colored compounds because of the unique nature of the d-orbitals. color is the release of energy when an electron moves from a higher energy orbital to a lower one. this is more easily achieved with a d-orbital than in other compounds.

Re: Chem Lab C

At a first glance I would say that the 2s2 element has a completed subshell (2s) which provides stability.

Likewise, the 2p1 element has a "loose" electron that is in a new subshell, hence it is slightly less stable.
