For problems involving calculations, show your work in an organized manner, include any relevant equation (or formula and conversion factor(s)), put the proper units in your calculations / answer, and have the proper number of significant figures in your answer. 



Academic Honesty:   The answers on this test are my own and I am using only the allowed set of notes as described in the syllabus.  I have not discussed the test questions with anyone before or during the test nor have I seen the test questions prior to the exam.  If you violate any of the preceding items or do not sign, your semester grade is a F.

1.  An eudiometer tube is used to measure the volume of a gas in a reaction.  An unknown amount of Mg reacting with excess HCl produced 35 mL of gas in the eudiometer tube; the atmospheric pressure is 750 mm Hg; temperature = 50 °C; the fluid in the eudiometer tube was 10.0 cm higher than the surrounding fluid.  What was the mass of Mg in the reaction ?  hint;  10.3 m water = 1.0 atm.  [10 points]




2.  If a hypothetical gas effuses 4 times slower than methane gas, what is its molar mass ?  [5 points]

3.  2.0 g solid potassium hydroxide dissolves in 150. mL water at 19 °C.  What is the temperature of the water after all of the potassium hydroxide dissolved in water ?   [15 points]



4.  How much heat would be produced in the complete combustion of 1.0 g of an aldehyde containing a methyl group ?  [15 points]


5.  In regards to the change in enthalpy to dissolve solid sodium hydroxide in water,   [15 points]


a.  what is the ΔS of this process ?



b.  what are the two factors that could qualitatively account for the sign of ΔS of this process ?



c.  which of the preceding two factors has a greater effect on the sign of ΔS for this process ?  justify your choice.



6.  old topic:  valence bond theory  [10 points]


Using valence bond theory, describe the bonds in the nitrogen molecule.  Clearly indentify:  the atomic orbitial / hybrid orbital involved in the bonds & type of bonds (i.e. pi versus sigma).  Hint:  email send during the winter break
