Ch. 17 & 20  equilibrium II & electrochem      test                 [115 points]                             AP Chem


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.  Clearly identify the problems done and do them in sequence and your answer must begin and end on the same page of paper; otherwise, you will lose points.  attach this sheet to the front of your exam.


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.
