1.5 Significant Figures and Calculations
A. Rules for Counting Significant Figures
Number Rule Example
Nonzero integers Always significant 6.34 m (3 sig figs)
Leading zeroes Never significant 0.00634 m ( 3 sig figs)
Captive zeroes Always significant 6.0034 (5 sig figs)
Trailing zeroes Significant if after a decimal 63400 (3 sig figs)
0.63400 (5 sig figs)
Exact numbers Infinite significance e.g. There is 1 star at the
center of our solar system.
the number "1"
Scientific notation All digits are significant
6.3400 x 10
6
(5 sig figs)
B. Multiplication and Division
1. Keep as many sig figs in your answer as are in the piece of data with
the least number of sig figs
2.37 cm x 15.67 cm x 7.4 cm = 274.82046
(keep two sig figs) = 2.7 x 10
2
cm
3
1. Keep the same number of decimal places as the least precise
34.039 m + 0.24 m + 1.332 m + 12.7 m = 48.311 m
(keep one decimal place) = 48.3 m
D. Rules for Rounding
1. Round at the end of a series of calculations, NOT after each step
2. Use only the first number to the right of the last sig fig to decide
whether or not to round
a. Less than 5, the last significant digit is unchanged
b. 5 or more, the last significant digit is increased by 1
Note from this section in your book: Detailed solutions and stepwise examples of
problems in this text show correct sig figs at each step. Since you will most often do a
sequence of calculations and then round to correct sig figs at the end, your answer will
often be slightly different (usually only in the last place) than the answer given in the
book.
1. Significant figures rules will be observed in all calculations throughout
the year in this course. You need never ask, "Do we have to watch our
sig figs?" The answer is always "Yes!"

5.6 The Kinetic Molecular Theory of Gases (KMT)
A. Postulates of the KMT Related to Ideal Gases
1. The particles are so small compared with the distances between them
that the volume of the individual particles can be assumed to be zero
2. The particles are in constant motion. Collisions of the particles with the
walls of the container cause pressure
3. Assume that the particles exert no forces on each other.
4. The average kinetic energy of a collection of gas particles is assumed
to be directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature of the gas
B. Explaining Observed Behavior with KMT
1. P and V (T = constant)
a. As V is decreased, P increases:
V decrease causes a decrease in the surface area. Since P
is force/area, the decrease in V causes the area to
decrease, increasing the P
2. P and T (V = constant)
a. As T increase, P increases
The increase in T causes an increase in average kinetic
energy. Molecules moving faster collide with the walls of the
container more frequently, and with greater force
3. V and T (P = constant)
a. As T increases, V also increases
Increased T creates more frequent, more forceful collisions.
V must increase proportionally to increase the surface area,
and maintain P
4. V and n (T and P constant)
a. As n increases, V must increase
Increasing the number of particles increases the number of
collisions. This can be balanced by an increase in V to
maintain constant P
5. Dalton's law of partial pressures
a. P is independent of the type of gas molecule
KMT states that particles are independent, and V is
assumed to be zero. The identity of the molecule is therefore
unimportant
C. Root Mean Square Velocity
1. Velocity of a gas is dependent on mass and temperature.
2. Velocity of gases is determined as an average

6.1 The Nature of Energy
A. Definition
1. Energy is the capacity to do work (or to produce heat*)
a. Work is a force acting over a distance (moving an object)
b. *Heat is actually a form of energy.
(1) chemicals may store potential energy in their bonds that
can be released as heat energy
B. Law of Conservation of Energy
1. Energy can be converted from one form to another, but cannot be
created or destroyed
a. Potential energy
(1) energy due to position or composition
b. Kinetic energy
(1) energy due to the motion of an object
(2)

=
C. Heat and Temperature
1. Temperature reflects random motion of particles in a substance
2. Temperature indicates the direction in which heat energy will flow
3. Heat is a measure of energy content
4. Heat is what is transferred during a temperature change
D. State Functions
1. A property of a system that depends only on its present state.
2. State functions do not depend on what has happened in the system, or
what might happen in the system in the future
3. State functions are independent of the pathway taken to get to that
state.
Example: a liter of water behind a dam has the same potential energy for
work regardless of whether it flowed downhill to the dam, or was taken
uphill to the dam in a bucket. The potential energy is a state function
dependent only on the current position of the water, not on how the water
got there.
E. Chemical Energy
1. Exothermic reactions
a. Reactions that give off energy as they progress
b. Some of the potential energy stored in the chemical bonds is
converted to thermal energy (random KE) through heat
c. Products are generally more stable (stronger bonds) than
reactants
2. Endothermic reactions
a. Reactions in which energy is absorbed from the surroundings
b. Energy flows into the system to increase the potential energy of
the system
c. Products are generally less stable (weaker bonds) than the
reactants
F. Thermodynamics

2. Heat of rxn is an extensive property - dependent on the amount of
substance

## 6.3 Hess's Law

A. Statement of Hess's Law
1. In going from a particular set of reactants to a particular set of
products, the change in enthalpy (H) is the same whether the reaction
takes place in one step or in a series of steps
One step:
N
2
(g) + 2O
2
(g) 2NO
2
(g) H
1
= 68kJ
Two step
N
2
(g) + O

(g) 2NO (g) H

= 180kJ
2NO (g) + O

= -112kJ
N
2
(g) + 2O
2
(g) 2NO
2
(g) H
2
+ H
3
= 68kJ
B. Characteristics of Enthalpy Changes
1. If a reaction is reversed the sign on H is reversed
N
2
(g) + 2O
2
(g) 2NO
2
(g) H = 68kJ
2NO
2
(g) N
2
(g) + 2O
2
(g) H = - 68kJ
2. The magnitude of H is directly proportional to the quantities of
reactants and products in a reaction. If the coefficients in a balanced
reaction are multiplied by an integer, the value of H is multiplied by
the same integer
C. Using Hess's Law
1. Work backward from the final reaction
2. Reverse reactions as needed, being sure to also reverse H
3. Remember that identical substances found on both sides of the
summed equation cancel each other

B. Standard Enthalpy of Formation (H
f
)
1. The change in enthalpy that accompanies the formation of one mole of
a compound from its elements with all elements in their standard state
C. Calculating enthalpy change
1. When a rxn is reversed, the magnitude of H remains the same, but its
sign changes
2. When the balanced eqn for a rxn is multiplied by an integer, the value
of H must be multiplied by the same integer
3. The change in enthalpy for a rxn can be calculated from the enthalpies
of formation of the reactants and products

vap
) is the energy
required to vaporize one mole of a liquid at 1 atm
B. Vapor Pressure

pressure)
***remember vapor pressure corrections made in gas law problems
involving water displacement
2. Variation in Vapor Pressure

C. Sublimation
1. A process in which a substance goes directly from the solid to the gaseous
state
2. Reasons for sublimation
a. Solids have vapor pressure, but it is normally very low
b. Solids with little intermolecular attraction may have substantial vapor
pressures and be able to sublime at room conditions

D. Changes of State
1. Heating curve
a. Note that temperature remains constant during a phase change
b. Chemical bonds are not being broken during phase changes
2. Heat of fusion (Enthalpy of fusion, H
fus
)
a. Energy required to convert a mole of solid substance to a mole of
liquid substance
3. Normal melting point
a. The temperature at which the solid and liquid states have the same
vapor pressure under conditions where the total pressure is 1 atm
4. Normal boiling point
a. The temperature at which the vapor pressure of the liquid is exactly 1
atmosphere
5. Supercooling
a. Rapid cooling of a liquid may allow it to exist as a liquid at
temperatures below its normal melting point
(1) quick temperature change does not allow time for molecules to
become organized as they must be to become solids
(2) When crystallization does begin, it occurs rapidly
6. Superheating
a. Rapid heating of a liquid may allow it to exist as a liquid at
temperatures above the normal boiling point
(1) not enough high energy molecules accumulate in one place to
form bubbles
(2) when bubbles do form, they tend to be very large
(3) superheating can be avoided by adding boiling chips

a. Solid and liquid have identical vapor pressure
b. All three phases exist together in equilibrium
***Note that the "great outdoors" does not constitute a closed system. Seeing snow, water,
and water vapor on a day at the slopes does not constitute the triple point, since the system
is not closed and is not at equilibrium
2. Critical temperature
a. The temperature above which the substance cannot exist as a liquid,
regardless of how great the pressure
3. Critical pressure
a. The pressure required to produce liquefaction at the critical

13.4 Heterogeneous Equilibria
A. The position of a heterogeneous equilibrium does not depend on the amounts of
pure solids or liquids present
B. If pure solids or liquids are involved in a chemical reaction, their concentrations are
not included in the equilibrium expression for the reaction
C. Pure liquids are not the same as solutions, whose concentration can change
13.5 Applications of the Equilibrium Constant
A. Extent of a Reaction
1. Reactions with large equilibrium constants (K>>1) go essentially to
completion
a. Equilibrium position is far
to the right
a. Generally large, negative
E
2. Reactions with small equilibrium
constants (K<<1) consist of
mostly reactants
a. Equilibrium position is far
to the left
3. Time required to achieve
equilibrium
a. Related to reaction rate
and activation energy
b. Not related to the
magnitude of K
B. Reaction Quotient (Q)
1. Apply the law of mass action to initial concentrations in order to determine
what direction the rxn must move in order to achieve equilibrium

Q = the subscript zero indicates initial concentrations
2. IF Q is equal to K
a. The system is at equilibrium, no shift will occur
3. IF Q is greater than K
a. The system shifts to the left, consuming products and forming
reactants to reach equilibrium
4. IF Q is less than K
a. The system shifts to the right, consuming reactants and forming
products until equilibrium is reached

13.6 Solving Equilibrium Problems
A. Procedure for Solving Equilibrium Problems
1. Write the balanced equation for the reaction
2. Write the equilibrium expression using the law of mass action
3. List the initial concentrations
4. Calculate Q, and determine the direction of the shift to equilibrium
5. Define the change needed to reach equilibrium, and define the equilibrium
concentrations by applying the change to the initial concentration
6. Substitute the equilibrium concentrations into the equilibrium expression,
and solve for the unknown
7. Check you calculated equilibrium concentrations by making sure they give
the correct value of K
B. Treating Systems That Have Small Equilibrium Constants
1. The small value of K and the resulting small shift to the right to reach
equilibrium allows for simplification of the math
13.7 Le Chatelier's Principle
A. Statement of Le Chatelier's Principle (very important!)
1. If a change is imposed on a system at equilibrium, the position of the
equilibrium will shift in a direction that tends to reduce that change
B. The Effect of Change in Concentration
1. If a reactant or product is added to a system at equilibrium, the system will
shift away from the added component (it will attempt to "use up" the added
component)
2. If a reactant or product is removed from a system at equilibrium, the system
will shift toward the removed component (it will attempt to "replace" the
removed component)
C. The Effect of a Change in Pressure
1. Ways to change pressure
a. Add or remove a gaseous reactant or product
(1) covered above
b. Add an inert gas (one not involved in the reaction)
(1) An inert gas increases the total pressure but has no effect on
the concentrations or partial pressures of the reactants or
products
c. Change the volume of the container
(1) When the volume of the container holding a gaseous system is
reduced, the system responds by reducing its own volume.
This is done by decreasing the total number of gaseous
molecules in the system
N
2
(g) + 3H
2
(g) 2NH

(g) shifts to the right to decrease
the total molecules of gas present
(2) When the container volume is increased, the system will shift
so as to increase its volume
N
2
(g) + 3H
2
(g) 2NH
3
(g) shifts to the left to increase
the total number of molecules of gas present
5
D. The Effect of a Change in Temperature
1. An increase in temperature increases the energy of the system. Le
Chatelier's principle predicts that the system will shift in the direction that
consumes the energy
a. For an exothermic rxn, energy is a product. The rxn will shift to the
left to use up the excess energy
b. For an endothermic rxn, energy is a reactant. The rxn will shift to the
right to use up the energy
2. A decrease in temperature will cause a system shift in the direction that
"replaces" the lost energy

same procedures introduced in Chapter 14. This is not a new type of
problem."
2. "When a strong acid or base is added to a buffered solution, it is best to deal
with the stoichiometry of the resulting reaction first. After the stoichiometric
calculations are completed, then consider the equilibrium calculations. This
procedure can be presented as follows:

a. Color change occurs as the proton is lost or acquired
C. Using Indicators
1. Indicator color changes will be sharp, occurring with the addition of a single
drop of titrant
2. Suitable indicators must be selected based on the equivalence point
a. Strong acid-strong base titrations may use indicators with end points
as far apart as pH 5 and pH 9
b. Titration of weak acids or weak bases requires more careful selection
of an indicator with appropriate transition interval
