94.   If the coolant in a car requires 0.0855 kJ to evaporate C2H5OH and 0.55 kJ to evaporate the rest of the water in the coolant.  Based on this information, estimate if the spray of the coolant is effective.




1. London Forces – Forces with slight dipole moment (weak force) F-F

    Dipole-Dipole Interaction- Interactions between bonds. Usually non-metal bonds. CO2

    Hydrogen Bonding – Bonding a species with a hydrogen atom. (Strong bond) HCl


2. C6H5OH would have the highest boiling point because the bonds are stronger than the other.


3. Viscosity is the ability to move across the surface of water. When the temperature increase, the viscosity decrease and vise versa.


4. Viscosity increase temperature decrease. Viscosity decrease temperature increase.



a) gas

b) gas

c) liquid


6. Hydrogen bonding is when a hydrogen atom combines with a species that will increase the boiling point (HCl)


7. 6


29. -366.6kJ/mol





a) gas

b) liquid

c) gas


47. 630kJ


49. Gaseous state


51. See example in book chapter 12 figure 28 and 29.



a) Not on surface

b) Not on surface

c) Not on surface


61. Graphite


63.  A bond scheme is a schematic to see the different bonds a species can create. It is helpful to see different bond schematics to determine whether it is an acid or a base.


67. Si. A scale to determine the hardness of the element.


69. 5


71. Small 3-dimensional unit


73. 15.6g/cm^3


75. Diameter = 150pm Density = 13.4g/cm^3


77. 8 Corners of a given atom x 1/8 of the given atom's unit cell) + 1 additional lattice point = 2 atoms


79. See textbook page 535-537


83. Face center Cubic


94. Most of the energy is going into the water therefore the coolant spray is effective.
