Organic chemistry is notorious for being one of the hardest subjects in college. Don't panic though. Here is a list of how to best study and ace your organic chemistry class.
1. Read the chapter, paying most attention to the in chapter problems. Some students even skip reading the chapter since problems practicing is most important for organic chemistry. You can try to do the in-chapter problems on your own and then chec...
To convert moles into mass, we first need to find the molar mass of the compound given. This can be done by looking at the mass of each element in the periodic table and then multiplying each mass by the number of atoms of that element in the compound. Molar mass has the units grams/mol which allows to convert between moles and grams.
To go from moles to grams, we need to multiply the numbe...
During which phase change does the entropy of a sample of H2O increase?
(1) H2O(g) → H2O(l)
(2) H2O(g) → H2O(s)
(3) H2O(l) → H2O(g)
(4) H2O(l) → H2O(s)
Answer and Explanation:
Entropy represents disorder in chemistry. Universe wants to be as disordered as possible and therefore increasing disorder, or entropy, is favorable. Now, lets lookout phases to figure out what is more d...

Scientists Investigate Sex Determination in Alligators
The sex of some reptiles, including the American alligator, is determined by the temperature at which the eggs are incubated. For example, incubating them at 33°C produces mostly males, while incubation at 30°C pro...
