**Art Appreciation**

Discuss how art was used as a vehicle for propaganda, and whether such use is present in the works of Höch, Grosz, and Picasso. Use one example from Gardner's Art through the Ages and one from the Internet.

**Calculus - Riemann Sum**

Given a function f(x) = squr(3 + 2x), on [-1,1], subdivided into 4 equally large intervals, calculate the Riemann sum SR4 = 4Ei=1 f(xi)delta(x). my attempt at the solution: [-1,1], a = -1 and b = 1 delta(x) = 1 - (-1)/n = 2/n xi = a + delta(x)i xi = -1 + 2/n(i) so after adding...

Solve the differential equation dy/dx = -xe^y and determine the equation of the curve through P(1,2) I tried solving the differential equation and I get y = log(x^2/2 + C). Is this correct? Now I forgot how to find the equation. Thank you!

oh okay, well in that case there's no change? Nothing happens to the ethanol and we get the same K constant that we had previously?

oh this is just a theoretical question. It's about the hydrolysis of ethyl acetate, it gives ethanol and acetic acid as the products

**Chemistry**

okay thanks Dr.Bob, that's exactly what I did too.

*August 3, 2012*

**Chemistry**

because it's a 1:1 ratio for all, then at rxn, we would have -x for both EtAc and H2O and + x on the right, so x = 0.03045. Is this correct?

*August 3, 2012*

**Chemistry**

does it mean that because acetic acid has 0.03045 mol at equilibrium that x = 0.03045 mol? So then Ethanol would also have 0.03045 mol at eq and EtAc and H20 would both be their initial [conc] - x?

Yes I see my mistake now, because they first ask to find the moles of NaOH used, so would it simply be 0.015 mol? If I remember you had a density of HCl solution and the mass of that solution was mass = volume x density = 5 mL x density in g/mL = ? g. You can estimate the mass...

(b) deltaG < 0 , are product-favored and occur with rapid transformation of reactants to products. HOw is this incorrect? deltaG < 0 is product-favored and is rxn forward. Thank you

*May 23, 2012*

So when there's a spontaneous reaction, deltaS is > 0 , I confused that with increase. I still don't see how it's incorrect

Explain why each of the following is incorrect: (a) Entropy increases in all spontaneous reactions. Wouldn't (a) be actually correct? Because when there's a spontaneous reaction, you have less stable molecules and more disorder. It will be lower in some reactions than ...
