math
What are the following symbols used in math sequences: a sub i, n, N? ai is the ith element of the sequence n is the value of i in the term you are refering to. For instance, 3,4,5,6 a3 is 5. That term corresponds to n=3 N is the number of terms in the sequence.

I cannot figure out how to work this stoichiometry problem with the given equation: Mg+2HCl-->MgCl2+H2 What volume of hydrogen is produced from the reaction of 50.0g of Mg and the equivalent of 75g of HCl What do you not understand about it? It is a limiting reagent problem...

How much does 1 molecule of bromine weigh? I know the atomic mass for bromine is 79.90 g but I do not know how to use it to figure out the weight of the molecule. The given answer is 2.654x10^-22 but I do not know how to get there. First, the molecule of bromine is Br2. Since ...

chemistry
How is the way metals form ions different from the way nonmetals form ions? Think about this. When Na, a metal, becomes an ion, what must it do? It has one electron in its outside shell. When Cl, a non-metal, forms an ion, what must it do? It has seven electrons in its outside...

chemistry
does chlorine or carbon have greater ionization energy? I would expect it to be harder to pull an electron away from 17 + charges on chlorine than 6+ charges on carbon; although the outer electron is farther away in Cl. You can look these things up in a table; I did and Cl has...

If you told us which vocabulary you are currently studying it could help narrow down the words. can someone help me unscramble these? it's in spanish. capetlusidr tabonca tishces tconserede well, i figured out all of the above, except for "tconserede" i'm ...

chemistry
What is the maximum number of hybrid orbitals a carbon atom can form? Is it 4 because carbon has 4 valence electrons? yes.

chemistry
How do you compare and contrast a chemical equation and an ionic equation? Is a chemical equation any equation while an ionic equation deals with the gain/loss of electrons? A chemical equation usually consists of what I call a molecular equation whereas an ionic equation (or ...

chemistry
What would the formula be for barium chloride dissolved in water? BaCl2(aq)

chemistry
Does this equation need to be balanced? AlCO3 => AlO+CO2 Also, how would this equation be balanced? NiCl+O2 => Ni2O3+Cl2O5 Neither equation you have is an equation so they can't be balanced. Do you mean aluminum carbonate. That would have the formula Al2(CO3)2. ...

Math
What is the maximum slope for a bridge on an interstate? Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "maximum slope interstate bridge" to get this possible source: http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:_pnq5Gew-asJ:www.modot.mo.gov/...

I am having trouble finding scholarly articles/essays on issues found in King Lear. Any suggestions? First look at this site for Themes and Motifs: http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/lear/ Then use a search to check articles on those themes. One is brutality... there has ...

chemistry
How does an ionic bond form between zinc and oxygen? Zn has two electrons in its outside shell and wants to give them away (which makes the next inner shell now the outer shell but is is full with eight electrons). Oxygen has six electrons in its outside shell and want to gain...

chemistry
What are the certain conditions when ionic compounds conduct an electric current? Why are ionic compounds not always used as conductors? Ionic compounds conduct an electric current when the ions are free to move about. This usally means they are in solution form (as ions) or ...

chemistry
How does an ionic bond form between zinc and oxygen? Zn has two electrons in its outside shell and wants to lose those two. Oxygen has six electrons in its outside shell and wants eight; therefore, oxygen takes the two electrons form Zn making the Zn with a +2 charge and ...

chemistry
The more reactive an atom, the higher its potential energy. Which atom has higher potential energy, neon or fluorine? Neon is hardly reactive at all. When it reacts, it will make news. Fluorine is a very reactive element. It is very difficult to keep it from reacting, often ...

chemistry
How could you make the reaction Cu(NO3)2 + NaCO3 -- CuCo3+NaNO3 balanced? You have the formula for sodium carbonate wrong> Na2CO3 The carbonate ion is -2 valence, and Na is +1. Now it will balance.

chemistry
what happens when solids, liquids, and gases are heated/cooled? Most expand if heated; contract if cooled. Solids, if heated high enough will melt and the liquid may occupy less volume than the solid. Likewise, liquids, if heated high enough, will boil and the volume of the ...

chemistry
What instrument is used to determine the mass and relative ambuandaces of small atomic particles? You may be thinking of the mass spectrometer. I'm not sure how small you are talking about but the mass spec is used to determine atomic masses and relative abundance of the ...

Brothers Karamazov
I do not understand why Dmitri originally doubted that Smerdyakov murdered Fyodor but later changed his mind and thought Smerdyakov murdered Fyodor. Be sure to go into www.sparknotes.com/lit and find this book under the B's -- then read the section called Analysis of Major...

chemistry
How are gases and vapors different? Most use gases and vapors interchangeably. I looked up both words in my copy of Webster's and found gas listed vapor as a synonym and vapor listed gas as a synonym. However, some of the definitions for vapor listed "particles as in ...
