MATH
true or false: log (x-y) = log (x) - log(y) I don't know the the first part, but looking at the second part, wouldn't log (x) - log (y) = log x/y so based on that the first part is false?

Suppose the annual expected mortality rate from coronary disease is 500 per 100,000 individuals. In a specific community of 600,000 individuals, how many deaths are expected to be attributed to coronary heart disease over a one year period? my work: 600,000/100,000=6 6x500= ...

Let 4xy^3 - x^2y= 5x - 6 - x^3 where y is a differential of X. Find y' in terms of x and y. I get: y'= -4y^3 - 2xy + 3x^2 -5 / x^2 -12xy^2 My answer handout shows the answer as positive. Which should it be, neg. or pos.? Thanks

How do I go from C-triple bond-C and end up with [(Z)-6 methylhept-2-enyl] benzene. I think the first step is adding NaNH3, but after that I'm lost.

chemistry
In deciding which has more entropy, would it be correct to say s<l<g<aq or s<l<aq<g I'm thinking the second one....

chemistry
gottem' both. thanks anyway. I'm sure I'll have more questions on down the road.

I figured out the Zinc problem, but still need some help with the other one.

chemistry
Balance each of the following redox reactions occurring in acidic aqueous solution.Express your answer as a chemical equation. Identify all of the phases in your answer. Zn(s) + Na(aq)-> Zn2+(aq)+Na(s) Cl-(aq) + 2NO3-(aq)->NO(g)+Cl2(g)

Explain why methanol spontaneously evaporates in open air at 25.0 . I know that a negative delta G means a spontanious reaction, but I don't think this is an adequate response to this question. I need a little more clarity about this. thanks

chemistry
Thank you so much! I see what I was doing wrong now. I need more practice with these type problems.

Calculate the percent ionization of a 0.15 formic acid solution in a solution containing 0.11 potassium formate. I have the formic acid Ka=1.8 *10^-4 When I solve for "x" I'm getting 1.1.44*10^-2 When I plug that into equation (x/0.15-x)*100, I'm getting 10.6...

This is from a "effect of pH on the solubility of Ca(OH)2" lab: If excess Ca(NO3)2 were present, what effect would it have on the solubility of Ca9OH)2? also, in a "effect of comlex ion formaiton on the solubility of NiCO3" lab": If HCl(aq) were added ...

I'm trying to understand the meaning of Tom Dent's poem "secret messages" (for Danny Barker). What is he trying to say? I'm thinking in the first stanza, the rain is washing away the past and "bad" history of blk mammies chained to praline shops...

chemistry
Based on their molecular structure, how can you figure out which is stronger between two oxyacids? Our textbook is really vague. I thought it had to do with which had more oxygen but one of the question compares CH3COOH and CCl3COOH so now I'm lost again.

chemistry
Thank you so much for ALL your help. You make it so simple and easy to understand.

chemistry
Based on their molecular structure, why are these acids thes stronger of the two binary acids given? HCl stronger than HF HF stronger than H2O H2Se stronger than H2S Is this because of bond strength due to placement on the table of elements? thanks

nevermind. I got it. it's 2.9 x 10^6 kg. but thanks anyway

If the pH of a 1.00in. rainfall over 1400 miles^2 (square) is 3.20, how many kg of sulfuric acid, H2SO4 are present, assuming that it is the only acid contributing to the pH?

chemistry
What is the pH of a solution with [H+]= 4.75 x 10^-5? I set this up as: pH= -log[H+] =-log (4.75 x 10^-5) = 4.32 Is this the correct to solve this? thanks

chemistry
That does help greatly. Thank you so much!

chemistry
Okay, thanks. The choices offered are phosphoric acid, citric acid, a oxalic. Let me make sure I'm understaning you, for example: I have an equilvenc point at 4.80mL and the pH at that point read 6.93. So I should go to 3.5 and the pH at that point is 5.69. So K= 5.69? or ...

We titrated Sprite with 0.1051 M standard NaOH. I've ploted three different titrations and am supposed to use the titration curve to identify the acid. I assume the acid is Citric since it's Sprite, but the lab manual also says "to recall that two K values must be...

Why should the volume of standard base (or acid) needed to reach the equilvalence point in a titration be more than 10.0 mL?

never mind. I figured it out. That is the correct anser, I didn't carry through with the derivitives.

calculus
find f'(x) for the following: f(x)= cos^5(4x-19) I keep getting 20cos^4(4x-19)sin, but the answer is supposed to be -20cos^4(4x-19)sin(4x-19). I can't seem to get there with derivatives

CALCULUS
THANK YOU!!!!!!

CALCULUS
find f'(x) for f(x) = x/(sqrtx^2+1) please show all the steps. I'm realy confused on this one. I get as far as setting it up using the quotient rule then I go blank. thanks

thank you!

For the ionization of a weak acid, HA: a) give the expression for Ka. b) after taking the log 10 of both sides ofthe quation in "a" sp;ve fpr pH. c) under what conditions would pH be equal to pK?

chemistry
Now I can. Thanks. Our labe manual is an "experiment" for next year's classes, so a lot of info has been left out in error and we have to fend for our selves. I really appreciate the help.

chemistry
find the pK for the following ionization constants, K= 1.8*10^-5 and 1.1*10^.2

Yes, it does. Thank you!

When acetone is added to saturated sodium chloride, the equilibrium shifts toward the right. What is the role of acetone in shifting the equilibrium toward the right? any help would be appreciated. My TA is of no use in explaining our lab experiments. thanks

Why would it not be useful to just use pure ethanol or pure ethylene glycol as an antifreeze since their normal freezing points are -114.1 C abd -12C respectively.
