    Organic chemistry
    15 September 2012Comment
    • andy chuks A clathrate, clathrate compound or cage compound is a chemical substance consisting of a lattice of one type of molecule trapping and containing a second type of molecule. The name clathrate complex used to refer only to the inclusion complex of hydroquinone, but recently it has been adopted for many other weak composites which consist of a host molecule... Read All

    Ammonia burns in oxygen as shown 4NH3(g) +3O2(g)-->2N2(g)+6H20(l) In an experiment 15 dm3 of ammonia are used and all the gas volumes are measured at room temperature and pressure a) What volume of oxygen in dm3 is required for complete combustion? b) What volume of nitrogen in dm3 will be produced?
    23 April 2012Comment
    • andy chuks The equation above shows the mole ratios of the reaction. 4 moles of ammonia (NH3) reacting with 3 moles of Oxygen (O2) produced 2 moles of Nitrogen (N2) and 6 moles of water (H2O). Note 1 mole of gas is = 22.4dm3 Therefore 4 moles of NH3 = 89.6 dm3 1) Since it was complete combustion, that means if 15dm3 of NH3 was burnt completely 0.67 moles of... Read All

    • andy chuks The Kinetic Theory of Matter states that matter is composed of a large number of small particles (atoms or molecules) that are in constant motion. The small particles are always in constant motion and collide with one another and their container. The degree of motion or collision of these particles is dependent of the state of the matter or the force... Read All

    • andy chuks A Polarimeter is a device for studying a transparent sample between crossed polarizing devices. A polarimeter is a scientific instrument used to measure the angle of rotation caused by passing polarized light through an optically active substance. Some chemical substances are optically active, and polarized (ie unidirectional) light will rotate either... Read All
