Review Handout & Problem Set #10
Exam #1 will be on Friday, April 22, in class. Simple calculators OK, no programmable
calculators of any sort allowed…see course prospectus.
Students will be seated according to the EXAM SEATING CHART posted in the
Information section. Be sure to get to class on time, with PRIOR knowledge of
1) Coverage. The exam will cover what we have done in class though and including
WEDNESDAY’s lecture. This, thus includes: a) your lecture notes; b) Chapters
12,13,14, and parts of Ch 15 (mostly likely sections 1-3). However, you only need
to know and be able to use those parts of Ch 12 which you need for work in
Chapters 13,14,15, and in problems on homework. i.e. I won’t ask any
“probability” questions except in the context of applications to statistical
2) How to review.
a) redo and understand all homework! Although some sets are not back (but they
should be soon) you have many sets back, and the solutions through SET #6 are now
posted. Solutions to Set #7 will be posted by 1pm Monday, Set #8 will be posted at
5pm Wedneseday…so NO LATE SET #8’s will be accepted for credit.
N.B. At least ‘one’ homework problem will appear on your exam, although
perhaps in slightly modified form, and perhaps with “conceptual questions”
b) work ALL of the example problems (i.e. the ones in the “yellow” boxes) in
chapters 13,14, and appropriate parts of Ch 15.
N.B. At least ‘one’ exam problem will be one of these “worked examples” from
ER, although perhaps in slightly modified form, and perhaps with “conceptual
(As we have been discussing Latin, as in QED, note well that N.B. is short for “note
bene” which means “note well!” That is Pay ATTENTION to these hints.)
3) The Thursday Tutorial will be “exam review”…namely I will both “overview”
what we have done, and work sample problems.
4) Review Problems, Problem Set#10: after redoing all prior problems try to work
the following “review problems”. We will discuss in class whether you want to
hand this set “in” on Friday (before the exam starts) for credit, or just do it and
savor its value as you study. If the class votes to do this for credit, it will count as
two problem sets. I never post solutions to review sets, so don’t expect me to do
so. An important part of your studying is to be able to work problems “without
seeing the answer”…after all, you won’t have the answers to work from on an
a) work problems 13.2; 13.7; 13.13 from Ch 13 in ER
b) work problems 14.9; 14.19; 14.22; 14.25 from Ch 14 in ER
c) work problems 15.8 and determine CV in addition to E, the internal energy (which
ER call “U”). Standard conditions are “one mole at 0 oC, and 1 atm, which
implies a volume of 22.4L, and 15.11(calculate the contributions to Cv per mole
of Fe in the gas phase: how does this compare to the contribution to Cv from
“translation” in %?) from Ch 15 in ER
