    URGENT QUESTION!!!
    What are the SI units to use in the Pv=nRT equation?? i have seen so many different websites and textbooks say different things. aaaaargh. I thought it was
    P= Pa (not KPa)
    v= m3 (not dm3)
    n is obviously just n, same as R and T is definitely in Kelvin.
    Please someone help. Its confusing me and annoying me because the equation isn't hard.

    Electronegativity is the attraction of a atom to get the shared pair of electrons, for which you need to know how it changes (increases going up and increases going from left to right)

    Periodicity is the repeating trends across each period of the periodic table (you need to know first ionisation energy increases across a period, the trend in melting and boiling point and atomic radius)

    Formation of pi bonds I have no clue so help?
    Thanks.

    I just had look and pi bonds are formed after a sigma bond has been formed and is formed by the p-orbitals overlapping above and below the carbon atoms

    Thank you guys. I though they were but some questions i have seen use dm3 and KPa?? oh well, in the exam today ill use m3 and Pa.

    Thank you so much

    Pressure is Pa (even though Pa is technically not SI units, it's derived from Jm^-3)
    Volume is m^3 (that is definitely from SI units)

    Don't want to confuse you so you might not want to read this:
    If you use kPa that is derived from Jdm^-3 so for volume you would use dm^3. it's technically not wrong.. But stick to Pa and m^3

    QUESTION :

    1.68g noble gas occupies volume of 500cm3 at RTP (298k and 100KPa). Identify noble gas.

    can you do this for me and put your workings please???

    Hey you know for the enthalpy calculations? When you're working out a question using formation values in the table is it product - reactants, and combustion values reactants - products and change of reaction/ bond enthalpy products - reactants??? I always get confused on which one is which

    Ok that is using RTP, which is not 298K and 100kPa (that is STP)

    At RTP, n = volume / molar volume
    So n = 500 / 24000 = 0.0208 mol
    Also, n= mass / molar mass
    So molar mass = mass / n
    So Mr = 1.68 / 0.0208 = 80.77

    Since it's a noble gas, it must be krypton (closest molar mass)

    This is how I would do it but for some reason it doesn't seem right, anyone?

    500/24000 = 0.0208 mol (3sf)

    1.68 / 0.0208 = 80.8 g mol-1

    Kr due to different isotopic abundances

    that is correct answer in book. but they have worked it out using Pv=nRT

    On one of the carbons in C=C there are the same groups (2 hydrogens) and therefore, there is no priority group

    From what I've learnt, for gases at RTP, use n= volume / molar volume

    I think its always reactants - products
