The fictitious compound, arrhenium fluoride (AfH ), reacts with itself to form a dimer with the formula Ah2F2 . The reaction is second order in AhF. The value of the rate constant is 8.591x10-3 M-1s-1. What is the initial rate of reaction in a reactor filled with AhF to a concentration of 5.5M ? Express your answer in M.s-1.
Chemical analysis of a germanium crystal reveals indium at a level of 0.0003091 atomic percent. Assuming that the concentration of thermally excited charge carriers from the Ge matrix is negligible, what is the density of free charge carriers (free carriers/cm3) in this Ge crystal?
I have a diff problem .......Titanium (Ti) can be produced by the reaction of metallic sodium (Na) with titanium tetrachloride vapor (TiCl4). The byproduct of this reaction is sodium chloride (NaCl). Calculate the amount of titanium produced (in kg) when a reactor is charged with 73.0 kg of TiCl4 and 10.0 kg of Na.
Sulfur vapor is analyzed by photoelectron spectroscopy (PES). Measurements determine that photoelectrons associated with the 1st ionization energy of sulfur move with de Broglie wavelength λ=5.091 A˚. What is the maximum wavelength (in meters) of radiation capable of ionizing sulfur and producing this effect?
Not really, though it would be helpful. If you love science, specifically chemistry, but aren't a maths fan it is possible to a) get a place at a good university b) do well on the course.
At degree level, chemistry is roughly divided into three areas, organic, inorganic and physical. The first of these only require GCSE level maths for small parts of the course. Physical chemistry also largely only requires this level, but some integration/differentiation is necessary, and certain modules are more maths heavy. So well over two thirds of your degree would be science only, and the final third would be science with a bit of maths!
That said, having maths A-level is still advantageous, and some courses require it. Universities such as the University of Bath offer top up maths courses so you can learn just the bits you need when you get there.
If you also love maths, then you will enjoy chemistry, but why not consider chemical engineering? This is largely about designing factories to make chemicals on a large scale, but also devices such as solar cells, deodorant cans, and football stadiums.
