dex, using Facebook Live to broadcast his breakdown over thermodynamics in the library: the ideal gas law is A LIE!!!!!! NO GAS OPERATES UNDER IDEAL CONDITIONS!!!! ENTHALPY IS ALWAYS INCREASING!!!!

nursey, in the comments: lmao u wild wya tho?

Life is not an ideal gas. Life is a real gas.

(Click here for Ideal gas law part 2)

Hey again! I’m sitting in the children section of the library, so I decided that kids running around in a room would be a good way to visualize the ideal gas equation. Hope this helped you :D Stay tuned for part two, where I explain how to solve problems concerning the ideal gas law.

Remember the main difference between real gases and an ideal gas is that there are **no intermolecular forces** in an ideal gas - meaning there is no liquid phase when you cool it down. A real gas is similar to an ideal gas under **high temperature** and **low pressure**. :D

P.S. Lately I’ve started receiving a lot of requests, but unfortunately I do not have time to draw them all at once - so I’m only going to draw the ones that are most requested, I’m really sorry!

Hello Studyblr Community,

Just wanted to send out a little note - a friendly reminder - that if you have **any** troubles in a chemistry course or chemistry related topic **feel free to send me a message**. While my studyblr is here for personal motivation to finish up my undergrad, it’s also here as a resource for anyone who struggles or needs some simple help in chemistry. So far I have taken **both general chemistries** which cover topics ranging from unit conversions, titrations, ideal gas laws, molecular geometry, and intermolecular forces, *The list continues and I have multiple study/cheat sheets for many of these topics since my lecture was student-based teaching. Also, I have completed the **first semester of organic chemistry** that includes resonance structures, chirality, nomenclature, SN1/2 and E1/2 reactions, and alcohol synthesis. Right now I am **enrolled in the second semester of organic chemistry** (currently making a solid B in case you wanted to know how reliable I am with my knowledge) and have covered ether synthesis, aromatic nucleophilic/electrophilic substitution, activation/deactivation on the aromatic ring, amine synthesis, aldehyde/keytone synthesis, carboxylic synthesis. Next semester I will begin **advance organic structure studies **that include UV spectrum, proton and carbon 13 NMR, mass spectrum, and IR spectrum. Though I am already confident with handling those instruments and can help anyone who needs an understanding of how to label peaks or knowing what an unknown compound contains. On top of that, I will be taking **analytical chemistry next semester** as well.

Of course, the list continues because **I will** **always try my best to answer any chemistry related questions that my followers have**. (Google does wonders for me and I have a good way of finding amazing study guides) So please don’t be shy when asking questions or correcting me when I’m wrong. I don’t have my degree yet in chemistry so I’m not always correct! :) Love you guys and keep up the good work. **[Link to my ask box]**

*It would be awesome if everyone could spread this little note so I can help anyone out who needs it. I hate to see students struggle in chemistry when I am currently on my way to becoming a teacher.

I definitely pronounce PV = nRT as “Piv Nert” to the point that sometimes I don’t even call it the ideal gas law, I just start talking about Piv Nert out of nowhere

Thermodynamics

*See previous posts about thermal physics*

Heat capacity *c* is a measure of the amount of thermal energy *Q* can be put into a system before we see a change in
its temperature Δ*T*. It is defined by the equation

where Δ*T* may be defined as Δ*T* = *T* - *T*_{0} for an initial temperature *T*_{0} and a final temperature *T*,
so

Therefore, if you put 5 J of energy into some volume of liquid, we’ll call it *X*, which is at an initial
temperature *T*_{0} = 20°C and observed its temperature change to *T* = 25°C then it would have a heat capacity
*c _{X}*

This is particularly useful for engineering purposes because a heat capacity can be used to characterise gases and
materials *etc*. For example, the specific heat capacity *c* of a material is found using its heat capacity per unit mass:

(note that this equation assumes that the heat capacity is independent of mass – *i.e.* for no phase
transitions).

The ideal gas is problematic

[image description: electrically charged luminescent xenon in a tube. text reads “let me be your ideal gas I can expand to fit your container”]

could you please ask your followers to click on the link/watch my final video project for chemistry and to give our video a thumbs up? the link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mC1wUoUMc8 . we get graded on how many views/likes we get, so I’d really appreciate it! :) thanks so much

So you guys should totally watch this chemistry video that raps about the ideal gas laws. :D

It helps out students, so that’s cool as well.

is this not ideal gas station aesthetics? god bless fountain square

Some late night reading and notes for tomorrow’s lecture ☺️👌

@csoandy now in the running for the best #DeflateGate inspired Brady jersey. #FreeBrady

“No why are you breaking up with me don’t leave I’m an ideal gas!”

“That’s the thing, honey….there’s just **no attraction**.”

Quantum Physics

*Cont’d from “Expectation value general form”*

The expectation value can be well understood by studying the mathematics applied to particular scenarios. In this post we will apply a quantum mechanic approach to find the expectation value of measurement.

This system is often known as the **infinite square well**.

Consider a particle with wavefunction in position representation given by

where *N *is a normalisation factor, confined to a 1-dimensional box in 0 ≤ *x *≤ *L*.

We measure its momentum – what is the expected value of this measurement?

Thus, we need to find the expectation value of momentum in the *x*-direction;

since we can assume that the particle is entirely contained within the range 0 ≤ *x *≤ *L *the limits can be adjusted to reflect this,

First, we’ll find the probability; |⟨ *x* | *ψ *⟩|^{2}:

and since we know that ⟨ *ψ | x* ⟩ = ⟨ *x | ψ* ⟩** *we can find the complex conjugate of the given expression. So, we find that

which can be multiplied by the original expression to find

and since *e*^{0} = 1,

Now we must find *p*_{x}. Let’s look at the eigen-equation of its operator:

whose calculation provides the eigenvalue *p*_{x}. We know that this operator is given by

which we can act onto the wavefunction to get

for which we can calculate the derivative

and we know that

so

implying that

Thus, combining these factors into the expectation value equation, we get

and so,

Hopefully, the square well scenario will be examined in much more detail in future posts − including solving the Schrödinger equation for different scenarios.
