# The federal limit for cadmium in drinking water is 0.010 mg per liter of solution. What is the molar concentration of a Cd solution that has reached the limit?

Answer: Thank you for posting your question here. The molar concentration of a Cd solution that has reached the limit is  8.89x10^-8 mols/L. The equation to be used  M=n/L to solve the above problem. Below is the solution:

.010mg/L = .00001g/L
.00001g / 112.41g/mol = 8.89x10^-8 mols/L

Explanation:

Hello,

In this case, one can assume 1L as the volume of the solution, so we've got 0.010mg of cadmium. Now, as we're asked to know its molarity, one computes the moles of cadmium as follows:

Now, one obtains the molar concentration (molarity) as shown below:

Best regards.

What is the electron pair geometry for a phosphine molecule, PH3? A) tetrahedral B) bent C) linear D) trigonal pyramidal E) none of the above

The electron pair geometry of a phosphine, PH3, molecule is tetrahedral, though the molecule itself takes on a trigonal pyramidal shape due to the presence of a lone pair of electrons on the phosphorus atom.

### Explanation:

The electron pair geometry for a phosphine molecule, PH3, is tetrahedral. In PH3, the phosphorus atom is the central atom surrounded by three hydrogen atoms. However, it is important to note that the phosphorus atom also has a lone pair of electrons. The lone pair occupies more space than bonding pairs, causing the molecule to take on a trigonal pyramidal molecular geometry. Despite the molecular geometry, the electron pair geometry is considered tetrahedral because it accounts for all regions of electron density, including lone pairs.

The electron pair geometry for a phosphine molecule (PH3) is tetrahedral. This refers to the spatial arrangement of regions of electron density around the central atom, phosphorus, which is bonded to three hydrogen atoms and has one lone pair of electrons.

### Explanation:

The electron pair geometry for a phosphine molecule, PH3, is best described as tetrahedral. Even though the PH3 molecule is not tetrahedral, the electron pair geometry refers to the spatial arrangement of regions of electron density around the central atom, in this case, phosphorus. Phosphorus in the PH3 molecule is bonded to three hydrogen atoms and has one lone pair of electrons. These four regions of electron density adopt a tetrahedral arrangement to minimize electron-electron repulsion. Please note that the molecular structure of PH3 is trigonal pyramidal as lone pairs are not included while determining the molecular geometry.

Rank each of the following gases in order of increasing Urms assuming equivalent amounts and all gases are at the same temperature and pressure where 1 is the lowest Urms Gas 1: H2S Gas 2: He Gas 3: NF3 Gas 4: H20

NF3< H2S< H2O< He

Explanation:

The average speed of a gas depends on the relative molecular mass of the gas. Lighter gases have a greater average speed and move faster than heavier gases.

Hence, we need to arrange these gases listed in the question in order of decreasing molecular mass in order to obtain the order of increasing Urms assuming equivalent amounts and all gases are at the same temperature and pressure.

Hence; NF3< H2S< H2O< He

The rank in order of increasing Urms for the gases given, assuming the same amount, temperature, and pressure is as follows: NF₃, H₂S, H₂O, and He.

### Explanation:

Urms, or root mean square speed, of a gas, depends on the molar mass of the gas and the temperature. It is determined by the formula Urms = sqrt(3kT/M), where k is Boltzmann's constant, T is temperature, and M is the molar mass. The greater the molar mass, the lower the Urms. Looking at the molar masses of the gases H₂S (34 g/mol), He (4 g/mol), NF₃(71 g/mol), and H₂O (18 g/mol), we can rank them in order of increasing Urms as NF₃ 1st), H₂S (2nd), H₂O (3rd), and He (4th).

Which beat describes heat

I assume you mean which best describes heat.

The answer is The energy transferred between samples of matter because of a difference in their temperatures.

To explain this further, heat is total energy of an object, temperature is average energy. The change in temperature between two objects is called heat!

Think about transfers of heat in everyday terms: if you put an ice cube in your tea (I don't know, just bear with me), the cold does not transfer to the tea. The heat of the tea is transferred to the ice cube! And this is clearly a difference in heat.

Is A and C correct?

I'm a little unsure of this question, but is it right?
