Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We reviewed entropy in relation to number of moles, and why, in a mixture of one element at constant volume and pressure and temperature, we do not need to look at the state of each molecule at different states but estimate entropy from one molecule. It may be counter-intuitive, but the estimation is a snapshot picture of the mixture that can represent the whole of the mixture, because the volume, temperature and pressure are unchanged. Entropy is volume dependent. We also covered heat capacity associated with degrees of freedom."
"We covered bonding in polyatomic molecules using the simplified Huckel method. The student solved Huckel determinants and compared energy levels of similar molecules."
"During this session we mostly focused on partial differentiation and the various rules like the cyclic rule and the inverse rule and how to use them on the Van Der Waal's Equation. We also spent some time on fractions and finding the inverse of fraction addition. We also looked at how enthalpy and molar heat capacity are related and how both are related to internal energy and work. We ended the session by looking at test preparation strategies."
