ASK A CHEMISTRY PROFESSOR (Emeritus)

If, after spending some time on a chemistry problem, you are unable to make progress, feel free to e-mail your question to Steven Murov at:

 murovs@yosemite.edu  

For reasonable questions that can be answered via e-mail, I will make an attempt to show you how to solve the problem.  Please do not play a game of "stump the Professor" as the challenge will be all too easy.  This is a trial run and this site will remain active as long as it is productive.  I hope I can help you understand chemistry and appreciate its importance.  Learning chemistry is a challenge but learning should get easier as you proceed.  With the proper attitude, solving chemistry problems is a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

Please note that the first step in many chemistry problems is a calculation of the number of moles (from, mass, volume and molarity, PV/RT, balanced equation, etc.) Also one of the most straightforward approaches to solving problems involves the use of dimensional analysis (also known as factor label or unit conversion method).
