(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of Chemistry

Consider the hypothetical situation in which a scientist is investigating an unknown substance. He has found that this substance is composed only of the chemical elements carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen and has typical properties of a covalent compound. Additionally, he has discovered that the ratio between the atoms in a molecule of this substance is 1 carbon atom, 2 hydrogen atoms, and 1 oxygen atom. With this information, answer the following: a) Identify the molecular formula of this substance; b) Based on the molecular formula, classify the bond between the atoms as polar or nonpolar; c) Determine the geometry and polarity of the molecule.

Question 4:


A scientist is conducting an experiment using a calorimeter to determine the specific heat capacity of a certain metal. The metal piece, initially at a temperature of 100°C, is dropped into a calorimeter containing 200g of water initially at 25°C. The final equilibrium temperature of the system is observed to be 27°C. Given that the specific heat capacity of water is 4.18 J/g°C and ignoring heat losses to the surroundings, what is the mass of the metal piece? Use the principle of conservation of energy and the formula for heat transfer Q=mcΔT, where m is mass, c is specific heat capacity, and ΔT is the change in temperature.
