If the solution of problem 37 is added to an aqueous solution of barium chloride, a precipitate
forms. Provide the net ionic reaction for this precipitate formation.
4. Ozone, O3, is a component of photochemical smog in the lower atmosphere but essential in
the upper atmosphere where it absorbs harmful UV radiation which would otherwise burn us.
Using (a) drawing(s) discuss the molecular geometry of ozone being sure to address
comparative bond lengths, approximate bond angle and dipole moment direction.
5. The HCH bond angle in methane (CH4) is 109.5° the HNH bond angle in ammonia (NH3) is 107°
and the HOH bond angle in water is 104.5°. Why the decrease in the idealized tetrahedral bond
angle of 109.5° in going from methane to ammonia to water?
