Know how to balance a nuclear reaction.

Know the definitions and differences in the various types of nuclear decay/radiation types: fusion, fission, alpha decay, beta decay, positron emission, gamma rays/emission.

Know the definition of binding energy and how that relates to \(E = mc^2\).

\(a {\rm A} + b {\rm B} \rightarrow c {\rm C} + d {\rm D}\)

\({\rm reaction \; rate} =\) \(-{\Delta[{\rm A}]\over a\Delta t} = -{\Delta[{\rm B}]\over b\Delta t} = {\Delta[{\rm C}]\over c\Delta t} = {\Delta[{\rm D}]\over d\Delta t}\)

\({\rm rate} = k[{\rm A}]^x[{\rm B}]^y\cdots\)

\([{\rm A}]_0 - [{\rm A}] = kt \hskip24pt t_{1/2}={[{\rm A}]_0\over 2k}\)

\(\ln\left({[{\rm A}]_0 \over [{\rm A}]}\right) = kt \hskip24pt t_{1/2}={\ln2\over k}\)

\({1\over[{\rm A}]} - {1\over[{\rm A}]_0} = k t\hskip24pt t_{1/2}={1\over k[{\rm A}]_0}\)

\(k = A\,e^{-E_{\rm a}/RT}\)

\(\ln k = {-E_{\rm a}\over R}\left({1\over T}\right) + \ln A\)

\(\ln\left({k_2\over k_1}\right) = {E_{\rm a}\over R}\left({1\over T_1} - {1\over T_2}\right)\)

A Lewis base donates an electron pair (the ligand). A Lewis acid accepts an electron pair (the metal atom or cation). This is a dative bond in general although with metals and ligands the name coordinate covalent bond is more common.

monodentate charged: the halides, hydroxide, cyanide

monodentate neutral: ammonia, water, pyridine (py), carbon monoxide

bidentate charged: oxalate (ox)

bidentate neutral: ethylenediamine (en), bipyridine (bpy), phenanthroline (phen)

PLUS - if given in a formula, you should be able to recognize other ligands and their denticities.

Remember that the ligands provide a core set of electrons. For example, in a octahedral complex, the ligands provide 12 electrons. The metals then add to the ligand number via their *d*-orbital electrons and possibly their *s*-orbital electrons depending on the charge.
