D. Normal bicarbonate (HCO3)
Draw a reaction coordinate diagram for an exothermic reaction that occurs in a single step. Identify the activation energy and the net energy change for the reaction on this diagram. Draw a second diagram that represents the same reaction in the presence of a catalyst, assuming a single-step reaction is involved here also. Identify the activation energy of this reaction and the energy change. Is the activation energy in the two drawings different? Does the energy involved in the two reactions differ?
In a high-pH aqueous solution, indicate whether each of the following amino acids has (1) a net positive charge of +2 (2) a net positive charge of +1 (3) a net charge of zero (4) a net negative charge of -1 or (5) a net negative charge of -2.
b. Glutamic acid
At rest, a rocket has an overall length of L. A garage at rest (built for the rocket by the lowest bidder) is only L/2 in length. Luckily, the garage has both a front door and a back door, so that when the rocket flies at a speed of v=0.866c, it fits entirely into the garage. However, according to the rocket pilot, the rocket has length L and the garage has length L/4. How does the rocket pilot observe that the rocket does not fit into the garage?
