Equilibrium : CalcRxnQuotient (13 Variations) In an experiment, 4.44 mol of SO_{2}, 7.93 mol of O_{2} and 4.03 mol of SO_{3} are placed in a 2.0L reaction vessel at a certain temperature. Calculate the reaction quotient, Q, for the reaction as written:

What is the calculated reaction quotient, Q? {2:NUMERICAL:=2.1e-1:1e-2#Correct! ~%50%2.1e-1:5e-2#Close but not quite right}

If K_{c} for this reaction at the temperature of the experiment is 3.7 x 10^{3}, will the reaction move toward the left or toward the right? {1:MULTICHOICE:left#Sorry, that's wrong.~=right#Correct!}

Cross-Proportions: A Conceptual Method for Developing Quantitative Problem-Solving SkillsElzbieta Cook and Robert L. Cook This paper focuses attention on the cross-proportion (C-P) method of mathematical problem solving, which was once widely used in chemical calculations. We propose that this method regain currency as an alternative to the dimensional analysis (DA) method, particularly in lower-level chemistry courses. In recent years, the DA method has emerged as the only problem solving mechanism offered to high-school and general chemistry students in contemporary textbooks, replacing more conceptual methods, C-P included.

Encouraging Meaningful Quantitative Problem SolvingJeff Cohen, Meghan Kennedy-Justice, Sunny Pai, Carmen Torres, Rick Toomey, Ed DePierro, and Fred Garafalo This paper describes the efforts of a group of teachers to help college freshman chemistry students and high school science students to improve their problem-solving skills. The presentation includes several sets of questions intended to elucidate ideas and to involve the reader in the process of reflecting upon his or her own problem-solving strategies.
