### What is the implication of having the internal energy equal the Gibbs free energy?

I came up with a hypothetical equation of state, where one of the consequences is that $U=G$, where $U$ is the internal energy and $G$ is the Gibbs free energy. I wanted to ask the chemists, is there ...

### Finding the structure based on spectra

I had to identify the structure of a drug based off the spectra I had. I suck at this. I gave it my best go and got some ugly structure, only to check it using a database and find out I was wrong. I ...

### Energy levels of combined orbitals

I saw the MO diagram for a NH3 molecule but couldn't understand why the combined atomic orbitals were in the positions they were, and if these positions were fixed. Why is the sigma anti bonding ...

### How does current start to flow when galvanic cell is first connected?

Using the Daniell Cell as an example, where in the steady state we expect zinc to be oxidised and copper to be reduced spontaneously due to the overall reduction in Gibbs free energy, how does the ...
