AP Chemistry
Final Exam study guide

The 2008-09 Final Exam is not yet written. When it has been written, a study guide will be posted here.

In the meantime, here's the review sheet for MHS AP Chemistry final exams from the 2004-08 school years:

[Updated 10 June 2005]
The Exam
The final exam will cover questions from Chapters 9 through 16.  There are 50 questions selected from the computer test bank that goes with the text.  These questions are very similar to the syllabus/homework problems from the text.  An ideal study method would be to review your tests from these chapters to see what was emphasized, then go over the homework problems from these chapters.  The student study guide is an excellent source of concise information and clear explanations.

A few of the problems will reflect lab experiments we have carried out during the year, and there are five "free-response" questions so I can see and grade your work

What to Bring
To take the exam, you will need a scientific calculator, several number 2 pencils (there may not be a sharpener available), and a good eraser.  All other materials will be provided.  You should also bring your textbook, lab book, and student work guide.  Students who do not return issued books will be billed for their replacement costs; if this bill has not been paid grades will be withheld and graduation may be jeopardized.

Seniors with an "A" average are exempt from the exam.  To determine if you are exempt, you can do one of two things:
Add up your term averages
Multiply by 2
Add you midterm score
Divide by 9
If the answer is > 89.5, you are exempt.
OR Ask your teacher.

Topic List - I may miss something, but here is a general list:
gases & properties order of reaction
gas laws (PV = nRT) rate laws
manometers half-life, 1st order
MW of gas reaction energy graphs
partial pressure equilibrium
Graham's law forward & reverse rates
Kinetic-Molecular Theory equilibrium constants
intermolecular forces Kp, Kc, Kw
hydrogen bonding, dipole - dipole, etc. hetero- & homogeneous
Concentration: molar, molal, etc. ICE problems
"equivalents" le Chatlier's principle
solubility acids, bases, neutral
colligative properties pH, pH scale, pOH
reaction rates - forms of expressing conjugate acid/base pairs
