CHEM 2OA3 FINAL EXAM June 16, 2011 VERSION 1 NAME (First & Last): ___ _____________ ID#: _______________ Please circle your lab section/E in the table below: Group Thursday Exempt Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday AM I L01 L02 L03 L04 L05 L06 E Duration: 3 hours Instructor: Teri Gullon Instructions: This examination paper consists of 30 pages, containing 28 multiple choice (MC) questions, and 8 short-answer questions. A mini-periodic table, spectral correlation charts and scrap paper are provided on the last 4 pages. Feel free to detach these last pages for easier use. Answer all the MC questions on optical scan sheets. Each MC question is worth 1.5 marks and you will not be penalized for incorrect answers. Follow the instructions on the optical scan sheets, and the University rules for OMR exams which are reproduced on page 2. Failure to follow instructions may result in loss of credit. You are responsible for ensuring your copy of the test is complete, no pages are missing, that all answers are in the correct place, and that you follow the correct procedure for filling out the scan sheet. BRING ANY DISCREPANCY TO THE ATTENTION OF YOUR INVIGILATOR. All McMaster rules and procedures relating to Academic Dishonesty and Academic Integrity apply to this exam; all violations will result in a penalty. Students must do their own work. You MUST also complete ALL the information at the top of this page. Failure to do so may result in a loss of marks. Markers Only: Written Section Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6 Q7 Q8 /16 /4 /8 /12 /12 /5 /4 /5 MC total = /42 Written Section Total /66 Page 1 Continued on next page OMR EXAMINATION – STUDENT INSTRUCTIONS NOTE: IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THE ANSWER SHEET IS PROPERLY COMPLETED. YOUR EXAMINATION RESULT DEPENDS UPON PROPER ATTENTION TO THESE INSTRUCTIONS. The scanner, which reads the sheets, senses the bubble shaded areas by their non- reflection of light. A heavy mark must be made, completely filling the circular bubble, with an HB pencil. Marks made with a pen will NOT be sensed. Erasures must be thorough or the scanner will still sense a mark. Do NOT use correction fluid on the sheets. Do NOT put any unnecessary marks or writing on the sheet. 1. On SIDE 1 (red side) of the form, in the top box, print your student number, name, course name, and the date in the spaces provided, in pen. Then you MUST write your signature, in the space marked SIGNATURE. 2. In the second box, mark your student number and test or exam version number (1, 2, 3 …) by filling in the corresponding bubbles underneath, in pencil. 3. Answers: mark only ONE choice from the alternatives (A,B,C,D,E) provided for each question. The question number is to the left of the bubbles. Make sure that the number of the question on the scan sheet is the same as the number on the test paper. Begin answering Question # 1 using the first set of bubbles, marked “1”. Do Not use Side 2.

The following sentence has the format “Statement 1 BECAUSE Statement 2”. Decide whether statement 1 is true, whether statement 2 is true, and whether the REASONING (the ‘because’ relationship) between them is valid. Statement 1: “Both carbocations and carbon-centered free radicals follow the stability order tertiary > secondary > primary, but the order is REVERSED for carbanions” BECAUSE Statement 2: “Both carbocations and carbon-centered free radicals, being electron-rich, are stabilized by alkyl groups, whereas carbanions, being electron-deficient are destabilized by alkyl groups.” A) Statement 1 and Statement 2 are both correct, and the reasoning is valid B) Statement 1 and Statement 2 are both correct, but the reasoning is NOT valid C) Statement 1 is correct but Statement 2 is NOT correct D) Statement 1 is NOT correct, but Statement 2 is correct E) Statement 1 and Statement 2 are both NOT correct Page 12 Continued on next page 5.
