Greetings, gierczakacc:, I'd like to welcome you and everyone new to the Chemical Forums,  but I want to ask you to review our Forum Rules{click} (http://www.chemicalforums.com/index.php?topic=65859.0).  You already accepted the rules when you signed up for our forum, and you have to follow them, whether you agree with them or not, or even if you're unaware of them.

We want to see you do some work, on your own, and we'll help.  We don't dump complete answers, not for anyone, not for a high school student, nor a hard-working professional, nor even the home chemist working on their newest invention.

and why?

These are the answers to your questions, and there are also references to further topics you should study.  If you can't understand these explanations, then you'll have to find some textbooks to study.

If you meant to post here in the sub-forum dedicated to the Chemistry Olympiad, then you should know that without learning the fundamentals, you won't actually be ready for the examination.
