    Catalyst solution for a gas range?

    Please bear with me here. I'm 68 and haven't had chemistry since around 1967, or studied it since. ( though I have found what I learned, to be occasionally useful ) We have a cheapo GE gas range, that came with this modular house. Several times over the years, I couldn't see the flame burning...

    catalyst?

    Hello everyone! I have to fill in the blanks for 1 and 2! i believe the answer to number 1 is 2-chlorobutane, but for number 2 i am a bit confused with the cu. Could it be ethylmethyl ether? i feel like the cu is part of dehydrogenation reaction? thoughts! thank you:)

    Platinum Catalyst

    Here's the question I'm stuck on: Two moles of H2 gas and one mole of O2 gas are mixed at 25 C. Although the K for this reaction under these conditions is very large (1.3*10^83), nothing happens. When a piece of platinum is added, however, the gases react rapidly. Fully explain the role of...
