If you were using a 50-millimeter camera lens and changed the lens aperture from 8.0 to 5.6, about how much LESS light would the lens be allowing to pass through it:
1) 60% less
2) 50% less
3) 35% less
4) 22% less
50% LESS (Solution: 5.6/8.0 = 0.70; (0.70)2 = 0.49 ~ 50%)

What is the mechanism for Grignard Synthesis of an alcohol?
The organometallic compound disassociates to a positive metal halogen, and a negative R group. The double bond of a Carbonyl dissolves to a single bond, leaving a partial positive charge on the Carbon and a partial negative charge on the Oxygen. The negative R group acts as a nucleophile and attacks the partial positive of the Carbonyl Carbon. After an acid bath, the negative Oxygen is protonated, forming an alcohol. The hydroxyl group from a dissociated water molecule adds to the metallic halogen ion, forming a halo-metallic hydroxide.
