### #6925Personal Statements

Posted by on 10 October 2004 - 10:42 AM in Course Choices

I was so worried about doing my statement, but when I started writing it I had to cut stuff out of it because I had so much to write. So don't worry about it.

### #6922HELP! with this question

Posted by on 10 October 2004 - 10:34 AM in Mathematics

A rectangular flag is to have trimming attached along 3 of its sides. The length of the trimming is 240 centimetres.

If x centimetres is the length of the flag, show that the area of the flag, A square centimetres, is given by A(x) = 2x (120-x).

Also can anyone help with this fraction it has puzzled me because my final answer has came out weird:

9/1 x 1/81 - 2/1 x 1/9

### #6886Help!

Posted by on 09 October 2004 - 09:28 AM in Chemistry

Hey,

Can someone help me with these questions please:

An element has the electron arrangement 2,8,18,18,8,2

What will the main type of bonding be between its atoms?

Why does this electron have a higher boiling point thatn its neighbour with an electron arrangement 2,8,18,18,8,1?

CH4 and CF4 are both polar molecular compounds in which the moclecules both have the same tetrahedral shape.

Which would you expect to have the higher boiling point and why?

The HCF3 molecule also has a tetrahedral shape and its boiling point is higher than that of CH4 and CF4. Suggest a reason for this.

Silicon dioxide and carbon dioxide have similar names and similar formulae. Yet these two compounds are very different in their properties.
Explain in terms of bonding and structure why silicon is a high melting point solid and carbon dioxide is a gas at room temperature.

SiO2 CO2

about the glasgow student helpers i can't really say because i didn't really have much contact with them but they did seem very clinical in their approach to us tho

They were very cheeky, I asked one of them how to get to Cali University from Glasgow Uni and he just went 'Why would I know anything about that University'

### #6196Do I Have A Chance

I'm pretty sure that you could pass them. I know people who have stuffed up in S5 but then really put the work in in S6 and got the grades they needed.  You've got a good chance of getting Chemistry and History anyway since you're resitting. You must be quite good at math and english to pass the Int2's so there's no reason why you shouldn't get the grades in them. Just really work hard all year and don't forget what you need. I did that last year and it worked for me. If you need any help just ask, good luck!

Thank You
