Posted by on 16 May 2005 - 01:34 PM in Problem Questions

Thats for paper 2.

Posted by on 04 December 2004 - 10:54 AM in Mathematics

R = 50x - x2 - 475

Rewrite R in the form a(x-p)2 + q by completing the square. stating the values of a,p and q clearly.

Hence state the maximum value of R and the corresponding value of x.

Complete the square on the expressions -x2 - 4x + 1

Hence show that, for the curve with the equation y= -1/3xcubed - 2xsquared + x -7, the gradient of the tangent cannot be greater than 5.

State the value of x for which the gradient of the tangent equals 5.

Thanks for any help.

Right the one about acids and equilibrium etc.

What other types of things could be asked for this?

I got a band 3 so I'm pretty sure I got 64%

### #9265Differentiation

Posted by on 14 November 2004 - 03:18 PM in Mathematics

Thanks for helping me with this, I think the bit I got stuck at was.

x3 = 8000
x = 20

How do you get 20 from that?

38% for a C I knew it wouldn't go anywhare near 50%.

### #24125LOGS!

Posted by on 17 May 2005 - 08:04 PM in Mathematics

log base 2 3

let x = log base 2 3

then 2 power x = 3

log e 2 power x = log e 3

x= ln3/ln2

I'm sorry if you can't understand this I can't get to work the icon thingys.

Basically you use this method for the first three.

### #10578Help With Questions

Posted by on 04 December 2004 - 10:46 AM in Chemistry

Which of the following is not true about benzene?

A It can decolourise bromine water
B All of the c-c bond lengths are equal
C It does not really undergo addition reactions
D The electrons in benzene are delocalised

When ethylbenzene is converted to phenylethene what is the reaction called?

A Reduction
B Dehydrogenation
C Dehydration
D Polymerisation
E Reforming

A compound C7 H12 02 reacts with sodium carbonate solution liberating carbon dioxide gas, and it also decolourises bromine water rapidly. What would be its structural formula.

The next two questions might be hard to understand as they are one of the grid questions.

How is and alcohol H-C-C-O-H produced from CH2 double bond CH2?

How would you convert and alcohol H-C-C-O-H into an addition bromine reaction (2 steps required)

Thanks for any help.

A residential home for elderly people has been investigating the performance of two different makes of Cleaner to use daily on the shower bases.
of the harmful

''Aquatec''was found to kill 98 percent of the harmful Bacteria present but another 2450 new Bacteria appeared daily.

''Magiclean'' was found to kill 96 present but another 2400 new Bacteria appeared daily.

Compare the effectiveness, in the long-term, of these two products as far as the eradication of harmful bacteria is concerned.

### #16051Extended Essay Question

Posted by on 13 March 2005 - 02:06 PM in History

What is the maximum amount of words that an essay can have.

My essay is currently at 2,000 words and my teacher still wants me to add in stuff about the Anschluss and the Czech Crisis. If I do this my essay will most likely go to about 2,500 which I think is far too much.

### #25161Help

Posted by on 19 May 2005 - 06:09 PM in Mathematics

I can't get the answers to these:

The function x^3-3x+2

find the co-ordinates of a,b,c

find the coordinates of the stationary point d and confirm its nature.

The functions f and g are given as:

f(x) = 4/x-2 and g(x) x+2

what is g(f(x))

Two functions, f and g are definded as follows:

f(x) = x-1 g(x) 1/x^2-1

find g(f(x)

### #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
