#6196 Do I Have A Chance

Posted by gary on 11 September 2004 - 12:39 PM in New Sixth Years

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!

#6886 Help!

Posted by gary 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

#7916 Help With Questions

Posted by gary on 24 October 2004 - 09:54 AM in Chemistry

The mass of one mole of aluminium is 27g.
What is the mass of one aluminium atom?

What volume of Carbon dioxide is produced when 10cm3 of ethane is burnt in pure oxygen?

What volume of hydrogen is produced when 2g of magnesium reacts with excess hydrochloric acid according to the equation (assume the molar volume is 24 litres)

The combustion of ethan can be summarised by the equation

C2H6(g) = 3 1/2 02(g) gives 2CO2(g) + 3H20(g)

If air is 20%, by volume of oxygen how much air is needed to completely burn 10 litres of ethane?

I got 18/30 for my textual analysis and I was really happy with that as the previous poems we looked at I had no clue how to answer the questions.

Thank God it is not in the final exam.
