    em that unit 1 jan 2012 paper is missing the first question for some reason first question asks about covalent bonding if i remember rightly.
    Dative Covalent (co-ordinative, Coordinate Covalent Bonds) i believe .
    Also, i have been revising Unit 2 for quite a while if anyone can give me any tips or advice it would be much appreciated as of current i am just trying to remember by repetition.
    Extra Info: I didn't do well on Unit 1 due to panicking and failed to be not lazy and do revision over Christmas and played COD instead..that has stopped now

    For unit 2, best advise I can give Is just make sure you know the definitions from the small blue Collins book. My teacher went to one of the examiners questions days and he had with him the small blue Collins book and literally referred to most of the book throghout the day!

    the NT book...he didn't even use it once! It's too much 'how science works' not enough raw content!

    It's a larger paper, considerably. Just take it question by question and don't get too complacent! Revision for the exam is really needed

    nah it was asking for the definition of a covalent bond e.g sharing of a pair of electrons between 2 atoms. i did badly aswell though it was due to some personal problems, i got a D

    hehehe off the top of my head there is :
    2Fe2O3 + 3C ----> 4Fe + 3CO2
    WO3 + 3H2 ----> W + 3H2O
    Fe2O3 + 2Al -----> Al2O3 + Fe
    TiO2 + 2Cl2+ 2C ----> TiCl4 + 2CO
    TiCl4+4Na -----> Ti + 4NaCl
    2V2O5 + 5Si ------> 5SiO2 + 4V

    and electrolysis half equations:
    Al3+ + 3e- ------> Al
    2O2- ----> O2 + 4e-

    Hi guys, I've got a question on adding sulphuric acid to the halide solutions, as I wrote something in class but it conflicts with the answers found on a-level chemistry.

    So it's when you add bromide ions to sulphuric acid.

    Half equations:
    2Br- --> Br2 + 2e-
    2e- + 2H+ + H2SO4 --> SO2 + 2H2O

    Are these right?

    As I thought you just combine them, and you get 2Br- + 2H+ + H2SO4 --> Br2 + SO2 + 2H2O. But the a-level chemistry website says: 2H2SO4 + 2Br- --> SO2+ Br2 + 2H2O + SO4^2-.

    Can someone explain which one is correct please?

    I have more than that on just the first 2 pages of my booklets
    Will type them up later maybe so somebody can hopefully tell me i'm learning way more than i need to, :laugh:

    2Br- + 2H+ + H2SO4 --> Br2 + SO2 + 2H2O.
    Nothing wrong with those.

    Ah okay, so in an exam that'd be okay? What's the other thing talking about then, with the sulphate ions? Is that equation correct as well?

    So this is too much then?

    Extraction of Iron
    1) Coke reacts with hot air - very exothermic, responsible for high temps in furnace


    2) Carbon dioxide at high temps reacts with unreacted coke


    3) Carbon monoxide acts as a reducing agent and reduces most of Iron(III) oxide.


    4) Coke also acts as a reducing agent in the hotter area of the furnace at the bottom.


    5) Limestone is used to remove impurities. Limestone first decomposes.


    6) Calcium oxide produced is a basic oxide and reacts with acidic oxides.


    Extraction of Copper:
    Original method:
    1) Reduce ore to copper oxide by heating


    2) Oxide heated with coke


    3) Overall equation:


    Recent way:
    .

    Extraction of Maganese:


    Extraction of Tungsten:


    So thats not including extraction of aluminium (4 equations), titanium(2 equations), carbide formation (1) , and 3 pollution problem equations. [Didnt want to type them out as if i've not learnt that far yet].
    If ive just learnt all them for no reason my teacher is evil for giving us this booklet to learn on our own :laugh:
