    Strong electrostatic forces of attraction between delocalized electrons and positive metal ion.

    one was about why fuel for camping is in liquid form rather than as a gas. It's not because it more safe or easier to store, oh no, it's cause it takes up less stupid volume!
    oh haha, i remember that!

    Lmaoo, that is the exact answer i put and looked at the stupid mark scheme and was like :confused:, now in the real thing I wouldve never even guessed that,
    It's so annoying isn't it?! Also one in jan 2012, where there's two lone pairs and 3 bonding pairs, and the shape is trigonal planar not trigonal bypyramidal

    For the N isotope, you know that isotopes have the same number of electrons as an atom of an element. So you know that no. neutrons = mass no - atomic no..
    no. neutrons = 15 - 7 = 8 neutrons.
    And 7 electrons/protons.

    So the fundamental particles are 7 protons/electrons and 8 neutrons.

    8a is literally just asking you how many neutrons, electrons and protons have a go?

    8a) mass number is the total number of protons and neutrons of an atom.
    So the fundamental particles will be 7 protons 7 electrons and 15-7=8 neutrons.

    8b) Relative atomic mass: average mass of one atom of an element/mass of 1/12th
    carbon 12 atom.
    (95.12x14)+(4.88x15)/100= 14.05 to 2 dp

    hope this helps!

    For 8B,
    RAM could be any old defintion, while mine would be "the average mass of an atom of an element in relation to that of an atom of carbon-12 which is exactly 12g.

    To calculate the RAM, you know that RAM = (m/z x abundance)/100.
    So (95.12 x 14) + (4.88 x 15)/100 = 14.0488 = 14.05(figs)

    Help! I alwas get these questions wrong and its only 1 mark.

    qs 5e help pls=D
    It's the 2nd group, it's because the jump between ionisation energies occurs between the 2nd and 3rd required ionisation energy. If the jump was to occur between the 3rd and the 4th we'd know that that element belongs to the 3rd group. (by jump I mean you're talking about a massive difference between ionisation energies relative to previous or next ionisation energies in the table)

    Not sure what to study or how to prepare at the moment. Have written all the papers from 2009-2012 and got marks ranging from 68-70/70 on all of them.

    Maybe I should just take a break or something.. advice?

    Go on freeexampastpapers.com
    Do all the unit 1 papers from 2001-2009. They might contain some unit 2 stuff but whoo cares.

    no point, u only need to know the configurations up to 37 electrons which is rubidium precisely.
