    So how did everyone find it? I thought it went quite well

    For why X can be turned to Y, the reagent is H2, it was a hydrogenation reaction, i don't think you can write the name as it said formula
    That may have been a weird question as it isn't, i think, in the chem1 syllabus, its more GCSE and CHEM2
    the mole questions were quite OK, people may have found the first part of 5a) difficult
    you had to use PV=nRT and then mass=mole*Mr

    And the answer to the molecular formula question is B2Cl4

    But i wasn't entirely sure about the relative atomic mass question, did we have to make a formula in X and Y as a similar question has come up before.
    I did it by trial and error and got 86.4, i think? is that right?

    Got 86.4 aswell, but I can't see it being right as mine was just a complete guess of how to do it, be surprised if its right. For 5a) Pretty much got it all wrong but used the right method, found out moles using PV=nRT then found out mass using n x Mr but just seem to have different answer than everyone else, hopefully get 2/3 for method. Also, I put H2O for the reagent, any chance of getting the mark?

    For the pv/nrt question did we not have to divide the number of moles by 5 before X by the RMM? All the info was for the total number of products and there were five so I thought we'd have to divide the answer from PV/RT by give to get one mole?

    i think for the moles one, you would get 4/5 if all if the method was correct, and i'm pretty sure about 86.4, so it may have beeen a lucky guess. H2O?...mm.. i don't think so, because that means Y has to be a alcohol, it was just an alkane

    Got a good chance of an A if thats the case, think the PV = nRT question will make or break my grade. Either way, only got a C last time due to panic so even a B will suffice. If 86.4 is correct and my method is wrong, will I get all 3 marks, 2 or 1?

    i think if the answer is right then you would get 1 mark, because all the other marks are method marks

    we do divide, but i think by 3 not 5 as pv=nrt is only for gases, so you would only look at the moles of CO, it was the only gas product.

    Better than nothing I suppose, my method was to use 4 and 10, I THINK I done (85 + 10) x (87 + 4) and got 8640, divided by 100 to get 86.4. Something like that anyway, either really lucky or an unorthodox method.

    Hmm I didn't know the equation question, the one with boron in question 5

    Got the same as me.
    I tried it with 20 and 50 though. Got 86.4
    Tried it with another two sets of numbers, got 85.6 again.

    So, I think 85.6 is a safe bet.

    For the mass, did anyone get 2.18?
    Also, for the last Q, I got B2Cl7. =l

    similar to my method then, i found that if you times 28.575 by 2.5 you get about 71 and both of these add to almost 100.
    therefore the percentage of the 85 one was 28.575% and the 87 one about 71%
    then i did (28.575*85)+(87*71) and divided it by 100....that gave me about 86.42.... and i gave it to one dp as 86.4

    A LONG TRIAL AND ERROR lol
    hope then answer is right if the method isn't

    last Q WAS B2Cl4
    i can't remember what i put for the mass one, but it looks right

    I did: (85x2.5) + (87x1)
    divided all that by 3.5

    Got 85 something, I think..
    It felt right..

    Was B2Cl4 for definite I think, I think I done 35.5/86.3? and got 0.4, then done 10.8/13.7? and got 0.8, so 1:2 ratio, which would have meant empirical formula was BCl2, that was half of 163.6, so just doubled up and got B2Cl4. And let us hope 86.4 is right

    I done the exact same at first! I was just putting numbers in my calculator and x's by 2.5 to try get 100%, didn't work out for me though, so used that method, thought it would be completely wrong but happy to see it wasn't.

    yess, let us all pray 86.4 is right
