    Why is it thermal cracking? I thought it was an Alkane?

    For the PV/NRT question I rounded up some answers throughout the process to three significant figures, I got the process right but ended up getting something 2.17g instead of 2.78 due to where I'd rounded up. Will they penalise me for doing this?

    It referred to X which was an alkene (which is made by thermal cracking)

    Do you think they would accept HCl as one of the other answers on the offical markscheme?

    Ooh that is quite a bit off, so you'll probably get 3/5 i think..

    I don't think so - if you added HCl to that alkene, you would not have produced the alkane drawn, you would have made a haloalkane instead

    I think I've done pretty well. I put catalytic cracking where I should have put thermal cracking so there's one gone. Can see a couple of other marks I'm pretty sure I've lost, but overall it went well Since that was a resit after last summer, I'm feeling quite relieved now!

    I think I've done better than I did in January, but it's nowhere near what I need for the unis I want to apply to. Just have to hope I do better on unit 2, and that my ISA mark pulls them up. D:

    made some silly mistakes :/ and surely saying just 'ionic' for 4d is wrong as it asks for the the crystaline structure so surely it would be giant ionic lattice?

    I wrote for question 5d that you could separate the HCl made back into hydrogen and chlorine and use hydrogen within the reaction again as the reagent.. Would that be acceptable?

    This isn't a recognised use of HCl, but you seem to have the right idea. Selling HCl, using it to make hydrochloric acid etc. will all score here, but I'm not sure that your answer will.

    Ionic will be fine.
