    Again wondering if anyone can help me with this?

    I did the graphs on the first two pages at the end and was running out of time - stupidly all I did was do a steeper gradient for the first (same volume), shallower gradient for the second (same volume) and steeper gradient (same volume) for the third.

    I think that's two marks for the third, but for the first two, would I get one mark for each for the change in gradient?

    Or would the two-mark allocation be 1) for a change in volume and 2) for a correct sort of size of change in volume? (i.e. 0 marks for me on both)

    Thanks

    That's pretty good to be honest with you
    It's a resit haha, I'm doing A2 but I resat Chem2 to get more UMS.
    I was terrified to resit it, because I didn't think I'd do any better, but hopefully I have!!

    holy **** FFS i didnt see that either OMG OMG OMG OMG EASY MARKS GONE :O:O:O:O
    I missed 8bi! I'm hating life right now. I think i'm lucky to get a D and it wasn't even a bad exam compared to mocks.

    Do you think you will get penalized if you didn't draw the height exactly double and 2/5th as high on the graphs and just put it higher and lower?

    You probably just had to draw them within the correct 'lines' that the graph was on. If you did that, you'd get the mark.
    The other mark is for starting at the same point as the original line.

    Thanks for this! Would I get the mark for doing the half equation like this: 8I- ----> 4I2 + 8e-?

    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME FOR THE FIRST QUESTION!!! I never did anything twice as high or twice as low..I just drew them all from the starting point and either higher or lower???Would that be work 1 mark for each?? i.e. for the 1st i drew it up. 2nd one down and last one i drew same as first ..But i never did it twice or much for any just up or down!!..would i still get 1 mark for each! :/.

    For this one I wrote h2so4 +Cl- ---> Cl+ + HSO4
    WOULD THIS BE RIGHT!!

    For the last question there was Br- Ions on the rhs aswell Na+ + Br- = NaBr no?
    As it was in solution the Na+ and Br- would just float around separately as spectator ions and not join to form NaBr.

    1 mark for slope, and 1 for correct height. So you would get 1/2 for each one.

    Possibly, if you meant H2SO4 + Cl- --> HCl + HSO4- but I think they wanted H+ + Cl- --> HCl as it is an acid-base reaction whose 'usual' ionic equation is just H+ + OH- --> H2O

    As has been mentioned before - you'll get some marks. 1 for correct steepness and 1 for correct final volume.

    we lost same amount of marks then :/

    An A is always 112 UMS the UMS boundaries don't change, what changes is the raw mark needed to reach that UMS boundary.
