    yh same it was amazing! for calculating atom economy did you get 4/36*100 = 11.1111%

    Wonderful paper, apart from a few stupid mistakes (in a six marker but only a few marks), everything else was shockingly pleasant!
    we should make an unofficial markscheme

    for energy calculations did people get 587-1134= -547

    I thought it went terribly, there was hardly anything on organic chemistry and equilibrium (my favourite)
    It felt like it was mostly chromatography

    i didn't do much on chromatography as it came up last year, but i thought the paper was alright not amazing, not awful!!

    Oh no I think I got 547 - 1134 = -587

    For the last 6 marker (about the acids) how many marks would I get for being right about the pHs but completely wrong about concentrations? Hopefully I won't be limited to L1 lmao

    probably about 2/3
    for that question i talked about the strong acids having the low ph and high concentration if the volume of sodium hydroxide was low as less is needed to neutralise the acid which makes it more concentrated, i think it was acid f that was most strongest and had the highest concentration

    Surely a low amount of sodium hydroxide would mean a lower concentration as you need less alkali overall?

    no it wasnt there were 4 hydrogens in the product and the total mass of reactants was 36 atom economy= mass of hydrogens in products/total mass of all reactants*100

    Ok that's not too bad then to say I had no idea about concentration
    I just assumed that the higher the number in the second column, the higher the concentration of the acid as more alkali is needed to neutralise it, however my friend said that I read that column wrong as she thought it said amount of acid needed to neutralise the alkali whereas I thought it was amount of alkali needed to neutralise the acid.

    Exactly, it was 4/20 NOT 36 therefore it was 20%

    Wrong, i did the same thing but what i forgot to realise is that there are 2 oxygens so (2x16) + 4 = 36

    There was a 2 at the front of the reaction i think so yeah

    Fair enough if it was, but why would the atom economy go down if it was supposedly a "new" method?
