    Here is the bond energy once and for all:

    ethanol + oxygen-->carbon dioxide + water
    CH3CH2OH + 3O2 --> 2CO2 + 3H2O

    on the left there are:
    5*H-C bonds (each with an energy of 413) which totals 2065
    1*C-C bonds at 347
    1*C-O bonds at 358
    1*O-H bonds at 467
    3*O=O bonds (each with an energy of 495) which totals 1485
    the total left hand side energy is the sum of these at 4722

    on the right side there are:
    4*C=O bonds (each with an energy of 799 [for CO2]) which totals 3196
    6*O-H bonds (each with an energy of 467) which totals 2802
    the total right hand side energy is the sum of these at 5998

    4722-5998=-1276
    it is left as a negative but a positive answer is fine at GCSE
    but the next past said that the reaction was endothermic ah im confused now. everyone i asked also got 212J ah

    Scum is what I wrote.
    Thank you! I wrote that too

    The next part said that the reaction was exothermic - it was a combustion reaction (which always gives out heat if you think about it lol.)

    just to say, if you wrote the OH together it could be wrong, since AQA said "complete the diagram in displayed formula" which requires all of the bonds to be shpwn, wether or not the markers will enforce this is unkown to me, but ever since i got marked down for it in a mock i make sure to check that i display all the bonds
    Ah hoping I'll get away with it!

    We had a specific heat capacity question (work out energy transferred) and the answer was 3444J.
    Was that 100% still right because I still don't get it? I did 0.8x4.2x16.4 how many marks do U think for this?

    You used the correct formula and sort of the correct numbers. So, 2 marks (out of 3) maybe?

    Guys I think if we got 212KJ then we were sitting further additional science not C3 like on this thread.

    first of all, obviously this reaction is exothermic, even though im 100% said it anyway in the test, its a combustion reaction, these are used to make fire, and heat, its pretty clear they are exothermic, since this heat is the energy that is released by the reaction.

    wait, were the two carbons given in the question, thats what i cant remember

    what was your question? as in the one on the further additional paper?

    I'm also pretty sure there was no specific heat capacity q in the further additional paper either?

    yeah, they were already given.
    we just had to fill out the functional group.

    Hey, for the methane question I knew methane was natural gas but rather than write 'natural gas', like most people here did, I wrote 'the atmosphere', do you think this is okay or wrong? I also wrote cow farms above it seeing a small cows produce methane.

    Something with methane in it and an oxygen with three bonds I think

    Can i ask where the division came from? for the speific heat capacity question you only had to multiply
