    For the emf graph, I drew a 'straight' line free-hand because I didn't have a ruler... will I lose the marks lol? It was a pretty shakey line..

    I want to know this too because i forgot to draw the complex!
    (Original post by shiney101)
    Does anyone know whether they asked for the shape of the complex?
    Yeah, they asked to draw the complex, I doubt it would be more than two marks though...

    Yeah, so why did increasing pressure affect the oxygen half equation if they weren't all gaseous?

    Can someone clarify how many marks I would get for using; SO2+ 0.5O2 --> SO3 , in each question involving;
    Enthalpy: My answer was half the correct (0) marks/2
    Entropy: Since using the SO2+ 0.5O2 --> SO3 equation my entropy was also half (0 or 2 ? as follow through of error in eq) marks/2
    Gibbs: My answer was calculated using the half the correct values (follow through based on previous answers)/3


    Am I awarded 3/7 or 5/7 ?
    I made the exact same mistake, would we not get 3/3 for the gibbs if we still did the right equation?

    I just remembered that I drew the complex with the ethane-1,2-diamine ligands in pencil. Is that okay :/

    Should be as long as it's hb or b.

    If you halved them both, Gibbs would take exactly the same value - it is only a measure of feasibility and doesn't depend on the number of species on either side.

    But i mean like the name of the shape ie: octahedral?

    Ahh yh it was hb, I've already dropped enough silly marks really can't afford anymore 😂

    Not unless your examiner is a padantic *******

    Guys, would I get 'ethanol' as a suitable reagent for reducing Cr3+ to Cr2+? (I put Cr2+ is blue, so that's one mark at least!).

    It did NOT say to name the shape.

    Also, wouldn't increasing the surface area of the platinum electrodes speed up both reactions lead to a faster transfer of electrons and give a higher emf?

    Only thing I've heard of is zn/excess hcl which is what I put

    As you said... it speads up both reactions. So has no effect overall. Could be wrong though

    Jokes aside, I don't think they'll penalise you for not drawing a straight line. It's the logic behind it that matters and if you've displayed the correct understanding then it should be correct. That's what I believe anyway

    -2.

    I thought the water produced was gaseous?

    The main principle is a reducing agent with its conditions, hence Zn acidified with HCl.

    Personally, I don't believe you would.

    Question stated that the SA of both electrodes increased, meaning emf remains the same.

    Nah, I'm probably wrong lol

    just thought that if the left cell had say -0.3V and the right was 0.3V, the E would be 0.6V. Doubling both would give E as 1.2V

    Guessing there's some majorly wrong chemistry there though

    ngl you should have just asked for a ruler or gotten another pencil/pen to use as a ruler

    i reckon you'll still pick this mark up if it is clearly meant to be horizontal, and couldn't be mistaken for a line that is intentionally fluctuating up and down. good luck
