    Just a quick question plz!
    What is a Precipitation reaction and how do you tell if it is one?
    Good luck everyone
    Precipitation reactions are group 7, you add silver nitrate to a solution containing halide ions and the colour of the precipitate tells you which halide is present
    Chloride ions-white precipitate
    Bromide ions-cream precip
    Iodide ions-Pale yellow precip
    Hope this helps, good luck!!

    Precipitation reactions are basically the ones you are using for your Silver Nitrate Tests so:

    Ag+ + Cl- --> AgCl(s) Producing a white ppt Soluble in dilute ammonia

    Definitely think it will be a harder exam than usual. Don't know if you've taken any of these or heard, but all the maths, further maths, biology and physics exams so far have been considerably harder than previous years. We'll see tomorow morning though
    Ahh right, not great news thanks, good luck!

    I get really confused with orbitals, sub shells etc
    Does an orbital have 2 electrons? and a Subshell is the S, P, D and F?

    Nah sorry mate that's wrong. If the molecule is polar, and you just said the dipoles cancel out, how is the molecule polar?
    Omg so sorry! I just realised my mistake haha thanks good luck for tomorrow

    I like to think of it as

    Orbital = has 2 electrons with opposite spins ( 2px 2py 2pz)

    Sub-Shell = S = 1 orbital, P = 3 orbitals, D, = 5 orbitals , F = 7 orbitals

    Shell 1st = 1 sub-shell 2nd = 2 sub shells 3rd = 3 sub-shells 4th = 4 sub-shells

    So if you had I2 to 2Br- it won't react but with cyclohexane the organic solvent will be purple because of the I2 ??
    yeah. if they ask a question on it it will highly likely be in a table where you ust have to write the colour cyclohexane goes, or a 5 mark qu about reactivity of halogens and a test to show it

    Thank you so much! that makes so much sense now... good luck tomorrow!

    General question, in regards to systematic naming how do you know which element the roman numerals refers to as a rule of thumb? Also, can the roman numerals represent a negative oxidation number?

    No as it says they won't test us on it in the exam in a little examiners tip on the first spread.

    Just remember H F Br O N I Cl - "HF Bronicle". As far as I know those are the only ones (only ones we were taught).

    It's only diatomic in if it's a group 6, 7 element and nitrogen in group 5. Since they can get their full shells by bonding with each other, whether it be a single, double or triple bond.

    I'm guessing they'll put a hard titration type question, as the January report say's all the maths questions were answered very well and were too easy.
