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!
5. 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!
10. Do we need to know in detail the history of the atomic model and the history of the periodic table?
11. How do you know if an element is diatomic ?

12. So what are the predictions for tomorrow? Any certain topics you guys think will appear in the exam?
13. 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.
15. what definitions do we need to know?

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).

Posted from TSR Mobile

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.
19. Does anyone know if we have to know how Carbonic Acid is formed (plus equations)?

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.
