    Here's a question we did earlier today where I got confused if you don't mind.

    a.) Petrol is basically octane (C8H18).
    An average small car travels 10 000 miles a year. The fuel consumption is 7.5 miles per litre of petrol. 1 litre of petrol has a mass of 1000g.
    What volume and mass of CO2 does this car produce in a year?

    Anyway, mole ratio is 1:8

    If you don't mind, could you explain the steps? We did it this morning so I know you have to convert stuff to moles but I don't understand why or how.


    And if anyone can help me with Physics. I'm a little bit confused as to how I'm supposed to calculate the displacement. It's basically distance, right? So would it just be v*t? Apparently I have to calculate the area of the triangle on the graph, not sure if this is right.

    Sorry for asking for so much
    I'm really sorry, I was just doing my biology homework. But I see usy has helped you. Do you understand it?

    Gosh!

    No problem at all! :hat2:

    If you don't mind checking what I've done for a different question.

    - If we have been given 0.24g of Mg. What volume of a 0.01 moldm^-3 of HCl is needed for complete reaction?

    So I got... Concentration = 0.01 moldm^-3 Mass = 0.24g Volume = ? Mole ratio = 1:2

    I converted the mass of Mg into mols with Mols=Mass/Ar
    0.24/24 = 0.01

    For mols of HCl I just multiplied the above with mole ratio.
    0.01 x 2 = 0.02

    I got that far, I'm not sure what to do.

    Looks good, now you can use the forumula:

    Number of Moles = (Concentration x Volume)/1000 to work out the volume of HCl.

    I'm being stupid since it's late. How would I rearrange the formula to find the volume instead?

    Multiply both sides by 1000 and then divide by the concentration.

    OH.

    I got Volume=(1000xMols)/Concentration

    So (1000 x 0.02)/0.01 = 2000dm^3, which is apparently correct!

    Thank you so much, I really appreciate the help. I hope I didn't bother you too much. I'll be off now, so good night!

    Ah I have this reputation as a "star of the biology department" and have gotten an A* in bit of homework so far. . .so he started to expect that from me

    Aww... I'd rather disappoint than be thought of as low standard and get higher but not gey attention xD

    I can't help my standards, unfortunately in my AS subjects it's the same story :emo:

    I don't understand how you can get an A* on pieces of work though

    I mean it's not the whole subject thing? And it's only one piece and that one piece won't be all thats on the exam? :,0

    True, but the large number of medics/ dentists/ vet meds/ oxbridge success stories
    yeah I agree there is a lot about that, but its a forum based on academics what do you expect

    I mean %age wise it's equivalent to what would be an A*, they use past paper questions for our homework

    Nope, but thus far it's 2 fairly chunky topics
