    I don't think the answer for distillation is right, because when you heat up the mixture even though all of the ethanol will have evaporated, some of the water will also evaporate before 100 degrees. Think about it logically, water on the ground evaporates even when the temperature isn't 100 degrees: temperature is the average kinetic energy of particles so some particles may have enough energy to evaporate even before 100 degrees.
    So I think a more correct answer would be something like vapourise the mixture, then follow in a process similar to fractional distillation, where water vapour condenses at a lower level than ethanol, and they are separated this way.
    I said for this one basically the process of distillation:

    Filter in a beaker

    Filter paper in the filter

    Water in the beaker heated up

    Ethanol poured into the filter (filter paper)

    Ethanol has a lower boiling point than water and therefore evaporates into the condenser.

    Condenser tube condenses the ethanol vapor back to a liquid.

    Liquid is then dripped into a separate beaker.

    Idk its unofficial and I think I'm going to keep it

    Definitely recycling, not reusing.
    ahh yeah my bad. just couldn't remember. Can't even remember what I wrote mainly. some of the stuff in that first post (of mine) were what I wrote, what you think?

    What do you think the grade boundaries will be from an A* to a B?
    I reckon: A* - 51
    A - 42
    B - 36

    yeah I think you basically had to describe fractional distillation but with ethanol and water instead of crude oil

    For the recycling question, would saying that it saves resources, is cheaper than reusing it because some parts might not work properly, and prevents pollution, be enough for 3 marks?

    the grade boundaries will definitely high.

    Was the two conditions for cracking: high temperature and hot catalyst

    Would I get aluminium oxide catalyst?

    I put that you should stir the water in the beaker to ensure even distribution of heat... is that ok or no?

    Also the ethanol distillation one i just wrote about normal distillation not fractional? is that wrong?

    Grade boundary predictions?
    C1 past grade boundaries
    2015: A* 50, A 41, B 31, C 22, D 13
    2014: A* 47, A 38, B 29, C 21, D 13
    2013: A* 47, A 37, B 27, C 17, D 8

    I reckon this year was most similar to 2015 in terms of difficulty so use that

    Normal distillation should be correct. It said nothing of fractional distilliation in that question and also, Crude oils are used in that scenario not the separation of ethanol from water.

    this years was easier than last year

    Erm... Are you sure about that? I think you are wrong. 4Fe is definitely correct. The little 2 would interpret covalant bonding and we know that metals do not have these bonds.
