    For q14 b) wouldn't 0.08 moles on the reactants side and the reactants being 2x, make the reactants be 4 times as much as the product?
    I may be completely wrong, but in the exam I started to write equation 3 but then realised that 2x 0.08 would make 0.16 and the product would still be 0.4.
    Can anyone clarify, because I'm not really sure?
    it was the reactant that had 2 in front of it which means it was 2 x 0.04 = 0.08

    Omg I THOUGHT WHEN THEY SAID NEAREST 0.5 DEGREES THEY MEANT LIKE ROUND IT UP. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    I DID THE EXACT SAME THING
    but I realised when there was a few minutes left bc I was thinking about whether I put ".0" on the end and then I realised what rounding to 0.5 actually means :eek:

    For 11. e) I think the question was fairly vague, something like, draw the formula of something that could be formed when bromine reacts with an alkane, so I think more than one bromine may be ok.
    I'm no expert so I may be wrong, but I put 3 bromines, one on each carbon atom.
    I know this molecule does exist, (tribromopropane) but I'm just hoping someone can clarify the answer for this one?
    Thanks

    For the equation for H2 +O2, the answer is water.
    However, would H202 (hydrogen peroxide) be correct
    Its 2H2 + O2-> 2H2O isn't it?

    What's the answer to the carbon soot question?
    soot was formed because there was incomplete combustion (which produces carbon)

    i don't know why that explained the energy difference but i said that energy went towards forming the soot instead of heating the water?
    that is probably completely wrong

    and another reason was because heat was lost to the surroundings, which always happens in calorimetry experiments

    ^that was all question 10 i think?

    (Original post by Puredbest)
    I thought the reactant had 0.08 moles?
    yeah it did, and in the equation it had 2 in front of it which means it had twice as many moles as the other thing

    cant wait till i die. how many marks am i gonna lose on that
    me neither i keep doing the dumbest things
    probably just 1, maybe 2

    You were expected to draw the compound C3H7Br - so just with one bromine atom.

    Holy moly I've done so bad At least I'll never have to do chemistry again
    I'm sure you've done better than you think George!!! I've still got to do the paper 2 and I bet it'll be so hard...
