    I'm afraid the capillary tube is used in melting point apparatus instead, here we use a fusion tube!

    It varies according to the grade boundaries actually. By full UMS, you don't technically need to get full RAW marks. If I give an example of let's say Unit 6, January 2016, if you score 34 out of 50, you get a full UMS i.e 60/60

    Never heard of the fusion tube, just simple distillation to determind bp (despite its inaccuracy).

    Is this something that we need to know then?

    Ah sorry, I thought I read it as melting point apparatus, yeah you're right for boiling point we use a fusion tube or instead we use fractional distillation

    Time will only tell! There's little pressure since I realistically need 70% average but I do want to do as well as I can.

    Well 200/300 is a mid/high C grade. If you go for the A* in chem than even if you have a bad day should still be well over that, you are clearly pretty good at chem if you were able to get 280/300 in as in the first place

    But I started studying in April this year not even revising-studying. Hey I think I know you- I'm the girl who was really demotivated and asked if A2 in 2 months was possible? Lmao your comment on that thread boosted my confidence a lot so thanks again for that!

    Ah I vaguely remember. Honestly I think you should still be fine, there are some parts of the course that don't require a huge amount of learning depending on your skillset (if you are good at maths it doesn't take a large amount of learning to be able to pick up those marks). Let's do some maths quickly now. Let's say you get the marks evenly between all 3, so that is 80 ums in each paper and 40 in unit 6. Last year, to get that you would have needed to get 62/90 in unit 4, 51/90 in unit 5 and 30/50 in unit 6. As you can see, you have quite a big margin of error so I think you will be just fine

    Could someone answer this please?
    ANS. The reaction would still carry on at a slower rate as it is just slowed dow, hence a lower titre volume would be needed.

    Do tag the one who asked this question in the first place

    I don't get this question, so basically you add ethanol (which has an OH- so)
    Cr2O72- + OH- --> CrO42- + H+

    So how come the answer's not CrO42- ??

    this is oxidation of alcohol..so cr2o7(2-) is reduced to cr(3+)
