    Bright red book for AH chemistry is basically scholar in textbook form, exact same stuff just copied over to paper.
    Ah, thanks. Will probably leave buying that then.

    Does anyone know how to define the term:

    'Weighing Accurately Approximately'???

    Also what does this mean from the SQA:

    "The choice of filtering medium depends on the quantity and nature of the precipitate."

    Slightly confused as to what the filtering medium is?

    Basically what you use to filter and how you do it I reckon. What size filter paper would you use? Will you simply pour the solution over the paper and let it drip into a flask or will you use vacuum filtration/ a buchner funnel to collect the precipitate?

    Means using techniques like weighing by difference and using an accurate scale to x amount of decimal places so you know approximately yet accurately how much of a substance you have weighed out.

    Hey all, I recently purchased the bright red study guide for AH chemistry and have been trying to access the digital zone for online tests and stuff - I have no idea how to do this. Does anyone know?

    I tried for physics and couldn't find it. Would you mind telling me how ?

    Just started doing my Chemistry Investigation and I was wondering if anyone else here was doing the Amino Acids in Hair ID one, in case there were some really good ideas. We only have two examples and they are from 2005 and 2003 so not really very current. Was just curious if anyone else had some good ideas. Thanks in advance.

    Anyone finished unit 1? What topic are you studying right now?

    We finished unit 3 and are going through unit 1. Most recently learnt about spin and stuff etc.

    Also doing projects at the same time now.



    Have you finished it already? How did you find it? I find the calculations quite challenging this year but I am improving on the practical skills and techniques theory so that's a positive I guess !

    No, currently doing Kinetics in unit 1 but we've only got a few topics left to do. Our prelim is going to be based on unit 1 only so I'm assuming unit 2 will be after January. We've already started our projects and will have completed it all before Christmas I think.
    Unit 1 is difficult for me because I only have a chem/bio background, the physical stuff is really hard for me. But I'm looking forwards to organic chemistry as that's always been my strongest unit. I am glad we started with the tougher stuff because it gives me time to get used to it. The chemistry project is freaking me out though. So many calculations

    Wouldn't worry too much about the projects, remember, our teachers check them this year!
    I like the physics part of chemistry (photons etc etc etc) because I LOVED Physics last year, I also LOVEEEE the organic Chemistry and structures and all so hopefully it will be ok. For me it is calculations this year that r screwing me

    I'm in the same boat. I don't have a clue what to do in the calculations part but four others don't seem to either so it isn't too bad. Has anyone else been given any deadlines for completing parts of their assignment? In Biology we have been getting our introduction and pilot study done but so far Chemistry has not bothered with the assingnments in detail.

    The teachers check them? What do you mean? And yeah I love organic chemistry as well.
