Is an alloy the same thingy oh **** is glass an alloy or not... help
Glass is not an alloy as its partially made up of Silicon Dioxide which is covalently bonded together (non-metal).

For the question in c3 about explaining the trends of reactivity in the alkali metals, what did you put for that?

Unfortunately not as I was one of those retards that missed out the last two pages thinking the exam had finished... Most traumatic experience probably this year that exam... Ooh bad memories indeed ! ;/

The further down the group you go, the more reactive the metal as its easier to lose an electron due to the weak forces of attraction which is the result of shielding.

Aw don't worry - judging from your ability to remember the whole of the C2 exam, it seems like your memory is quite good (and people with good memories are usually great in exams)

It's annoying cause that mistake has meant it is impossible for me to obtain an a* overall but after today's exam I'm confident in getting an A.. Can't really complain I guess I made the mistake so yeh

The question stated it has similar properties to Graphite, so, made up of layers which are held together by weak intermolecular forces, allowing the layers to slide making it ideal to use as a lubricant.

I have no idea, I'll do some research into it now, I was unsure of this as well. I put the following;
Has weak intermolecular forces, therefore they're easy to overcome, giving the substance a low melting and boiling point.

I made the same mistake as you and as long as you have a really good isa and get around 48+ in chem and physics, you can get A* despite missing those 11 marks, according to my teacher

Yeah and I got a positive number .. 400 and something? Because the reactants were larger than the products. So isn't it endothermic??
I got the products were larger than the reactants

Pretty sure the ion was hydrogen, hydrogen is present in all acids.

Everyone questioning about the calculating mass one:
2Mg 2Mg0
48 80
48/48 = 1 80/48 = 1.6666....
1 1.66666..........
(x 1.2) (x1.2)
= 1.2 = 2

The answer was exactly 2.
I got up to the 1.66 bit, had a meltdown and didn't get it any further. Do you think I'll still get 2/3 marks for it?

What silicon question? Are you on about the glass and why glass has a lower melting point when silica has a high melting point? Wasn't it worth 1 mark?
