    I wrote as no. of C atoms increases the more C-C and C-H bonds are there.Reacting it with O2 means more bonds will be broken so more energy is released.I wrote this because I believe you were supposed to explain the trends of the graph but using the equation given as reference.
    Isn't bond breaking endothermic? But I wrote along the same lines but I said more bonds will be made and bond making is exothermic, therefore more energy is released.

    I feel like you might not. But then again, it depends on the mark scheme. That;s a dilemma for sure. For the condition I just put heating. Will that be enough?
    Hmm yet again I think that's rather debatable. Like you say I think it just depends on our luck and the mark scheme! :/ I've a feeling that reflux will need to be stated though.

    You could also use anhydrous copper (ii) sulphate right?
    i hope so aha. it forms blue crystals doesn't it?

    1st, 2nd were not valid because rounding off doesnt give a huge difference. Heat loss and incomplete comb were the valid statements

    I know that question was so messed up. I kind of ranked them and said which one would contribute towards the percentage error being high and why this is so. So the third one was the most, then the last.

    I wrote that heat loss and incomplete combustion were valid.As the sig figs and uncertainty of measuring instruments was too low for a 41% error

    yay, that's along the lines of what I put down. Kind of added which one would contribute most towards the percentage error.

    Really ? I got around 41 %

    Wasn't this like that ----> (1367.3-800)/1367.3 x 100= 41 %

    Anyways this paper was so ****
    u r correct i made a mistake though but my all friends go tthis same answer.

    I hope physics unit 3 goes well.
    Has anybody got some links or useful stuff ?
    Btw it has been really easy in recent years
    Dont know how edexcel will come up this time like they did with chem unit3

    wouldn't mass give a large uncertainty since it was rounded to the nearest 100g tho?

    Yeah I said the first two would have some impact but not a very significant impact, therefore not the main contributors towards the 41% error.
