    What did everyone write for the observation of NaClO and some other chemical, was it black solid/brown solution of I2 as it was displacement?

    i think it was potassium or sumething with iodide and then chlorine came into it but yes was displacement

    Was SiO2 a macromolecular?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Silicon, Graphite and Diamond are the only macromolecular structures, hope that helps in future! (Only ones we need to know anyway)

    What I meant was the raw mark has to be 80% of the total (80). Therefore the lowest mark for an A is 64/80.
    The grade boundaries are based on our results. 100% is not the full 80 marks on the paper but the highest mark anyone got. So unless someone got al the marks on the paper, 100% won't be 80 marks. Then the rest is calculated from there but the % grade boundaries only differ by 2-3.

    Thats correct but when transition metals lose electrons they lose from their s shell first so its 3d3
    I saw a similar question on a pat paper and it was the 4s electron that was lost first because it a higher energy level 👍

    Alright I've put together a couple questions I remember from the exam and the answers, put through your questions or answers you dont agree with!

    1.) chromium ion, 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d3
    2.)aluminium 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p1
    which ion has the same structure as krypton with a 2+ charge- strontium
    which compound has a ion with 2+ from argon and 3- from argon- Ca3P2
    bromine mass spectrum- 50% at 158 and 50% at 162
    5 marks on bromine and magnesium
    6 marks on practical
    find average titre value and use this to find moles of MHCO3 reacted- 0.102 conc of hcl 250cm3 in 25cm3 amounts. something .7 and the moles are 0.041
    rmm is 149

    For the bromine mass spectrum it should have been 25% at 158, 50% at 160 and 25% at 162

    Chromium is an exception to that, it loses 1 electron from 4s before the 3d

    It was incredibly difficult and I got 93% in the specimen paper which everyone said was hard, I would expect grade boundaries to be around 70% for A.
    do you really think because spec papers were so much easier and i dont think i got an a or b im really scared and dont know what to do

    I think this was a question
    Mg2+ and Na+ which is has the smallest atomic radii?
    I wrote Mg as it has same shielding, and number of electrons but has more protons. So more nuclear attraction between electron and nucleus.

    i said that is it correct because they have same radius and shielding but mg has higher charge

    Question about velocity of 52Cr+. Is V=1.714X10^6 ms^-1
    i got that but wrote it as full no.

    That's very true but all the papers in the last decade have not been of the same difficulty.
    Some have been harder than others yet the grade boundaries have remained the same, at 80%?
    yh its 80% but raw marks are different they make 60 as 80% interms of ums etc

    Yh it was 180 but basically I got the right working out and wrote it down but wrote it wrong on my calculator do you think I will get half the marks because I worked out it was 20%

    Also question basically I made quite a bit of errors on the Marsha question and I don't think I got an A so is it possible to still get a B after doing the secong paper I think I got like a c or low b but c mainly.


    And any predictions for the secong paper it will be help ful thanks
