    How did everyone get 200kg for the 6 mark question? I got 250kg - I did 500 + 200 + 50 = 750, and then divided it by 3. I know I will probably get some marks for it, but I just wondered what everyone else did. :confused:
    I just averaged out the best on all the charts, mainly going by the profit peak being at 200kg, I didn't use any math or anything

    For improving the accuracy of the results I said insulate the beaker so external temperatures do not increase the over all temperature does this seem alright thanks

    are nanoparticles bigger or smaller than normal particles?
    Smaller but have a bigger surface area

    Wasn't it cloudy because CO2 was present? Because it was limewater.

    it said PURE water didn't it? And it doesn't have ions in it anyway... So I don't think you have to write about simple molecular substances it was one mark
    Oh yeah! Me going over.

    1b) use a digital thermometer ~ more accurate ~ no human error
    I wrote electric thermometer. Reckon I could still get the mark?

    Wasn't the mean 5.8? Because when calculating a mean, surely you can't record to a higher degree of accuracy?

    They're lenient most times with decimals, it's only in physics where you ever get marked down

    1. Question on Temperature Change
    a) 5.75 (do not include the anomaly)
    b)
    c)
    d) How could you change the apparatus to get more accurate results? Use a digital thermometer. It is more accurate.

    For 1d) Put a lid on to prevent heat loss, wouldn't that be correct also?

    For the mean question I got 5.75, an then thought I was wrong as it said mean decrease so instead of adding them all an dividing I subtracted them an got something like -2.75 an I thought it was correct due to it being decrease, hence the minus, and I didn't include the anomalous result and it was 3 marks so do you reckon I could get at least 1?

    No, magnesium ions are more reactive than hydrogen ions, so the Mg ions are more keen to stay as an ion, thus the hydrogen ions are reduced to hydrogen and then form hydrogen molecule.
    I apologise for my mistake, I have already corrected myself twice on this thread...

    For the 2 variables I said to keep constant the volume of sodium thiosulfate and hydrochloric acid is this right?
    I wrote that ! but wrote comcentration instead of volume

    For the 6 marker, I some how got 50 for the amount, but I justified it by using information from the graph such as the price and the run off into lakes and rivers, I wrote quite a lot and since it was 6 marks is there any chance of me getting at least 1 or 2?

    For 1d about changing apparatus I wrote that id use a clamp and retort stand to hold the thermometer in the solution without touching glass so the glass doesn't change the temp it shows, is this wrong?
