    i'm dreading anything to do with organic chemistry if i get esters i am stuffed all i know is pear drops!! wen studying esters our teacher gave us pear drops and told us to suck them lol, *reminisces* good old days*. also i can't do equilibrium and le chatelier's principle!!! ah wel
    i have no idea what your talking about
    **** im going to fail *cries*

    God, when it asks me to find a formula or do an ionic equation (what the hell is that?!!) I just get lost.
    Aren't ionic equations just the half equations at the electrodes, so u show the ions and electrons e.g. in extraction of copper
    cathode equation: Cu2+ + 2e- goes to Cu
    annode equation: Cu goes to Cu2+ + 2e-

    Thats what I thought .

    All I know is esters smell like glue.

    based on previous papers-what particular topics do you think are guarateed to come up?
    THere's gonna be a question to draw an ionic bond or covalent bond in an atom. And summit about teh haber process no doubt. But it's hard to define the questions cos they always pick out the snooty little bits that no-one seems to learn

    lol, i'm kinda looking forward to chemish coz its my last exam this week, and i can do chemistry, i dreading physics, i hate it soo much and our teacher can tteacher, our head of physics even told us that he hasnt got a degree in it, just a A-level, i mean come on, he's the worst teacher in the world.

    Also people i hate rocks, not because their hard, its just their soo boring you never learn them properly coz you get bored, lol

    Hey guys i don't understand chemistry either. i'm just learning the syllabus which is all you need. you don't have to understand it just learn it. i haven't even touched my folder.

    There's usually always something like "24 grams of x is used to make y, how much z is there?" And you have to calculate relative atomic mass for both substances etc. etc.

    There's usually always a covalent or ionic bonding question, and of course something to do with balancing equations. Equillibrium is also a given.

    i seriously do not get equilibrium and "moves to the right, to the left" stuff. if only there was someone out there who would explain it all...

    Isnt equilibrium where the reaction is balanced reacting i both directions at the same speed or something?

    The dynamic equlibrium is when a reversible reaction reaches the state where there are the same amount of reactants as there is the product. So it is balanced. The eqilibrium can be moved so that you get more product than reactant. (Correct me at all if I'm wrong)

    ionic bonding is when atoms gain or lose elcttrons to have become charged particles. they are then attracted to the opposite charge ---- is this rite any1?

    Yeah, losing and gaining electrons is called reduction and oxidation and don't forget about the alkali metals and the halogens. The halogens always gain an electron and become neg charged and the alkali metals loose one. This is because of electron structure (only one in outer shell for group 1 alkali metals ect so they always loose it)

    LOL!

    I think you do need to know equilibrium (sp?), seems important if you ask me. I haven't started yet...eek...and I do Higher Separate Sciences! And I'm doing it next year. I like it though.

    lol you best geta learning, arr i cant wait till 1115 am 2moro chemistry will be over and my 3.5day weekend begins (no revision planned, lol)
