    why do you have to do this part?
    the question asks for concentration, not moles

    How come when a system increases in entropy, it becomes energetically more stable?
    I thought if entropy increased, T(DeltaS) would increase, and that means that (Delta)G<0 which means the reaction is spontanoeous?? Or am i just overcomplicating things
    just remember that if entropy increases, it becomes more +ve, and is more energetically stable (I think of a bedroom, it becomes a mess, this makes it more energetically stable according to book and teachers- so just have to accept )

    gibbs free energy is affected by the entropy of the system, the enthalpy with surrondings and the temperature.
    For a reaction to take place spontaneously it must be below zero.

    Remember when working out gibbs free energy convert all the units to either joules or kilojoules, and use temp in kelvin (convert from degrees if needed)

    yeh, that section is complicated if you use the gibbs free energy equation and sub the positive or negative signs in you can see if gibbs free energy is positive, or negative and feasible.

    I think that you not only have to balance the numbers, but also the charges.
    So looking at their answer the charge on either side of the equation = +12
    This wouldn't be the case if you balanced only using oxidation numbers.
    I hope this makes sense, let me know if i'm not being clear!
    hey thanks for the help, but i still dont understand..how? so first balance the equation then the charges..hmmm i tried and failed...I asked my teacher this today and he couldnt even do this.. I was like what?!!!

    Look at the legacy papers- the Trends and Patterns ones. Should be on the ocr website

    Okay, I didn't actually try to do it before, and you're right it's really hard!
    Obviously I can see that the answer is balanced, but i have no idea how you'd go about doing that! If your teacher can't do it, i've got no chance i'm afraid! Sorry I wasn't more help.

    Do we need to know this stuff for our exam?

    Alloys

    Colour Change in Titrations

    Silver Nitrate

    Absorption Spectrum (I don't think we need this, but just in case)

    Questions Like:
    Barium carbonate and magnesium carbonate both decompose when heated.
    Describe and explain the difference between the temperature at which barium carbonate and magnesium carbonate decompose. (3 marks)

    Anything to do with NaSCN (NaSCN added to complex ions)

    Decribing and explaining sturucture and bonding and electrical conductivity and melting point and reactinf with water, e.g. of MgO and SiCl4

    If we do need to know these things can you tell me what we need to know?

    These have come up in the legacy so I'm a bit unsure.

    Also, MgCO3 a gaint ionic lattice?

    Thanks so much.

    Can someone help me with this :
    FeO4 2- + H+ -------> O2 + H20 + Fe 3+
    Q asks to balance this? I think they use oxidation numbers for this: the answer is :
    4FeO4 2- + 20H+ ------->3 O2 + 10H20 + 4Fe 3+

    How did they do this??? I could just balance it when looking at the nunber of oxygens, hydrogens etc but i get different answer, Can someone please please help me out...
    FeO4 2- + H+ -------> O2 + H20 + Fe 3+
    Fe6+ Fe3+ - reduced by 3, so you want an even number really as O2- -> O and you can't have 1.5O2- lol
    so if you try
    2Fe6+ -> 2Fe3+ overall reduction of 6
    you have 8 O2- ions now, but you only want 3 of them to be oxidized to O2
    so that means you'll have 1.5 O2, and 5H2O
    you don't really want halves though, so double it again to...
    4Fe6+ ->4Fe3+ overall reduction of 12
    16O2-, so you want 6 O2- to be reduced, giving you 3O2 molecules
    this leaves you with 10 O2-, which stay as O2-
    10 O2- means you must have 10H2O, so to balance that you need 20H+

    giving overall equation 4FeO42- + 20H+ -> 4Fe3+ + 10 H2O + 3O2

    probably would've taken me a LOT longer if you didn't post the answer haha

    Ka value of phenol is 1.3 x10 -10
    pH value of a buffer is 8.71
    Student used 0.200 mol dm-3 solution of phenol, mixed with the same volume of sodium phenoxide.
    Determine the concentration of phenoxide?

    I get the answer 0.013 mol dm-3 when the mark scheme says it is 0.13 moldm-3... I can't see where i've gone wrong, can someone please explain this

    Is the pH value of the buffer referring to the equilibrium between
    C6H5OH <--> C6H50- + H+
    ?
