    Oh dear I can't do calculations to save my life

    Can anyone guide me through this question 7D http://store.aqa.org.uk/qual/gce/pdf...W-QP-JUN10.PDF

    I get upto working out the multiple of Fe and Cr2O72- to find the moles of Fe


    I would really appreciate it thanks.

    Can I confirm, that cisplatin has two NH3 ligands right?

    The AQA Nelson thornes book says it's NH2.
    Right I can't quite remember how this works but it is possible that it could be both, I remember my teacher saying something about it.

    Yes it is definitely NH3 as they have written further down the page (not that this excuses their mistake).

    Yeah that's what confused me and wikipedia said NH3 as well, so just wanted to double check. Thanks

    I may be wrong but I was under the impression that it is only synoptic for the topics in Unit 5. So they can ask anything we've previously learnt about on Inorganic, Energetics and Redox but not things like Organic as Unit 4 has a synoptic element for that.
    Basically, any AS knowledge that was built upon in Unit 5, we can be asked questions on.

    On the OLD specification there was an extra synoptic paper across the entire syllabus but now Units 4 and 5 are both "semi-synoptic" so to speak. Unit 5 cannot include Unit 4 knowledge because they can be taken in either order.
    yeh this sounds about right to me... from the stuff ive seen in the previous papers they do ask a bit of synoptic questions but they are all related to the unit 5 chapters so nothing we wouldnt know really or nothing we would really need 2 speicifically remember... so i would then assume no unit 2 reactions etc would come up (well they might for the periodic chapter but thts it).

    Okay here goes...

    (Fe2+ --> fe3+)x6
    6e- + cr2o7 2- + 14H+ --> 2Cr2+ + 7H2O

    Mol Cr2O7 2- is (0.100/1000)x23.50 = 2.37x10-3 mol
    Ratio of Cr2O7 2- : fe2+ is 1:6
    therefore mol of fe2+ is 6x2.37x10-3 = 0.0142 mol in 25cm3
    Therefore in 250cm3 it is 0.0142x10 = 0.142 mol

    Original mol in FeSO4.H2O is (10.0/277.9) = 0.036 mol
    ( mr of FeSO4.H2O is 277.9)

    Therefore no of mol of fe oxidised is 0.036-0.0142 = 0.0218

    So % oxidised is (0.0218/0.036)x100 = 60.56%

    Hope that makes sense, I've just done it

    Hey all these posts about the synoptic stuff is confusing me i asked my teacher about which synoptic stuff will come up and he said it will be CHEM2 - and he reckons it will be equilibrium stuff to go with the redox equilibria.
    and obviously moles from CHEM1 is a given.

    Anything else that people have been told might make an appearance?

    The outer electrons can absorb light, and get excited to a higher energy level.
    They can absorb a certain frequency, so they could absorb blue, and so red light would be reflected off

    That's all you need to know really i think!

    If there is anything you don't understand just say. I got a little lazy on the rounding - But they allow anything from 60 to 61 anyway.

    Electron will absorb Photons of light, the gain energy equal to the energy the photon had according to E=hf
    when the electrons have this energy they enter an exited state where they move up the energy levels in the orbitals, after a given time they will de-excite fall down the levels and release photons of light, these will have a different frequency to the ones taken in as some energy was used going up the energy levels and as E-hf the frequency has to change. So in Transition metals they give out light in the visible part of the spectrum.
    It all depends on what frequency of light is given out because each colour has its won frequency.

    Why does red light get reflected if blue light is absorbed?
