    Electrophillic addition - HBr/HCl/HI
    -electrophile attracted to the electron rich region/centre/atom where it accepts a pair of electron to form a covalent bond.
    for reaction
    C4H9OH + HCl = C4H9Cl + H2O why is it nucleophillic substitution?

    The Cl of HCL is slightly electronegative so acts as a nucleophile

    ignore all that I dont know what Im talking about

    1. if u hve nucleophilic substituition and use NH3 would you draw NH2- with a lone pair?

    2.can someobe give me an easy full scoring definition of BOND ENTHALPY and AVG. BOND ENTHALPY.

    3.xplain the importance of controlling global warming caused by atmospheric increase in greenhouse gases (???)

    4. outline role played by chemists ???

    5. PRINCIPLES?!?!?!

    boooorrriiiinggggggggggggg

    there is soo much technicality in this exam...small minor errors will cost you marks. i thought i was confident but now im just plain scared.

    as far as i'm aware electrophillic addition - arrow will go from double c=c bond to the other reactant whereas nucelophilic substitition is where theres a negative ion which attack the back of a halogenoalkane?

    i reckon following the trends of past papers, there'll be loads on the environmental effects of like CFCs PVC etc

    Quick question guys.

    In the revision notes, why did the person do q = - mx c x delta t is it not m x c x delta t?

    you always change it minus at the end of the question anyway so maybe thats why?

    You and me both!

    Hmm questions.

    Why do bond enthalpies have positive values?


    "The rate of a chemical reaction increases as temperature is increased because there are more collisions".

    Discuss tot what extent this statement is true and describe any other factors that should be considered when looking at the effect of temperature on rate of reaction.


    Explain why C02 contributes more to global warming than CH4 even though it has a lower greenhouse factor?

    I thought it was electrophillic substitution as the OH was being substituted for a Cl, but mark scheme says Nucleophillic substitution.

    its M x C x DeltaT

    nah its nucleophilic sub becuase H-CL is non polar and CL has a lone pair of e- it can donate!

    Why do you always change it to minus at the end of the question?

    pretty sure H-Cl has dipols due to large difference in electronegativities, and hetrolytic fission takes place, check the textbook

    Also what are the conditions for all the reactions? Does anyone have like a summary sheet of them all, would be very helpful?

    Why do you always change it to minus at the end of the question?

    (is it always exothermic?)
    rise in temp of surroundings = fall in temp of the system

    if there is a fall in temperature the sign will come out as a minus which would be changed to a positive if you do start temp. minus finish temp. so yeah always swap the sign because you are measuring the surroundingss
