    What is heterogeneous catalyst
    A catalyst that doesn't change it's state? :/

    Hey I'm a little stuck on mass spec, on a mark scheme it says that an m/z of 45 indicates the loss of a ch3, but how do you know this??? So confused

    45 doeesn't correspond to ch3. ch3 has an m/z value of 15. 45 is most likely CH2CH2OH+

    The Mr of the compound is 60 (from rightmost peak), so an m/z value of 45 indicates the loss of something with an Mr of 15, which is CH3

    Do we need to know what the states of organic compunds in different reactions are? I know I'm being vague, but is there any specific ones we HAVE to know?

    Yes, h2o is a gas in the hydration of alkenes to form alcohols.

    In Q=mcdeltaT question, if the temperature is endothermic, so like temperature fell from 30'C to 20'C, is the value of T = -10 or +10?

    T = 10.

    Temperature fell, so -10

    Delta something is always positive. If the reaction is exothermic, just remember to put a minus sign before your answer to the enthalpy change.

    Can somebody explain 2b vi?
    I don't understand how we are meant to know what the structure of the compound is...

    Bro, that's just wrong. If the temperature fell, then energy has been used, meaning it is endothermic and the sign on the delta H will be positive.

    Go back and look at the mechanism, but replace the water molecule with ethanol. All should become clear.

    Do you replace the water with CH3O instead of CH3OH, because one of the Hydrogens is used in step 1? Thanks for your help btw

    Nope, CH3OH - that's what it's reacting with.

    Q=mcDeltaT is the absorbed by or lost from the surroundings. Temperature has been lost, so -10 in the equation, gives you a negative value, so the energy absorbed by or lost from the chemical system is simply Q with the opposite sign. From there you can work out the enthalpy change per mole

    EDIT: that sounds confusing as ****. In this case Q is negative because the surroundings have lost energy, and chemical system has gained energy. So Q=-whatever, and DeltaH of reaction is +
