hey guys,
what/how are we supposed to revise with the 'pre-release material' given?!

What is pre-released material??... thank you

I try and think of them as equations.
Once you know the M+ value, set this equal to the general formula then just evaluate to find n.

If the compound was an alcohol with M+ of 60:
General formula for alcohol CnH2n+1OH

60 = CnH2n+1OH
43 = CnH2n+1 (Subtracted 17=OH)
42 = CnH2n

CH2 = 14
42/14 = 3 = n

The put this pack into the general formula to get
C3H7OH. (propanol)

Then use other m/z peaks to determine if its propan-1-ol or 2-ol.

Hope that made sense. Seems complicated but it works for me - just do loads of practice!!!

3. let's test eachother guys!
4. In questions that ask you to calculate enthalpy change of formation from combustion values, why does oxygen have a value of 0J?

Because oxygen is an element already so the enthalpy change for the formation of an element from an element is zero.

I think its because it doesnt take any energy to form oxygen. oxygen exists in its standard state of a gas, so to convert it into a gas takes no energy.

Oh, My teacher gave it to us and said we should revise from it..?
(this is for OCR salters chemistry.. sorry im new here, not sure if im on right thread..?! )

Yess spot on...

well done

ah wrong thread, this is for the OCR A exam

Oops!
thanks! aha sorry if I confused any of you
11. I need to learn.. remember all the pesky facts

You cannot combust oxygen so it will not have a combustion value

Because oxygen is an element already so the enthalpy change for the formation of an element from an element is zero.
So even though it is the combustion value they give we treat it like a formation value?
14. anyone revising for f324 and f325??

I have concentrated so much time on this one, i am finally happy with ppq marks but i am slacking behind f324 and f325

Enthalpy change = bond enthalpy of reactants - bond enthalpy of products

So

-184 = 679 - bond enthalpy of product

Bond enthalpy of product = 679 + 184
= 863

BUT this is the bond enthalpy of 2HCL

Hope that helped
Thanks so much, i understand it now

This is what I was thinking too!

200 Tonnes of Methane = 200,000,000g of Methane
Moles=200,000,000/16
=12500000 moles of Methane
3 Moles of Hydrogen in the equation, therefore
12500000 X 3=37500000 moles of hydrogen [THEORETICAL]

In the question it says 68.4 tonnes of Hydorgen is produced
68.4 tonnes = 68400000g of Hydrogen
Moles= 68400000/2
=34200000 moles of Hydrogen [ACTUAL]

% Yield= (34200000/37500000) X 100
=91.2%
Sorry but why did u divide the hydrogen by two?

Number of Moles= Mass/RMM
RMM of hydrogen =2

(Also i had already divided it by 1 and my overall answer was almost 200% so i knew I'd gone wrong somewhere)
