Hi just wondering if someone could help me, by looking through my textbox it says; enthalpy change of formation is 'sum of enthalpy of PRODUCTS - sum of enthalpy of REACTANTS'
However I have come across this question;
The standard enthalpy change of formation of hexane can be determined indirectly.
Calculate the standard enthalpy change of formation of hexane using the standard
enthalpy changes of combustion below.

substance Hc / kJ mol–1
C –394
H2 –286
C6 H14 –4163
Equation; 6C + 7H2 -------> C6H14
However I got +203 when I did it with the original equation??? Is it because all the reactants/product are minus so the answer follows? Or because the forward reaction is exothermic so the H change follows?? Little confused
If you could help in anyway I would be very greatful!!! Exam tomorrow :O!!!
the equation is saying the products - reactants using combustion values
so if youve drawn a hess's law cycle, the arrows should be going down

I got a medium B in Jan
Got like 39 on coursework

What do I need to do in this exam for an A? Will scraping an A be enough or do I have to smash it
240 ums for A

Med b assuming that's 46 raw marks so 68 ums

39/40 is 59 ums

That's a hess's law question, so either draw the triangle with the arrows pointing down or remember deltaHc is reactants-products. The equation you stated is only for bond enthalpies.

yea im resitting unit 2 are u?
yes and resitting from yr 11 believe it or not

Say we get a question on how scientists are trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions Would you say this:

- Carbon Capture and Storage is being developed
- Examples of CCS include carbon being stored deep in the oceans, geological formations, reacting with metal oxides.
- Educating society of how to reduce these greenhouse emissions
- use hybrid cars as this is a much efficient way of travel and releases less greenhouse gases.
- Government are being informed and Kyoto and Montreal protocol are in place which reduce countries who signed up release less greenhouse emission
- uses of CO2 are being developed such as a blowing agent

yep those are fine

Sorry to butt in out of the blue,were the PowerPoint things any good ?

- moles/molar mass.
- q=deltaH x n (when calculating n multiply your previous answer by 7 as theres 7 moles of co2 in the equation u wrote for the other question)
- volume = n x 24

use those equations, if you're still stuck lemme know.
is 'i' 20mol?
9. (Original post by needtosucceed=))
what was your ums for unit 1?
Literally no idea lol..
10. (Original post by Jonma)
Do you have to learn all of the fractions and their uses in fractional distillation, or just the process? I noticed that a fact recall for it has never come up.
nope.

correct

They were really good, thanks. Basically memorised the mark schemes haha

lol fair enough. you should be fine if you scrape an A, ur practicals are high
14. (Original post by needtosucceed=))
correct
yay thanks

16. Hey!

I got 49/60 unit one (72 ums) and 37/40 in pracs (dont know what UMS)

Anyone got any idea of what raw/ums mark i'd need for an A?
17. Like if you learn more on student room than in lessons!!! Lool
18. Link to January 2013 paper and mark scheme anyone ? Thank you
