    Can someone explain how to balance H+ + I- + NO2- ---> OH- + I2 + 2NO


    Its the last question in January 2011
    First balance the number of nitrogens:
    H+ + I- + 2NO2- ---> OH- + I2 + 2NO

    Then balance the number of hydrogens:
    2H+ + I- + 2NO2- ----> 2OH + I2 + 2NO

    Then balance the Iodines:
    2H+ + 2I- + 2NO2- -----> 2OH + I2 + 2NO

    Then the oxygens:
    2H+ + 2I- + 2NO2- -----> 2OH- + I2 + 2NO

    Check that the charges are balanced and then you're done.

    was that your first attempt at JAN 2013?
    Hi

    Am I correct in thinking that in buffers, Pka=Ph because when the acid dissociates it gives equal concentrations of the acid and its base?

    not necessarily no, it doesnt always give equal concentrations

    But in the book on page 153 it says that?

    Any predictions for things that might come up tommorow that haven't already in recent past papers?

    How is everyone preparing for it today? Past papers?

    How do you know you have to balance the hydrogens, is there not only one on each side?

    I worked out how to do it, using kw again but I got the right answer this time. I dunno how I didn't get this answer first time, must have forgotten to log it or something.
    So you're finding pH, [H+]= kw/[OH-]
    [OH-]=100x[H+], kw=1.00x10^-14
    so [H+]=1.00x10^-14/100[H+]
    [H+]^2= 1.00x10^-14/100
    [H+]= square root of 1.00x10^-14/100
    Then you minus log the [H+], -log10(1x10-8
    which gives 8
    Very nice :congrats:

    But it has to be on the spec which surely these aren't in this way?

    from the markscheme we have to divide the moles of V by five how do you know that you have to divide by 5
    the sample titrated against the MnO4 was a 5th (10cm^3) of the original solution (50cm^3)

    Lattice enthalpy:
    The enthalpy change that occurs when one mol of an ionic molecule is formed from gaseous ions.

    Enthalpy change of hydration is always exothermic because bonds are formed?

    correct



    No effect on Kc as Kc only changes by/ is affected by temperature.


    1) Balance the following equation using oxidation numbers

    Pt + HNO3 + HCL -----> H2ptCl6 + NO2 + H2O

    Using quadratic equation to find pH

    Ka=[H+][A-]/[AH]
    Ka=[H+]^2/[AH-H+]
    Ka[AH-H+]=[H+]^2
    [H+]^2-Ka[-H+]-Ka[AH]
    Use quadratic
    I doubt it will come up but you never know

    Guys please can someone clear this up for me... I know the half equations for a hydrogen oxygen fuel cell are:
    2H+ + 2e- ---> H2
    2H+ +2e- +0.5O2 ---> H2O
    but I'm confused as to which ones occur at the anode and cathode. My teacher started off by saying the first one occurs at the anode and the second at the cathode but then confused me by saying that it doesn't happen at the normal electrode or something??? :/
    Thanks
