Hiii couldn't find a thread for this exam so I created this one.
Does anybody have the question paper and mark scheme for the Jan 2013 unit 1 exam ??

Is this everyone's first time or are they resitting it? I'm resitting it as I got a C in January...hopefully I'll get an A this time round!

Hi guys. I sat this paper in January and failed It was awful compared to past papers. There were some stupid mc questions and I was wondering if anyone could help explain this one to me. Apparently the answer is A (z+4 neutrons) but how if neutrons = mass number - atomic number then surely 2z+4 - z is not z + 4.

Im very bad at maths so it might just be me

An isotope of an element, atomic number z, has mass number 2z + 4. How many
neutrons are in the nucleus of the element?
A z + 4
B z + 2
C z
D 4

D 4

Well firstly an isotope has the same number of protons but different number of neutrons. Replace z for any number i.e 6 and since z is the atomic number this element would be Carbon. then it says it has mass number 2z + 4, so when you replace z with 6 you get 16. and 16 is 4 more than 12 (which is Carbon's mass number) so it must be z + 4.

Hope this helped

Hi guys
I was just wondering if someone could tell me how to answer the multiple choice questions when it asks you to work out the number of moles of a substance and gives you the Avogadro constant?

You work it out using:
Moles= no. of particles /Avogadro constant

then tick the box with the answer that matches yours (sorry, couldn't resist) .
Be on the lookout for whether they have given you atoms or molecules to work with.

I'm a resitter, simply to boost up my grade for A2.
I'm doing Unit 5 in a month too, so Unit 1 is a good like memory jogger.
I really need full UMS in this if I want an A, so it's a tight margin.

Any questions, you can ask me and I'll do my best to try and answer them

I'm resitting too

Will be starting revision tomorrow for this... I need as many UMS as I can get As at the moment I'm on a D & need a B !

But still it's good practice anyway I guess I hope this thread become more active!

Good luck with revision everyone !

Hi

In January there was this question on bond enthalpies and can someone please explain how you calculate them. I always thought you multiply each value by the amount of that type of bond e.g. for C2H6 there would be 6 x C-H bond. Ive attached the question and answer so id appreciate any help. thanks

You were on the right track, so you just need to follow up on it.
On the left hand side (LHS), you have 6 C-H bonds and 1 Cl-Cl bond which equates to-> 6(413)+243
On the RHS, you have 5 C-H bonds, 1 C-Cl bond, and 1 H-Cl bond which equals to-> 5(413)+346+432
LHS=2721
RHS=2843
Enthalpy Change=LHS-RHS
2721-2843=-122 kJ mol^-1

Bonds broken subtract bonds made.
It's an exothermic energy change, so

You're right for the 6 x C-H bond which equals 2478 KJmol-1
Then 243 for the Cl-Cl bond KJmol-1

The sum of these is 2721.

On the products side it's 5 x 413 = 2065 KJmol-1
+346 + 432 = 2843 KJmol-1

Then, we do 2843 - 2721 = 122 KJmol-1

It's an exothermic energy change because more more energy is used to break bonds, than make the bonds, so we change the sign to -, so it's -122 KJmol-1
