i dont think chem is for me to be honest but here we go
two questions:

how do you find chemistry? how are you good at it?
can you give me any tips? revision guides?

here is the question

When Chlorine reacts with trichloromethan, tetrachloromethan, CCL4 is formed

write a 1) The overall equation for this reaction

2)state one essential condition for this reaction

The mechanism for the chlorination of trichloromethan is free-radical substitution, which proceeds by a series of steps. Write equations for the steps named below in this Clorination:

initiation step

first propagation step

second propagation step

a termination step

A chloroalkane, W was shown to contain 37.2 % carbon and 55 % chlorine by mass. The remainder of the compound was Hyrdrogen. Calculate the empirical formula of compound W

part 2 what additional info would be needed to calculate the molecular formula of compound W

1a) CHCl3 + Cl2 -> CCl4 + HCl

b) condition: sunlight

initiation step: Cl2 -> 2Cl

first prop: CHCl3 +Cl => CCl3 +HCl

second prop:

CCl3 +Cl2 => CCl4 +Cl

term:
2 CCl3 =>C2 Cl6

and the calculation:
% of the mass = 7.8 %
molC = 55/ 33.5

so the ratio is 1.55

sorry i'm too tired to do that

and the last part:

you will need the relative molecular mass

any tips? don't buy any of that bs revision stuff unless you're an E grade candidate and you need all the exam technique you can get

i like chemistry, therefore i enjoy it and do well in it- just practice on the equations and learn all the facts


cobra is also one to listen to - he's very good =D

part 2 what additional info would be needed to calculate the molecular formula of compound W
Percentages divided by r.a.m.:

C: 37.2 / 12 = 3.1

Cl: 55 / 35.5 = 1.549...

H: 7.8 / 1 = 7.8

Dividing by smallest:

C: 3.1 / 1.549... = 2.001...

Cl: 1.549... / 1.549... = 1

H: 7.8 / 1.549... = 5.035...

Therefore ratio of C:Cl is 2:1:5, and empirical formula is C2H5Cl.

To find the molecular formula of the compound, you need its relative formula mass.
