Applications of Core Principles Of Chemistry is on the 8th of January.

I am doing the exam for the second time and I am intimated by it since I got an E on the first time.

I hope this thread is not too early to discuss the unit so we can help each other for the next two month on this topic.

I'm redoing it in january as well as unit 1..
I'm so scared as i got a D in both unit 1 and 2 :/ (but an A in unit 3)
I'm actually aiming for an A in these two units

what grade are you aiming for?

I am aiming for As as well, who doesn't aim for high grades?

I compared my answers with the ones on the mark scheme for Section A (multiple choice) and I already have a handful of mistakes.

I really do not get a lot of the concepts on this topic I hate it

How's the exam? I found it is very tricky..... esp the bond angle of NMg2+N in the last page.... and the mcq where you have to choose from butan-1-ol and ethan-1,2-diol for higher boiling point. I ve chosen ethan-1,2-diol...

it was tricky..i chose 1,2-diol as well.

i have a few questions i wasnt sure of..
1. what was the purpose of A in the fractional distillation of the oxidation of the primary alcohol?
I wrote that it was for any unoxidised ethanol to escape (?)

2. Was the test for ethanol/ethanoic acid in the presence of ethanal adding PCl5? observation: White steamy fumes (HCl)

3. The epsom calculation.. i got 6.71. anyone else?

4. Why doesn't magnesiums flame test give a colour? I wrote that not enough energy is emmitted in..idek

1.I wrote that it was there so that the pressure does not build up...
2. I wrote PCl5 and Steamy Fumes (Y)
3. i didn't understand that correctly:/
4. It does emit but it's not visible i don't know what else to write..

Overall it was really really TOUGH! :/

1- I wrote to prevent pressure build up.
2- That's correct.
3- I think that's about the correct value, I got the answer and forgot to write it down :/
4- The energy emitted by the electron returning to ground state in Mg does not correspond to a wavelength of light in the visible colour spectrum.

The bond angle for an Mg ion and 4 N on the same plane should be 90, I think but I only realized that during the last few seconds. :/

Yeah , i wrote exactly that.
Also the oxidation of the alcohol to carboxylic acid was that you had to use 2[O] ----> carboxylic acid + water

You seem to have done alright.
I did a lot of things correctly and then just went right ahead and messed up by changing my answers. Should learn to trust my initial instincts. :dry:
