    I've heard of the compound but i've not encountered that mechanism! I'm on AQA by the way
    Ah I see!! You know now

    Hey guys I'm stuck on this one question.

    The fuel tank of one type of hydrogen-powered car holds 70kg of magnesiumhydride. Calculate the volume of hydrogen gas, measured at room temperature and pressure,which would be produced if this amount of magnesium hydride reacted with water.

    MgH2(s) + 2H2O(I) -----> Mg(OH)2(s) + 2H2(g)


    The marking scheme says this :

    Moles MgH2 = 70000 = 2659.6 (2660) (1)

    26.32Moles H2 = 5319.2 (5320) (1) I've gotten to here, but I just cant figure out what to do to get the next answer.

    Volume H2 = 1.28 × 105dm3(1)


    Thanks for any help!

    The answer is expressed in index form. Your value should be somewhere around 128,000 dm3 in standard form. (1.28 * 10^5)

    After you have correctly gotten the moles of H2(g) which is 5319.2 using mole ratio from equation and mol of MgH2 (from your periodic table). Multiply that value by the molar volume at room temperature and pressure (RTP) which is always 24 dm3. You should get: 127,660.8 dm3 which is close enough. You can round up to get 128,000dm3. You can multiply that by 1000 to convert to cm3 if you want.

    So it's (mol of product) * 24 dm3 (Vm) = V

    Saw you guys were a bit confused... One of the above posters are right, Br2(aq) is bromine water, Br-OH? Nope

    I've drawn the mechanism below and am pretty certain it's right, this stuff comes up in A2 too

    That's wrong. Bromine adds anti to a double bond

    EDIT: it should be like this

    when bromine water (Br-OH) is added to an alkene, is it the Br or OH that is the nucleophile in the mechanism for the reaction?
    (Original post by C0balt)
    Br2+H2O->BrOH+HBr

    The Alkene is the nucleophile. The Alkene reacts with the Br-Br. How could BrOH even react? It would dissociate as BrO- and H+. And that equilibrium lies well to the left anyway.

    Well I don't have that much knowledge I'm afraid
    I just remember my teacher saying bromoalcohol forms with bromine water because HOBr inside bromine water whatnot

    HoBr doesn't form. In AQ the bromine adds to one carbon of the double bond forming a carbocation as normal. The bromine is AQ so compared to the other nucleophile present (water) there is very little of the bromine - ions. Therefore the major product involves the water adding to the carbocation and then the extra hydrogen reacts with a lone pair from another water molecule forming an H3O (hydronium) ion

    This is A-level, it's a simplified version. What RagaZ drew is perfectly acceptable (at least for AQA)

    Yeah I found what you were talking about but there is definitely no BrOH involved

    I posted a thread earlier but does anyone want to study f322 with me? Over chat ( kik/Facebook etc ) haha

    Id find it really helpful if we set an amount of work to do and then test one another, discuss past paper results etc

    I need motivation and to have someone to discuss things with would really help

    Would anyone be interested?

    ps idm who but someone who is doing last minute revision etc, not someone who knows the whole spec already

    also for f324, if anyone is interested

    Let me knowww

    No it's not "wrong" because it would get you the marks in an AS exam. Hey, look at the title of this thread, it says AS!! Not Advanced Highers!
