    No in general. Because sometimes the 3d orbital comes after. How would you know when to write 3d after 4s2
    you can before of after 4s

    It doesn't matter, stylistically I think it looks better 4s^2 3d^10 if there are no p orbital electrons and better 3d^10 4s^2 4p^6 f there are. But yeah, it shouldn't matter the mark schemes will have both, and I don't think I've seen any elements heavier than zinc in a past paper (other than the halogens and group 2, but we weren't asked for electronic structure!)

    Could someone help me with this question please? http://gyazo.com/5b8aca37091d74dc3e68fdb651e64a05

    Answers are SO4^2 and ClO2^- but I don't understand how this corresponds with the oxidation numbers..could someone help pls?
    You know that it's going to be SOx2- (where x is undefined). The oxidation state of S is six, and the overall charge is 2-. Oxygen is usually 2-, so (+6) + x(-2) = -2 ... x = 4. I hope that helps.

    How would you answer the following questions for 3 marks each:
    Explain why the first ionisation energy of group 6 is less than that of group 5 elements?
    Why is the first ionisation energy of group 3 lower than group 2??
    Thanks

    How do you find out the relative abundance? Anyone? I kind of understand how to for percentage abundance, but not when it's not percentage!!

    The question is m/z 113 and m/z 115. the relative atomic mass is 114.5. whats the relative abundance!!!!!!

    Energy required to remove the outer electron from each atom in one mole of gaseous atoms of an element to produce one mole of gaseous 1+ ions.

    Well, the way I would do it is see the difference between them, which is 2, and the difference between the lowest value and the RAM, which is 1.5. Then I would divide 1.5 by 2 to get 0.75, so that would be the relative abundance of the higher value.
    Therefore: 25% 113 and 75% 115.

    Not very technical, but worked for me :P

    Hi I was just wondering - are we allowed to discuss the papers as soon as they're out? Or are the rules same as GCSE (where they have international students still haven't sat them)?
    I believe after the exam we can dicuss the answer there is no harm there

    Can someone explain dative covalent bonding I have never really got it.
    like how do you work out if it is a dative covalent bond and which element is giving the lone pair of electrons
    can someone explain using phosphine PH3 to form PH4+.
    The specific question is to give the name of the type of bond formed when phosphine reacts with an H+ ion. Explain how it is formed
    Basically Phosphorous has a lone pair of electrons and it donates them to the hydrogen atom
    This is what happens in all dative bonds: a lone pair of electrons is donated to another atom in a covalent
    bond

    The ones you need to know are NH3BF3, H3O-, NH4+ would you like me to draw them and explain?
