    Integration test went well but I suppose I won't really know till I get my test back!
    Have done another unit 1 bio paper (june 2011) in which I got 41/60 B 🌟💫🌟✴ and made all corrections and read the examiners report after on the questions I went wrong in

    If you want an A overall in A2, try and score extremely high on the unit 1 papers, they are essentially GCSE papers anyhow.

    CHEM 4 is horrible and CHEM 3 isn't much better xD

    Aim for 90+ on the 1 papers, sadly i didnt get that on Chem 1 so im going to struggle to get an A

    Yeah I know! I did all round pretty bad in my mocks but that seems to have motivated me to work harder. If you could would you be able to explain the q=mcdeltat calculation as my teacher has taught it in a way I didn't understand. Essentially we just had to teach ourselves it.

    Sure,

    q=mcΔT is as follows:

    q = enthalpy change, the change of heat
    m = mass of water (g)
    c = specific heat capacity, always given or is 4.2 or 4.18 for water.
    T = change in temperature in kelvin (+273 to degrees Celsius)

    So for example

    if 0.32g (0.01mol) of methanol was burned, and temp of 200g of water rose by 4k, it would be

    q = 200 (mass of water) * 4.2 (given as m) *4 (change in temp)

    =3360J for the 0.01 moles


    if you are given 2 masses and they are pour into each other, the mass of the water is the addition of the two.
    50ml of HCL was add to 50ml of NaOH, the mass would be 100ml, whilest if 0.5g of zinc was added to 100ml of NaOH then the mass would still be 100ml.

    Thanks! Im trying to actually understand it not just learn it and it's proving a challenge
