    whoops i did that wrong
    Lol I did too, didn't realise it said it was a Neon atom so I assumed 9 electrons was right...

    Black Substance - I put smoke particulates and soot released by impurities in the hydrocarbon fuel.

    Everyone is saying that it should be Carbon due to incomplete combustion?

    Both credit-worthy?
    I put carbon from incomplete combustion but the soot seems similar so it should be right.

    I did it in pencil at first but changed it to pen after worrying that pencil wouldn't scan in properly. It should be fine though as long as you used an HB pencil

    Something like:
    2Fe2O3+ 3C -> 4Fe + 2CO2
    The thought only dawned on me after they said 'pens down' even though I finished with a lot of time to spare I hope it gets scanned through because it does in maths

    I put that you should put a lid on the beaker to stop energy getting lost to the surroundings
    Sounds good!

    Loved it
    Apart from the question about black stuff on the beaker?
    I thinks it's soot, which is formed from patriculates. Particulates are mostly carbon and you get them from burning fossile fuels

    for the iron/steel one:
    it is alloyed with steel, so layers don't slide over each other, makes it less brittle, more durable and more hard, and also less resistant to corrosion

    is any of that right?

    What about that question with the potassium carbonate and why it didn't turn the limewater cloudy ? I put that the potassium carbonate wasn't thermally decomposed because it didn't reach its bp and so carbon dioxide wasn't produced making the lime water cloudy . We know that there was no thermal decomposition because no mass was lost . Do u think I'd get any marks for that ?

    ah okay, so if I said "burnt carbon particulates from incomplete combustion" is that the same thing?

    yes i said copper oxide someone said it was carbon on here, i was right and yes i wrote thermal decopoistion and said endothermic in brackets just to be secure

    Rip i put 2Fe2 not 4Fe

    Guys please can someone answer this !!!
    Okay so for the last 5 mark question instead of hardening I explained emulsifiers (I know I'm stupid for saying that)
    I said it is used as it makes food have a better texture and so on, do u think I would get some marks ?
    I also explained how double bonds turn into single bonds

    You should get 2 marks for that, i put the it is more flexible, durable and harder than aluminium.

    I dont think you would get any marks for emulsifiers as the question asked why we hardened oils and how it was done. However, you should get some marks for explaining that the C=C bond is broken into a long chain.
