    For the last question I put butanoic acid instead of 2 methyl propanoic acid :facepalm: Figured it out 30 seconds after the exam finished ffs

    How many marks will I lose? 2? 3?

    My teacher said that you'd only lose like 1 mark for that 2 marks at the most. I think

    I wrote : 1st line: NO(radical) +O3 -> 03(radical) + NO
    2nd line: O3(radical)+N2 -> NO(radical) + O2
    So O3(ozone) is lost (not sure if 100% right)

    I'm pretty sure it was. All the peaks (including 43) work fine with butanoic acid. I thought the mention of a secondary carbocation was just useless information - there isn't carbocations present in carboxylic acids anyway, only during reaction mechanisms right?
    Thanks

    They could useful though cause the carbocation can talk about the fragments

    in the enthalpy profile diagram did it say not to label the activation energy?
    Yep ,

    Given that you have used the evidence appropriately you should lose just one.

    Nah, this isn't right sorry it's no• +03 goes to n02• +02........NO2•+O goes to no• + 02

    Liked that exam
    Here's what I remember
    Pa=4.46*10^6
    rate at 200 seconds was 0.0022
    1.85g for the mass of something (srco3?)
    percentage yield 67.4%
    metal was calcium
    z-pent-2-ene (compound A)
    last question compound C was butanoic acid?
    The major product was the one where Br went on the 2nd carbon (6 marker curly arrow method)
    i got butanoic acid for last one, but apparently it was a branced structure :/ cause it said something about secondary carbocation causing the biggest peak in the ms.

    ... I talked about Van Deer Waals and said Phosporus' molecule is heavier and have more electrons

    Decrease because down the group from calcium the number of moles decreases

    Yes, I'm pretty sure that's right. I didn't actually put that, but I definitely remember reading that in the textbook

    I'm pretty sure it was 2-methylpropanoic acid as butanoic acid does not produce any secondary cations
