    Well in the Jan 15 (IAL) paper for example I failed to realise that the NaOH used for titration reacted with the equilibrium mixture of ethanoic acid + HCl acid rather than the initial mixture.

    I also got this one completely wrong (section C):

    June 14 UK or June 14 R has a good question like this. In general, most of the past paper questions are straightforward so you'll have to look at other resources (like PMT quite possibly)

    Guys, has anyone got the jan 16 (IAL)? I will really appreciate it if you could send me the link - its locked on the edexcel website

    Okay firstly work out the number of moles of HCl to begin with. This is
    (volume * concentration / 1000) = (10*1.0)/1000 = 0.01 moles of HCl.

    Since HCl is a strong acid, it will dissociate completely, meaning that the concentration of HCl = H+ ion concentration.

    What will the concentration of [H+] be in 990cm^3 of water?

    Rearranging the formula above, you get:

    Concentration = (moles * 1000) / volume.
    = (0.01 * 1000) / 990 = 0.01010101.....

    pH = -log([H+]) = -log(0.0101010101...)

    Therefore the pH = 1.99... = 2 when you round it up. So the answer should be C!

    My thoughts are:

    a), if ΔS(soln) is exothermic then ΔS(surr) will be positive, so ΔS(total) will be more likely to be positive overall.

    b), at the equivalence point, all of the initial base/acid has been neutralised by the added acid/base, so at the half equivalence point half of the initial base/acid has been neutralised. So [HA] = [A-] .
    Thanks for replying but one quick question - how is ΔS(soln) linked to ΔS(surr)? Is there an equation?

    Ahhhh i get it now, thanks so much!

    Well, ΔS(soln) can be thought of as the enthalpy change, which would then be used in calculating ΔS(surr) using the forumula:
    -ΔH/1000 where ΔH is in joules per mole. That's how I think they're linked

    could someone please explain Q10?

    does B come out the fastest bec its the most polar one and the eluent is polar and polar substances 'dissolve' in polar substances?

    Yeah I just realised it was supposed to say ΔH(soln), not ΔS(soln).

    But yes I do believe The Don P. K. is correct in that ΔH(soln) can be used in the formula to calculate ΔS(surr).

    Is Gibbs Free Energy part of our specification, it's mentioned in the textbook but not in the specification?

    It's just another way of doing feasibility questions, don't worry about it

    I see! So I guess we could be asked to use to use the formula ΔGθsys = ΔHθsys – TΔSθsys in the exam?
