    I know it might be kind of late to ask this question, but what calculations do I need for the 'Physical' part of the A Level Chemistry Practical (Titrations, Enthalpy Changes, etc.)?

    Thank you beforehand.

    Go through the specification carefully making notes and identifying each requirement.

    Example

    AQA specification 3.1.2
    students should:
    be able to calculate reacting volumes of gases
    be able to calculate concentrations and volumes for reactions in solutions, limited to titrations of monoprotic acids and bases and examples for which the equations are given
    know that % atom economy = mass of desired product x 100 /total mass of reactants
    be able to calculate reacting masses, % yields and % atom economies from balanced equations


    Here's the full specification
