    How did everyone find the paper? I have no idea but it was better than the breadth paper for sure

    I thought it was good the branched carboxylic acid was a bit mean and the pV=nRT question was also a bit mean with all the units

    I did my enthalpy profile diagram the wrong way!! I'm so DUMBBB! The rest of it was okay though. How many marks do you think I've lost for that question? I am so annoyed at myself for getting it wrong!!!
    Also what did you guys get for the structure at the end?

    Oops :/

    I got ethyl ethanoate (ester). What's the difference regarding IR spectra and mass spectra? They both have the same molecular formula.

    What enthalpy profile diagram? Did I miss a page or something?

    Edit: oh, you mean the Hess cycle?

    Yeah that one! But I just looked in book and I thiink I just drew the arrow going downwards instead of upwards so not as bad as I thought!

    I just googled the name

    The specification says we don't need to be able to name esters, carboxylic acids, acid anhydrides etc, so a structural formula and the word 'ester' should be fine I would guess.

    Wait, what was the question? I thought they gave you combustion and asked you to work out formation, so aren't the arrows supposed to point downwards?

    Okay that's alright then. But I thought it was a carboxylic acid not an ester?

    Ohh noo I wasn't talking about the Hess's cycle, it was the enthalpy profile diagram.

    Also Jamesinatr when did you have to work out the enthalpy change of formation? I do not remember a question on that!?

    I guess it is then. Do you remember what the IR peak was?

    I got ethyl ethanoate as well

    For an O-H bond, does the peak always have to be broad because it wasn't in the last question

    I found the c=o peak and the o-h peak I don't remember the exact numbers but it was in the range on the formula sheet.

    The o-h peak should have been broad then but it was not. I found no o-h peak.

    Same, because it said in brackets it should be broad that's why I got a C=H (c-h?) bond instead
