    Does anybody know how to work this out? It was from the new Aqa Chem AS paper 2016
    Thank You

    Thank You
    The working is right there in front of you!

    Density = mass/vol

    Thus

    mass = density x volume

    as the density is given in g cm-3 you have to use the volume in cm3

    Once you have the mass you divide by the relative mass of ethanol to get the number of moles.

    Then you multiply by the energy per mol.

    Ohh okay thanks but why multiply at the end? 🤔

    You work out how many moles of ethanol you are burning. More ethanol = more energy release.

    Every one mole of ethanol releases 1371 kJ

    Therefore the total energy release is the energy released by 1 mol multiplied by the number of moles being burned.

    Oh thank you I understand where that's coming from 🤗

    The last image is the question for the graph above

    The last image is the question for the graph above
    Concentration of the second ethanoic acid is larger therefore the reaction will be faster (steeper slope)

    Moles in the second case = 0.8 x 0.02 = 0.016 mol
    Moles in the first case = 0.6 x 0.03 = 0.018 mol

    Therefore in the second case the graph will not achieve the same height as the first case (less hydrogen produced)

    So you need a steeper slope with a levelling off lower (8) than the first case.(9)
