So far I am completely confused! It's so different from National 5

Can Anyone Help With This Question -
The Volume of 0.22g of propene is 118cm^3. Calculate the volume of 2 moles of propene.
I got 22.527 litres

I got 48 litres.

n=v/MV
n= 0.118/24
n=4.9x10-3moles

Then went with proportion, so:

4.9x10-3 moles gives you 118cm3 as told in the question.
So 2 moles gives you 48000cm3.


I'd say Higher is far easier than Nat5 don't worry!
Where did you get the 24 from?

I think it's A.

H2SO4: NaOH
ratio 1:2 in balanced equation

NaOH concentration is 0.4M
so H2SO4 concentration is 0.2M

calculate moles of H2SO4:
n=cv
n=0.1 x 0.05 (convert 50mL to litres gets you 0.05)
n=0.005 mol

v=n/c
v=0.005 mol/0.2M
v=0.025L =25mL

I have 2 chem teachers, neither of which I’m particularly keen on. They can teaching the course in a funny order and don’t explain things at all. I’m worried because I need an A in the subject this year and don’t know if I can do it. I’m fairly good at independent studying but it’s hard to learn the course that way

I had this for my AH course, it may seem disjointed at first but if you are as good at independent study as you say it shouldn't be too hard to come up with a way to divide the course into each topic and go over it systematically like that. Surely the 2 teachers are not just teaching the same unit randomly, there will be some sort of thought out plan to it! Are the 2 teachers teaching 2 separate units? or 2 separate topics?

Hey thanks for replying! One of them is teaching unit 2 and the other unit 3 (we’ve already learnt unit 1). It’s just a bit stressful as I essentially have double the workload to keep on top of. As well as the actual classes, they aren’t very good at explaining things. For example, we did an experiment where potassium dichromate was added to a primary, secondary, and tertiary alcohol and the teacher didn’t explain why we were doing it or the chemistry behind the reaction. Sorry I’m going off on a rant😂😂

My chem teacher is the most pointless **** ever, basically teach the course yourself

See for the exam if 90/120 is required for an A does this mean that a total of 30 marks can be lost in both assignment and the paper? Does each mark in the paper contribute 1/120?

a total of 30 marks can be lost since the paper is actually only out of 100 and the other 20 marks come from the assignment

B. It is soluble in a polar solvent.

D. It has a high boiling point
They all sound true because most chlorides with ionic bonding do have those properties (high melting and boiling points, solubility in polar solvents, etc.) but the only one that proves it is ionic is A.

B - Polar covalent molecules have this property
C - Covalent networks have this property too
D - Covalent networks again
