    How did everyone find the Edexcel C2 exam today?

    I think overall it wasn't that bad, a majority of questions were repeated from past papers, although that first 6 marker wasn't great for me.

    Also, for the potassium and water reaction, I put:

    2K + 2 H2O → 2KOH + H2

    Did anyone else get the same?

    it's an isotope
    isotopes explained
    2 extra neutrons in neon 22
    20.2 is closer to 20 than 22 because neon 20 is more abundant ( 90% )

    the relative atomic mass formula

    relative abundance of isotope 1 x its mass + relative abundance of isotope 2 x its mass divided by 100

    the calculation:

    90 x 20 + 10 x 22 / 100
    = 20.2

    for the average atomic masses of the isotope leaving a relative atomic mass of 20.2

    that's what I remember writing off the top of my head. I wrote more I just can't remember.

    Any help in putting together this unofficial markscheme would be appreciated

    I believe the question was about neon-20 (90% of sample) and neon-22 isotopes (10% of sample), which have a relative atomic mass of 20.2 and the structure of neon-22.

    So I think mark scheme will be looking for comments made about them being isotopes, and neon-22 having 10 protons, 12 neutrons (2 more than neon-20) and 10 electrons. Also, as they were looking for comments on structure, you probably could've mentioned the electronic structure (2.8) and that the full shell made it a noble gas.

    To explain the 20.2 relative atomic mass, I just used the calculation to work out relative atomic mass, which was something like:

    (90*20) + (10*22)/100

    You had to put state symbols as well as it was a 3 marker

    That was insanely easy, I'd be surprised if I didn't get 60/60
