Do we need to memorize Planck's constant for our exams or will it be given to us like R=8.31 is given to us

you dont need to memorize it. They will give it to you in the question.
Theres only two types of questions they can ask you using delta E=hv.

The first being a standard calculation - remember the units for v can be /s or Hz.
The second being describe what each term means - delta E = energy change/difference between split orbitals. h = plancks constant and v = frequency of light absorbed..

They can also say, using your knowledge of this equation, explain why transition metals are coloured. This is always three marks saying 1. energy is absorbed from visible light to excite electrons. 2. from the d orbital to higher energy levels. 3. light that is reflected/transmitted/not absorbed can be seen :. the TM is coloured.

If you have anymore questions let me know

so I was wondering, how do you know how many sig figs to answer to? is it the lowest used in the question or the highest?

depends which question.
If you're calculating ph, always do it to 2 decimal places.
For any other one, i tend to just go for whatever they have used in the question (usually 3 sig figs).

but sometimes they use 3&2 sig figs in the question which one would you go for in this case?

Hey man, sorry to bother you again but i made a post which got no replies but i thought you'd be the best person to ask anyway.
i was wondering if you'd be able to tell me which practicals, in the past 2 years, have been examined so we can get a better idea of which practicals are most likely to come up?
Many thanks
