does anyone have an idea about the topics that might come up this year?
i feel like the 6 marker will be either ab hydrogen fuel cells, titration method, or structure and bonding. I'm praying its on structure and bonding though

What is the hydrogen fuel cells about? Could you please brief me?
Original post by Floriferous1
What is the hydrogen fuel cells about? Could you please brief me?
Basically:
•There is a cell (2 electrodes connected by a wire)
•Hydrogen enters on lhs, where it is oxidised to H+ ions
•Oxygen enters on rhs
•The H+ ions move across the centre of the Hydrogen fuel cell, through an electrolyte
•The hydrogen ions react with the oxygen to form water
•This creates a current

Also must know advantages + disadvantages:

Advantages:
•Not toxic to dispose of, as doesn’t contain toxic chemicals
•Won’t contribute to global warming, as water is only product
etc…

Disadvantages:
•Dangerous to store, as Hydrogen is explosive when mixed with air
•Difficult to store hydrogen, as it is a gas
•High cost to refuel in comparison to lithium ion batteries
etc…

•Distillation
•Chromatography
•Hydrogen Fuel Cells
•Cells / batteries in general
•Allotropes of carbon
•Bond enthalpy changes
•Any of the calculations
•pH and types of indicators
•States of matter and changes of state

guys could someone help me out with organic chemistry

Yes, what part?
Tbh I would probably revise a method for making salts as that's come up nearly every year

I think titration is likely to come up as a practical, the last time it was on a paper was 2019.

thats paper 2, this thread is for paper 1. pretty sure theres a paper 2 thread
I feel like titration and electrolysis are probably gonna come up this year
Do we need to know the reactivity series???

Do we need to know the reactivity series???

Have you checked the spec?
Original post by Talkative Toad
Have you checked the spec?

When metals react with other substances the metal atoms form positive ions. The reactivity of a metal is related to its tendency to form positive ions. Metals can be arranged in order of their reactivity in a reactivity series. The metals potassium, sodium, lithium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and copper can be put in order of their reactivity from their reactions with water and dilute acids. The non-metals hydrogen and carbon are often included in the reactivity series. A more reactive metal can displace a less reactive metal from a compound. Students should be able to: recall and describe the reactions, if any, of potassium, sodium, lithium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and copper with water or dilute acids and where appropriate, to place these metals in order of reactivity explain how the reactivity of metals with water or dilute acids is related to the tendency of the metal to form its positive ion deduce an order of reactivity of metals based on experimental results. The reactions of metals with water and acids are limited to room temperature and do not include reactions with steam.
