AS Level Chemistry Revision Notes

Well, these are just some, rather extensive, notes that I've done for myself so that I can do the best I can in my January exam. Hopefully they'll be of some use to you lot and I hope they help all other Chemistry students out there.... :)

There's one topic we haven't covered which is Periodicity so that's the only one missing but this includes;

Atomic Structure, Mass Spectrometer, Electron Configuration, Structural Isomerism, Naming Organic Compounds, Shapes of Molecules, Bonding, States of Matter, Alkanes, Alkenes and much much more!

PARTICLES

c All elements consist of small particles called ATOMS
c Atoms are made up of SUB-ATOMIC particles/ FUNDAMENTAL particles
c PROTONS ­ Relative Mass (1), Relative Charge (+1)
c NEUTRONS ­ Relative Mass (1), Relative Charge (0)
c ELECTRONS ­ Relative Mass (1/1840), Relative Charger (-1)
c Number of…

c ISOTOPES ­ atoms with SAME Atomic Number but DIFFERENT Mass Number
c Have same CHEMICAL PROPERTIES because they depend upon the NUMBER and
ARRANGEMENT of ELECTRONS
c May have different PHYSICAL PROPERTIES if they depend upon the MASS OF
THE PARTICLES; e.g. rate of diffusion/ deflection in a magnetic…

MASS SPECTROMETER

c MASS SPECTROMETER is used to:
mDetection of Isotopes
mDetermine RELATIVE ATOMIC MASS
mDetermine RELATIVE MOLECULAR MASS
c IONISATION, ACCELERATION, DEFLECTION, DETECTION ­ IADD
m How Ionisation works:
¤ ELECTRON GUN fires HIGH ENERGY ELECTRONS at gaseous sample
¤ Knock OFF an electron on the gaseous particles ­…

mLighter 35Cl+ ion deflected more than heavier 37Cl+ ion
m Two peaks = reading at m/z=35 for 35Cl+ and at m/z=37 for 37Cl+
mOn earth there's 3-times 35Cl than 37Cl
35 + 37 +
¤ RELATIVE ABUNDANCES = 75% for Cl and 25% for Cl


m RELATIVE ATOMIC MASS:
¤…

CALCULATIONS

c Calculation for value of `x' in Na2CO3.xH2O
Percentage of water in Na2CO3.xH2O = 62.9%
When 100g of Na2CO3.xH2O is weighed out, 62.9g is water and 37.1g is Na2CO3
m Method:
¤ Number of moles of H2O = mass/Mr 62.9/18.0 = 3.49
¤ Number of moles of Na2CO3 =…

m MASS = Ar/Mr x Moles
m Moles = Mass ÷ Ar/Mr
m Ar/Mr = Mass ÷ Moles

c CALCULATION OF THE PERCENTAGE BY MASS OF AN ELEMENT IN A
COMPOUND:
mTo calculate the percentage by mass of K (Krypton) in K2CO3 (Krypton
Carbonate)
m Method:
¤ Mr of K2CO3…

¤ Fe + S FeS
¤ 1 Mole of Fe reacts with 1 Mole of S = 1 Mole of FeS
¤ Number of Iron Moles being used mass/Mr = (5.6/56=) 0.1 Moles
¤ 0.1 Mole of Fe would react with 0.1 Mole of S = 0.1 Mole of FeS…

¤ Mole ratio of NH4Cl : NH3 1:1 moles of NH3 = moles of NH4Cl 0.1
¤ V = nRT/P V = (0.1 x 8.31 x 303)/ (100 x 1000) = 2.52 x10-3 m-3

BONDING

c Aim of atoms when bonding is to OBTAIN 8e- in outer shell ­ gives ELECTRON
2 6
CONFIGURATION of s p (stable OCTET)


c IONIC BONDING:
mIonic bond formed by ELECTRON TRANSFER ­ from METAL to a
NON-METAL (with large difference in ELECTRONEGATIVITY)
mMakes OPPOSITELY CHARGED IONS
mDEFINITION:…
