Mark scheme for my teachers chemistry paper ( updated version)

the old version had some errors in some questions, after going through the paper myself again, i corrected these mistakes.

Here's a taster:

b. Silicon has a giant covalent structure which is strong, as giant covalent bonds have to broken which requires
much energy. However, Sulphur has a simple molecular structure with simple van der waals forces between
molecules which are weaker than covalent bonds, so little energy is required to break them.…read more

Al3+ and the delocalised electrons than between Na+ and the
delocalised electrons. ( 2 marks)
Using oil rig : In MnO2 the oxidation number of Mn is +4 and goes to +2 in MnCl2 reduction is gain of electrons, Mn
has gained electrons so its Mn that is reduced. (2) ( oxidation numbers correct and element which is reduced correct)
( species =1 mark , all state symbol =1 mark)

mole of gaseous 1+ ions.…read more

State symbols and correct equation = 2 marks
iii. there is a leap between the 6th and 7th ionisation energies showing start of a new shell .…read more

Here's a taster:

I pyramidal (1)
ii. 3 bond pairs , 1 lone pair, the lone pair repels slightly more than the bond pairs which results in the angle of 107
degrees( 3)
Q7. A. I because they have different numbers of protons in the nucleus
ii. the s block
iii. less because barium has more electrons and there is also more positive protons in the nucleus .which experience
greater atomic attraction, the nucleur charge increases and there is also shielding remains the same.…read more

Here's a taster:

Good conductor because : there are free delocalised electrons between the layers which can move. Covalent
bonding exists between atoms in the layers.
High melt+boil point : because strong covalent bonds must be broken, which requires a lot of energy
Insoluble in water : non polar so not soluble
QRC : any three words spelled correctly and used in context correctly : conductivity, ions, covalent bonds, polar, ionic
bonds, delocalised electrons.…read more
