OCR Chemistry B Salters Pre-release Revision 2013

Here are some questions my teacher created about the pre-release, by looking at previous papers. I have tried to answer them as best as I could, but if you have any corrections or different answers please let me know!

Thankyou! Abi ***

and NO2. How can you account for this?
9. Name one of the molecules produced in photochemical smog and an
associated problem (not from the extract).
10. a) Write an equation for the reaction of OH with ammonia.
b) Which step in a radical reaction does this show?

1. Homolytic fission
2. First find frequency:
Wavelength() x Frequency (v)= Speed of Light (c)
v= 3.0x10^8 ÷ 100 v= 3.0x10^6 Hz
Then put frequency into E=hv
E= (6.629x10^-34) x (3.0x10^6) = 1.99x10^-27 J
3. N N
4. N N O
5. NH3 + H20 NH4 + OH
6. a) -1 b) +4 c) -5 d) +2 e) -3
7. The molecule has an unpaired electron.

27 x 24 = 648 dm^3 (24dm^3 is the volume of 1 mole of any gas at
b) 648 is 21% of air that is needed. Therefore :
21/100 x ? = 648 ? = 3085.7 dm^3

2NO + 4e N2 N= NO +2 N2 0
CO CO2 + 4e C= CO +2 CO2 +4
N is being reduced and C is being oxidised, because N gains electrons and C
looses electrons.
25. The greenhouse effect is where the planet is heating up because
gases such as N2O are absorbing infra red radiation emitted from the
earth and turning the radiation into kinetic energy as their bonds
vibrate because of the radiation.

oh my god that is a lot of questions. I've only read the document once and thats it.


This is a great way just to review everything that it mentions in the pre-release! 


This was so helpful! thankyou
