ii. Excited electrons move to a higher energy state- they are promoted
iii. The electromagnetic radiation absorbed by each atom has a definite frequency
related to the difference in energy levels by E = hv

Black background with coloured lines
Lines go down
Lines get closer at…

i. Poison is strongly absorbed onto the catalyst surface
ii. The poison blocks the catalyst surface, preventing reactants from bonding.

13. Mass spectrometer
Sample inlet-
Ionisation area- electrons produced by a heated filament bombard any atoms or
molecules in the sample and knock electrons out. Cations (positive ions) are formed:…

i. Calculate energy transferred using:

Energy transferred (J) = m x c x T

Mass, specific heat capacity and change in temperature

ii. Calculate the moles of the fuel used using:

M oles = Mass ofMr
fuel used

iii. Enthalpy of combustion (kJmol¯¹)

=energy transferred (kJ )
moles of fuel…

17. Structural isomerism
Chain isomerism- i.e. unbranched chains to branched chains
Positional isomerism- i.e. pentan-1-ol and pentan-2-ol
Functional group isomerism- same molecular formula but the functional groups are
different. i.e. ethanol and methoxymethane

18. Increasing octane number
i. Produces shorter, branched alkane + alkene
ii. Use of zeolite catalyst…

o Outermost electrons is further away from the nucleus down a group
o This makes electrons less firmly held by the nucleus (weaker attraction)
o Therefore electrons require less energy to remove
Isotopes-atoms of the same element that have the same number of proton but different
numbers of neutrons
