1 of 72

2 of 72
What is the formula to find the number of moles?

4 of 72
What is the percentage composition?
It is the amount of mass of an element in a compound

How can you calculate the percentage composition by mass?
= (atomic mass x no. of atoms) / molar mass (x 100%)
6 of 72
What is an empirical formula?
it gives the smallest number whole number ratio of atoms in a compund
7 of 72
What information do you need to calculate the empirical formula?
the mass of each element or the composition percentage by mass
8 of 72

moles per dm
11 of 72
What is the formula for concentration?

What is a titration used for?
allows you to find out exactly how much acid is needed to neutralize an alkali
16 of 72
Name the 7 things needed for a titration experiment?
Pipette, pipette filler, burette, conical flask, acid, alkali, indicator
17 of 72
What is a pipette and pipette filler used for?
To fill a solution (25cm ) and emptying it into a conical flask.
18 of 72
What is the end-point?
It is when the colour of the solution changes as it has all become neutralised
19 of 72
Name the 2 types of indicators that can be used for titration?
Litmus and Phenolphthalein
20 of 72
What is the error margin when you repeat the titraion?
21 of 72
Why is universal indicator not used in the titration experiment?
It can turn a variety of colours which gradually changes, we need a sudden colour change
22 of 72
Name the colour change when using the different indicators?
Litmus: red to blue Phenolphthalein: clear to pink
23 of 72
What do pH curves show?
shows the pH against the volume of the acid/ alkali added
24 of 72
What standard apparatus is used when collecting gases?
a conical flask
25 of 72
What can you used a gas syringe to collect?
Collect pretty much any gas. Give volume accurate to nearest cm
26 of 72
What can be a problem when using a gas syringe?
If the reaction is vigorous, it can blow of the plunger out of the syringe
27 of 72
Name and describe another collection method of gases?
upturned measuring cylinder or burette - delivery tube bubbles gas into cylinder/ gas jar filled with water
28 of 72
Name a gas which wouldn't be suitable for using an upturned cylinder?
Ammonia/ hydrogen chloride- dissolves in water
29 of 72
Why would a burette be more accurate than a cylinder?
can measure to the nearest 0.1cm
30 of 72
What experiment can you use to measure the mass of gas?
mass balance
31 of 72
Explain how you would use mass balance?
A gas is released, the mass disappearing is measured on the balance. Most accurate but releases gas into air
32 of 72
What volume is 1 mole of gas occupied in?
One mole always occupies 24dm at room temperature (25 C) and pressure (1 atm)
33 of 72
What formula can use you use to find no. of moles in a gas?
no. of moles = volume of gas / 24
34 of 72
Why might there be some reactant left if the reaction has stopped?
When the reaction stops, one of the reactants is used up and the others are just excess
35 of 72
What is the limiting reactant?
It is the reactant used up in the reaction
36 of 72
Explain why when you halve the amount of limiting reactant, the gas produced also halves
The amount of product formed is directly proportional to the amount of limiting reactant.
37 of 72
How can you tell a reaction was fast on a graph?
Faster rates of reaction are shown by steeper curves
38 of 72
What is a reversible reaction?
It is when the products of the reaction can react themselves to produce the original reactants
39 of 72
Define the term 'equilibrium' in a reaction
It is when the forward reaction is going at exactly the same rate as the backwards reaction
40 of 72
Why is there no overall effect during the reaction?
At equilibrium, both reactions are still happening. This means the concentrations have reached a balance .:. won't change
41 of 72
What is a closed system?
When none of the products or reactants can escape
42 of 72
Name 3 things that can change the position of the equilibrium
Temperature, Concentration and Pressure (gases only)
43 of 72
Explain why adding a catalyst doesn't change the position of equilibrium?
Catalyst speeds up forward and backward reaction by same amount .:. reaches equilibrium quicker
44 of 72
What happens to the equilibrium when you decrease the temperature?
It will try to move in the exothermic direction to produce more heat
45 of 72
What happens to the equilibrium when you increase the pressure?
Equilibrium moves to the side where there are less moles of gas to reduce pressure
46 of 72
What happens to the equilibrium when you increase the concentration of the reactants?
The equilibrium tries to decrease it by shifting to the right.
47 of 72
What conditions are needed to give you the most ammonia?
High pressure and low temperature
48 of 72
What process is used to make sulfuric acid?
Contact process
49 of 72
What is made when sulfur dioxide is oxidised?
Sulfur trioxide is made
50 of 72
What temperature is used to make sulfur trioxide?
compromise temperature of 450 C - to get quite high yield quite quickly
51 of 72
Why is increasing the pressure unnecessary?
It is really expensive and equilibrium is already on the right
52 of 72
What catalyst is used to increase the rate of reaction?
Vanadium Pentoxide Catalyst
53 of 72
What type of ions do acids produce?
Hydrogen ions, H+
54 of 72
What type of acids ionise completely in water? Give an example
Strong acids- nitric, hydrochloric, sulfuric
55 of 72
Why don't weak acids fully ionise?
only small numbers of H+ ions are released
56 of 72
What kind of reaction is the ionisation of a weak acid?
reversible reactions- sets up equilibrium mixture
57 of 72
What does the strength (strong/weak) of an acid tell you?
tells you what proportion of the acid molecules ionise in water
58 of 72
What does the concentration of an acid show you?
it measures how many moles of acid there are in a litre of water.
59 of 72
Why are strong acids better at conducting electricity?
Ions carry the charge so the more ions there are the better it conducts electricity
60 of 72
Why is the rate of reaction slower with a weak acid?
Weak acid releases only a few ions when in water. When magnesium is added, there's a low collision frequency.
61 of 72
What is a precipitation reaction?
when two solutions react together to make an insoluble substance, solution usually turns cloudy
62 of 72
What is the insoluble substance called?
a precipitate
63 of 72
Why does the reaction have to be in solution or molten?
Most reactions involve ions. For ions to react they need to move, they can't move in solids
64 of 72
What is a spectator ion?
Ions that were dissolved in the solution before and after reaction- don't change during
65 of 72
How can you test for sulfate ions?
add dilute HCl and barium chloride, white precipitate = sulfate compound
66 of 72
How can you test for chloride, bromide or iodide?
Add dilute nitric acid and lead nitrate, white = chloride, cream = bromide, yellow = iodide
67 of 72
What type of reaction is used to make insoluble salts?
precipitation reactions
68 of 72
What ions do you need to make an insoluble salt of lead iodide?
lead ions and iodide ions
69 of 72
Why does the ions need to be in a solution?
so they can move around
70 of 72
Why is the reaction not finished when you've mixed the ingredients together?
the salt will be wet and mixed in with other stuff
71 of 72
Describe stage 1 of the precipitate, filter and dry method
Add 1 spatula of compound 1 to test tube and fill with distilled water. Mix until it has dissolved and repeat for compound 2. Tip tubes into beaker and mix till salt precipitates out
