When some metals in RS react with dilute acid, hydrogen ions (H+) is displaced from the acid solution. It is between copper and lead
27 of 76
Why is carbon in the reactive series? Where?
It is used for extracting metals from oxides, which is a displacement reaction- between aluminium and zinc
28 of 76
What does OIL RIG mean?
Oxidation is loss, reduction is gain- in oxidation electrons are lost from atom but oxygen added and reduction electrons are gained but oxygen lost
29 of 76
Why is oxidation the loss of electrons?
When oxygen and metals bond, the metal wants to lose electrons and oxygen wants to gain 2 electrons so the metal gives electrons to oxygen

Rock that contains worthy amount of metal to extract
35 of 76
How is copper in copper ore concentrated before extraction and purification?
Copper ore ground to powder, mixed with water, add chemical which makes copper repel water, air bubbles put through solution, copper compound (probably bonded to oxygen or sulfur) float to top, rock sinks, scrape copper compound off top of solution
36 of 76
What factors assess if it is worth extracting metals from ore?
How easy, how much metal in ore, demand for metal
37 of 76
What does the method of extraction of metal from ore depend on?
Where it is in the RS
38 of 76
What is carbon used for?
Extracting less reactive metals from their oxides in industry by displacement of less reactive metals
39 of 76
What must be added to the reaction of carbon + metal oxide for the reduction reaction to occur?
Heat which produces metal + carbon dioxide
40 of 76
Why is carbon not used for the reduction of tungsten oxide?
Because carbon reacts with tungsten when produced so hydrogen used instead- the tungsten produced is pure
41 of 76
Which metals aren’t extracted from their ores and oxide by carbon, what is used instead?
Aluminium, magnesium, calcium, lithium, sodium, potassium- electrolysis used because carbon is less reactive than these metals
42 of 76
Why do copper, gold and silver not react with dilute acid?
They are less reactive than the hydrogen in the acid so they can’t displace hydrogen from compound (eg HCl)
43 of 76
What is a salt?
Compound formed when the hydrogen (from acid) is partially or wholly replaced by metal- positive metal ion and negative ion from acid
44 of 76
Metal + acid = ?
Salt + hydrogen
45 of 76
Which metals are never added to acid?
Alkali metals- explosive and dangerous
46 of 76
How do you produce iron chloride salt crystals from salt solution?
Heat salt solution over tripod and gauze and Bunsen burner, ontop of water bath, evaporated some water from salt solution, crystals appear around edge, stop heating, rest of water evaporate at room temp and dap filter paper
47 of 76
What does it mean to be more reactive?
The is stronger tendency that that element will form a positive or negative ion from losing or gaining electrons easier
48 of 76
What type of displacement reaction is metal + acid?
Redox reaction- metal always being oxidised and hydorgen always being reduced
49 of 76
Is the half equation 2H^+ +2e- -> H2 reduction or oxidising?

59 of 76
How can you make copper sulfate crystals?
Insoluble copper oxide (base as it’s metal oxide) to sulfuric acid, warm, stir, solution goes blue- copper sulfate forming, filter solution- remove excess copper oxide, evaporate water, stop heating as crystals appear, leave to evaporate at room temp
60 of 76
What compound is a base usually?
Metal oxide
61 of 76
What happens with the OH- ions and H+ ions in an alkali + acid reaction?
They react to from water molecules H2O
62 of 76
How can you form ammonium salts instead of metal salts?
React acid + alkali (the alkali is ammonia solution- NH4OH
63 of 76
How can you tell when an acid + alkali reaction is complete?
Use acid/ base indicator- you need the correct amount of acid and alkali so they neutralise (form water and no excess H+ or OH- ions after) - use titration to find volume of acid that neutralises alkali
64 of 76
When acids are added to water what happens to hydrogen?
H+ ions released into solution- these excess H+ ions make the solution acidic
65 of 76
When alkali s are added to water what happens to the hydroxide?
Aqueous hydroxides ions(OH-) formed- these make the solution alkali
66 of 76
What is the pH scale?
Shows acidity or alkalinity by scale of 1(acid) to 14(alkaline) -
67 of 76
What is a pH meter?
Glass probe, dip in solution, electronic pH sensors give digital display of pH on data- loggers and computers- monitor pH changes
68 of 76
What is a concentrated acid?
Acid which contains greater amount of that solute in the same volume of solution
69 of 76
What are 3 strong acids?
Hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, sulfuric acid
70 of 76
What are 3 weak acids?
Ethanoic acid, citric acid, carbonic acid
71 of 76
What is the difference between strong and concentrated acid?
Strong acids ionise completely in a solution (this means all the hydrogen atoms ionise to become H+ ions) whereas concentrated is the amount of solute in the solution volume
72 of 76
How do acids show there acidic properties?
When dissolved in water- they ionise and H+ ions released which makes the acid acidic
73 of 76
What is a weak acid?
Most of molecules stay as they are- release less H+ so aren’t fully ionised and the reaction of weak acid + water is reversible- ions recombine to form molecules again
74 of 76
What happens when you reduce the concentration of the H+ ions by factor of 10?
The pH value increase by 1- getting weaker and more neutral (7)
75 of 76
If the concentration of H+ ions in acid is 0.1 mol/dm ^3, what is the pH?
1- strong
