1 of 55
What kind of hydrocarbon is an alkane?
2 of 55
The general equation of an alkane
C n H 2n+2
3 of 55
The bond of an alkene?
Double bond between carbons
4 of 55
What type of hyrdrocarbon is an alkene?
5 of 55
The general equation of an alkene
C n H 2n
6 of 55
General equation of alcohols
C n H 2n+1 OH
7 of 55
What is a functional group?
The group of atoms in an element that control the characteristics of a chemical reaction
8 of 55
What can be concluded if two elements have the same functional group?
They will react similarly, in a similar way
9 of 55
What is the functional group of alkenes?
Double carbon bond
10 of 55
What is the functional group of alcohols?
OH group
11 of 55
How many bonds from a carbon atom?
4 bonds
12 of 55
How many bonds from a hydrogen atom?
1 bond
13 of 55
Define an isomer
Molecules with the same molecular formula but a different structure or spacial arrangements
14 of 55
What is molecular formula?
Number of atoms in each element
15 of 55
Define a positional isomer
Where the functional group changes position
16 of 55
Define enzymes
Globular protein catalysts that are formed from living cells
17 of 55
What effect does increased temperature have on a reaction?
The atoms have increased energy, increasing the number of collisions over all and how much energy the atoms collide with. This increases the number of successful collisions overall, increasing rate of reaction.
18 of 55
What is optimum temperature?
The temperature the atoms (enzymes) work best at
19 of 55
What is the optimum temperature for enzymes?
Body temperature, 37 degrees
20 of 55
What happens to enzymes at a temperature that is too high?
The enzymes denature and stop working
21 of 55
What use enzymes in biotechnology?
Brewing, baking + milk
22 of 55
What is the break down of glucose by yeast?
23 of 55
What does fermentation produce?
24 of 55
Define yeast
Single-celled, fungi microorganism
25 of 55
What does enzyme do i a fermentation reaction?
Catalyse the break down of glucose to ethanol and carbon dioxide.
26 of 55
What catalyst does fermentation produce?
27 of 55
What is fermentation used for industrially?
Beer and wine
28 of 55
What conditions are needed for fermentation?
Glucose solution, 20-40 degree temperature, no oxygen and 4-7 pH level
29 of 55
How is ethanol extracted from the fermented mixture?
Filtered to remove yeast, then distilled
30 of 55
Explain how distilling extracts just ethanol form a distilled mixture
Ethanol has a higher boiling point than water, so it evaporates and leaves the water behind. A cold condenser will allow the ethanol to condense to a liquid state and be extracted as a liquid
31 of 55
Name the health problems linked to alcohol and excessive drinking
Brain damage, heart disease, cancer and liver/kidney damage
32 of 55
two main problems of excessive drinking?
Liver cirrhosis and alcohol poisoning
33 of 55
Explain alcohol poisoning
Gag reflex, heart rate and breathing is interfered with= choking, coma + death
34 of 55
Explain liver cirrhosis
Liver scarring, long term incurable damage, new tissue cannot grow, prevents liver working efficiently and liver fails
35 of 55
Alcohol social advantages
Tax on booze, income for government to spend
36 of 55
Alcohol social disadvantages
Anti-social behaviour, violence, strain on the NHS and road accidents
37 of 55
How can ethanol be used as a fuel
Feul crops: sugar plants, fermented to produce a bioethanol which can be used as fuel
38 of 55
How is bioethanol carbon neutral?
CO2 taken in by plant when respirating, CO2 released when plant is fermented
39 of 55
What are the waste products of fermentating a sugar crop or other plants?
Water and carbon dioxide
40 of 55
Advantages of Bioethanol as a fuel
Renweable, reduces dependency on non renewable fossil fuel sources
41 of 55
Disadvantages of ethanol as fuel
Land grabbing for fuel crops land, food poverty increase and deforestation
42 of 55
Name the three elements of the fire triangle
Fuel, heat and oxygen
43 of 55
How might one stop a fire?
Take away one of the elements
44 of 55
How would one take away fuel from a fire?
switching electricty or gas supple, 'fire breaking' chopping down area of plant fuel
45 of 55
How would one take away heat from a fire?
Adding a reduction force, water
46 of 55
How would one take away oxygen from a fire?
fire blanket for a small area, CO2 powder for a indoor, chemical or electrical fires, foam
47 of 55
Compare ethanoic and sulfuric acid
They react similarly but Ethanoic is weaker, and so reacts slower and less violently.
48 of 55
What does ethanoic acid produce?
Ethanoate salts
49 of 55
What does sulfuric acid produce?
sulfate salts
50 of 55
Acid+ Alkali
Salt + water (increase in temperature for both)
51 of 55
Acid + Base
Salt + water (Increase temperature, base dissolves faster with sulfuric acid)
52 of 55
Acid+ carbonate
Salt + water+ CO2 (Bubbles of CO2, more with sulfuric)
53 of 55
Acid + Metal
Salt + hydrogen ( Fizzing of hydrogen gas, more for sulfuric and metal reacts faster with sulfuric)
54 of 55
Ethanol does not dissolve, but can be used in solvents to do what?
Make medecin and drugs, preserve biological specimens and manufacture varnishes or perfumes.
