Chemistry Paper 1 Topic 4

What is oxidation?
the reaction with oxygen
1 of 15
What is reduction?
the removal of oxygen
2 of 15
Combustion is always...
3 of 15
What is the reactivity series?
4 of 15
The more reactive the metal...
the less resistant it is to oxidation
5 of 15
metal + water =
metal hydroxide + hydrogen
6 of 15
What is a redox reaction?
when oxidation an reduction occur simultaneously
7 of 15
Give two examples of redox reactions
displacement reactions, rusting
8 of 15
What is a displacement reaction?
When a more reactive element reacts to take the place of a less reactive element in a compound
9 of 15
In a metal displacement reaction a more reactive metal...
loses electrons
10 of 15
What happens when an ore is reduced?
oxygen is removed from it
11 of 15
Which metals can be extracted by reduction using carbon?
metals that are less reactive than carbon
12 of 15
What is bioleaching?
the use of bacteria to separate metals from their ores.
13 of 15
What happens during bioleaching?
bacteria gets energy from the bonds between the atoms, separating out the metal, the leachate contains metal ions which can be extracted by electrolysis
14 of 15
What is dynamic equilibrium?
when the forward and backward reaction in a reversible reaction are happening at the same rate
