describe how an ionic bond forms
a metal and non metal react together the metal atom loses electrons to form a positively charged ion and the non metal gains these electrons making it a negatively charged ion

35 of 81
what is metallic bonding?
the strong attraction between closely packed positive metal ions and delocalised electrons
36 of 81
explain why alloys are harder than pure metals
the layers of metal atoms make it more difficult for them to slide over each other this makes them harder
37 of 81
name the three states of matter
solid , liquid , gas
38 of 81
what is the state symbol of an aqueous substance?
39 of 81
what is the name of the temperature at which a liquid becomes a gas?

40 of 81
what is nano science ?
investigating the uses and properties of nanoparticles
41 of 81
give three uses of nanoparticles
make catalysts , cosmetics, surgical masks
42 of 81
How do you calculate the relative formula mass (Mr) of a substance ?
all the relative atomic masses of all the atoms in the substance added together
43 of 81
state the value of the avogadro constant
6.02 times 10 to the power of 23
44 of 81
what is the formula that relates the number of moles of a substrate to its mass and Mr?
number of moles = mass / relative formula mass
45 of 81
what does the conservation of mass mean?
during a chemical reaction no atoms are destroyed or created this means no mass is lost or gained
46 of 81
suggest why the mass of a reaction vessel might decrease during a reaction
because one of the products is a gas
47 of 81
explain what is meant by the term limiting reactant
if one reactant is completely used up before the rest then the reaction will stop that reactant is called limiting
48 of 81

mass of product actually made / maximum theoretical mass of product then times your answer by 100
53 of 81
give three reasons why percentage yield is always less than 100%
not all reactants react to make a product , there might be side reactions, you loses some product when you separate it from the reaction mixture

more reactive
60 of 81
what is the general equation for the reaction of a metal with an acid?

will copper react with water ?
no because it not very reactive

oxidation is the loss of electrons
64 of 81
during electrolysis which electrode are the positive ions attracted to ?
the anode
65 of 81
why can ionic solids not undergo electrolysis ?
because the ions are in fixed positions and won't move
66 of 81
do ions get reduced or oxidised at the anode
67 of 81
if halide ions are present in an aqueous solution of an ionic solid will oxygen gas be released?

70 of 81
define what is meant by the term endothermic reaction
a reaction that takes in energy from the surroundings
71 of 81
write down the equation for the thermal decomposition of calcium carbonate

72 of 81
what is the activation energy of a reaction ?
minimum amount of energy required for the start of reaction
73 of 81
is a bond breaking an exothermic process?
no its endothermic
74 of 81
is bond forming an exothermic process ?
75 of 81

type of electrodes , difference in reactivity
77 of 81
what is a battery?
two or more cells together in series

explain why non rechargeable batteries eventually lose their charge
because the reactants get used up
