why is the formula of sodium chloride NaCl but magnesium chloride is MgCl2?
sodium ions have a single positive charge they are Na+ and magnesium have a double positive charge: they are they are Mg2+ (chlorine have a single negative charge meaning 2 chlorine are needed for magnesium)

4 of 65
how are atoms arranged in metal?
in a giant structure, closely packed together, in layers with a regular pattern
5 of 65
why do ionic solids have high melting points?
they have giant structures with strong electrostatic forces that hold the ions together, and a lot of energy is needed to over come the forces

8 of 65
why are substances with large molecular more likely to be liquids or solids at room temperature?
the intermolecular forces are stronger for larger molecules
9 of 65
why do substances with giant giant covalent structures have very hight melting points?
every atom is joined to several other atoms, many strong covalent bonds have to be broken
10 of 65
give 2 similarities and differences between diamond and graphite?
similarities: both forms of carbon, both giant structures. differences: diamond has 4 covalent bonds and graphite only has 3. diamond is very hard and graphite is soft.
11 of 65
why can metals be made into wires?
when stretched the atoms slide into a new position without breaking apart
12 of 65
why are alloys better than pre metals?
they are harder than pure metals, they can be made and designs to have different properties.

15 of 65
what is the main difference in structures between thermosetting and thermosoftening plastics?
thermosoftening polymers have no cross-links or covalent bonds between the polymer chains, and thermosetting polymers have cross-links and covalent bonds.

what allows thermosoftening polymers to be remoulded?
the weak intermolecular forces between the chains are overcome by heating
17 of 65

atoms of the same element or atoms with the same atomic number that have different numbers of neutrons
22 of 65
what is the mass of one mole of sodium atoms?
23 of 65
why is the relative atomic mass of chlorine not a whole number?
it has isotopes and the relative atomic mass is and average value of the isotopes
24 of 65
why is it not usually possible to get 100% yield from a chemical reaction?
reactions may not go to completion, other reactions may happen during, some product may be lost when separated or collected
25 of 65
why should chemical manufacturers use reactions with high yields?
to help conserve resources, reduce waste product and/or pollution.
26 of 65
what is a reversible reaction?
a reaction that can go both forward and backwards, or both ways
27 of 65
what method can be used to analyse the colours in food?
paper chromatography
28 of 65
what is the main purpose of the gas chromatography column is gs-ms analysis
to separate the compounds
29 of 65
how is the relative molecular mass shown in a mess spectrum?
from the molecular ion peak or the peak with the largest mass
30 of 65
what two types of measurements must be made to find the average rate of a reaction?
amount of a reactant or product and time taken for the reaction to take place
31 of 65
how can we use a graph of amount of product against time to tell us the rate of reaction at a given time?
the gradient of the line at a given time gives the rate at that time
32 of 65
what do we call the minimum energy needed for particle to react?
activation energy
33 of 65
list the factors that increase the rate of reaction?
temperature, concentration of solutions, pressure of gasses, surface area of solids, using a catylist
34 of 65
why do powders react faster than larger pieces of solid?
powders have a greater surface area than large lumps of solid, and this increases the chance of collisions
35 of 65
why does a small change in temperature have a large effect on rate of reaction?
it increases the frequency of collisions and the energy of the particles
36 of 65
why do reactions in solutions go faster at a higher concentrations?
it increase the frequency of collisions
37 of 65
why does increasing the pressure increase the rate of reaction of 2 gasses?
the frequency of collisions increases because there are more molecules in the same volume
38 of 65
why can catalysts be used over and over again?
because they're not used up in the reaction
39 of 65
why do different reactions need different catalysts?
catalyst often work with only one type of reaction
40 of 65
what are the benefits of using catalysts in industrial processes?
they reduce the energy needed nd the time needed for the reaction to take place and therefore reduces costs
41 of 65
give one disadvantage of transition metal catalysts?
they may be toxic or expensive
42 of 65

43 of 65
how can you tell that burning natural gas is an exothermic reaction?
it transfers energy to the surroundings
44 of 65
what are the 2 ways of showing that a reaction is endothermic?
it either cools the surroundings or needs heat of keep the reaction going
45 of 65
why must copper sulphate be heated continuously to change is into anhydrous copper sulphate?
because is an endothermic reaction

why does adding water to anhydrous copper sulphate cause the mixture to get hot?
because it is an exothermic reaction
47 of 65
suggest one advantage and disadvantage of a re-usable hand warmer compared with a single use hand warmer?
advantages: less waste, less resourses used. disadvantages:had to be heated or needs energy so it can be used again, slower reaction, smaller temperature rise

name a metal other than zinc that can safely react with an acid to produce a salt?
any metal that is more reactive that hydrogen but less that calcium e.g lead tin iron

to use up all the acid, or to neutralise al of the acid

54 of 65
what compound is produced in every neutralisation reaction?
55 of 65
zinc carbonate is insoluble in water. what would happen when sodium carbonate solution is added to zinc sulphate solution?
zinc carbonate would be produced as a precipitate and sodium sulphate would remain in the solution
56 of 65
what must be done to ionic compounds before they can be electrolysed?
they must be melted or dissolved in water
57 of 65
molten zinc chloride is electrolysed. name the substance produced at (a) the positive electrode? (b) the negative electrode?

what are the final products of the electrolysis cell?
aluminium and carbon dioxide
62 of 65
why is hydrogen produced when sodium chloride solution is electrolysed?

the three products have many important uses
