How do catalysts speed a reaction?
they provide a different route with lover activation energy
1 of 34
Avogadro's Constant
6.02x10^23 atoms in 1mol
2 of 34
Features of a Zeolite
-large surface area -many channels
3 of 34
Heterogeneous catalysts appear where?
on the surface of the catalyst
4 of 34
the measure of number of ways particles can be arranged
5 of 34
Empirical Formula
simplest ratio of atoms
6 of 34
Why can enthalpy change be negative?
-breaking bonds is endo/takes in energy -forming bonds is exo/releases energy -exo is larger than endo value
7 of 34
Practical Limitations: Energy Transfer
-hard to use a gas fuel, might escape -incomplete combustion -heat lost to surroundings
8 of 34
Bonds between bio molecules
Glycosydic-sugar Ester-fats/lipids Pepetide-proteins Phosphodiester-DNA
9 of 34
When comparing storage molecules
-molecule makeup -structure (branched) -ease of hydrolysis? -compact? -which fits more? -solubility? -diffusion/osmotic affect?
10 of 34
Which molecules do not easily diffuse out of and have little osmotic affect in a cell?
Large and insoluble molecules
11 of 34
How does ethanol interrupt colour intensity?
-disruption of membrane -ethanol is a non polar solvent -lipids dissolve in ethanol -solution becomes less polar -the surrounding solution changes the orientation of the phospholipids
12 of 34
Statins uses
-inhibit cholesterol synthesis -increase LDL receptors on liver cells -less LDLs
13 of 34
Statins risks
-liver problems -kidney problems -mental health problems
14 of 34
How do enzymes work?
-enzyme/substrate complex forms -substrate binds to active site -bonds broken/made (example) -iduced fit -lower activation energy -product released and no longer binded to active site
15 of 34
Why isn't a wind turbine 100% efficient?
because the air is always moving and cannot always be captured
16 of 34
Friction = W = 6 x pi x r x n x v
Viscous Drag
17 of 34
Higher Viscosity and speed
18 of 34
Turbines and work
-work done? -medium exerts a force on the turbine -turbines move through a distance in the direction of the force
19 of 34
mgh = 1/2 x m x v^2
20 of 34
Resolving Vectors
Tsin x 2 = W / 2
21 of 34
When you can't assume air resistance or friction
-a physical cause (distance or movement) -energy causes (not in the object)
22 of 34
Why is terminal velocity F = W - U?
-there is no net force on the object -W = F + U
23 of 34
The straight part of a force/extension graph
shows a material is stiff and elastic
24 of 34
deforms plastically before breaking
25 of 34
How do you display viscosity values on a graph?
log scale or power of 10 scale
26 of 34
Elastic metals molecules
-bonds stretched -don't break -atoms move apart and then return
27 of 34
Plastic metals molecules
-bonds stressed -break -atoms don't move apart and don't return when broken
28 of 34
How would a tough material appear on a graph?
large area under the linear part
29 of 34
Crumple Zones
increase displacement -decrease acceleration -decrease the impact force
30 of 34
Why does the acceleration decrease during free fall?
-air resistance increases as it speeds up -net force decreases -acceleration decreases
31 of 34
Stokes Law Assumption
that there is no viscous drag and laminar flow
32 of 34
Viscous Drag
force which opposes motion through a fluid which has visosity
33 of 34
The cause of upthrust
the object displaces some of the liquid around it
