Mole formula
Mole = mass over Ar
1 of 46
A mole is
one mole of an element contains 6x10to the 23 atoms and has a mass in grams equal to the relative atomic mass
2 of 46
Empirical formula is
The simplist/ smallest whole number ratio of the atoms of each element in a compound
3 of 46
Molecular formula is
the actual number of atoms of each element in a compound
4 of 46
To work out Empirical formula
Element I mass/g I Ar I mol=mass/Ar I divide by smallest mole
5 of 46
Working out Molecular formula
Mr molecule over emprical formula, or Mr/EF
6 of 46
Water of crystallisation
mass of water = mass of hydrated compound - mass anhydrous coompound
7 of 46
Working out number of waters in hydrous compounds
Substance (compound, H2O mass) I mass/g I Mr I mol=mass/Mr I divide by smallest mol
8 of 46
Working out reacting masses
1. Mole = mass/Mr 2. Deduce mole from Equation 3. Mass = molxMr

Standard solution
A solution you know the exact concentration of, used for predicting strength of unknown concentrations
11 of 46
mol =
mol = mass/ Mr
12 of 46
Unit of concentration
mol dm-3
13 of 46
Working out concentration
conc = mol/ vol
14 of 46
Unit of Volume
Always in dm3, turn cm3 into dm3 by dividing by 1000
15 of 46
Mol =
mole = conc x vol
16 of 46
Workingout solution concentrations
1. mol = conc x vol 2. deduce no. moles using equation 3. conc = mol/ vol

Monoprotic acid
Acid that produces 1 H+ ion per molecule. they react 1 to 1 with NaOH. HCL, HNO3
18 of 46
Diprotic acid
Produces 2 H+ per molecule. react 1 to 2 with NaOH. H2SO4, H2C2O4 (ethanedioic acid)
19 of 46
Triprotic acid
produces 3 H+ per molecule. React 1 to 3 with NaOH. H3PO4 (phosphoric acid)
20 of 46
An equation
Na2CO3 + 2HCl --> NaCl + CO2 + H2O
21 of 46
When original solution is 250cm3
Work out mol in the titration, usually 25cm3 (normal method) then x 10.
22 of 46
When an excess of acid was used
Find out mol of unreacted acid; mol NaOH, mol to mol ratio, mol HCl then original mol - leftover = mol reacted
23 of 46
Reasons for low % yield
1. impure substance at start. 2. unexpected side reactions 3. not fully reacted 4. some lost during experiment. 5. reversible/ equilibrium reaction so never 100%
24 of 46
% yield equation
% yield = actual mass over max theoretical mass x100
25 of 46
Theoretical mass
mass predicted by a mole calculation; mole, ratio, mass

Atom economy
measures the overall use of all the atoms you purchase and use
27 of 46
Why is atom economy important
1. want to be using as many atoms as possible from those purchased. 2. waste disposal expensive, so less waste is better.
28 of 46
% atom economy equation
% atom economy = Mr of useful product / Mr total reactants x100
29 of 46
Why all gases have the same volume
Because the volume is determined by the distance between molecules, not the size of molecules.

Ideal gas equation
pV = nRT
31 of 46
Converting degrees C into Kelvin
degrees C + 273 = degrees K, degrees K - 273 = degrees C
32 of 46
T =
T = pV/nR
33 of 46
n=
n = pV/ RT
34 of 46
P =
nRT / V
35 of 46
Unit of pressure
Pascals. x1000 = kPa. x1000000 = MPa
36 of 46
Units of volume
m3 cm3 x 1000000 = m3. dm3 x 1000 = m3
37 of 46
Avogadros number = mass of 1 mol over mass of 1 atom
38 of 46
Percentage error for equipment
% error = + or - actual error / amount used x 100
39 of 46
Burette error
= + or - 0.15cm3 / mean concordant value x 100
40 of 46
Pippette error (10 cm3)
= + or - 0.04 / 10.0 x 100 = + or - 0.40%
41 of 46
Pippette error (25 cm3)
= + or - 0.06 / 25.0 x100 = + or - 0.24%
42 of 46
Balance error
= 0.02/ sample mass x 100
43 of 46
Total apparatus error
= pippette error + burette error + balance error
44 of 46
to reduce % error
1. use a balance of higher resolution 2. increase the mass.
45 of 46
% error of the difference of two values
% error = dfference of values / actual value x 100
