Changes in H2 Chemistry syllabus 2017 – part 1
Theories of acids and bases *New! Arrhenius theory – acid produce H+ in water, base produces OH- in water. Bronsted Lowry theory – acid produces H+, base accepts H+. Conjugate pair concept. Lewis theory – acid as electron pair acceptor, base as electron pair donor. Gases: Vm = 22.7 dm3 at stp (1 bar, 273 K), 24 dm3 rtp (1 atm, 293 K) Group 2 & 17 (no longer Roman Numerals) now under Periodicity. Group 17: Not required to describe the reactions of halide ions with sulfuric acid. Not required to describe the reaction of chlorine with cold and hot aqueous sodium hydroxide. Group 2: learn thermal stability of carbonates instead of nitrates. Equilibria: Show understanding that the position of ...

Why do we use only sulfuric acid for permanganate titrations?
Permanganate titration Qn: Why can't we use hydrochloric acid or nitric acid for manganate (VII) redox titrations? Ans: For HCl, the chloride ion will be oxidised to chlorine gas by manganate (VII) ion. HNO3 is also an oxidising agent and hence would compete with permanganate. Lastly, permanganate cannot oxidize sulfate ion and sulfuric acid is not an oxidizing agent. Therefore, sulfuric acid is the mineral acid of choice for manganate (VII) titrations. More common questions here. Home ...

3 Tips For Understanding Chemistry
Tips for Studying Chemistry Let's face it, chemistry is not the easiest subject to master. It's abstract concepts (think atoms and molecules) which you can't see with your eyes. So here i will share with you all 3 tips for studying chemistry. Tip #1: Search for Youtube videos to help you visualize spatial ideas such as atomic orbitals or shape of molecules. #2: Ask your teacher if there's any suitable analogies to help you understand the concept e.g. making Subway sandwich for understanding rate-determing step #3: Play with physical models such as those by Molymod, we happen to have a set here at Khemistry so do drop by if you want use it 🙂 All the best for your Chemistry and ...
