Equilibrium is necessary for the May exams | How to pass the IB chemistry exam

I am going to stick my neck out here and say there will be a question on equilibium in the May exams for the IB, both SL and HL. It is not as certain as one on quantitative chemistry, but equilibrium is such an important topic, and, more importantly, examiners love the variety that is possible in questions in this topic.

Do you know the definitions | How to pass the IB chemistry exam

Exam questions that require you to write a definition may only be worth one mark, but there may be three or four of them spread around the three papers. In addition another question may assume you understand a concept, and that question may be worth three or four marks. For example this is a common question about acids: a. Define the terms strong acid and weak acid. [ 197 more words ]

The four things you must know when using PV=nRT | How to pass the IB chemistry exam

The four thigs you must remember when using PV=nRT
This is a simple equation, and yet many students get the wrong answer mainly because they are unclear about the units used. If you are using the data booklet value for R of 8.31 J K−1 mol−1 then you must use the correct units for the other quantities: P Pascals, and atmospheric pressure is approximately 100,000 Pa.

Why are some reactions exothermic and others endothermic? | How to pass the IB chemistry exam

Exothermic and endothermic are related to breaking and forming bonds. Breaking bonds requires energy and are therefore endothermic. Forming bonds gives out energy and are therefore exothermic. Most students understand that. Where the problem comes for some students is the belief that a reaction such as this is endothermic because bonds are breaking CaCO3 => CaO + CO2 It is endothermic, but NOT because bonds are breaking.

More stoichiometry

There are some questions which can confuse students mainly because of the use of language. Atoms, molecules, ions, and moles are important words. Make sure you know the differences now, because in the stress of an exam their difference will become too vague, and you can lose valuable marks through carelessness. In general the number of atoms or molecules or ions in 1.0 mole, or even a smaller amount is a large number, based on Avogadro’s number 6.02 x 1023 and is usually something of the order of 1021, 1022, 1023, or 1024.

Why do we use moles?

IB chemistry questions are set at different levels of understanding. Look at these questions and do them without a calculator before reading further : What is the molar mass of carbon dioxide? How many oxygen atoms are there in two moles of carbon dioxide? The heat energy for power stations comes from a variety of sources. Some of these are non-renewable, such as oil, coal, natural gas, and nuclear fuels. [ 674 more words ]

How to balance a combustion reaction

Balancing combustion equations is simple and quick when you know the technique. Consider this question: Write the balanced equation for the complete combustion of propane C3H8. When applied to a hydrocarbon the phrase “complete combustion” means the only products are carbon dioxide and water. So we start with C3H8 + O2 ==> CO2 + H2O Next we start from the carbon and realise that if there are 3 carbon atoms in the molecule of propane there must be 3 molecules of CO2. [ 302 more words ]
