1. Fossil fuels provide both energy and raw materials such as ethylene, for the production of other substances 1) Construct word and balanced chemical equations of chemical reactions as they are encountered • Methane + oxygen  carbon dioxide + water • CH4(g) + 2O2(g)  CO2(g) + 2H2O(l) 2) Identify the industrial source of ethylene from the cracking of some of the fractions from refining of petroleum Generally, demand for petrol exceeds supply produced from fractional distillation of crude oil. Thus, oil refineries increase the proportion of the desired hydrocarbon (ie ethylene) by converting lower demand fractions. This process is called catalytic cracking. Catalytic Cracking: process where high molecular weight fractions from crude oil are broken into lower molecular weight compounds. 3) Identify that ethylene, because of the high reactivity of its double bond, is readily transformed into many suitable products The two bonds of ethylene are not identical. The second bond (pi-bond) is weaker than the first bond (sigma-bond). Thus, only a small amount of energy is needed to enter the system in order to convert a double bond into a single bond. This results in ethylene’s high reactivity. 4) Identify that ethylene serves as a monomer from which polymers are made • • • Ethylene is polymerised to polyethylene High pressures produce soft, low density polyethylene, consisting of tangled chains (with molecular masses 100,000)

5) Identify polyethylene as an addition polymer and explain the meaning of the term Addition polymerisation: a process in which many identical small molecules combine to form one large molecule, with no by-products. The small molecules are called monomers, while the large molecule is called a polymer.







In addition polymerisation, no other products are formed. 6) Outline the…...

Chemistry Acids, Bases and Salts  THE THEORY of ACIDS and ALKALIS and a few technical terms: o Acids are substances that form hydrogen ions (H+(aq)) when dissolved in water eg hydrochloric acid HCl gives H+(aq) and Cl-(aq) ions, sulphuric acid H2SO4 gives 2H+(aq) and SO42- ions and nitric acid HNO3 gives H+(aq) and NO3-(aq) ions. o Alkalis are substances that form hydroxide ions (OH-(aq)) in water eg sodium hydroxide NaOH gives Na+(aq) and OH-(aq) ions, calcium hydroxide Ca(OH)2 gives Ca2+(aq) and 2OH-(aq) ions. Note: an alkali is a base soluble in water. o In water, there are trace quantities of H+ and OH- ions BUT they are of equal concentration and so water is neutral. o In acid solutions there are more H+ ions than OH- ions. o In alkaline solution there are more OH- ions than H+ ions. o Acids dissociate to different extents in aqueous solution. Acids that dissociate to a large extent are strong electrolytes and strong acids. In contrast, acids that dissociate only to a small extent are weak acids and weak electrolytes In a similar manner, bases can be strong or weak depending on the extent to which they dissociate and produce OH– ions in solution. Most metal hydroxides are strong electrolytes and strong bases. Ammonia, NH3, is a weak electrolyte and weak base. o BASES eg oxides and hydroxides are substances that react and neutralise acids to form salts and water. Bases which are soluble in water are called alkalis. Acids Some common acids are listed...

Leads to values all higher or lower than actual value. High precision, low accuracy. Random Error → uncertainty in measurement devices. Leads to random variation in values. Always occurs and can generally not be improved. Precise measurements have low random error. Accurate measurements have low systematic error and generally low random error. Uncertainties: Graduated/Analog Device → ±1/2 of the smallest increment on the device. Digital Device → ±1 on the last digit the device records (it estimates for you.) Exact Values → No uncertainty. For all uncertainties the recorded value MUST be to the same decimal place as the uncertainty. Change your final answer's significant digits if necessary. Uncertainties should be rounded to ONE digit. Propagation of Uncertainties: Addition and Subtraction → Add uncertainties. Multiplication and Division → Calculate Relative Uncertainty by dividing...

...Chemistry Notes 2010 Core Module 1: Production of Materials Contextual Outline Humans have always exploited their natural environment for all their needs including food, clothing and shelter. As the cultural development of humans continued, they looked for a greater variety of materials to cater for their needs. The twentieth century saw an explosion in both the use of traditional materials and in the research for development of a wider range of materials to satisfy technological developments. Added to this was a reduction in availability of the traditional resources to supply the increasing world population. Chemists and chemical engineers continue to play a pivotal role in the search for new sources of traditional materials such as those from the petrochemical industry. As the fossil organic reserves dwindle, new sources of the organic chemicals presently used have to be found. In addition, chemists are continually searching for compounds to be used in the design and production of new materials to replace those that have been deemed no longer satisfactory for needs. This module increases students’ understanding of the implications of chemistry for society and the environment and the current issues, research and developments in chemistry. 1.1 Construct word and balanced formulae equations of all chemical reactions as they are encountered in this module: • Acid reactions: o acid (aq) + base (aq)  salt (aq) + water (l) o acid (aq) + active metal (s)  salt (aq) + hydrogen......

...Chemistry Design Lab Rate of evaporation kheshavan   Research question How does surface area of ethanol in contact with atmosphere affect the rate of evaporation of fixed volume of ethanol? Variables - Independent variable Surface area of ethanol in contact with atmosphere. I’m going to do this by varying radius of different test tubes, beakers and other materials which is presented in the lab. - Dependent Variable The rate of evaporation. I’m going to measure this by the change of mass of ethanol over a period of time. - Controlled Variables Wind. When executing the experiment, the wind will affect the rate of evaporation (The stronger the wind, the more evaporation) so I’m going to carry out my experiment in the fume cupboard. Temperature. I want to keep the temperature at all times the constant since the temperature affects the rate of evaporation. I ‘m going to do this, by conducting my experiment in a temperature controlled liquid incubator. Humidity. I would like to keep this a constant as well but I unable to do so.

...Chemistry note on thermodynamics A born haber cycle= a thermochemical cycle that includes all the enthalpy changes involved in the formation of an ionic compound. e.g the born haber cycle for sodium chloride if we know any five we can calculate the other: starting from the elements in their standard states. Na s -> Na g +108kjmol-1 ½ CL2-> Cl g +122kjmol-1 Na g -> Na+ + e- +496kjmol-1 Cl g + e+ -> Cl- g -349kjmol-1 Na s + ½ Cl2 -> NaCl s -411kjmol-1 When drawing the born haber cycles: * Make up a rough scale 1 line of paper to 100kjmol-1 * Plan out roughly first to avoid going off the top or bottom of the paper. The zero line representing elements in their standard state will need to be in the middle of the paper. * Remember to put in the sign of each enthalpy change and an arrow to show its direction. Possitive enthalpy changes go up, negative enthalpy changes go down. Using born haber cycle we are able to see the formation of an ionic compound from its elements is an exothermic process. This is mainly due to the large amount of energy given out when the lattice forms. 1. Elements in their standard states. This is the energy zero of the diagram 2. Add in the atomisation of sodium. This is positive, drawn uphill. 3. Add in the atomisation of chlorine. This is positive, drawn uphill. 4. Add in the ionisation of sodium, also posstive, drawn uphill. 5.

...Insert your name Course Professor’s name Date due The Chemistry and Applications of Carbon Allotropes in Industry Introduction Carbon has the ability to create many allotropes because of its valence. This means that carbon has a high rate of combining power with other different atoms when it is in the process of forming chemical compounds or molecules. The most common allotropes are Diamond and Graphite. The different allotropes of carbon tend to shows different properties and have a different application in different fields. Diamond is a common allotrope of carbon that exhibits hardness and has a high ability to disperse light. Diamond is the hardest discovered mineral and industries find it useful in cutting and drilling of other elements. It is also used to manufacture jewelry. Graphite is another common allotrope of carbon. Graphite is formed in a single layer by graphene that consists of carbon atoms and it is arranged in a single plane. Graphite is a good electric conductor. Graphite is known as the most stable form of carbon under the rating of standard conditions. This paper will describe the chemical and physical compounds and their industrial application in different fields. Discussion Allotropy refers to a property of a particular chemical element that exists in more than one different form when it is found in nature. There are different forms of carbon that exists and this paper will discuss the common allotropes and their application in different fields.......

...The chemistry of perming & rebonding Some of us have naturally curly hair but want it straightened; others have it naturally straight but want it curly. But whatever the style you like to wear, there's chemistry involved in it! The structure of hair Hair is made mostly of a protein called keratin, which is also present in nails. In hair, keratin molecules are arranged in straight bundles. These bundles are held together by disulphide bonds (-S-S-), which give strength to the hair. Disulphide bonds are made by the amino acid called cysteine. The cysteine of one keratin molecule forms a disulphide bond with the cysteine of the neighbouring keratin molecule. The more disulphide bonds there are in a strand of hair, the straighter it is. Ammonium thioglycolate: the perm salt Ammonium thioglycolate (HSCH2CO2NH4) is a compound that can break disulphide bonds. This is because it contains a thiol group (-SH). The thiol group replaces one of the sulphur atoms in the disulphide bond, like this: Keratin-S-S-keratin + 2HS-CH2CO2NH4 --> -HO2CH2CS-SCH2CO2H + 2NH3 + 2HS-keratin When the disulphide bond is broken, the keratin bundles come apart, and hair is weakened. Ammonium thioglycolate is therefore used widely in beauty parlours when customers want their hair re-styled. However, if you use too much of it, or if the reaction is left for too long, you could end up going bald. So do not, ever, try it at home! If you have watched the film Legally Blonde, you'll have seen Reese Witherspoon......
