  1. Enthalpy changes of formation are often difficult to determine directly.
    (a) (i) Add arrowheads and stoichiometric coefficients to the Hess’s Law diagram.
    (ii) Use the data at the start of the question and your Hess’s Law diagram to calculate the standard enthalpy change of formation of propane.
    Include a sign and units in your answer
    (b) The values for the boiling temperatures and the standard enthalpies of combustion of a series of straight‑chain alkanes are shown in the table.
    (iii) Explain, with reference to their intermolecular forces, why the boiling temperatures of alkanes increase as the number of carbon atoms increases. A detailed description of the intermolecular forces is not required.
  2. Limewater is a solution of calcium hydroxide used in the laboratory to test for carbon dioxide.
    (a) Write the equation for the formation of the white precipitate in this test.
    Include state symbols.
    (b) The concentration of a saturated solution of calcium hydroxide can be determined by titration
    (c) The experiment was repeated using the same hydrochloric acid with a saturated solution of magnesium hydroxide.
    Explain the difference (if any) in the mean titre.
  3. (a) Silver ions have anti-microbial properties and are used in some wound dressings. Silver nitrate can be made by warming a mixture of silver metal and concentrated nitric acid.
  4. Halogenoalkanes are useful reagents in organic synthesis. Some reactions of 1-bromopropane are shown.
  5. (a) The concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide is at its highest level for 800000 years. Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) uses waste carbon dioxide from industrial processes to make green fuels, methanol, plastics or pharmaceuticals.
    One method uses the reaction between carbon dioxide and hydrogen to make methanol.
