This class will take you through all the maths topics you need to know for most A-Level Chemistry courses. I will be taking you through all the relevant content that you need to know and guiding you through worked examples of questions that you will encounter in your exam.
Tuesday 26th October at 7:00 PM 60 mins
An introduction to some of the fundamental skills you will need throughout your A-level Chemistry course. We will cover relative atomic masses, balancing equations, errors in measurement and equations for molar calculations. We will work on key skills including using equations and rearranging equations.
Tuesday 2nd November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
Session 2 will be building on what was learnt in the first session by applying mole, mass, and concentration equations to problems. This will include calculating masses and concentrations of unknown reagents as well as percentage yields and atom economy of reactions. The second half of the session will then focus on titration calculations.
Tuesday 9th November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
This session will look at all the methods we can use to calculate the enthalpy change of a reaction including calorimetry, average bond enthalpies and Hess’s cycles.
Tuesday 16th November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
Understanding and using the rate equation in calculations. We will cover the rate equation, how to find orders for each reactant, the rate constant, and the Arrhenius equation.
Tuesday 23rd November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
Enthalpy and entropy are two features of a reaction that are often confused. In this session we will cover what each means and how we can calculate them. For enthalpy we will focus on Born-Haber cycles, lattice enthalpy and hydration enthalpy. We will then finish the session by looking at how we can calculate entropy and free energy.
Tuesday 30th November at 7:00 PM 60 mins
The focus of the session will be calculating the equilibrium constant Kc. We will cover how to write a Kc expression, what factors effect Kc and calculating moles at equilibrium. We will then consider what we do with reactions involving gasses by looking at how to calculate Kp using partial pressures.
Tuesday 7th December at 7:00 PM 60 mins
Our final topic to look at will be acids and bases. Covering the acid dissociation constant Ka, the ionic product of water Kw, and all the calculations we need to do with them. We will once again be using mole, mass, and concentration to calculate unknown values for strong and weak acids and bases. We will also introduce the topic buffers.
