    Thoughts... HL Noah Thomas

    I thought it was easy! :) I finished it fairly quickly, and other people were saying that as well....

    What did you think?

    The separation experiment was distillation right? :)

      Well I'm never really good at Science even though my teacher says I am, I found it hard. Probably because I have NO INTEREST in it whatsoever adds up to my difficulty of the subject. Anyway, I still fairly confident I got a pass - so at least I don't feel like I failed.

      Biology - Grand

      Chemistry - SOOOOO annoyingly hard (for me....)

      Physics - Meh...

      For the sepeation I did the ion exchanger is the right?

      I did Distillation... I don't know.

      Yeah did ion exchanger too!

      i dont think so its meant to be distillation.. ion exchange is to make water soft and take away the hard ions and replace them with soft ions such as sodium

      But the question was about hard water

      Was it not evaporation

      It was distillation. I asked my teacher after the exam

      i did seperation by using filtration paper and funnel is that wrong ???? anyone ?or will i get any marks

    13. avatar image

      heyooo

      Oisink- it said to obtain pure water which can really only be done by distillation. My teacher said this year was the first they asked that. I found it easy to medium, biology was a tiny bit harder and chemistry was pretty easy

      I said condensation with the liebig condenser?!?!?!!?!?

      Sarah2014

      will I still get marks I messed it up with distilation

    16. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      How is that Condensation Sarah?

      Sarah2014

      I mixed it up

      SryanBruen

      Oh wait I see your point never mind

      Oisink

      will i get any marks??^^

      barcelona

      it was distillation a stupid question and mistakes made by many students!! but i think marks will be awarded anyways

      That experiment threw me off I did the wrong separation technique 🙃🙃

    22. avatar image

      heyooo

      Oisink- it specifically asked for a /pure/ sample of water. Perhaps you may earn some marks but in my experience, my teacher never gave me any marks for the wrong experiment.

      And also, one of the third years in my school had a teacher that advised them not to study the distillation experiment. Therefore that whole year got the experiment wrong, thank satan I looked over it.

      Which end of the battery does the LED meet to light up?

      Yeah I said condensation as well instead of distillation... I did the the Liebig Condenser and everything but I don't know how many marks I'll get

      I did write the distillation experiment but I just put a line through the diagram and I wrote the evaporation experiment at the back where it says extra work. Will I get full marks for the distillation experiment I wrote it all out with diagram and put a line through it. It's still visible, I'm just wondering

      Ye probably

      KxngOfDeezNuts

      Ah okay then I'm good. I found the Chemistry and Physics very easy but the Biology was a bit hard, which I wasn't surprised because I don't like biology and all the plant shit. I prefer physics out of them all which is where I'm strongest.

      What I found weird was that no formulae were asked. Like the photosynthesis or HCl and NaOH. That made it easier in that sense for me :)

      what was the substance used to neutralise the lemon

    31. avatar image

      sophie544

      Water

    32. avatar image

      Elisha447

      Could you have said a base neutralises lemon?? I thought an acid an base cancel each other out no? :)

    33. avatar image

      ug_roland2504

      Water is wrong. You can say a mild base like baking soda as lemon is a mild acid

    34. avatar image

      SryanBruen

      Yeah I said Water also, I knew I was wrong. Ug_roland2504 is correct.

      Cantstudyformylife

      Guys distillation is the same as the liebig condenser.. I'm nearly sure anyway

    36. avatar image

      Poplop123

      U can use baking powder or sodium hydroxide..etc to neutralise the lemon
