Calorimetry - Burning Fuels
amesbee

Calorimetry - Burning Fuels

(0)
Worksheet to go alongside calorimetry experiment comparing energy per gram of fuel for different length hydrocarbons. Work is scaffolded for students to discuss control variables and hard to control variables, which acts as good practice for controlled assessments. Following completion of a calorimetry practical students calculate energy transferred and energy per gram using the key equations plus rearrangement of equations. Students are extended through link to exothermic energy profiles. Designed for students entered into higher exam for OCR Gateway Additional Science B / OCR Gateway Chemistry B, and is graded according to specification.
Crude Oil and Alkanes Worksheet
amesbee

Crude Oil and Alkanes Worksheet

(0)
Worksheet for low ability students studying AQA GCSE Chemistry (teaching from 2016) covering key information on crude oil, hydrocarbons and alkanes. Scaffolded worksheet introduces new key words, with fill the gaps and short answer questions - this works well as a good summary activity following discussion about what students already know about crude oil and the introduction of key ideas. This activity also requires a molecular modelling kit to help students to visualise the alkane molecules (methane, ethane, propane and butane) and begin to recognise patterns in their names and formulae.
