Flashcards in Practical Skills Assessed In Practical Endorsement Deck (4)
What are the Practical skills?
(Along with the experimental work, these skills are covered in practical skills questions throughout the book)
- Design and use practical techniques to investigate and solve problems
- Use a wide range of experimental and practical apparatus, equipment and materials, including chemicals and solutions
- Carry out practical procedures skillfully and safely, recording and presenting results in a scientific way
- Research using online and offline tools
Use of apparatus and techniques
To meet requirements for the practical endorsement, you will be assessed in at least 12 practical experiments to enable you to experience a wide range of apparatus and techniques. These practical experiments are incorporated throughout the book in practical application boxes.
This will help to give you the necessary skills to be a competent and effective practical chemist.
Practical Activity Group (PAG) Overview
PAG 1 - Moles determination (EL [b] [i]) = EL,DF
PAG 2 - Acid-base titration (EL [c] [i])= EL OZ
PAG 3 - Enthalpy determination (DF [f], O [b]) = DF, O
PAG 4 - Qualitative analysis of ions (EL [s], ES [k], CI [j] = EL, ES, CI
PAG 5 - Synthesis of an organic liquid (WM [f]) = WM
PAG 6 - Synthesis of an organic solid (WM [e]) = WM
PAG 7 - Qualitative analysis of organic functional groups (DF [c], WM [c], WM [d], PL [j], PL [n], CD [f] = DF, WM, PL, CD
PAG 8 - Electrochemical cells (DM [d]) = DM
PAG 9 - Rates of Reaction - continuous monitoring method (CI [c], DM [n]) = CI, DM
PAG 10 - Rates of Reaction - initial rates method (CI [c]) = CI
