Flashcards in Seperation techniques - topic 2 (pg 112-119) paper 1 Deck (44):
1

solid state of matter

particle diagram - close together regular pattern of particles
movement of particles - vibrate about fixed positions
relative energy of particles - least stored energy

2

liquid state of matter

particle diagram - close together random
movement of particles - move around each other
relative energy of particles - middle stored energy

3

gas state of matter

particle diagram - far apart random
movement of particles - fast in all directions
relative energy of particles - most stored energy

4

what is it called when state changes from solid to gas

sublimation

5

what is it called when state changes from gas to solid

desublimation

6

At its melting point a substance begins to

- melt if energy is transferred to the particles
- freeze if energy is transferred to the surroundings

7

At its boiling point a substance begins to

- boil if energy is transferred to the particles
- condense if energy is transferred to the surroundings

8

define element

a substance that contains only of with atoms with the same atomic number (the same number of protons in atoms made of only one element
-e.g. oxygen

9

define compound

a substance that contains of atoms of two or more different elements chemically joined together
-e.g. water, consists of hydrogen atoms and oxygen atoms chemically joined

10

a pure substance

contains only one element or substance
- e.g. hydrogen contains only hydrogen atoms, water contains only water atoms

11

a mixture

contains more than one element and/or compound, mixtures are impure.
mixtures are not chemically bonded.

12

Elements exist as

atoms or molecules

13

Hydrogen and Oxygen exist as

simple molecules

14

carbon exists as

giant molecules (diamond, graphite and graphene)

15

compounds exist as

- molecules e.g. water H2O
- ionic structures

16

Air is a mixture of

- elements such as nitrogen, oxygen and argon
- compounds such as water and carbon dioxide

17

if a substance is pure it will

have a sharp melting point dues to the horizontal line

18

if a substance is a mixture it would

melt over a range of temperatures

19

you can separate liquids from mixtures using

distilation

20

you use simple distillation to

separate a solvent from a solution, e.g. water from sea water

21

the condenser has two

tubes, one inside the other, cold water runs through the space in between keeping it cold

22

simple distillation works because

the solute in the solution has a higher boiling point than the solvent
when the solution is heated;
- the solvent boils
- solvent vapour passes into the condenser
- the vapour is cooled and condensed back to the liquid state
the solution becomes more concentrated

23

you use fractional distillation to separate

a liquid from a mixture of miscible liquids (liquids that mix completely with eachother)
e.g. ethanol from water

24

the fractionating column has a temperature gradient:

hottest and the bottom, coldest at the top

25

Fractional distillation works because

the liquids in the mixture have different boiling points
when the mixture is heated:
- the mixture boils
- hot vapour rises up the fractionating column
- vapour condenses when it hits the cool surface of the column and drips back
- the fraction with the lowest boiling point reaches the top of the column first
- its vapour passes into the condenser
if you carry on heating, vapours from fractions with higher boiling points pass into the condenser

26

You can use filtration to

separate an insoluble substance from a liquid or solution.

27

name two reasons for using filtration

- to purify a liquid by removing solid impurities e.g. sand from sea water
- to separate the solid you want from the liquid its mixed with e.g. to separate crystals from a solution after crystallisation

28

Filtration works because the filter paper has tiny pores. These are:

- large enough to let water molecules and dissolved substances through
- small enough to stop insoluble solid particles goingt through

29

You use crystallisation to produce

solid crystals from a solutions

30

In crystallisation:

- the solution is heated to remove enough solvent to produce a saturated solution (cannot hold more solute)
- the saturated solution is allowed to cool
- CRYSTALS form in the solution
- the crystals are separated from the liquid and dried
a hot water bath gives you more control using a Bunsen burner directly on the evaporating basin

31

Solubility is the

mass of solute that dissolves in a given volume of solvent at a given temperature

32

Crystallisation works because

- the solubility of the solute decreases as the saturated solution cools
- crystals form from the excess solute

33

Paper chromatography is used to

separate mixtures of soluble substances

34

In chromatography there are two phases:

1. a stationary phase (s substance that doesn't move)
2. a mobile phase (a substance that moves through the stationary phases - the solvent)

35

During chromatography

- each soluble substance in the mixture forms bonds with the two phases
- substances that from stronger attractive forces with the stationary phase stay near the bottom
- substances that form stronger attractive forces with the mobile phase move towards the top

36

Using a chromatograph to

- distinguish between pure and impure substances (a pure substance will produce only one spot)
- identify a substance by comparing its pattern of spots with those of a known substance
- identify substances using Rf values

37

Rf values

Rf = distance travelled by spot ÷ distance travelled by solvent (measure in millimetres)
- Rf values have no unit, they range from 0 (spot stays on baseline) to 1 (spot travels with solvent front)

38

to investigate the composition of inks you can use

simple distillation and paper chromatography

39

Waste water and ground water must be treated

to make the water potable or safe to drink

40

Potable drinking water must have

- low levels of contaminating substances
- low levels of microbes

41

Fresh water from reservoirs, lakes and rivers is likely to contain

- objects like leaves and twigs
- insoluble solids such as particles of soil
- microbes, which can cause disease
water must be treated to remove these

42

Sea water can be made potable by simple distillation

- filtered sea water is boiled
- the water vapour is cooled and condensed to form distilled water

43

Stages in water treatment

1. sedimentation - large insoluble particles sink to the bottom of the tank
2. filtration - small insoluble particles are removed by filtering through beds of sand
3. chlorination - chlorine gas in bubbled from water to kill microbes

44

simple distillation of sea water:

- uses a plentiful raw material
- produces pure water
- kills microbes in sea water
- needs a lot of energy to heat the water
