Atomic Mass

The mass of an atom of a chemical element expressed in atomic mass units. It is approximately equivalent to the number of protons and neutrons in the atom (the mass number) or to the average number allowing for the relative abundances of different isotope

Yield

To supply or produce something.

Molecular Formula

A chemical formula that gives the total number of atoms of each element in each molecule of a substance — compare structural formula.

Reactant

A substance that takes part in and undergoes change during a reaction.

Product

A substance that is formed when two or more chemicals react. When a chemical reaction takes place, a new substance is often created from the atoms or molecules of the original substances. There are often multiple products formed in a reaction.

Activation Energy

The amount of energy reactant particles require in order to collide successfully and form the product(s) of a reaction.

Chromatography

The separating of the components of a mixture based on their solubility.

Reversible Reaction

(of the effects of a process or condition) Capable of being reversed so that the previous state is restored.

Term 4: Revision, Required Practicals & Skills Development

In Term 4 we will continue to revise topics and prioritising those that require further improvement from the Year 11 mock examinations. There will also be a focus on Required Practical activities in each science subject, development of scientific enquiry or Working Scientifically skills and Maths in Science.

We will also work on answering exam style questions and consider the AQA command words to ensure students maximise their attainment in the summer examinations.

Triple Science students will continue to cover the triple science content for each unit including the Space Physics unit
