:sl:

Holidays are coming to an end and we are all expected to work hard for the new academic year. Why not?
In which case, I thought it'd be a fantastic idea to approach all the to-be GCSE students and tell them...Don't worry, work hard and remember that all success is from Allah the All Mighty so if at any point you don't achieve the grade you have worked hard for, never give up...I didn't. Allah ALWAYS has something better instore for you.

Every year at school I failed until I sat my GCSEs and proved I COULD do it. And how did I do it? I remembered Allah and did all I could do, leaving all else in His Hands. I passed!

I am in college now, well, I will be A2 after the holidays. So, if anyone needs any advise or any help with their coursework mark schemes. i AM more than WILLING to help. Just PM me if you feel you want to keep it private.

Otherwise, keep your head up high, don't waste your time and work through those books like there is no tomorrow. I can assure you, learning can be so fun once you put your heart into it, because it is then...that you pass and feel you have achieved!

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and like I said, if you have any queries - feel free to ask!

Yes, I thought I should approch the GCSE Students to-be as I know how it feels to be under pressure and as no one to help me (only child), it can get too much. But, like I said, if one leaves everything in Allah's Hands, all will be good.

Now, when I was doing my GCSEs I practised alot on GCSE Bitesize and I strongly recommend this. Look through the topics, if you don't understand read through it on Bitesize, do the exercises and go to a revision book and practise the exercises from there.

Sister dark Crystal, I hope this helps:

Geography coursework, my oh my! it's kind of easy but looooong. trust me just TRY and stick to schedule...cos im tellin u, if u dont it's going to stack up lol...i dont know what your teacher told u, but i think for every mark u get, the board doubles it....so try and pick up lots of marks by using overlays, pictures, graphs, just dont make it plain and boring...
and ask your teacher if u can have a look at the previous years work...u can get good ideas...ofcourse dont copy word for word :p it just keeps u in check....if it's on shopping, then you're all free to PM moi, i got plenty of info...:)

Double science with the AQA examination board, anyone? If so, revise from their guide it has 'all you need to know for the exam, nothing more.'

Don't confuse yourself with all these long words (equilibrium and all that stuff.) I was like 'huh?' when i read the question about dynamic equilibrium, but after reading the link provided i remembered it fell under reversible reactions. Learn the theories (for science subjects) thoroughly because they form data handling questions where you have to apply what you have learnt to given situations. If you can't handle class textbooks(don't worry, i think some people are paid to make our lives hard otherwise they would be out of a job!) then try some straight forward revision guys. The 'GCSE Sucess' series published by Letts are top.

Oh, and do exam papers as they will give you an idea as to how your exams will be. Make sure you do it in the time allocated for each paper, it will help in you managing your time and finishing your paper on time in your real exam.

Sis, what don't you understand about it?

Understand this:

equilibrium= balanced
dynamic=moving

Put it together, dynamic equilibrium (literally moving balance) is basically things moving but because they are balanced you don't see anything changing on the outset. It's called a reversible reaction in chemistry. Understood? I wish i knew where my terminal revision guide was, it had alot of examples in it.

Dynamic equilibrium is just another word for reversible reactions, because if you were to reverse one side over to the other in essence, the amount on each side will not change(remain balanced)

Salam,

Sister dark crystal to understand the concept of equilibrium, I recommend you grasp strongly the concept of reversible reactions.

So lets begin shall we, take your time to read:


Reversible Reactions

In a reversible reaction the products can react to produce the original reactants again

When writing chemical equations for reversible reactions, we do not use the usual one-way arrow. Instead, we use two arrows, each with just half an arrowhead - the top one pointing right and the bottom one pointing left ( mind my arrows).

ammonium chloride <--
--> ammonia + hydrogen chloride

The equation shows that:

(*)ammonium chloride (a white solid) can break down to form ammonia and hydrogen chloride
(*) ammonia and hydrogen chloride (colourless gases) can react to form ammonium chloride again.


Have a break and then continue!

Now, onto equilibrium... :)

First I want you to understand the two main terms:

Reactant: A reactant is a substance put together with another subtacnce to undergo a chemical reaction.

Product: A product is a substance formed in a chemical reaction.


So,

If a chemical reaction happens in a container in which one or more of the reactants or products can escape, you have an open system.

If a chemical reaction happens in a container in which none of the reactants or products can escape, you have a closed system

Reversible reactions that happen in a closed system eventually reach an equilibrium.

Chemical equilibrium

In a chemical equilibrium the concentrations of reactants and products do not change. But the forward and reverse reactions have not stopped - they are still going on, but at the same rate as each other.


Imagine.....


walking the wrong way on an escalator - at the same speed as the escalator, but in the opposite direction. Your legs would still be walking forwards, and the escalator would continue to move backwards - but the net result would be that you stay in exactly the same place. This is what happens in an equilibrium. .......I also suggest you try this as it will help you grasp the concept. Lets go shopping!! :)

Let me know if you understand this so far....

Right, so tapes don't help.

In which case, I strongly advise you:

1. go over your book from the beginning and learn the vocab inside out.

2.Understand how you have to form a sentence by remebering the past,present and future tences.

3.Then, using those words sit and write a few sentences.

Look at your exercise book and try and jog your memory of how you formed the sentences.

I know it seems alot to do but thats life. Nothing comes easy.

I absolutely love French, soooo much that I did it for my A-levels too ;D
And alhamdulillah I had a great teacher when I was in Year 7 who actually came from France. Then when I was doing my G.C.S.E's I had another excellent teacher who made french look like a piece of cake.....

So if you need any help then I'm here insha Allah... :happy:

Just tell me what you need help in eg vocabulary
or presentation
or oral questions
or anything else.......:rollseyes

And I'll try and tell you the best way to learn it insha Allah.

But History is another subject I love but it does depend on what I'm studying because i did about the two world wars and the cold war and Germany and how it fared after the war etc and it was all interesting....

It was the AQA board so if you need any help then I'm willing....

Salaam,

Okay...well as we have seen the tape thingy doesn't work...and now I'm stuck on my french homework, which is to write 2 pages about holidays!!!

Well it's not thaaat bad, but I've forgotten the structures of 2 sentences...! How do I say:

We stayed at a hotel, which had everything from snack bars, to swimming pools.
Nous sommes rest&#233;s &#224; un h&#244;tel, qui a eu tout des snack-bars, aux piscines.


And...

My aunts and uncles came and visited us, and later on we went to my cousin's (female) wedding? Wassalam
Mes tantes et oncles sont venus chez nous, et plus tard nous sommes all&#233;s au mariage de mon cousin

That's great :bravo:
This is how I wrote it: Nous sommes rest&#233;s dans un h&#244;tel. Il y a &#233;t&#233; toute une gamme de possibilit&#233;s y compris les piscines et les restaurants.


Mes tantes et oncles sont venus chez nous, et plus tard nous sommes all&#233;s au mariage de mon cousin
And this one I wrote like this: Mes tantes et mes oncles sont venus et ils ont visit&#233; nous. Plus tard nous sommes all&#233;s au mariage de ma cousine .........because she did say female cousin.

Nazia, what I'm wondering is if you have to write it word for word from the english sentence you gave us.
What my French teacher used to tell me is that try and make it easier for yourself by not giving a true account of what you actually did because its usually harder ;D . Okay you can say some things that are true for example in the sentence you gave you could have something like 'we stayed at a hotel and in the mornings we swam in the swimming pool and in the evenings we ate at the snack bars' which conveys the same thing that you told us, uses past tense AND is far easier to translate.

And the other thing is sometimes (actually most of the times) the English does not translate straight into French. So where you've written 'My aunts and uncles came and visited....' you shouldn't technically translate the 'came'.................................but I did. ;D

But if it was a sentence that your teacher gave you to translate then ignore moi :rollseyes

By the way, there is a way to learn the laws of Trig (you may know already but for the benefit of those who don't).

Sin = Opp / Hyp

Cos = Adj/Hyp

Tan = Opp/Adj

As far as I know, depending on which college you're going to, there's different deadlines and different requirements....

So for example at the college i went to I applied before the Christmas Holidays (so when I was in Year 11) and I got my interview after the new year. Depending on who applies first, they get the interview first. So basically first come first serve and if its a private college its better to apply as soon as possible. That way you have a better chance of getting in and an earlier interview means no worries during your GCSE exams.

Regarding the form that you have to fill out, its usually a different layout from other colleges but asking for similar details. But really there's nothing to worry about as long as you get it done. It's when you're applying for university that you have to start worrying...........:rollseyes

Lol.. when you go back to school, as your teacher if you could have the syllabus for your subject. and just learn that off by heart.

secondly, do lotsssssssssssss and lots of past papers. We used to revise off them in school and man do they help a lot or what! Sometimes you just get a copy of a past question and that happened in 2 of my papers! :)

formulae... just learn them and remember when you need to use them. It might help remembering them if you practise on them.

salam,

I have a test in a few days time, called the BMAT ( Biomedical Admissions Test - http://www.bmat.org.uk/index.html ).

As part of the test, I am required to know the Physics formulae at GCSE level - so I have listed all the formulae I could gather below.

Please let me know if I have missed any:


Pressure = Force / Area

Power = Voltage x Current

Voltage = Current x Resistance

Energy Transferred = Power x Time

Cost of Electricity = Units of Electricity x Price Per Unit

Force = Mass x Acceleration

Weight = Mass x Gravity (9.81 N/kg)

Speed = Distance / Time

Velocity = Displacement / Time

Acceleration = (Final Velocity - Initial Velocity) / Time

Moment = Force x Distance

Kinetic Energy = 0.5 x Mass x Velocity^2

Gravitational Potential Energy = Mass x Gravity (9.81 N/kg) x Height

Work Done = Force x Distance

Power = Work Done / Time

Frequency = 1 / (Time-Period of 1 Oscillation of Wave)

Velocity of a Wave = Frequency x Wavelength

Efficiency = (Work Done / Useful Energy Out) / Total Energy In

Charge = Current x Time

Energy Transferred = Voltage x Charge



Voltage Across Primary Coil&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#16 0;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160 ;Number of Turns on Primary Coil
________________________ &#160;&#160;&#160;= &#160;&#160; _____________________________

Voltage Across Secondary Coil&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#16 0;&#160;&#160;&#160;Number of Turns on Secondary Coil
&#160;

Kinetic Energy = 0.5 x Mass x Velocity^2

i dont understand that...why 0.5 :confused:

and if you could also explain this potential energy and gravitational potential energy...i mean whats the difference :?...and is there a different formula for potential energy?

:w:
Reply

ameen
10-23-2006, 11:50 AM
salam,

the " 0.5 x " part means: " half times.. " , or " 1/2 times.. ". I just wrote the half (1/2) as '0.5' because I thought it was convenient to do so.

I think 'Potential Energy' and 'Gravitational Potential Energy' (GPE) are both referring to the same thing at GCSE level (GPE is a type of Potential Energy), though there are apparently also other types of 'Potential Energy' (not relevant to GCSE).

Gravitational Potential Energy is the energy something gains / has stored in it, when it is 'lifted up' / due to its height above the earth's surface.

eg. if a goat of 80 kg is lifted by 5 metres above the ground by a crane, its gain in GPE would be:

80 x 9.81 (gravity) x 5 = 3924 Joules

There is no real easy way to remeber I'm afraid BUT the way I learnt was to do a lot of practice sentences.

And don't do it all together. So first learn the present tense and then when you know that, then move onto the past tenses and so on.

If you try and cram it (I'm sure you've not got a little head ;)) then you'll get them mixed up.

I'll try and email you the notes that I used, but it'll have to be in a few days time. But I know it's hard unless you have a gift, I didnt so I had to work for the grade. :)

For my GCSE's I made a revision timetable.
When I say revision timetable I mean 12 weeks beforehand so 12 weeks of study.
The timetable took me ages but it was worth it.:rollseyes

Then in the timetable (this was like loads of A3 sheets) I wrote down exactly what I was gonna do, breaking up the subjects into small topic areas.

Be realistic, you can't do a whole subject in an hour for example.:rollseyes but you could perhaps do one topic. :happy:

I go for note taking but individuals have different techniques, whichever suits you best......:happy:

Btw sis Ameeratul Layl's given excellent advice on day to day habits. I think I'll use those for my exams. :)

i think i knw how 2 do erm..but its better someone cleverer than me to help out..lol..

incase i might be wrong...

take a point on a graph in the form (x,y)
turn it into
x
y
(dunno how to do the brackets)
and simplify it

salam,

I take you are doing GCSEs.

How about...*puts on her thinking hijab*...how about the resistance of a vegetarian sasuage. You could use a ammmeter and a volt meter and WORK OUT the resistance.

so: V = IR

Therefore: R = V/I

A Physics marker for A levels did this experiement but not with a veggie sasauge. I bet they will like it!

Do something other than sasauage if you wish....

come on....challenge PHYSICS!!!!

*ahem* sorry..I get a bit carried away

SOH= sin=opp over hyp
CAH= cosin= angles over hyp
TOA=tan= opp over adj [:p]

ps..opp=opposite
hyp= hypotenuse
over = erm divide :p
All in all= SOH CAH TOA which = alot of equals:p
peace

ahaaa, your back. *:Evil: muwahaha* let us begin:

*ahem*Bismillah.... :)

Right, well basically:

*clears throat*

Get some emmm..sasauge or ANYTHING you wish to experiment with. And, just attach it all to a circuit :D this circuit should have a ammeter and a voltmeter...so when you've got the reading for volts and amps. You can do some GENIUS calculations *I will help you.inshAllah*...and hey presto...you can work out resistance. :D

NOW....the Physics examiner who was bored one day decided to use sasauge but you can use whatever you wish.Check with your teacher first!!!!

Remember you have to be ACCURATE and FAIR in your experiment.So, you must think it through-thoroughly

You don't have to use food, you could use....various wires.

An experiment to find the resistance of various wires (i.s: copper,aluminium etc).

please please ask your teacher before DECIDING on what you wish to do for your experiment!!! <<<I cannot elaborate

Jazakallah sis, really appreciate it. I wasnt too sure about the sausage thing but the experiment to find resistance between different wire materials is a raelly good one.

[QUOTE=Amatul Malik;471716]salam sis...dis is a real gud thread n i fink all de GCSE student wil benefit frm it insha'allah....i relly need help in chemistry...its the equillibrium topic...whats de difference between dynamic equllibrium and jus equillibrium??

:w:[/QUO

i know most of your answers have been answered by another sis but i thought i'll just add a bit more. When we say that tehe position of equilibrium is moving we mean that, if you have a reaction which is in equilibrium, indicated by the reverse arrow, then adding any more substance to any the side of the equation will affecet the equlibrium ( its steady state). So by adding more of the substance to the reactant side or the product side, there wil be more of it and so according to La Chataliers principle, when a reaction is in equilibrium and there is a change made to the system then the position of equilibrium will try to counteract the change. So if tere is more of the reactant, the position of equilibrium will shift to the right hand side (to the product side) and produce more of the product. Changes in a reaction system can be temperature change or pressure change.

I hope i didn't make it any more confusing for you and the best option for you is to revise with hep of ppl that hae already been throgh this study. In this way they'll be able top guide you to pich the right and neccessary stuff to revise for. But other than that what i used o do is to look at any and every chemistry book and resources and pick out what i need, and then just put it all together and see whatever explanation helps best.

In which case, I thought it'd be a fantastic idea to approach all the to-be GCSE students and tell them...Don't worry, work hard and remember that all success is from Allah the All Mighty so if at any point you don't achieve the grade you have worked hard for, never give up...I didn't. Allah ALWAYS has something better instore for you.

Every year at school I failed until I sat my GCSEs and proved I COULD do it. And how did I do it? I remembered Allah and did all I could do, leaving all else in His Hands. I passed!

I am in college now, well, I will be A2 after the holidays. So, if anyone needs any advise or any help with their coursework mark schemes. i AM more than WILLING to help. Just PM me if you feel you want to keep it private.

Otherwise, keep your head up high, don't waste your time and work through those books like there is no tomorrow. I can assure you, learning can be so fun once you put your heart into it, because it is then...that you pass and feel you have achieved!

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and like I said, if you have any queries - feel free to ask!

:w:

hello ameera..
since you said: "feel free to ask", i will ask :)

My classmate and I were planning a trip to America. We asked the college for help, but they said they can't help with it because the college has no money..
5 months ago we were on a trip to the American embassy and the secretary there gave us his e-mail and told us to contact him for any help..
I would like you to write a formal letter asking if the embassy can help us? (with money I mean). or anything else

what is the trip for? Educational purposes or to broaden your horizons?
Anyhow, when I said 'feel free to ask' it was not regarding such issues ONLY...GCSE revision and guidance.
Furthermore,if you were given the e-mail address of the secretary and YOU wish to make this trip to America...then it is up to your friend and yourself to write an e-mail to the secretary. Not moi or anyone else in that matter.
