Chemguide: Support for CIE A level Chemistry


Section 5 Menu

Section 5. Chemical energetics

To avoid copyright problems with CIE, I can't quote the actual syllabus statements. That means that you must have a copy of this syllabus. If you haven't got one, download a copy from CIE from here. If this link doesn't work, please let me know at once from the address on the about this section page.

Most of the statements in this section of the syllabus involve material which is already covered in detail over almost 60 pages of my chemistry calculations book. For reasons that I have explained on another page, all I can do in these cases is to refer you to the book.


For AS level, you can ignore any statements in bold type in these learning outcomes.

Learning outcome 5.1(a)

Learning outcome 5.1(b) (part)

Learning outcome 5.1(c)

Learning outcome 5.2(a) (part)

Learning outcome 5.2(b)


The rest of this section will only be examined at the end of a two year course. Where a statement contains material for both AS and the final exam, concentrate on the new material in bold type, although you might want to revise the older work.

Learning outcome 5.1(b) (part)

Learning outcome 5.1(d)

Learning outcome 5.2(a) (part)

Learning outcomes 5.3(a) and 5.3(b)

Learning outcome 5.3(c)

Learning outcome 5.3(d)

Learning outcomes 5.4(a) and 5.4(b)

Learning outcomes 5.4(c) and 5.4(d)
