Chemguide: Support for CIE A level Chemistry
Learning outcome 10.1(f)
This statement wants you to explain the trends in the thermal decomposition of the Group 2 carbonates and nitrates.
Before you go on, you should find and read the statement in your copy of the syllabus.
Notice that the statement is in bold type, which means that it will only be examined at the end of a two year course.
You will find everything you need on the page about the thermal decomposition of the Group 2 carbonates and nitrates.
You can ignore the bottom half of that page which talks about the energetics of the reactions. That isn't needed for the CIE syllabus.
