Degree: Combined Honours in Social Sciences (Bachelors) - Durham University
I am a student studing Combined Honours in Social Sciences at Durham University, specifically Anthropology, Psychology and Politics. Having studied the IB at school, I have an interest in a wide variety of subjects, and would like to be able to help people in as many areas as possible.
I have also worked with my local Rainbows and Brownies Groups for 4 years, so I have had a lot of experience working with children.
I want the sessions to be enjoyable and relaxed, and I'm happy to go over anything you feel uncertain about.
Past exam questions tests your knowledge and understanding of the topic and your ability to answer the question, so I feel that these are an important way to check we have made progress at the end of a session. My aim is to make you feel confident enough to be able to explain what we covered to someone else.
If you have any questions, please message me or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'!
A quick way to remember this is BENDO MEX:
Breaking bonds is ENDOthermic = +ve enthalpy change
Making bonds is EXothermic = -ve enthalpy change
- 17 kJ of energy per gram
- Disaccharides = highly soluble. Polysaccharides = insoluble
- Less metabolic water produced
- Stored as STARCH in plants and GLYCOGEN in animals
- Monomer = Glucose
- SHORT TERM energy store
- 38kJ of energy per gram
- A lot of water produced on oxidation
- Monomers = Fatty Acids and Glycerol
- LONG TERM energy storesee more
An easy way to remember the difference between Oxidation and Reduction is OIL RIG:
Loss (of electrons)
Gain (of electrons)
Oxidation involves the gain of electrons (or oxygen) and reduction involves the loss of electrons (or oxygen).see more
