About me

Hey there! I am Laura and I am currently studying Chemical Engineering at University of Bath. I am really passionate about Science and I am willing to share my knowledge through tutoring you. My passion and expertise in science can be proven by my high achievements in Olympiads. I came 3rd at National Chemistry Olympiad for three years in a row and obtained 2nd and 3rd place at National Physics Olympiad. I have also finished 5 country-wide extra-curricular schools focusing on Chemistry, Physics and Math. I am sure I will be able cover anything related to Chemistry, Physics, Maths that you throw at me! I gained experience in tutoring Chemistry, Physics and Math while working on the project “Become a teacher”. I helped peers to do their homework and prepare for tests. In my tutorials, you will be in control of what we cover during the session. We will talk through problems you are having or questions you want to ask about areas you feel less confident in. I will use a range of different techniques, such as diagrams, summaries, analogies, which will help you memorise things easier. Once we looked through the theory, we will try to solve past exam questions. This will let you see the application of theory. I aim to create an environment in which any question can be asked and mistakes can be corrected. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions. I am excited to meet you and help you achieve your full potential!

A few weeks before I had a very important test, I had requested to practice specific questions on specific topics with Ms Laura. Throughout our lesson, we practised questions and targetted areas I needed improvement on. She also gives extremely valuable tips and tricks to ensure maximum marks regardless of whether or not I had answered correctly. As a result, my most recent test was so far my best in Chemistry and I've never felt more confident in this subject.

3x^3 -2x^2-147x+98=(ax-c)(bx+d)(bx-d). Find a, b, c, d if a, b, c, d are positive integers

(bx+d)(bx-d)=b^2x^2-d^2

(ax-c)(bx+d)(bx-d)=(ax-c)(b^2x^2-d^2)=ab^2x^3-ad^2x-b^2cx^2+cd^2

ab^2=3

b^2c=2

ad^2=147

-cd^2=98

From equations:

a=3/b^2

c=2/b^2

d^2=49b^2

Since a, b, c, d are positive integers, b must be 1. Then a=3, c=2, d=7

(bx+d)(bx-d)=b^2x^2-d^2

(ax-c)(bx+d)(bx-d)=(ax-c)(b^2x^2-d^2)=ab^2x^3-ad^2x-b^2cx^2+cd^2

ab^2=3

b^2c=2

ad^2=147

-cd^2=98

From equations:

a=3/b^2

c=2/b^2

d^2=49b^2

Since a, b, c, d are positive integers, b must be 1. Then a=3, c=2, d=7

An object at rest on an inclined plane starts to slide when the incline angle α=30° with the horizontal. Calculate the coefficient of static friction between the object and incline.

Forces acting along x-direction (1): mgsin(a)-F=0

Forces acting along y-direction (2): mgcos(a)-N=0

(3) F=kN

F=kmgcos(a) (from (2) and (3))

F=mgsin(a) (from (1))

k=sin(a)/cos(a)=tan(a)

k=tan(30)=0.577

Calculate pH of 0.1M NaOH

pH=14-pOH

pOH=-log([OH(-)])

NaOH-> Na(+)+OH(-)

[NaOH]=[OH(-)]=0.1M

pOH=-log(0.1)=1

pH=14-1=13

pH=14-pOH

pOH=-log([OH(-)])

NaOH-> Na(+)+OH(-)

[NaOH]=[OH(-)]=0.1M

pOH=-log(0.1)=1

pH=14-1=13
