I am a chemistry student at Edinburgh University. Although I have achieved highly I have always had to put in a little more effort than most, going through material just that extra time. I am keen to be able to offer others the support that I have been so grateful for throughout my academic career.
Teaching is a passion of mine. Throughout sixth form I taught maths in local primary schools and acted as a pastoral tutor for a year 8 class. My spare time however was devoted to volunteering/working as an outdoor pursuits leader, teaching: bushcraft, cooking, canoeing, climbing, sport etc often on residential trips as well as several times a week with roughly 250 students aged 6-16.

The process of ATP synthesis is known as oxidative phosphorylation. Firstly reduced NAD/FAD is oxidised to NAD/FAD at the cristae (inner mitochondrial membrane). The hydrogen released splits into a proton and an electron. The electrons are then transported down the electron transport chain (ETC) releasing energy. The energy is used to pump protons across the inner membrane into the inter-membrane space, creating a proton gradient. The protons diffuse down their electrochemical gradient through ATP synthase channel proteins via the process of chemiosmosis. This allows ATP to be formed from ADP + Pi.see more

What is the difference between covalent and dative covalent bonds?
These two types of bonding are very similar and so can easily be confused
however this question specifically wants the difference between them. Covalent

electron being donated by each atom. In dative covalent bonding the s...These two types of bonding are very similar and so can easily be confused however this question specifically wants the difference between them.
Covalent bonding occurs when a pair of nuclei share a pair of electrons with one electron being donated by each atom. In dative covalent bonding the same principle of sharing electrons between two nuclei applies except in this case both of the electrons involved in bonding are donated by one of the atoms. i.e. one atom doesn't donate any bonding electrons but the other donates both electrons required for bonding.see more
