Part C: Application

Explain why the alkali metals are the most reactive. Use diagrams to aid your explanation (3 marks)

Suggest four clues you would consider before deciding whether a change is physical or chemical (4 marks)

A friend tells you that water boiling in a kettle is an example of a physical change, but that an anti-acid bubbling in water is not a physical change. Do you agree, why? (2 marks)

A friend tells you that melting ice with a magnifying glass an example of a physical change, but that a strip of magnesium bubbling in water is not a physical change. Do you agree, why? (2 marks)
