C10 Metals (Combined Science)

Combined sci c10 syllabus from cartlidge

Metals from Carole Paquette

Here are some key terms for this topic: Key Terms C10

GCSE Bitesize has revision pages (that take you through the topic), a test and an activity – scroll down to ‘metals & their uses’. GCSE s-cool – Metals & the Reactivity Series – revision notes & animations, practise exam questions & a revision summary. For Doc Brown’s Chemistry quizzes, word-fills, crosswords and study notes go here and just scroll down. Skoool Chemistry – click on ‘3. Metals, Ores & Rocks’ for excellent lessons on Metals & the Extraction of Metals; also a glossary of key terms. Chemactive worksheets & answers just click on ‘Metals questions’. 

Two more powerpoints:

Reactivity with metals from yeshasv13

C19 metals and their reactivity from Chemrcwss


Two videos from TutorVista cover the physical properties of metals (5m) and the chemical properties (8m 15s). And this is a 1m video on malleability & ductility of metals.

Naked Science Scrapbook answers the question what is an Alloy? (6m 45s).




Science Bank 3 (Patterns of Reactivity): you just need part 3 (from 8m 50s) covering the reactivity series of metals, displacement & the thermite reaction:

Revision on the Reactivity Series from KS3 Bitesize.

IGCSE Chemistry, a 25m lesson from ChemistryKlipz covers metal reactivity (from 6m 20s to 11m), rusting (to 13m 50s) & displacement rcts (to 18m 30s).


The extraction of metals – an excellent 19m video:

Demo – heating copper oxide with carbon powder to extract copper (1m).

The Blast Furnace is covered in  Ore to Steel – HowStuffWorks: a quick 2 minute vid, The Blast Furnace a 1m53s vid from CORUS & here is an animation of a Victorian blast furnace. The RSC presents Iron & Steel – a 6m 37s vid going into more detail than you need for the exam but its worth watching.

GCSE s-cool – Extraction of Metals – revision notes & animations, practise exam questions & a revision summary

Not a bad little powerpoint (we don’t need the details on steel):
