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:
C10.1 PROPERTIES OF METALS
Naked Science Scrapbook answers the question what is an Alloy? (6m 45s).
C10.2 REACTIVITY SERIES
Science Bank 3 (Patterns of Reactivity): you just need part 3 (from 8m 50s) covering the reactivity series of metals, displacement & the thermite reaction:
IGCSE Chemistry, a 25m lesson from ChemistryKlipz covers metal reactivity (from 6m 20s to 11m), rusting (to 13m 50s) & displacement rcts (to 18m 30s).
C10.3 EXTRACTION OF METALS
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):
