    Division of Marking in Elective Subjects

    do you know how they scale electives? because wouldn't the process be slightly different, e.g is your forensic chemistry option part of the exam (in Chemistry :p) scaled against all people sitting the chem exam or just those who did forensic chem? Same question really for all subjects that...

    Focus and Directrices of rectangular hyperbolae

    well x^2 - y^2 = a^2 is x= +/- a/rt2 where a^2/2 = c^2 so for the xy = c^2 its just that rotated 45, therefore x + y = +/- a

    Silly But confusing Q - haber process

    there's no singular answer because each haber vessel is unique. the idea you must understand is that heats are lowered (relatively - industrially these temps are "low") to a stage where forward equilibrium/yield is favoured WITHOUT making the reaction go too slow because of a lack of heat...
