1.22 use the state symbols (s), (l), (g) and (aq) in chemical equations to represent solids, liquids, gases and aqueous solutions respectively

(S) solid
(L) liquid
(G) gas
(Aq) aqueous/ solid dissolved in liquid

In balanced equations these symbols go after a element or compound to show what state it is in.

  2. I know this isn't part of GCSEs, but are there state symbols for Ionized Plasma, Quark-Gluon Plasma, Bose-Einstein Condensate and the Fermionic Condensate?
