$3.60 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{K}$ combines with $\frac{67.1}{32.9} \times 3.60=\frac{241.56}{32.9}=7.342 \mathrm{g}$

since we have $6.4 \mathrm{g}$ of bromine, it means $B r_{2}$ is limiting reactant.

Number of moles of $B r_{2}=\frac{6.4 \mathrm{g}}{160}=0.04$ moles

$2 K+B r_{2} \longrightarrow 2 K B r$ mole of $B r_{2}$ reacts with 2 moles of Potassium to form $K B r$

0.04 mole of $B r_{2}$ will react with $2 \times 0.04$ moles of $K$ to form $K B r$

Sol. $-0.375 M$ aqueous solution means that $1000 \mathrm{mL}$ of the solution contain sodium acetate $=0.375$ mole

$\therefore \quad 500 \quad \mathrm{mL}$ of the solution should contain sodium

acetate $=\frac{0.375}{2}$ mole

Molar mass of sodium acetate $=82.0245 \mathrm{g} \mathrm{mol}^{-1}$

$\therefore\ Mass of sodium acetate acquired

$=\frac{0.375}{2}$ mole $\times 82.0245 \mathrm{g} \mathrm{mol}^{-1}=15.380 \mathrm{g}$

[NCERT]

Sol. $Z n(s)+2 H C l(a q) \longrightarrow Z n C l_{2}(a q)+H_{2}(g)$

1 mole of $Z n$ reacts with 2 moles of $H C l$ 0.3 mole of $Z n$ will react with $2 \times 0.30=0.6$ moles of $\mathrm{HCl}$

But we have only 0.52 moles of $H C l,$ therefore, $H C l$ is limiting reactant.

2 moles of $\mathrm{HCl}$ react with 1 mole of $\mathrm{Zn}$ to form 1 mole of $\mathrm{H}_{2}$.

0.52 moles of $\mathrm{HCl}$ react with $\frac{0.52}{2}$ moles of $\mathrm{Zn}$ to form $\frac{0.52}{2}=0.26$ moles of $H_{2}$

Q. If the density of methanol is $0.793 \mathrm{kg} L^{-1},$ what is its volume needed for making $2.5 L$ of its $0.25 M$ solution $?$

[NCERT]

Sol. Amount of methanol

required $m(g)=\frac{\text { Molarity } \times \mathrm{M} . \text { Mass } \times V_{i n} m L}{1000}$

$=\frac{0.25 \times 32 \times 2500}{1000}=20 g$

since, density $=\frac{\text { Mass }}{\text { Volume }}$

how many grams of $B a S O_{4}$ are formed? $\quad$

[At. Wt. of $B a=137 u, S=3 u, O=16 u]$

[NCERT]

Sol. $B a C l_{2}(a q)+N a_{2} S O_{4}(a q) \longrightarrow B a S O_{4}(s)+2 N a C l(a q)$

Number of moles of $N a_{2} \mathrm{SO}_{4}$

$=\left(\frac{500 m L}{1000 m L}\right) \times 0.25 m o l$

$=\frac{0.25}{2}=0.125 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{Na}_{2} \mathrm{SO}_{4}$

Molar mass of $B a C l_{2}=208.2 \mathrm{g}$

Number of moles of $B a C l_{2}$

$=\frac{15}{208.2}=0.072 \mathrm{mol}$ of $\mathrm{BaCl}_{2}$

0.072 moles of $B a C l_{2}$ reacts with 0.072 moles of $B a C l_{2}$ to form

0.072 mole of $B a S O_{4}$

Mass of $B a S O_{4}$ formed

$=0.072 \times 233.4=16.80 g$ of $B a S O_{4}$


Q. (i) A sample of $N a O H$ weighing 0.38 is dissolved in

water and the solution is made to $50.0 \mathrm{cm}^{3}$ in a volumetric

flask. What is the molarity of the solution $\quad$

(ii) State and explain law of multiple proportion.

[NCERT]

Sol. (i) $\quad M=\frac{W_{B}}{M_{B}} \times \frac{1000}{\text { Volume of solution in } m L}$

\[

=\frac{0.38}{40} \times \frac{1000}{50}=0.19 \mathrm{mol} L^{-1}

\]

(ii) Law of multiple proportion states whenever two elements reacts to form two or more compounds, the ratio between different weights of one of the elements which combine with fixed weight of another is always simple, e.g., Nitrogen reacts with oxygen to form $\mathrm{NO}$ and $\mathrm{NO}_{2} \cdot$ In $\mathrm{NO}, 14 \mathrm{g}$ of $N$ reacts with $16 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{O}$

In $\mathrm{NO}_{2} 14 \mathrm{g}$ of $N$ reacts with $32 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{O} .$ The ratio between weights of oxygen which combine with fixed weight of nitrogen is $16: 32,$ i.e., 1: 2

(v) $46^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ (this is the peak summer temperature in Delhi).

(vi) 150 pounds (this is the average weight of an Indian male).

[NCERT]

Sol. (i) The S.I. unit of distance is metre ( $m$ )

\[

\begin{array}{l}

{1 \text { mile }=1.60 \text { kilometre }=1.60 \times 1000 \mathrm{m}} \\

{\text { Unit factor }=\frac{1.60 \times 1000(\mathrm{m})}{1 \mathrm{mile}}=\frac{1.6 \times 10^{3}(\mathrm{m})}{1 \mathrm{mile}}}

\end{array}

\]

93 millionmiles $=\frac{93 \times 10^{6}(\text { miles }) \times 1.6 \times 10^{3}(\mathrm{m})}{1 \text { mile }}$

$\therefore=93 \times 1.6 \times 10^{9} \mathrm{m}=148.8 \times 10^{9} \mathrm{m}=1.49 \times 10^{11} \mathrm{m}$

(ii) 5 feet 2 inches $=62$ inches

{\text { Unit factor }=\frac{3.6 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{s}}{1 \mathrm{hr}}}

\end{array}

\]

$\therefore \quad$ Speed $=\frac{100 \text { miles }}{h r}$

$=\frac{100 \text { miles }}{h r} \times \frac{1.60 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{m}}{1 \mathrm{mile}} \times \frac{1 \mathrm{hr}}{3.6 \times 10^{3} \mathrm{s}}=44 \mathrm{ms}^{-1}$

(iv) $1 \dot{A}=10^{-10} \mathrm{m}$

\[

\text { Unit factor }=\frac{10^{-10} \mathrm{m}}{1(\hat{A})}

Q. The following data were obtained when dinitrogen and dioxygen react together to form different compounds :

[NCERT]

Sol. (a) Fixing the mass of dinitrogen as 28 g, masses of dioxygen combined will be 32, 64, 32 and 80 g in the given four oxides. These are in the ratio 1 : 2 : 1 : 5 which is a simple number ratio. Hence, the given data obey the law of multiple proportion.


Q. Explain ‘Avogadro’s Number’ and ‘Mole’. What is their importance ?

Avogadro’s number may be defined as the number of atoms present in one gram atom of the element or the number of molecules present in one gram molecule of the substance.

The amount of the substance containing Avogadro’s number of atoms or molecules is called a mole (or simply written as mol). Thus, a mole is a chemist’s unit of counting particles such as atoms, molecules, ions, electrons, protons etc., which represents a value of $6.022 \times 10^{23}$

A mole of hydrogen atoms means $6.022 \times 10^{23}$ atoms of hydrogen whereas a mole of hydrogen molecules means $6.022 \times 10^{23}$ molecules of hydrogen or $2 \times 6.022 \times 10^{23}$ atoms of hydrogen (because each hydrogen molecule contains 2 atoms of hydrogen).

Similarly, a mole of oxygen molecules means $6.022 \times 10^{23}$ molecules of oxygen or $2 \times 6.022 \times 10^{23}$ atoms of oxygen. A mole of sand particles means $6.022 \times 10^{23}$ sand particles. A mole of electrons means $6.022 \times 10^{23}$ electrons and so on.

Sol.


Q. Calculate number of moles in each of the following :

(i) $11 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$

(ii) $3.01 \times 10^{22}$ molecules of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$

(iii) 1.12 litre of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ at $\mathrm{S.T.P.}$

Sol. (i) Molecular mass of $C O_{2}$

\[

=(12+2 \times 16)=44

\]

$44 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}=1 \mathrm{mole}$ of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$

$11 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}=\frac{1}{44} \times 11=0.25 \mathrm{mol}$

(ii) $6.02 \times 10^{23}$ molecules of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$

$=1$ mole of $C O_{2}$

$3.01 \times 10^{22}$ molecules of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$

$=\frac{1}{6.02 \times 10^{23}} \times 3.01 \times 10^{22}=0.05 \mathrm{mol}$

(iii) 22.4 litres of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ at S.T.P.

$=1$ mole of $C O_{2}$

1.12 litres of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$ at S.T.P.

$=\frac{1}{22.4} \times 1.12=0.05 \mathrm{mol}$


Q. Butyric acid contains C, H, O elements. A 4.24 mg sample of butyric acid is completely burnt in oxygen. It gives 8.45 mg of carbon dioxide and 3.46 mg of water. What is the mass percentage of each element ? Determine the empirical and molecular formula of butyric acid if molecular mass of butyric acid is determined to be 88 u.

[NCERT]

Sol. Mass of carbon present in $8.45 \mathrm{mg}$ of $\mathrm{CO}_{2}$

$=\frac{8.45 \times 12}{44} m g=2.30 m g$

Percentage of carbon $=\frac{2.30 \times 100}{4.24}=54.24 \%$

Mass of hydrogen in $3.46 \mathrm{mg}$ of $\mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}$

$=\frac{3.46 \times 2}{18} m g=0.384 m g$

Percentage of hydrogen $=\frac{0.384 \times 100}{4.24}=9.05 \%$

Percentage of oxygen

$=100-54.24-9.05=36.71 \%$


Q. A welding fuel contains carbon and hydrogen only. Burning a small sample of it in oxygen gives 3.38 g of carbon dioxide and 0.690 g of water and no other products. 10.0 L of this welding gas at S.T.P. is found to weigh 11.6 g. Calculate :

(i) empirical formula, (ii) molar mass, and

(iii) molecular formula of welding gas.

[NCERT]

Sol. (i) Calculation of empirical formula:

Mass of carbon in 3.38 g carbon dioxide

$=\frac{12 \times 3.38}{44}=0.922 g$

Mass of hydrogen in 0.690 g of water

$=\frac{2 \times 0.690}{18}=0.077 g$

The ratio by mass of $C$ and $H$ in the sample

$=0.922: 0.077$

The mole ratio of $C$ and $H$ in the sample

$=\frac{0.922}{12}: \frac{0.077}{1}=0.077: 0.077=1: 1$

Thus empirical formula of the gas is $C H$

(ii) Calculation of molar mass:

$10.0 \mathrm{L}$ of gas at S.T.P. weighs $=11.6 \mathrm{g}$

$22.4 \mathrm{L}$ of gas at S.T.P. weighs

$=\frac{11.6 \times 22.4}{10}=25.98 g$

Thus, molar mass of gas $=25.98 \mathrm{g} \mathrm{mol}^{-1}$

(iii) Calculation of molecular formula:

$n=\frac{\text { Molecular mass }}{\text { Empirical formula mass }}=\frac{25.98}{13}=1.998 \approx 2$

Thus, molecular formula is $(C H)_{2}=C_{2} H_{2}$


Q. Naphthalene (moth balls) contains $93.71 \%$ carbon and $6.29 \%$

hydrogen. If its molar mass is $128 g \mathrm{mol}^{-1},$ calculate its molecular formula.

[NCERT]

Sol. From the data given it is clear that if we have $100.0 \mathrm{g}$ of naphthalene, there are $93.71 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{C}$ and $6.29 \mathrm{g}$ of $\mathrm{H.Number}$ of moles of $\mathrm{C}$ and H in $100.0 \mathrm{g}$ sample of naphthalene are

$93.71 g C\left(\frac{1 \mathrm{mol} C}{12.0 \mathrm{g} C}\right)=7.80 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{C}$

$6.29 g H\left(\frac{1 \mathrm{mol} H}{1.00 g H}\right)=6.29 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{H}$

Mole ratio $=\left(\frac{7.80 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{C}}{6.29 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{H}}\right)=\left(\frac{1.24 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{C}}{1.00 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{H}}\right)$

Changing the decimal fraction into whole number ratio of

$C$ and $H,$ we know $1.24 \cong \frac{5}{4}$

Therefore, the ratio of $C$ to $H$ is

Mole ratio $=\frac{5 / 4 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{C}}{1 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{H}}=\frac{5 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{C}}{4 \mathrm{mol} \mathrm{H}}$

The ratio of carbon to hydrogen atoms in naphthalene is 5: 4 giving the empirical formula, $C_{5} H_{4} .$ The ratio of molecular mass to the empirical mass gives the factor with which the empirical formula is multiplied to obtain the molecular formula.

$\frac{128 g / m o l \text { of napthalene }}{64.0 g / m o l \text { of } C_{5} H_{4}}=2.00$

Thus, molecular formula of naphthalene is given by empirical formula multiplied by $2,$ i.e. $\left(C_{5} H_{4}\right)_{2}$ or $C_{10} H_{8}$


Q. Calculate the amount of lime $C a(O H)_{2}$ required to remove the hardness of $60,000$ litres of well water containing $16.2 \mathrm{g}$ of calcium bicarbonate per hundred litres. [ Atomic masses $C a=40, \quad C=12, \quad O=16, H=1]$

Sol. (i) Calculation of the weight of calcium bicarbonate present. Wt. of calcium bicarbonate present in 100 litres of well water $=16.2 \mathrm{g}$

Wt. of calcium bicarbonate present in $60,000$ litres of

\[

\text { well water }=\frac{16.2}{100} \times 60000 g=9720 g

\]

(ii) Calculation of the quantity of lime required. The equation involved is:


Q. A solution of glucose in water is labelled as $10 \%(\mathrm{w} / \mathrm{w}) .$ The density of the solution is $1.20 g \mathrm{mL}^{-1} .$ Calculate

(i) Molality

(ii) Molarity, and

(iii) Mole fraction of each component in solution.

Sol. $10 \%$ (w/w) solution of glucose means that $10 g$ of glucose is

present in $100 g$ of solution or in $90 g$ of water.

(i) Calculation of molality

\[

\begin{array}{l}

{\text { Mass of glucose }=10 g} \\

{\text { Moles of glucose }=\frac{10}{180}=0.0556}

\end{array}

\]

(Molar mass of glucose $=180$ )

Mass of water $=90 g$

Molality $=\frac{\text { Moles of glucose }}{\text { Mass of water }} \times 1000$

\[

=\frac{0.0556}{90} \times 1000=0.618 m

\]

(ii) Calculation of molarity Moles of glucose $=0.0556$

Volume of solution

$=\frac{\text { Mass }}{\text { Density }}=\frac{100}{1.20}=83.3 \mathrm{mL}$

Molarity $=\frac{\text { Moles of glucose }}{\text { Vol. of solution }} \times 1000$

$=\frac{0.0556}{83.3} \times 1000=0.667 M$

(iii) Calculation of mole fraction of components

\[

\begin{array}{l}

{\text { Moles of glucose }=0.0556} \\

{\text { Moles of water }=\frac{90}{18}=5.0} \\

{\text { Total moles }=5.0+0.0556=5.0556}

\end{array}

\]

Mole fraction of glucose $=\frac{0.0556}{5.0556}=0.011$

Mole fraction of water $=\frac{5.0}{5.0556}=0.989$


Q. $100 \mathrm{mL}$ of $0.2 \mathrm{M} \mathrm{Al}_{2}\left(\mathrm{SO}_{4}\right)_{3}$ is mixed with $200 \mathrm{mL}$ of

$0.05 M N H_{4} O H .$ Calculate the amount of $A l(O H)_{3}$ precipitated and the molarity and normality of the resulting solution in terms of each ion.
