(B) Physisorption may transform into chemisorption at high temperature

(C) Physisorption increases with increasing temperature but chemisorption decreases with

increasing temperature

(D) Chemisorption is more exothermic than physisorption, however it is very slow due to higher energy of activation

For physical adsorption $\rightarrow$ favourable conditions is decrease in temp.

for chemical adsorption $\rightarrow$ chemical bond

Occurs $\rightarrow$ PE $\downarrow$ with bonding and increase in temp..

Q. Methylene blue, from its aqueous solution, is adsorbed on activated charcoal at $25^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$. For this process, the correct statement is

(A) The adsorption requires activation at $25^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$

(B) The adsorption is accompanied by a decrease in enthalpy

(C) The adsorption increases with increase of temperature

(D) The adsorption is irreversible

JEE Adv. 2013

Sol. (B)

Explanation for physical adsorption

• Activation energy is very low

• Physical adsorption is an exothermic process

• Physical adsorption decreases with increase in temperature

• Physical adsorption is reversible

Q. The qualitative sketches I , II and III given below show the variation of surface tension with molar concentration of three different aqueous solutions of KCl, $\mathrm{CH}_{3} \mathrm{OH}$ and $\mathrm{CH}_{3}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{11} \mathrm{OSO}_{3}^{-} \mathrm{Na}^{+}$ at room temperature. The correct assignment of the sketches is –

JEE Adv. 2016

Sol. (D)

Water has large surface tension due to very strong interaction. Generally adding organic

derivatives to water decreases its surface tension due to hydrophobic interaction.

In case III, hydrophobic interaction is stronger than case I causing surface tension to decrease more rapidly.

Q. The correct statement(s) about surface properties is (are)

(A) Cloud is an emulsion type of colloid in which liquid is dispersed phase and gas is dispersion


(B) Adsorption is accompanied by decrease in enthalpy and decrease in entropy of the system.

(C) Brownian motion of colloidal particles does not depend on the size of the particles but

depends on viscosity of the solution.

(D) The critical temperatures of ethane and nitrogen and 563 K and 126 K, respectively. The adsorption of ethane will be more than that of nitrogen on same amount of activated charcoal at a given temperature.

JEE Adv. 2017

Sol. (B,D)

(A) Emulsion is liquid in liquid type colloid.

(B) For adsorption, $\Delta \mathrm{H}<0 \& \Delta \mathrm{S}<0$

(C) Smaller the size and less viscous the dispersion medium, more will be the brownian motion.

(D) Higher the $\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{C}}$ , greater will be the extent of adsorption.
