which is the strongest reducing agent?

Solution:

More negative is the value of reduction potential, higher will be the reducing property, i.e., the power to give up electrons.

Solution:

QUESTION: 3

A solution containing one mole per litre of each Cu(NO_{3})_{2}; AgNO_{3}; Hg_{2}(NO_{3})_{2}; is being electrolysed by using inert

electrodes. The values of standard electrode potentials in volts (reduction potentials) are : (1984 - 1 Mark)

With increasing voltage, the sequence of deposition of metalson the cathode will be :

Solution:

The reduction potentials (as given) of the ions are in the order :

Mg^{2+} (aq.) will not be reduced as its reduction potential is much lower than that of water (–0.83 V). Hence the sequence of deposition of the metals will be Ag, Hg, Cu.

QUESTION: 4

The electric charge for electrode deposition of one gramequivalent of a substance is : (1984 - 1 Mark)

Solution:

Charge of one mole of electrons = 96500 C ∴ 1 mole gram equivalent of substance will be deposited by one mole of electrons.

QUESTION: 5

The reaction :

½ Hg_{2}(g) + AgCl(s) → H^{+}(aq) + Cl^{–}(aq) + Ag(s) occurs in the galvanic cell

Solution:

NOTE : Oxidation is loss of electron and in a galvanic cell it occurs at anode. Reduction is gain of electron and in a galvanic cell it occurs at cathode.

Cell representation :

Anode / Anodic electrolyte || Cathodic electrolyte / Cathode

Reaction at Anode : H_{2} → 2H^{+} + 2e^{–}

Reaction at Cathode : AgCl + e^{–} → Ag + Cl^{–}

QUESTION: 6

A solution of sodium sulphate in water is electrolysed usinginert electrodes. The products at the cathode and anode arerespectively (1987 - 1 Mark)

Solution:

Water is reduced at the cathode and oxidized at the anode instead of Na+ and

QUESTION: 7

The standard oxidation potentials, Eº, for the half reactions are as (1988 - 1 Mark)

Zn = Zn^{2+} + 2e^{–}; Eº = +0.76 V

Fe = Fe^{2+} + 2e^{–}; Eº = +0.41 V

The EMF for the cell reaction :

Fe^{2+} + Zn → Zn^{2+} + Fe

Solution:

**TIPS/FORMULAE :**

(i) In a galvanic cell oxidation occurs at anode and reduction occurs at cathode.

(ii) Oxidation occurs at electrode having higher oxidation potential and it behaves as anode and other electrode acts as cathode.

(iii) E_{Cell} = E_{C} – E_{A}

(substitute reduction potential at both places).

Fe^{2+} + Zn → Zn^{2+} + Fe

∵ Zn → Zn^{++} + 2e^{-} and Fe^{2+} + 2e^{-} → Fe

∴ Zn is anode and Fe is cathode.

E_{cell} = E_{C} – E_{A} = –0.41 – (–0.76) = 0.35V.

QUESTION: 8

A dilute aqueous solution of Na_{2}SO_{4} is electrolyzed using platinum electrodes.The products at the anode and cathode

are:

Solution:

H_{2}O is more readily reduced at cathode than Na^{+}. It is also more readily oxidized at anode than . Hence, the electrode reactions are

QUESTION: 9

Solution:

We have

From the half-cell reactions, it follows that

QUESTION: 10

A gas X at 1 atm is bubbled through a solution containing amixture of 1 M Y^{–} and M Z^{–} at 25°C. If the reduction potentialof Z > Y > X, then, (1999 - 2 Marks)

Solution:

The given order of reduction potentials is Z > Y > X. A

spontaneous reaction will have the following

characteristics

Z reduced and Y oxidised

Z reduced and X oxidised

Y reduced and X oxidised

Hence, Y will oxidise X and not Z.

QUESTION: 11

For the electrochemical cell, M|M^{+} || X^{-} | X,E°M^{+}/M =0.44V and E°(X/X^{–}) = 0.33V.From this data one can deduce that (2000S)

Solution:

For M^{+} + X^{–} → M + X, = 0.44 – 0.33 = 0.11V is positive, hence reaction is spontaneous

QUESTION: 12

Saturated solution of KNO_{3} is used to make ‘salt-bridge’because (2001S)

Solution:

The salt used to make ‘salt-bridge’ must be such that the ionic mobility of cation and anion are of comparable order so that they can keep the anode and cathode half cells neutral at all times. KNO_{3} is used becasue velocities of K^{+} and ions are nearly same

QUESTION: 13

The correct order of equivalent conductance at infinitedilution of LiCl, NaCl and KCl is (2001S)

Solution:

As we go down the group 1 (i.e. from Li^{+} to K^{+}), the ionic radius increases, degree of solvation decreases and hence effective size decreases resulting in increase in ionic mobility.Hence equivalent conductance at

infinite dilution increases in the same order.

QUESTION: 14

Standard electrode potential data are useful for understanding the suitability of an oxidant in a redox titration. Some half cell reactions and their standard potentials are given below : (2002S)

Fe^{3+} (aq.) + e^{-} → Fe^{2+} (aq.) E° = 0.77 V

Cl_{2}(g) + 2e^{-} → 2Cl^{-} (aq.) E° = 1.40 V

Identify the only incorrect statement regarding the quantitative estimation of aqueous Fe(NO_{3})_{2}

Solution:

will oxidise Cl^{–} ion according to the following equation

The cell corresponding to this reaction is as follows :

Pt, Cl_{2} (1 atm) | Cl^{–} || , Mn^{2+}, H^{+} | Pt

being +ve, ΔG° will be -ve and hence the above reaction is feasible. will not only oxidise Fe^{2+} ion but also Cl^{–} ion simultaneously. So the quantitative estimation of aq Fe(NO_{3})_{2} cannot be done by this.

QUESTION: 15

In the electrolytic cell, flow of electrons is from (2003S)

Solution:

**NOTE **: In an electrolytic cell, electrons do not flow themselves. It is the migration of ions towards oppositely charged electrodes that indirectly constitutes the flow of electrons from cathode to anode through internal supply.

QUESTION: 16

The emf of the cell Zn | Zn^{2+} (0.01 M) | | Fe^{2+} (0.001 M) | Fe at 298 K is 0.2905 then the value of equilibrium constant for

the cell reaction is (2004S)

Solution:

**TIPS/FORMULAE **:

Use Nernst's equation;

Cell reaction : Zn + Fe^{2+} → Zn^{2+} + Fe

Using Nernst equation

QUESTION: 18

Electrolysis of dilute aqueous NaCl solution was carriedout by passing 10 milli ampere current. The time required toliberate 0.01 mol of H_{2} gas at the cathode is (1 Faraday =96500 C mol^{–1}) (2008S)

Solution:

Give : I = 10 milliamperes ; IF = 96500 C mol^{–1}

t = ? ; Moles of H_{2} produces = 0.01 mol

From the law of electrolysis, we have

Equivalents of H_{2} produces =

Substituting given values, we get

i.e. (b) is the correct answer

QUESTION: 19

AgNO_{3}(aq.) was added to an aqueous KCl solution gradually and the conductivity of the solution was measured.

The plot of conductance versus the volume of AgNO_{3} is (2011)

Solution:

AgNO_{3} (aq) + KCl(aq) → AgCl(s) + KNO_{3}(aq)

Conductivity of the solution is almost compensated due to formation of KNO_{3}(aq). However, after at end point, conductivity increases more rapidly due to addition of excess AgNO_{3} solution.

QUESTION: 20

Consider the following cell reaction: (2011)

potential at 25ºC is

Solution:

Here n = 4, and [H^{+}] = 10^{–pH} = 10^{–3}

Applying Nernst equation

Given :

The value of x is (JEE Adv. 2016)

Solution:

At anode : H_{2}(g) 2H^{+} (aq) + 2e^{–}

At cathode : M^{4+} (aq) + 2e^{–} M^{2+} (aq)

Net cell reaction : H_{2}(g) + M^{4+} (aq) 2H^{+} (aq) + M^{2+} (aq)

QUESTION: 22

The standard reduction potential values of three metalliccations, X, Y and Z are 0.52,– 3.03 and – 1.18 V respectively.The order of reducing power of the corresponding metals is (1998 - 2 Marks)

Solution:

**NOTE **: More negative or lower is the reduction potential , more is the reducing property. Thus the reducing power of the corresponding metal will follow the reverse order, i.e. Y > Z > X.

*Multiple options can be correct

QUESTION: 23

For the reduction of ion in an aqueous solution, E° is + 0.96V. Values of E° for some metal ions are given below

V^{2+} (aq) + 2e^{– }→ V E° = – 1.19 V

Fe^{3+} (aq) + 3e^{–} → Fe E° = – 0.04 V

Au^{3+} (aq) + 3e^{–} → Au E° = + 1.40 V

Hg^{2+} (aq) + 2e^{–} →Hg E° = + 0.86 V

The pair(s) of metals that is(are) oxidized by inaqueous solution is(are) (2009)

Solution:

The species having less reduction potential with respect to (E° = + 0.96 V) will be oxidised by . These species are V, Fe and Hg.

QUESTION: 24

In a galvanic cell, the salt bridge (JEE Adv. 2014)

Solution:

Salt bridge is introduced to keep the solutions of two electrodes separate, so that the ions in electrodes do not mix freely with each other. Salt bridge maintains the diffusion of ions from one electrode to another.
