QUESTION: 1

The equilibrium constant of the reaction:

E° = 0.46 V at 298 K is [2007]

Solution:

or K_{c }= Antilog 15.57 = 3.7 × 10^{15} ≈ 4 × 10^{15}

QUESTION: 2

On the basis of the following E° values, the strongest oxidizing agent is : [2008]

Solution:

For the strongest oxidizing agent, the oxidizing potential should be least. Here, the oxidizing potential of Fe^{+2} is less than that of [Fe(CN)_{6}]^{4−}. Therefore, Fe^{+2} is stronger oxidizing agent than [Fe(CN)_{6}]^{4−}. Also, the stronger oxidizing agent should easily reduce itself. Here, Fe^{+3} is easily reduced than Fe^{+2}. Therefore, among all the four, Fe^{+3} is the stronger oxidizing agent.

QUESTION: 3

Kohlrausch’s law states that at : [2008]

Solution:

Kohlrausch ’s Law states that at infinite dilution, each ion migrates independently of its co-ion and contributes to the total equivalent conductance of an eletrolyte a definite share which depends only on its own nature.

From this definition we can see that option (d) is the correct answer.

QUESTION: 4

Standard free energies of formation (in kJ/mol) at 298 K are – 237.2, – 394.4 and – 8.2 for H_{2}O(l), CO_{2}(g) and pentane (g), respectively. The value E°cell for the pentane-oxygen fuel cell is : [2008]

Solution:

Writing the equation for pentane-oxygen fuel cell at respective electrodes and over all reaction, we get At Anode:

At Cathode:

Calculation of ΔG° for the above reaction

ΔG° = [5×(–394.4) + 6× (–237.2)]

– [–8.2]

= – 1972.0 – 1423.2 + 8.2 = – 3387.0 kJ

= – 3387000 Joules.

From the equation we find n = 32

Using the relation,

and substituting various values, we get

Thus option (c) is correct answer.

QUESTION: 5

Given: [2009]

Electrode potential, Eo for the reaction, will be :

Solution:

Here, n = 2 ,

QUESTION: 9

An increase in equivalent conductance of a strong electrolyte with dilution is mainly due to: [2010]

Solution:

Dilution of strong electrolytes increases ionisation, hence ionic mobility of ions which in turn increases equivalent conductance of the solution.

QUESTION: 10

Which of the following expressions correctly represents the equivalent conductance at infinite dilution of Al_{2} (SO_{4})_{3}, Given that and are the equivalent conductances at infinite dilution of the respective ions? [2010]

Solution:

Equivalent conductance of an electrolyte at infinite dilution is given by the sum of equivalent conductances of the respective ions at infinite dilution.

∴ Correct choice : (c)

QUESTION: 22

How many grams of cobalt metal will be deposited when a solution of cobalt (II) chloride is electrolyzed with a current of 10 amperes for 109 minutes (1 Faraday = 96,500 C; Atomic mass of Co = 59 u) [NEET Kar. 2013]

Solution:

Applying,

Equivalent weight of cobalt (II) = 59/2

I = 10 A

Substituting these values we get,

QUESTION: 23

Consider the half-cell reduction reaction :

The E° for the reaction and possibility of the forward reaction are, respectively [NEET Kar. 2013]

Solution:

ΔE° = E°_{red} + E°_{oxd} = – 1.81 – 1.51

= – 2.69

Since ΔE° is negative

∴ ΔG = –nFE°, ΔG will have positive value so, forward reaction is not possible.
