QUESTION: 45

Out of the following options which one can be used to produce a propagating electromagnetic wave ?

Solution:

An electric charge at rest has electric field in the region around it, but magnetic field is absent. A moving charge produces both electric and magnetic field.

Lithium has bcc structure. Its density is 530 kg m-3 and its atomic mass is 6.94 g mol-1. Calculate the edge length of a unit cell of Lithium metal. (NA = 6.02 x 1023 mol-1)

Solution:

Given, Li has a bcc structure
Density (ρ) =530 kg-m-3
atomic mass (M) = 6.94 g mol-1
Avogadro's number of atoms per unit cell in bcc (Z) = 2.

Consider the nitration of benzene using mixed conc. H2SO4 and HNO3 . If a larger amount of KHSO4 is added to the mixture the rate of nitration will be :

Solution:

IN the nitration of benzene in the presence of conc. H2SO4 and HNO3, benzene is formed.
HNO3 +H2SO4
If a large amount of KHSO4 is added to this mixture more HSO4- ion furnishes and hence the concentration of electrophile decreases, rate of electrophilic aromatic reaction slows down.

QUESTION: 90

Which of the following has longest C-O bond length ? (Free C-O bond length in CO is 1.128Å)

Solution:

The greater the negative charge on the carbonyl complex, the more easy it would be for the metal to permit its electrons to participate in the back bonding, the higher would be the M-C bond order and simultaneously there would be larger reduction in the C-O bond order. Thus, [Fe(CO)4]2- has the lowest C-O bond order means the longest bond length.
