= 2.75 x 1021 atoms
Q.30. What are ionic and molecular compounds? Give examples.
Ans. Ionic compounds are those compounds which are solid and form ions in aqueous solution, have high melting and boiling points, do not conduct electricity in solid state but conduct electricity in molten state or in aqueous solution, e.g. NaCl, KCl, MgO, CaO, etc Molecular compounds may be solids, liquids or gases, do not form ions in aqueous solution, have low melting and boiling points, do not conduct electricity e.g. CH4, CCl4, NH3, PH3, etc.
Q.31. Compute the difference in masses of one mole each of aluminium atoms and one mole of its ions. (Mass of an electron is 9.1 x 10-28 g).
Which one is heavier?
Mass of 1 electron = 9.1 x 10-28 g
Mass of 3 x 6.022 x 1023 electrons
= 9.1 x 10-28 x 3 x 6.022 x 1023
Mass of 3 moles of electrons = 164.400 x 10-5 g
= 0.00164 g
Molar mass of Al3+ ions = 27 - 0.00164 g
= 26.9984 g mol-1
Difference in mass between Al and Al3+=0.00164 g
Al atom is heavier than Al3+.
Q.32. A silver ornament of mass ‘m’ gram is polished with gold equivalent to 1% of the mass of silver. Compute the ratio of the number of atoms of gold and silver in the ornament.
Ans. Mass of silver in the ornament = m gram
Mass of gold in the ornament
108 g of Ag contains 6,022 x 1023 atoms
m gram of Ag contain
197 g of Au contains 6.022 x 1023 atoms
Ratio of number of atoms of gold and silver
= Au : Ag
= 108 : 19700 = 1 : 182.41
Q.33. A sample of ethane (C2H6) gas has the same mass as 1.5 x 1020 molecules of methane (CH4). How many C2H6 molecules does the sample of gas contain?
Ans. 1 mole of CH4 = 16 g
1 mole of CH4 contains 6.022 x 1023 molecules 6.022 x 1023 molecules of CH4 has mass = 16 g
1.5 x 1020 molecules of CH4 has mass
Now, 1 mole of C2H6 = 30 g
1 mole of C2H6 = 6.022 x 1023 molecules
30 g of C2H6 contains 6.022 x 1023 moles
= 8 x 1019 molecules

Ans. (a) Law of conservation of mass
(b) Polyatomic ions (radicals)
(c) 40 x 3 + 2 x 31 + 8 x 16
= 120 + 62 + 128 = 310 u
(d) Na2CO3; (NH4)2SO4

(b) Helium (He), Neon (Ne), Argon (Ar), Krypton (Kr), Xenon (Xe) and Radon (Rn) are six inert gases.
Q.37. Write the formulae for the following and calculate the molecular mass for each one of them.
(a) Caustic potash
(b) Baking powder
(c) Lime stone
(d) Caustic soda
(f) Common salt
Ans. (a) Caustic potash is KOH, Molecular mass
= 39 + 16 + 1 = 56 u
(b) Baking powder is NaHC03, Molecular mass
= 23 + 1 + 12 + 48 - 84 u
(c) Lime stone is CaC03, Molecular mass
= 40 + 12 + 48 - 100 u
(d) Caustic soda is NaOH, Molecular mass
= 23 + 16 + 1 = 40 u
(e) Ethanol is C2H5OH, Molecular mass
= 24 + 5 + 16 + 1 = 46 u
(f) Common salt is NaCl, Molecular mass
= 23 + 35.5 = 58.5 u
Q.38. In photosynthesis, 6 molecules of carbon dioxide combine with an equal number of water molecules through a complex series of reactions to give a molecule of glucose having a molecular formula C6H12O6. How many grams of water would be required to produce 18 g of glucose? Compute the volume of water so consumed, assuming the density of water to be 1 g cm-3.
Molar mass of C6H12O6
= 6 x 12 + 12 x 1 + 6 x 16
= 72 + 12 + 96 = 180 g mol-1
180 g of C6H12O6 needs 108 g of H20
Volume of water = 10.8 cm3
