MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS - I
Q.1. Two students performed the same experiment separately and each one of them recorded two readings of mass which are given below. Correct reading of mass is 3.0 g. On the basis of given data, mark the correct option out of the following statements.
(a) Results of both the students are neither accurate nor precise
(b) Results of student A are both precise and accurate
(c) Results of student B are neither precise nor accurate
(d) Results of student B are both precise and accurate
Average of reading of student A = 3.01 + 2.99/2 = 3.00
Average of readings of students B = 3.05 + 2.95/2 = 3.00
Correct reading = 3.0
For both the students, average value is close to the correct value. Hence, readings of both are accurate. But readings of student A are also close to each other (differ only by 0.02) and also close to the average value, hence readings of A are also precise. But readings of B are not close to each other (differ by 0.1) and hence are not precise. Thus, results of student A are both precise and accurate.
Q.2. A measured temperature on Fahrenheit scale is 200 °F. What will this reading be on Celsius scale?
°F = 9/5 (°C) + 32
°C = 5/9 (°F - 32) = 5/9 (200 -32) = 93.3

Q.32. The density of 3 molal solution of NaOH is 1.110 g mL–1. Calculate the molarity of the solution.
Ans. 3 molal solution of NaOH means that 3 mols of NaOH are dissolved in 1000 g of solvent.
∴ Mass of Solution = Mass of Solvent + Mass of Solute
= 1000 g + (3 × 40 g) = 1120 g
Volume of Solution = Mass/Density = 1120/1.110 mL = 1009.00 mL
(Since density of solution = 1.110 g mL–1)
Since 1009 mL solution contains 3 mols of NaOH
∴ Molarity = Number of moles of solute/volume of solution in litre
= 3 mol/1009.00 × 1000 = 2.97 M
Q.33. Volume of a solution changes with change in temperature, then, will the molality of the solution be affected by temperature? Give reason for your answer.

Q.34. If 4 g of NaOH dissolves in 36 g of H2O, calculate the mole fraction of each component in the solution. Also, determine the molarity of solution (specific gravity of solution is 1g mL–1).
Ans. Mole fraction of H2O
= No. of moles of H2O/Total No. of moles (H2O + NaOH)
No. of moles of H2O = 36/18 = 2 moles
No. of moles of NaOH = 4/40 = 0.1 mol
Total number of moles = 2 + 0.1 = 2.1
Mole fraction of H2O = 2/2.1 = 0.952
Mole of NaOH = 0.1/2.1 = 0.048
Mass of solution = Mass of H2O + Mass of NaOH
=36g + 4g = 40 g
Volume of solution = 40/1 = 40 mL
Q.35. The reactant which is entirely consumed in reaction is known as limiting reagent. In the reaction 2A + 4B → 3C + 4D, when 5 moles of A react with 6 moles of B, then
(i) which is the limiting reagent?
(ii) calculate the amount of C formed?
Ans. 2A + 4B → 3C + 4D
According to the above equation, 2 mols of ‘A’ require 4 mols of ‘B’ for the reaction.
(i) Hence, for 5 mols of ‘A’, the moles of ‘B’ required
= 5 mol of A × 4 mol of B/2 mol of A = 10 mol of B
But we have only 6 mols of ‘B’, hence, ‘B’ is the limiting reagent
(ii) Amount of ‘C’ formed is determined by amount of ‘B’.
Since 4 mols of ‘B’ give 3 mols of ‘C’. Hence 6 mols of ‘B’ will give
6 mol of B × 3 mol of C/4 mol of C = 4.5 mol of C

(i) volume of the new vessel
(ii) number of molecules of dioxygen
p1 = 1 atm, T1 = 273 K, V1 =?
32 g of oxygen occupies 22.4 L of volume at STP*
Hence, 1.6 g of O2 will occupy,
1.6g O2 × 22.4L/32gO2 = 1.12 L
V1 = 1.12 L
p2 = p1/2 = 1/2 =0.5 atm
V2 = ?
p1V1 = p2V2
V2 = p1 ×V1/p2 = 1 atm × 1.12 L/0.5 atm

Q.43. Calcium carbonate reacts with aqueous HCl to give CaCl2 and CO2 according to the reaction given below:
CaCO3 (s) + 2HCl (aq) → CaCl2(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l)
What mass of CaCl2 will be formed when 250 mL of 0.76 M HCl reacts with 1000 g of CaCO3? Name the limiting reagent. Calculate the number of moles of CaCl2 formed in the reaction.
Ans. Number of moles of HCl
Mass of CaCO3 = 1000 g
Number of moles of CaCO3 = 1000g/100g = 10mol
According to given equation 1 mol of CaCO3(s) requires 2 mol of HCl (aq).
Hence, for the reaction of 10 mol of CaCO3(s) number of moles of HCl required would be:
But we have only 0.19 mol HCl (aq), hence, HCl (aq) is limiting reagent. So, amount of
CaCl2 formed will depend on the amount of HCl available. Since, 2 mol HCl (aq) forms 1 mol of CaCl2, therefore, 0.19 mol of HCl (aq)would give:
Or 0.095 × molar mass of CaCl2 = 0.095 × 111 = 10.54 g
Q.44. Define the law of multiple proportions. Explain it with two examples. How does this law point to the existence of atoms?
Ans. The law of multiple proportions states that, “If two elements can combine to form more than one compound, the mass of one element that combine with a fixed mass of the other element, are in the ratio of small whole numbers.”
For example, hydrogen combines with oxygen to form two compounds, namely, water and hydrogen peroxide.
Hydrogen + Oxygen → Water
2g 16g 18g
Hydrogen + Oxygen → Hydrogen Peroxide
2g 32g 34g
Here, the masses of oxygen (i.e. 16 g and 32 g) which combine with a fixed mass of hydrogen (2g) bear a simple ratio, i.e., 16 : 32 or 1 : 2.
This law shows that there are constituents which combine in a definate proportion. These constituents are atoms.
Q.45. A box contains some identical red coloured balls, labelled as A, each weighing 2 grams. Another box contains identical blue coloured balls, labelled as B, each weighing 5 grams. Consider the combinations AB, AB2, A2B and A2B3 and show that law of multiple proportions is applicable.
Ans. According to the law of multiple proportions, when two elements combine to form two or more compounds, then the different masses of one element, which combine with a fixed mass of the other, bear a simple ratio to one another.
For the combination, AB
1g of A combines with 5/2 g of B = 2.5 g B
1g of A combines with 10/2 g of B = 5 g of B
1g of A combines with 5/4 g of B = 1.25 g of B
1g of A combines with 15/4 g of B = 3.75 g of B
Thus, it is proved that law of multiple proportions is applicable.
