Q1.1. Calculate the mass percentage of benzene (C_{6}H_{6}) and carbon tetrachloride (CCl_{4}) if 22 g of benzene is dissolved in 122 g of carbon tetrachloride.
Ans:
= 22/(22+122)x x 100%
= 15.28%
= 84.72%
Alternatively,
Mass percentage of CCl_{4} = (100 − 15.28)%
= 84.72%
Q1.2: Calculate the mole fraction of benzene in solution containing 30% by mass in carbon tetrachloride.
Ans: Benzene
Let the total mass of the solution be 100 g and the mass of benzene be 30 g.
∴ Mass of carbon tetrachloride = (100 − 30)g = 70 g
Molar mass of benzene (C_{6}H_{6}) = (6 × 12 + 6 × 1) g mol^{−1} = 78 g mol^{−1}
∴ Number of moles of C_{6}H_{6} = 30 /78 mol = 0.3846 mol
Molar mass of carbon tetrachloride (CCl_{4}) = 1 × 12 + 4 × 355 = 154 g mol^{−1}
∴ Number of moles of CCl_{4} = 70/154 mol = 0.4545 mol
Thus, the mole fraction of C_{6}H_{6} is given as:
= 0.458
Q1.3: Calculate the molarity of each of the following solutions:
(a) 30 g of Co(NO_{3})_{2}. 6H_{2}O in 4.3 L of solution
(b) 30 mL of 0.5 M H_{2}SO_{4} diluted to 500 mL.
Ans: Molarity is given by:
Molarity = Moles of solute/Volume of solution in litre
(a) Molar mass of Co (NO_{3})_{2}.6H_{2}O = 59 + 2 (14 + 3 × 16) + 6 × 18 = 291 g mol^{−1}
∴ Moles of Co (NO_{3})_{2}.6H_{2}O = 30 / 291 mol = 0.103 mol
Therefore, molarity = 0.103 mol/4.3 L = 0.023 M
(b) Number of moles present in 1000 mL of 0.5 M H_{2}SO_{4} = 0.5 mol
∴ Number of moles present in 30 mL of 0.5 M H_{2}SO_{4} = 0.5 × 30/1000 mol = 0.015 mol
Therefore, molarity = 0.015/0.5 L mol = 0.03 M
Q1.4: Calculate the mass of urea (NH_{2}CONH_{2}) required in making 2.5 kg of 0.25 molal aqueous solution.
Ans: 0.25 Molal aqueous solution to urea means that
moles of urea = 0.25 mole
mass of solvent (NH2CONH2) = 60 g mol1
∴ 0.25 mole of urea = 0.25 x 60=15g
Mass of solution = 1000+15 = 1015g = 1.015 kg
1.015 kg of urea solution contains 15g of urea
∴ 2.5 kg of solution contains urea =15/1.015 x 2.5 = 37 g
Q1.5: Calculate (a) molality (b) molarity and (c) mole fraction of KI if the density of 20% (mass/mass) aqueous KI is 1.202 g mL^{1}.
Ans:
(a) Molar mass of KI = 39 + 127 = 166 g mol^{−1}
20% (mass/mass) aqueous solution of KI means 20 g of KI is present in 100 g of solution.
That is,
20 g of KI is present in (100 − 20) g of water = 80 g of water
Therefore,
Molality of the solution
= 1.506 m
= 1.51 m (approximately)
(b) It is given that the density of the solution = 1.202 g mL^{−1}
∴ Volume of 100 g solution = Mass / Density
= 83.19 mL
= 83.19 × 10^{−3} L
Therefore, molarity of the solution
= 1.45 M
(c) Moles of Kl = 20/166 = 0.12 mol
Moles of water = 80/18 = 4.44
Therefore, mole fraction of Kl
= 0.0263
Q1.6: H_{2}S, a toxic gas with rotten egg like smell, is used for the qualitative analysis. If the solubility of H_{2}S in water at STP is 0.195 m, calculate Henry’s law constant.
Ans: H_{2}SIt is given that the solubility of H_{2}S in water at STP is 0.195 m, i.e., 0.195 mol of H_{2}S is dissolved in 1000 g of water.
∴ Mole fraction of H_{2}S,
At STP, pressure (p) = 0.987 bar
According to Henry’s law:
p = K_{H}x
= 0.987 / 0.0035 Bar
= 282 bar
Q1.7: Henry’s law constant for CO_{2} in water is 1.67 × 10^{8} Pa at 298 K. Calculate the quantity of CO_{2} in 500 mL of soda water when packed under 2.5 atm CO_{2} pressure at 298 K.
Ans: It is given that: K_{H} = 1.67 × 10^{8} Pa
p_{co2} = 2.5 atm = 2.5 × 1.01325 × 10^{5} Pa
= 2.533125 × 10^{5} Pa
According to Henry’s law:
= 0.00152
We can write,
[Since, is negligible as compared to ]
In 500 mL of soda water, the volume of water = 500 mL
[Neglecting the amount of soda present]
We can write:
500 mL of water = 500 g of water
= 27.78 mol of water
Now,
Hence, quantity of CO_{2} in 500 mL of soda water = (0.042 × 44)g
= 1.848 g
Q1.8: The vapour pressure of pure liquids A and B are 450 and 700 mm Hg respectively, at 350 K. Find out the composition of the liquid mixture if total vapour pressure is 600 mm Hg. Also find the composition of the vapour phase.
Ans: It is given that:
from Rault's law, we have:
Therefore, total pressure
⇒ 600 = (450  700) x_{A} + 700
⇒  100 = 250x_{A}
⇒ x_{A} = 0.4
Therefore, x_{B }= 1  x_{A}
= 1  0.4
= 0.6
Now,
= 450 × 0.4
= 180 mm of Hg
= 700 × 0.6
= 420 mm of Hg
Now, in the vapour phase:
Mole fraction of liquid
And, mole fraction of liquid B = 1 − 0.30 = 0.70
Q1.9: Vapour pressure of pure water at 298 K is 23.8 mm Hg. 50 g of urea (NH_{2}CONH_{2}) is dissolved in 850 g of water. Calculate the vapour pressure of water for this solution and its relative lowering.
Ans: It is given that vapour pressure of water, p^{0}1 = 23.8 mm of Hg
Weight of water taken, w_{1} = 850 g
Weight of urea taken, w_{2} = 50 g
Molecular weight of water, M_{1} = 18 g mol^{−1}
Molecular weight of urea, M_{2} = 60 g mol^{−1}
Now, we have to calculate vapour pressure of water in the solution. We take vapour
pressure as p_{1}.
Now, from Raoult’s law, we have:
Hence, the vapour pressure of water in the given solution is 23.4 mm of Hg and its relative lowering is 0.0173.
Q1.10: Boiling point of water at 750 mm Hg is 99.63°C. How much sucrose is to be added to 500 g of water such that it boils at 100°C. Molal elevation constant for water is 0.52 K kg mol^{−1}.
Ans: Here, elevation of boiling point
ΔT_{b} = (100 273) − (99.63 273)
= 0.37 K
Mass of water, w_{l} = 500 g
Molar mass of sucrose (C_{12}H_{22}O_{11}), M_{2} = 11 × 12 + 22 × 1 + 11 × 16
= 342 g mol^{−1}
Molal elevation constant, K_{b} = 0.52 K kg mol^{−1}
We know that:
= 121.67 g (approximately)
Hence, 121.67 g of sucrose is to be added.
Note: There is a slight variation in this answer and the one given in the NCERT textbook.
Q1.11: Calculate the mass of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C, C_{6}H_{8}O_{6}) to be dissolved in 75 g of acetic acid to lower its melting point by 1.5°C. K_{f} = 3.9 K kg mol^{−1}.
Ans: Mass of acetic acid, w_{1} = 75 g
Molar mass of ascorbic acid (C_{6}H_{8}O_{6}), M_{2} = 6 × 12 + 8 × 1 + 6 × 16
= 176 g mol^{−1}
Lowering of melting point, ΔT_{f} = 1.5 K
We know that:
Hence, 5.08 g of ascorbic acid is needed to be dissolved.
Q1.12: Calculate the osmotic pressure in pascals exerted by a solution prepared by dissolving 1.0 g of polymer of molar mass 185,000 in 450 mL of water at 37°C.
Ans: It is given that:
Volume of water, V = 450 mL = 0.45 L
Temperature, T = (37 + 273)K = 310 K
Number of moles of the polymer, n = 1/18500 mol
We know that:
= 30.98 Pa
= 31 Pa(approximately)
