In the figure shown the pressure of the gas in state B is:
A hot black body emits the energy at the rate of 16 J m^{–2} s^{–1} and its most intense radiation corresponds to 20,000 Å. When the temperature of this body is further increased and its most intense radiation corresponds to 10,000 Å, then the energy radiated in Jm^{–2} s^{–1} will be :
Two identical rectangular rods of metal are welded end to end in series between temperature 0°C and 100°C and 10 J of heat is conducted (in steady state process) through the rod in 2.00 min. If 5 such rods are taken and joined as shown in figure maintaining the same temperature difference between A and B, then the time in which 20 J heat will flow through the rods is :

Statement 1 : It is possible for both the pressure and volume of a monoatomic ideal gas of a given amount to change simultaneously without causing the internal energy of the gas to change.
Statement2: The internal energy of an ideal gas of a given amount remains constant if temperature does not change. It is possible to have a process in which pressure and volume are changed such that temperature remains constant.
An isothermal process is an example to show the possibility "for both the pressure and volume of a monoatomic ideal gas to change simultaneously without causing the internal energy of the gas to change".
Hence Statement1 is True, Statement2 is True; Statement2 is a correct explanation for Statement1.
Statement1 : Molar heat capacity of an ideal monoatomic gas at constant volume is a constant at all temperatures.
Statement2 : As the temperature of an monoatomic ideal gas is increased, number of degrees of freedom of gas molecules remains constant.
For monoatomic gas the degrees of freedom are only translational and hence do not depend on temperature. Therefore molar heat capacity of an ideal monoatomic gas at constant volume is a constant at all temperatures.
Statement1 : Burns sustained from steam at 100ºC are usually more serious than those sustained by boiling water (at 100ºC)
Statement2 : To convert 1gm of water at 100ºC to 1 gm of steam at 100ºC, 540 calories of heat is to be supplied. Hence 1gm of steam at 100ºC has more heat content than 1 gm of water at 100ºC
Heat energy stored in 1 g of steam at 100°C is more in comparison to 1 g of water at 100°C. Hence burns caused by steam are more severe.
Statement1 : If the absolute temperature of a gas is doubled, the final rmsvelocity of the gas particles becomes √2 times the initial value.
Statement2: The average translational kinetic energy of molecules in a gas is equal to both and 3/2KT.( where vrms, k and T have usual meanings)
if the absolute temperature T doubles, v_{rms} must increase by √2 (m and k are constants).

Q. If C is defined as the average molar specific heat for the process then C/R has value
A sample of gas goes from state A to state B in four different manners, as shown by the graphs. Let W be the work done by the gas and DU be change in internal energy along the path AB. Correctly match the graphs with the statements provided.
Column I
Column II
(p) W is positive (q) ΔU is negative (r) W is negative (s) ΔU is positive (t) heat rejected ΔQ < 0
In (A), V is on vertical axis.
As negative work in partII is greater than positive work in partI, net work during the process is negative.
Using PV = nRT and as V_{remains} same for initial and final points of the process, it is obvious that final temp.is greater than initial temperature as pressure has increased. Therefore dU is positive. Hence option (S) is
connected with (A).
Similar arguments can be applied to other graphs.

leave from C.
(B) At steady state heat accumulatron = )
maximum at B and minimum at C
(D) At steady state heat accumulation = 0
So =0 for any section.
Which of the following orders is correct for the size ?
(1) Mg^{2+} < Na^{+} < F^{–} < Al (2) Al^{3+} < Mg^{2+} < Li^{+} < K^{+} (3) Fe^{4+} < Fe^{3+} < Fe^{2+} < Fe (4) Mg > Al > Si > P
(1) Mg^{2+}, Na^{+ }and F^{– }are isoelectronic and thus follows the order _{12}Mg^{2+} < _{11}Na^{+} < _{9}F^{–} .
Al belongs to third period and has no charge so it is largest.
Na^{+} = 102 pm; Mg^{2+} = 72 pm ; Al = 143 pm, F^{– }= 133 pm.
(2) K^{+} has more number of shells than Mg^{2+ }and AI^{3+} . AI^{3+} and Mg^{2+} are isoelectronic but AI^{3+} has higher nuclear
charge so AI^{3+} < Mg^{2+}. Mg^{2+} and Li^{+} has diagonal relationship. But due to +2 charge in Mg^{2+}, the Mg^{2+} is smaller
than Li^{+}. Hence Al^{3+} is the smallest one. K^{+ }= 1.38 Å, Li^{2+} = 0.76 Å, Mg^{2+} = 0.72 Å and Al^{3+} = 0.535 Å.
(3) As the number of electrons are lost, the attraction between valence shell electrons and nucleus increases. As a
consequence of this the electrons are pulled closer to the nucleus leading to the contraction in size of ions.
(4) Across the period the nuclear charge increases and thus the size of atoms decreases. Mg = 160 pm;
Al = 143 pm; Si = 118 ; P = 110 pm.
Which reactions involves a change in the electron–pair geometry for the under lined atoms ?
Anhydrous AlCl_{3} is covalent. From the data given below
Lattice Energy = 5137 KJ/mol.
ΔH hydration for Al^{3+} = – 4665 KJ/mol
ΔH hydration for Cl^{–} = – 381 KJ/mol
Identify the correct statement.
Hence AlCl_{3} will dissolve and solution consists of hydrated Al^{3+} and Cl^{–} ions. In other words higher hydration
energy compensates the higher ionisation energy. As a result, it will exist as hydrated Al^{3+} and hydrated Cl^{–} in aqueous solution.

one N, two H and a lone pair. The two halves of the molecules are rotated 95º about N–N bond and occupy a gauche (noneclipsed) conformation. The bond length is 1.45 Å.
(B) Has partial double bond character due to pπdπ delocalisation.
(C) OF_{2}=103º (approximate) and OCl_{2} = 112º (approximate).
(D) Exist in polymeric structure as
In which of the following arrangements, the order(s) is/are according to the property indicated against it?
(A) SbH_{3 }has highest boiling point on account of highest magnitude of vander Waal's force of attraction due to highest molecular mass. Next is of NH_{3} due to strong Hbonding.
(B) Number of unpaired electron are 5, 4, 3 & 2 respectively.
D) Bond order is directly proportional to the bond energy.
Bond order of N_{2} = 3 , N_{2}^{+} = 2.5 , N_{2}^{2–} = 2
But N_{2}^{–} has more electrons in antibonding MO's and thus N_{2}^{+} is more stable than N_{2}^{–}.

Statement1 : In general, boiling points rise with increasing molecular weights of the hydrides of 14^{th} group elements because
Statement2 : The additional mass requires higher temperature for rapid movement of the molecules and the larger number of electrons in the heavier molecules provide larger London forces.
Statement1 and Statement2 are True; Statement2 is a correct explanation for Statement1.
Statement1 : Bond order in a molecule can assume any value positive or negative, integral or fractional when number of electrons in bonding molecular orbitals is greater than that in antibonding orbitals.
Statement2 : Bond order depends on the number of electrons in the bonding and antibonding orbitals.
S1 : Bond order may be a positve, whole number or fractional values not negative when N_{B} > N_{A.}
Statement  1 : Solutions of alkali metals in liquid ammonia are good reducing agents.
Statement  2 : They contain free or solvated electrons.

Statement  1 : Grey tin becomes white on cooling to the temperature < 18ºC.

Valence shell electron pair repulsion theory (VSEPR) provides a method for predicting the shape of molecules, based on the electron pair electrostatic repulsion. According to VSEPR model, molecules adopt geometries in which their valence electron pairs position themselves as far from each other as possible. The VSEPR model considers double and triple bonds to have slightly greater repulsive effects than single bonds because of the repulsive effect of π electrons. However, the lone pair creates the maximum repulsive effect.
