PROBLEM SOLVING. Read (without underestimation) the problems carefully, and solve for what is asked. There are ten problems in this part of the review.

Problem 1: Lead-Acid Battery


The lead-acid battery, invented in 1959 by French physicist Gaston Plant, is the oldest model of rechargeable batteries. Lead-acid batteries are normally used in automobile engines, because it can generate large amounts of current for short periods of time. When a lead-acid battery is fully charged, the battery contains sulfuric acid as the electrolyte. Two grids, lead grid and lead(IV) oxide grid, serve as the electrodes of the battery. During discharge, the grids are converted to lead(II) sulfate, and when the battery is fully discharged, the sulfuric acid is almost diluted to water. Assume that sulfuric acid does not fully ionize during discharge; it will only give one H+ during ionization. a) WRITE the balanced half-reactions for the anode and the cathode. INDICATE the reducing and oxidizing agents. b) WRITE the overall balanced equation for lead-acid battery discharge. c) CALCULATE the number of electrons loss/gained after full discharge if 150.0 g of solid lead, 150.0 g lead(IV) oxide, and 3.00 L of 4.2 M sulfuric acid was present at full charge. The problem with lead-acid batteries is its environmental risks. Even though lead-acid batteries are rechargeable, lead can still escape from the battery, especially during battery explosion. A battery explosion happens when water molecules hydrolyze to hydrogen and oxygen gas during recharging. d) WRITE the balanced equation for the hydrolysis of water. An explosion can spray battery acid and release harmful lead compounds in the environment. Lead mostly accumulates in bodies of water in the form of lead(II) ions. To detect concentration of lead(II) ions in bodies of water, chemists use cerimetry, a redox titration by using cerium(IV) ions as the titrant.

5|DLRC Chem 16 LE2 Samplex

50 mL of a wastewater sample near a lead-acid battery explosion site was acidified with 25 mL 6 M HCl, and was titrated with 32.6 mL of cerium(IV) sulfate solution. The cerium(IV) sulfate solution was prepared dissolving 250 g of the solid in 800 mL distilled water. e) If lead(II) and cerium(IV) becomes lead(IV) and cerium(III) during titration, WRITE the balanced equation of the redox reaction. f) CALCULATE the concentration of lead(II) ions in the wastewater sample.

Problem 2: Bomb Calorimetry


A more sophisticated calorimeter than the constant-pressure (coffee cup) calorimeter is the bomb calorimeter. The bomb calorimeter uses an insulated sealed vessel where the reaction (with the sample) takes place. The vessel is pressurized with excess oxygen gas and it is placed inside the calorimeter full of water. Electric current will run through the vessel, igniting the sample. A thermometer will then measure the temperature change by contact with the water inside the calorimeter. Bomb calorimetry is used mostly in calculating energy needed to burn food or fuel. a) The bomb calorimeter is also known as constant-volume calorimeter, because reactions are carried out at constant volume. EXPLAIN why E corresponds to the transferred heat in bomb calorimeter rather than H. The bomb calorimeter is calibrated by burning 25.0 g of solid glucose (C6H12O6) in the sealed vessel, and the temperature rose from 25.00 C to 59.50 C. The heat of reaction for the combustion of one mole of solid glucose is -2803 kJ. b) WRITE the balanced equation for the combustion of solid glucose. c) CALCULATE the heat capacity of the bomb calorimeter. A certain milk tea was found to contain fructose (C6H12O6), gallic acid and palmitic acid. Gallic acid (MW = 170.12 g/mol) is an antioxidant found in most Chinese herbs, while palmitic acid (C16H32O2) is an unsaturated fat found in dairy products. 100.0 mL of the sample (filtered, only containing the desirable compounds) was burned in the sealed vessel of the calorimeter in an initial temperature of 25.00 C. Several experiments were conducted to find the percent volumes of some of the compounds and the amount of products formed. The following data were collected before and after the tests: Final Temperature 27.24 C Density of fructose 1.694 g/mL Percent volume of fructose 0.400% Density of palmitic acid 0.853 g/mL Percent volume of palmitic acid 0.200% Density of gallic acid 1.7 g/mL Percent volume of gallic acid 0.300% Heat of combustion per mole of fructose -2812 kJ/mol Grams of carbon dioxide 2.385 g Heat of combustion per mole of gallic acid -2655 kJ/mol Grams of water 0.7604 g

d) CALCULATE the molecular formula of gallic acid. e) CALCULATE the molar heat of combustion of palmitic acid. f) WRITE the balanced equations for the combustion of palmitic acid and gallic acid. 6|DLRC Chem 16 LE2 Samplex

[Problem 3]: DLRC-Land


In the year 21XX, scientists discovered a peculiar planet outside Earth, and they named it DLRCLand. What makes DLRC-Land peculiar is that it defies the laws and theories behind the structure of atoms. Scientists noticed that the elements in Earth are different compared to the elements in DLRC Land. Paulis Exclusion Principle, Aufbaus Principle, Hunds Rule, Heisenbergs Uncertainty, et c. all apply to DLRC, except with the quantum numbers. By calculations they concluded that they have the quantum numbers d, lr, and c. d corresponds to quantum number n. lr corresponds to both quantum numbers l and ml. This means lr = 0, 1, 2, 3 (n-1). c corresponds to quantum number ms, The elements in DLRC-Land are named by their atomic number.

a) DRAW the first five periods of the DLRC-Land periodic table based on the information given above (You just need to draw blocks.) b) WRITE and DRAW the electronic configuration of DLRC-Land elements 28, 24, and 21. Give the quantum numbers of their last-entering electron. c) ARRANGE the following elements by their periodicity. Assume that like elements in Earth, DLRC-Land elements have their cationic and anionic forms. a. Atomic Radius: 7-, 162+ 62b. Ionization Energy: 2, 9, 13, 14 d) What rules in covalent bonding does DLRC-Land follow if our planets elements follow the octet rule and 18-electron rule? EXPLAIN. e) INDICATE which of the following hypothetical covalent compounds are possible to exist in DLRC-Land. If possible, DRAW their Lewis structures and indicate the electron-group geometry and moleculargroup geometry in each central atom. a. (6)(5)3 c. Hypothetical carbon chain (5)3(1)5 b.

Hypothetical anion (13)(7)4 f) GIVE the hybridized DLRC-Land orbital that corresponds to (a) tetrahedral, (b) trigonal bipyramidal, and (c) octahedral electron-group geometry.

Problem 4: Qualitative Analysis


Dessa Eibaf Conor, a Chem 16 student in UP Diliman, was asked to get 17 reagents from the IC Stock Room for the qualitative analysis experiment. However, Dessa is a mischievous student, so she removed the labels of the bottles and replaced them with labels A to Q. Air Asserc, the topnotcher of the 1st Chem 16 LE, tried to find out the compounds based on her vast knowledge of Chem 16. These are the results of her tests/observations: Dessa accidentally placed one drop of L on a tissue paper. The tissue paper acquired a burnt mark. Based on her lab manual, all fresh (soluble) anionic and cationic samples have molarity of 1.0 M. When G is added with 5 drops A, a deep red solution formed. When it was added with 5 drops M, a blue precipitate formed. When 5 drops of C was added with 5 drops D, a blue precipitate formed, but when mossy zinc was immersed before adding D, a yellow precipitate formed.

7|DLRC Chem 16 LE2 Samplex

When 5 drops of E was added with 5 drops J, a brown precipitate formed. The precipitate turned colorless when added with 1 drop of L, but turned green when added with 3 drops of K. Solid F dissolves into a blue solution when added with L. When added with excess O, the solution turned deep blue. Only B and A released a basic gas (by litmus paper test) when added with 2 drops K. G, N, and P gave a brown ring when the test for nitrate was done. When 5 drops I was added with 2 drops 0.5 M P, a white precipitate formed, and it dissolved (with effervescence) in excess Q. When H was studied for the toluene elimination test, the toluene and aqueous layers turned yellowishbrown. When 10 mL I was added with 10 mL G, 0.972 g of brown-orange precipitate formed. When 5 mL N was added with 1 mL of 6 M K, 0.37 g of white precipitate formed. When 5 mL H was added with 5 mL of 1.0 M silver nitrate, 0.939 g of precipitate formed. When 10 mL B was added with 5 mL of 0.5 M P, 1.50 g of white precipitate formed, and it dissolved in excess organic acid Q. By records in the stock room, solution I was made by dissolving 73.89 g of it in 500 mL distilled water. By records in the stock room, solution N was made by dissolving 98.45 g of it in 600 mL distilled water.

After doing the said tests and observations, Air Asserc knew the corresponding compounds from A to Q. GIVE the corresponding compounds from A to Q. (NOTE: Some of the compounds have slight modifications from the compounds in the Chem 16 manual. Qualitative analysis alone is not enough to solve the problem.)

Problem 5: Polynitrogen Chemistry


In 1999, Karl O. Christe and his team of researchers from the Air Force Research Laboratory synthesized a polynitrogen species other than N2, and azide (N3-). Pentazenium (N5+), an open chained polynitride like the other compounds, was synthesized for a less toxic and more environmental-friendly alternative to hydrazine, a gas used in rocket fuel. a) DRAW the Lewis structures (and resonance structures if possible) for azide anion. b) DRAW the three most dominant resonance structures of pentazenium. INDICATE the formal charges of each atom. GIVE the hybridization overlaps between the five nitrogen atoms for each resonance structure. Karl Christe proposed a reaction between gaseous hydroazoic acid and N2F+ gas to give pentazenium and hydrogen fluoride as the byproduct. The bond energies of the atoms are given below: H H 432 kJ/mol F F 159 kJ/mol N = N 418 kJ/mol H F 565 kJ/mol F N 283 kJ/mol N N 945 kJ/mol H N 391 kJ/mol N N 160 kJ/mol c) WRITE the balanced equation of the proposed mechanism, using the Lewis structures of the compounds/ions (instead of writing with chemical formulas). d) CALCULATE the change in bond enthalpy of the proposed mechanism. However, a new polynitrogen species is being studied. Pentazole anion, or N5-, is an anion from aromatic pentazole. Due to its all-nitrogen cyclical structure, chemists have been studying this anion as 8|DLRC Chem 16 LE2 Samplex

another alternative for propellants in space travel, but so far pentazole is known to be unstable and it does not last longer than a few seconds. e) DRAW the three most dominant resonance structures of pentazole anion. INDICATE the formal charges of each atom. GIVE the hybridization overlaps between the five nitrogen atoms for each resonance structure.

Problem 6: Molecular Orbital Theory

ARRANGE the groups of species (separately) in increasing order by: d) Bond Energy e) Bond Length f) CALCULATE the bond order of all the species. INDICATE their magnetic properties.

Problem 7: Activity of Lanthanum


Lanthanum metal forms cations with a charge of 3+. Consider the following observations about the chemistry of lanthanum: When lanthanum metal is exposed to air, a white solid A is formed that contains lanthanum and one other element. When lanthanum metal is added to water, gas bubbles are observed and a different white solid B is formed. Both A and B dissolve in hydrochloric acid to give a clear solution. When either of these solutions is evaporated, a soluble white solid C remains. If compound C is dissolved in water and sulfuric acid is added, a white precipitate D forms. a) PROPOSE identities for the substances A, B, C, and D. b) WRITE net ionic equations for all the reactions described. c) Is Lanthanum, in the activity series, above hydrogen or below hydrogen? EXPLAIN.

f)

INDICATE which elements will be protected by lanthanum from corrosion.

Problem 8: Permanganometry
Permanganometry is a special redox titration that involves the use of permanganates, and it is an alternative to acid-base titration because permanganates can transform to different manganese species, depending on the pH of the solution. Standardization of KMnO4 is done by oxalic acid as the primary standard (You should know the formula of oxalic acid, based on inorganic nomenclature.) Oxalic acid was prepared by dissolving 0.63 g of oxalic acid crystals in 100 mL water. 20 mL of 0.1 M sulfuric acid is added to the oxalic acid solution to acidify the medium. The results of the standardization are as follows: Trial Starting Point Endpoint 1 0.0 mL 3.7 mL 2 3.7 mL 7.5 mL 3 7.5 mL 11.0 mL Organic acids (Acids containing C, H, and O) turn into carbon dioxide gas and water during titration. a) WRITE the balanced redox equation for standardization. b) CALCULATE the molarity of KMnO4 in each trial, and the average molarity of KMnO4. A Chem 16 student wants to find out the amount of Ascorbic Acid (MF = C6H8O6) in a sample of orange juice. A 25 mL orange juice sample was added with 25 mL distilled water, and was titrated with the KMnO4 solution. While titrating, the analyte slowly turned into a solution with brown precipitate.

Problem 9: Olympicene
Olympicene (MW = 240.286 g/mol) is a special aromatic compound with five carbon rings stacked together like a benzene ring. It was recently synthesized by Anish Mistry and David Fox of the University of Warwick only for the purpose of celebrating the London 2012 Olympics. 1.00 g of olympicene (only containing C and H) was burned in excess oxygen and the combustion yielded 3.48 g carbon dioxide. a) CALCULATE the molecular formula of olympicene.

The following reactions are steps for Solvay Process: NaCl(aq) + CO2(g) + NH3(g) + H2O(l) NaHCO3(s) + NH4Cl(s) Hrxn = -129.48 kJ/mol Srxn = -394.81 J/mol*K CaCO3(s) CaO(s) + CO2(g) Hrxn = 178.3 kJ/mol Srxn = 160.47 J/mol*K CaO(s) + H2O(l) Ca(OH)2(s) Hrxn = -65.17 kJ/mol Srxn =-26.26 J/mol*K Ca(OH)2(s) + 2NH4Cl(s) 2NH3(g) + CaCl2(aq) + 2H2O(l) Hrxn = 73.75 kJ/mol Srxn =356.82 J/mol*K 2 NaHCO3(s) Na2CO3(s) + H2O(l) + CO2(g) Hrxn = -85.17 kJ/mol Srxn =215.31 J/mol*K The overall reaction of the spontaneous process is: 2 NaCl(aq) + CaCO3(s) Na2CO3(s) + CaCl2(aq). a) CALCULATE the overall Hrxn of the Solvay process. b) CALCULATE the overall free energy change of the Solvay process in 25 C c) If 1324.2 kJ of free energy were released in the process (in excess calcium carbonate): a.
