## 7. There are four bottles 1,2,3,4 containing following compounds.

Bottle-1 : ; Bottle-2 :

Bottle-3 : ; Bottle-4 :

## Identify the bottle :

(I) (A) whose content does not react with 1N HCl or 1N NaOH.
(B) whose content reacts with 1N NaOH only.
(C) whose content reacts with 1N NaOH and 1N HCl both.
(D) whose content reacts with 1N HCl only.
(II) The bottle whose content is highly soluble in distilled water.

Sol. (I) (A) Bottle-3 does not react with HCl or NaOH.

## (B) Bottle-2 reacts only with NaOH.

(C) Bottle-4 reacts both NaOH or HCl both.
(D) Bottle-1 reacts with HCl only.
(II) Bottle-4 is highly soluble in distilled water due to zwitter ion formation.

8. A copper ore was treated with HNO3 to form Cu(NO3)2, Which on further reaction with K, forms Cu2, which
decomposes to form Cu22 and 2, 2 was titrated with Na2S2O3.
(I) Balance the reactions involved (find out values of a to )
(a) a Cu + b HNO3  c Cu(NO3)2 + d NO + e H2O
(b) f Cu2  g Cu22 + h 2
(c) i Na2S2O3 + j 2  k Na2S4O6 +  Na

(II) 2.54 g of 2 was evolved : Find the percentage purity of copper in 2 g of ore.

## Sol. (i) Balanced equation are :

(a) 3 Cu + 8 HNO3  3 Cu(NO3)2 + 4 NO + 3 H2O
(b) 2 Cu2  Cu22 + 2
(c) 2 Na2S2O3 + 2  Na2S4O6 + 2 Na

2.54
(ii) Mole of 2 = = 0.01
254
Mole of Cu2 = 2 × mole of 2 = 0.02
Mole of Cu2 = mole of Cu = 0.02
wt. = 0.02 × 6.25 = 1.27 g

% purity = × 100 = 63.5%

## 9. Human being 2500 K cal of energy per day

C12H22O11 + 12 O2  12 CO2 + 11 H2O
H = – 5.6 × 106 J / mol
(i) Human being required ..................... kJ of energy per day.
(ii) Amount of sucrose required per day and volume of CO2 evolved during the process.

2500
Sol. (i) kJ = 598 kJ
4.18

598
(ii) Mole of sucrose required = = 0.106
5.6  10 6  10 3
wt. of sucrose required = 0.101 × 342 = 36.52 gm
