Q1 :

Answer :

Given,

Initial pressure,

*p*1 = 1 bar
Initial volume,

*V*1 = 500 dm3
Final volume,

*V*2 = 200 dm3
Since the temperature remains constant, the final pressure (

*p*2) can be calculated using Boyle's law.

Answer :

A vessel of 120 mL capacity contains a certain amount of gas at 35 °C and 1.2 bar pressure. The gas is transferred to another vessel of volume 180 mL at 35 °C. What would be its pressure?

Answer :

Given,

Initial pressure,

*p*1 = 1.2 bar
Initial volume,

*V*1 = 120 mL
Final volume,

Answer :

The drain cleaner, Drainex contains small bits of aluminum which react with caustic soda to produce dihydrogen. What volume of dihydrogen at 20 °C and one bar will be released when 0.15g of aluminum reacts?

Answer :

The reaction of aluminium with caustic soda can be represented as:

At STP (273.15 K and 1 atm), 54 g (2 × 27 g) of Al gives 3 × 22400 mL of H2..

0.15 g Al gives i.e., 186.67 mL of H2.

At STP,

Q21 :

Answer :

In terms of Charles' law explain why -273°C is the lowest possible temperature.

Answer :

Charles' law states that at constant pressure, the volume of a fixed mass of gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature.

It was found that for all gases (at any given pressure), the plots of volume vs. temperature (in °C) is a straight line. If this line is extended to zero volume, then it intersects the temperature-axis at - 273°C. In other words, the volume of any gas at -273°C is zero. This is because all gases get liquefied before reaching a temperature of - 273°C. Hence, it can be concluded that - 273°C is the lowest possible temperature.

Q22 :

Answer :

Critical temperature for carbon dioxide and methane are 31.1 °C and -81.9 °C respectively. Which of these has stronger intermolecular forces and why?

Answer :

Higher is the critical temperature of a gas, easier is its liquefaction. This means that the intermolecular forces of attraction between the molecules of a gas are directly proportional to its critical temperature. Hence, intermolecular forces of attraction are stronger in the case of CO2.

Q23 :

Answer :

Explain the physical significance of Van der Waals parameters.

Answer :

Physical significance of 'a':

'a' is a measure of the magnitude of intermolecular attractive forces within a gas.

Physical significance of 'b':

'b' is a measure of the volume of a gas molecule.
