    2. b. 62
    3. c. 354
    4. d. 155


    1. Answer: (b)

      For applying formula of ΔTf we have to final α,

      α= 80/100 = 0.8

      α= (1-i)/(1-1/n)

      α= (1-i)/(1-1/4)

      α= (1-i)/(3/4)

      i = 0.4

      ΔTf = 0.3

      0.3 = (i×Kf×w2×1000)/(m2×100)

      m2 = 62g/mol

    1. Answer: (c)

      By de Broglie equation, λA = h/PA

      And λB = h/PB

      λAB = PA/PB

      PB = ½ PA (Given)

      λAB = ½ PA/PA=PA

      λB = 2λA

      λB = 2×5×10-8m

    Question 41:. Relative lowering of the vapour pressure of a dilute solution of glucose dissolved in 1kg of water is 0.002. The molality of the solution is

    1. a. 0.222
    2. b. 0.004
    3. c. 0.021
    4. d. 0.111


    1. Answer: (d)

      (P0-P)/P0 = (w2/m2)×(m1/w1)

      0.002 = (w2/m2)×(18/1000)

      w2/m2 = 0.11 mole

      Molality = (w2/m2)×(1000/w1)

      = 0.11×1000/1000

      = 0.11m

    4. d. 0.5 × 10–3 M


    1. Answer: (b)

      m = EIZ/96500

      = 12×1×965/96500

      = 12×10-2g

      Molarity = M = (w2/m2)×(1000/vm1)

      = (12×10-2/24)×(1000/1000)

      = 0.5×10-2

      = 5×10-3m

          Question 56:. Which is a wrong statement?

          1. a. e-Ea/RT gives the fraction of reactant molecules that are activated at the given temp
          2. b. Rate constant k = Arrhenius constant A ; if Ea = 0.
          3. c. Presence of catalyst will not alter the value of Ea.
          4. d. In k vs 1/T plot is a straight line.


          1. Answer: (c)

            ln k v/s 1/T graph is a straight line graph but the presence of catalyst will alter the value of Ea.

          Question 57:. 1L of 2M CH3COOH is mixed with 1L of 3M C2H5OH to form an ester. The rate of the reaction with respect to the initial rate when each solution is diluted with an equal volume of water will be

          1. a. 2 times
          2. b. 0.25 times
          3. c. 4 times
          4. d. 0.5 times


          1. Answer: (b)

            For finding rate of reaction we have to write the equation of esterification.

            CH3COOH+C2H5OH CH3COOC2H5+H2O

            r = k [CH3COOH][C2H5OH]

            Order = 2

            When equal volumes of two solutions are mixed, the concentration of the solutions reduces to half of the initial value. Hence, the rate of reaction gets reduced to 1/4 of the initial rate.

          Question 58:. Which of the following is an example of homogeneous catalysis?

          1. a. Oxidation of SO2 in the contact process

          4. d. Oxidation of SO2 in the lead chamber process


          1. Answer: (d)

            When both reactants and catalysts are in the same phase, then the catalysis is homogeneous.

          Question 59:. Critical Micelle concentration for a soap solution is 1.5×10-4 mol L-1. Micelle formation is possible only when the concentration of soap solution in mol L-1 is:

          1. a. 4.6×10-5
          2. b. 2.0×10-3
          3. c. 1.1×10-4
          4. d. 7.5×10-5


          1. Answer: (b)

            Micelles are associated with colloids when the temperature increases above kraft temperature then particles get associated with each other and get into a colloidal range called ‘micelle’. For the formation of micelles, the concentration of soap should exceed CMC value.

          Question 60: Oxidation state of copper is +1 in

          1. a. Cuprite
          2. b. Malachite
          3. c. Chalcopyrite
          4. d. Azurite


          1. Answer: (a)

            In Cu2O cuprite oxidation state of Cu is +1.

            Cu2O let oxidation state of Cu is x

            2x+(-2) = 0

            2x = 2

            x = 2/2

            x = +1
