   Section B

    Question 6 ( 2.0 marks)
   State as a mathematical formula the de Broglie relationship for moving particles. W hat experimental
   evidence is available for this concept?


   Specify the ranges of values for quantum numbers ml and ms for an electron in an atom when the n
   quantum number value for it is 2. What is the significance of these values for the orbitals?

   According to De Broglie relationship for moving particles,

   This concept was experimentally verified by Nickel Crystal with the help of the diffraction pattern of


   When Principal Quantum number, n = 2,

   l = 0, 1

   When l = 0,

   This signifies that the electron is present in the s sub-shell, and can have two orientations.

   When l = 1,

   This signifies that the electron is present in the p sub-shell, which has 3 orbitals. Electrons in each
   orbital can have two orientations.

    Question 9 ( 2.0 marks)
   Explain any one of the following statements:

   (i) The transition metals are well known for the formation of interstitial compounds.

   (ii) The largest number of oxidation states are exhibited by manganese in the first series of
   transition elements.

   (i) Small atoms like hydrogen, carbon, boron and nitrogen occupy the interstitial sites in the lattices
   of transition metals. This gives rise to their interstitial compounds. This is mainly due to the vacant d
   orbital in transition metals and variable oxidation states.

   (ii) In each group of transition metals, oxidation states increase with increase in atomic number,
   reach a maximum in the middle, and then, start decreasing. The increase in oxidation states is due
   to the increase in the number of valence electrons with the increase in atomic number. As
   manganese lies in the middle, it has the maximum number of valence electrons. Hence, it shows
   maximum oxidation states.

    Question 16 ( 3.0 marks)

   Using the values of ∆f HΘ and ∆rSΘ , given herein, calculate the standard molar Gibbs energy of
   formation, (∆f GΘ ) for CS2 (l).


   ∆H = 89.70 kJ mol−1 = 89.70 × 10 3 J mol−1

   T = 298 K

   ∴Standard molar Gibbs energy of formation,         G

   = 89.70 × 103 J mol−1 − 298 K × 151.34 J K−1 mol−1

   = 89.70 × 103 − 45.10 × 10 3 J mol−1

   (ii) an electrolyte solution is added to a sol.

   (iii) an emulsion is subjected to high-speed centrifugation.

……/6HfQ3MmOhVMw…                                                                        6/12
2/4/2011                                           Subjective Test Paper - Chemistry - Meri…
   (i) When the electrodes connected to a battery are dipped in a solution, the ions produced by the
   dissociation of the electrolyte move towards the oppositely charged electrodes. The cations move
   towards the negatively charged electrode while the anions move towards the positively charged

   (ii) The addition of an electrolyte causes a colloidal solution to coagulate.

   (iii) On high-speed centrifugation, an emulsion decomposes into its constituent liquids.

    Question 19 ( 3.0 marks)
   Answer the following questions:

   (i) Which element in the first series of transition elements does not exhibit variable oxidation states
   and why?

   (ii) What happens when a solution of copper (II) sulphate is saturated with ammonia?

   (iii) Why do actinoids, in general, exhibit a greater range of oxidation states than lanthanoids?

   (i) Scandium, with the atomic number ‘21’, does not show variable oxidation states. After losing
   three electrons, all the orbitals in scandium are fully filled.

   Thus, scandium exhibits only +3 oxidation state.

   (ii) In the presence of ammonia, copper (II) sulphate splits into two sets having slightly different
   energies. Thus, d−d transition occurs and it acquires blue colour.

   In this reaction, [Cu(NH3 )4 ]2+ is produced.

   (iii) Actinoids exhibit greater range of oxidation states than lanthanoids. This is because 5f, 6d and
   7s sub-shells in actinoids are of comparable energies.

    Question 20 ( 3.0 marks)
   (a) Illustrate the following with an example each.

   (i) Linkage isomerism

   (ii) Coordination isomerism

   (b) Why is           paramagnetic? (Ni = 28)


   (i) Linkage isomerism results when there are two ways in which a ligand can get attached to the
   central atom.

   For example, NO 2 group can bind to a metal, either through a nitrogen atom or an oxygen atom, as

   (ii) Coordination isomerism is shown by the compounds in which the cation and the anion are

   For example,

   (b) In [NiCl4 ]2−, the oxidation state of nickel is +2. Thus, Ni has 8 electrons in the 3d orbital and no
   electron in the 4s orbital. Chlorine, being a weak-field ligand, forms sp3 hybridisation. As there are 2
   unpaired electrons in the 3d orbital of Ni, the complex is paramagnetic.

    Question 26 ( 5.0 marks)
   (a) How would you account for any two of the following:

   (i) PbO 2 is a stronger oxidising agent than SnO2

   (ii) H3 PO 2 acts as a monobasic acid.

   (iii) The pKa value for HOCl is higher than that of HOClO

   (b) Draw the structures of the following species:

   (i) Peroxodisulphuric acid, H2 S2 O 8

   (ii) Xenon tetrafluoride, XeF4


   (a) Assign reasons for any two of the following observations:

   (i) The lower oxidation state becomes more stable with increasing atomic number in Group 13.

   (ii) Hydrogen iodide is a stronger acid than hydrogen fluoride in aqueous solution.

   (iii) The basic character among the hydrides of Group-15 elements decreases with increasing atomic

   (b) Draw the structural formula for XeOF4 .


   (i) PbO 2 is stronger oxidising agent than SnO 2 . This is because of the presence of poor shielding f
   orbitals in Pb. Thus, the effective nuclear charge on the outer shell electrons increases, and this
   makes PbO 2 a strong oxidising agent.

   (ii) The structure of H3 PO 2 is

……/6HfQ3MmOhVMw…                                                                            10/12
2/4/2011                                         Subjective Test Paper - Chemistry - Meri…

   Though it has three hydrogen atoms, only one of these is attached to an oxygen atom. Only those
   hydrogen atoms are acidic which are connected to oxygen atoms; therefore, H3 PO 2 acts as a
   monobasic acid.

   (iii) The pKa value is determined by acidic strength. The conjugate base of HOCl is less stable than
   the conjugate base of HOClO. Thus, HO 2 Cl is a stronger acid. Also, increase in the number of oxygen
   atoms increases the stability of the conjugate base.






   (i) The outer electronic configuration of group-13 elements is ns 2 np1. On moving down the group,
   due to inert pair effect, there is a decrease in the tendency of the s electrons of the valence shell to
   participate in bond formation. This is due to the poor shielding of ns 2 electrons by the intervening d
   orbital. Thus, the lower oxidation state becomes more stable with increasing atomic number.

   (ii) Hydrogen iodide is a strong acid. This is because the small size of hydrogen and the big size of
   iodine make the H−I bond very weak. On the other hand, due to the similar sizes of H and F, the H−F
   bond is quite strong. Thus, HI is a stronger acid than HF in aqueous solution.

   (iii) Among the group-15 elements, nitrogen has a small size and its density per unit volume is more.
   On moving down the group, the size of the central metal increases; thus, electron density
   decreases. As a result, the electron-donor capacity or the basic strength of group-15 hydrides
   decreases with increasing atomic numbers.
