Short Description



CHAPTER 1 SOLID STATE 1 mk ‘Q’ Q 1. ‘Crystalline Solids are anisotropic in nature’. What does this Statement mean? A 1. The statement means that some of the physical properties like electrical resistance or refractive index of Crystalline Solids show different values when measured along different directions in the same crystal. Q 2.

Why does the presence of excess of lithium make LiCl crystals pink?

A 2. The presence of excess of lithium makes LiCl crystals pink due to e -s trapped in anionic vacancies (F centers). These electrons absorb some energy of the white light giving pink colour to LiCl crystal.6 Q3. What is meant by anti-ferromagnetism? What type of substances exhibit anti ferromagnetism? A3. Substance like MnO, MnO2 in which magnetic domains are oppositely oriented and cancel out each other’s magnetic moment exhibit anti ferromagnetism. Magnetic. Alignment of magnetic moments in antiferromagnetic substance:OR Q3 What type of substance would make better magnets, ferromagnetic or ferromagnetic? A3. Ferromagnetic substance would make better magnets because when ferromagnetic substance is placed in magnetic field all the domains get oriented in the direction of the magnetic field and a strong magnetic effect is produced eg : Co, Ni Q4. In a compound nitrogen atoms (N) make ccp and metal atoms (M) occupy one third of the tetrahedral voids present. Determine the formula of the compound formed by M & N? A4.

3 mk Q1.

In terms of band theory. What is the difference? (a)

between a conductor and an insulator.


between a conductor and a semi conductor. Empty conduction band

Filled (valence band)


Partially filled band

Over lappling band



(a) In conductors, energy band is partially filled or it overlaps with a higher energy unoccupied conduction band. Due to this electrons can flow easily under an applied electric field and show conductivity In insulators, the gap between filled valence band and the next higher unoccupied band is large, hence electrons cannot jump to it and substance has very small conductivity and behaves as an insulator. Empty band (conduction band)

Filled band (Valence band)

(b) In semiconductors the gap between valence band and conduction band is small. Therefore some electrons may jump from valence band to conduction band and show some conductivity eg ‘Si’ and ‘Ge’

Tetrahedral void and Octahedral void?

Hexagonal close packing AB AB—type packing is called hexagonal close packing. i.e spheres of the third layer are exactly aligned with those of the first layer . eg : ‘Mg’ and ‘Zn’


Cubic close packing ABC ABC—type packing is called cubic close packing. i.e spheres of the third layer are not aligned with those of 1 st or 2nd. When 4th layer is placed its spheres are aligned with those of 1st layer. eg :- ‘Cu’ and ‘Ag’ Tetrahedral void Octahedral void A tetrahedral void lattice is surrounded An octahedral void surrounded by Crystal Unit is cell The three whichdimensional crystal by lattice by 4 spheres lie at the The six smallest spheres portion and of formed a arrangement of tetrahedron. constituent which whenof 2repeated different vertices of a regular combination triangular in voids of the st nd particles in the space which directions, generates the entire lattice. 1 and 2 layer There are 2 how tetrahedral voids per There is one octahedral void per atom represents the constituent atom in a crystal particles (atoms, ions or in a crystal molecules) are arranged in a Account crystalfor the following :(i)

Table salt, NaCl sometimes appears yellow in colour.


FeO(s) is not formed in stoichiometric composition.


Some of the very old glass objects appear slightly milky instead of being transparent.


(i) Yellow colour in NaCl is due to metal excess defect due to which unpaired electrons occupy anionic vacancies. These sites are called F centers. These electrons absorb energy from the visible region and transmits yellow colour.

(ii) In the crystal of FeO, some of the Fe2+ cations are replaced by Fe3+ ions. Three Fe2+ ions are replaced by two Fe 3+ ions to make up for the loss of positive charge. Thus there would be less amount of metal as compared to stoichiometric properties. (iii) Very old glass objects become slightly milky, because of heating during the day & cooling at nights i.e annealing. Over a number of years, glass acquires some crystalline character. Q5.

Define an ideal solution and write one of its characteristics?


The solutions which obey Raoult’s law over the entire range of concentration are known as ideal solutions. i.e P = PoA x and P = PoB x A

For ideal solutions


H mix = 0 and



V mix = 0.

eg ;- Solution of n – hexane and n- heptane Q 2.

What is meant by reverse osmosis ?

A2 The process in which the solvent flows from the solution into the pure solvent through the semi permeable membrane when a pressure higher than the osmotic pressure is applied on the solution is called reverse osmosis. Application :- The technique is used in the desalination of sea water. Q3.

Define mole fraction.

A3 The mole fraction of a component is the ratio of the number of moles of that component to the total number of moles of all the components present in the solution. For a binary solution consisting of 2 components A and B if n A is the number of moles of A and nB is the number of moles of B then. x


= __nA___ nA + nB

Q 4.



= _ nB___

nA + nB

Define the term azeotrope?

A4 The constant boiling mixture which distill out unchanged in their composition are called azeotropes. Eg :- A mixture of ethanol and water containing 95.4% of ethanol forms an azeotrope with boiling point 351.15 K.

Q5. Explain boiling point elevation constant for a solvent / Define ebullioscopic constant? A5


Tb = Kb.m where m is molality

When m = 1 Kb =


Therefore Ebullioscopic constant is defined as the elevation in boiling point of a solution when 1 mole of a solute is dissolved in 1 Kg of solvent . Q6

What are isotonic solutions ?

A6 The solutions of equimolar concentrations having same osmotic pressure at given temperature are called isotonic solutions. eg :- A 0.9% solution of pure NaCl is isotonic with human red blood cells.

Q7 Explain why aquatic species are more comfortable in cold water rather than in warm water? A7 Aquatic species need dissolved oxygen for breathing. As solubility of gases decrease with increase of temperature, less oxygen is available in summers in lakes. Hence they feel more comfortable in winter when the solubility is higher. OR Q7 Why do gases nearly always tend to be less soluble in liquid as the temperature is raised? A7 Dissolution of gas in liquid is an exothermic process. Gas + Solvent Solution + heat. Therefore as per Lechatlier’s principle if the temperature is increased, equilibrium shifts backward i.e the solubility decreases. 2 mk Q1 How is the vapour pressure of a solvent affected when a non volatile solute is dissolved in it?

A1 When a non volatile solute is added to a solvent, its vapour pressure decreases because some of the surface sites are occupied by solute molecules. Thus less space is available for the solvent molecules to vaporize. Q2. The depression in freezing point of water observed for the same molar concentrations of acetic acid, trichloro acetic acid and trifluoroacetic acid increases in the order as stated above. Explain? A2 As depression in ( Tf) is dependent on degree of dissociation (α) and fluorine exerts the highest – I effect. So trifluoro acetic acid is the strongest acid and ionizes to a greater extent while acetic acid ionises to the minimum extent. Thus greater the number of ions produced, greater is the depression in freezing point.

Q3. Differentiate between molarity and molality for a solution. How does a change in temperature influence their values? Or Q3. State the main advantage of molality over molarity as the unit of concentration?

Molarity It is defined as the number of moles of solute dissolved in one litre of the solution Mathematically Molarity (M) =No of moles of solute x 1000 Vol of Solution (ml)

Molality It is defined as the number of moles of solute dissolved in 1 Kg of the solvent Mathematically Molality (M) =No of moles of solute x 1000 Mass of Solvent (g)

It decreases with increase in temperature It does not change with change in (as V α T) temperature Since molality does not change with a change in temperature therefore it is a better method to express the concentration of a solution. Q4. What is meant by colligative property. List any four factors on which colligative properties of a solution depend?

A4. The properties of solutions which depend upon the number of solute particles and not upon the nature of the solute are known as colligative properties eg :- Osmotic pressure. Factors :(i) (ii) (iii) (iv)

Number of particles of solute. Concentration of solution. Temperature. Association or dissociation of solute.

An aqueous solution of sodium chloride freezes below 273K. Explain the lowering in freezing point of water with the help of a suitable diagram? Q5.

A5. Freezing point of a substance is the temperature at which solid and liquid phases of a substance coexist i.e they have the same vapour pressure. As the vapour pressure of the solution is less than that of pure solvent For solution its vapour pressure will become equal to Vapour that of a solid solvent only at a lower temperature.

Express this in percent by mass.


Determine the molality of CHCl3 in water sample.

15 ppm means 15 parts in 106 parts by mass in the solution. i.e

106 parts by mass of solution = 15 parts of solute. or 100 parts (Mass %) =

= 1.25 x 10-4m Q2 State Raoult’s law for a solution containing volatile components. How does Raoult’s law becomes as special case of Henry’s law? A2 For a solution of volatile liquids, the partial vapour pressure of each component in the solution is directly proportional to its mole fraction? i.e

PA α



PB α




PA = P0A









Where PA and PB are the partial pressure of A and B, P 0A , P0B are the vapour pressure of pure component and x and x are their mole fractions. A


If gas is the solute and liquid is the solvent then according to Henry’s law PA = K H x


Thus Raoult’s laws and Henry’s law become identical except that their proportionality constants are different. Q3 Some ethylene glycol is added to your car’s cooling system along with 5kg of water. If the freezing point of water-glycol solution is -15 0c, what is the boiling point of the solution? Kb = 0.52 K Kgmol-1 and Kf = 1.86 K Kg mol-1 A3

Ka = 3.07 x 10-3 Q7. Non ideal solutions exhibit either positive or negative deviations from Raoult’s law. What are these deviations and why are they caused? Explain with one example for each type? A7 For non ideal solutions, vapour pressure is either higher or lower than that predicted by Raoult’s law. If it is higher the solution exhibits positive deviation and if it is lower it exhibits negative deviation from Raoult’s law. Positive Deviation When solute – solvent interactions are weaker than solute – solute or solvent solvent interactions, vapour pressure increases which result in positive deviation. Eg :- Ethanol +Acetone. for a solution showing +ve deviation PA > PoA XA and PB > PoB XB H mix = +ve Vmix = +ve

Negative Deviation When solute solvent interactions are stronger than solute – solute or solvent – solvent interactions, vapour pressure decreases which result in negative deviation. eg :- Chloroform + Acetone. for a solution showing –ve deviation PA < PoA XA PB < P0B XB H mix = - ve Vmix = - ve

1 mole of Na2CO3 requires 2 moles of HCl Therefore 0.00526 mole of 0.0152 moles of HCl.

Na 2 CO3

requires 2 x 0.00526 moles or

1 mole of NaHCO3 requires 1 mole of HCl Therefore 0.00526 mole of NaHCO3 requires 0.00526 moles of HCl. Total moles of HCl required = 0.01052 + 0.00526 = 0.01578 moles To calculate volume of 0.1M HCl 1.1 mole of 0.1M HCl are present m 1000ml HCl Therefore 0.01578 mole of 0.1M HCl will be present in 1000 x 0.01578 0.1 = 157.8 ml Q2.

(i) The net spontaneous flow of the solvent molecules from the solvent to the solution or from a less concentrated solution to a more concentrated solution through a semipermeable membrane is called osmosis. Osmotic pressure :- The minimum excess pressure that has to be applied on the solution to prevent the entry of the solvent into the solution through the semipermeable membrane is called osmotic pressure. (iii) (iv)

1% NaCl solution (ii) 0.5 % NaCl solution

(c) Calculate the molarity of 68% (w/w) solution of nitric acid , if the density of the solution is 1.504 g ml-1

A4. (a) Ethanol and acetone shows positive deviation because on mixing the two the forces of attraction decreases and the vapour pressure increases. (b)


Since RBC’s are isotonic with 0.9% NaCl solution therefore (i)

In 1% solution of NaCl they will shrink due to plasmolysis


In 0.5% solution of NaCl they will swell or may even burst.



% x density x 10 Molar mass

Mass % = 68 , d = 1.504 Molar mass of HNO3 = 63 gmol-1 Therefore Molarity = 68 x 1.504 x 10 63 = 16.23 M Q5.


State Henry’s law and mention two of its important applications

(b) The partial pressure of ethane over a saturated solution containing 6.56 x 10-2g of ethane is 1bar. If the solution were to contain 5 x 10 -2 g of ethane, then what will be the partial pressure of the gas.



Henry’s law states that at a constant temperature , the solubility

x of a

gas in a liquid is directly proportional to the pressure of the gas P = KH


Applications :-

To increase thje solubility of CO 2 in soda water, the bottle is sealed under high pressure


There is a low concentration of oxygen in the blood and tissues of the people living at high altitudes due to which they feel weak and are unable to think clearly (anoxia).


(b) M = KH x P For the 1st case 6.56 x 10-2 = KH x 1 bar or KH = 6.56 x 10-2 g bar -1 In the 2nd case 5 x 10 -2 = (6.56 x 10-2) x P or P = 5 x 10 -2 6.56 x 10 -2 P = 0.762 bar



What is meant by shape selective catalysis?

A1) The catalytic reaction that depends upon the pore structure of the catalyst and the size of the reactant and product molecules is called shape selective catalysis. eg:-

What are the dispersed phase and dispersion medium in milk?


Dispersed phase : Fat Dispersion medium : water


What is Collodion?


Collodion is 4% solution of nitro cellulose in a mixture of alcohol and ether.


Define Kraft temperature?

A4) The formation of micelles from the ionic surfactant can take place only above a certain temperature which is called Kraft temperature. Q5)

Why is adsorption always exothermic ? Or What is the sign of



S when a gas is adsorbed by adsorbent ?

When a gas is adsorbed in the surface of solid, its entropy decreased i.e. S =-ve. From Gibbs Helmholtz equation : G = H – T S for the process to be spontaneous , G must be negative, which is possible only when H = -ve . Hence adsorption is always exothermic.

Q6) Why is it essential to wash the precipitate with water before estimating it quantitatively? A6) Some amount of the electrolytes mixed to form the precipitate remains adsorbed on the surface of the particles of the precipitate. Hence it is essential to wash it with water before it quantitatively. Q7)

What happens when persistent dialysis of colloidal solution is carried out?

A7) The stability of a colloidal sol is due to the presence of a small amount of the electrolyte. On persistent dialysis, the electrolyte is completely removed, so the colloidal sol becomes unstable and gets coagulated.


What causes Brownian movement in a colloidal solution?

A8) Brownian movement ie zigzag movement of the colloidal particles is due to hitting of these particles by the molecules of the dispersion medium with different forces from different directions. Q 9)

Why it is important to have clean surface in surface studies?

A 9)

It facilitates the adsorption of species on the adsorbent.

Q 10) What happens when gelatin is mixed with gold sol? A 10) Gold sol is a lyophobic sol. On addition of gelatin, the sol is stabilized.. Q 11) Gelatin which is a peptide is added in ice – creams. What can be it s role? A 11) Ice –creams are emulsion which get stabilized by emulsifying agents like gelatin. Q 12) What is the role of activated charcoal in gas mask used in coal mine? A 12) Activated charcoal adsorbs poisonous gases present in coal mine. Q 13) In what way is a sol different from a gel? A 13) Sols are colloidal solutions of solid dispersed in liquid while gels are colloidal solutions of liquid dispersed in solid. Q 14) Of NH3 and N2, which gas will be adsorbed more readily on the surface of charcoal and why? A 14) NH3 is adsorbed more readily as it is more easily liquefiable compared to N2, Moreover, NH3 molecule has greater molecular size. Q 15) How does it become possible to cause artificial rain by spraying silver iodide on the clouds? A 15) Clouds are colloidal in nature and carry a charge. On spraying silver iodide which is an electrolyte, the charge on the colloidal particles is neutralized. Clouds coagulate to form rain. Q 16) What is the role of diffusion in heterogeneous catalysis? A 16) The gas molecules diffuse onto the surface of the catalyst and get adsorbed. After the chemical change, the products formed diffuse away from the surface of the catalyst setting the surface free for other reactant molecules to adsorb on the surface and give the product.

Q3) What is meant by coagulation of a colloidal solution? Describe briefly any three methods by which coagulation of lyophobic sols can be carried out? A3) The process of aggregating together the colloidal particles is called coagulation of the sol. It is also known as precipitation. Following are the three methods by which coagulation of lyophobic sols can be carried out.



Electrophoresis. In this process, the colloidal particles move towards oppositely charged electrodes and get discharged resulting in coagulation.


Mixing of two oppositely charges sols. When equal proportions of positively charges sols are mixed, they neutralize each other resulting in coagulation.


Dialysis. By this method, electrolytes present in sol are removed completely and colloid becomes unstable resulting in coagulation colloid is a heterogeneous system, e.g gold sol, sulphur sol, soap, etc.

What are emulsions ? Discuss the role of an emulsifier in forming emulsion.

A4) Emulsions are one of the types of colloidal system, in which both the dispersed phase and dispersion medium are liquids, e.g milk.

Role of emulsifier Emulsifying agents are added to emulsions to stabilize them. The emulsifying agent forms an interfacial film between suspended particles and the medium. For oil in water emulsions, the principal emulsifying agents are gums, proteins, natural and synthetic soaps. Q 5)

What are enzymes? Write in brief the mechanism of enzyme catalysis.


Enzymes are biochemical catalysts whih are globular proteins and form macromolecular colloidal solution in water.

The mechanism of enzyme catalysis may be explained on the basis of lock and key theory. Acc to the theory , Enzymes are highly specific due to the presence of active sites on their surface. The shape of active site of any given enzyme is such that only a specific substrate can fit in to it just as one key can fit into a particular lock enzyme catalyzed reactions takes place in two steps as follows :Step I :E

Formation of Enzyme – substrate complex +

What do you mean by activity and selectivity of catalysts?

A7) Activity : Ability of a catalyst to accelerate chemical reactions is known as its activity . For example, Pt catalyses the combination of H 2 and O2 to form water. It has been found that for hydrogenation reactions, the catalytic activity increases from Group 5 to Group 11 metals with maximum activity being shown by Group 7-9 elements of the periodic table. Selectivity : The ability of a catalyst to direct a reaction to yield a particular product is called its selectivity. Combination of CO and H 2 yields different products with different catalysts as given below :CO (g) + 3H2 (g)


CH4 (g) + H2O (g)

CO (g) + H2 (g)


CO (g) + H2 (g)

Cu I ZnO – Cr O 2 3

HCHO (g) CH3OH (g).


Describe some features of catalysis by zeolites?


(i) Zeolites are hydrated alumino-silicates which have a three- dimensional network structure containing water molecules in their pores.

(ii) On heating, water of hydration present in the pores is lost and the pores become vacant to carry out catalysis. (iii) The size of the pores varies from 260 to 740 pm. Thus, only those molecules can be adsorbed in these pores and catalyzed whose size fits these pores. Hence, they act as molecular sieves or shape selective catalysts. An important catalyst used in petroleum industry is ZSM -5 (Zeolite sieve of molecular porosity – 5). It converts alcohols into petrol by dehydrating them to form a mixture of hydrocarbons.

Adsorption of reactants on the solid surface of the catalyst increases the rate of reaction. (iii) Froth floatation process. A low grade sulphine ore is concentrated by this method using pine oil and frothing agent. The mineral particles become wet by oils while the gangue particles by water.


What is an adsorption isotherm? Describe Freundlich adsorption isotherm.

A 3) Adsorption isotherm. It is the variation in the amount of gas adsorbed by the adsorbent with pressure at constant temperature. Freundlich’s adsorption isotherm. It is an empirical relationship between the quantity of gas adsorbed by unit mass of solid adsorbent and pressure at a particular temperature. 1 x  kp n (n  1) m

n  1,


x  kp m


…. (i) x  m


Where x is the mass of gas adsorbed on mass m of the adsorbent at pressure p.k and n are constants which depend on the nature of the adsorbent and the gas at a particular temperature. Taking log in Eq. (i), gives log

x 1  log k  log p m n


x m

The validity of Freundlich isotherm can be verified by plotting on Y-axis and log p on X-axis. If, it comes to be a straight line, the Freundlich isotherm is valid.

Explain why. a) Vinyl chloride is unreactive in nuceophilic substation reaction b) 3-Bromocyclohexene is more reactive than 4-Bromocyclohexene in hydrolysis with aq.NaOH c) tert-butyl chloride reacts with aq.NaOH by SN 1 mechanism, while n-butyl chloride reacts with aq.NaOH by SN2 mechanism. Ans a) Vinyl chloride is unreactive in nucleophikic substitution reactions due to reasanance which results in a partial double bond character of C-Cl bond which is difficult to break.

b) 3-bromocyclohexene forms allyl carbocation which is more stable than carbocation formed by 4-Bromocycohexene c) Tertiary carbocation is stable, so tert-butyl chloride follows SN 1 mechanism. Nbutyl chloride would form 1o carbocation which isn’t that stable. Hence it undergoes SN2 mechanism through formation of transition state. 9)

How would you obtain i) Picric acid from phenol? ii) 2- Methylpropan-2-ol from 2- Methylpropene? i)




5) A)

Give reasons : a) Boiling points of alcohols decrease with increase in branching of the alkyl chain. b) Phenol does not give protonation reaction readily a) Because increase in branching of the alkyl chain reduces surface area, so intermolecular forces of attraction decrease. b) Because the lone pair on oxygen is delocalized over the benzene ring due to resonance, hence not available for protonation easily. Explain why cleavage of phenyl alkyl ether with HBr always gives phenol and alkyl bromide. Due to resonance, the O-C bond in phenyl alkyl ether has a partial double bond character, hence it is difficult to break. Also, phenoxide ion is stabilized by resonance, hence we get phenol and alkyl bromide.
