Number 3


(i) Classifying the alkanols:

  • Butan-2-ol: secondary alkanol
  • 2-methylpropanol: secondary alkanol
  • 2-methylpropan-2-ol: tertiary alkanol

(ii) Two methods to prepare ethanol commercially:

  • Fermentation: Ethanol can be produced by the fermentation of sugars using yeast. This is commonly used to produce alcoholic beverages and biofuels.
  • Hydration of ethene: Ethanol can be produced by the hydration of ethene (ethylene) in the presence of a catalyst, such as phosphoric acid.

(iii) To calculate the relative molecular mass of Z, we need to compare the rates of effusion or diffusion of Z and hydrogen. The rate of effusion/diffusion is inversely proportional to the square root of the molar mass. Since hydrogen diffuses 6 times as fast, the molar mass of Z is 6 times larger than the molar mass of hydrogen. Therefore, the relative molecular mass of Z is 6 * 2 = 12.

(bi) The electronic configuration of oxygen using s, p, d, f notation is 1s2 2s2 2p4.

(ii) Three physical properties of oxygen:
(i) Oxygen is a colorless and odorless gas.
(ii) It is slightly soluble in water.
(iii) Oxygen supports combustion and is necessary for respiration.

(iii) Two rules for naming alkenes:

  1. Alkenes must have the ending “-ene” in their name.
  2. The longest continuous carbon chain containing the double bond is used as the base name, and the position of the double bond is indicated by the lowest possible number.

(iv) Equation for the oxidation reaction of ethene:
Ethene + Oxygen → Carbon Dioxide + Water
C2H4 + O2 → CO2 + H2O

(ci) Endothermic reaction: A reaction that absorbs heat (energy) from the surroundings, resulting in a decrease in temperature.

(ii) Equation for the laboratory preparation of hydrogen using dilute tetraoxosulphate(VI) acid and Zinc:
Zn + H2SO4 → ZnSO4 + H2

(iii) The type of reaction involved in (cii) is a displacement reaction, where zinc displaces hydrogen from the acid to form hydrogen gas.

(iv) Three uses of hydrogen:
(i) Hydrogen is used as a fuel for combustion engines and fuel cells.
(ii) It is used in the production of ammonia for fertilizer and other chemicals.
(iii) Hydrogen is used in the hydrogenation of oils and fats in the food industry.


(i) Manufacturing sulfuric acid
(ii) Vulcanization of rubber
(iii) Formulation of Pesticides and fungicides

(i) It is a colorless gas that has a distinct smell of rotten eggs

Number of neutrons = Mass number (A) – Atomic number (Z)
I. ²³₁₁X
A = 23 (mass number)
Z = 11 (atomic number)

Number of neutrons = 23 – 11 = 12
II. ³⁹₁₉Y
A = 39 (mass number)
Z = 19 (atomic number)
Number of neutrons = 39 – 19 = 20

Molar mass:
Na = 22.99 g/mol
O₂ = 2 * 16.00 g/mol = 32.00 g/mol
Now, let’s calculate the mass of oxygen needed:

First, calculate the number of moles of sodium (Na) in 9.2g:
Number of moles = Mass / Molar mass
Number of moles of Na = 9.2g / 22.99 g/mol ≈ 0.4002 mol
Since the mole ratio of Na to O₂ is 4:1, the number of moles of O₂ needed is:
Number of moles of O₂ = 0.4002 mol / 4 ≈ 0.1001 mol
Now, calculate the mass of oxygen needed:
Mass of O₂ = Number of moles of O₂ * Molar mass of O₂
Mass of O₂ = 0.1001 mol * 32.00 g/mol ≈ 3.204 g
Therefore, approximately 3.204 grams of oxygen are needed to burn 9.2 grams of sodium.

CaCO₃(s) + 2 HCl(aq) —> CaCl₂(aq) + CO₂(g) + H₂O(l)
From the balanced equation, 1 mole of calcium carbonate (CaCO₃) reacts with 2 moles of HCl to produce 1 mole of calcium chloride (CaCl₂).
Molar masses:
CaCO₃ = Ca(40.08) + C(12.01) + 3O(16.00) = 100.09 g/mol
CaCl₂ = Ca(40.08) + 2Cl(35.45) = 110.98 g/mol
Now, let’s calculate the number of moles of CaCO₃ in 50g:
Number of moles of CaCO₃ = Mass / Molar mass
Number of moles of CaCO₃ = 50g / 100.09 g/mol ≈ 0.4998 mol
Since the mole ratio of CaCO₃ to CaCl₂ is 1:1, the number of moles of CaCl₂ that can be obtained is also approximately 0.4998 mol.
Thus, about 0.4998 moles of calcium chloride can be obtained from 50g of limestone in the presence of excess hydrogen chloride.

(i) Sol: A sol is a colloidal solution in which solid particles are dispersed in a liquid medium.
(ii) Aerosol: An aerosol is a colloidal solution in which liquid or solid particles are dispersed in a gas medium.

The law of definite proportions, also known as the law of constant composition, states that a given chemical compound always contains its constituent elements in fixed and definite proportions by mass. This means that the ratio of the masses of the elements in a compound is constant, regardless of the compound’s origin or method of preparation.

(I) Sodium trioxonitrate (V) is also known as sodium nitrate, with the chemical formula NaNO₃.
The atomic masses are as follows:
Na (Sodium) = 22.99 g/mol
N (Nitrogen) = 14.01 g/mol
O (Oxygen) = 16.00 g/mol
Relative molecular mass of NaNO₃ = (1 * Na) + (1 * N) + (3 * O)
Relative molecular mass of NaNO₃ = (1 * 22.99 g/mol) + (1 * 14.01 g/mol) + (3 * 16.00 g/mol)
Relative molecular mass of NaNO₃ = 22.99 g/mol + 14.01 g/mol + 48.00 g/mol
Relative molecular mass of NaNO₃ = 85.00 g/mol
Therefore, the relative molecular mass of sodium nitrate (NaNO₃) is 85.00 g/mol.

(II) Copper (II) trioxosulphate (VI) pentahydrate is also known as copper (II) sulfate pentahydrate, with the chemical formula CuSO₄ · 5H₂O.
The atomic masses are as follows:
Cu (Copper) = 63.55 g/mol
S (Sulfur) = 32.06 g/mol
O (Oxygen) = 16.00 g/mol
H (Hydrogen) = 1.01 g/mol
Relative molecular mass of CuSO₄ · 5H₂O = (1 * Cu) + (1 * S) + (4 * O) + (10 * H) + (5 * O)
Relative molecular mass of CuSO₄ · 5H₂O = (1 * 63.55 g/mol) + (1 * 32.06 g/mol) + (4 * 16.00 g/mol) + (10 * 1.01 g/mol) + (5 * 16.00 g/mol)
Relative molecular mass of CuSO₄ · 5H₂O = 63.55 g/mol + 32.06 g/mol + 64.00 g/mol + 10.10 g/mol + 80.00 g/mol
Relative molecular mass of CuSO₄ · 5H₂O = 249.71 g/mol

Therefore, the relative molecular mass of copper (II) sulfate pentahydrate (CuSO₄ · 5H₂O) is 249.71 g/mol.

[7/24, 6:05 AM] Neco Run’s: QUESTION CHEMISTRY (2)

Mass of silver deposited (in grams) = (Current in Amperes × Time in seconds × Atomic mass of silver) / (1 Faraday)

Current = 4.6 A
Time = 90 minutes = 90 × 60 seconds = 5400 seconds
Atomic mass of silver (Ag) = 108g/mol
1 Faraday = 96,500C
Substituting the values to calculate the mass of silver deposited:
Mass of silver deposited = (4.6 A × 5400 s × 108 g/mol) / 96,500 C
Mass of silver deposited ≈ (2,682,720 g·s/mol) / 96,500 C
Mass of silver deposited ≈ 27.8g
