5. Equal weights of methane and oxygen are mixed in an empty container at 298 K. The fraction of total pressure exerted by oxygen is

(a) 1/3

(b) 1/2

(c) 2/3

(d) 1/3 × 273 × 298

Solution:

mass of methane

= mass of oxygen = a

number of moles of methane = a/16

number of moles of Oxygen = a/32

mole fraction of Oxygen =

=[a/32] / [{a/16} + {a/32{ ]

= [a/32] / [3a/32]

=1/32

Partial pressure of oxygen

= mole fraction Total Pressure

=1/3 P

a) Critical temperature

b) Boyle temperature

c) Inversion temperature

d) Reduced temperature

Solution:

The temperature at which real gases obey the ideal gas laws over a wide range of pressure is called Boyle temperature

7. In a closed room of 1000 m3 a perfume bottle is opened up. The room develops a smell. This is due to which property of gases?

c) Near the ammonia bottle

d) Throughout the length of the tube

Answer: b) Near the hydrogen chloride bottle

Solution:

Rate of diffusion α 1/√m

mNH3 = 17 ; mHCl = 36.5

γNH3 > γHCl

Hence white fumes first formed near hydrogen chloride

22. Assertion : Critical temperature of CO2 is 304K, it can be liquefied above 304K.

Reason : For a given mass of gas, volume is to directly proportional to pressure at constant temperature

a) both assertion and reason are true and reason is the correct explanation of asser-tion

b) both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of assertion

c) assertion is true but reason is false

d) both assertion and reason are false

Answer: d) both assertion and reason are false

Solution:

Correct Statement: Critical temperature of CO2 is 304 K. It means that CO2 cannot be liquefied above 304 K, whatever the pressure may applied.

Pressure is inversely proportional to volume

a) HBr

b) HCl

c) HF

d) HI

Solution:

At a given temperature and pressure

Volume α no. of moles

Volume α Mass / Molar mass

Volume α 28 / Molar mass

i.e. if molar mass is more, volume is less. Hence HI has the least volume
