Given,

Question 20.
What are the characteristics of the following colloids? Give one example of each. [3]
(i) Multimolecular colloids
(ii) Lyophobic sols
(iii) Emulsions.
(i) On dissolution, a large number of atoms or molecules of a substance aggregate to form colloidal particles. This colloid is called a multimolecular colloid, e.g. Sulphur sol.

(ii) The colloids in which there is no affinity between the particles of dispersed phase and dispersion medium are called lyophobic colloids. They are not stable, that is easily coagulated and irreversible. They are produced only by special methods, eg. AS2S3 sol, Fe(OH)3 sol.

(iii) Emulsions are colloids in which both dispersed phase and dispersing medium are liquid and immiscible with each other eg. Milk, cod liver oil, etc.

Question 21.
Give reasons for the following: [3]
(i) When R is an alkyl group R3P = 0 exist but R3N = 0 doesn’t.
(ii) PbCl4 is more covalent than PbCl2.
(iii) N2 is much less reactive at room temperature.
(i) Due to the absence of d-orbitals, N cannot form pπ-dπ multiple bonds. Thus, it cannot expand its covalency beyond 4. In R3N = 0, N has covalency 5 so it does not exist. On the other hand, due to the presence of d-orbitals, P forms pπ-dπ multiple bonds and expand its covalency beyond 4. In R3P = 0 covalency of P is 5 hence it exists.

(ii) Because ‘Pb’ is in +4 oxidation state in PbCl4 and has high charge/size ratio than Pb2+. According to Fazan’s rule, a higher charge on cation or anion makes compound more covalent, +4 state is more stable than +2 state. Hence PbCl4 is more covalent than PbCl2

In octahedral complexes, the d-orbitals split into two sets, one with two orbitals of high energy (t2g) and three orbitals with lower energy (eg). The difference in energy levels of these sets is the crystal field splitting energy.

(i) When ∆0 > P, an electronic configuration is t2g4 eg0

(ii) When ∆0 < P, electronic configuration is t32ge1g

Question 23.
Give reasons for the following:
(i) Ethyl iodide undergoes SN2 reaction faster than ethyl bromide.
(ii) (±) 2-Butanol is optically inactive.
(iii) C-X bond length in halobenzene is smaller than C-X bond length in CH3-X.
(i) I ion is better-leaving group than Br ion, therefore, ethyl iodide reacts faster than ethyl bromide in an SN2 reaction.

(ii) (+) 2-butanol is optically inactive because it is racemic mixture i.e. it has enantiomers in equal amount and hence they cancel each other’s rotation of plane polarised light.

(iii) In halobenzene, the halogen atom is attached to sp3 hybridized carbon while in CH3-X sp2 hybridized carbon which is smaller in size than sp3 hybridized carbon attached to the halogen. Therefore C-X bond in halobenzene is shorter than in CH3-X.

0.2% phenol, 1% phenol

(ii) Soap gets precipitated in hard water hence it can’t be used to wash clothes. On the other hand, synthetic detergents do not precipitate in hard water because its calcium salt is soluble in water. Therefore, it can be used to wash clothes in hard water.

(iii) 0.2% phenol.

Question 26.

(i) Mn+3 has electronic configuration 3d4 40. It gains one electron on reduction and become 3d540 which is a half-filled stable configuration. Hence it is a good oxidizing agent.

(ii) Due to extra stability of half and fully filled d-orbitals and variations in ionization energies E0M2+/M values are not regular.

(iii) Due to the ability of oxygen to form multiple bonds with metals and because oxygen stabilizes the highest oxidation state even more than fluorine.

OR

OR

(b) Which acid of each pair shown here would you expect to be stronger?

(b) (i) F-CH2-COOH is a stronger add than Cl-CH2-COOH because F is more electronegative than Cl, so it will favour the release of H+ ion faster by dragging electron density towards itself more as compared to Cl.
(ii) Acetic acid CH3COOH is a stronger acid than phenol. Acetic acid forms carboxylate ion and phenol forms phenoxide ion. Carboxylate ion is more stable than phenoxide ion due to resonance.

(i) Oxygen is gas but sulphur is solid.
(ii) O3 acts as a powerful oxidising agent.
(iii) BiH3 is the strongest reducing agent amongst all the hydrides of Group 15 elements.
(i) Oxygen is smaller in size than sulphur. Due to small size, it can effectively form pπ-pπ bonds and forms diatomic O2 molecule. The intermolecular forces in oxygen are weak van der Waals forces, which causes it to exists as a gas. On the other hand, sulphur does not form strong S=S double bonds and exists as a puckered structure held together by covalent bonds and exists as a polyatomic molecule. So, it exists as solid.

(ii) O3 act as a powerful oxidising agent because it decomposes to give nascent oxygen.
