**Selina ICSE Solutions for Class 10 Chemistry Chapter 5 Mole Concept and Stoichiometry**

**Exercise 5(A)**

**Solution 1.**

(a) Gay-Lussac’s law states that when gases react, they do so in volumes which bear a simple ratio to one another, and to the volume of the gaseous product, provided that all the volumes are measured at the same temperature and pressure.

(b) Avogadro’s law states that equal volumes of all gases under similar conditions of temperature and pressure contain the same number of molecules.

**Solution 2.**

a) The number of atoms in a molecule of an element is called its atomicity. Atomicity of Hydrogen is 2, phosphorus is 4 and sulphur is 8.

b) N_{2}means 1 molecule of nitrogen and 2N means two atoms of nitrogen.

N_{2} can exist independently but 2N cannot exist independently.

**Solution 3.**

(a) This is due to Avogadros Law which states Equal volumes of all gases under similar conditions of temperature and pressure contain the same number of molecules.

Now volume of hydrogen gas =volume of helium gas

n molecules of hydrogen =n molecules of helium gas

nH_{2}=nHe

1 mol. of hydrogen has 2 atoms of hydrogen and I molecule of helium has 1 atom of helium

Therefore 2H=He

Therefore atoms in hydrogen is double the atoms of helium.

(b) For a given volume of gas under given temperature and pressure, a change in any one of the variable i.e., pressure or temperature changes the volume.

(c) Inflating a balloon seems violating Boyles law as volume is increasing with increase in pressure. Since the mass of gas is also increasing.

**Solution 4.**

2H_{2 }+ O_{2} → 2H_{2}O

2 V 1V 2V

From the equation, 2V of hydrogen reacts with 1V of oxygen

so 200cm^{3} of Hydrogen reacts with = 200/2= 100 cm^{3 }Hence, the unreacted oxygen is 150 – 100 = 50cm^{3 }of oxygen.

**Solution 5.**

**Solution 6.**

**Solution 7.**

**Solution 8.**

**Solution 9.**

**Solution 10.**

**Solution 11.**

C_{3}H_{8 }+ 5O_{2} → 3CO_{2} + 4H_{2}O

1 V 5 V 3 V

From equation, 5 V of O_{2} required = 1V of propane

so, 100 cm^{3} of O_{2 }will require = 20 cm^{3} of propane

**Solution 12.**

**Solution 13.**

2CO + O_{2} → 2CO_{2 }2 V 1 V 2 V

2 V of CO requires = 1V of O_{2 }so, 100 litres of CO requires = 50 litre of O_{2}

**Solution 14.**

**Solution 15.**

H_{2} + Cl_{2 }→ 2HCl

1V 1V 2 V

Since 1 V hydrogen requires 1 V of oxygen and 4cm^{3} of H_{2} remained behind so the mixture had com”>16 cm^{3} hydrogen and 16 cm^{3 }chlorine.

Therefore Resulting mixture is H_{2} =4cm^{3},HCl=32cm^{3}

**Solution 16.**

CH_{4} + 2O_{2 }→ CO_{2} + 2H_{2}O

1 V 2 V 1 V

2C_{2}H_{2} + 5O_{2} → 4CO_{2} + 2H_{2}O

2 V 5 V 4 V

From the equations, we can see that

1V CH_{4} requires oxygen = 2 V O_{2 }So, 10cm^{3} CH_{4} will require =20 cm^{3} O_{2 }Similarly 2 V C_{2}H_{2} requires = 5 V O_{2 }So, 10 cm^{3} C_{2}H_{2 }will require_{ }= 25 cm^{3} O_{2 }Now, 20 V O_{2} will be present in 100 V air and 25 V O_{2} will be present in 125 V air ,so the volume of air required is 225cm^{3}

**Solution 17.**

**Solution 18.**

**Solution 19.**

This experiment supports Gay lussac’s law of combining volumes.

Since the unchanged or remaining O_{2} is 58 cc so, used oxygen 106 – 58 = 48cc

According to Gay lussac’s law, the volumes of gases reacting should be in a simple ratio.

CH_{4} + 2O_{2} → CO_{2} + 2H_{2}O

1 V 2 V

24 cc 48 cc

i.e. methane and oxygen react in a 1:2 ratio.

**Solution 19.**

According to Avogadro’s law, equal volumes of gases contain equal no. of molecules under similar conditions of temperature and pressure. This means more volume will contain more molecules and least volume will contain least molecules.

So,

(a) 5 litres of hydrogen has greatest no. of molecules with the maximum volume.

(b) 1 litre of SO_{2} contains the least number of molecules since it has the smallest volume.

**Solution 20.**

Gas | Volume (in litres) | Number of molecules |

Chlorine | 10 | x/2 |

Nitrogen | 20 | x |

Ammonia | 20 | X |

Sulphur dioxide | 5 | x/4 |

**Solution 21.**

**Exercise 5(B)**

**Solution 1.**

a) This statement means one atom of chlorine is 35.5 times heavier than 1/12 time of the mass of an atom C-12.

b) The value of avogadro’s number is 6.023 × 10^{23 }c) The molar volume of a gas at STP is 22.4 dm^{3 }at STP

**Solution 2.**

(a) The vapour density is the ratio between the masses of equal volumes of gas and hydrogen under the conditions of standard temperature and pressure.

(b) Molar volume is the volume occupied by one mole of the gas at STP. It is equal to 22.4 dm^{3}.

(c) The relative atomic mass of an element is the number of times one atom of the element is heavier than 1/12 times of the mass of an atom of carbon-12.

(d) The relative molecular mass of an compound is the number that represents how many times one moleculae of the substance is heavier than 1/12 of the mass of an atom of carbon-12.

(e) The number of atoms present in 12g (gram atomic mass) of C-12 isotope, i.e. 6.023 x10^{23} atoms.

(f) The quantity of the element which weighs equal to its gram atomic mass is called one gram atom of that element.

(g) Mole is the amount of a substance containing elementary particles like atoms, molecules or ions in 12 g of carbon-12.

**Solution 3.**

(a) Applications of Avogadro’s Law :

- It explains Gay-Lussac’s law.
- It determines atomicity of the gases.
- It determines the molecular formula of a gas.
- It determines the relation between molecular mass and vapour density.
- It gives the relationship between gram molecular mass and gram molecular volume.

(b) According to Avogadro’s law under the same conditions of temperature and pressure, equal volumes of different gases have the same number of molecules.

Since substances react in simple ratio by number of molecules, volumes of the gaseous reactants and products will also bear a simple ratio to one another.This what Gay Lussac’s Law says.

So, the weight of 1 mole of CO_{2} is more than the other three.

**Solution 7.**

**Solution 26.**

Given:

P= 1140 mm Hg

Density = D = 2.4 g / L

T = 273 ^{0}C = 273+273 = 546 K

M = ?

We know that, at STP, the volume of one mole of any gas is 22.4 L

Hence we have to find out the volume of the unknown gas at STP.

First apply Charle’s law.

We have to find out the volume of one liter of unknown gas at standard temperature 273 K.

V_{1}= 1 L T_{1} = 546 K

V_{2}=? T_{2} = 273 K

V_{1}/T_{1} = V_{2}/ T_{2 }V_{2} = (V_{1} x T_{2})/T_{1 } = (1 L x 273 K)/546 K

= 0.5 L

We have found out the volume at standard temperature. Now we have to find out the volume at standard pressure.

Apply Boyle’s law.

P _{1} = 1140 mm Hg V_{1} = 0.5 L

P_{2} = 760 mm Hg V_{2} = ?

P_{1} x V_{1 }= P_{2} x V_{2 }V_{2} = (P_{1} x V_{1})/P_{2 } = (1140 mm Hg x 0.5 L)/760 mm Hg

= 0.75 L

Now, 22.4 L is the volume of 1 mole of any gas at STP, then 0.75 L is the volume of X moles at STP

X moles = 0.75 L / 22.4 L

= 0.0335 moles

The original mass is 2.4 g

n = m / M

0.0335 moles = 2.4 g / M

M = 2.4 g / 0.0335 moles

M= 71.6 g / mole

Hence, the gram molecular mass of the unknown gas is 71.6 g

**Solution 32.**

V_{1}/V_{2} = n_{1}/n_{2 }So, no. of moles of Cl = x/2 (since V is directly proportional to n)

No. of moles of NH_{3} = x

No. of moles of SO_{2} = x/4

This is because of Avogadros law which states Equal volumes of all gases, under similar conditions of temperature and pressure, contain equal number of molecules.

So, 20 litre nitrogen contains x molecules

So, 10 litre of chlorine will contain = x × 10/20=x/2 mols.

And 20 litre of ammonia will also contain =x molecules

And 5 litre of sulphur dioxide will contain = x × 5/20 = x/4 mols.

**Solution 34.**

(a) Volume of O_{2} = V

Since O_{2 }and N_{2 }have same no. of molecules = x

so, the volume of N_{2 }= V

(b) 3x molecules means 3V volume of CO

(c) 32 g oxygen is contained in = 44 g of CO_{2 }So, 8 g oxygen is contained in = 44 x 8/32 = 11 g

(d) Avogadro’s law is used in the above questions.

**Solution 35.**

(a) 444 g is the molecular formula of (NH_{4})_{2 }PtCl_{6 }% of Pt = (195/444) x 100 = 43.91% or 44%

(b) simple ratio of Na = 42.1/23 = 1.83 = 3

simple ratio of P = 18.9/31 = 0.609 = 1

simple ratio of O = 39/16 = 2.43 = 4

So, the empirical formula is Na_{3}PO_{4}

**Solution 38.**

**Solution 39.**

**Solution 40.**

**Solution 41.**

(i) D contains the maximum number of molecules because volume is directly proportional to the number of molecules.

(ii) The volume will become double because volume is directly proportional to the no. of molecules at constant temperature and pressure.

V_{1}/V_{2} = n_{1}/n_{2 }V_{1}/V_{2} = n_{1}/2n_{1 }So, V_{2 }= 2V_{1}

(iii) Gay lussac’s law of combining volume is being observed.

(iv) The volume of D = 5.6 4 = 22.4 dm^{3}, so the number of molecules = 6 x 10^{23} because according to mole concept 22.4 litre volume at STP has = 6 x 10 ^{23} molecules

(v) No. of moles of D = 1 because volume is 22.4 litre

so, mass of N_{2}O = 1 44 = 44 g

3 x 80 g of CuO reacts with = 2 x 22.4 litre of NH_{3 }so, 120 g of CuO will react with = 2x 22.4 x 120/80 x 3

= 22.4 litres

**Solution 45.**

(a) The molecular mass of ethylene(C_{2}H_{4}) is 28 g

Empirical formula = CHCl_{2 }(ii) Empirical formula mass = 12+1+71= 84 g

Since molecular mass = 168 so, n = 2

so, molecular formula = (CHCl_{2})_{2} = C_{2}H_{2}Cl_{4}

(b) (i) C + 2H_{2}SO_{4} → CO_{2} + 2H_{2}O + 2SO_{2 }1 V 2 V 1 V 2 V

196 g of H_{2}SO_{4} is required to oxidized = 12 g C

So, 49 g will be required to oxidise = 49 x 12/196 = 3 g

(ii) 196 g of H_{2}SO_{4 }occupies volume = 2 x 22.4 litres

So, 49 g H_{2}SO_{4 }will occupy = 2 x 22.4 x 49/196 = 11.2 litre
