State:
(a) Gay-Lussac's law of combining volumes
(b) Avogadro's law

Solution 2

(a) Gay-Lussac's law: It states that 'when gases react, they do so in volumes which bear a simple ratio to one another, and also to the volume of the gaseous product, provided all the volumes are measured at the same temperature and pressure'.
(b) Avogadro's law : It states that 'Under the same conditions of temperature and pressure, equal volumes of all gases contain the same number of molecules'.

Question 6

(a) Propane burns in air according to the following equation :

C3H8 + 5O2 3CO2 + 4H2O

What volume of propane is consumed on using 1000 cm3of air, considering only 20% of air contains oxygen?

 

(b) The mass of 11.2 litres of a certain gas at s.t.p is 24 g. Find gram molecular mass of the gas

Solution 6

(a)  

 Given:

C3H8 + 5O2 3CO2 + 4H2O

Volume of air = 1000 cm3

Percentage of oxygen in air = 20%

From the given information,

 

According to Gay-Lussac's law,

1 vol. of propane consumes 5 vol. of oxygen.

Volume of oxygen = 1000 cm3 × 20% = 200 cm3

 

Therefore,

Volume of propane burnt for every 200 cm3 of oxygen,

40 cm3of propane is burnt. 

 

(b)  

(i) Given:

 Volume of gas at STP = 11.2 litres

Mass of gas at STP = 24 g

Gram molecular mass = ?

Mass of 22.4 L of a gas at STP is equal to its gram

molecular mass.

 

11.2 L of the gas at STP weighs 24 g

So,

22.4 L of the gas will weigh

Gram molecular mass = 48 g 

Question 7

A gas cylinder can hold 1 kg of hydrogen at room temperature and pressure.

(a) Find the number of moles of hydrogen present

(b) What weight of CO2can the cylinder hold under similar conditions of temperature and pressure? (H = 1 C = 12, O = 16)

(c) If the number of molecules of hydrogen in the cylinder is X, calculate the number of CO2 molecules in the cylinder with the same conditions of temperature and pressure.

(d) State the law that helped you to arrive at the above result

Solution 7

(a)  

 Given:

Mass of hydrogen = 1 kg at 298 K and 1 atm pressure

 Moles of hydrogen =?

  

(b) Molecular mass of CO2 = 12 + 2 × 16 = 44g

So, vapour density (VD) = mol. Mass/2 = 44/2 = 22

 

(c) According to Avogadro's law, equal volumes of all gases under similar conditions of temperature and pressure contain equal number of molecules.

 

(d) So, number of molecules of carbon dioxide in the cylinder = number of molecules of hydrogen in the cylinder = X
