CUSO4 —–> CU²+ SO²-4
CU²+ + 2e ——> CU
1 Faraday will deposit 64/2 grams of copper
0.1 Faraday will deposit
= 64/2 × 1/10
= 3.2grams

A. Over head cables
B. Duralumin
C. Container for caustic soda
D. Container for nitric soda ✔️

11.The approximate volume of air containing 10cm³ of oxygen is ?
A. 20cm³
B. 25cm³
C. 50cm³ ✔️
D. 100cm³
E. 10cm³
SOLUTION : 1 volume of oxygen = 2 × 10

16.What mass of water is produced when 8.0g of hydrogen reacts with excess oxygen ? [H=1 , O = 16 ]
A. 36.0g
B. 8.0g
C. 72.0g ✔️
D. 16.0g
E. 18.0g


2H² + O² ——-> 2H²O
From the equation
4g of Hydrogen produces 36g of water
8g of Hydrogen will produce Xg of water ( H20 )
>> 4g = 36g
8g = Xg. ( Cross multiply )
36 × 8 / 4.
= 72g of H²O

21.How many grams of bromine will be required to completely react with 10g of propyne ?[ C = 12 , H = 1 , Br =80]
A. 20g
B. 40g
C. 60g
D. 80g ✔️


C³H⁴ + 2Br² ——> CHBr²CBr²CH³

Propyne + Bromine
Propyne = 12×3 + 1×4
= 36+4 = 40g of propyne ( C³H⁴ )
Bromine = 2 [ 80 × 2 ]
= 2 [160 ]
= 320g of Bromine ( 2Br² )

.°. 40g of propyne reacts with 320g of Bromine
10g of propyne reacts with = 10×320 / 40
= 80g (D)
