The rate of a reaction A doubles on increasing the temperature from 300 to 310 K. By how much, the temperature of reaction B should be Increased from 300 K so that rate doubles if activation energy of the reaction B is twice to that of reaction A.
A
9.84 K
B
4.92 K
C
2.45 K
D
19.67 K

## Explanation

For reaction A, T1 = 300 K, T2 = 310 K, k2 = 2 k1

$\log {{{k_2}} \over {{k_1}}} = {{{E_{{a_1}}}} \over {2.303R}}\left[ {{1 \over {{T_1}}} - {1 \over {{T_2}}}} \right]$

$\therefore$ $\log {{2{k_1}} \over {{k_1}}} = \log 2 = {{{E_{{a_1}}}} \over {2.303R}}\left[ {{1 \over {300}} - {1 \over {310}}} \right]$ ...(1)

For reaction B, T1 = 300 K, T2 = ?, k2 = 2k1, Ea2 = 2Ea1

$\log {{2{k_1}} \over {{k_1}}} = \log 2 = {{2{E_{{a_1}}}} \over {2.303R}}\left[ {{1 \over {300}} - {1 \over {{T_2}}}} \right]$

From eq. (i) and (ii), we get

${{2{E_{{a_1}}}} \over {2.303R}}\left[ {{1 \over {300}} - {1 \over {{T_2}}}} \right] = {{{E_{{a_1}}}} \over {2.303R}}\left[ {{1 \over {300}} - {1 \over {310}}} \right]$

$\Rightarrow$ $2\left[ {{1 \over {300}} - {1 \over {{T_2}}}} \right] = \left[ {{1 \over {300}} - {1 \over {310}}} \right]$

$\Rightarrow$ T2 = ${{{300 \times 310} \over {610}}}$ $\times$ 2 = 304.92 K

$\therefore$ Increased temperature = (304.92 – 300) = 4.92 K

At 518oC the rate of decomposition of a sample of gaseous acetaldehyde initially at a pressure of 363 Torr, was 1.00 Torr s–1 when 5% had reacted and 0.5 Torr s–1 when 33% had reacted. The order of the reaction is
A
0
B
2
C
3
D
1

## Explanation

For a nth order reaction, the rate of reaction at time t ,

Rate = K [Pt] n

Here Pt = pressure at time t, k = constant.

Note :

Here instead of concentration of product, pressure of product is given.

When 5% is reacted at a rate 1 Toss S$-$1

Then un-reacted is 95%..

As initial pressure is 363 Torr

then after 5% reaction completed the pressure will be

= 363 $\times$ ${{95} \over {100}}$ Torr.

$\therefore\,\,\,$ 1 = K ${\left[ {363 \times {{95} \over {100}}} \right]^n}$ . . . . . . . .(1)

When 33% is reacted at a rate 0.5 , Torr S$-$1 then un-reacted is 67%

So, after 33% reaction completion, the pressure is = $363 \times {{67} \over {100}}$ Torr.

$\therefore\,\,\,$ 0.5 = K ${\left[ {363 \times {{67} \over {100}}} \right]^n}.......$ (2)

Dividing (1) by (2), we get

${1 \over {0.5}} = {{{{\left[ {363 \times {{95} \over {100}}} \right]}^n}} \over {{{\left[ {363 \times {{67} \over {100}}} \right]}^n}}}$

$\Rightarrow \,\,2 = {\left[ {{{95} \over {67}}} \right]^n}$

$\Rightarrow \,\,$ 2 = ${\left[ {1.41} \right]^n}$

$\Rightarrow \,\,$ 2 = ${\left[ {\sqrt 2 } \right]^n}$

$\Rightarrow \,\,\,\,2 = {2^{{n \over 2}}}$

$\therefore\,\,\,$ ${n \over 2}$ = 1

$\Rightarrow \,\,\,\,$ n = 2

This is a 2nd order reaction.

N2O5 decomposes to NO2 and O2 and follows first order kinetics. After 50 minutes, the pressure inside the vessel increases from 50 mmHg to 87.5 mmHg. The pressure of the gaseous mixture after 100 minute at constant temperature will be :
A
175.0 mmHg
B
116.25 mmHg
C
136.25 mmHg
D
106.25 mmHg

## Explanation

N2O5 $\rightleftharpoons$ 2NO2 + ${1 \over 2}$O2
At t = 0 50 0 0
At t = 50 min 50 $-$ P1 2P1 ${{{P_1}} \over 2}$

Total pressure after 50 min,

= 50 $-$ P1 + 2P1 + ${{{P_1}} \over 2}$ = 87.5

$\therefore\,\,\,$ 50 + ${{3{P_1}} \over 2}$ = 87.5

$\Rightarrow$ $\,\,\,$ P1 = 25

So, 50 min is the Half $-$ life period of the reaction.

Then 100 min is two half life

N2O5 $\rightleftharpoons$ 2NO2 + ${1 \over 2}$O2
At t = 100 min 50 $-$ P2 2P2 ${{{P_2}} \over 2}$

$\therefore\,\,\,$ 50 $-$ P2 = ${{25} \over 2}$

P2 = 37.5

$\therefore\,\,\,$ Total pressure at t = 100 min

= 50 $-$ P2 + 2P2 + ${{{P_2}} \over 2}$

= 50 + ${3 \over 2}$ $\times$ 37.5

= 106.25 mm of Hg
