An increase in equivalent conductance of a strong electrolyte with dilution is mainly due to
A
increase in ionic mobility of ions
B
100% ionisation of electrolyte at normal dilution
C
increase in both i.e., number of ions and ionic mobility of ions
D
increase in number of ions.

Explanation

Dilution of strong electrolytes increases ionisation, hence ionic mobility of ions increases which in turn increases equivalent conductance of the solution.

For the reduction of silver ions with copper metal, the standard cell potential was found to be + 0.46 V at 25oC. The value of standard Gibb's energy, $$\Delta $$Go will be
(F = 96500 C mol$$-$$1)
A
$$-$$ 89.0 kJ
B
$$-$$ 89.0 J
C
$$-$$ 44.5 kJ
D
$$-$$ 98.0 kJ

Explanation

The cell reaction

Cu + 2Ag+ $$ \to $$ Cu2+ + 2Ag

We know, $$\Delta $$G° = – nFE°cell

= – 2 × 96500 × 0.46 = – 88780 J

= – 88.780 kJ = – 89 kJ

A
$$2\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$Al3+   +   $$3\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$so$$_4^{2 - }$$
B
$$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$Al3+   +   $$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$so$$_4^{2 - }$$
C
($$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$Al3+   +   $$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$so$$_4^{2 - }$$) $$ \times $$ 6
D
$${1 \over 3}$$$$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$Al3+   +   $${1 \over 2}$$$$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$so$$_4^{2 - }$$

Explanation

Equivalent conductance of an electrolyte at infinite dilution is given by the sum of equivalent conductances of the respective ions at infinite dilution.

Consider the following relations for emf of an electrochemical cell
(i)   EMF of cell = (Oxidation potential of anode) $$-$$ (Reduction potential of cathode)
(ii)  EMF of cell = (Oxidation potential of anode) + (Reduction potential of cathode)
(iii) EMF of cell = (Reductional potential of anode) + (Reduction potential of cathode)
(iv) EMF of cell = (Oxidation potential of anode) $$-$$ (Oxidation potential of cathode)

Which of the above relations are correct?
A
(iii) and (i)
B
(i) and (ii)
C
(iii) and (iv)
D
(ii) and (iv)

Explanation

EMF of a cell = Reduction potential of cathode – Reduction potential of anode

= Reduction potential of cathode + Oxidation potential of anode

= Oxidation potential of anode – Oxidation potential of cathode.
