Specific volume of cylinfrical virus particle is 6.02 $\times$ 10$-$2 cc/g whose radius and length are 7 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$ and 10 $\mathop A\limits^ \circ$ respectively. If NA = 6.02 $\times$ 1023, find molecular weight of virus.
A
15.4 kg/mol
B
1.54 $\times$ 104 kg/mol
C
3.08 $\times$ 104 kg/mol
D
3.08 $\times$ 103 kg/mol

## Explanation

Specific volume ( vol. of 1 g) cylindrical virus particle

= 6.02 $\times$ 10-2 cc/g

Radius of virus, r = 7 Å = 7 $\times$ 10-8 cm

Volume of virus = $\pi {r^2}l$

= ${{22} \over 7} \times (7 \times {10^{ - 8}}) \times 10 \times {10^{ - 8}}$

= 154 $\times$ 10-23 cc

wt. of one virus particle = ${{Volume} \over {Specific\,\,Volume}}$

$\Rightarrow$ ${{1.54 \times {{10}^{ - 23}}} \over {6.02 \times {{10}^{ - 2}}}}g$

$\therefore$ Molecular wt of virus = wt. of NA particle

= ${{1.54 \times {{10}^{ - 23}}} \over {6.02 \times {{10}^{ - 2}}}} \times 6.02 \times 10^{-23} \,\,g/mol$

= 15400 g/mol = 15.4 kg/mol

Percentage of Se in peroxidase anhydrous enzyme is 0.5% by weight (at. wt. = 78.4) then minimum molecular weight of peroxide anhydrous enzyme is
A
1.568 $\times$ 104
B
1.568 $\times$ 103
C
15.68
D
2.136 $\times$ 104

## Explanation

${{100} \over {0.5}} \times 78.4 = 1.568 \times {10^4}$

Molarity of liquid HCl, if density of solution is 1.17 g/ce is
A
36.5
B
18.25
C
32.05
D
42.10

## Explanation

Molarity = ${{1.17 \times 1000} \over {36.5 \times 1}} = 32.05$

Oxidation numbers of A, B, C are + 2, +5 and $-$2 respectively. Possible formula of compound is
A
A2(BC2)2
B
A3(BC4)2
C
A2(BC3)2
D
A3(B2C)2

## Explanation

In A3(BC4)2, (+2) $\times$ 3 + 2[+5+4(-2)]

$\Rightarrow$ +6 + 10 -16 = 0

$\therefore$ Oxidation numbers of A, B, C are + 2, +5 and $-$2 respectively.
