MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Standard electrode potential of three metals X, Y and Z are $$-$$1.2 V, + 0.5 V and $$-$$ 3.0 V respectively. The reducing power of these metals will be
A
Y > Z > X
B
Y > X > Z
C
Z > X > Y
D
X > Y > Z

Explanation

As the electrode potential drops, reducing power increases.

So, Z (–3.0 V) > X (–1.2 V) > Y (+ 0.5 V)

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
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.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
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

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Which of the following expressions correctly represents the equivalent conductance at infinite diluation of Al2(SO4)3. Given that $$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$Al3+ and $$\mathop \Lambda \limits^ \circ $$so$$_4^{2 - }$$ are the equivalent conductances at infinite dilution of the respective ions?
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.
