AIPMT 2012 Mains

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Standard reduction potentials of the half reactions are given below :
F2(g) + 2e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ 2F$$-$$(aq) ;   Eo = + 2.85 V
Cl2(g) + 2e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ 2Cl$$-$$(aq) ;   Eo = + 1.36 V
Br2(l) + 2e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ 2Br$$-$$(aq) ;   Eo = + 1.06 V
I2(s) + 2e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ 2I$$-$$(aq) ;  Eo = + 0.53 V

The strongest oxidising and reducing agents 23 respectively are
A
F2 and I$$-$$
B
Br2 and Cl$$-$$
C
Cl2 and Br$$-$$
D
Cl2 and I2

Explanation

Higher the value of reduction potential higher will be the oxidising power whereas the lower the value of reduction potential higher will be the reducing power.

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
Limiting molar conductivity of NH4OH
$$\left[ {} \right.$$i.e.  $$\Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}OH} \right)}^0$$$$\left. {} \right]$$ is equal to
A
$$\Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}OH} \right)}^0 + \Lambda _{m\left( {NaCl} \right)}^0 - \Lambda _{m\left( {NaOH} \right)}^0$$
B
$$\Lambda _{m\left( {NaOH} \right)}^0 + \Lambda _{m\left( {NaCl} \right)}^0 - \Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}Cl} \right)}^0$$
C
$$\Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}OH} \right)}^0 + \Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}Cl} \right)}^0 - \Lambda _{m\left( {HCl} \right)}^0$$
D
$$\Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}Cl} \right)}^0 + \Lambda _{m\left( {NaOH} \right)}^0 - \Lambda _{m\left( {NaCl} \right)}^0$$

Explanation

According to Kohlrausch’s law, the molar conductivity of NH4OH

$$\Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}OH} \right)}^0$$ = $$\Lambda _{m\left( {N{H_4}Cl} \right)}^0 + \Lambda _{m\left( {NaOH} \right)}^0 - \Lambda _{m\left( {NaCl} \right)}^0$$

AIPMT 2011 Mains

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
A solution contains Fe2+, Fe3+ and I$$-$$ ions. This solution was treated with iodine at 35oC. Eo for Fe3+/Fe2+ is + 0.77 V and Eo for I2/2I$$-$$ = 0.536 V.
The favourable redox reaction is
A
I2 will be reduced to I$$-$$
B
there will be no redox reaction
C
I$$-$$ will be oxidised to I2
D
Fe2+ will be oxidised to Fe3+

Explanation

Since the reduction potential of Fe3+/Fe2+ is greater than that of I2 /I , Fe3+ will be reduced and I will be oxidised.

2Fe3+ + 2I $$ \to $$ 2Fe2+ + I2

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
The electrode potentials for Cu2+(aq) + e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ Cu+(aq)
and Cu+(aq) + e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ Cu(s) are + 0.15 V and + 0.50 V respectively.

The value of Eocu2+/cu will be
A
0.500 V
B
0.325 V
C
0.650 V
D
0.150 V

Explanation

Cu2+(aq) + e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ Cu+(aq) ; E1o = 0.15 V

Cu+(aq) + e$$-$$ $$ \to $$ Cu(s) ; E2o = 0.50 V

Cu2+ + 2e $$ \to $$ Cu ; Eo = ?

$$\Delta $$Go = $$\Delta $$G1° + $$\Delta $$G2°

$$ \Rightarrow $$ – nFE° = – n1FE1° – n2FE2°

$$ \Rightarrow $$ Eo = $${{1 \times 0.15 + 1 \times 0.50} \over 2}$$ = 0.325 V
