### NEET 2016 Phase 2

The number of electrons delivered at the cathode during electrolysis by a current of 1 ampere in 60 seconds is (charge on electron = 1.60 $\times$ 10$-$19C)
A
6 $\times$ 1023
B
6 $\times$ 1020
C
3.75 $\times$ 1020
D
7.48 $\times$ 1023

## Explanation

Q = I × t

Q = 1 × 60 = 60 C

Now, 1.60 × 10–19 C $\equiv$ 1 electron

$\therefore$ 60 C $\equiv$ ${{60} \over {1.6 \times {{10}^{ - 19}}}}$

= 3.75 $\times$ 1020 electrons

### NEET 2016 Phase 2

Zinc can be coated on iron to produce galvanized iron but the reverse is not possible. It is because
A
zinc is lighter than iron
B
zinc has lower melting point than iron
C
zinc has lower negative electrode potential than iron
D
zinc has higher negative electrode potential than iron

## Explanation

The reduction potential values are

Zn2+/Zn = – 0.76 V

Fe2+/Fe = – 0.44 V

Thus, due to higher negative electro potential value of zinc than iron, iron cannot be coated on zinc.

### NEET 2016 Phase 2

The molar conductivity of a 0.5 mol/dm3 solution of AgNO3 with electrolytic conductivity of 5.76 $\times$ 10$-$3 S cm$-$1 at 298 K is
A
2.88 S cm2/mol
B
11.52 S cm2/mol
C
0.086 S cm2/mol
D
28.8 S cm2/mol

## Explanation

${\Lambda _m} = {{\kappa \times 1000} \over {Molality}}$

= ${{5.76 \times {{10}^{ - 3}} \times 1000} \over {0.5}}$

= 11.52 S cm2/mol
