Three thermochemical equations are given below
(i)  C(graphite) + O2(g) $$ \to $$ CO2(g); $$\Delta $$rHo = x kJ mol$$-$$1
(ii)  C(graphite) + $${1 \over 2}$$O2(g) $$ \to $$ CO(g); $$\Delta $$rHo = y kJ mol$$-$$1
(iii)  CO(g) + $${1 \over 2}$$O2(g) $$ \to $$ CO2(g); $$\Delta $$rHo = z kJ mol$$-$$1
Based on the above equations, find out which of the relationship given below is correct.
A
z = x + y
B
x = y + z
C
y = 2z $$-$$ x
D
x = y $$-$$ z

Explanation

According to Hess's law, equation (i) is equal to equations (ii) + (iii)

NEET 2013 (Karnataka)

When 5 litres of a gas mixture of methane and propane is perfectly combusted at 0oC and 1 atmosphere, 16 litres of oxygen at the same temperature and pressure is consumed, The amount of heat released from this combustion in kJ ($$\Delta $$Hcomb. (CH4) = 890 kJ mol$$-$$1, $$\Delta $$Hcomb. (C3H8) = 2220 kJ mol$$-$$1) is
A
38
B
317
C
477
D
32

Explanation

CH4 + 2O2 $$ \to $$ CO2 + 2H2O

C3H8 + 5O2 $$ \to $$ 3CO2 + 4H2O

CH4 + C3H8 = $${5 \over {22.4}} = 0.22$$ moles.

$${O_2} = {{16} \over {22.4}} = 0.71$$ moles

$$2x + (0.22 \times x)5 = 0.71$$

x = 0.13

Heat liberated = 0.13 $$ \times $$ 890 + 0.09 $$ \times $$ 2220 = 316 kJ

NEET 2013

A reaction having equal energies of activation for forward and reverse reactions has
A
$$\Delta $$H = 0
B
$$\Delta $$H = $$\Delta $$G = $$\Delta $$S = 0
C
$$\Delta $$S = 0
D
$$\Delta $$G = 0

Explanation

For a general reaction,

ΔH = Activation energy of forward reaction – Activation energy of backward reaction.

As, both the energies of activation have same value thus, ΔH = 0.

$$\Delta $$G is not equal to zero because if it is so the reaction must be in equilibrium which is not in this case

AIPMT 2012 Prelims

The enthalpy of fusion of water is 1.435 kcal/mol. The molar entropy change for the melting of ice at 0oC is
A
10.52 cal/(mol K)
B
21.04 cal/(mol K)
C
5.260 cal/(mol K)
D
0.526 cal/(mol K)

Explanation

H2O($$l$$) → H2O(s)

∆H = 1.435 Kcal/mol

T = 0 + 273K = 273K

$$\Delta S = {{\Delta H} \over T}$$

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\Delta S = {{1.435} \over {273}}$$ = 5.26 $$ \times $$ 10-3 kcal/mol K

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\Delta S$$ = 5.260 cal/mol K
