Unit of entropy is
A
J K$$-$$1 mol$$-$$1
B
J mol$$-$$1
C
J$$-$$1 K$$-$$1 mol$$-$$1
D
J K mol$$-$$1

Explanation

Entropy is the change in heat per degree. Thus, its unit is as follows.

Entropy = $${{Jmo{l^{ - 1}}} \over K}$$ = J mol-1 K-1

Enthalpy of CH4 + $${1 \over 2}$$ O2 $$ \to $$ CH3OH is negative. If enthalpy of combustion of CH4 and CH3OH are x and y respectively. Then which relation is correct?
A
x > y
B
x < y
C
x = y
D
x3 y

Explanation

CH4 + $${1 \over 2}$$ O2 $$ \to $$ CH3OH

Given that for this reaction, $$\Delta $$Hr = -ve

CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O,    $$\Delta $$H = x ....(1)

CH3OH + $${3 \over 2}$$ O2 → CO2 + 2H2O,    $$\Delta $$H = y ....(2)

Eqn. (1) – Eqn. (2)

CH4 + $${1 \over 2}$$ O2 $$ \to $$ CH3OH

$$\Delta $$Hr = x - y = -ve

$$ \therefore $$ x < y

PbO2  $$ \to $$ PbO; $$\Delta $$G298 < 0
SnO2 $$ \to $$ SnO;  $$\Delta $$G298 > 0

Most probable oxidation state of Pb and Sn will be
A
Pb4+, Sn4+
B
Pb4+, Sn2+
C
Pb2+, Sn2+
D
Pb2+, Sn4+

Explanation

PbO2 → PbO

Pb has +4 oxidation state In PbO2.

Pb has +2 oxidation state In PbO.

Here $$\Delta $$G is negative that is why reaction is spontaneous and Pb4+ reduces Pb2+ thus, Pb2+ is most probable oxidation state of Pb.

SnO2 $$ \to $$ SnO;

Sn has +4 oxidation state In SnO2.

Sn has +2 oxidation state In SnO.

$$\Delta $$G is positive that is why reaction is not spontaneous thus, +4 oxidation state of Sn is more stable as it does not change to +2 oxidation state spontaneously.

When 1 mol of gas is heated at constant volume temperature is raised from 298 to 308 K. Heat supplied to the gas is 500 J. Then which statement is correct ?
A
q = w = 500 J, $$\Delta $$E = 0
B
q = $$\Delta $$E = 500 J, w = 0
C
q = w = 500 J, $$\Delta $$E = 0
D
$$\Delta $$E = 0, q = w = $$-$$ 500 J

Explanation

As, $$\Delta $$E = q + W

Also, W = – p$$\Delta $$V

As $$\Delta $$V = 0

So, W = 0

$$ \Rightarrow $$ $$\Delta $$E = q

Now, q = 500 J

Thus, $$\Delta $$E = q = 500 J
