SECTION – B (HSC Chemistry Board Paper Solution 2020)

Q3. State and explain Hess’s law of constant heat summation.

Answer: The law states that the change in enthalpy for a reaction is the same whether the raction takes place in one or
series of steps./ The enthalpy change for a chemical reaction is the same regardless of the path by which reaction occurs.

The conversion of A ->C can directly takes place in one step

A –> C ΔH0 = ΔH1

The reaction can also takes place in two different steps

Step 1 A -> B ΔH0 = ΔH2

Step 2 B -> C ΔH0 = ΔH3

Overall A -> C ΔH0 = ΔH2 + ΔH


Q5). Distinguish between order and molecularity of a reaction.

It is the sum of powers of the concentrations in the rate law expressionsIt is the number of molecules of the reactants taking part in elementary reaction.
It is an experimentally determined value.It is a theoretical concept.
Order corresponds to the overall reaction.Molecularity is for elementary reaction.
It can have fractional value.It is always a whole number.

Q6). Write two uses of each of the follwing

  1. Helium
  2. Neon

Answer: Uses of Helium-

i) It is used for filling balloons and air ships as it is light and non combustible.

ii) It is used in producing inert in metallurgical operations and welding of metals.

Neon Uses-:

i) It is also used in television sets, spark plug, warning signals etc.
ii) It is also used in safety devices, electrical instruments like voltage stabilizer and rectifier’s

Q7). Write the name and chemical formulae of one ore of zinc.? Define Quaternary ammonium salt.

Answer: Zinc belnde ZnS, calamine ZnCO3, Zincite ZnO, willemite ZnSO4.

Tetraalkylammonium halide are called quaternary ammonium salt.

Q9) .

The property or phenomenon of certain organic substances to rotate the plane of plane polarized light towards right(clockwise) or left(anti-clockwise) through certain angle is called optical activity.

Number of optical isomer of glucose is 24 = 16. As glucose has 4 asymmetric carbon atom.

Q 10)

q10 chem paper sol hsc

As per the reaction above

Sulphuric acid regenerated in the second step is reused in the first step. Thus the small amount of sulphuric acid converts a large amount of ethyl alcohol into diethyl ether and the process becomes continuous. Hence it is called a continuous etherification process.
