What is the basicity of H3PO2 acid and why?
Basicity of H3PO2 depends on upon the number of ionizable -OH groups present in the molecule. That is the number of hydrogen attached to the electronegative atom oxygen.
H3PO2 has one ionizable –OH group, thus its basicity is 1.
The structure of H3PO2 is as follows:
A reaction is of second order with respect to a reactant. How is its rate affected if the concentration of the reactant is (i) doubled (ii) reduced to half?
Express the relation among cell constant, the resistance of the solution in the cell and conductivity of the solution. How is molar conductivity of a solution related to its conductivity?
The molar conductivity of a 1.5 M solution of an electrolyte is found to be 138.9S cm2mol-1. Calculate the conductivity of the conductivity of this solution.
Explain the role of each of the following:
(i) NaCN in the extraction of silver
(ii) SiO2 in the extraction of copper
Explain the following facts giving appropriate reason in each case:
(i) NF3 is an exothermic compound whereas NCl3 is not.
(ii) All the bonds in SF4 are not equivalent.
