Why is it essential to wash the precipitate with water before estimating it quantitatively?

When a colloidal solution is prepared, quite often it contains certain impurities of electrolytes which are crystalloidal in nature and tend to destabilize the solution. Hence it is essential to wash the precipitate with water before estimating it quantitatively to remove impurities of electrolytes.

Why are substances like platinum and palladium often used for carrying out electrolysis of aqueous solutions?

The Plantium and palladium are used for electrolysis of aqueous solution due to the chemically inert in nature and good adsorptive capacity for hydrogen.
Because Gases like hydrogen are absorbed on the surface of platinum and palladium (adsorption) and then passes into the bulk of the adsorbent (platinum and palladium).

In Haber's process, hydrogen is obtained by reacting methane with steam in presence of NiO as catalyst. The process is known as steam reforming. Why is it necessary to remove CO when ammonia is obtained by Haber’s process?

Presence of CO in the synthesis of ammonia by Haber’s process adversely affects the activity of iron catalyst.

Why are powdered substances more effective adsorbents than their crystalline forms?

Powderded substance are more effective adsorbent than their crystalline forms because when a substance is powdered its surface area increase and physisorption is directly proportional to the surface area of adsorbent,

Why is the ester hydrolysis slow in the beginning and becomes faster after sometime?
