4. Answer the following questions.
4.1 What is meant by molar volume of a gas? Mention two reasons for deviation of real gasses from the behaviour of ideal gases.
Ans: The volume occupied by one-gram molecule of any gaseous substance (elementary or compound) at a fixed temperature and pressure is known as Molar Volume.
Two reasons for the deviation of real gases from the behaviour of ideal gases:
(i) In the kinetic theory of gases, the gas molecules are considered as point particles of a very small dimension and their actual value is negligible compared to the volume of the container.
But actually, the gas molecules have a volume of their own although they are extremely small. Thus, the effective volume available to the molecules of the real gases for free movement is partly less than the volume of the container.
(ii) According to the kinetic theory of gases, the molecules of the gas do not experience intermolecular forces of attraction among them. But, at high pressure the gas molecules come closer to each other, as a result, an attractive force come into play among the molecules.
Thus, the molecules of real gas fall to exert the same pressure on the wall as exerted by the molecules of the ideal gas under ideal condition.
4.2 How many grams of Al is required to prepare 558g of Fe by the reduction of Fe2O3 With Al at high temperature? How many moles of Fe2O3 be required in the reaction? (F=55.8, Al=27, O=16)
Ans: Equation for the reaction (thermite process):
Fe2O3 + 2Al = Al2O3 + 2Fe
Aluminium – 26.98 g
Iron – 55.85 g
Iron(III) oxide, Fe2O3 – (55.85 X 2) + (16 X 3) = 111.70 + 48 = 159.7 g
Aluminium oxide, Al2O3 – (26.98 x 2) + (16 x 3 ) = 53.96 + 48 = 101.96 g
(1) To find the mass of aluminium required:
As per the equation, to produce 2 moles of iron, 2 moles of aluminium is required.
So, to get 1 mole of iron ((55.85 g), 1 mole of aluminium (26.98 g) will be required.
Amount of aluminium needed to get 558 g of iron = (558 x 26.98)/55.85 = 269.36 g (answer)
(2) To find the number of moles of iron(III) oxide:
Mass of iron to be produced = 558 g = 558/55.85 = 9.99 moles
As per the equation, 1 mole of Fe2O3 is required to get 2 moles of iron.
So, number of moles of Fe2O3 required to get 9.99 moles of iron = (9.99 x 1)/2 = 4.995 = 5 moles (answer).
(1) Mass of aluminium required = 269.36 g
(2) Number of moles of Fe2O3 required = 5 moles

4.4 What type of mirror is used by the dentists? Why a ray of light does not deviate as a result of refraction through a glass slab?

4.5 When an object is placed 20cm away from a convex lens, no image is obtained on either side of the lens. What is the focal length of the lens? If the refractive index of glass with respect to air is 1.5, what is the refractive index of air with respect to glass?
Ans: As there is no image formed at either side of the lens so there is only one condition that is the object is placed at the focus of the lens.
Focal length of the lens is 20cm.
Refractive index of air with respect to glass
=refractive index of air/refractive index of glass
Or, The length of an object is 5cm. An image of length 10cm is obtained when it is placed at distance of 2cm in front of a convex lens. What is the linear magnification and image distance?

In gamma radiation only energy is released and hence no new elemen is formed.
