Q1- In a reaction, 5.3 g of sodium – carbonate reacted with 6 g of ethanoic acid. The products were 2.2 g of carbon oxide. 0.9 g of water and 8.2 g of sodium ethanoate. Show that these observations are in agreement with the law of conservation of mass.
Sodium carbonate +ethanoic acid →sodium ethanoate +carbon dioxide +water
Ans-The mass of reactants = mass of Sodium carbonate + mass of ethanoic acid
= 5.3 g + 6 g = 11.3 g
Mass of products formed = mass of sodium ethanoate + mass of carbon dioxide + mass of water
= 2.2 g + 0.9 g + 8.2 g
So, observations are in agreement with the law of conservation of mass because in this chemical reaction the observation follows the law of conservation of mass as mentioned below.
Mass of reactants = Mass of products
Q2- Hydrogen and oxygen combine in the ratio of 1:8 by mass to form water. What mass of oxygen gas would be required to react completely with 3 g of hydrogen gas?
Ans-According to the law of constant proportion all the elements in a compound are always in the fixed ratio,so let 3 g of hydrogen reacts with X grams of oxygen.
(1/8 ) = 3/X
So, 24 g oxygen will be required to react with 3 g of hydrogen in the formation of water.
Q3- Which postulate of Dalton’s atomic theory is the result of the law of conservation of mass?
Ans-2 nd postulate of Dalton’s atomic theory is the result of the law of conservation of mass because it states that atoms are indivisible particles, which can not be created or destroyed in a chemical reaction.
Q4- Which postulate of Dalton’s atomic theory can explain the law of definite proportions?
Ans- 6 th postulate of Dalton’s theory explains the law of definite proportions because it states that relative number and kinds of atoms are constant in a given compound.

(i) Al2(SO4)3 – Aluminium sulphate
(ii) CaCl2 – Calcium chloride
(iii) K2SO4 – Potassium sulphate

Q7-What is meant by the term chemical formula?
Ans-Chemical formula of a compound shows what is its composition, from the chemical formula we get the combining capacity of each atom which is known as valency. The
way of writing chemical formula is i.e aluminium sulphate.
Valancy of aluminium 3 means it has capacity to hold 3 ions of sulphate and sulphate
has the charge 2 has capacity to hold 2 aluminium atoms.
So its chemical formula will be – Al2(SO4)3
Q9-How many atoms are present in a
(i) H2S molecule and
(ii) PO43- ions
(i)In H2S, Atoms of H =2, sulphur atom =1, so total atoms = 3
(ii) In PO43- ions, phosphorus atom = 1, oxygen atoms= 4, total atoms = 5
Q10-Calculate the molecular masses of H2, O2, Cl2, CO2, CH4, C2H6, NH3, CH3OH .
Ans-Molecular masses of the given substances are as follows.
H2 – 2 X 1 = 2 u
O2 – 2 X 16 = 32 u
Cl2 – 2 x 35 = 70 u
CO2 – 12 + 2 x 16 = 12 +32 = 44 u
CH4 – 12 + 4 x 1 = 12 + 4 = 16 u
C2H4 – 2 x 12 + 4 x 1 = 24 + 4 = 28 u
NH3 – 14 + 3 x 1 = 14 +3 = 17 u
CH3OH – 12 + 3 x 1 + 16 + 1 = 32 u
Q11-Calculate the formula unit masses of ZnO, Na2O, K2CO3.(given atomic masses of
Zn = 65 u, Na = 23 u, K = 39 u, C = 12 u and O = 16 u).
Ans-ZnO – 65 + 16 = 81 u
Na2O – 23 x 2 + 16 =62 u
K2CO3 – 39 x 2 + 12 + 16x 3 = 138 u
Q12-If one mole of carbon atoms weighs 12 grams. What is the mass (in grams) of 1 atom of carbon ?
Ans- 1 mole of carbon atoms = 6.022 x 1023 atoms
6.022 x 1023 atoms weighs = 12 grams
So 1 atom of carbon will weigh =12/(6.022 x 1023)
= 1.99 x 10-23 gram
Q13-Which has more number of atoms. 1OO grams of sodium or 100 grams of iron (given atomic mass of Na = 23 u, Fe = 56 u) ?
Number of Na atoms
= (given mass of Na/molar mass of Na)x N0
atomic mass of Na = 23 u, so molar mass of Na= 23 g
given mass of Na = 100 g
N0 = 6.022 x 1023
Number of Na atoms = (100/23) x6.022 x 1023
= 2.62 x 1024
On the same way number of iron atoms in 100 g of iron = (100/56) x 6.022 x 1023
= 1.08 x 1024
In 100 g of iron and sodium number of Na atoms are more than the number of Fe atoms.
Q14. A 0.24 g sample of compound oxygen and boron was found by analysis to contain 0.096 g of boron and 0.144 g of oxygen. Calculate the percentage composition of the compound by weight.
% of boron in the compound
= (quantity of boron )/(mass of sample)x 100
=( 0.096/0.24) x 100
= 40 %
Similarly % of oxygen = (0.144/0.24) x 100
= 60 %
Q15. When 3.0 g of carbon is burnt in 8.00 g oxygen. 11.00 g of carbon dioxide is produced. What mass of carbon dioxide will be formed when 3.00 g of carbon is burnt in 50.00 g of oxygen ? Which law of chemical combination will govern your answer ?
Ans.If 3.0 g of carbon is burnt in 8.00 g oxygen as a result of 11 g of carbon dioxide is formed. According to law of constant proportion, all elements are in fixed proportion in a compound.So 3.00 g of carbon will react only with 8 g of oxygen and rest of the oxygen 50 – 8 = 42 mg will be freed or unreacted, So hear law of definite proportion is followed.
Q16 – What are polyatomic ions ? Give examples.

(d)Molecular mass of HCl = 1 + 35 = 36 u
Molar mass of HCl = 36 g
(e)Molecular mass of HNO3 = 1 + 14 + 16 x 3 =63 u

= its molar mass =14
Q20- Convert into mole.
(a)12 g of oxygen gas
(b)20 g of water
(c)22 g of carbon dioxide
(a)Molecular mass of oxygen gas, O2= 16 x2 = 32 u
Molar mass of O2 = 32 g
No. of moles in 12 g of O2 = m/M
Given mass of O2, m= 12 g
Molar mass of O2, M =32 g
So, no. of moles of O2 =12/32 = 0.375
(b) Molecular mass of water, H2O = 2×1 +16 =18 u
Molar mass of water, M = 18 g
Given mass , m= 20 g
No. of moles of water =m/M = 20/18 = 1.11
(C) Molecular mass of CO2 = 12 + 16 x 2 = 44 u
Molar mass of CO2, M =44 g
Given mass of CO2, m =22 g
No. of moles of CO2 = m/M = 22/44 = 0.5
Q21-What is the mass of :
(a)0.2 moles of oxygen atoms ?
(b)0.5 moles of water molecules ?
Atomic mass of oxygen = 16 u
So, molar mass (M )of ,O = 16 g
Given mass of O =m
No. of moles of O =m/M
0.2 = m/16
0.2 x 16 = m, m= 3.2 g
(b)Molecular mass of water, H2O = 18 u
Molar mass, M of water = 18 g
No. of moles of H2O = m/M
So, given mass, m = 0.5 x 18 = 9 g
Q22-Calculate the number of molecules of sulphur(S8) present in 16 g of solid sulphur.
Ans- Molecular mass of S8 = 8 x 32 =256 u
Molar mass ,M of S8 = 256 g
Given mass, m = 16 g
No. of molecules of sulphur = (m/M) x N0
N0 = 6.022 x 1023
No. of molecules of sulphur = (16/256) x 6.022 x 1023
= 0.376 x 1023
= 3.76 x 1022
Q23-Calculate the number of aluminium ions present in 0.051 g of aluminium oxide.
(HINT: The mass of an ion is the same as that of an atom of the same element. Atomic mass of Al =27 u)
Molecular mass of aluminium oxide ,Al2O3 = 27 x2 + 16 x 3 =54 + 48 = 102 u
Molar mass of aluminium oxide ,M= 102 g
No. of molecules of ,Al2O3 = (m/M) x6.022 x 1023
Given mass , m = 0.051 g
No. of molecules of ,Al2O3 = (0.051/102) x6.022 x 1023
= 0.0030 x 1023
=3.0 x 1020
No. of ions in Al2O3 = no. of atoms Al2O3 = 2
So,total number of ions present in 0.051 g of Al2O3
= 3.0 x 2 x 1020
= 6 x 1020
