Question 2.

The ionization enthalpy of hydrogen atom is 1.312 × 10^{6} J mol^{-1}. The energy required to excite the electron in the atom from n = 1 to n = 2 is

(a) 8.51 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

(b) 6.56 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

(c) 7.56 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

(d) 9.84 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

## Answer

Answer: (d) 9.84 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

Explanation:

Energy required when an electron makes transition from n = 1 to n = 2

E_{2}=−(1.312 × 10^{6} × (1)²)/(2²)

= −3.28 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

E_{1} = −1.312 × 10^{6} J mol^{-1}

ΔE = E_{2} − E_{1}

=−3.28 × 10^{5}−(−13.2 × 10^{6})

ΔE = 9.84×10^{5} J mol^{-1}

Question 3.

Question 4.

A gas absorbs a photon of 355 nm and emits at two wavelengths. If one of the emissions is at 680 nm, the other is at:

(a) 518 nm

(b) 1035 nm

(c) 325 nm

(d) 743 nm

## Answer

Answer: (d) 743 nm

Explanation:

From Law of Conservation of energy, energy of absorbed photon must be equal to combined energy of two emitted photons.

ET = E_{1} + E_{2} ….. (1)

Where E_{1} is Energy of first emitted photon emitted and E_{2}is Energy of second emitted photon.

Energy E and wavelength λ of a photon are related by the equation

E= (hc)/ (λ)….. (2)

Where Plancks constant = h, c is velocity of light.

Substituting the values from (2) in (1) we get

(hc/λ_{T}) = (hc)/ (λ_{1}) + (hc)/ (λ_{2})

Or (\(\frac{1}{λ_T}\)) = (\(\frac{1}{λ_1}\)) + (\(\frac{1}{λ_2}\)) …… (3)

Substituting given values in (3) we get

(\(\frac{1}{355}\)) = (\(\frac{1}{680}\)) + (\(\frac{1}{λ_2}\))

Or \(\frac{(1)}{(λ_T)}\) = (\(\frac{1}{355}\)) − (\(\frac{1}{680}\))

⇒ (\(\frac{1}{λ_2}\)) = (680 − 355)/ (355 × 680)

⇒ λ_{2} = 742.77nm

Isoelectronic species are those which have same number of electrons.

K^{+} = 19 – 1 = 18; Ca^{2+} = 20 – 2 = 18; Sc^{3+} = 21 – 3 = 18; Cl^{–} = 17 + 1 = 18

Thus all these ions have 18 electrons in them.

The element is chromium is Cr.

Question 11.

The electrons of the same orbitals can be distinguished by

(a) Principal quantum number

(b) Azimuthal quantum number

(c) Spin quantum number

(d) Magnetic quantum number

## Answer

Answer: (c) Spin quantum number

Explanation:

Electrons occupying the same orbital are distinguished by Spin quantum number.

For spin Quantum number it has two values +1/2 or -1/2,

Hence the value of n, l , m are same for the two electrons occupying in the same orbitals, but only the is different, which is

Therefore, Spin quantum number explains the direction through which the electron spins in an orbital. so obviously there are only 2 possible directions. Which is either clockwise or anticlockwise.

So the electron which are available in the same orbitals, must have opposite spins. Hence spin quantum number distinguished b/w the two electrons.

Question 12.

Consider the ground state of Cr atom (Z = 24). The numbers of electrons with the azimuthal quantum numbers, l = 1 and 2 are, respectively:

(a) 12 and 4

(b) 12 and 5

(c) 16 and 4

(d) 16 and 5

Explanation:

_{24}Cr → 1s^{2} 2s^{2}2p^{6} 3s^{2} 3p^{6} 3d^{5} 4s^{1}

As we know for p, l = 1 and d, l = 2

For l = 1, total number of electrons = 12 [2p^{6} and 3p^{6}]

For l = 2, total number of electrons = 5 [3d^{5}]

Question 13.

A body of mass 10 mg is moving with a velocity of 100 ms^{-1}. The wavelength of de-Broglie wave associated with it would be (Note: h = 6.63 × 10^{-34} Js)

(c) 6.63 × 10^{-34} m

(d) 6.63 × 10^{-35} m

## Answer

Answer: (b) 6.63 × 10^{-31} m

Explanation:

m = 10 mg

= 10 × 10^{-6} kg

v = 100 ms^{-1}

λ = \(\frac {(h)}{(mv)}\)

= (6.63×10^{-34})/ (10 × 10^{-6} × 100)

= 6.63 × 10^{-31} m

Question 14.

The ionization enthalpy of hydrogen atom is 1.312 × 10^{6 }J mol^{-1}. The energy required to excite the electron in the atom from n = 1 to n = 2 is

(b) 6.56 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

(c) 7.56 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

(d) 9.84 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

## Answer

Answer: (d) 9.84 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

Explanation:

Energy required when an electron makes transition from n = 1 to n = 2

E_{2} = −(1.312 × 10^{6} × (1)²)/(2²)

= −3.28 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

E_{1} = −1.312 × 10^{6} J mol^{-1}

ΔE = E_{2} − E_{1}

= −3.28 × 10^{5}−(−13.2 × 10^{6})

ΔE = 9.84 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

Question 15.

In Hydrogen atom, energy of first excited state is – 3.4 eV. Then find out KE of same orbit of Hydrogen atom

(a) 3.4 eV

(b) 6.8 eV

(c) -13.6 eV

(d) +13.6 eV

## Answer

Answer: (a) 3.4 eV

Explanation:

For hydrogen atom,

The kinetic energy is equal to the negative of the total energy.

And the potential energy is equal to the twice of the total energy.

The first excited state energy of orbital = -3.4 eV

and The kinetic energy of same orbital = -(-3.4 eV) = 3.4 eV

Therefore, the kinetic energy of same orbit of hydrogen atom is 3.4 eV.

Question 16.

Which of the following sets of quantum numbers represents the highest energy of an atom?

(a) n = 3, l = 0, m = 0, s = + \(\frac {1}{2}\)

## Answer

Answer: (c) n = 3, l = 2, m = 1, s = + \(\frac {1}{2}\)

Explanation:

n = 3, l = 0 represents 3s orbital n = 3, l = 1 represents 3p orbital n = 3, l = 2 represents 3d orbital n = 4, l = 0 represents 4s orbital The order of increasing energy of the orbitals is 3s < 3p < 4s < 3d.

In the Bohrs model of the hydrogen atom, the ratio of the kinetic energy to the total energy of the electron in a quantum state n is:

(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) -1

(d) -2

## Answer

Answer: (c) -1

Explanation:

As we know, in Bohr model KE of an electron in an orbit = + (\(\frac {1}{2}\)) (\(\frac {e^2}{r_n}\))

Total energy of electron in an orbit = -(\(\frac {e^2}{2r_n}\))

Therefore, \(\frac {(KE)}{(TE)}\) = -1

## Answer

Answer: (d) The position and velocity of the electrons in the orbit cannot be determined simultaneously

Explanation:

The position and velocity of electrons cannot be determined simultaneously does not fit in with the Bohrs model of H atom. It is a part of Heisenbergs uncertainty principle

(a) 12 electrons

(b) 36 electrons

(c) 10 electrons

(d) 72 electrons
