(3) The molecular masses can be measured more accurately. (4) Therefore, it is more useful to determine molecular masses of expensive substances by osmotic pressure.

3➤ Explain reverse osmosis. OR How can pure water be obtained from sea water?

=> Ans. Reverse osmosis: The phenomenon of the passage of solvent like water under high pressure from the concentrated aqueous solution like sea water into pure water through a semipermeable membrane is called reverse osmosis. The osmotic pressure of sea water is about 30 atmospheres. Hence, when pressure more than 30 atmospheres is applied on the solution side, regular osmosis stops and reverse osmosis starts. Hence pure water from sea water enters the other side of pure water. For this purpose, suitable semipermeable membrane is required which can withstand high pressure conditions over a long period. This method is used successfully in Florida since 1981 producing more than 10 million litres of pure water per day.

4➤ What are the applications of a buffer solution?

=> (1) In a biochemical system: Blood in our body has pH 7.36-7.42 due to (HCO + H₂CO,) and little change of 0.2 pH unit may be fatal. For example, saline solution used in intravenous injection contains a buffer solution maintaining pH of the blood in the required range. (2) Agriculture: The properties of soil depend upon its pH. The salts present in soil such as phosphates, carbonates, bicarbonates and organic acids impart definite pH to the soil. Depending on pH the fertilizers are selected.. (3) Industry: In many industries, buffer solutions are used to carry out chemical processes very effectively, such as the industries of paper, dye, paints, drugs, ink, etc. (4) Medicines : Many medicines particularly in the liquid state have a good stability and optimum activity at a definite pH, for which buffer solutions are used. For example, penciline preparations are carried out in the presence of a buffer of sodium citrate. A buffer solution of magnesium citrate is prepared by adding citric acid to Mg(OH)₂. (5) Analytical chemistry: In a qualitative analysis, the precipitation of groups, the chemical tests for detection of ions, etc. are carried out at a definite pH. For example, precipitation of cations of IIIA are carried in the presence of a basic buffer of pH 8-10 obtained by using NH,OH and NH Cl.

5➤ Explain the application of solubility product in the removal of hardness of water.

=> Ans. The hardness of water is due to presence of Ca²+ ions. It is surprising to know that Ca²+ ions can be removed by adding more Ca²+ ions in the form of lime Ca(OH),, to the hard water. The OH ions of lime react with HCO, ions present in the hard water to form CO ions. OH(aq) + HCO3(aq) →→ CO3(aq) + H₂O(1) Solubility product of CaCO, is very low (K-4.5 x 10 "). Addition of lime makes IP > >Ksp which results in the precipitation of CaCO, and thereby removal of hardness.

When an organic dye is added to the electrolyte, dye molecules soak forming spongy surface of coating and become trapped with the hardening of the metal oxide surface.

9➤ What are the applications of electrochemical series (or electromotive series)? (1 mark for each application)

=> Ans. The applications of electrochemical series (or electromotive series) are as follows: (1) Relative strength of oxidising agents in terms of Ered values : The Ered value is a measure of the tendency of the species to be reduced i.e., to accept electrons and act as an oxidising agent. The species mentioned on left hand side of the half reactions are oxidising agents. The substances in the upper positions in the series and hence in the upper left side of the half reactions have large positive Ered values hence are stronger oxidising agents. For example, F₂, Ce, Au, etc. As we move down the series, the oxidising power decreases. Hence from the position of the elements in the electrochemical series, oxidising agents can be selected. (2) Relative strength of reducing agents in terms of Ered values: The lower Ered value means lower tendency to accept electrons but higher tendency to lose electrons. The tendency for reverse reaction or oxidation increases as Ered becomes more negative (2) In the manufacture of dyes, fertilizers like ammonium sulphate, super phosphate, detergents. (3) As an electrolyte in lead storage battery. (4) As a dehydrating agent. (5) As an oxidising agent. (6) For refining petroleum.
