The ionic product of water is given by [H] [OH] = Kw = 1.0 × 10-14 at 298 K
Taking log on both sides, log10[H+] + log10[OH] = log10 Kw = log10 1.0 × 10 -14

Question 35.
(a) With neat labelled diagram , describe the estimation of nitrogen by Dumas method
1st PUC Chemistry Previous Year Question Paper March 2019 (South) - 12
Dumas method: The nitrogen containing organic compound, when heated with copper oxide in an atmosphere of carbon dioxide, yields free nitrogen in addition to carbon dioxide and water.
CxHyNz + (2x + y/2) CuO → x CO2 + y/2 H2O + z/2 N2 + (2x + y/2) Cu

Traces of nitrogen oxides formed, if any, are reduced to nitrogen by passing the gaseous mixture over a heated copper gauze. The mixture of gases so produced is collected over an aqueous solution of potassium hydroxide which absorbs carbon dioxide. Nitrogen is collected in the upper part of the graduated tube (Fig. 12.15).

Let the mass of organic compound = mg
Volume of nitrogen collected = V1mL
Room temperature = T1K
Volume of nitrogen at STP = \(\frac{\mathrm{p}_{1} \mathrm{V}_{1} \times 273}{760 \times \mathrm{T}_{1}}\) (Let it be V mL)

Where p1 and V1 are the pressure and volume of nitrogen, p1 is different from the atmospheric pressure at which nitrogen gas is collected. The value of p1 is obtained by the relation;
p1 = Atmospheric pressure – Aqueous tension
22400 mL N2 at STP weighs 28 g.
V mL N2 at STP weighs = \(\frac{28 \times \mathrm{V}}{22400} \mathrm{g} \)
Percentage of nitrogen = \(\frac{28 \times V \times 100}{22400 \times m}\)

Question 37.
(a) Explain free radical mechanism of chlorination of m
In benzene, 6p electrons are present.
∴ n = 1 wkt Huckel’s rule is (4n + 2) p electrons.
∴ (4×1 + 2)π = 6π electrons.
Benzene is aromatic because it obeys Huckel rule and it is planar.

(b) Explain the mechanism of addition of HBr on propene.
The mechanism of addition of hydrogen bromide to propene takes place in three steps:

Step 1: Hydrogen bromide dissociates into H+ and Br
H-Br → H+ + Br

Step 2: The electrophile H+ attacks propene to form carbocation.
1st PUC Chemistry Previous Year Question Paper March 2019 (South) - 14
of the two carbocations (I) and (II), carbocations (I) is more stable and is formed more readily.

Step 3: The nucleophile Br attacks the carbocation (I) to give 2 – bromopropane.
