Therefore, \[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{n}}_{\text{g}}}\] =1−3=−2

\[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{H}}_{\text{o}}}\] = \[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{U}}_{\text{o}}}\] + \[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{n}}_{\text{g}}}\]​RT

\[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{H}}_{\text{o}}}\]=−393−2RT

∴ \[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{H}}_{\text{o}}}\]< \[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{U}}_{\text{o}}}\]

Hence, option (ii) is the correct answer.

III. Short Answer Type 

20. 18.0 g of water completely vaporises at \[\mathbf{10}{{\mathbf{0}}^{\mathbf{\bullet }}}\mathbf{C}\] and 1 bar pressure and the enthalpy change in the process is 40.79 kJ \[\mathbf{Mo}{{\mathbf{l}}^{\mathbf{-1}}}\]. What will be the enthalpy change for vaporising two moles of water under the same conditions? What is the standard enthalpy of vaporisation for water?

Ans: Enthalpy of a reaction is defined as the energy change per mole for the process. Therefore, 

18 g of \[{{\text{H}}_{\text{2}}}\text{O}\]= 1 mole (\[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{H}}_{\text{Vap}}}\] = 40.79 kJ \[\text{Mo}{{\text{l}}^{\text{-1}}}\]) 

Enthalpy change for vaporising 2 moles of \[{{\text{H}}_{\text{2}}}\text{O}\] = 2 x 40.79 = 81.58 kJ

\[\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ }{{\text{H}}_{\text{Vap}}}\] = 40.79 kJ \[\text{Mo}{{\text{l}}^{\text{-1}}}\].


21. One mole of acetone requires less heat to vapourise than 1 mol of water. Which of the two liquids has higher enthalpy of vaporization?

Ans:  Due to weak force of attraction between molecules, acetone requires less heat to vaporise. Hence, water has higher enthalpy of vaporization.


22. Standard molar enthalpy of formation, $\Delta $fH- is just a special case of enthalpy of reaction, $\Delta $rH- Is the $\Delta $rH- forhe following reaction same as $\Delta $fH-? Give reason for your answer.

CaO(s)+CO2(g)$\to $CaCO3(s) $\Delta $fH-= -178.3KJ/mol

Ans: Standard molar enthalpy of formation,rH1- is just a special case of fH2-, where

one mole of a compound is formed from its constituent elements. In the above equation, enthalpy of formation and enthalpy of reaction is not the same.


23.The value of $\Delta {{H}^{\Theta }}$ for NH3 is – 91.8 kJ mol-1. Calculate the enthalpy change for the following reaction :

2NH3(g) $\to $N2(g) + 3H2(g)

Ans: The enthalpy change for the given reaction can be calculated as: -

N2(g) + 3H2(g)$\to $2NH3 (g)

$\Delta $fH=-91.8kg/mol

The enthalpy of the reaction is +91.8 kg/mol. This happens as with the reversal of reaction, the value of $\Delta $fH also gets reversed.


24. Enthalpy is an extensive property. In general, if enthalpy of an overall reaction A→B along one route is $\Delta $rH and $\Delta $rH1, $\Delta $rH2, $\Delta $rH3……represent enthalpies of intermediate reactions leading to product B. What will be the relation between $\Delta $rH for overall reaction and$\Delta $rH1, $\Delta $rH2, $\Delta $rH3 etc for intermediate reactions.

Ans: According to Hess’s law, $\Delta $rH = $\Delta $rH1+ $\Delta $rH2+$\Delta $rH3

This is so because during the reaction A$\to $ B, B’s formation undergoes various intermediate reactions, with the overall value of the enthalpy being $\Delta $rH.


25. The enthalpy of atomisation for the reaction CH4(g)$\to $C(g) + 4H (g)  is 1665kJ mol-1. What is the bond energy of C-H bond?

Ans: The reaction presented in the question is

CH4(g)$\to $C(g) + 4H (g)

Now, $\Delta $aH = 1665  kJ mol-1

The mean bond enthalpy of the C-H bond should be used here. For the atomisation of 4 moles of C-H bonds, the value is 1665 kJ/mol-1. So, per mole energy = 1665/4 = 416.2 kJ / mol-1.


26. Use the following data to calculate $\Delta $ latticeH$\ominus $for NaBr.

$\Delta $sub H$\ominus $for sodium metal = 108.4 kJ mol–1

Ionization enthalpy of sodium = 496 kJ mol-1

Electron gain enthalpy of bromine = – 325 kJ mol-1

Bond dissociation enthalpy of bromine = 192 kJ mol-1

$\Delta $fH$\ominus $for NaBr (s) = – 360.1 kJ mol-1

Ans: In order to calculate the lattice enthalpy of NaBr,

(i)Na(s) $\to $Na(g) ;$\Delta $ subH$\circ $=108.4 kJ mol-1

(ii) Na$\to $Na+ + e-   ; $\Delta $iH$\circ $ = 496kJ mol-1

(iii) $\frac{~~~1~}{2}$Br2$\to $ Br, $\frac{~~1~~}{2}\Delta $ dissH$\circ $=96kJ mol-1

(iv) Br+e-$\to $Br-;  $\Delta $ egH$\circ $= - 325 kJmol-1

$\Delta $fH$\circ $= $\Delta $ subH$\circ $+ $\frac{~~1~~}{2}\Delta $ dissH$\circ $+$\Delta $iH$\circ $+ $\Delta $ egH$\circ $+ $\Delta $ latticeH$\circ $

= -360.1 -108.4-96-496+325 = -735.5KJ mol-1


27. Given that ΔH= 0 for mixing of two gases. Explain whether the diffusion of these gases into each other in a closed container is a spontaneous process or not?

Ans: It is a spontaneous process. Although enthalpy change is zero, randomness or disorder (ΔS) increases and ΔS is positive. Therefore, in the equation, ΔG = ΔH – TΔS, the term TΔS will be negative. Hence ΔG will be negative.


28. Heat has a randomising influence on a system and temperature is the measure of average chaotic motion of particles in the system. Write the mathematical relation which relates these three parameters.

Ans: Heat has a randomising influence on a system and temperature is the measure of average chaotic motion of particles in the system. The mathematical relation which relates these three parameters is ΔS = qrev/ T

Here, ΔS = change in entropy                                                  ^

qrcv = heat of reversible reaction ‘

T = temperature


29. Increase in enthalpy of the surroundings is equal to decrease in enthalpy of the system. Will the temperature of the system and surroundings be the same when they are in thermal equilibrium?

Ans: Yes, when the system and the surroundings are in thermal equilibrium, their temperatures are the same.


30. At 298 K, Kp for the reaction N204(g)⇌ 2N02(g) is 0.98. Predict whether the reaction is spontaneous or not.

Ans: ΔrG° = -RT ln Kp

= -RT ln (0.98)

Since In (0.98) is negative

.’. ΔrG° is positive the reaction is non spontaneous

32. The standard molar entropy of H2O(l) is 70 J K-1 mol-1. Will the standard molar entropy H2O(s) be more, or less than 70 J K -1 mol-1?

Ans: The standard molar entropy of H20 (1) is 70 J K-1 mol-1. The solid form of H20 is ice. In ice, molecules of H20 are less random than in liquid water. Thus, molar entropy of H20 (s) < molar entropy of H20 (1). The standard molar entropy of H20 (s) is less than 70 J K 1 mol-1.


33. Identify the state functions and path functions out of the following: enthalpy, entropy, heat, temperature, work, free energy.

Ans: State functions: Enthalpy, entropy, temperature, free energy Path functions: Heat, work


34. The molar enthalpy of vaporization of acetone is less than that of water. Why?

Ans:  Molar enthalpy of vaporization is more for water due to hydrogen bonding between water molecules.


Q35. Which quantity out of ΔrG and ΔrG° will be zero at equilibrium?

Ans:  Gibbs energy for a reaction in which all reactants and products are in standard state. ΔrG° is related to the equilibrium constant of the reaction as follows

ΔrG = ArG° + RT In K

At equilibrium, 0 = ΔrG° + RT In A– ({ΔrG = 0) or    ΔrG° =-RT lnK

ΔrG° = 0 when K= 1

For all other values of K, ArG° will be non-zero.


36. Predict the change in internal energy for an isolated system at constant volume.

37. Although heat is a path function, heat absorbed by the system under certain specific conditions is independent of path. What are those conditions? Explain.

Ans : At constant volume

q = ΔU + (-w)

-w = pΔ q = AU + pΔV

ΔV = 0 (at constant volume)

Hence, qv = ΔU + 0 = ΔU= change in internal energy at constant pressure, qp = AU + pΔV

Since ΔU + pΔV=ΔH

=> qp = ΔH change in enthalpy

Hence, at constant volume and at constant pressure, heat change is a state function because it is equal to ΔU and ΔH respectively which are state functions.


38. Expansion of a gas in vacuum is called free expansion. Calculate the work done and the change in internal energy when 1 litre of ideal gas expands isothermally into vacuum until its total volume is 5 litre.

Ans: During free expansion, external pressure is zero, so Work done, w = -pextΔV

= -0(5 – 1) = 0

Since the gas is expanding isothermally, therefore, q = 0

ΔU = q + w =0+0=0


39. Heat capacity (CP) is an extensive property but specific heat (c) is an intensive property. What will be the relation between Cp and c for 1 mol of water?

Ans: For water, molar heat capacity = 18 x Specific heat or Cp = 18 x c

But, specific heat,

C = 4.18 J g-1 K-1 Heat capacity,

Cp = 18 x 4.18 JK 1 = 75.24 JK-1


40. The difference between Cp and Cv can be derived using the empirical relation H = U + pV. Calculate the difference between Cp and Cv for 10 moles of an ideal gas.

Ans: Given that, Cv = heat capacity at constant volume,

Cp = heat capacity at constant pressure

 Difference between Cp and Cv is equal to gas constant (R).

.’. Cp – Cv = nR                                (where, n = no. of moles)

= 10 x 8.314 = 83.14J


41. If the combustion of 1 g of graphite produces 20.7 kJ of heat, what will be the molar enthalpy change? Give the significance of the sign also.

Ans: Molar enthalpy change for graphite (ΔH)

= enthalpy change for 1 g x molar mass of C = -20.7×12 = -2.48 x 102 kJ mol-1

Since the sign of ΔH = -ve, it is an exothermic reaction.


42. The net enthalpy change of a reaction is the amount of energy required to break all the bonds in reactant molecules minus the amount of energy required to form all the bonds in the product molecules. What will be the enthalpy change for the following reaction?

H2(g) + Br2(g)→2HBr(g)

Given that the bond energy of H2, Br2 and HBr is 4.35 kJ mol-1,192 kJ mol-1 and 368 kJ mol -1 respectively.

Ans: $\Delta $rH$\circ $=$\Sigma $B.E(reactant)-$\Sigma $B.E(product)

 =B.E.H2 + BEBR2 -2 $\times $B.E>HBr

= 435+192-2($\times $368)

= 109KJmol-1


43. The enthalpy of vaporization of CCl4 is 30.5 kJ mol–1 . Calculate the heat required for the  vaporization of 284 g of CCl4 at constant pressure. (Molar mass of CCl4 = 154 g mol–1).

Ans: As per the information provided in the question, for one mole of CCl4(154 g), the heat of vaporisation required is 30.5 kJ/mol .

Hence for the vaporisation of 284 g of CCl4, we require:

$\frac{~~~284~~~}{154}\times $30.5

=56.2 kJ


44. The enthalpy of reaction for the reaction:

2H2 (g) + O2(g) $\to $2H2O(l) $\Delta $ rH$\ominus $= - 572 kJmol-1. What will be the standard enthalpy of formation of H2O(l) ?

Ans: Standard molar enthalpy of formation is the enthalpy change for the formation of one mole of a compound from its most stable states or reference states. As per the given information in the question, the standard enthalpy for the given equation is – 572 kJ mol–1

Now the enthalpy of formation for \[H_{2}O\] will be half the enthalpy of the value in the given equation. So, now we can calculate that:

$\Delta $fH=$\frac{~~~1~~}{2}\times \Delta $yH= $\frac{~~~572~~}{2}$=-286KJmol-1


45. What will be the work done on an ideal gas enclosed in a cylinder, when it is compressed by a constant external pressure, pext in a single step as shown in Fig. 6.2. Explain graphically.

Ans: Assumption: Cylinder is filled with one mole gas, and the piston is frictionless. Let the pressure of gas inside be p and the volume of gas be V_{I}.

Piston is moved towards the inside to make the external pressure (P_{ext}) equal to p. Now, let us assume that this change takes place in a single step, hence, V is the final volume. The work done by the piston is depicted in the graph shown below by shading the area.

Pext$\Delta $V= AV1$\times $(V1-V2)

46. How will you calculate work done on an ideal gas in a compression, when change in pressure is carried out in infinite steps?

Ans: When a process can be reversed by bringing an extremely small change in it, we call it a reversible process. The pressure-volume graph can be used to calculate the work done. The pressure is not constant, and changes in infinitesimal amounts as compression happens from initial volume Vi to the final volume Vf. The below graph depicts the work done with the shaded area.

48. Enthalpy diagram for a particular reaction is given in Fig. 6.3. Is it possible to decide spontaneity of a reaction from a given diagram? Explain.

Ans: No, for the state of spontaneity, the enthalpy change is not the only criteria. Entropy also needs to be taken into account here.


49. 1.0 mol of a monatomic ideal gas is expanded from state (1) to state (2) as shown in figure. Calculate the work done for the expansion of gas from state (1) to state (2) at 298 K.


seo images


Ans: We can conclude from the figure that this change is a reversible change.

Now,

W= -2.303 $\times $nRT log$\frac{~~~p1~~}{p2}$

=-2.303 $\times $8.314$\times $1$\times $298$\times $log2

= -2.303 $\times $8.314$\times $298$\times $0.3010J

=-1717.46J


50. An ideal gas is allowed to expand against a constant pressure of 2 bar from 10 L to 50 L in one step. Calculate the amount of work done by the gas. If the same expansion were carried out reversibly, will the work done be higher or lower than the earlier case?

(Given that 1 L bar = 100 J)

Ans: We know that the amount of work done =-pext$\Delta $V

On substituting the values in the formula, we get,

-2bar$\times $(50-10)L=-80Lbar

According to the described problem,1LBar = 100J

Therefore, -80 Lbar=(-80$\times $100)=-8000J

=-8kJ, which is the amount of work done

The significance of the negative sign states that the work is done on the surroundings of the system. In the case of reversible expansion, the work done will be more.

58. Derive the relationship between H and U for an ideal gas. Explain each term involved in the equation.

Ans: We know that the change in internal energy equals the heat absorbed at constant volume, i.e., U= qV.m. However, the majority of chemical reactions are carried out in flasks or test tubes under constant atmospheric pressure U= qp -PV under constant pressure, where qp is the heat absorbed by the system and -PV is the expansion work done by the system.

Let's call the beginning state with subscript 1 and the end state with subscript 2.

The above equation can be rewritten as

U2-U1= P(V2-V1)

On rearranging, we get

qp= (U2+pV2) - (U1 + pV1)...........(1)

Now, we can define another thermodynamic function, the enthalpy H [Greek word enthalpien, to warm or heat content] as:

H = U + pV………(2)

So, equation (1) becomes

qp = H2- H1 = ΔH

Despite the fact that q is a path dependent function, H is a state function because it is reliant on state functions U, p, and V. As a result, H is path-independent. As a result, qp is path-independent.

Equation (2) can be written as for finite changes at constant pressure.

ΔH= ΔU + ΔpV

Since, P is constant, we can write:

ΔH = ΔU + PΔV……………(3)

It's worth noting that we're actually measuring changes in the enthalpy when heat is absorbed by the system at constant pressure. Remember  ΔH= qp , heat absorbed by the system at constant pressure. H is negative for exothermic reactions, which produce heat, and positive for endothermic reactions, which absorb heat from the environment.

As a result, equation (3) becomes U = qv at constant volume (V=0).

ΔH= ΔU=qv

Let's have a look at a gaseous reaction. If VA is the total volume of gaseous reactants, VB is the total volume of gaseous products, nA is the number of moles of gaseous reactants, and nB is the number of moles of gaseous products, then we write using the ideal gas law.,

PVA = nART

PVB = nBRT

Thus, PVB- PVA = nBRT - nART = (nB-nA)RT

Or, P(VB- VA) = (nB - nA)RT

Or, pΔV = ΔngRT……….(4)

The number of moles of gaseous products minus the number of moles of gaseous reactants is denoted by ng.

Equation (3) is obtained by substituting the value of PV from equation (4) in equation (3).

ΔH = ΔU + ΔngRT…………(5)


59. Extensive properties depend on the quantity of matter but intensive properties do not. Explain whether the following properties are extensive or intensive. Mass, internal energy, pressure, heat capacity, molar heat capacity, density, mole fraction, specific heat, temperature and molarity.

Ans: A contrast is drawn in thermodynamics between extensive and intense qualities. An extensive property is one whose value is proportional to the amount or size of matter in the system. Extensive properties include mass, volume, internal energy, enthalpy, and heat capacity, to name a few.

Properties that are independent of the amount or size of matter present are known.

As though they were intensive properties Temperature, density, and pressure, for example, are intense properties. A molar property, 𝝌m, is the value of an extensive property of the system for 1 mol of the substance. If n is the amount of matter, 𝝌m = 𝝌/n, is independent of the amount of matter. An intensive property is always the ratio of two extensive properties.

Extensive/Extensive = Intensive

E.g., Mole Fraction = Moles / Total number of moles = Extensive/Extensive


60. The lattice enthalpy of an ionic compound is the enthalpy when one mole of an ionic compound present in its gaseous state, dissociates into its ions. It is impossible to determine directly by experiment. Suggest and explain an indirect method to measure lattice enthalpy of NaCl(s).

Ans:  The enthalpy change that occurs when one mole of an ionic compound dissociates into its ions in a gaseous state is called the lattice enthalpy of an ionic compound.

Na+ + Cl- (s) → Na+ (g) + Cl- (g)

Δlattice H0 → +788 KJmol-1

Let us now calculate the lattice enthalpy of Na+Cl- (s) by following steps given below:

1. Na (s) → Na (g), sublimation of sodium metal, ΔsubH0 = 108.4 KJmol-1

2. Na (g) → Na+ (g) + e- (g) the ionization sodium atoms, ionization enthalpy.

ΔiH0 = 496 KJ/mol 

3. ½ Cl2 (g)  → 2Cl (g), the dissociation of chlorine, the reaction enthalpy is half the bond dissociation enthalpy.

1/2 Δbond H0 = 121 KJ/mol

4. Cl (g) + e- → Cl- (g) electron gained by chlorine atoms. The electron gain enthalpy,  

Δe.g H0 = -348.6 KJ/mol.

5. Na+(g) + Cl- (g) → Na+Cl- (s) 


61. ΔG is net energy available to do useful work and is thus a measure of “free energy”. Show mathematically that ΔG is a measure of free energy. Find the unit of ΔG. If a reaction has positive enthalpy change and positive entropy change, under what condition will the reaction be spontaneous?

Ans: We know,

ΔStotal = ΔSsys + ΔSsurr

When a system is in thermal equilibrium with its surroundings, the surroundings' temperature is the same as the system's. Furthermore, a rise in the enthalpy of the surroundings equals a decrease in the system's enthalpy. As a result of the entropy shift in the environment,

ΔSsurr = ΔHsurr/T = -ΔHsys/T

ΔStotal = ΔSsys = (-ΔHsys/T)

Rearranging the above equation:

ΔStotal = TΔSsys - ΔHsys

For spontaneous process,

ΔStotal > 0, so 

TΔSsys - ΔHsys> 0

⇒ ( - ΔHsys - TΔSsys) > 0

The above equation can be written as

- ΔG > 0

ΔG = ΔH - TΔS < 0

ΔHsys is the enthalpy change of a reaction, TΔSsys is the energy which is not available to do

useful work. As a result, G is a measure of 'free energy,' as it is the net energy available to conduct beneficial work. As a result, it's also known as the reaction's free energy. At constant pressure and temperature, G gives a set of conditions for spontaneity,

(i) If ΔG is negative (<0), the process is spontaneous.

(ii) If ΔG is positive (>0), the process is nonspontaneous.

• Unit of ΔG is Joule.

• The reaction will be spontaneous at high temperature.

The Approach While Dealing With the Concept of Thermodynamics

  • Since the concept of Thermodynamics and the terminologies of Chemistry are a bit new to the students, they should first learn the names of different chemical components and how to write the chemical equations properly by joining the free Classes on Vedantu and by consulting the NCERT Exemplars and Solutions books.

  • While writing the chemical equations, they might make some mistakes. To avoid making errors, they should practice writing the equations at home.

  • Solving previous years' question papers will help them to manage time and quickly analyze the answers in their minds.

  • Comparing their own answers with the solutions provided in the NCERT Exemplar Solutions will help them to be sure of the fact that how efficient they are at answering the questions of Chemistry. It will help them to boost their confidence as well.

  • Revising is extremely important when it comes to answering Chemistry questions since a lack of practice and habits of writing can make the students forget some important information that they should include in their answers. The mock papers are beneficial for them to serve this purpose

  • Rational thinking plays an important part in answering the questions in Chemistry. The students need to have a clear idea of the basic physical characteristics of different chemical compounds and how they will react depending on the presence of other external factors. Practicing is the only way to sharpen their thinking ability and analysis power.

FAQs on NCERT Exemplar for Class 11 Chemistry Chapter-6 (Book Solutions)

1. What is the significance of including the concept of Thermodynamics in Chemistry?

Although the concept of Thermodynamics is included in Physics, understanding the concept can also help the Chemistry students to understand and estimate the percentage of success of conducting a chemical experiment. The laws of Thermodynamics also help the Chemistry students to get an idea if a particular reaction is possible to conduct in the presupposed direction. As the laws of Thermodynamics explain the different characteristics of a particular matter under different temperature ranges, it is important for Chemistry students to take these laws and factors into account before conducting their chemical experiments.

2. What do the laws of Thermodynamics explain in Chemistry?

Chemistry is a subject that deals with various chemical reactions and experiments. When a particular matter undergoes different stages of transformation, a change takes place in the position of the particles and the structure of molecules. When a particular matter gets transformed into something else, the outward and physical properties of the matter also change and that happens because of the change in the energy supplied to it. The Thermodynamic laws of Chemistry explain various facts associated with energy conversion.

3. What is suggested by entropy in Chemistry?

Several laws are associated with the concept of Thermodynamics introduced in the subject of Chemistry. The Entropy suggests the loss of Energy. It denotes the amount of energy lost by a particular matter when it undergoes a change. The entropy can increase or remain constant depending on the particular type of system in which the matter is placed. It is suggested that when the process of transformation is a reversible one then the entropy will be zero. If the process is irreversible then the loss of energy or entropy will increase. If the matter is placed in an Isolated System, there will be an increase in terms of entropy.

4. What is the difference between the concept of Thermodynamics included in Physics and Chemistry?

The laws of Physics can help people to understand and analyze the fundamental characteristics of different matters and how the properties change if the influential factors like heat and other external factors get altered. Chemistry utilizes the laws of Physics to prove the reasons for these transformations with the help of chemical experiments.

5. How can the students easily learn the concept of Thermodynamics in Chemistry?

Chemistry is not a difficult subject at all if the students can understand the logic behind conducting a particular experiment. If the students can get completely familiarised with the names of different chemical compounds and understand how a slight change in the quantity of these chemical components can cause a massive change in the result, they can understand the significance of conducting the chemical experiments. 


For that, they need to download the course materials that include the different Chapters of Chemistry from the website of Vedantu. Apart from the popular books that are prescribed by the CBSE, the students can also get their hands on the NCERT Solutions, RD Sharma Solutions, RS Aggarwal solutions, and other revision note as well. All these books can help them understand the concepts of Chemistry very easily.
