A mole is quite often called chemist's dozen.Explain.

Posted by Debaditya Ghosh (Feb 22, 2017 11:06 a.m.) (Question ID: 2437)

• Ans. A dozen is a common counting unit. A counting unit is a convenient number that makes it easier to count objects. We ofen count doughnuts and eggs by dozens. Similarly, we count shoes and gloves in pairs. Chemists, however, do not work with macroscopic (visible) objects like shoes and doughnuts. Instead, chemists are interested in microscopic entities: atoms and molecules. Since these entities are so small, chemists established their own practical counting unit called the mole. So we can say that A Mole is a Chemist Dozen.

Why  can't  the number of protons be more than number of neutrons in an atom?

Posted by Pranzal Kumar Sinha (Feb 21, 2017 8:35 p.m.) (Question ID: 2410)

• The reason is that protons, being charged particles, repel each other. As you get to heavier elements, with each new proton you add, there is a larger repulsive force. The nuclear force is attractive and stronger than the electrostatic force, but it has a finite range. So you need to add extra neutrons, which do not repel each other, to add extra attractive force.

a man fires a bullet towards cliff and hears echo after 4 sec he moves towards the clife nabout 150m and agains fire now he hears echo after3.6s what is the distance from his first position[ASSUME VELOCITY OF SOUND IS NOT KNOWN TO YOU]

Posted by Yuvraj Singh (Feb 21, 2017 5:31 p.m.) (Question ID: 2400)

• Ans. Let the Distance  b/w cliff and man = d m

Then total distance cover by sound = 2d m

Velocity of Sound = v

Then

$$v = {2d \over 4} = {d\over 2}\space\space\space\space\space\space\space\space\space\space ......[1]$$

As He move 150m  towards The cliff,

Now distance b/w man and cliff = d-150 m

Total distance covered by Sound = 2(d-150) m

So

$$v = {2(d-150)\over 3.6} = {2(d-150)\times 10\over 36} = {5(d-150)\over 9} \space \space \space \space \space ......[2]$$

As velocity of sound is same, then

from (1) and (2)

=> $${d\over 2}= {5(d-150)\over 9}$$

=> $$9d = 10d - 1500$$

=> $$10d- 9d = 1500 => d = 1500$$

Distance b/w man and cliff = 1500 m

If x+ y = 21 and x × y= 80 then find x and y.

Posted by SHRI NIWAS JAT (Feb 21, 2017 7:33 a.m.) (Question ID: 2382)

• Ans. x + y = 21 ......(1)

xy = 80   .....(2)

From (1)

x = 21-y

(21-y)×y = 80

=> 21y - y2 = 80

=> y-21y +80 = 0

=> y2 -16y -5y +80=0

=> y(y-16)-5(y-16) = 0

=> (y-16)(y-5) = 0

=> y = 16 or y = 5

If y =16 then x = 5

If y =5 then x =16

A Cube of side 4cm contains a sphere touching its sides.Find the voloume of the gap in between.

Posted by Rahul Maheshwari (Feb 20, 2017 2:32 p.m.) (Question ID: 2361)

• Ans. Side of Cube (a) = 4 cm

Volume of Cube = $$a^3 = 4 \times 4 \times 4 = 64 cm^3$$

As the Sphere touch the side of Cube

So, Diameter of Sphere = 4 cm

Radius of Sphere(r) = 4/2 = 2 cm

Volume of Sphere = $${4\over 3} \times \pi \times r^3 = {4\over 3} \times {22\over 7}\ \times 8 = {704\over 21} = 33.5 cm^3$$

Volume of Gap = Volume of Cube - Volume of Sphere

=> 64 - 33.5 = 30.5cm3

How to find cube root?

Posted by happy thawani (Feb 20, 2017 2:15 p.m.) (Question ID: 2360)

• there is two process finding the cube root

1. prime factorisation

2. estimatiosation

for estimation

A. divide the nuber into two group, from right most choose only three number,remaining number should other group

for example 17576,,group1=17 and group=576

B. look the group2 last number is 6.so its one digit of cuberoot should 6

C. 17 lie between 23 and 33,for the estimation we choose smallest number i.e 2

thus cuberoot of 17576 is 26

similarly, cube root of 85375 is 95

• Let a and b represent the lower and upper limits of a class interval respectively

Class mark = 10

Class size = 8

Lower limit = Class mark - Half of class size

= 10 -4 = 6

Upper limit = Class mark + Half of class size

Why all the isotopes are not placed in periodic table?

Posted by SUMANA ROY (Feb 19, 2017 10:17 p.m.) (Question ID: 2345)

• Since all the isotopes of an element have the same atomic  number,they can be put at one place in the same group of the periodic table. For example,both the isotopes of chlorine, Cl-35 and Cl-37 ,have the same atomic number of 17,so both of them can be put at one place in the same group of the periodic table.

Weight of an empty glass is 1N. When it is completely filled with water the weight observed is 4N. If you throw the water and fill the empty glass partly with sand and its weight becomes 4N, if the rest of glass is now filled up with water, the weight becomes 6N, what is relative density of sand?

Posted by Harsh Jain (Feb 19, 2017 9:35 p.m.) (Question ID: 2344)

• Weight of empty glass = 1N

Weight of water alone = 4N-1N= 3N

Weight = mg

Mass of water = 3/9.8 = 0.306 kg

Density of water = 1000kg/m3

Volume of glass = 0.306/1000 = 3.06 X 10-4 m3

Weight of half glass sand = 4N-1N =3N

Weight of full glass sand = 3N+3N = 6N

Mass of full glass sand= 6N/9.8 = 0.612kg

Density of sand = Mass of sand/Volume of glass = 0.612/(3.06 X 10-4= 2000kg/m3

Relative density of sand = Density of sand/Density of water

= 2000/1000 =2

• Let AB be the chord of length 4 cm. C be its mid-point

. O be the center of the circle. Join OA [OA becomes the radius]

Given OC = 5 cm

AC = BC = 4/2 = 2 cm [The perpendicular drawn from the center to a chord bisect the chord]

OAC is a right angled triangle

OA2=OC2+AC2[byPythagorasTheorem]

OA2= 52+22

= 25+4

=29

OA= $$\sqrt29$$cm

A sound produced have 20 rarefaction and compressions in 0.2 sec . Distance between compression and rarefaction is 50cm find wavelength ,frequency,and time period of wave.

Posted by SHRI NIWAS JAT (Feb 19, 2017 10:02 a.m.) (Question ID: 2324)

• Since time perios is the time taken to complere one rarefaction and one compression:-

Now, time taken to complete 20 compressions and rarefactions:- 0.2 sec:-

time taken to complere one rarefaction and one compression = 0.2/20

= 0.01sec = time period

Since f=1/t

Therefore f= 1/0.01 = 100 hz
