discuss the diagonal relationship between Be and Al

Posted by jay patel (Mar 17, 2017 9:18 a.m.) (Question ID: 3966)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. The ionic radius of Be2+ is estimated to be 31 pm : the charge/ radius ratio is nearly the same as that of the Al3+ ion. Hence beryllium resembles aluminium in some ways. Some of the similarities are:

    • Like aluminum, beryllium is not readily attacked by acids because of the presence of an oxide film on the surface of the metal.
    • Beryllium hydroxide dissolves in excess of alkali to give a beryllate ion, just as aluminium hydroxide gives aluminate ion.
    • The chlorides of both beryllium and aluminium have Cl- bridged chloride structure in vapour phase. Both the chlorides are soluble in organic solvents and are strong Lewis acids. They are used as Friedel Craft catalysts.
    • Beryllium and aluminium ions have strong tendency to form complexes.

Limiting reagent 

Posted by anish babu (Mar 15, 2017 7:38 p.m.) (Question ID: 3858)

  • Answers:
  • The limiting reagent (or limiting reactant) in a chemical reaction is the substance that is totally consumed when the chemical reaction is complete. The amount of product formed is limited by this reagent, since the reaction cannot continue without it.

calculate volume of 4.4 g of CO2 at stp

Posted by Pooja Verma (Mar 10, 2017 12:38 p.m.) (Question ID: 3418)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. No. of moles of CO2 present=given mass /molar mass

    => 4.4/44 = 0.1 moles

    No. of moles = given vol. / 22.4 litres

    => 0.1= given vol./22.4 litres

    => 0.1*22.4 = given vol.

    Given vol is the required vol. here,

    So the vol. occupied by 4.4g of CO2 is 2.24 litres.

Explain the principle of paper chromatography?

Posted by Navneet chauhan (Mar 09, 2017 10:09 a.m.) (Question ID: 3352)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. Principle of paper chromatography: The principle involved is partition chromatography wherein the substances are distributed or partitioned between liquid phases. One phase is the water, which is held in the pores of the filter paper used; and other is the mobile phase which moves over the paper. The compounds in the mixture get separated due to differences in their affinity towards water (in stationary phase) and mobile phase solvents during the movement of mobile phase under the capillary action of pores in the paper.

    The principle can also be adsorption chromatography between solid and liquid phases, wherein the stationary phase is the solid surface of paper and the liquid phase is of mobile phase.

    But most of the applications of paper chromatography work on the principle of partition chromatography, i.e. partitioned between to liquid phases.

Why molecules of larger size can be easily polarized ?

Posted by Ashmita Tokas (Mar 06, 2017 2:13 p.m.) (Question ID: 3170)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. In large ions, the charge is distributed over a large area, because of which the charge per unit volume is less. Therefore the hold of the nucleus on the outermost electrons is less, because of which the electronic distribution in these ions can be easily disturbed (or they can be easily polarised), when a small ion comes closer to these ions.

why amminoa has higher dipole momentvthan nf3


Posted by Pradiksha Bablu (Mar 03, 2017 8:59 a.m.) (Question ID: 2947)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. 

    This is due to the fact that dipole moment is a vector quantity and hence resultant dipole moment in a molecule will depend upon the direction of dipole moments of individual bonds.

    Nitrogen has a lone pair of electrons and is more electronegative than hydrogen. So, in case of NH3, the orbital moment due to the lone pair of electrons on nitrogen is in the same direction of the 3 N-H dipoles.Thus, the molecule has a net dipole moment and it is polar.

    In NF3, fluorine being more electronegative than nitrogen pulls the shared pair of electrons of the N-F bonds towards itself. Because of this, the orbital moment due to lone pair of electrons and the resultant dipole moment of 3 N-F bonds point in the opposite directions to that of lone pair of electrons. This lowers the dipole moment of NF3.

Meaning of neucleophile

Posted by Abhishek Rai (Feb 28, 2017 6:15 a.m.) (Question ID: 2765)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. A Nucleophile is a chemical species that donates an electron pair to an electrophile to form a chemical bond in relation to a reaction. All molecules or ions with a free pair of electrons or at least one pi bond can act as Nucleophiles. Because nucleophiles donate electrons, they are by definition Lewis bases.

  • Answers:
  • <h4>Answer:</h4>

    <a href="">Molarity</a> is the concentration of a solution expressed as the number of moles of solute per litre of solution.


    To get the molarity, you divide the moles of solute by the litres of solution


    Molarity=moles of solute / litres of solution

    Molarity decreases when temperature increases.


    Molarity is affected by temperature because it is based on the volume of the solution, and the volume of a substance will be affected by changes in temperature.

    In general, volume will increase when temperature increases, and vice versa. So if we use an example where temperature is increasing, that means the L in that equation is getting larger as well. Since we are dividing by L, (and dividing by a larger number gives a smaller answer,) M will become smaller.

. (i) Give two industrial applications of distillation under reduced pressure. (ii) Why is it necessary to use acetic acid and not hydrochloric acid for acidification of sodium extract for testing sulphur by lead acetate test?

Posted by Slr Teja (Feb 22, 2017 7:25 a.m.) (Question ID: 2427)

  • Answers:
  • Ans. (i)Distillation Under Reduced Pressure is used for purifying or separating thermally unstable liquid compounds.

    Uses :

    • In Petroleum Refining
    • in food processing

    (ii) For testing of sulphur present in the organic compound, the Lassaigne’s extract is acidified with acetic acid (CH3COOH) and not sulphuric acid because lead acetate is soluble and does not interfere with the test. If sulphuric acid (H2SO4 ) is used, lead acetate will react with H2SO4 itself to form white ppt. PbSO4.

. Which species is the smallest aromatic substance?

Posted by Lokesh i47 (Feb 21, 2017 9:40 p.m.) (Question ID: 2411)

  • Answers:
  • The cyclopropenyl cation is the smallest aromatic substance.

    As to π electrons, when n = 0, the ordinary cyclopropene molecule is not aromatic. It becomes aromatic only if the third π electron is missing. That is, when it becomes the cyclopropenyl cation and its ring has a positive charge.
