Read the passage given below and answer the following questions: (41-45)

Ozone is an unstable, dark blue diamagnetic gas. It absorbs the UV radiation strongly, thus protecting the people on earth from the harmful UV-radiation from the sun. The use of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) in aerosol and refrigerator and their subsequent escape into the atmosphere, is blamed for making holes in the ozone layer over the Antarctica. Ozone acts as a strong oxidising agent in acidic and alkaline medium. For this property, ozone is used as a germicide and disinfectant for sterilizing water. It is also used in laboratory for the ozonolysis of organic compounds and in industry for the manufacture of potassium permanganate, artificial silk, etc.

The following questions are multiple-choice questions. Choose the most appropriate answer:

Read the passage given below and answer the following questions: (46-50)

Adsorption depends on the nature of the adsorbent. The rough solid surface has more number of pores and adsorb more number of gases than the smooth surface. Most common adsorbents are silica gel, activated charcoal. The extent of adsorption also depends on the surface area of solid. Specific surface area of an adsorbent is the surface area available for adsorption per gram of the adsorbent. The greater the surface area of the solid, the greater would be the adsoprtion. Charcoal is a more effective adsorbent than solid wood. Desorption is a process of removing an adsorbed substance from a surface on which it is absorbed.

Physisorption is non-specific and any gas can be adsorbed. But the gases which are easily liquefiable (e.g., NH3, HCl, CO2) are adsorbed at a faster rate and to a large extent than the gases which are difficult to liquefy (e.g., H2, O2, N2). It depends on the critical temperature. Higher the critical temperature of a gas, more easily liquefiable it is and the more is the rate of adsorption. Chemisorption is specific in nature. Therefore, only those gases can be adsorbed which are capable of forming chemical bonds with the adsorbent.

The following questions are multiple-choice questions. Choose the most appropriate answer:

Q46. Select the correct statement regarding desoprtion.
(a) It is done by cooling or by increasing the pressure applied
(b) It is done by cooling or by increasing the pressure applied.
(c) It is done by heating or by reducing the pressure applied.
(d) It is done by heating or by increasing the pressure applied.
Answer:Option (c)
Q47. Which of the following statements regarding the physical adsorption of a gas on surface of solid is not correct?

(a) On increasing temperature, adsorption increases continuously
(b) Enthalpy changes are negative
(c) It is non-specific in nature
(d) It is reversible in nature.

Answer:Option (a)

Q48. At the same temperature and pressure, select the correct order of adsorption of the following gases on the same mass of charcoal.
(a) SO2 > CH4 > H2
(b) CH4 > SO2 > H2
(c) H2 > CH4 > SO2
(d) CH4 > H2 > SO2

Answer:Option (a)

Q49. Select the correct option among the following when adsorption of a gas on solid metal surface is spontaneous and exothermic.

(a) ΔS increases
(b) ΔS decreases
(c) ΔG increases
(d) ΔH decreases

Answer:Option (b)

Q50. Select the incorrect statement among the following.
(a) Physical adsorption occurs at a low temperature and chemisorption occurs at all temperature.
(b) In physisorption heat of adsorption is low while in chemisorption it is high.
(c) Chemisorption is irreversible and physisorption is reversible.
(d) Magnitude of chemisorption decreases with rise in temperature while physisorption increases with rise in temperature.

Answer: Option (d)
