The time given at the head of this Paper is the time allowed for writing the answers. Attempt all the questions from Section A and any four questions from Section B . The intended marks for questions or parts of questions are given in brackets [ ]. SECTION A ( 40 Marks ) Attempt all the questions from this Section Question 1. (a) Name the following : (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (b) (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (c) (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) The compound formed when excess ammonium hydroxide is added to copper sulphate solution. The process used to concentrate bauxite. A gas produced when cold (1%) dilute nitric acid is reacted with magnesium. An alloy made of copper and zinc only. Another name for elements belonging to group IIA. [5] Copper sulphate solution is electrolysed using platinum electrodes. Sulphur dioxide is passed through a jar containing bromine water. Excess ammonia is passed through Nessler’s reagent Ammonia is passed over heated copper oxide. Copper is added to concentrated nitric acid and heated strongly. [5] A salt solution reacted with AgNO3 solution , gives a white precipitate soluble in excess of NH4OH. The salt solution reacts with barium nitrate solution , gives a heavy white precipitate. The salt gives a gas with dilute H2SO4 turning lead acetate paper black. The salt with dilute H2SO4 gives a gas which turns acidified potassium dichromate green. The salt solution gives a brown ring with FeSO4 and concentrated sulphuric acid in drops. [5]
