The solubility product of sulphide of zinc is very high (cations of group IV) When hydrogen sulphide is passed through zinc nitrate solution in acid medium only CuS gets precipitated. Thus both aluminium atoms in the dimer achieve octets.ANSWER (i) In AlCl3 aluminium atom has only 6 electrons in its outermost shell. The sulphide ion concentration is not enough to exceed the very high Ksp of ZnS. In acid medium the dissociation of H2S is suppressed due to common ion achieve stability the molecule exists as dimer. . So it is not precipitated. ANSWER (ii) The solubility product of sulphide of copper is very low. The apparatus consists of an electrically heated copper vessel which acts as the cathode.(cations of group II). [3] In Whytlaw Gray’s method fluorine is prepared by the electrolysis of fused KHF2.During the formation of dimmer one chlorine atom of one molecule donates a lone pair of electrons to the aluminium atom of the other molecule resulting in the formation of two dative bonds. H2S HCl 2H+ + S2H+ + Cl- (acid) So the sulphide ion concentration is low. The graphite rod is enclosed in a copper diaphragm perforated at the bottom.→ H2 9 . This is enough to exceed the very low Ksp of CuS.A pure graphite rod is used as anode. The diaphragm prevents the mixing of hydrogen liberated at the cathode and fluorine liberated at the anode. So it gets precipitated. SECTION B (Answer any two questions) Question 5 (a) Explain how fluorine is prepared by the electrolysis of potassium hydrogen fluoride. To achieve octet ie.

Only aldehydes having no alpha hydrogen undergo the Cannizzaro’s reaction. Therefore the equilibrium move to the dissociated form and hence phenol furnish a high concentration of H+ ions and behave as fairly strong acid In the case of ethanol neither ethanol nor ethoxide ion is stabilized by resonance and hence it behaves as weaker acid than phenol. ANSWER Acetaldehyde contains alpha hydrogen atom. The 16 . So they undergo Cannizzaro’s reaction.Phenoxide is more stabilized by resonance than phenol. CH3CHO has 3 alpha hydrogen. Formaldehyde and benzaldehyde have no alpha hydrogen atom. To determine the primary structure of a protein it is hydrolysed and the amino acids formed are identified. The sequence in which amino acids are arranged in a protein is called its primary structure. The nature and quantity of each amino acid produced due to hydrolysis can be used to establish the sequence of amino acids in the protein chain. C2H5OH C2H5O. Hydrogen attached to the alpha carbon (carbon attached to the functional group) is called alpha hydrogen. (Reason: In phenol. three contributing structures involve charge separation whereas in case of phenoxide ion there is no charge separation). Question 10 (a) What are proteins? How are they formed? What is the primary structure of proteins [3] ANSWER Proteins are complex nitrogenous organic compounds which are essential for the growth and maintenance of life. Proteins perform many biological functions. They are formed by the condensation polymerization of alpha amino acids through the formation of peptide bonds ( [-CO-NH-] linkage).+ H+ Ethanol Ethoxide ion (ii) Acetaldehyde does not give Cannizzaro’s reaction but formaldehyde and benzaldehyde give the reaction. Proteins are polypeptides of very high molecular mass. So it does not undergo Cannizzaro’s reaction.
