(a) How do substances move in an d outdo cells (b) Using suitable examples, explain (i) Diffusion (ii) Osmosis

(iii) Plamolysis (iv) Active transport in cells (c) What are the effects of excessive loss of water from a cell? (d) List the conditions necessary for (i)Osmosis (ii) Active transport

ANSWERS (a) Substances move in and out of cells by the process of diffusion, osmosis or active transport. The process is referred to as diffusion when the molecules of more concentrated cell relative to the environment leave through the microscopic pores in cell membrane to the environment or molecules move into less concentrated cell from more concentrated environment. The molecules do not pass through the semi-permeable cell membrane but through the openings called pores in the membranes. Respiration in many aquatic organism is by diffusion of dissolved oxygen in the water into the protoplasm of the cell. When the movement of molecules is from a low concentrated cell to a high concentrated medium through the partially permeable membrane of the cell, the process is referred to as osmosis. If the cell is higher in co cent ration than the surrounding medium, the molecules in the internal fluid of the cell will not leave but molecule from the low concentrated solution will enter into the cell through the semi permeable cell membrane. Active transport takes place in a living cell because energy is needed for the movement of the molecules from low concentration to high con centration. There is no much difference between osmosis and active transport except that the former does not require energy while the later does not need a semi permeable membrane. Diffusion is the movement of the molecules from the area of high concentration to low concentration without a semi permeable membrane. It occurs in both liquids and gases. In demonstration of diffusion in liquids, we drop potassium tetraoxo manganite (VII) on spot in a beaker containing water. It will be observed that the molecules will be moving from the spot to other areas in the water. The same thing happens if a cube of sugar placed in a cup containing warn water. (b)(i) Diffusion in air can be demonstrated using perfume which is applied in a corner of your classroom. Within a short interval of time students at the other part of the classroom will perceive the scent of the perfume.


(i) Osmosis is the movement of molecules from a region of low concentration to a region of high concentration through a semi-permeable membrane. Osmosis occurs in living and nonliving materials. The demonstration of osmosis can be carried out using yam tuber, two beakers half filled with water. The beakers labelled A and B. The two yam tubers are excavated on top using spoon. Common salt (NaCl) is poured in the excavated hole on top of the first yam. Drop of water is put in the salt. This is now placed in beaker A as the original experiment. Sand instead of salt is put in the second yam tuber and placed in beaker B to serve as control experiment. The two beakers and their contents are allowed to stand for about six hours.

Beaker A

Beaker B

It will be observed that the level of water in beaker A will fall.

(iii)Plasmolysis is the shrinkage of a cell placed in strong solution called hypertonic solution. If a red blood cell for example is placed in brine, molecules of the red blood cell will move into the brine thereby causing the blood cell to shrink as is shown below: (iv)Active transport is the movement of molecules from a region of high concentration across a concentration gradient. It occurs across the gradient. In the diagram at the next page, molecules moves from point X during active transport.

Time (seconds)

Active transport is necessary in blood circulation to transport the blood to various parts of the body and absorption of food substances. (c)A cell, which has lost excessive water, will undergo plasmolysis and wilting Plasmolysis is common with both plants and animals cells but is restricted to the cell membrane of a plant cell ass the cell wall is rigid. The inside of a fully plasmolysed cell will become more concentrated than when it has not undergone plasmolysis.

Plasmolysed plant cell Wilting is the frying up of plant parts and eventual shedding of the leaves. This is due to excessive loss of water by the plant. Wilting is common in plats during prolonged dry season or drought. (d) (i) Conditions necessary for osmosis are 1. there must be semi-permeable membrane 2. there must be two solutions of unequal concentration

(ii) conditions necessary for active transport are 1. The cell must be living to generate energy through respiration 2. Energy for the process must be readily available 3. There must be a concentration gradient.

QUESTIONS 9 (a) Define (i) matter (ii) energy (iii) Atom (iv) orbital (b) State Daltons ATOMIC theory and discuss the validity of each. (c) Draw the (i) Sodium atom (ii) Lithium (iii) Helium atom (iv) Chlorine atom and write their electronic configuration (d) Describe the various sub-atomic particles of an atom. ANSWER

(a) (i) Matter is anything which has weight, occupies space and can exist either as liquid, solid or gas. (ii) energy is the ability to do work.

(iii) Atom is the smallest indivisible particle of an element that can take part in any chemical reaction. (iv) Orbital is an area in space where there is high probability of locating an election. (b)Daltons atomic theory states that: Matter is made up of small indivisible particle of an element called atom. (i) (ii) (iii) Atoms of the sane element are alike but differ from atom of other elements Chemical combination takes place between small whole numbers of atom. Matter can not be created nor destroyed.

The fact that matter is made up of small indivisible particles called atoms does not hold vividly because an atom consists of other sub atomic particles called proton, neutron and election. Also the fact that chemical combination takes place between small whole numbers of atoms has been disproved since the discovery of organic chemistry and the ability of carbon to form very longs chains or catenates. The other two points still hold to a high degree although we cannot discard any of the four points since there is a lot of scientific truth in them.

(d)the sub-atomic particles of an atom are (i) proton (ii) electron (iii) neutron Proton is located in the nucleus of an atom. It has a positive charge and mass of 1. The number of proton equals the number of electron in a neutral atom. The electrons are found on the shells where they determine the type of reaction an atom can undergo. An electron has negative charge and a mass of 1/1840 of that of proton . The neutrons are located in the nucleus with the proton. They are electrically neutral. They have mass of one.

QUESTION 10 (a)Define (i) Mass number atomic mass (v) Isostopy (ii) Isotopes (iii) Atomic number (iv) Relative

(b) list two ways by which elements can be combined to form a compound (c)Define illustrate. (i) Electrovalency (ii) Covalency using suitable anions and/or cautions to

(d) what are the differences between covalent and ionic compounds? (e) what is dative bond?

ANSWERS (A) (i) Mass number is the sum of the proton and neutron in an atom. (ii) isotopes are element having the same atomic number but different mass number due to differences in their number of neutron. (iii) Atomic number is the total number of proton or electron in a neutral atom. (iv) isotopy is a phenomenon whereby elements will have the same atomic number but different mass numbers. (v) relative atomic mass is the atomic mass of an element over the atomic mass of the normal carbon-12 atom.

(b) elements can combine to form a compound either by Electrovalency or covalency.

(c) Electrovalency is the chemical combination of electropositive element and electronegative element by transfer of electron from electropositive element to electronegative element.

.In the formation sodium chloride, sodium losses one electron to chlorine. Sodium therefore becomes positively charged while chlorine becomes negatively charged. The two ions(sodium and chloride ions) now become stable. The positively charged sodium ion attracts the negatively charged chloride ion to form sodium chloride thus Na+ +Cl NaCl. This is illustrated below.


Formation of Sodium Chloride (Common Salt). (ii) Covalency is the formation covalent compounds from electronegative elements resulting from the sharing of electrons to form a weak bond know n as covalent bond.

The compounds or molecules formed due to covalency are usually in liquid or gaseous state. For example, during the formation of water electrons are shared between hydrogen molecule and oxygen atom. Since oxygen has six electrons in its outermost shell while each hydrogen atom has only one electron in its outermost shell, the two-hydrogen atoms bond with each of the lone pair electrons in the oxygen atom covalently. This means that the six electrons in the outermost shell oxygen will combine with two electrons from the two hydrogen atoms by sharing electrons to form a stable water molecule which exists as a covalent compound with covalent bond between the oxygen and hydrogen molecules as illustrated below.

Formation of water molecule.

Other examples of covalent molecules include hydrogen chloride, oxygen, ammonia, glucose and ethanol molecules.

Formation of hydrogen molecule

Formation of chlorine molecule

(d) Difference between covalent and ionic compounds

Covalent compounds 1-poor conductors of 2- Poor conductors of electricity 3-Do not appear in crystalline form 4-Exis in liquid or gaseous form 5-Insoluble in water 6-Low melting point 7-Attractyive force3 between the molecules is weak 8-Low boiling point

Ionic compounds 1- Good conductors of heat 2-Good conductors of electricity in molten form 3-Appear in crystalline form 4- Exist mostly in solid form 5-soluble in water 6-High melting point 7- Attractive force between the molecules is strong 8-High boiling point

(e)Dative bond is a special type of covalent bond, which also involves the sharing of electron, but the electron shared comes from one atom or molecule. For example, ammonia, (NH3) is formed when electrons are shared between nitrogen atom and hydrogen molecules as shown below.

However, during the formation of ammonium compound, electrons are, as well shared between nitrogen atom and hydrogen molecules. The electrons shared were donated by hydrogen but they come from an acid usually hydrogen sulphate(vi) acid (H2SO4). This is represented thus.

Formation of ammonium The arrows indicate the direction of electrons. It is a typical example dative bond otherwise called co-ordinate covalent bond.

The Avogadros constant is measured at 6.02x1023. the relative atomic mass of element or compound expressed in grammes is also referred to as the mole. Based on this, one mole of NaCl will be 58.8 grammes. (c) Using morality=concentration x Molar mass But n =m/ where mass = 10g Volume = 1000cm3 =1 dm3 M(NaCl) = 58.5 Therefore n = 10/58.5 =0.20Mol Calculating concentration using C =n/v = 0.20/1g/dm Therefore Molality 0.20 x 58.5 = 1.17 Mol

(d) Concentration is defined as the quantity of solution measured in grammes or moles, which dissolved in 1000cm3 of solution. It is defined as the molality over the molar mass of substances. It is the mass of a solute dissolved in 1kg of the solvent. (e) (i) A saturated solution is a solution which contains the maximum amount of solute it can dissolve at that particular time and temperature. If more solute is added to a saturated solution, it will not dissolve in it again but may be seen as precipitates in the solution. (ii) The super-saturated solution contains excess solute than it can dissolve at that particular time and temperature. The solute may be seen completely dissolved.

However, if the solution is shaken, precipitates of the excess undissolved solute will be seen. The precipitates will disappear if the solution is allowed to stand for some time.

(d) Pure air is pumped into a plant and carbon (iv) oxide removed by passing it over caustic soda. Water vapour is also removed with H2SO4. The Air is repeatedly compressed and cooled before it is repeatedly [passed through a jet into very large chamber. It is then cooled by expansion until the air reaches a temperature of 200o C. At this temperature, the air now liquid. The liquid air is passed through fractionating chamber where it undergoes fractional distillation. During this process, nitrogen and oxygen are separated at 196oC and - 183Oc respectively and each collected through a condenser. This is because nitrogen boils at 196oC while oxygen boils at 183oC. The sketch on the next page will illustrate the entire process.

a) b) c) d) e)

Define hardness of Name two types of water hardness and their causes How will you remove (i) temporary hardness (ii) permanent hardness Explain the various possible processes used in water purification Define and describe water cycle.

ANSWER a) Hardness of water is the inability of water to easily lather with soap due to the presence of salts of calcium or/and Magnesium or/Calcium hydrogen trioxocarbonate (iv) in the water.

b) Types of water hardness are (i) Temporary hardness which is caused by the presence of calcium hydrogen trioxocarbonate (iv) i.e. Ca(HCO3)2 (ii) permanent hardness is caused by magnesium and calcium salts e. g MgSO4, MgCl2, CaSO4, CaCl2. c) (i) temporary hardness is removed by boiling and addition of calcium hydroxide thus Ca(HCO3)2 Heat CaCO3 +H2O + CO2 (for boiling) Ca(HCO3) + Ca(OH)2 aq 2 CaCO3(s) +H2O (ii) permanent hardness is removed by any of the following processes 1.

Distilation 3. Addition of trioxocarbonate (iv) thus Na2CO3 + CaSO4 Caco3 + Na2SO4 d) Water is purified by (iv) Filtration, (ii) Boiling (iv) Industrially . During filtration, white cloth is used to cover the mouth of a pot. For example, the impure water is poured on the cloth and allowed to filter through into the pot. The residue remains on top of the cloth. This is illustrated in the next page.

Distillation of water is a method of water purification. It involves heating, evaporation and condensation of pure water.

The impure water in the flat bottom flask evaporates when heated up to 100Oc. It then passes through the condenser, which cools and liquefies it. The water now drops into flask in a very pure form. The residues in the impure water ate left behind in the bottom flask.

Boiling is one of the ways of purifying water. Boiling kills the micro-organisms and other aquatic flora and fauna. These organisms and the other impurities settle under bottom of the container when alum is added thereby leaving the top water pure. Industrial purification of water is complex and involves many processes. It involves pumping the water from a source through strainers into a sedimentation tank where may be added to enhance sedimentation. The water leaves for the chlorination from the filtration tank. Here, chlorine is added to kill micro-organisms and also to bleach the water before it is pumped into the storage tank for distribution to the general public. The diagram below illustrates the water purification plant.

e) Water cycle is the process through which water is gained and lost to the atmosphere. The processes involved are complex. Water is lost into the atmosphere from sea, rivers, lakes, homes and industries by evaporation. Plants also release water to the atmosphere by transpiration. However, water is lost from the atmosphere by rainfall after condensation of the evaporated water. Man and other animals may urinate and release water to the ground. All these waters accumulate to form underground or surface water, which may be lost again to the atmosphere by evaporation. This departure of the water the atmosphere and its subsequent return is known as water cycle. This is illustration in the next page

QUESTIONS 19 a) b) c) d) e) What are the conditions for force to exhibit a turning effect on a body? Explain the moment of a force What is a lever? Give examples State the factors that determine a body`s state of equilibrium. Calculate X in the diagram below.

The conditions for a force to exhibit turning effect are a) The magnitude of the force and the distance between the line of action of force And the turning point must be equal. The clockwise moment must be equal to the anticlockwise moment. The sum of the downward force must be equal to the sum of the upward force. This is the law of moment. b) The moment of a force is the turning effect of the force. It is the product of the magnitude of the force and the distance between the line of action of force and the turning point. Therefore, the moment of a force depends on the magnitude and the distance.
