a) 0.07 min^{-1}

b) 0.06 min^{-1}

c) 0.08 min^{-1}

d) 0.09 min^{-1}

View Answer

Explanation: Given, the reaction is 70 percent complete so, a = 70

Time t = 20 minutes

First order integrated rate equation, k = \(\frac{2.303}{t}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-a}\)

k= \(\frac{2.303}{20}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-70}\) = 0.06 min

^{-1}.

b) 69.28 minutes

c) 50.37 minutes

d) 65.97 minutes

View Answer

Explanation: Given, the reaction is 75 complete so, a=75

Rate of the reaction k=0.023 min

^{-1}

First-order integrated rate equation, k = \(\frac{2.303}{t}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-a}\)

t=\(\frac{2.303}{0.023}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-75}\) = 60.28 minutes.

13. For the reaction X → Y + Z, the rate constant is 0.00058 s^{-1}. What percentage of X will be decomposed in 50 minutes?

a) 90.02 percent

b) 82.44 percent

c) 88.82 percent

d) 82.67 percent

View Answer

Explanation: Given, rate constant k= 0.00058 s

^{-1}

Time t= 50 minutes = 50 × 60 = 3000 seconds

First-order integrated rate equation, k = \(\frac{2.303}{t}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-a}\)

log\(\frac{100}{100-a}\) = \(\frac{kt}{2.303}\)

log\(\frac{100}{100-a}\) = \(\frac{0.00058 \times 3000}{2.303}\) = 0.756

a=82.44 percent.

14. What is the time required for 75 percent completion of a first-order reaction?

a) 3 × t_{50}

b) 4 × t_{50}

c) 4.5 × t_{50}

d) 2 × t_{50}

View Answer

Explanation: Given, the reaction is 75 percent complete so, a = 75

We know, t = \(\frac{2.303}{k}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-a}\)

T

_{75}= \(\frac{2.303}{k}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-75}\) = \(\frac{1.386}{k}\)

t

_{50}= \(\frac{2.303}{k}\)log\(\frac{100}{100-50}\) = \(\frac{0.693}{k}\)

t

_{75}= 2 × t

_{50}.

15. A first-order reaction is 50 percent complete in 30 minutes. Calculate the time taken for completion of 87.5 percent of the reaction.

a) 30 minutes

b) 60 minutes

c) 90 minutes

d) 120 minutes

View Answer

Explanation: Reaction is 50 percent complete in 30 minutes. Hence, t

_{1/2}= 30 minutes

75 percent of the reaction is completed in two half-lives. Hence, t = 2 × 30 = 60 minutes

87.5 percent of the reaction is completed in three half-lives. Hence, t = 3 × 30 = 90 minutes.
