Short Answer Questions

Question 1
Convert into mole:
(i)12 g of oxygen gas
(ii)22 g of carbon dioxide


(i) Molar mass of oxygen gas = 32g/mole
So, 32 gm has 1 mole
Therefore 12 g will contain 12/32 = 3/8 mole
(ii)Molar mass of carbon dioxide = ( 12 + 2*16) = 44 g/mole
So, 44 gm has 1 mole
Therefore 22 g will contain 22/44 = .5 mole

Question 2
How many moles of AI atoms are needed to combine with 1.58 moles of O atoms to make aluminum oxide, AI2O3?


3 moles of Oxygen require = 4 moles of Al
1 mole of Oxygen require 4/3 moles of Al
1.58 mole moles of Al 4/3 x 1.58 = 2.10666

Question 3
What is the volume of 32 g of sulphur dioxide measured at STP?


Molar Mass of sulphur dioxide=32 + 2 *16=64
So, Moles in 32 grams of SO2 =32/64=0.5 moles
Now 1 mole= 22.4 litres at STP so 0.5 mole= 11.2 litres.

Question 4
How many grams of sodium will have the same number of atoms as 6 grams of magnesium? (Na = 23, Mg = 24).


24 g of Mg has 1 mole
So, 6 gm of Mg has .25 mole
Now 1 mole of Na is 23 g
.25 mole of Na will have .5*23=11.5 g

Question 5
How many grams of Chromium (molar mass Cr = 52 g/mol) are there in 85 g of Cr2S3?


Molecular mass of Cr2S3 =2*52+3*32=104+96=200 g/mol
200 g of Cr2S3 contains 104 g of Cr.
85 g of Cr2S3 contains $\frac {104}{200} \times85$ g of Cr = 44.2 g

Question 6
Which has more number of atoms: 100 grams of sodium or 100 grams of iron (Given atomic mass of Na = 23 u and Fe = 56 u)


Moles of Na=100/23
Moles of Fe=100/56
Therefore More atoms of Na

Question 7
A compound of nitrogen and oxygen has the formula NO. In this compound, there are 1.143 g of oxygen for each 1.000g of nitrogen. A different compound of nitrogen and oxygen has the formula NO2. How many grams of oxygen would be combined with each 1.000g of nitrogen in NO2?


The ratio mean that for nitrogen monoxide (NO), for every 1 g of nitrogen, there is 1.143 g of oxygen.
For nitrogen dioxide (NO2),we have 1 N combining with 2 O
Therefore 1 1 g of nitrogen will combine with 2.286 g of oxygen.

Question 8
How many moles of nitrogen atoms are combined with 8.60 mol of oxygen atoms in dinitrogen pentoxide, N2O5
Question 9
Calculate the volume occupied by 2.8 g of N2 at STP.


28g of Nitrogen gas at STP occupies 22.4 litre
2.8 g of Nitrogen gas at STP occupies 2.24 litre

Question 10
How much weight of carbon dioxide is present in same volume which is occupied by 4.0 grams of oxygen? Volumes are measured at normal temperature and pressure. (NTP)
Question 11
What is the mass of 0.5 mole of water (H2O). (Atomic masses: H = 1u, O = 16u)


1 mol of H2O weight 18g
.5 mol of H2O weight 9g

Question 12
How many moles of sulphur atoms and oxygen atoms are present in one mole each of H2SO4, H2O3 and SO2?
Question 13
What is the percentage composition of the elements in ammonia, NH3? (at. Mass: H = 1, = 14)
Question 14
Calculate the theoretical percentage composition of N2O3.
Question 15
10 gram of CaCO3 on heating gave 4.4g of CO2 and 5.6g of CaO. Show that these observations are in agreement with the law of conservation.
Question 16
In which of the following, the number of hydrogen atoms is more:
(a) 3 moles of H2O
(b)10 moles of HCI


3 moles of H2O
contains 6 mol of hydrogen atoms
10 moles of HCI contains 10 mol of hydrogen atoms
So answer is 10 moles of HCI

Question 17
If we decompose 50g of water by passing electricity through it, how many grams of oxygen and hydrogen we obtain?
Question 18
Hydrogen and oxygen combine I the ratio of 1: 8 by mass to form water. What mass of oxygen gas would be required to react completely with 3g of hydrogen gas?
Question 19
Calculate the number of molecules in 32 grams of oxygen gas and 14 grams of nitrogen.
Question 20
Calculate the mass of a sample of iron metal that would contain 0.250 moles of iron atoms.
Question 21
Calculate the number of atoms in a 0.123-gram sample of aluminium foil.
