**Question 1.**

**(i) Calculate the number of electrons which will together weigh one gram.**

**(ii) Calculate the mass and charge of one mole of electrons.**

**Answer:**

**(i)** Mass of an electron = 9.1 × 10^{-28} g

9.1 × 10^{-28} g is the mass of = 1 electron

**(ii)** One mole of electrons = 6.022 × 10^{23} electrons

Mass of 1 electron = 9.1 × 10^{-31} kg

Mass of 6.022 × 10^{23} electrons = (9.1 × 10.31kg) × (6.022 × 10^{23}) = 5.48 × 10^{-7} kg

Charge on one electron = 1.602 × 10^{-19} coulomb

Charge on one mole electrons = 1.602 × 10^{-19} × 6.022 × 10^{23} = 9.65 × 10^{4} coulombs

**Question 2.**

**(i) Calculate the total number of electrons present in one mole of methane.**

**(ii) Find (a) the total number and (b) the total mass of neutrons in 7 mg of ^{14}C. (Assume that mass of a neutron = 1.675 × 10^{-27}kg).**

**(iii) Find (a) the total number and (b) the total mass of protons in 34 mg of NH**

_{3}at STP.**Will the answer change if the temperature and pressure are changed ?**

**Answer:**

**(i)**One mole of methane (CH

_{4}) has molecules = 6.022 × 10

^{23}

_{4}= 6 + 4 = 10

No. of electrons present in 6.022 × 10

^{23}molecules of CH

_{4}= 6.022 × 10

^{23}× 10

= 6.022 × 10

^{24}electrons

**(ii)** **Step I.** Calculation of total number of carbon atoms

Gram atomic mass of carbon (C-14) = 14 g = 14 × 10^{3} mg

14 × 10^{3} mg of carbon (C-14) have atoms = 6.022 × 10^{23}

**Step II.** Calculation of total number and tatal mass of neutrons

No. of neutrons present in one atom (C-14) of carbon = 14 – 6 = 8

No. of neutrons present in 3-011 × 10^{20} atoms (C-14) of carbon = 3.011 × 10^{20} × 8

= 2.408 × 10^{21} neutrons

Mass of one neutron = 1.675 × 10^{-27} kg

Mass of 2.408 × 10^{21} neutrons = (1.675X10^{-27} kg) × 2.408 × 10^{21}

= 4.033 × 10^{-6} kg.

**(iii) Step I.** Calculation of total number ofNH_{3} molecules

Gram molecular mass of ammonia (NH_{3}) = 17 g = 17 × 10^{3} mg

17 × 10^{3} mg of NH_{3} have molecules = 6.022 × 10^{23}

**Step II.** Calculation of total number and mass of protons

No. of protons present in one molecule of NH_{3} = 7 + 3 = 10 .

No. of protons present in 12.044 × 10^{20} molecules of NH_{3} = 12.044 × 10^{20} × 10

= 1.2044 × 10^{22} protons

Mass of one proton = 1.67 × 10^{-27} kg

Mass of 1.2044 × 10^{22} protons = (1.67 × 10^{-27} kg) × 1.2044 × 10^{22}

= 2.01 × 10^{-5} kg.

No, the answer will not change upon changing the temperature and pressure because only the number of protons and mass of protons are involved.

**In Rutherford experiment, generally the thin foil of heavy atoms like gold, platinum etc. have been used to be bombarded by the a-particles. If a thin foil of light atoms like aluminium etc. is used, what difference would be observed from the above results?**

**Answer:**

We have studied that in Rutherford’s experiment by using heavy metals like gold and platinum, a large number of a-particles sufferred deflection while a very few had to retrace their path.

If a thin foil of lighter atoms like aluminium etc. be used in the Rutherford experiment, this means that the obstruction offered to the path of the fast moving a-particles will be comparatively quite less.

As a result, the number of a-particles deflected will be quite less and the particles which are deflected back will be negligible.

**Question 41.**

**Symbols \(_{ 35 }^{ 79 }{ Br }\) and ^{79}Br can be written whereas symbols \(_{ 79 }^{ 35 }{ Br }\) and _{35}Br are not accepted. Answer in brief.**

**Answer:**

In the symbol \(_{ A }^{ B }{ X }\) of an element :

A denotes the atomic number of the element

B denotes the mass number of the element.

The atomic number of the element can be identified from its symbol because no two elements can have the atomic number. However, the mass numbers have to be mentioned in order to identify the elements. Thus,

Symbols \(_{ 35 }^{ 79 }{ Br }\) and

^{79}Br are accepted because atomic number of Br will remain 35 even if not mentioned. Symbol \(_{ 79 }^{ 35 }{ Br }\) is not accepted because atomic number of Br cannot be 79 (more than the mass number = 35). Similarly, symbol 35Br cannot be accepted because mass number has to be mentioned. This is needed to differentiate the isotopes of an element.

**Question 42.**

**An element with mass number 81 contains 31.7% more neutrons as compared to protons. Assign the symbol to the element.**

**Answer:**

An element can be identified by its atomic number only. Let us find the atomic number.

Let the number of protons = x

Number of neutrons = x + [\(\frac { x\times 31.7 }{ 100 } \) = (x × 0.317x)

Now, Mass no. of element = no. of protons =no. neutrons

81 = x + x + 0-317 x = 2.317 x or x = \(\frac { 81 }{ 2.317 } \) = 35

∴ No. of protons = 35, No. of neutrons = 81 – 35 =46

Atomic number of element (Z) = No. of protons = 35

The element with atomic number (Z) 35 is bromine \(_{ 35 }^{ 81 }{ Br }\).

**Question 43.**

**An ion with mass number 37 possesses one unit of negative charge. If the ion contains 11 -1% more neutrons than the electrons, find the symbol of the ion.**

**Answer:**

Let the no. of electron in the ion = x

∴ the no. of protons = x – 1 (as the ion has one unit negative charge)

and the no. of neutrons = x + \(\frac { x\times 11.1 }{ 100 } \) = 1.111 x

Mass no. or mass of the ion = No. of protons + No. of neutrons

(x – 1 + 1.111 x)

Given mass of the ion = 37

∴ x- 1 + 1.111 x = 37 or 2.111 x = 37 + 1 = 38

x = \(\frac { 38 }{ 2.111 } \) = 18

No. of electrons = 18 ; No. of protons = 18 – 1 = 17

Atomic no. of the ion = 17 ; Atom corresponding to ion = Cl

Symbol of the ion = \(_{ 17 }^{ 37 }{ Cl }\)^{–}

**Question 44.**

**An ion with mass number 56 contains 3 units of positive charge and 30.4% more neutrons than electrons. Assign symbol to the ion.**

**Answer:**

Let the no. of electrons in the ion = x

∴ the no. of the protons = x + 3 (as the ion has three units positive charge)

and the no. of neutrons = x + \(\frac { x\times 31.7 }{ 100 } \) = xc + 0.304 x

Now, mass no. of ion = No. of protons + No. of neutrons

= (x + 3) + (x + 0.304x)

∴ 56 = (x + 3) + (x + 0.304x) or 2.304x = 56 – 3 = 53

x = \(\frac { 53 }{ 2.304 } \) = 23

Atomic no. of the ion (or element) = 23 + 3 = 26

The element with atomic number 26 is iron (Fe) and the corresponding ion is Fe^{3+}.

**Answer:**

**Question 49.**

**Life times of the molecules in the excited states are often measured by using pulsed radiation source of duration nearly in the nano second range. If the radiation source has the duration of 2 ns and the number of photons emitted during the pulse source is 2.5 x 10 ^{15}, calculate the energy of the source.**

**Answer:**

Time duration (t) = 2 ns = 2 x 10

^{-9}s

Energy of one photon, E = hv = (6.626 x 10

^{-34}Js) x (10

^{9}/2 s

^{-1}) = 3.25 x 10

^{-25}J

No. of photons = 2.5 x 10

∴ Energy of source = 3.3125 x 10

**III. Long Answer Type Questions**

**Question 1. (a) What is the limitations of Rutherford model of atoms?**

** (b) How has Bohr’s theory helped in calculating the energy of hydrogen electron in different energy levels?**

**Answer: (a) Limitations of Rutherford Model:**

(i) When a body is moving in an orbit, it achieves acceleration (even if body is moving with constant speed in an orbit, it achieves acceleration due to change in direction). So an electron moving around nucleus in an orbit is under acceleration. However, according to radiation theory of Maxwell, the charged particles when accelerated must emit energy as electromagnetic radiations. This means that the revolving electron must also lose energy continuously in the form of electromagnetic radiation. The loss of energy in revolution of the electron around the nucleus must bring it closer to the nucleus and the electron must ultimately fall into the nucleus by the spiral path. This means that the atom must collapse. But we all know that atom is quite stable in nature.

(ii) Rutherford’s model could not explain the existence of different spectral lines in the hydrogen spectrum.

(b) Based upon the postulates of Bohr’s theory, it is possible to calculate the energy of the hydrogen electron and also one electron species. (He^{+}, Li^{2+} etc.) The mathematical expression for the energy in the nth orbit is

**Question 2. Define atomic number, mass number and neutron. How are the three related to each other?**

**Answer: Atomic Number (Z):** The atomic number of an element is equal to the number of protons present inside the nucleus of its atoms.

Since, an isolated atom has no net charge on it, in neutral atoms, the total number of electrons is equal to its atomic number.

Atomic number (Z) = Number of protons in the nucleus of an atom = Number of electrons in the neutral atoms

**Mass Number (A):** The sum of the number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom is called its mass number. Mass number is denoted by A. Thus, for an atom, Mass number (A) = Number of protons (p) + Number of neutrons (n)

A = p + n

Neutron: It is neutral particle. It is present in the nucleus of an atom. Expect hydrogen (which contains only one electron and one proton but no neutron), the atoms of all other elements including isotopes of hydrogen contain all the three fundamental particles called neutron, proton and electron.

The relation between mass number, Atomic no. and no. of neutrons is given by the equation:

Where A = Mass number

Z = Atomic number n = Number of neutrons in the nucleus.

**Question 3. What were the weaknesses or limitations of Bohr’s model of atoms ? Briefly describe the quantum mechanical model of atom.**

**Answer:** **Limitations of Bohr’s model of an atom:**

- It could not explain spectrum of multi-electron atoms.
- It could not explain Zeeman and Stark effects.
- It could not explain shape of molecules.
- It was not in accordance with Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.

Quantum Mechanical Model: It was developed on the basis of Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and dual behaviour of matter.

**Main features of this model are given below :**

- The energy of electrons in an atom is quantized i.e. can only have certain values.
- The existence of quantized electronic energy levels is a direct result of the wave like properties of electrons.
- Both, the exact position and velocity of an electron in an atom cannot be determined simultaneously.
- The orbitals are filled in increasing order of energy. All the information about the electron in an atom is stored in orbital wave function Ψ.
- From the value of Ψ
^{2 }at different points within atom, it is possible to predict the region around the nucleus where electron most probably will be found.

**Question 4. State and explain the following:**

** (i) Aufbau principle**

** (ii) Pauli exclusion principle.**

** (iii) Hund’s rule of maximum multiplicity.**

**Answer: ** (i) Aufbau Principle: In the ground state of the atoms, the orbitals are filled in the order of their increasing energies. In other words, electrons first occupy the lowest-energy orbital available to them and enter into higher energy orbitals only after the lower energy orbitals are filled.

The order in which the energies of the orbitals increase and hence the order in which the orbitals are filled is as follows:

Is, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 4s, 3d, 4p, 5s, 4d, 5p, 6s, 4f, 5d, 6p, 7s, 5f, 6d,7p………………..

(ii) Pauli Exclusion Principle: An orbital can have maximum of two electrons and these must have opposite signs.

For example: Two electrons in an orbital can be represented by

The two electrons have opposite spin, if one is revolving clockwise, the other is revolving anticlockwise or vice versa.

(iii) Hund’s Rule of Maximum Multiplicity: Electron pairing in p, d and/orbitals cannot occur until each orbital of a given subshell contains one electron each or is single occupied.

For example: For the element nitrogen which contains 7 electrons, the following configuration can be written.
