Answer: 120 Page 4 of 6 Name:_________________________________________ (30 pts) Consider the following reactions that you encountered in the laboratory: 2.) I) 1 C6H12O6 (s) + 6 O2 (g) II) 2 NaN3 (s) 6 H2O (l) + 6 CO2 (g) 2 Na (s) + 3 N2 (g) a) Balance the reactions by writing the coefficients in the spaces provided above. b) One mole of each of the reactants in reaction I is placed in a baggie. Which is the limiting reactant? Explain. Explanation: 6 moles of O2 are required to react with 1 mole C6H12O6 c) Answer: O2 What mass of water is produced by the reaction in part b)? Answer: 18 g d) Separate baggies are prepared for reactions I and II with 1 mole of each of the reactants. Plot the baggie volume versus time for each of the reactions. (note: you may neglect the volume of the solids and liquids and assume that a mole of gas occupies a volume of 22.4 L) e) Explain why reaction II is better suited than reaction I for automobile airbags. Explanation: Reaction 2 produces more gas per mole of reactant. Page 5 of 6 Name:_________________________________________ Electron Kinetic Energy (15 pts) 3.) Consider the following plot depicting the photoelectric effect for Mg metal: Mg υ 0 a) υo (7.25 x 1014 Hz) Will yellow light (600 nm) eject electrons from Mg? Explain. Explanation: ν = c /=λ = 5 x 1014 Hz (for λ = 600 nm) 5 x 1014 Hz < 7.25 x 1014 Hz Answer: No b) Draw a line on the plot above for Cs metal which has a work function (Φ) equal to one half of the work function of Mg. c) If 1.00 x 1015 Hz light is used, electrons from which metal will have a longer de Broglie wavelength, Mg or Cs?
