The oxides of the elements in the third period of the periodic table show a trend in acidbase properties going across the period. Choose specific examples of three oxides, one basic, one amphoteric and one acidic, then use examples to illustrate the trend, writing balanced equations for any chemical reactions involved. 4. When 2.5 g zinc is dissolved in excess sulfuric acid, what volume of hydrogen (measured at 273K and 101.3kPa pressure) is formed? 5. Blood normally has a pH of 7.4 (a) Calculate the [H+] of blood (b) Describe, with equations, the process of acidosis in the blood. 6. When iron pyrites (FeS2), an ore of iron, is roasted in oxygen, the following reaction occurs 4FeS2(s) + 11O2(g ) → 8SO2(g) + 2Fe2O3(s) (a) What is the name for both products of the reaction? (b) What is the theoretical volume of SO2(g) at 25°C and 101.3 kPa that could be produced from 1.00 kg of pure pyrites?

The contact process is used to manufacture sulfuric acid i. ii. iii. iv. Outline the three main stages in the manufacture of sulfuric acid. 3 Sulfur is burnt in dry air to produce sulfur dioxide. Explain why the air must be dry for this step. 1 A catalyst is used in the process. Why is a catalyst used rather than a simply raising the temperature. 2 The process typically produces sulfuric acid of 98.5% w/w concentration. Given that the density of this acid is 1.8 g cm-3, calculate the molarity of the acid. 3 Discuss the conditions used for the contact process. Include the significance of temperature, pressure and catalyst. 3 Why is sulfuric acid regarded as the most important industrial acid. 2 v. vi. b. Chlorine and sodium hydroxide are produced by the electrolysis of saturated sodium chloride. Briefly outline the two different commercial methods that are used and write the anode and cathode reactions for each method. 6 i. ii. iii. Define the term saponification.
