Unformatted text preview: kadamati (skk558) H02: Solutions Mccord (52450) 1 This print-out should have 14 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points Dissociation of a solid is aided by 1. strong interaction between solvent molecules. 2. None of these is correct. 3. strong binding in the solid and weak solvent-solute interaction. 4. weak binding of species in the solid and strong interactions between the solvent and solute. correct Explanation: Weak intermolecular forces in the solute facilitate separation of its particles and strong attractive forces between solute and solvent facilitate dissociation of a solid. 002 10.0 points Some distilled water is added to an empty beaker. A gram of copper(II) nitrate is added to the beaker with stirring. After a few min- utes, what is in the beaker? 1. solid copper, nitrate ions, and water 2. a sticky material of copper hydronitrite 3. copper ions, nitrate ions, and water cor- rect 4. nitrogen gas, copper atoms, electrons, and water 5. solid copper(II) nitrate and water Explanation: All nitrates are soluble in water, so the cop- per(II) nitrate dissolves. Soluble ionic com- pounds are strong electrolytes, so the cop- per(II) nitrate also dissociates into its cation and anion parts: Cu + 2 and NO 3 . 003 10.0 points Both ammonia and phosphine (PH 3 ) are sol- uble in water. Which is least soluble and why? 1. ammonia; the N- H bonds are so strong that they cannot break to enable the ammonia to hydrogen-bond with water. 2. phosphine; the P- H bonds are so strong that they cannot break to enable phosphine to hydrogen-bond with water. 3. ammonia; it is too small to be hydrated by water molecules. 4. ammonia; it does not form hydrogen bonds with water molecules....
