5). If the enthalpy change of a process is positive and the entropy change is negative, the free energy change is: (2 pts) a. spontaneous b. non-spontaneous c. zero d. temperature dependent e. exergonic See Table 1-3 in the book Δ G = Δ H – T Δ S = (+) – T(–) = +, non-spontaneous at all temperatures 6). What is the pH of a 0.005 M HCl solution? (Hydrochloric acid completely dissociates in H 2 O) (2 pts) a. 7.005 b. 2.3 c. 5.3 d. 0.5 e. 0.005 pH = –log[H+], [H+]=0.005M, pH=2.3 7). What is the pH of a 0.00005 M NaOH solution? (Sodium hydroxide completely dissociates in H 2 O) (2 pts) a. 7.0 b. 11.7 c. 5.0 d. 22.3 e. 9.7 pH = –log[H+], Kw=[H+][HO-]=1.0x10 -14 =[H+](0.00005); [H+]=2x10 -10 pH=-log(2x10 -10 ), pH=9.7 8). The enthalpy change ( Δ H) for a reaction is –6.5 kJ/mol and the entropy change ( Δ S) is 4.5 cal/mol/K, what is the free energy ( Δ G) for the reaction in kJ/mol at 298K? (2 pts) a. –12.11 kJ/mol b. -6.50 kJ/mol c. –0.89 kJ/mol d. 18.83 kJ/mol e. Is not spontaneous Δ G = Δ H – T Δ S = –6.5 kJ/mol – 298K(4.5 cal/mol/K*4.184 kJ/kcal / (1000 J/kJ)) = –12.11 kJ/mol
9). What is the pH of a 1L solution that has 250mL of 0.5 M NaOH? (2 pts) a. 13.8 b. 13.1 c. 7.0 d. 0.5 e. neutral pH = –log [H+] [HO-] = (0.250L)(0.5M)/1L = 0.125M; [H+] = 1x10 -14 /[HO-] = 1x10 -14 M 2 /0.125M = 8.0x10 -14 M pH = –log [H+] = –log (8.0x10 -14 ) = 13.1 10). Calculate the pH of a 1L solution containing 100mL of 2M acetic acid and 300mL of 3M sodium acetate? The pKa of acetic acid is 4.76. (2 pts) a. 7.00 b. 5.41 c. 4.46 d. 4.76 e. 11.76 Acetic acid: (0.10L)(2M)/1L = 0.20M Acetate: (0.30L)(3M)/1L) = 0.90M pH = pKa + log([acetate]/[acetic acid]) = 4.76 + log(0.90/0.20) = 4.76 + (0.65) = 5.41
