Read the paragraph and answer the questions (18 – 20) given below:


Carbene is an important intermediate and can be formed in many reactions. One of these is             elimination of gem dihalide by active metal. Carbon is divalent in carbene and highly reactive. The two non–bonding electrons decide the shape and the bond angle of this intermediate. One of these is called singlet carbene (single orientation in magnetic field) and other is called triplet carbene (three orientations in magnetic field). Carbon of carbene is electron deficient and will try to get stabilized by reactions such as insertion reactions in alkanes and cyclo–addition reactions in alkenes.

K2Cr2O7 is good oxidising agent in acidic medium.

In alkaline solution, orange colour of  changes to yellow colour due to formation of  and again yellow colour changes to orange colour in acid medium.

Then  and  exist in equilibrium are interconvertable by altering pH of solution. When heated with H2SO4 and soluble chloride K2Cr2O7 gives vapours of CrO2Cl2. CrO2Cl2 when passed into aqueous NaOH solution yellow colour solution of  is obtained. This on reaction with lead acetate gives yellow ppt of PbCrO4.

When H2O2 is added to an acidified solution of dichromate ion a complicated reaction occurs. The products depend on the pH and concentration of Cr.

Read the paragraph and answer the questions (27 – 29) given below:


Volumetric titrations involving KMnO4 are carried out only in presence of dilute H2SO4 but not in the presence of HCl or HNO3. This is because oxygen produced from KMnO4 + dil. H2SO4 is used only for oxidizing the reducing agent. Moreover, H2SO4 does not give any oxygen of its own to oxidize the reducing agent. In case HCl is used, the oxygen produced from KMnO4 + HCl is partly used up to oxidize HCl and in case HNO3 is used, it itself acts as oxidizing agent and partly oxidizes the reducing agent. KMnO4 in various mediums gives following products–

Numerical Based Questions


  1. Calculate the amount of propene (in g) formed from 34 g of 1-iodo propane by reaction with alcoholic KOH if yield is 36%. Give your answer upto two decimal points.

170 g of 1-iodo propane gives = 42 g of propene.

34 g of 1-iodo propane gives

= 8.4 g if yield is 100%

Since yield is 36%

Amount of propene formed

= 3.024 g

  1. 3.02


  1. It required 0.7 g of hydrocarbon (A) to react completely with 2.0 g of Br2. On treatment of ‘A’ with HBr it gave monobromo alkane (B). The same compound (B) was obtained when (A) was treated with HBr in presence of peroxide. Calculate the molecular weight of ‘B’ (in g mol1).
  2. 137
  3. 2.0 g of Br2 requires = 0.7 g of hydrocarbon

160 g of Br2 requires

The hydrocarbon ‘A’ is C4H8, i.e. butene.

Since, it gives same product with HBr in presence as well as absence of peroxide, therefore, it is But-2-ene


The molecular weight of 2-bromobutane is C4H9Br(4 × 12 + 9 + 80) = 48 + 9 + 80 = 137 g mol-1


  1. The H–O-H, bond angle in water molecule is 105°, the H–O bond distance being 0.94. The dipole moment for the molecule is 1.85 D. The charge on the oxygen atom [cos 105° = – 0.258] is ……………………. ´ 1010 esu cm. Give your answer upto two decimal points
  2. 3.23

Since, H2O has two vectors of

O–H bond acting at 105°, let dipole moment of O–H be ‘a’


1.52´1018 =0.94´108

d = 1.617´1010 esu

Since ‘O’ atom acquires 2d  charges. One d charge from each bond. Thus charge on ‘O’ atom
= 2d
