2. Answer the following in one or two sentences.

Question i.
Comment on the statement: No work is involved in an expansion of a gas in vacuum.
Answer:
(1) When a gas expands against an external pressure Pex, changing the volume from V1 to V2, the work obtained is given by
W = -Pex (V2 – V1).
(2) Hence the work is performed by the system when it experiences the opposing force or pressure.
(3) Greater the opposing force, more is the work.
(4) In free expansion, the gas expands in vaccum where it does not experience opposing force, (P = 0). Since external pressure is zero, no work is obtained.
∴ W = -Pex (V2 – V1)
= -0 × (V2 – V1)
= 0
(5) Since during expansion in vacuum no energy is expended, it is called free expansion.

Question ii.
State the first law of thermodynamics.
Answer:
The first law of thermodynamics is based on the principle of conservation of energy and can be stated in different ways as follows :

  1. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, however, it may be converted from one form into another.
  2. Whenever, a quantity of one kind of energy is consumed or disappears, an equivalent amount of another kind of energy appears.
  3. The total mass and energy of an isolated system remain constant, although there may be interconservation of energy from one form to another.
  4. The total energy of the universe remains constant.

Question iii.

Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics

Question v.
State whether ∆S is positive, negative or zero for the reaction 2H(g) → H2(g). Explain.
Answer:
(i) The given reaction, 2H(g) → H2(g) is the formation of H2(g) from free atoms.
(ii) Since two H atoms form one H2 molecule, ∆n = 1 – 2= -1 and disorder is decreased. Hence entropy change ∆S < 0 (or negative).

Question vi.
State second law of thermodynamics in terms of entropy.
Answer:
The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of the system and its surroundings (universe) increases in a spontaneous process.
OR
Since all the natural processes are spontaneous, the entropy of the universe increases.
It is expressed mathematically as
∆ STotal = ∆ Ssystem + ∆Ssurr > 0
∆ SUniverse = ∆ Ssystem + ∆ Ssurr > 0

Question vii.
If the enthalpy change of a reaction is ∆H how will you calculate entropy of surroundings?
Answer:
(i) For endothermic reaction, ∆H > 0. This shows the system absorbs heat from surroundings.
∴ ∆surr H < 0.
∵ Entropy change = ∆surr S = −Δsurr HT
There is decrease in entropy of surroundings.
(ii) For exothermic reaction, ∆H < 0, hence for surroundings, ∆surr H > 0

∴ ∆surr > 0.

Question viii.
Comment on spontaneity of reactions for which ∆H is positive and ∆S is negative.
Answer:
Since ∆H is +ve and ∆S is -ve, ∆G will be +ve at all temperatures. Hence reactions will be non-spontaneous at all temperatures.

3. Answer in brief.

Question i.
Obtain the relationship between ∆G° of a reaction and the equilibrium constant.
Answer:
Consider following reversible reaction, aA + bB ⇌ cC + dD
The reaction quotient Q is,
Q = [C]c×[D]d[ A]a×[B]b
The free energy change ∆G for the reaction is ∆G = ∆G° + RT in Q
Where ∆G° is the standard free energy change.
At equilibrium
Q = [C]ce×[D]de[ A]ae×[B]be=K
∴ ∆G = ∆G° + RT In K
∵ at equilibrium ∆G = 0
∴ 0 = AG° + RT In K
∴ ∆G° = -RT In K
∴ ∆G°= -2.303 RT log10K.

Question ii.
What is entropy? Give its units.
Answer:
(i) Entropy : Being a state function and thermodynamic function it is defined as entropy change (∆S) of a system in a process which is equal to the amount of heat transferred in a reversible manner (Qrev) divided by the absolute temperature (T), at which the heat is absorbed. Thus,
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 2
(ii) Units of entropy are JK-1 in SI unit and cal K-1 in c.g.s. units. It is also expressed in terms of entropy unit (e.u.). Hence 1 e.u. = 1 JK-1.
(iii) Entropy is a measure of disorder in the system. Higher the disorder, more is entropy of the system.

Question iii.
How will you calculate reaction enthalpy from data on bond enthalpies?
Answer:
(i) In chemical reactions, bonds are broken in the reactant molecules and bonds are formed in the product molecules.
(ii) Energy is always required to break a chemical bond while energy is always released in the formation of the bond.
(iii) The enthalpy change of a gaseous reactions (ΔfH0) involving substances with covalent bonds can be calculated with the help of bond enthalpies of reactants and products. (In case of solids we need lattice energy or heat of sublimation while in case of liquids we need heat of evaporation.)
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 3
If the energy required to break the bonds of reacting molecules is more than the energy released in the bond formation of the products, then the reaction will be endothermic and ∆H0 reaction will be positive. On the other hand if the energy released in the bond formation of the products is more than the energy required to break the bonds of reacting molecules then the reaction will be exothermic and ∆H0 reaction will be negative.

Question iv.
What is the standard enthalpy of combustion ? Give an example.
Answer:
Standard enthalpy of combustion or standard heat of combustion : it is defined as the enthalpy change when one mole of a substance in the standard state undergoes complete combustion in a sufficient amount of oxygen at constant temperature (298 K) and pressure (1 atmosphere or 1 bar). It is denoted by ∆cH0.
E.g. CH3OH(l) + 32 O2(g) = CO2(g) + 2H2O
cH0= -726 kJ mol-1
(∆cH0 is always negative.)
[Note : Calorific value : It is the enthalpy change or amount of heat liberated when one gram of a substance undergoes combustion.

Answer:
Enthalpy of atomisation (∆atomH) : it is the enthalpy change accompanying the dissociation of one mole of gaseous substance into its atoms at constant temperature and pressure.
For example : CH4(g) → C(g) + 4H(g) ∆atomH = 1660 kJ mol-1

Question vi.
Obtain the expression for work done in chemical reaction.
Answer:
Consider n1 moles of gaseous reactants A of volume V1 change to n2 moles of gaseous products B of volume V2 at temperature T and pressure P.
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 5
In the initial state, PV1 = n1RT
In the final state, PV2 = n2RT
PV2 – PV1 = n2RT – n1RT = (n2 – n1)RT = ∆nRT
where ∆n is the change in number of moles of gaseous products and gaseous reactants.
Due to net changes in gaseous moles, there arises change in volume against constant pressure resulting in mechanical work, -P∆V.
∴ W = -P∆V = -P(V2 – V1) = – ∆nRT
(i) If n1 – n2, ∆n = 0, W = 0. No work is performed.
(ii) If n2 > n1, ∆n > 0, there is a work of expansion by the system and W is negative.
(iii) If n2 < n1, ∆n < 0, there is a work of compression, hence work is done on the system and W is positive.

Question vii.
Derive the expression for PV work.
Answer:
Consider a certain amount of an ideal gas enclosed in an ideal cylinder fitted with massless, frictionless rigid movable piston at pressure P, occupying volume V1 at temperature T.
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 6
Fig. 4.8 : Work of expansion
As the gas expands, it pushes the piston upward through a distance d against external force F, pushing the surroundings.
The work done by the gas is,
W = opposing force × distance = -F × d
-ve sign indicates the lowering of energy of the system during expansion.
If a is the cross section area of the cylinder or piston, then,
W = −Fa × d × a
Now the pressure is Pex = Fa
while volume change is, ΔV = d × a
∴ W = -Pex × ΔV
If during the expansion, the volume changes from V1 and V2 then, ΔV = V2 – V1
∴ W= -Pex(V2 – V1)
During compression, the work W is +ve, since the energy of the system is increased,
W = +Pex(V2 – V1)

Question viii.
What are intensive properties? Explain why density is intensive property.
Answer:
(A) Intensive property : It is defined as a property of a system whose magnitude is independent of the amount of matter present in the system.
Explanation :

  1. Intensive property is characteristic of the system, e.g., refractive index, density, viscosity, temperature, pressure, boiling point, melting point, freezing point of a pure liquid, surface tension, etc.
  2. The intensive properties are not additive.

(B) Density is a ratio of two extensive properties namely, mass and volume. Since the ratio of two extensive properties represents an intensive property, density is an intensive property. It does not depend on the amount of a substance.

Question ix.

4. Answer the following questions.

Question i.
Derive the expression for the maximum work.
Answer:
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 7
Consider n moles of an ideal gas enclosed in an ideal cylinder fitted with a massless and frictionless movable rigid piston. Let V be the volume of the gas at a pressure P and a temperature T.
If in an infinitesimal change pressure changes from P to P – dP and volume increases from V to V + dV. Then the work obtained is, dW = -(P-dP) dV
= -PdV + dPdV
Since dP.dV is negligibly small relative to PdV
dW= -PdV
Let the state of the system change from A(P1, L1) to B (P2, V2) isothermally and reversibly, at temperature T involving number of infinitesimal steps.
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 8
Then the total work or maximum work in the process is obtained by integrating above equation.
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 9
At constant temperature,
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 10
where n, P, V and T represent number of moles, pressure, volume and temperature respectively. For the process,
ΔU = 0, ΔH = 0.
The heat absorbed in reversible manner
Qrev, is completely converted into work.
Qrev = -Wmax.
Hence work obtained is maximum.

Question ii.
Obtain the relatioship between ∆H and ∆U for gas phase reactions.
Answer:
Consider a reaction in which n1 moles of gaseous reactant in initial state change to n2 moles of gaseous product in the final state.
Let H1, U1, P1, V1 and H2, U2, P2, V2 represent enthalpies, internal energies, pressures and volumes in the initial and final states respectively then,
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 11
The heat of reaction is given by enthalpy change ΔH as,
ΔH = H2 – H1
By definition, H = U + PV
∴ H1 = U1 + P1V1 and H2 = U2+ P2V2
∴ ΔH = (U2 + P2V2) – (U1 + P1V1)
= (U2 – U1) + (P2V2 – P1V1)
Now, ΔU = U2 – U1
Since PV = nRT,
For initial state, P1V1= n1RT
For final state, P2V2 = n2RT
∴ P2V2 – P1V1 = n2RT – n1RT
= (n2 – n1) RT
= ΔnRT
where Δn
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 12
∴ ΔH = ΔU + ΔnRT
If QP and QV are the heats involved in the reaction at constant pressure and constant volume respectively, then since QP = ΔH and QV = ΔU.
∴ QP = QV = ΔnRT

Question iii.
State Hess’s law of constant heat summation. Illustrate with an example. State its applications.
Answer:
Statement of law of constant heat summation : It states that, the heat of a reaction or the enthalpy change in a chemical reaction depends upon initial state of reactants and final state of products and independent of the path by which the reaction is brought about (i.e. in single step or in series of steps).
OR

Question iv.
Although ∆S for the formation of two moles of water from H2 and O2 is -327 JK-1, it is spontaneous. Explain. (Given ∆H for the reaction is -572 kJ).
Answer:
Given : ΔS= -327 JK-1; ΔH = -572 kJ
ΔG = ΔH – TΔS, and ΔH << ΔS
∴ ΔG < 0, and hence the formation of H2O(l) is spontaneous.

Question v.
Obtain the relation between ∆G and ∆STotal. Comment on spontaneity of the reaction.
Answer:
(i) Gibbs free energy, G is defined as,
G = H – TS
where H is the enthalpy, S is the entropy of the system at absolute temperature T.
Since H, T and S are state functions, G is a state function and a thermodynamic function.

(ii) At constant temperature and pressure, change in free energy ΔG for the system is represented as, ∆G = ∆H – T∆S
Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 14
This is called Gibbs free energy equation for ∆G. In this ∆S is total entropy change, i.e., ∆STotal.

(iii) The SI units of ∆G are J or kJ (or Jmol-1 or kJmol-1).
The c.g.s. units of ∆G are cal or kcal (or cal mol-1 or kcal mol-1.)

The second law explains the conditions of spontaneity as below :
(i) ∆Stotal > 0 and ∆G < 0, the process is spontaneous.
(ii) ∆Stotal < 0 and ∆G > 0, the process is nonspontaneous.
(iii) ∆Stotal = 0 and ∆G = 0, the process is at equilibrium.

Question vi.
One mole of an ideal gas is compressed from 500 cm3 against a constant external pressure of 1.2 × 105 Pa. The work involved in the process is 36.0 J. Calculate the final volume.
Answer:
Given : V1 = 500 cm3 = 0.5 dm3;
Pex = 1.2 × 105 Pa = 1.2 bar; W= 36 J;
1 dm3 bar = 100 J; V2 = ?
W = -Pex (V2 – V1)
36 J = – 1.2 (V2 – 0.5) dm3 bar
= -1.2 × 100 (V2 – 0.5) J
∴ V2 – 0.5 = −361.2×100=−0.3
∴ V2 = 0.5 -0.3 = 0.2 dm3 = 200 cm3
Ans. Final volume = 200 cm3.

Answer:
NH44NO3(s) → N2O(g) + 2 H2O(g)
mNH4NO3 = 132 g; MNH4NO3 = 80 g mol-1
T = 273 + 100 = 373 K; Δn = ?
For the reaction,
Δn = Σn2 gaseous products – Σn1 gaseous reactants
= 3 – 0 = 3 mol
Since there is an increase in number of gaseous moles, the work is done by the system.
nNH4NO3 = mNH4NO3MNH4NO3
= 13280
= 1.65 mol
For 1 mol NH4NO3(s) Δn = 3 mol
∴ For 1.65 mol NH4NO3(s) Δn = 3 × 1.65 = 4.95 mol
W = -ΔnRT = -4.95 × 8.314 × 373
= – 15350 J

= 196 – 298 (-0.126)
= 196 + 37.55
= + 233.55 kJ
∵ ∆G0 > 0, the reaction is non-spontaneous.
∆H0 > 0, ∆S0 < 0,
Since at all temperatures, ∆G0 > 0, there is no cross over temperature.

Answer:
Given : Mass of ice = m = 180 g
T1 = 273 + 0 °C = 273 K
T2 = 273 + 100 °C = 373 K
fusH(ice) = ∆fusH(H2O)(s) = 6.01 kJ mol-1
vapHH2O(l) = 40.7 kJ mol-1
Specific heat of water = C = 4.18 J g-1 K-1

Maharashtra Board Class 12 Chemistry Solutions Chapter 4 Chemical Thermodynamics 19
(i) ∆H1 = ∆fusH = 10 mol × 6.01 kJ mol-1
= 60.1 kJ
(ii) When the temperature of water is raised from 0 °C to 100 °C (i.e., 273 K to 373 K), then
∆ H2 = m × C × ∆T
= m × C × (T2 – T1)
= 180 g × 4.18 Jg-1K-1 × (373 – 273) × 10-3 kJ = 75.24 kJ
∆ H3 = ∆vapH = 10 mol × 40.7 kJ mol-1 = 407 kJ
Hence total enthalpy change,
∆ HTotal = ∆H1 + ∆H2 + ∆H3
= 60.1 + 75.24 + 407
= 542.34 kJ
Ans. Total heat required = 542.34 kJ

is -620 J when 100 ml of ethylene and 100 mL of H2 react at 1 bar pressure. Calculate the pressure volume type of work and ∆U for the reaction.
Answer:
Given :
C2H4( g)+H2( g)⟶C2H6( g)100 mL100ml100ml
∆H = – 620 J; VC2H4 = 100 mL; VH2 = 100 mL
Pex= 1 bar; W=?; ∆U = ?
∆V = 100 – (100 + 100) = -100 mL = -0.1 dm3
W = -Pex(V2 – V1)
= -Pex × ∆V
= -1 × (-0.1)
= 0.1 dm3 bar
= 0.1 × 100 J
= +10 J
∆H = ∆U + P∆V
∴ ∆U = ∆H – P∆V = -620 – (+10) = -610 J
Ans. W = +10 J; ∆U = -610 J

Answer:
Given : NH4NO3(s) → N2O(g) + 2H2O(g)
nNH4NO3 = 2 mol; T = 273 + 100 = 373 K
W = ? Comment on work = ?
∆nreaction = (1 + 2) – 0 = 3 mol
∵ For 1 mol of NH4NO3 ∆nreaction = 3 mol
∴ For 2 mol of NH4NO3 ∆nreaction = 6 mol
Due to 6 moles of gaseous products from 2 mol NH4NO3, there is work of expansion, hence work is done by the system.
W = -∆nRT
= – 6 × 8.314 × 373 = -18606 J
= -18.606 kJ
Ans. Work is done by the system.

Question 1.
State whether ∆S is positive, negative or zero for the following reactions.
i. 2H2(g) + O2(g) → 2H2O(l)
ii. CaCO3(s) → CaO(s) + CO2(g)
Answer:
(i) 2H2(g) + O2(g) → 2H2O(l)
Since the system is converted from gaseous state to a liquid state, the disorder is decreased, hence ∆S < O (negative).

(ii) CaCO3(s) → CaO(s) + CO2(g)
Since molecules of solid CaCO3 break giving gaseous CO2, disorder is increased hence ∆S > O (positive).
