Question 2.

(i) Determine the freezing point of a solution containing 0.625 g of glucose (C6H12O6) dissolved in 102.8 g of water. [2] (Freezing point of water = 273 K, Kf for water = 1.87 K kg mol-1, at. wt. C = 12, H = 1, O = 16)

(i) Al3+ ions are precipitated first as Al(OH)3 because Ksp for Al(OH)3 is lower than that of Ca(OH)2.
(ii) This is because KCl does not undergo hydrolysis in water and the aqueous solution is neutral whereas ZnCl2 undergoes hydrolysis in water to give an acidic solution which turns blue litmus solution red.
\begin{array}{rl}{\mathrm{Zn}^{2+}+2 \mathrm{C} \mathrm{I}^{-}+2 \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O}} & {\rightleftharpoons \mathrm{Zn}(\mathrm{OH})_{2}+2 \mathrm{H}^{+}+2 \mathrm{Cl}} \\ {\mathrm{or}} & {\mathrm{Zn}^{2+}+2 \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{O} \rightleftharpoons \mathrm{Zn}(\mathrm{OH})_{2}+2 \mathrm{H}^{+}}\end{array}

(c) Number of Na+ ions = 4
Number of Cl– ions = 4
