Answer all parts (in your answer book) (2.5 Marks per part) in some
questions you will need to refer to the chemical equations below.
2 P + 6 H2O + 3 Br2 → 6 HBr + 2 H3PO3
H3PO3 + H2O + Br2 → 2 HBr + H3PO4

A car tyre has a pressure of 2.6 atm at 10°C. If the pressure inside
reaches 5 atm, the tyre will fail. How hot would the tyre have to get for
this to happen?
Why does pressure of a gas rise in a sealed solid container as the

If ΔG = ΔH –TΔS, under what circumstances of ΔH and ΔS is a
reaction definitely spontaneous?
What purpose does ozone fulfil in the upper atmosphere?
Answer all parts
Briefly outline the factors that affect the rate of a chemical reaction.
One of the factors which effects the ozone layer is a reaction between
hydroxide radicals (HO.) and ozone (O3)
HO + O3 Products
The reaction is first order in both HO and O3.
(a) Write down the rate equation for the reaction.
(b) If the rate of the reaction is 5.30 mol L-1 s-1 when
[OH] = 0.0021 mol L-1 and [O3] =0.70 mol L-1, calculate the rate
constant, k. What are the units of k?
What are the other main risks to the ozone layer?

In an explosion a solid compound reacts to create large volumes of
gas. For example, TNT (trinitrotoluene) explodes according to the
2C7H5(NO2)3 (s) 12CO (g) +2 C (s) + 5 H2 (g) + 3 N2 (g)
How many moles of gas are produced in the explosion of 300g
What volume would these gases occupy if they expanded to a
total pressure of 1 x 105 Pa (1 atm) at 25oC?
Calculate the partial pressure of each gas at that total pressure.
Carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2) have boiling points of
-191.5oC and -253oC, respectively. A large portion of the reasoning
behind the significant difference in boiling point is due to the different
intermolecular bonding present in each gas. Discuss.

What are the four quantum numbers and what information does each
one give about the characteristics of an atom or electron?
Explain how the Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (EPRT) accounts for
the shape of NH3 and NH4+
Why/how does NaCl dissolve in water?
For each bond in the molecule below identify if the bond is
covalent or polar covalent. For those that are polar covalent use
+/- notation to indicate the polarity of the bond.
Answer all parts
In the recovery of iron from iron ore, the reduction of the ore is actually
accomplished by reactions involving carbon monoxide. Using the
following thermodynamical equations
Fe3O4 (s) + CO (g) 3 FeO (s) + CO2 (g) Ho+38 kJ
3Fe2O3 (s) +CO (g) 2Fe3O4 (s) + CO2 (g) Ho=-59kJ
Fe2O3 (s) + 3CO (g) 2Fe (s) + 3CO2 (g) Ho=-28kJ
Calculate Ho for the reaction:
FeO (s) + CO (g) Fe (s) + CO2 (g)
If the So for the reaction is -23.6 J/Mol calculate the Go value at
