(1ai)Give the name of 3 group II element.

Answer:- 1) Magnesium(Mg) 2) Barium(Ba) 3) Calcium(Ca)

(1aii)Write the electronic configurations of any two of the element named in a(i) above.

Answer:- i.Electronic Configuration of Magnesium is 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2

ii.Electronic Configuration of Barium is 1s^2 2s^2 2p^6 3s^2 3p^6 4s^2 4p^6 5s^2 5p^6 6s^3

NOTE:- Pls note dat dis sign ^ means raise to power.

(1aiii)State 3 important requirements for polymerization to take place.

Answer:- loading…


(1bi)Give 3 chemical properties of an acid.

Answer:- 1)Acids reacts with some metals like iron,zinc,magnesium to liberate hydrogen gas.

Equation:- 2HCl(aq) + Zn(s) ->ZnCl2(aq) + H2(g)

2)Acids reacts with insoluble bases to form salt&water as d only product.

Equation:- H2SO4(aq) + 2KOH(aq) –>K2SO4(aq) + 2H20(l)

3)Acids reacts with trioxocarbonates(IV) to liberate carbon(IV)oxide.

Equation:- 2HCl(aq) + Na2Co3(aq) –>2NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) + Co2(g)

(1bii)Name 3 methods of preparing salts.

Answer:- Salt can be prepared using d following methods:-

1)By titrating an alkali agains an appropriate acid.

2)By the direct displacement of the hydrogen ion in an acid by a metal more reactive dan hydrogen e.g zinc

3)By heating a diluted acid&the base is added a little at a time,until no more base can dissolve.

the excess base is den filtered off,leaving d salt formed in d solution.

(1biii)Give d laboratory test for carbon(IV)oxide.

Answer:- Bubble the unkown gas through lime water (calcium hydroxide).if the gas is carbon(IV) oxide,the lime water will turn milky due to the precipitation of insoluble calcium trioxocarbonate (IV).

(1ci) Give d name of a suitable indicator for titration b/w hydrochloric acid and sodium trioxocarbonate (IV) solution.

Answer:- the name of the suitable indicator for the above titration is Methyl orange becos the color at end point is orange and HCl is a strong acid while Na2CO3 is a strong base.

This is more Nabteb chemistry questions,pls study it and answer, Good luck!
