Answers : (1)


Dear student,

Quaternary ammonium cations, also known as quats, are positively charged polyatomic ions of the structure NR4+, R being an alkyl or aryl  group . Unlike the  (NH4+) and the primary, secondary, or tertiary ammonium cations, the quaternary ammonium cations are permanently charged, independent of the pHof their solution. Quaternary ammonium salts or quaternary ammonium compounds (called quaternary amines in oilfield parlance) are salts of quaternary ammonium cations with an anion.

A good vacuum produced in common laboratory apparatus corresponds to 10^-6mm pressure at 25℃. Calculate no. Of molecules per cc at this pressure and temperature.(Ans:-3.2×10^10)
From PV =nRT 1.3 x 10^-9 * 10^-3 = n * 0.0821 * 300 n = 0.0527 x 10^-12 no. of molecules = n x Na => 0.0527 x 10^-12 x 6.023 x 10^23 = > 0.317 x 10^11 or => 3.17 x 10^10
