				   What is solvation energy?

7 years ago


Answers : (1)


solvation energy:
The change in Gibbs energy when an ion or molecule is transferred from a vacuum (or the gas phase) to a solvent. The main contributions to the solvation energy come from:

(a) the cavitation energy of formation of the hole which preserves the dissolved species in the solvent;
(b) the orientation energy of partial orientation of the dipoles;
(c) the isotropic interaction energy of electrostatic and dispersion origin; and
(d) the anisotropic energy of specific interactions, e.g.hydrogen bonds, donor-acceptor interactions etc.

Current 10 amp passed througj cuso4 for 32min 10 sec.if 896ml oxy liberated at stp calculate efficiency of cell
from faraday’s law, moles x valence factor = i*t/F moles = i*t/F*n = 10*1930/2*96485 = 0.100 approx. Moles given at STP = 0.896/22.4 = 0.04 efficiency = (0.1-0.04)/0.1 * 100 => 60%

the work done when 6.5 g of zinc reacts with dilut HCl in an open beaker at 298k is
moles of zn reacted = > 6.5/65 = 0.1 mol. from ideal gas eqn. PV = nRT 1*V = 0.1*0.0821*298 V = 2.46 litre. Work Done = -Pext.*V => -1*2.46 = -2.46 l/atm or W = -2.46 * 100 => -246 Joules...
