# 2019 NECO CHEMISTRY PRACTICAL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS.

*TAKE NOTE ON THIS NUMBER 1*

Pls note that each school have their titre value or end point. In our solution, we used 20.40cm3. So make sure you use ur school’s titre value. Ask your chemistry teacher. Some school got 24.50, 24.20, 22.10, 22.40, etc. Make sure your average titre value tallies with that of ur school’s. Anywhere you see 20.40 in my work, edit it and re-solve with ur school’s value.

This is very important.

Thanks.

The volume or pipette used 25.00cm³

In a tabular form

Titrations |rough |1st|2nd|3rd|

Vol of A used |21.00|20.30|20.40|20.50

(1ai)

Average volume of A = 20.30+20.40+20.50/3

=61.2/3

=20.40cm³

(1aii)

H2X(aq) + 2NaOH(aq)–>Na2X(aq) + 2H2O(l)

(1bi)

Mass conc. of B = 1g/250cm³

= 1g/0.25dm³ = 4g/dm³

Using :

Molar conc. = mass conc./molar mass

= 4/(23+16+1) = 4/40 = 0.1mol/dm³

(1bii)

Using CAVA/CBVB = nA/nB

CA = CBVBnA/VAnB

CA = 0.1×25×1/20.4×2

Concentration of A = 0.06127mol/dm³

(1biii)

Molar mass of A = mass conc/molar conc

=4.85/0.6127

=79.15

≅ 79gmol

(ii)it is hygroscopic which readily absorb moisture from atmosphere

Because silver nitrate is photosensitive (i.e.sensitive to light) Therefore,if the silver nitrate is left in sunlight or any bright light, it breaks down (hydrolyses) to give black/brown silver oxide and nitric acid.
