Synthetic petrol Fischer-Tropsch process Bergius process
Octane number Percentage by volume of iso-octane in the mixture of iso-octane and n- heptane which has the same anti- knocking qualities as the fuel under examination.
Octane number Straight chain alkanes have low octane numbers. The greater the length of the chain, lower is the octane number. Straight chain alkenes and alkynes, and also cyclic alkanes have higher octane numbers than their corresponding alkanes. Branched chain hydrocarbons have high octane numbers. Aromatic hydrocarbons have very high octane numbers.
Class exercise 2 Product is Hence, the answer is (a). Solution:
Class exercise 3 Which of the following carbides are used in preparation of methane by action of water? (a) CaC 2 (b) Al 4 C 3 (c) Si C(d) All of these Solution: Hence, the answer is (b).
Class exercise 4 Which of the following reactions will give maximum yield? Solution: Reaction proceeds via free radical mechanism and excess of C 2 H 6 is needed as it forms various products. Hence, the answer is (b).
Class exercise 5 Which of the following compounds will have the highest heat of combustion? (a)C 3 H 6 (b) C 5 H 12 (c) C 6 H 14 (d) C 10 H 22 Solution: Hence, the answer is (d). It has highest number of carbon and hydrogen atoms.
Class exercise 6 Which of the following reactions will give unsymmetrical alkanes in good yield? (a) Frankland reaction (b) Wurtz reaction (c) Corey House reaction (d) All of these Frankland and Wurtz reaction gives alkane having even number of carbon atoms. Solution: Hence, the answer is (c).
Class exercise 7 Which of the following is true for above reaction? (a) Compound X and Y are formed in equal quantities (b) Compound Y is formed in excess (c) Compound X is formed in excess (d) None of these
Class exercise 8 The monochlorination of an alkane (molecular formula C 8 H 18 ) gives only one product. The IUPAC name of alkane is (a) neo octane (b) iso octane (c) 2, 2, 3-trimethylpentane (d) 2, 2, 3, 3-tetramethylbutane Solution: Hence, the answer is (d).
Class exercise 9 Hydrolysis of calcium carbide gives a solution with pH (a) 0(b) 7 (d) 3 Solution: Hence, the answer is (c). pH is more than 7 due to formation of Ca(OH) 2.
Class exercise 10 Sodium benzoate + sodia lime X. X is (a) ethane (b) benzene (c) ethene(d) propane Solution: Hence, the answer is (b).
