The standard Gibbs free energy change (ΔGº in kJ mol–1), in a Daniel cell ( Eº 1.1 V
cell = ), when 2 moles of
Zn(s) is oxidized at 298 K, is closest to
(A) – 212.3 (B) – 106.2 (C) – 424.6 (D) – 53.1
One mole of an ideal gas at initial temperature T, undergoes a quasi-static process during which the volume
V is doubled. During the process the internal energy U obeys the equation U = aV3, where a is a constant.
The work done during this process is-
(A) 3RT / 2 (B) 5RT / 2 (C) 5RT / 3 (D) 7RT / 3
A train leaves Pune at 7 : 30 am and reaches Mumbai at 11 : 30 am. Another train leaves Mumbai at 9 : 30 am and reaches Pune at 1 :00 pm. Assuming that the two trains travels at constant speeds, at what time do the two trains cross each other
option
(A) 10: 20 am
(B) 11 : 30 am
(C) 10 : 26 am
(D) Data not sufficient
A container with rigid walls is covered with perfectly insulating material. The container is divided into two
parts by a partition. One part contains a gas while the other is fully evacuated (vacuum). The partition is
suddenly removed. The gas rushes to fill the entire volume and comes to equilibrium after a little time. If the
gas is not ideal,
(A) the initial internal energy of the gas equals its final internal energy
(B) the initial temperature of the gas equals its final temperature
(C) the initial pressure of the gas equals its final pressure
(D) the initial entropy of the gas equals its final entropy
A bus driving along at 39.6 kmph is approaching a person who is standing at the bus stop, while honking
repeatedly at an interval of 30 seconds. If the speed of the sound is 330 m/s, at what interval will the person
hear the horn ?
(A) 31 seconds
(B) 29 seconds
(C) 30 seconds
(D) the interval will depend on the distance of the bus from the passenger
The concentration of a substance undergoing a chemical reaction becomes one-half of its original value after
time t regardless of the initial concentration. The reaction is an example of a-
(A) zero order reaction (B) first order reaction
(C) second order reaction (D) third order reaction
The number of natural numbers n in the interval [1005, 2010] for which the polynomial 1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + …. x^n–1
divides the polynomial 1 + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + …. + x^2010 is-
(A) 0 (B) 100 (C) 503 (D) 1006
A bust cell has intracellular bacteria symbionts. If the growth rate of the bacterial symbiont is always 10%
higher than that of the host cell, after 10 generations of the host cell the density of bacteria in host cells will
increase -
(A) by 10 % (B) two-fold (C) ten-fold (D) hundred-fold
DNA mutations that do not cause any functional change in the protein product are known as –
