62 None

SolutionsPressure inside the tube = Atmospheric Pressure = 99.4 KPa$\\$ Pressure exerted by $O_2$ vapour= Atmospheric pressure - V.P.$\\$ = 99.4 KPa – 3.4 KPa = 96 KPa$\\$No of moles of $O_2$ = n$\\$96 × $10^3$ ×50 × $10^{-6}$ = n × 8.3 × 300$\\$$\Rightarrow n = \frac{96\times 50\times 10^{-3}}{8.3\times 300}$ = $1.9277 \times 10^{-3} \approx 1.93\times 10^{-3}$

**63.** 57- A faulty barometer contains certain amount of air and saturated water vapour. It reads 74.0 cm when the atmospheric pressure is 76.0 cm of mercury and reads 72.10 cm when the atmospheric pressure is 74.0 cm of mercury. Saturation vapour pressure at the air temperature = 1.0 cm of mercury. Find the length of the barometer tube above the mercury level in the reservoir.

63 None

SolutionsLet the barometer has a length = x$\\$Height of air above the mercury column = (x – 74 – 1) = (x – 73)$\\$ Pressure of air = 76 – 74 – 1 = 1 cm$\\$For $2^{nd}$ case height of air above = (x – 72.1 – 1 – 1) = (x – 71.1)$\\$Pressure of air = (74 – 72.1 – 1) = 0.99$\\$$(x - 73)(1) = \frac{9}{10}(x - 71.1)$ $\Rightarrow 10(x-73) = 9 (x-71.1)$$\\$$\Rightarrow x = 10\times 73 - 9\times 71.1 = 730 - 639.9 = 90.1$$\\$Height of air = 90.1$\\$Height of barometer tube above the mercury column = 90.1 + 1 = 91.1 mm

**64.** 58- On a winter day, the outside temperature is 0°C and relative humidity 40%. The air from outside comes into a room and is heated to 20°C. What is the relative humidity in the room ? The saturation vapour pressure at 0°C is 4.6 mm of mercury and at 20°C it is 18 mm of mercury.

64 None

SolutionsRelative humidity = 40%$\\$SVP = 4.6 mm of Hg$\\$0.4 = $\frac{VP}{4.6} \Rightarrow VP = 0.4\times 4.6 = 1.84$$\\$$\frac{P_1 V}{T_1} = \frac{P_2 V}{T_2} \Rightarrow \frac{1.84}{273} = \frac{P_2}{293} \Rightarrow P_2 = \frac{1.84}{273}\times 293$Relative humidity at 20°C$\\$= $\frac{VP}{SVP} = \frac{1.84\times 293}{273\times 10} = 0.109 = 10.9\%$

**65.** 59- The temperature and humidity of air are 27°C and 50%
on a particular day. Calculate the amount of vapour that
should be added to 1 cubic metre of air to saturate it.
The saturation vapour pressure at 27°C = 3600 Pa.

65 None

Solutions$RH = \frac{VP}{SVP}$$\\$Given, $0.50 = \frac{VP}{3600}$$\Rightarrow VP = 3600\times 0.5$$\\$Let the Extra pressure needed be P$\\$So, $P = \frac{m}{M}\times \frac{RT}{V} = \frac{m}{18}\times \frac{8.3\times 300}{1}$$\\$Now, $\frac{m}{18}\times 8.3\times 300 + 3600\times 0.50 = 3600$ [air is saturated i.e. RH = 100% = 1 or VP = SVP]$\\$$\Rightarrow m =(\frac{36 - 18}{8.3})\times 6 = 13 g$

**66.** 60- The temperature and relative humidity in a room are
300 K and 20% respectively. The volume of the room is
50 $m^3$ . The saturation vapour pressure at 300 K is
3.3 kPa. Calculate the mass of the water vapour present
in the room.

66 None

SolutionsT = 300 K, Rel. humidity = 20%, V = 50 $m^3$$\\$SVP at 300 K = 3.3 KPa, V.P. = Relative humidity × SVP = 0.2 × 3.3 × $10^3$$\\$$PV = \frac{m}{M}RT\Rightarrow 0.2× 3.3 × $$10^3$ × 50 = $\frac{m}{18}\times 8.3\times 300$$\\$$\Rightarrow m = \frac{0.2\times 3.3\times 50\times 18\times 10^3}{8.3\times 300}$ = 238.55 grams $\approx 238g$$\\$Mass of water present in the room = 238 g.

**67.** 61- The temperature and the relative humidity are 300 K

with water, 500 g of water sticking on the floor.
Assuming no communication with the surrounding, find
the relative humidity when the floor dries. The changes
in temperature and pressure may be neglected.
Saturation vapour pressure at 300 K = 3.3 kPa.

67 None

Solutions$RH = \frac{VP}{SVP} \Rightarrow 0.20 = \frac{VP}{3.3\times 10^3} = 660$$\\$$ PV = nRT\Rightarrow P = \frac{nRT}{V} = \frac{m}{V}\times \frac{RT}{V} = \frac{500}{18}\times \frac{8.3\times 300}{50} = 1383.3$$\\$Net P = 1383.3 + 660 = 2043.3$\\$Now RH, = $\frac{2034.3}{3300} = 0.619 \approx 62\%$

room temperature is increased by 5°C how much more
water will evaporate ? The saturation vapour pressure of
water at 15°C and 20°C are 1.6 kPa and 2.4 kPa
respectively.

68 None

Solutions(a) Rel. humidity = $\frac{VP}{SVP at 15^{\circ}C} \Rightarrow 0.4 = \frac{VP}{1.6\times 10^3} \Rightarrow VP = 0.4\times 1.6\times 10^3$$\\$The evaporation occurs as along as the atmosphere does not become saturated.$\\$Net pressure change = 1.6 × $10^3$ – 0.4 × 1.6 × $10^3$ = (1.6 – 0.4 × 1.6)$10^3$ = 0.96 × $10^3$$\\$Net mass of water evaporated = $m \Rightarrow 0.96 × 10^3 × 50 = \frac{m}{18}\times 8.3\times 288$$\\$$\Rightarrow m = \frac{0.96\times 50\times 18\times 10^3}{8.3\times 288} = 361.45\approx 361 g$$\\$(b) At 20°C SVP = 2.4 KPa, At 15°C SVP = 1.6 KPa$\\$Net pressure charge = (2.4 – 1.6) × $10^3$ Pa = 0.8 × $10^3$ Pa$\\$Mass of water evaporated $= m' = 0.8 × 10^3 50 = \frac{m'}{18}\times 8.3\times 293$$\\$$\Rightarrow m' = \frac{0.8\times 50\times 18\times 10^3}{8.3\times 293} = 296.06 \approx$ 296 grams
