    15 cm3 of a gaseous hydrocarbon requires 90 cm3 of oxygen for completecombustion, both volumes being measured at 15􀁱C and 1 atm. The formula of thehydrocarbon is

    A C4H6
    B C4H8
    C C4H10
    D impossible to calculate without knowing the molar volume of gases underthese conditions.

    Guys how do you do this? Please help

    It's because benzene needs to undergo substitution reactions because the delocalised ring of electrons needs to be maintained for stability - however with cyclohexa1-3 diene, there is no delocalised ring structure. it is comprised of 3 double bonds, and double bonds can undergo addition reactions.

    I did it like this:-
    We have the volume of the hydrocarbon and oxygen given to us(gaseous volumes) so I used the equation, moles=volume/molar volume and found the moles of both the hydrocarbon and oxygen which had a ratio of 1:6. As this is a complete combustion, we know the products are gonna be Carbon Dioxide and Water. So, I just wrote the equation using the molar ratio I calculated:-

    CxHy + 6O2----> 4CO2+4H20.

    There are total 12 oxygen atoms so to balance them, I wrote 4 CO2 and 4H20.
    This means that carbon:hydrogen ratio is 1:2 hence 4:8 in this case which is why you get C4H8 as the answer(B)

    Hey - what compound do diazonium ions decompose to when heated above 10oC? Was on a past paper but I've forgotten!

    How come the answer is C here? I thought it'd be A as the electrodes are the same metals as those in solution?

    if you put iron you'd set up potential of Fe/Fe2+ and Fe/Fe3+

    If you look at the beaker on the right, you can see that the solution contains a mixture of FeSO4 (Fe2+ ions) and Fe2(SO4)3 (Fe3+) ions. Hence, there is no metal iron involved. The electrode is therefore made out of platinum, which is kind of the convention.
