Question 12.3 Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their boiling points.

CH_{3}CHO, CH_{3}CH_{2}OH,CH_{3}OCH_{3}, CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{3}

Answer :

Increasing order in their boiling points-

CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{3}<CH_{3}OCH_{3}<CH_{3}CHO<CH_{3}CH_{2}OH

Alcohol has the highest boiling point due to more extensive intermolecular H-bonding. Aldehyde is more polar than ether so, ethanal has high BP than ethyl ether. And alkane has the lowest BP.

Question 12.4(i) Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their reactivity in nucleophilic addition reactions.

Ethanal, Propanal, Propanone, Butanone.

Answer :

necrt_189451


By the above structure, we can see that, due to +I effect of alkyl group te electron density at Carbonyl carbon increase from ethanal to bytanone. And so the tendency of attacking nucleophile is decreased.
Thus the increasig order (reactivity towards nucleophile)-

Butanone < propanone < propanal < ethanal

Question 12.4(ii) Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their reactivity in nucleophilic addition reactions.

Benzaldehyde, p-Tolualdehyde, p-nitrobenzaldehyde, Acetophenone.

Answer :

If +I effect is more its reactivity towards nucleophilic addition is less. and -I is more, more reactive toward addition.

Question 12.8(i) Which acid of each pair shown here would you expect to be stronger?

CH_{3}CO_{2}H or CH_{2}FCO_{2}H

Answer :

CH_{2}FCO_{2}H is stronger than CH_{3}COOH due to -I effect of Fluorine decreases the electron density at OH bond, which makes it easier to lose proton ( H^{+} ). The conjugate base of CH_{2}FCO_{2}^{-} is more stable than CH_{3}COO^{-} .

Question 12.8(ii) Which acid of each pair shown here would you expect to be stronger?

CH_{2}FCO_{2}H or CH_{2}Cl CO_{2}H

Answer :

CH_{2}FCO_{2}H is a stronger acid.

Fluorine has more -I effect than chlorine. So, CH_{2}FCO_{2}H can release proton easily than CH_{2}ClCO_{2}H .

Question 12.8(iii) Which acid of each pair shown here would you expect to be stronger?

(iii) CH_{2}FCH_{2}CH_{2}CO_{2}H or CH_{3}CH FCH_{2}CO_{2}H

Answer :

Since we know that inductive effect depends on distance. Greater is the distance lesser is the effect. So, -I effect in CH_{3}CH FCH_{2}CO_{2}H is more.

CH_{3}CH FCH_{2}CO_{2}H is more acidic than CH_{2}FCH_{2}CH_{2}CO_{2}H .

Question 12.8(iv) Which acid of each pair shown here would you expect to be stronger?

1649968633265

Answer :

Due to -I effect of Fluorine in A, it is easy to release proton ( H^{+} ) but in compound B due to +I effect of methyl group it becomes difficlt te release protons. Therefore, compound A is more acidic than compound B.

So, there must be an aldehyde group.And also it gives cannizaro reaction, it means the given copound has no \alpha -hydrogen atom. On oxidation it gives 1,2-benzenedicarboxylic acid. Thus, the aldehyde group ( -CHO ) is directly attached with the benzene ring and also it should be para-substituted.

Hence, the structure of the compound (2-ethyl benzaldehyde) is-

Q 12.12 (i) Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their property as indicated:

Acetaldehyde, Acetone, Di-tert-butyl ketone, Methyl tert-butyl ketone (reactivity towards HCN)

Answer:

Increasing order (reactivity towards HCN)-
Di-tert-butyl ketone < Methyl tert-butyl ketone < Acetone < Acetaldehyde

necrt_19444
The attacking power of CN nucleophile can be affected by two ways-

  1. hindrance near carbonyl group
  2. negative charge on -CO group (through +I effect of methyl)

By observing the structure of all compound we can arrange them in order to reactivity towards HCN.

Q 12.12 (ii) Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their property as indicated:

CH_{3}CH_{2}CH(Br)COOH, CH_{3}CH(Br)CH_{2}COOH, (CH_{3})_{2}CHCOOH ,CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}COOH (acid strength)

Answer:

increasing order of their acidic strength-

\\(CH_{3})_{2}CHCOOH<CH_{3}CH_{2}CH_{2}COOH<CH_{3}CH(Br)CH_{2}COOH<CH_{3}CH_{2}CH(Br)COOH

Due to presence of Bromine, which shows -I effect and we know that -I grows weaker as distance increases. And in case of n-propyl and isopropyl, the +I effect is more in isopropyl, so it is weak in acidic strength.
-I\propto acidic nature
+I\propto 1/ acidic

Q 12.12 (iii) Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their property as indicated:

Benzoic acid, 4-Nitrobenzoic acid, 3,4-Dinitrobenzoic acid, 4-Methoxybenzoic acid (acid strength)

Answer:

Increasing order of acidic strength -

4-methoxybenzoic acid < Benzoic acid < 4-Nitrobenzoic acid < 3,4-Dinitrobenzoic acid

As we know, electron withdrawing groups increase the strength of the acid and electron donating group decreases the strength of acids. Therefore, 4-methoxybenzoic acid is the weakest acid among them and 3,4-Dinitrobenzoic acid is the strongest due to the presence of 2 electron withdrawing groups and then 4-Nitrobenzoic acid.

Q 12.18(i) Give plausible explanation for each of the following:

Cyclohexanone forms cyanohydrin in good yield but 2,2,6-trimethylcyclohexanone does not.

Answer:

Structure of 2,2,6-trimethylcyclo hexanone
necrt_19511
Cyclohexanone forms cyanohydrin when the nucleophile ( HCN/CN^{-} ) attack on cyclohexanone.
necrt_19511_1
In this case, there is less hindrance around the CO group so the nucleophile can attack easily. But in case of 2,2,6-trimethylcyclo hexanone at the alpha ( \alpha ) position, there is a hindrance because of the methyl groups. Thus the nucleophile cannot attack effectively.

Q 12.18(ii) Give plausible explanation for each of the following:

There are two –NH 2 groups in semicarbazide. However, only one is involved in the formation of semicarbazones.

Answer:

In Semicarbazide,

necrt_19512


One of the -NH_{2} group is involved in resonance with the carbonyl group, which is directly attached. Therefore, it cannot act as a nucleophile (its electrons are less available or less electron density at that -NH_{2} group). But the other -NH_{2} group is not participating in resonance, so it can act as nucleophile and attack on the carbonyl carbon of ketone and aldehyde.

Q 12.18(iii) Give plausible explanation for each of the following:

During the preparation of esters from a carboxylic acid and an alcohol in the presence of an acid catalyst, the water or the ester should be removed as soon as it is formed.

Answer:

RCOOH+R'OH\rightleftharpoons RCOOR'+H_{2}O
If either water or the ester is not removed immediately then ester can react with water and again and give back the reactants.

Thus to shift the reaction in forward direction we need to produce more ester or remove either of the two.

Q 12.19 An organic compound contains 69.77% carbon, 11.63% hydrogen and rest oxygen. The molecular mass of the compound is 86. It does not reduce Tollens’ reagent but forms an addition compound with sodium hydrogen sulphite and give a positive iodoform test. On vigorous oxidation it gives ethanoic and propanoic acid. Write the possible structure of the compound.

Answer:

In the question, it is given that,
% of carbon = 69.77
% of Hydrogen = 11.63
% of Oxygen = (100-69.77-11.63) = 18.6

Now, the no. of moles of the components are-
n_{c}=\frac{69.77}{12}=5.81
n_{H}=\frac{11.63}{1}=11.63
n_{O}=\frac{18.6}{16}=1.16
Thus ration of C:H:O = 5.81:11.63:1.16
To get empirical formula we need to divide them by 1.16 .So,
C:H:O= 5:10:1
So, the empirical formula is C_{5}H_{10}O
The molecular mass of the compound = (5\times 12)+(10\times 1)+(1\times 16) = 86

Since the compound does not give tollens test it means it is not an aldehyde. It is given that, the compound gives positive iodoform test it means the compound must be methyl ketone.
On oxidation, it gives ethanoic acid and propanoic acids. Therefore, the compound should be

Pentan-2-one
the structure of the compound is - CH_{3}-CO-(CH_{2})_{2}-CH_{3}

Q 12.20 Although phenoxide ion has more number of resonating structures than carboxylate ion, carboxylic acid is a stronger acid than phenol. Why?

Answer:

In carboxylate ion the electron is delocalised between oxygen, which is electronegative in nature. But in case of phenoxide ion, the electron are delocalise between less electronegative atom and also phenoxide ion has non-equivalent resonance structure. Therefore, carboxylate ion is more resonance stable than phenoxide ion and we know that more stable the conjugate base of an acid, high strong is the acidic

Questions related to CBSE Class 12th

Have a question related to CBSE Class 12th ?

Here are some options you can explore to get admission in a good school even though admissions might be closed for many:

  • Waitlist: Many schools maintain waitlists after their initial application rounds close.  If a student who secured a seat decides not to join, the school might reach out to students on the waitlist.  So, even if the application deadline has passed,  it might be worth inquiring with schools you're interested in if they have a waitlist and if they would consider adding you to it.

  • Schools with ongoing admissions: Some schools, due to transfers or other reasons, might still have seats available even after the main admission rush.  Reach out to the schools directly to see if they have any open seats in 10th grade.

  • Consider other good schools: There might be other schools in your area that have a good reputation but weren't on your initial list. Research these schools and see if they have any seats available.

  • Focus on excelling in your current school: If you can't find a new school this year, focus on doing well in your current school. Maintain good grades and get involved in extracurricular activities. This will strengthen your application for next year if you decide to try transferring again.

In India, the design and coding fields offer exciting career options that can leverage your interest in both. Here's how you can navigate this path:

Choosing Your Stream:

  • Graphic Design Focus: Consider a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design or a design diploma. Build a strong portfolio showcasing your creative skills. Learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to understand web development better. Many online resources and bootcamps offer these introductory courses.

  • Coding Focus: Pursue a Computer Science degree or a coding bootcamp in India. These programs are intensive but can equip you with strong coding skills quickly. While building your coding prowess, take online courses in graphic design principles and UI/UX design.

Engineering Subjects (for a Degree):

  • Information Technology (IT): This offers a good mix of web development, networking, and database management, all valuable for web design/development roles.

  • Human-Computer Interaction (HCI): This is a specialized field that bridges the gap between design and computer science, focusing on how users interact with technology. It's a perfect choice if you're interested in both aspects.

  • Passing NIOS in October 2024 will make you eligible for NIT admissions in 2025 . NIT admissions are based on your performance in entrance exams like JEE Main, which typically happen in January and April. These exams consider the previous year's Class 12th board results (or equivalent exams like NIOS).

Here's why 2025 is more likely:

  • JEE Main 2024 Admissions: The application process for NITs through JEE Main 2024 is likely complete by now (May 2024). They consider your 2023 Class 12th marks (CBSE in this case).
  • NIOS Results: Since NIOS results typically come out after the NIT admission process, your October 2024 NIOS marks wouldn't be available for JEE Main 2024.

Looking Ahead (2025 Admissions):

  • Focus on JEE Main: Since you have a computer science background, focus on preparing for JEE Main 2025. This exam tests your knowledge in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics, crucial for engineering programs at NITs.
  • NIOS Preparation: Utilize the time between now and October 2024 to prepare for your NIOS exams.
  • Eligibility Criteria: Remember, NITs typically require a minimum of 75% marks in Class 12th (or equivalent) for general category students (65% for SC/ST). Ensure you meet this criteria in your NIOS exams.

Yes, scoring above 99.9 percentile in CAT significantly increases your chances of getting a call from IIM Bangalore,  with your academic background. Here's why:

  • High CAT Score: A score exceeding  99.9 percentile is exceptional and puts you amongst the top candidates vying for admission. IIM Bangalore prioritizes  CAT scores heavily in the shortlisting process.

  • Strong Academics: Your 96% in CBSE 12th and a B.Tech degree demonstrate a solid academic foundation, which IIM Bangalore also considers during shortlisting.

However, the shortlisting process is multifaceted:

  • Other Factors: IIM Bangalore considers other factors beyond CAT scores, such as your work experience (if any), XAT score (if you appear for it), academic diversity, gender diversity, and performance in the interview and Written Ability Test (WAT) stages (if shortlisted).

Here's what you can do to strengthen your application:

  • Focus on WAT and PI: If you receive a shortlist, prepare extensively for the Written Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interview (PI). These stages assess your communication, soft skills, leadership potential, and suitability for the program.

  • Work Experience (if applicable): If you have work experience, highlight your achievements and how they align with your chosen IIM Bangalore program.

Overall, with a stellar CAT score and a strong academic background, you have a very good chance of getting a call from IIM Bangalore. But remember to prepare comprehensively for the other stages of the selection process.

hello,

Yes you can appear for the compartment paper again since CBSE gives three chances to a candidate to clear his/her exams so you still have two more attempts. However, you can appear for your improvement paper for all subjects but you cannot appear for the ones in which you have failed.

I hope this was helpful!

Good Luck
