They must NOT start writing during this time.) -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Answer all questions in Part I and six questions from Part II, choosing two questions from Section A, two from Section B and two from Section C. All working, including rough work, should be done on the same sheet as, and adjacent to, the rest of the answer. The intended marks for questions or parts of questions are given in brackets [ ]. Balanced equations must be given wherever possible and diagrams where they are helpful. When solving numerical problems, all essential working must be shown. In working out problems use the following data: Gas constant R = 1.987 cal deg-1 mol-1 = 8.314 JK-1 mol-1 = 0.0821 dm3 atm K-1mol-1 1 l atm = 1 dm3 atm = 101.3 J. 1 Farday = 96500 Coulombs. Avagadro s number = 6.023 1023. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------PART I (20 Marks) Answer all questions. Question 1 (a) Fill in the blanks by choosing the appropriate word/words from those given in the brackets: (hydrolysis, reduction, oxidation, vacant, osmotic, above, benzoic acid, phenol, aniline, below, can, decreases, increases, cannot, crystal, ionization, rate, rate constant.)
