    UPSEE/UPTU Chemistry Syllabus: 2017 - 2018

    Important Concepts:

    UPSEE Surface Chemistry Concepts 1

    UPSEE: Important Questions and Preparation Tips – Thermodynamics (Part 1)

    UPSEE Surface Chemistry Concepts 1

    UPSEE: Important Questions and Preparation Tips – Solutions

    Some previous years’ solved questions are given below:

    Question 1:

    A colloidal system having a solid substance as a dispersed phase and a liquid as dispersion medium is classified as

    (a) Solid sol

    (b) Gel

    (c) Emulsion

    (d) Sol

    Solution 1:

    It is classified as sol.

    Hence, the correct option is (d).

    Question 2:

    Which of the following is a Lyophobic colloid?

    (A) Gelatin

    (B) Sulphur

    (C) Starch

    (D) Gum Arabica

    Solution 2:

    Sulphur is an example of lyophobic colloid.

    Hence, the correct option is (b).

    UPSEE: Important Questions and Preparation Tips – Periodic Classification & Periodicity in Properties

    Question 3:

    At Critical Micelle Concentration (CMC), the surfactant molecules:

    (A) Decompose

    (B) Dissociate

    (C) Associate

    (D) Become completely soluble

    Solution 3:

    At Critical Micelle Concentration (CMC), the surfactant molecules are always associated.

    Hence, the correct option is (c).

    Question 4:

    Which of the following statements is correct for Tyndall effect?

    (a) Scattering and polarising of light by sma11 suspended particles is called Tyndall effect

    (b) Tyndall effect of colloidal particles is due to dispersion

    (c) Tyndall effect is due refraction of light

    (d) Tyndall effect is zig-zag motion of suspended particles

    Solution 4:

    When light is scattered by particles in a colloid or else particles in a very fine suspension, then it is called Tyndall effect.

    Hence, the correct option is (b).

    UPSEE: Important Questions and Preparation Tips – States of Matter

    Question 5:

    Which are of the following is a false statement?

    (a) Cell fluid is an example of sol

    (b) Butter is an example of gel

    (c) Hair cream is an example of emulsion

    (d) Cheese is an example of foam

    Solution 5:

    Cheese is not an example of foam, in fact it is an example of gel in which dispersion medium is solid and dispersed phase is liquid.

    Hence, the correct option is (d).

    Conclusion:

    With the help of these notes aspirants can learn or revise all important concepts related to chapter Surface Chemistry. Engineering aspirants can use these notes for quick revision to save their precious time.
