An electrochemical cell is shown below Pt, H2(1 atm)| HCI (0.1 M)CH3COOH (0.1 M)|

H2(1 atm), Pt The EMF of the cell will not be zero, because

(a) EMF depends on molarities of acids used

(b) pH of 0.1 M HCl and 0.1 M CH3COOH is not same

(c) the temperature is constant

(d) acids used in two compartments are different

Saturated solution of KNO3 is used to make 'salt-bridge' because:

(a) velocity of K+ is greater than that of NO3-

(b) velocity of NO3- is greater than that of K+

(c) Velocities of both K+ and NO3- are nearly the same

(d) KNO3 is highly soluble in water

A current is passed through two voltameters connected in series. The first voltmeter connected in series. The first voltmeter contains XSO4(aq) while the second voltmeter contains Y2SO4(aq). The relative  atomic masses of X and Y are in the ratio of 2:1. The ration of the mass of X liberated to the mass of Y liberated is: 

(a) 1:1

(b) 1:2

(c) 2:1

(d) none of these

(c) EOP = EOP + 0.059nlogreductantoxidant

(d) All of the above

When a copper wire is immersed in a solution of AgNO3, the colour of solution becomes blue because copper:

(b) is oxidised to Cu2+

(c) is reduced to Cu2-

(d) splits up into atoic form and dissolves
