In context with beryllium, which one of the following statements is incorrect?

(a) It is rendered passive by nitric acid

(b) lt forms Be2C

(c) Its salts rarely hydrolyse

(d) Its hydride is electron-deficient and polymeric

(c) Beryllium salts are covalent in nature because of very small Be2+ ion and its high polarising power, so it is easily hydrolysed, e.g. BeCl2+2H2O Be(OH)2 + 2HCl

Which of the following alkaline earth metal sulphates has hydration enthalpy higher than the lattice enthalpy?

(a) CaSO4               (b) BeSO4

(c) BaSO4               (d) SrSO4


(b) Key Idea Hydration energy varies inversely with size and in sulphates of alkaline earth metals lattice energy remains almost constant.

The order of size of alkaline earth metals is


Thus, the order of hydration energy is


Hence, BeSO4 has the hydration enthalpy higher than the lattice enthalpy.

CaCl2 is preffered over NaCl for clearing ice on roads particularly in very cold countries. This is because:

(a) CaCl2 is less soluble in H2O than NaCl

(b) CaCl2 is hygroscopic but NaCl is not 

(c) Eutectic mixture of CaCl2/H2O freezes at -55°C while that of NaCl/H2O freezes at -18°C

(d) NaCl makes the road slippery but CaCl2 does not

(c) Due to much lower freezing point of eutectic mixture of CaCl2/H2O.
