1. A is 0.100 mol dm-3 solution of an acid. B is a solution NaOH containing 2.8 g per 500 cm3.
(a) Put A into the burette and titrate it against 25.0 cm3 portions B using methyl orange as an indicator. Repeat the titration to obtain consistent titres.  Tabulate your readings and calculate the average volume of A used.

(b) From your results and the information provided above, calculate the:
(i) number of moles of acid in the average titre;
(ii) number of moles of NaOH in the volume of B pipetted;
(iii) mole ratio of acid to base in the reaction
[H = 1.00, O = 16.0, K = 39.0]

ANS: (a) titration answer soon.

(b) (i) number of moles of acid = 0.100 x VA
=   X mole(s) [3sig. Fig to score]

1000cm3 contains 0.100 mole(s)
VA will contain 0.100 x VA
=   X moles [3 Sig. Fig. to score]

(ii) Number of moles of NaOH in B
500cm3 of B contains 2.8g of NaOH
1000cm3 of B will contain 2.8 x 1000 = 5.6 NaOH
Molar mass of NaOH = 39 + 16 + 1 or 56 gmol-1

Conc of B = 5.6  = 0.100 mol dm-3

(iii) Mole ratio of acid to base = X: Y to nearest whole number ratio.

2. C is a mixture of two salts. Carry out the following exercises on C. Record your observations and identify any gas(es) evolved. State the conclusion drawn from the result of each test.

(a) Put all of C into a boiling tube and add about 5cm3 of distilled water.  Stir thoroughly and filter. Keep both the residue and the filtrate.

(b) To about 2 cm3 of the filtrate, add few drops of K2Cr2O7/H+. Boil the mixture and then allow to cool as (D).

(c) (i) Put the residue in a test tube and add dilute NaOH(aq). Shake the mixture and divide the solution into two portions.
(ii) To the first portion from (c)(i), add NaOH(aq) in drops and then in excess.
(d) What organic class does C belong to?


a)  C+ burning splint C burns when ignited with a burning splint. C is flammable.
b) (i) C + Water C forms a solution with water. C is a mixture with water.
(ii) C + K2Cr2O7/H+ve

+ Heat

No visible reaction.

The K2Cr2O7/H+ve changes colour to green.


C is a reducing agent.

c)  Residue from b (D) + C

+ NaOH(aq)

D dissolves to form a reddish-brown solution.

A yellowish precipitate is formed and an antiseptic smell is given out.

D is a solution in D

Ethanol, ethanal or a secondary alkanol present.

d) C C belongs to Alkanols

3. (a) Explain briefly the observations in each of the following processes:
(i) when carbon(IV) oxide is bubbled through lime water, it turns milky but the milkiness disappears when the gas is bubbled for a long time;
(ii) a precipitate of calcium hydroxide is insoluble in excess sodium hydroxide solution whereas that of lead (II) hydroxide is soluble.

(b) (i) What is a primary standard solution?
(ii) Calculate the mass of sodium trioxocarbonate(V) required to prepare 250 cm3 of 0.15 mol dm-3 solution.
[Na = 23.0; O = 16.0; C = 12.0]

(c) Name one gas that can be collected by:
(i) upward displacement of air;
(ii) downward displacement of air.

WAEC Chemistry Practical Specimen Questions and Answers for 14th September 2021

ANS: (a) (i): Insoluble CaCO3 formation is responsible for the milkiness produce when CO2 is bubbled through lime water while the disappearance of milkiness is due to the formation of soluble Ca(HCO3)2.
Lime water turns milky with CO2 because  CaCO3/ CaCO3(s)  is formed. Milkiness disappear when excess CO2 reacts with CaCO3 in water medium forming the soluble Ca(HCO3)2/ Ca(HCO3)2 (aq).
(ii) Calcium hydroxide is not amphoteric. Does not react with an alkali NaOH whereas lead (II) hydroxide is amphoteric so reacts with excess NaOH.

(b) (i) Primary standard solution is one whose concentration is known and can be used to standardize another solution.
(ii)    M (Na2CO3)    =  106 gmol-1
m(Na2CO3)     =  C x M x V
=   0. 15 x 106 x 0. 25
=   3. 98 g

(c) (i) Carbon(IV) oxide, sulphur (IV) oxide, hydrogen chloride, oxygen, nitrogen (IV) oxide, chlorine, hydrogen sulphide.
(ii) Ammonia, oxygen, hydrogen, methane.
