A1. Some samples of air are homogeneous while others are heterogeneous. Explain how this is possible.
A2. (a) Can a mixture be homogeneous? If so give an example. Explain fully.
(b) Can a pure substance be heterogeneous? If so give an example. Explain fully.
A3. When some silvery aluminium turnings were mixed with powdered yellow sulfur and the mixture heated, a white homogeneous solid formed. On cooling it remained as a white solid. When heated again, it underwent no apparent change. When the experiment was repeated several times using different masses of aluminium turnings and sulfur, the white solid always contained 36% aluminium. Is the white solid a mixture or a compound? Explain why.

Some of the exercises in this set require techniques described in the Supplementary Material section above.

B1.  Brandy (about 40% ethanol) is made by distilling wine (12 to 14% ethanol). In such a distillation is the brandy the distillate or is it the liquid left in the distillation flask? Explain. If you distilled some brandy, would the distillate contain a higher or lower percentage of ethanol than the original brandy? Explain.
B2.2.  A student accidentally poured an aqueous solution of silver nitrate into a bottle of kerosene. How would you recover the aqueous solution?
B3.  When air (after removal of moisture and carbon dioxide and impurities) is cooled to 210oC, a homogeneous liquid mixture (solution) of nitrogen and oxygen forms. If this mixture is slowly warmed until it starts to boil, what would you expect the vapour formed to be pure oxygen, pure nitrogen, or a mixture? If a mixture how would its composition compare with that of the liquid? How could you obtain a sample of one pure substance from the original liquid and what substance would it be? Again use Table1.8 on page 23 to answer this question. Note that there should be minus signs in front of the boiling points of oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen, that is 183, 196 and 253oC.
B4.  In a school laboratory a new supply of small lead pellets was accidentally put into a jar containing iron filings. How would you separate the lead from the iron? More than one way may be possible.
B5. How would you separate a mixture of (a) sand and iodine (neither has a significant solubility in water) (b) sodium chloride and ammonium chloride (both are soluble in water).
B6. When a solution of ammonia was added to a solution of copper sulfate, the resulting mixture had an intense dark blue colour. When a solution of sodium hydroxide was added to a solution of copper sulfate, the resulting mixture had a pale blue milky appearance. Both mixtures remained unchanged for many minutes. Then both mixtures were centrifuged. The deep blue mixture remained unaltered, but the pale blue one separated into a clear solution and a pale blue solid at the bottom of the centrifuge tube. Which, if either, of the original mixtures was heterogeneous and which, if either, was a solution? Explain why.
B7. How would you separate a mixture of carbon, iodine and ammonium chloride. Ammonium chloride is readily soluble in water but insoluble in hexane; iodine is readily soluble in hexane but only slightly soluble in water while carbon is insoluble in both solvents. Both iodine and ammonium chloride sublime.

E1. Each tablet of the Alka Seltzer shown in the photo on page 26 contains 
324 mg aspirin, 1.9 g sodium bicarbonate and 1.05 g citric acid. Calculate the per cent composition of this mixture.
E2. To determine the composition of bagged dry concrete mix (crushed rock,  sand, cement), a pair of students used a set of shop scales to weigh out a sample of the mixture (3.23 kg). They then used a coarse sieve to separate out the crushed rock (aggregate) then weighed the separated rock (1.85 kg). They then used a fine sieve to separate the sand from the cement. Using laboratory scales they found that the sand has a mass of 910 g and the cement 420 g. Determine the percentage composition of the dry concrete mix.
E3. In Exercise E2 above why do you think the sum of the masses of the separated components was less than the starting mass? Suggest another source of error in this experiment. How would it affect the results? How could the experiment be modified to give more accurate results?
E4. Chalcocite is a mineral of copper (not a common one in Australia). It is a compound containing copper and sulfur. When carefully heated in air black chalcocite decomposes to reddish brown copper (with the sulfur vaporising as sulfur dioxide). A 2.36 g sample of chalcocite formed 1.89 g copper. Calculate the percentage copper in chalcocite.
E5. Brass is an alloy (solid solution) of copper and zinc. To determine the composition of a sample of brass filings a chemist mixed 1.72 g of the filings with warm hydrochloric acid; this dissolved the zinc but left the copper unaffected. After complete reaction (no further evolution of gas) the remaining solid was filtered off and weighed: it had a mass of 0.92 g. Calculate the percentage copper in that particular brass.
E6. The experiment in Exercise E5 was repeated on three other samples of brass. Use the results below to show that brass is a mixture and not a compound.
Mass of sample used (g) 1.38 2.04 1.87
Mass of copper left (g) 0.81 1.00 1.05

We often talk about the electron configuration of monatomic ions. To obtain the electron configuration of an ion, we start with the configuration of the atom and add or subtract the necessary number of electrons to form the ion. We add electrons to the next available positions in the energy levels and we remove them from the highest energy level (last in, first out!). Hence give the electron configuration of the following, taking atomic numbers from the Periodic Table if necessary

(a) potassium atom, potassium ion

(c) aluminium atom, aluminium ion
(d) sulfur atom, sulfide ion

Aluninium is a substance in widespread use today in building materials, aircraft construction and household utensils. Aluminium is obtained from bauxite a red brown granular material composed of variable amounts of aluminium oxide, iron oxide and silicaceous material (dirt).
The bauxite is ground up very finely then treated with hot concentrated sodium hydroxide solution. This reacts with the aluminium oxide to form a solution of sodium aluminate. The insoluble iron oxide and dirt are filtered off and disposed of as red mud. Aluminium oxide is recovered by cooling the sodium aluminate solution to precipitate out aluminium hydroxide which is filtered off and heated to form aluminium oxide.
The pure white aluminium oxide known as alumina is then sent to an aluminium smelter where an electric current is passed through a molten mixture of alumina and cryolite a substance containing sodium, aluminium and fluorine in fixed proportions. This process, called electrolysis, breaks the aluminium oxide into aluminium and oxygen. However rather than forming oxygen gas the electrolysis causes the oxygen to combine with the graphite of the electrode to form carbon dioxide.
The sodium aluminate mentioned above is also formed onaluminium utensils cleaned in automatic dishwashers. Dishwashing powder contains variable amounts of detergent, bleaches and sodium hydroxide. The latter substance attacks aluminium to form the aluminate which discolours the utensils.

Answers to Exercises

A1. If the air is clean (just a mixture of gases) then it is homogeneous: if it contains dust particles or water droplets (fog), it is heterogeneous.
A2. (a) Yes; solution of sugar in water, honey, whiskey
(b) No; by definition (Table 1.1 page 6) a pure substance must be homogeneous. It is tempting to think of a glass of water with ice in it as a pure substance, but by our definition it is not because there are two phases present, liquid and solid.
A3. Compound; because its properties are different from those of the starting substances (elements), it does not easily revert to the starting elements and it has constant composition.
B1. Distillate, because the distillate is richer in the more volatile component (the one with the lower boiling point) which is ethanol (alcohol). Higher, same reason.
B2. Allow the two liquids to settle and separate (they are immiscible, then use a separating funnel (page16-17).
B3. A mixture; richer in nitrogen (the one with the lower boiling point); fractionally distil it (page 15), nitrogen
B4. Use a magnet: iron attaches to it, lead does not.
B5. (a) By sublimation; put the mixture in a flask fitted with a cooled test tube as in the photo on page 78; the iodine sublimes on to the cold surface and the sand remains on the bottom of the flask.
(b) Again by sublimation; this time the ammonium chloride vaporises and condenses on the cooled surface.
B6. The milky mixture resulting from adding sodium hydroxide solution to copper sulfate solution is heterogeneous, because it can be separated into a solid and a liquid (solution) by centrifuging; the two solutions reacted to form copper hydroxide, a pale blue solid. The mixture of copper sulfate and ammonia solutions is a true solution: it cannot be separated by centrifuging; the change in colour results from a chemical reaction between the two solutions to form the deep blue solution of a new compound called tetraamminecopper(II) sulfate (or copper tetrammine sulfate).
B7. Add hexane to dissolve the iodine, filter to separate the solids from the iodine in hexane solution. Evaporate off the hexane to recover solid iodine. Then sublime the carbon, ammonium chloride mixture as in answer B5.
Alternatively you could add water to the original mixture to dissolve the ammonium chloride then after filtration separate the carbon and iodine by sublimation.
Still another method would be to separate the iodine by dissolving it in hexane and filtering it off, then adding water to the carbon, ammonium chloride mixture to dissolve the latter and so separate that pair. 
C1. (a) Oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen are gases, water, ethanol, ethyl acetate, ethylene glycol, acetic acid, chloroform and hexane are liquids and the rest are solids.
(b) (i) Water and acetic acid would change to solids
(ii) Sodium and phosphorus would change from solid to liquid; water, ethanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform and hexane would change from liquid to gas (vapour).
D1. 11.4 g/mL
D2. Determine its mass then measure its volume by dropping it into a burette partly filled with water and observing the change in volume (as in exercise D4). If it was gold plated copper its density would be about 9 g/mL. If it was pure gold (24 carat) its density would be 19.3 g/mL. If it was 18 or 9 carat gold its density would be about 17 or 13 g/mL respectively. Density would clearly distinguish between gold plated copper and any of the common gold alloys.
E1. 10% aspirin, 58% sodium bicarbonate, 32% citric acid
E2. 57% aggregate, 28% sand, 13% cement. There has been a 1.5% loss of material during the analysis so it is not as accurate as the measured masses suggest: hence the rounding off in the percentages.
E3. There was some loss of material as dust into the air or stuck to the sieves, or even perhaps some spillage. Some cement would have stayed with the aggregate and sand (stuck on the surface of those coarse particles). This would have meant that the percentage of cement was low. After separating the aggregate and sand wash each with water to remove the cement, remove the solution/suspension of cement in water by sedimentation and decantation (page 13), dry the aggregate and sand then re-weigh each. This would give more accurate measures of the amounts of aggregate and sand; take the true mass of cement as the difference between starting mass and mass of aggregate plus sand.
E4. 80.1%
E5. 53.5% copper
E6. The percentage copper in the three samples is 58.7%, 49.0% and 56.1% (left to right). Combined with the answer in exercise E5, we have clear evidence that the composition of brass is variable. Therefore brass is a mixture (solid solution) and not a compound.
F1. Because they do not agree with the law of conservation of matter (page 31); mass of products is 1.25 g compared with 1.36 g of starting material.
F2. 1.43 g; law of conservation of mass says that the mass of products must equal the mass of reactant.

K6. covalent: b, d, f, i, j
L1. Arsenic tribromide is a covalent molecular compound while magnesium bromide is ionic; ionic compounds consist of an infinite lattice of positive and negative ions: this is hard to break up so ionic compounds have high melting points. However once molten there are mobile ions present that are able to move under the influence of an electric voltage and so ionic compounds conduct electricity.
Covalent molecular compounds consist of discrete small molecules with only weak intermolecular forces between them; hence they melt at low temperatures. These molecules are neutral so such substances do not conduct electricity.

(c) M; low melting point, does not conduct electricity either as a solid or as a liquid, soft
(d) N; very high melting point, does not conduct electricity, extremely hard
