Dear Students,
The difference between success and failure is your attitude towards
success and the strategies that you employ to achieve it. The difference
between success and failure is only a few minutes or a few hours
everyday. You have to keep on striving for success at every conceivable
opportunity. Never postpone your happiness and zest for life and work.
You should make it a habit to enjoy your profession and your job all the
time. Never be a quitter because a quitter can never be a winner.
You should always remember that People live not by the reason of any
care they have for themselves but by the love for them that is in other
people. Have only those people for friends and companions who do
their best to bring out the best in you. They will be of unlimited worth
to you. Such persons understand what life means to you and your goal.
They feel for you as you feel for yourselves. They are the ones who are
bound to you in triumph and disaster. They provide a purpose to live
and break the spell of loneliness. A true friend is worth befriending as
he will always stand by you. But before you expect others to be the right
person to be your friend you must also become one.
Be always committed to your cause. Be so engrossed in your work that
you have hardly any time to think of anything else. The great secret of
success is to do whatever you are to do and do it wholeheartedly. Make
yourself the star of your workplace. For this you must have clear and
precise objectives to be achieved within a definite timeframe. Always
respect and value time. Be resultoriented and keep track of the hours.
Respect the time of others as well as your own. Be always organized
and write down everything you want to accomplish.
Always make an assessment of yesterday's "To Do" list to crosscheck
how realistic it has turned out to be today. This will help you to avoid or
rectify mistakes, if any, in your planning. Keep on visualizing your
goals and lists of the task to be done.
Forever presenting positive ideas to your success.
Yours truly

IITs say no to common engineering
entrance test  Times of India
Times of India has recently reported
that the Indian Institutes of
Technology have trashed the idea of
selection through a single national
admission test for all engineering
colleges. Instead, in a throwback to
the earlier system of a twostage test
(20002004) to enter an IIT, an HRD
ministryappointed committee has
come up with a plan of holding an
"addon" test to select candidates.
TOI has a copy of the interim report
of the committee, which is headed by
IITKharagpur director Damodar
Acharya and comprising IITMadras
director M S Ananth, IITBombay
director Devang Khakhar and IIT
Roorkee head S C Saxena. They wrote
the report after extensive discussion
with state officials, university heads,
faculty and other stakeholders
nationwide.
Scores in a welldesigned National
Aptitude Test should be used to
capture parameters of interest such as
raw intelligence, aptitude, general
awareness, comprehension and written
communication skills. NAT should
not require extensive preparation and
coaching. The questions should be so
designed that it would not require
inputs beyond plus2 level," an HRD
ministryappointed committee said in
its report. The NAT highperformers
will then have to clear another test to
get into IITs and other top institutes.
To soften stress, it has been proposed
to make NAT an online test conducted
throughout the year. Every students'
composite weighted performance
score will then be drawn up; it will be
based on marks in NAT and marks
each student tots up in science
subjects in Class XII boards.
IIT placements 2011: Companies
Back on hiring track
Now it's time for IITs to show their
worth in the corporate world. The B
schoolsare not the only institutes that
are attracting companies to hire their
students. Even IITs are also on the
same track. The improved situations of
the global market have brought back
the companies on the campus of Indian
Institute of Technology (IITs), too.
In last two years the IITs were unable
to place all its students due to lack of
jobs in the market. But this year starts
on a bright note as IIT have already
managed to place almost 80% of
students from the current batch.
Students are also receiving record
salary offers.
SK Srivastave, professorincharge,
training and placement, IITKharagpur
said, "Overall the sentiment has been
more positive. Companies have been
bullish both in terms of making offers
and presenting the salary packages. In
fact, it would not be incorrect to say
that offers are better than those made
prerecession."
This year IITK started its placement
process in the last week of the
December 2010 and recorded highest
pay packages of about $1,35,000 by
Facebook.
Till the last week of the February, more
than 600 companies visited the campus
to recruit students and made almost
1700 offers. Srivastave said, "With 80
per cent of students currently placed,
things seem to be on the upswing. Even
students of those departments that did
not get placed last year, have already
seen 100 per cent placements." This
year the institute invited more
companies on campus for placements.
The placement season, which is still
going on, has witnessed active
participation from more than 200
companies across technology,
research and development, public
sector, financial services,
engineering and processing along
with education related sectors.
Ravi Sinha professorincharge,
placement, IITBombay said, "In
general we have observed a 15 to 20
per cent increase in salary across all
sectors as compared to last year.
With the increase in salary packages
observed last year, the current
packages are generally better than
those offered during the pre
recession period."
IITMadras has placed 80% students
till now, and the placement season is
still on and will last for a month. The
average salary for an IITMadras
graduate is Rs. 7.5 lakhs per annum.
N R Babu, advisor, training and
placement, IITMadras said, "The
highest salary this year stands at Rs
38 lakh so far, with the primary
recruiters coming from information
technology (IT) companies like
Google and Facebook, along with
consultancies like McKinsey," said N
R Babu, advisor, training and
placement, IITMadras.
This year almost all the departments
at IITs have witnessed a good
placement session till now. Salary
levels have gone up more than 25
30%. This year IITRoorkee, has not
seen a big change in the salary
offered to students.
PK Jain, professor and coordinator,
training and placement cell, IIT
Roorkee, said, "The highest salary of
about Rs 40 lakh is comparable to
last year's packages. While saying
that things are back to prerecession
would be overstepping the line, one
can hope that the increase in number
of visiting companies will translate
into better packages soon."

IITKanpur student received Rs.
70 lakh offer from Facebook
If you think that IIT students do not
receive hefty pay packages as B
School pass outs, think again. Social
networking biggy Facebook has made
an offer of about Rs. 70 lakh per
annum to IIT student during the
campus placement.
IITK registrar Sanjeev Kashelkar
said, "M Tech (computer science and
engineering) student Siddharth
Agrawal has been offered the package
(near about Rs 70 lakh)."
He said Facebook has offered many
lucrative offers to other students as
well but the one which it offered to
Agarwal is highest so far. But the
registrar, however, did not disclose the
actual amount. Last week, Facebook
had offered a similar package to
an IITKharagpur student.
The placement session in the IIT took
off on 2nd December, 2011 with more
than 950 graduates and post graduates
competing for jobs in highprofile
companies like Microsoft, GE, Infosys
and TCS.
On the first day of placement, more
than 100 students were placed with 15
students being selected by Microsoft.
More than 400 students have been
selected so far since the placement
process started, the registrar added.
Almost 200 companies are expected to
visit the institute to hire aspirants in
the remaining days. The placement
session would end on 22nd December
IIT JEE to go Online?
The Indian Institutes of Technology are
considering conducting an online joint
entrance examination (JEE), on the
lines of the Indian Institutes of
Management's Common Admission
Test. While the common admission test
(CAT) for entry into IIMs went online
three years ago and even AIEEE has
gone online in a few centres, the IITs
are yet to take the big step.
This step has been taken by IITDelhi
the organisers of IITJEE 2012. The
institute has invited all IIT directors
for a workshop where an online model
will be demonstrated. The JEE office is
hosting the workshop. Sources
from IITDelhi have confirmed that
Education Testing Services (ETS),
which conducts the GREand several
other popular global online entrance
examinations, will make a presentation
at the workshop.
Though IIT officials are denying with
plans to go online, a senior official
from one of the IITs claimed that the
workshop was scheduled to discuss the
possibilities of an online examination
for JEE. "We might just discuss the
feasibility. No decision has been taken
yet," said the official.
There are many reasons why the idea of
online IIT JEE is not finding favours
among experts. Sharing his thought
with The Times of India, a senior IITB
professor said, "An online exam may or
may not work for JEE.
While CATfaced teething problems
initially, it is stabilized now. For an
exam, where you need to calculate a
lot, pen and paper seems to be a better
option. But students these days are well
versed with technology and in future,
everything might be computerized."
IIT Placements: No slowdown
blues for IIT students
The students of Indian Institute of
Technology have a good reason to
smile as the placement season for IITs
have started. The leading engineering
institutes are off to notice good final
placements with IIT Bombay student
bagged the highest job offer so far from
Microsoft for more than Rs. 52 Lakh
($ 100,000) for a position at the
company's head office in Washington.
IIT Bombay students are very much
aware of the offers, "The students are
gungho about the placements this year.
There is no sign of any slowdown. We
have received a good number of offers
from international companies including
some good startups. The IITs has begun
their final placements which will last
till month of June, 2012. IIT Bombay
placement chairperson, Ravi Sinha said,
"The interest among companies
for IIT students remains very strong.
We are very satisfied with the response
we have received from companies. We
see anywhere between a 1020 per
cent increase in salary levels for
students."
At IIT Bombay, there are over 1,300
students will participate in the
placement where 200 companies will
participate in the placement session.
At IIT Roorkee, the highest offer so
far is Rs. 32 lakh from
Schlumberger, an international
supplier of technology, integrated
project management and information
solutions to energy companies. IIT
Roorkee has received confirmation
from more than 140 companies
which will be on campus to recruit
more than 1,200 students.
IIT Roorkee placement chairperson
said, "Response from companies
have been very good. Though salary
levels more or less remain the same
as last year, more number of
companies are participating on
campus this year."
IIT Delhi has confirmed the
participation of 300 companies so
far. There are around 1,200 institutes
in IIT Delhi which will participate in
the placement process. Kushal Sen,
placement chairperson at IIT Delhi,
"Response from companies is very
good. But we do not see any drastic
change in the salary levels. While it
may not decrease, a slight increase
could be a possibility."
At IIT Madras, some foreign
companies from Korea and Japan
will also participate in final
placement session. There are almost
1,200 students who will participate in
the placement session. Placement
advisor said there are no sign of a
slowdown visible in the placement
session.

Modern Physics :
The particle behavior of light is proven by the
photoelectric effect.
A photon is a particle of light {wave packet}.
Large objects have very short wavelengths
when moving and thus can not be observed
behaving as a wave. (DeBroglie Waves)
All electromagnetic waves originate from
accelerating charged particles.
The frequency of a light wave determines its
energy (E = hf).
The lowest energy state of a atom is called the
ground state.
Increasing light frequency increases the kinetic
energy of the emitted photoelectrons.
As the threshold frequency increase for a
photocell (photo emissive material) the work
function also increases.
Increasing light intensity increases the number
of emitted photoelectrons but not their KE.
Mechanics :
Centripetal force and centripetal acceleration
vectors are toward the center of the circle
while the velocity vector is tangent to the
circle.
An unbalanced force (object not in equilibrium)
must produce acceleration.
The slope of the distancetine graph is velocity.
The equilibrant force is equal in magnitude but
opposite in direction to the resultant vector.
Momentum is conserved in all collision
systems.
Magnitude is a term use to state how large a
vector quantity is.

are l and P

Sol. Since, the vessel is nonconducting, therefore, the
system of H

surroundings. But piston have low thermal
conductivity, therefore, heat gases in each chamber
becomes equal.
When pistons move, no net work is done by the
system of gases though work is done by gas in one
chamber on that in another chamber. Hence, internal
energy of the system remains constant.

of source along direction of sound propagation also
varies with time. Minimum frequency is received

of sound propagation which corresponds to the

Sol. Incident rays are first refracted from air to
transparent sheets and then into water. Rays
refracted into water interfere with each other on the
screen and an interference pattern is formed on it.
Fringe width of that interference pattern is given by

where ' is wavelength of rays in medium
between slits and screen which is water in this
particular problem.

calculate principal quantum number of initially excited

Wave front is locus of points in the same phase.
A distance source produce a plane wave front.
Wave front for a parallel beam of light is plane.
The angle between ray and wave front is 90
Huygen's principle:
Huygen's principle is a geometrical method to find
secondary wave front produced by a primary wave
front.
Thin lines shows the rays of light.
Dotted line shows the wavefronts.
Interference of light :
(a) Redistribution of light energy i.e. alternate
maximum and minima).
Conditions for two light waves producing
interference is that
(i) Wave should be of same wavelength/frequency.
(ii) Waves should be travelling in the same direction.
(iii)Wave should have a constant phase difference
For the above conditions the two source must be
coherent and that is possible when we make two
sources out of a single source of light.
For monochromatic light we get alternate maxima
and minima of same colour. For white light we
get white central fringe flanked by coloured
fringes because fringe width of different colour is
different due to different wavelengths.

Problem Solving Strategy : Mechanical Waves
Identify the relevant concepts : Wave problems fall
into two broad categories. Kinematics problems are
concerned with describing wave motion; they involve
wave speed v, wave length (or wave number k),
frequency f (or angular frequency ), and amplitude
A. They may also involve the position, velocity, and
acceleration of individual particles in the medium.
Dynamics problems also use concepts from Newton's
laws such as force and mass. In this chapter we'll
encounter problems that involve the relation of wave
speed to the mechanical properties of the wave
medium. We'll get into these relations.
As always, make sure that you identify the target
variable(s) for the problem. In some cases it will be
the wavelength, frequency, or wave speed; in other
XtraEdge for IITJEE 25 JANUARY 2012
cases you'll be asked to find an expression for the
wave function.
Set up the problem using the following steps :
Make a list of the quantities whose value are
given. To help you visualize the situation, you'll
find it useful to sketch graphs of y versus x (fig.
a) and of y versus (fig. b). Label your graphs with
the values of the known quantities.

Decide which equations you'll need to use. If any
two of v, f, and are given, you'll need to use eq.
v = f (periodic wave) to find the third quantity. If
the problem involves the angular frequency and
/ or the wave number k, you'll need to use the
definitions of those quantities and eq. ( = vk).
You may also need the various forms of the wave
function given in Eqs.
y(x, t) = A cos

.

\

t

y(x, t) = A cos 2

\

and y(x, t) = A cos (kx t).
If the wave speed is not given, and you don't have
enough information to determine it using v = f,
you may be able to find v using the relationship
between v and the mechanical properties of the
system.
Execute the solution as follows : Solve for the
unknown quantities using the equations you've
selected. In some problems all you need to do is find
the value of one of the wave variables.
If you're asked to determine the wave function, you
need to know A and any two of v, and f(or v, k and
). Once you have this information, you can use it in
eq. ( = vk). You may also need the various forms of
the wave function given in Eqs.
y(x, t) = A cos

y(x, t) = A cos 2

\

T

and y(x, t) = A cos (kx t)
to get the specific wave function for the problem at
hand. Once you have that, you can find the value of y
at any point (value of x) and at any time by
substituting into the wave function.
Evaluate your answer : Look at your results with a
critical eye. Check to see whether the values of v, f,
and (or v, , and k) agree with the relationships
given in eq. . v = f or w = vk. If you've calculated the
wave function, check one or more special cases for
which you can guess what the results ought to be.
Problem Solving Strategy : Standing waves
Identify the relevant concepts : As with traveling
waves, it's useful to distinguish between the purely
kinematic quantities, such as wave speed v,
wavelength , and frequency f, and the dynamic
quantities involving the properties of the medium,
such as F and for transverse waves on a string.
Once you decide what the target variable is, try to
determine whether the problem is only kinematic in
nature or whether the properties of the medium are
also involved.
Set up the problem using the following steps :
In visualizing nodes and antinodes in standing
waves, it is always helpful to draw diagrams. For
a string you can draw the shape at one instant and
label the nodes N and antinodes A. The distance
between two adjacent nodes or two adjacent
antinodes is always /2, and the distance between
a node and the adjacent antinode is always /4.
Decide which equation you'll need to use. The
wave function for the standing wave is almost
always useful ex. y(x, t) = (A
SW
sin kx) sin t.
You can compute the wave speed if you know
either and f (or, equivalently, k = 2/ and
= 2f) or the properties of the medium (for a
string. F and .)
Execute the solution as follows: Solve for the
unknown quantities using the equations you've
selected. Once you have the wave function, you can
find the value of the displacement y at any point in
the wave medium (value of x) and at any time. You
can find the velocity of a particle in the wave
medium by taking the partial derivative of y with
respect to time. To find the acceleration of such a
particle, take the second partial derivative of y with
respect to time.
Evaluate your answer : Compare your numerical
answers with your diagram. Check that the wave
function is compatible with the boundary conditions
(for example, the displacement should be zero at a
fixed end).
Problem Solving Strategy : Sound Intensity
Identify the relevant concepts : The relationships
between intensity and amplitude of a sound wave are
rather straightforward. Quite a few other quantities
are involved in these relationships, however, so it's
particularly important to deciede which is your target
variable.
Set up the problem using the following steps :
XtraEdge for IITJEE 26 JANUARY 2012
Sort the various physical quantities into
categories. The amplitude is described by A or
p
max
, and the frequency f can be determined from
, k, or . These quantites are related through the
wave speed v, which in turn is determined by the
properties of the medium: B and for a liquid; ,
T, and M for a gas.
Determine which quantities are given and which
are the unknown target variables. Then start
looking for relationships that take you where you
want to go.
Execute the solution as follows: Use the equations
you've selected to solve for the target variables. Be
certain that all of the quantities are expressed in the
correct units. In particular, if temperature is used to
calculate the speed of sound in a gas, make sure that
it is expressed in Kelvins (Celsius temperature plus
273.15).
Evaluate your answer: There are multiple
relationships among the quantities that describe a
wave. Try using an alternative one to check your
results.
Problem Solving Strategy : Doppler Effect
Identify the relevant concepts : The Doppler effect is
relevant whenever the source of waves, the wave
detector (listener), or both are in motion.
Set up the problem using the following steps :
Establish a coordinate system. Define the positive
direction to be the direction from the listener to
the source, and make sure you know the signs of
all relevant velocities. A velocity in the direction
from the listener toward the source is positive; a
velocity in the opposite direction is negative.
Also, the velocities must all be measured relative
to the air in which the sound is traveling.
Use consistent notation to identify the various
quantities: subscript S for source, L for listener.
Determine which unknown quantities are your
target variables.
Execute the solutions :
Use eq. f
L
=
S
L
v v
v v
+
+
f

to relate the frequencies at
the source and the listener, the sound speed, and
the velocities of the source and the listener. If the

measured by the listener using Eq.

When a wave is reflected from a surface, either
stationary or moving, the analysis can be carried
out in two steps. In the first, the surface plays the
role of listener; the frequency with which the
wave crests arrive at the surface is f
L
. Then think
of the surface as a new source, emitting waves
with this same frequency f
L
. Finally, determine
what frequency is heard by a listener detecting
this new wave.
Evaluate your answer: Ask whether your final result
makes sense. If the source and the listener are
moving towards each other, f
L
> F
S
; if they are
moving apart, f
L
< f
S
. If the source and the listener
have no relative motion, f

Definition and Classification :
Carbohydrates are polyhydroxy aldehydes,
polyhydroxy ketones, or compounds that can be
hydrolyzed to them. A carbohydrate that cannot be
hydrolyzed to simpler compounds is called a
monosaccharide. A carbohydrate that can be
hydrolyzed to two monosaccharide molecules is
called a disaccharide. A carbohydrate that can be
hydrolyzed to many monosaccharide molecules is
called a polysaccharide.
A monosaccharide may be further classified. If it
contains an aldehyde group, it is known as an aldose;
if it contains a keto group, it is known as a ketose.
Depending upon the number of carbon atoms. It
contains, a monosaccharide is known as a triose,
tetrose, pentose, hexose, and so on. An aldohexose,
for example, is a sixcarbon monosaccharide
containing an aldehyde group; a ketopentose is a
fivecarbon monosaccharide containing a keto group.
Most naturally occurring monosaccharides are
pentoses or hexoses.
Carbohydrates that reduce Fehlings (or Benedicts)
or Tollens reagent are known as reducing sugars.
All monosaccharides, whether aldose or ketose, are
known as reducing sugars. Most disaccharides are
reducing sugars; sucrose (common table sugar) is a
notable exception, for it is a nonreducing sugar.
(+)Glucose : an aldohexose :
Because it is the unit of which starch, cellulose, and
glycogen are made up, and because of its special role
in biological processes, (+)glucose is by far the most
abundant monosaccharide there are probably more
(+)glucose units in nature than any other organic
groupand by far the most important
monosaccharide.

glucose had been definitely proved to have structure.

D(+)Glucose
By 1895 it had become clear that the picture of D
(+)glucose as a pentahydroxy aldehyde had to be
modified.
Among the facts that had still to be accounted for
were the following:
(a) D(+)Glucose fails to undergo certain
reactions typical of aldehydes. Although it is
readily oxidized, it gives a negative Schiff test and
does not form a bisulfite addition product.
(b) D(+)Glucose exists in two isomeric forms
which undergo mutarotation. When crystals of
ordinary D(+)glucose of m.p. 146C are dissolved
in water, the specific rotation gradually drops from an
initial + 112 to + 52.7. On the other hand, when
crystals of D(+)glucose of m.p. 150C (obtained by
crystallization at temperatures above 98C) are
dissolved in water, the specific rotation gradually
rises from an initial + 19 to + 52.7. The form with
the higher positive rotation is called D(+)glucose
and that with lower rotation D(+)glucose. The
change in rotation of each of these to the equilibrium
value is called mutarotation.
(c) D(+)Glucose forms two isomeric methyl D
glucosides. Aldehydes react with alcohols in the
presence of anhydrous HCl to form acetals. If the
alcohol is, say methanol, the acetal contains two
methyl groups :

Aldehyde Hemiacetal Acetal
When D(+)glucose is treated with methanol and
HCl, the product, methyl Dglucoside, contains only
one CH
3
group; yet it has properties resembling
those of a full acetal. It does not spontaneously revert
to aldehyde and alcohol on contact with water, but
requires hydrolysis by aqueous acids.
Furthermore, not just one but two of these
monomethyl derivatives of D(+)glucose are known,
one with m.p. 165C and specific rotation + 158, and
the other with m.p. 107 C and specific rotation 33.
The isomer of higher positive rotation is called
methyl Dglucoside, and the other is called methyl
Dglucoside. These glucosides do not undergo
mutarotation, and do not reduce Tollens or Fehlings
reagent.

D(+)Glucose is the hemiacetal corresponding to
reaction between the aldehyde group and the C5
hydroxyl group of the openchain structure. It has a
cyclic structure simply because aldehyde and alcohol
are part of the same molecule.
There are two isomeric forms of D(+)glucose
because this cyclic structure has one more chiral
centre than Fishers original openchain structure. 
D(+)Glucose and D(+)glucose are
diastereomers, differing in configuration about C1.
Such a pair of distereomers are called anomers.
As hemiacetals, and D(+) glucose are readily
hydrolyzed by water. In aqueous solution either
anomer is converted via the openchain forminto
an equilibrium mixture containing both cyclic
isomers. This mutarotation results from the ready
opening and closing of the hemiacetal ring.
The typical aldehyde reactions of D(+)glucose
osazone formation, and perhaps reduction of Tollens
and Fehlings reagents are presumably due to a
small amount of openchain compound, which is
replenished as fast as it is consumed. The
concentration of this openchain structure, however,
is too low (less than 0.5%) for certain easily
reversible aldehyde reactions like bisulfite addition
and the Schiff test.
Disaccharides :
Disaccharides are carbohydrates that are made up of
two monosaccharide units. On hydrolysis a molecule
of disaccharide yields two molecules of
monosaccharide.
We shall study four disaccharides : (+)maltose (malt
sugar), (+)cellobiose, (+)lactose (milk sugar), and
(+)sucrose (cane or beet sugar).
(+)Maltose :
(+)Maltose can be obtained, among other products,
by partial hydrolysis of starch in aqueous acid. (+)
Maltose is also formed in one stage of the
fermentation of starch to ethyl alcohol; here
hydrolysis is catalyzed by the enzyme diastase, which
is present in malt (sprouted barley).
Let us look at some of the facts from which the
structure of (+)maltose has been deduced.
(+)Maltose has the molecular formula C
12
H
22
O

. It
reduces Tollens and Fehlings reagents and hence is
a reducing sugar. It reacts with phenylhydrazine to
yield an osazone, C

H
20
O

(=NNHC

)
2
. It is
oxidized by bromide water to a monocarboxylic acid,
(C
11
H
21
O
10
)COOH, maltobionic acid. (+)Maltose
exists in alpha ([] = + 168) and beta ([] = + 112)
forms which undergo mutarotation in solution
(equilibrium [] = + 136).
(+)Cellobiose :
When cellulose (cotton fibers) is treated for several
days with sulfuric acid and acetic anhydride, a
combination of acetylation and hydrolysis takes
place; there is obtained the octaacetate of (+)
cellobiose. Alkaline hydrolysis of the octaacetate
yields (+)cellobiose itself.
Like (+)maltose, (+)cellobiose has the molecular
formula C
12
H
22
O
11
, is a reducing sugar, forms an
osazone, exists in alpha and beta forms that undergo
mutarotation, and can be hydrolyzed to two
molecules of D(+)glucose. The sequence of
oxidation, methylation, and hydrolysis (as described
for (+)maltose) shows that (+)cellobiose contains
two pyranose rings and glucoside linkage to an OH
group on C4.
(+)Cellobiose differs from (+)maltose in one
respect : it is hydrolyzed by the enzyme emulsin
(from bitter almonds), not by maltase. Since emulsin
is known to hydrolyze only glucoside linkages.
(+)Lactose :
(+)Lactose makes up about 5% of human milk and
of cows milk. It is obtained commercially as a by
product of cheese manufacture, being found in the
whey, the aqueous solution that remains after the
milk proteins have been coagulated. Milk sours when
lactose is converted into lactic acid (sour, like all
acids) by bacterial action (e.g., by Lactobacillus
bulgaricus).
(+)Lactose has the molecular formula C
12
H
22
O
11
, is a
reducing sugar, forms an osazone, and exists in alpha
and beta forms which undergo mutarotation. Acidic
hydrolysis or treatment with emulsin (which splits
linkages only) converts (+)lactose into equal
amounts of D(+)glucose and D(+)galactose. (+)
Lactose is evidently a glycoside formed by the
union of a molecule of D(+)glucose and a molecule
of D(+)galactose.
XtraEdge for IITJEE 30 JANUARY 2012
(+)Sucrose :
(+)Sucrose is our common table sugar, obtained
from sugar cane and sugar beets. Of organic
chemicals, it is the one produced in the largest
amount in pure form.
(+)Sucrose has the molecular formula C
12
H
22
O
11
. It
does not reduce Tollens or Fehlings reagent. It is a
nonreducing sugar, and in this respect it differs from
the other disaccharides we have studied. Moreover,
(+)sucrose does not form an osazone, does not exist
in anomeric forms, and does not show mutarotation
in solution. All these facts indicate that (+)sucrose
does not contain a freealdehyde or ketone group.
(+)Sucrose is made up of a Dglucose unit and a D
fructose unit; since there is no free carbonyl group,
if must be both a Dglucoside and a Dfructoside.
Polysaccharides :
Polysaccharides are compounds made up of many
hundreds or even thousandsmonosaccharide units
per molecule.
Polysaccharides are naturally occurring polymers,
which can be considered as derived from aldoses or
ketoses by polymerization with loss of water. A
polysaccharide derived from hexoses, for example,
has the general formula (C
6
H
10
O
5
)
n
.
The most important polysaccharides are cellulose and
starch. Both are produced in plants from carbon
dioxide and water by the process of photosynthesis.
Starch :
Starch occurs as granules whose size and shape are
characteristic of the plant from which the starch is
obtained. When intact, starch granules are insoluble
in cold water; if the outer membrane has been broken
by grinding, the granules swell in cold water and
form a gel.
In general, starch contains about 20% of a water
soluble fraction called amylose, and 80% of a water
insoluble fraction called amylopectin. These two
fractions appear to correspond to different
carbohydrates of high molecular weight and formula
(C
6
H
10
O
5
)
n
. Upon treatment with acid or under the
influence of enzymes, the components of starch are
hydrolyzed progressively to dextrin (a mixture of
lowmolecularweight polysaccharides), (+)maltose,
and finally D(+)glucose. (A mixture of all these is
found in corn sirup, for example.) Both amylose and
amylopectin are made up of D(+)glucose units, but
differ in molecular size and shape.
Cellulose :
Cellulose is the chief component of wood and plant
fibers; cotton, for instance, is nearly pure cellulose. It
is insoluble in water and tasteless; it is a non
reducing carbohydrate. These properties, in part at
least, are due to its extremely high molecular weight.
Cellulose has the formula (C
6
H
10
O
5
)
n
. Complete
hydrolysis by acid yields D(+)glucose as the only
monosaccharide. Hydrolysis of completely
methylated cellulose gives a high yield of 2, 3, 6tri
OmethylDglucose. Like starch, therefore, cellulose
is made up of chains of Dglucose units, each unit
joined by a glycoside linkage to C4 of the next.
Cellulose differs from starch, however, in the
configuration of the glycoside linkage. Upon
treatment with acetic anhydride and sulfuric acid,
cellulose yields octaOacetylcellobiose.
Reactions of cellulose :
Like any alcohol, cellulose form esters. Treatment
with a mixture of nitric and sulfuric acid converts
cellulose into cellulose nitrate. The properties and
uses of the product depend upon the extent of
nitration.
In the presence of acetic anhydride, acetic acid, and a
little sulfuric acid, cellulose is converted into the
triacetate. Partial hydrolysis removes some of the
acetate groups, degrades the chains to smaller
fragments (of 200300 units each), and yields the
vastly important commercial cellulose acetate
(roughly a diacetate). Cellulose acetate is less
flammable than cellulose nitrate and has replaced the
nitrate in many of its applications, in safetytype
photographic film, for example. When a solution of
cellulose acetate in acetone is forced through the fine
holes of a spinnerette, the solvent evaporates and
leaves solid filaments. Threads from these filaments
make up the material known as acetate rayon.
Industrially, cellulose is alkylated to ethers by action of
alkyl chlorides (cheaper than sulfates) in the presence of
alkali. Considerable degradation of the long chains is
unavoidable in these reactions. Methyl, ethyl, and
benzyl ethers of cellulose are important in the
production of textiles, films, and various plastic objects.

HCl interferes in this test. Hence, before the test

Sodium carbonate extract :
One part of the given substance is mixed with
about 3 parts of sodium carbonate and nearly 10
to 15 ml. of distilled water. The contents are then
heated for 1015 minutes and filtered. The filtrate
is known as sodium carbonate extract or soda
extract and this contains soluble sodium salts due
to exchange of partners in between sodium
carbonate and salts.

The carbonates of the cations of the mixtures are
mostly insoluble in water and are obtained in the
residue. On the other hand, sodium salts of the
anions (acidic radicals) of the mixture being
soluble in water are obtained in the filtrate.
The sodium carbonate extract is basic in nature
and before it is used for the analysis of a
particular acidic radical, it is first neutralised by
the addition of small quantity of an appropriate
acid. The acid is added to the extract till the
effervescence cease to evolve.
Advantages of preparing sodium carbonate
extract
The preparation of sodium carbonate extract
affords a convenient method for bringing the
anions of the mixture into solution which were
otherwise insoluble with cation of salt.
It removes the basic radicals (usually coloured)
which interferes in the usual tests of some of the
acidic radicals.
The residue can be used for the tests of basic
radicals of I to VI groups. Such a solution does
not involve the problem of removing interfering
radicals like oxalate, fluoride, borate and
phosphate.

1. (a) The haloform test depends upon the fact three
hydrogens on the same carbon atom are successively
replaced by halogen. Using acetone as an example,
show why the carbon that suffers the initial
substitution should be the preferred site of further
substitution.
(b) The haloform test also depends upon the ease
with which the trihalomethyl ketone produced in (a)
is cleaved by base. What is the most likely
mechanism for this cleavage ? What factor makes
such a reaction possible in this particular case ?

Thus both essential aspects of the haloform reaction
regiospecificity of halogenation, and cleavageare
controlled by the same factor : stabilization of a
carbanion through electron withdrawal by halogen.
2. Treatment of ethyl chlorohydrin with concentrated
aqueous sodium hydroxide gives ethylene oxide. (a)
Show all steps in a likely mechanism or mechanisms
for this conversion. This is an adaptation of what
synthesis ? (b) Using this approach, show all steps in
the synthesis of propylene oxide from isopropyl
alcohol.
Sol. (a) The conversion of halohydrins into epoxides by
the action of base is simply an adaptation of the
Williamson synthesis; a cyclic compound is obtained
because both alcohol and halide happen to be part of
the same molecule. In the presence of hydroxide ion
a small proportion of the alcohol exists as alkoxide;
this alkoxide displaces halide ion from another
portion of the same molecule to yield the cyclic ether.

Since halohydrins are nearly always prepared from
alkenes by addition of halogen and water to the
carboncarbon double bond, this method amounts to
the conversion of an alkene into an epoxide.

compounds, such as peroxy benzoic acid.)

On Pi Day (March 14 or 314) in 1879, a baby was
born in Ulm, Germany to a German couple whose
name meant "one stone". That baby was Albert
Einstein!
occurs naturally in tables of death, in what is
known as a Gaussian distribution of deaths in a
population; that is, when a person dies, the event
'feels' Pi.
The symbol for Pi was introduced by the English
mathematician William Jones in 1706.
Mathematician John Conway pointed out that if you
break down the digits of Pi into blocks of ten, the
probability that one of those blocks will contain ten
distinct digits is about one in 40,000. Curiously, this
first happens in the 7th block of ten digits.
There is the little rhyme to help the memorisation of

Now, I wish I could recollect pi. "Eureka," cried the

1. Let g : R R be given by g(x) = 4x + 3.
If g
n
(x) = gogog.....og (x), show that
ntimes
g
n
(x) = 4
n
x + (4
n
1).
If g
n
(x) denotes the inverse of g
n
(x), prove that
g
n
(x) = 4
n
x + (4
n
1) for all x R.
Sol. We shall prove the result by mathematical induction
on n.
We have,
g(x) = 4x + 3
gog (x) = g (g (x))
= g (4x + 3)
= 4 (4x + 3) + 3 = 4
2
x + 15
= 4
2
x + (4
2

So the result is true for n = 2.
Let the result be true for n = m. Then,
g
m
(x) = 4
m
x + (4
m
1) for all x R
Now,
g
m+1
(x) = g
m
o g(x)
= g

(g(x))
= g
m
(4x + 3)
= 4
m
(4x + 3) + 4

= 4
m + 1
x + 4
m
3 + 4
m
1
= 4
m + 1
x + 4
m+1
1
So, the result is true for n = m + 1
Hence, by the principle of mathematical induction on
n, we have
g
n
(x) = 4
n
x + (4
n
1) for all n N.
In order to find the inverse of g
n
(x), we proceed as
follows :
Let g
n
(x) = y. Then,
g
n
(x) = y
4
n
x + (4
n
1) = y
4
n
x = y 4
n
+ 1
x = 4
n
y 1 + 4
n
g
n
(y) = 4
n
y + 4

Hence, g

2. If f (x) = {x x 1}

Clearly, f (x) is a constant function for all x < 0 and
all x 1. Between 0 and 1 the function represents a
parabola having its vertex at (1/2, 0). Thus the graph
of f (x) is as shown in figure.
y

From the graph of y = f (x), we observe that it is
everywhere continuous but not differentiable at
x = 0, 1.
f '(x) =

6. What can be the maximum population of a country in
which no two persons have an identical set of teeth?
(Disregard the shape and size of the teeth. Take only
the positioning of the teeth in consideration. Also
assume that there is no persons without teeth and no
person has more than 32 teeth)
Sol. There are 32 places for the teeth in the mouth. For
each places, we have two choices, either there is a
tooth or there is no tooth at the place. Therefore, the
number of ways to fill up 32 places is 2
32
. It is given
that there is not person without a tooth. Therefore,
the maximum population of the country in which no
two persons have identical set of teeth is 2

Order of a Differential Equation :
The order of a differential equation is the order of the
highest derivative occurring in the differential
equation. For example, the order of above differential
equations are 1, 1, 4 and 2 respectively.
Degree of a Differential Equation :
The degree of the differential equation is the degree
of the highest derivative when differential
coefficients are free from radical and fraction. For
example, the degree of above differential equations
are 1, 1, 3 and 2 respectively.
Linear and Nonlinear Differential Equation :
A differential equation in which the dependent
variable and its differential coefficients occurs only
in the first degree and are not multiplied together is
called a linear differential equation. The general and

Solution of Differential Equation :
A solution of a differential equation is any function
which when put into the equation changes it into an
identity.
General and particular solution :
The solution which contains a number of arbitrary
constant equal to the order of the equation is called
general solution by giving particular values to the
constants are called particular solutions.

Some Important Definitions and Formulae :
Measurement of angles : The angles are measured
in degrees, grades or in radius which are defined as
follows:
Degree : A right angle is divided into 90 equal parts
and each part is called a degree. Thus a right angle is
equal to 90 degrees. One degree is denoted by 1.
A degree is divided into sixty equal parts is called a
minute. One minute is denoted by 1.
A minute is divided into sixty equal parts and each
parts is called a second. One second is denoted by 1.
Thus,
1 right angle = 90 (Read as 90 degrees)
1 = 60 (Read as 60 minutes)
1 = 60 (Read as 60 seconds).
Grades : A right angle is divided into 100 equal parts
and each part is called a grade. Thus a right angle is
equal to 100 grades. One grade is denoted by 1
g
.
A grade is divided into 100 equal parts and each part
is called a minute and is denoted by 1.
A minute is divided into 100 equal parts and each
part is called a second and is denoted by 1"
Thus,
1 right angled = 100
g
(Read as 100 grades)
1
g
= 100 (Read as 100 minutes)
1 = 100 (Read as 100 seconds)
Radians : A radian is the angle subtended at the
centre of a circle by an arc equal in length to the
radius of the circle.
Domain and Range of a Trigono. Function :
If f : X Y is a function, defined on the set X, then
the domain of the function f, written as Domf is the
set of all independent variables x, for which the
image f(x) is well defined element of Y, called the co
domain of f.
Range of f : X Y is the set of all images f(x) which
belongs to Y, i.e.,
Range f = {f(x) Y : x X} Y
The domain and range of trigonmetrical functions are
tabulated as follows :

Since sin

A + cos
2
A = 1, hence each of sin A and
cos A is numerically less than or equal to unity.
i.e.
 sin A 1 and  cos A  1
or 1 sin A 1 and 1 cos A 1
Note : The modulus of real number x is defined as
x = x if x 0 and x = x if x < 0.
Since sec A and cosec A are respectively
reciprocals of cos A and sin A, therefore the
values of sec A and cosec A are always
numerically greater than or equal to unity i.e.
sec A 1 or sec A 1
and cosec A 1 or cosec A 1
In other words, we never have
1 < cosec A < 1 and 1 < sec A < 1.

Passage # 3 (Ques. 21 to 23)
It occasionaly happens that a reaction proceeds much
faster or much slower than expected on basis of
electrical effects alone. It can be shown that steric
effects are influencing the rate also. An example of
such an effect coming into play is hydrolysis of alkyl
halide by S

involves ionization of alkyl halide to carbocation,
thus relieving strain due to change in hybridisation
from sp

If you want to have some fun with 2:
start with the very rough approximation 7/5. Then
(7+5+5)/(7+5) = 17/12
(17+12+12)/(17+12) = 41/29
(41+29+29)/(41+29) = 99/70

ISO paper sizes are all based on a single aspect ratio
of the square root of two, or approximately 1:1.4142.
Basing paper upon this ratio was conceived by Georg
Lichtenberg in 1786, and at the beginning of the 20th
century, Dr Walter Porstmann turned Lichtenberg's
idea into a proper system of different paper sizes.

29. A transformer is based upon the principle of mutual
inductance i.e. whenever flux linking with secondary
coil changes because of changing current in the
primary winding, an e.m.f. is induced in the secondary
winding.

When alternating supply is given to the primary of a
transformer, alternating current in the winding
produces changing flux. This changing magnetic field
travels through the core of the transformer and links
up with the secondary winding. An e.m.f. is induced
in the secondary of the windings. This induced e.m.f.
is directly proportional to number of turns of the
secondary. A transformer handles almost same power
in the secondary because of minimum loss of input
power given to the primary.

9. Haloarenes are much less reactive than haloalkanes
towards nucleophilic substitution reactions due to the
following reasons :
(i) Resonance effect
(ii) Difference in hybridization of carbon atom in CX
bond
(iii) Instability of phenyl cation.
(i) Resonance effect : In haloarenes, the electron pairs
on halogen atom are in conjugation with electrons
of the ring and the following resonating structure are
possible.
:Cl:

Cl

CCl bond requires a partial double bond character
due to resonance. As a result the bond cleavage in
haloarene is difficult than haloalkane and therefore,
are less reactive towards nucleophilic substitution
reaction.
10. (i) In an arylamine, owing to resonance, the lone pair
of electrons on the nitrogen atom is less available for
protonation. Moreover, the small positive charge on
the nitrogen atom tends

3. It is miscible with water and large number of
organic solvents.
