should be thorough with the basic concepts of the
chapter explained in X NCERT.
CONSERVATION OF ELECTRIC CHARGE
Whenever two bodies are charged by rubbing, one gets
positively charged and the other gets negatively
charged. The net charge on the two bodies, however,
remains zerothe same as that before rubbing. In other
words, charge is conserved. It can neither be created
nor be destroyed. The only thing that happens on
rubbing is that charged particles (electrons) get
transferred from one body to the other.
In some phenomena, charged particles are created.
But even then the conservation of charge holds. For
example, a free neutron converts itself into an electron
and the proton taken together is also zero. So, there is
no change in the conversion of a neutron to an electron
and a proton.
COULOMBS LAW
Charles Augustine de Coulomb studied the interaction
forces of charged particles in detail in 1784. He used a
torsion balance. On the basis of his experiments he
established Coulombs law. According to this law the
magnitude of the electric force between two point
charges is directly proportional to the product of the
magni tude of the two charges and i nversel y
proportional to the square of the distance between
them and acts along the straight line joining the two
charges.
In mathematical terms, the force that each of the two
point charges q
1
and q
2
at a distance r apart exerts on
the other can be expressed as
F =

This force is repulsive for like charges and attractive
for unlike charges.
Where k is a constant of proportionality. k =

The force is directed along the line joining the centres
of the two charged particles.

PROPERTIES OF ELECTRIC FIELD INTENSITY
(i) It is a vector quantity. Its direction is the same
as the force experienced by positive charge.
(ii) Electric field due to positive charge is always
away from it while due to negative charge always
towards it.
(iii) Its S.I. unit is Newton/Coulomb.
(iv) Electric force on a charge q placed in a region
of electric field at a point where the electric field
intensity is E
is given by E q F
= .
Electric force on point charge is in the same
direction of electric field on positive charge
and in opposite direction on a negative charge.

Therefore the particle will move towards origin (its
original position) hence the equilibrium is stable.
(ii) When charge is shifted along y axis
After resolving components net force will be along y
axis so the particle will not return to its original
position so it is unstable equilibrium. Finally the
charge will move to infinity.
ELECTRIC LINES OF FORCE (ELOF)
The line of force in an electric field is an imaginary
l ine, the tangent to whi ch at any poi nt on i t
represents the direction of electric field at the given
point.
(a) Properties :
(i) Line of force originates out from a positive
charge and terminates on a negative charge. If
there is only one positive charge then lines start
from positive charge and terminate at . If there
is only one negative charge then lines start from
and terminates at negative charge.
(ii) The electric intensity at a point is the number
of lines of force streaming through per unit area
normal to the direction of the intensity at that point.
The intensity will be more where the density of
lines is more.
(iii) Number of lines originating (terminating) from
(on) is directly proportional to the magnitude of
the charge.
(iv) ELOF of resultant electric field can never intersect
with each other.
(v) El ectric li nes of force produced by stati c
charges do not form close loop.

Sol. There will be induced charge on two surfaces of
conducting plate, so ELOF will start from +Q charge
and terminate at conductor and then will again start
from other surface of conductor.

BATTERY
Battery is an arrangement that creates a constant
potential difference between its terminals. It is a
combination of a number of cells in series.
The impact of battery :
With the discovery of voltaic cell, it was soon realised
that if one constructs a number of cells and joins the
negative terminal of one with the positive terminal of
the other and so on, then the emf (which is the potential
difference between the electrodes in an open circuit)
of the combination of cells will be the sum of the emfs
of the individual cells. This observation led to a burst of
scientific activity in 1802. Humphrey Davy, an English
chemist, made a battery of 60 pairs of zinc and copper
plates. The large emf thus produced, was used to get
high current, which could melt iron and platinum wires.
By 1807, he had a battery of almost 300 plates with
which he was able to decompose chemical salts. This
led to the discovery of new elements.
7
PAGE # 7
By 1808, Davy had assembled 2,000 pairs of plates.
With thi s battery, he created electri c arcs and
succeeded in extracting the elements like barium,
calcium and magnesium from their compounds. Thus,
electricity took a front seat in exploring the nature of
matter.
ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE
The property of a substance by virtue of which it
opposes the flow of electric current through it is
termed as electrical resistance. Electrical resistance
depends on the size, geometry, temperature and
internal structure of the conductor.

EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE ON RESISTANCE
AND RESISTIVITY
The resistance of a conductor depends upon the
temperature. As the temperature increases, the
random motion of free electrons also increases. If
the number densi ty of charge carrier electrons
remains constant as in the case of a conductor, then
the i ncrease of random moti on i ncreases the
resistivity. The variation of resistance with temperature
is given by the following relation
( )

The resistivity or specific resistance varies with
temperature. This variation is due to change in

With the rise of temperature the specific resistance
or resistivity of pure metals increases and that of
semiconductors and insulators decrease.
The resistivity of alloys increases with the rise of
temperature but less than that of metals.
On applying pressure on pure metals, its resistivity
decreases but on applying tension, the resistivity
increases.
The resistance of alloys such as eureka, manganin
etc., increases in smaller amount with the rise in
temperature. Thei r temperature coeffi ci ent of
resistance is negligible. On account of their high
resistivity and negligible temperature coefficient of
resistance these alloys are used to make wires for
resistance boxes, potentiometer, meter bridge etc.,
The resi stance of semi conductors, i nsul ators,
el ectrol ytes etc., decreases wi th the ri se i n
temperature. Thei r temperature coeffi ci ents of
resistance are negative.
On increasing the temperature of semi conductors a
large number of electrons get free after breaking their
bonds. These electrons reach the conduction band
from valence band. Thus conductivity increases or
resistivity decreases with the increase of free electron
density.

WHEATSTONE BRIDGE
Wheatstone bridge is an arrangement of four resistors
in the shape of a quadrilateral which can be used to
measure unknown resi stance i n terms of the
remaining three resistances.
The arrangement of Wheatstone bridge is shown in
figure below. Out of four resistors, two resistances R
1
,
R

and R

, R

are connected in series and are joined in
parallel across two points a and c. A battery of emf E is
connected across junctions a and c and a galvanometer
(G) between junction b and d. The keys K
1
and K
2
are
used for the flow of current in the various branches of
bridge.
Principle of Wheatstone Bridge :
When key K
1
is closed, current i from the battery is
divided at junction a in two parts. A part i
1
goes through
R
1
and the rest i
2
goes through R
3
. When key K
2
is
closed, galvanometer shows a deflection.
9
PAGE # 9
The direction of deflection depends on the value of
potential difference between b and d. When the value
of potential at b and d is same, then no current will flow
through galvanometer. This condition is known as the
condi tion of bal anced bri dge or nul l defl ecti on
condition. This situation can be obtained by choosing
suitable values of the resistances. Thus, in null
deflection state, we have :

GALVANOMETER
Galvanometer is a simple device, used to detect the
current, to find direction of current and also to compare
the currents.
With the help of galvanometer we make two
important devises known as Ammeter and voltmeter
as discussed below.
(a) Ammeter :
Ammeter is an electrical instrument which measures
the strength of current in ampere in a circuit. Ammeter
is a pivoted coil gal vanometer which is always
connected in series in circuit so that total current (to be
measured) may pass through it. For an ammeter of
good quality, the resistance of its coil should be very
low so that it may measure the strength of current
accurately (without affecting the current passing
through the circuit). The resistance of an ideal ammeter
is zero (practically it should be minimum). So, to
minimize the effective resistance of an ammeter, a low
val ue resistance (shunt) as per requi rement i s
connected in parallel to the galvanometer to convert it
to ammeter of desired range.
In electric circuit, the positive terminal of an ammeter
is connected to positive plate and negative terminal is
connected to negative plate of battery.
Desi red val ue of shunt depends on the range
(measurable maximum current) of ammeter converted
from galvanometer.
If pivoted galvanometer of resistance G is to measure
current i (as an ammeter) then from figure.

Where i

is an amount of current required for full
deflection in galvanometer. By using a low value of
resistance S (shunt) in parallel to the galvanometer
(resistance G), the effecti ve resi stance of
converted ammeter R
A
=
S) (G
GS
+
becomes very low..
NOTE :
Shunt : If anyhow, the flowing current through
galvanometer becomes more than its capacity, the coil
has possibility of burning due to heat produced by
flowing current. Secondly, its pointer may break up due
to impact with stop pin as its proportional deflection
as per amount of flowing current.
In order to minimize these possibilities a low resistance
wire (or strip) is connected in parallel with galvanometer,
which is known as shunt.
(b) Voltmeter :
It is an electrical instrument which measures the
potential difference in volt between two points of
electric circuit. Its construction is similar as that of
ammeter. The only difference between ammeter and
vol tmeter i s that ammeter has i ts negl i gi bl e
(approximately zero) resistance so that it may measure
current of circuit passing through it more accurately
giving the deflection accordingly, while the voltmeter
passes negligible current through itself so that potential
difference developed due to maximum current passing
10
PAGE # 10
through circuit may be measured. Therefore, an
appropriate value of high resistance is required to be
connected in series of galvanometer to convert it into a
voltmeter of desired range.
Voltmeter is connected in parallel to the electric circuit.
If a galvanometer of resistance G is to be converted
into a voltmeter of range V, then required value of high
resistance R
H
will be
V = i
g
(R
H
+ G)
or R
H

\

Connecting this value of high resistance in the series
of galvanometer, it will be converted to a voltmeter of
range V. After connecting high resistance R
H
in series
of galvanometer of resistance G, the effective resistance
of voltmeter becomes R
V
= (R
H
+ G) very high (high in
comparison to G).
Ideal voltmeter has infinite resistance of its own. When
ideal voltmeter is connected parallel to a part of an
electric circuit, it passes zero amount of current through
itself from the circuit so that measurement of potential
difference across the points of connection may be
perfectly accurate.
KIRCHHOFF'S LAWS
(a) Kirchhoffs Current Law (Junction law) :
This law is based on law of conservation of charge.
It states that "The algebraic sum of the currents
meeting at a point of the circuit is zero" or total
current entering a junction is equal total current
leaving the junction.
in

out
.
It is also known as KCL (Kirchhoff's current law).
(b) Ki rchhof f s Vol tage Law (Loop law) :
The algebraic sum of all the potential differences
along a closed loop is zero. E IR + E EMF =0. The
closed loop can be traversed in any direction. While
traversing a loop if potential increases, put a positive
sign in expression and if potential decreases put
a negative sign.

MOLE CONCEPT
ATOMS
All the matter is made up of atoms. An atom is the
smallest particle of an element that can take part in a
chemical reaction. Atoms of most of the elements
are very reactive and do not exist in the free state (as
single atom).They exist in combination with the atoms
of the same element or another element.
Atoms are very, very small in size. The size of an atom
is indicated by its radius which is called "atomic
radius" (radi us of an atom). Atomi c radi us is
measured in "nanometres"(nm).
1 metre = 10
9
nanometre or 1nm = 10
9
m.
Atoms are so small that we cannot see them under
the most powerful optical microscope.
Note :
Hydrogen atom is the smallest atom of all , having an
atomic radius 0.037nm.
(a) Symbols of Elements :
A symbol is a short hand notation of an element which
can be represented by a sketch or letter etc.
Dalton was the first to use symbols to represent
elements in a short way but Dalton's symbols for
element were difficult to draw and inconvenient to
use, so Dalton's symbols are only of historical
importance. They are not used at all.
It was J.J. Berzelius who proposed the modern
system of representing en element.
The symbol of an element is the "first letter" or the
"first letter and another letter" of the English name or
the Latin name of the element.
e.g. The symbol of Hydrogen is H.
The symbol of Oxygen is O.
There are some elements whose names begin with
the same letter. For example, the names of elements
Carbon, Calcium, Chlorine and Copper all begin with
the letter C. In such cases, one of the elements is
given a "one letter "symbol but all other elements are
given a "first letter and another letter" symbol of the
English or Latin name of the element. This is to be
noted that "another letter" may or may not be the
"second letter" of the name. Thus,
The symbol of Carbon is C.
The symbol of Calcium is Ca.
The symbol of Chlorine is Cl.
The symbol of Copper is Cu (from its Latin name
Cuprum)
It should be noted that in a "two letter" symbol, the
first letter is the "capital letter" but the second letter is
the 'small letter'.

(b) Significance of The Symbol of an
Element :
(i) Symbol represents name of the element.
(ii) Symbol represents one atom of the element.
(iii) Symbol also represents one mole of the element.
That is, symbol also represent 6.023 10
23
atoms of
the element.
(iv) Symbol represent a definite mass of the element
i.e. atomic mass of the element.
Example :
(i) Symbol H represents hydrogen element.

IONS
An ion is a positively or negatively charged atom or
group of atoms.
Every atom contains equal number of electrons
(negatively charged) and protons (positively charged).
Both charges balance each other, hence atom is
electrically neutral.
(a) Cation :
If an atom has less electrons than a neutral atom,
then it gets positively charged and a positively
charged ion is known as cation.
e.g. Sodium ion (Na
+
), Magnesium ion (Mg
2+
) etc.
A cation bears that much units of positive charge as
there are the number of electrons lost by the neutral
atom to form that cation.
e.g. An aluminium atom loses 3 electrons to form
aluminium ion, so aluminium ion bears 3 units of
positive charge and it is represented as Al
3+
.
(b) Anion :
If an atom has more number of electrons than that of
neutral atom, then it gets negatively charged and a
negatively charged ion is known as anion.
e.g. Chloride ion (Cl), oxide ion (O
2
) etc.
An anion bears that much units of negative charge as
there are the number of electrons gained by the
neutral atom to form that anion.
e.g. A nitrogen atom gains 3 electrons to form nitride
ion, so nitride ion bears 3 units of negative charge
and it is represented as N
3
.
Note :
Size of a cation is always smaller and anion is always
greater than that of the corresponding neutral atom.
(c) Monoatomic ions and polyatomic ions :
(i) Monoatomic ions : Those ions which are formed
from single atoms are called monoatomic ions or
simple ions.
e.g. Na
+
, Mg
2+
etc.
(ii) Polyatomic ions : Those ions which are formed
from group of atoms joined together are called
polyatomic ions or compound ions.
e.g. Ammonium ion (NH
4
+
) , hydroxide ion (OH
) etc.
which are formed by the joining of two types of atoms,
nitrogen and hydrogen in the first case and oxygen and
hydrogen in the second.
(d) Valency of ions :
The valency of an ion is same as the charge present
on the ion.
If an ion has 1 unit of positive charge, its valency is 1
and it is known as a monovalent cation. If an ion has
2 units of negative charge, its valency is 2 and it is
known as a divalent anion.

LAWS OF CHEMICAL COMBINATION
The l aws of chemi cal combi nati on are the
experi mental l aws whi ch l ed to the i dea of
atoms being the smallest unit of matter. The laws of
chemical combination played a significant role in the
development of Daltons atomic theory of matter.
There are two important laws of chemical combination.
These are:
(i) Law of conservation of mass
(ii) Law of constant proportions
(a) Law of Conservation of Mass or Matter :
This law was given by Lavoisier in 1774 . According to
the law of conservation of mass, matter can neither
be created nor be destroyed in a chemical reaction.
Or
The law of conservation of mass means that in a
chemical reaction, the total mass of products is equal
to the total mass of the reactants. There is no change
in mass during a chemical reaction.
Suppose we carry out a chemical reaction between A
and B and if the products formed are C and D then,
A + B C + D
Suppose 'a' g of A and 'b' g of B react to produce 'c' g of
C and 'd' g of D. Then, according to the law of
conservation of mass, we have,
a + b = c + d
Example :
When Calcium Carbonate (CaCO
3
) is heated, a
chemical reaction takes place to form Calcium Oxide
(CaO) and Carbon dioxide (CO
2
). It has been found
by experiments that if 100 grams of calcium carbonate
is decomposed completely, then 56 grams of Calcium
Oxide and 44 grams of Carbon dioxide are formed.
Since the total mass of products (100g ) is equal to
the total mass of the reactants (100g), there is no
change in the mass during this chemical reaction.
The mass remains same or conserved.
(b) Law of Constant Proportions / Law of
Definite Proportions :
Proust, in 1779, analysed the chemical composition
(types of elements present and percentage of
elements present ) of a large number of compounds
and came to the conclusion that the proportion of
each element in a compound is constant (or fixed).
According to the law of constant proportions: A
chemical compound always consists of the same
elements combined together in the same proportion
by mass.
Note :
The chemical composition of a pure substance is
not dependent on the source from which it is obtained.
Example :
Water is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen. It can
be obtained from various sources (like river, sea, well
etc.) or even synthesized in the laboratory. From
whatever source we may get it, 9 parts by weight of
water is always found to contain 1 part by weight of
hydrogen and 8 parts by weight of oxygen. Thus, in
water, this proportion of hydrogen and oxygen always
remains constant.
Note :
The converse of Law of definite proportions that when
same elements combine in the same proportion, the
same compound will be formed, is not always true.
(c) Law of Multiple Proportions :
According to it, when one element combines with the
other element to form two or more different compounds,
the mass of one element, which combines with a
constant mass of the other, bears a simple ratio to
one another.
Simple ratio means the ratio between small natural
numbers, such as 1 : 1, 1 : 2, 1 : 3
e.g.
Carbon and oxygen when combine, can form two
oxides that are CO (carbon monoxide), CO
2
(carbon
dioxide).
In CO,12 g carbon combined with 16 g of oxygen.
In CO
2
,12 g carbon combined with 32 g of oxygen.
Thus, we can see the mass of oxygen which combine
with a constant mass of carbon (12 g) bear simple
ratio of 16 : 32 or 1 : 2
Note :
The law of multiple proportion was given by Dalton in
1808.
Sample Problem :
1. Carbon is found to form two oxides, which contain
42.8% and 27.27% of carbon respectively. Show that
these figures illustrate the law of multiple proportions.
Sol. % of carbon in first oxide = 42.8
% of oxygen in first oxide = 100  42.8 = 57.2
% of carbon in second oxide = 27.27
% of oxygen in second oxide = 100  27.27 = 72.73
For the first oxide 
Mass of oxygen in grams that combines with 42.8 g
of carbon = 57.2
Mass of oxygen that combines with 1 g of carbon =
1.34
42.8
57.2
=
g
For the second oxide 
Mass of oxygen in grams that combines with 27.27 g
of carbon = 72.73
Mass of oxygen that combines with 1 g of carbon =
2.68
27.27
72.73
= g
Ratio between the masses of oxygen that combine
with a fixed mass (1 g) of carbon in the two oxides
= 1.34 : 2.68 or 1 : 2 which is a simple ratio. Hence,
this illustrates the law of multiple proportion.
PAGE # 21
(d) Law of Reciprocal Proportions :
According to this law the ratio of the weights of two
element A and B which combine separately with a
fixed weight of the third element C is either the same
or some simple multiple of the ratio of the weights in
which A and B combine directly with each other.
e.g.
The elements C and O combine separately with the
third element H to form CH
4
and H
2
O and they combine
directly with each other to form CO
2
.
H 2 4
CH
4
H O
2
C O

12
12
CO
2

In CH
4
, 12 parts by weight of carbon combine with 4
parts by weight of hydrogen. In H
2
O, 2 parts by weight
of hydrogen combine with 16 parts by weight of
oxygen. Thus the weight of C and O which combine
with fixed weight of hydrogen (say 4 parts by weight)
are 12 and 32 i.e. they are in the ratio 12 : 32 or 3 : 8.
Now in CO
2
, 12 parts by weight of carbon combine
directly with 32 parts by weight of oxygen i.e. they
combine directly in the ratio 12 : 32 or 3 : 8 which is
the same as the first ratio.
Note :
The law of reciprocal proportion was put forward by
Ritcher in 1794.
Sample Problem :
2. Ammonia contains 82.35% of nitrogen and 17.65%
of hydrogen. Water contains 88.90% of oxygen and
11.10% of hydrogen. Nitrogen trioxide contains
63.15% of oxygen and 36.85% of nitrogen. Show that
these data illustrate the law of reciprocal proportions.
Sol
In NH
3
, 17.65 g of H combine with N = 82.35 g
1g of H combine with N =
17.65
82.35
g = 4.67 g
In H
2
O, 11.10 g of H combine with O = 88.90 g
1 g H combine with O =
11.10
88.90
g = 8.01 g
Ratio of the weights of N and O which combine
with fixed weight (=1g) of H
= 4.67 : 8.01 = 1 : 1.72
In N
2
O
3
, ratio of weights of N and O which combine
with each other = 36.85 : 63.15 = 1 : 1.71
Thus the two ratio are the same. Hence it illustrates
the law of reciprocal proportions.
(e) Gay Lussacs Law of Gaseous Volumes :
Gay Lussac found that there exi sts a defi ni te
relationship among the volumes of the gaseous
reactants and their products. In 1808, he put forward
a generalization known as the Gay Lussacs Law of
combining volumes. This may be stated as follows :
When gases react together, they always do so in
volumes which bear a simple ratio to one another
and to the volumes of the product, if these are also
gases, provided all measurements of volumes are
done under similar conditions of temperature and
pressure.
e.g.
Combination between hydrogen and chlorine to form
hydrogen chloride gas. One volume of hydrogen and
one volume of chlorine always combine to form two
volumes of hydrochloric acid gas.
H
2
(g) + Cl
2
(g) 2HCl (g)
1vol. 1 vol. 2 vol.
The ratio between the volume of the reactants and
the product in this reaction is simple, i.e., 1 : 1 : 2.
Hence it illustrates the Law of combining volumes.
(f) Avogadros Hypothesis :
This states that equal volumes of all gases under
similar conditions of temperature and pressure
contain equal number of molecules.
This hypothesis has been found to explain elegantly
al l the gaseous reacti ons and is now widel y
recognized as a law or a principle known as Avogadros
Law or Avogadros principle.
The reaction between hydrogen and chlorine can be
explained on the basis of Avogadros Law as follows :
Hydrogen + Chlorine Hydrogen chloride gas
1 vol. (By experiment)
1 vol. 2 vol.
n molecules. n molecules.
2n molecules.(By Avogadro's Law)
2
1
molecules. molecules.
1 molecules. (By dividing throughout by 2n)
1 Atom 1 Atom
1 Molecule (Applying Avogadro's hypothesis)
2
1
It implies that one molecule of hydrogen chloride gas
is made up of 1 atom of hydrogen and 1 atom of
chlorine.
(i) Applications of Avogadros hypothesis :
(A) In the calculation of atomicity of elementary
gases.
e.g.
2 volumes of hydrogen combine with 1 volume of
oxygen to form two volumes of water vapours.
Hydrogen + Oxygen Water vapours
2 vol. 1 vol. 2 vol.
PAGE # 22
Applying Avogadros hypothesis
Hydrogen + Oxygen Water vapours
2 n molecules n molecules 2 n molecules
or 1 molecule
2
1
molecule 1 molecule
Thus1 molecule of water contains
2
1
molecule of
oxygen. But 1 molecule of water contains 1 atom of
oxygen. Hence.
2
1
molecule of oxygen = 1 atom of
oxygen or 1 molecules of oxygen = 2 atoms of oxygen
i.e. atomicity of oxygen = 2.
(B) To find the relationship between molecular mass
and vapour density of a gas.
Vapour density (V.D.) =

(since molecular mass of hydrogen is 2)
Hence, Molecular mass = 2 Vapour density
ATOMIC MASS UNIT
The atomic mass unit (amu) is equal to onetwelfth
(1/12) of the mass of an atom of carbon12.The mass
of an atom of carbon12 isotope was given the atomic
mass of 12 units, i.e. 12 amu or 12 u.
The atomic masses of all other elements are now
expressed in atomic mass units.
RELATIVE ATOMIC MASS
The atomic mass of an element is a relative quantity
and it is the mass of one atom of the element relative
to one twelfth (1/12) of the mass of one carbon12
atom. Thus, Relative atomic mass
=

RELATIVE MOLECULAR MASS
The relative molecular mass of a substance is the
mass of a molecule of the substance as compared
to onetwelfth of the mass of one carbon 12 atom
i.e.,
Relative molecular mass

The molecular mass of a molecule, thus, represents
the number of times it is heavier than 1/12 of the

in a molecule.

(Atomic masses : H = 1u, O = 16u).
Sol. The molecular formula of water is H
2

Molecular mass of water = ( 2 atomic mass of H)
+ (1 atomic mass of O)
= 2 1 + 1 16 = 18
i.e., molecular mass of water = 18 amu.

(i) The percentage composition of each element is
divided by its atomic mass. It gives atomic ratio of the
elements present in the compound.
(ii) The atomic ratio of each element is divided by the
minimum value of atomic ratio as to get the simplest
ratio of the atoms of el ements present i n the
compound.
(iii) If the simplest ratio is fractional, then values of
simplest ratio of each element is multiplied by
smallest integer to get the simplest whole number
for each of the element.
(iv) To get the empirical formula, symbols of various
elements present are written side by side with their
respective whole number ratio as a subscript to the
lower right hand corner of the symbol.
(v) The molecular formula of a substance may be
determined from the empirical formula if the molecular
mass of the substance is known. The molecular
formula is always a simple multiple of empirical
formula and the value of simple multiple (n) is
obtained by dividing molecular mass with empirical
formula mass.

CONCENTRATION OF SOLUTIONS
(a) Strength in g/L :
The strength of a solution is defined as the amount of
the solute in grams present in one litre (or dm

a solution is defined as the number of gram formula
masses of the solute dissolved per litre of the
solution. It is represented by the symbol F. The term
formula mass is used in place of molecular mass
because ionic compounds exist as ions and not as
molecules. Formula mass is the sum of the atomic

VOLUMETRIC CALCULATIONS
The quantitative analysis in chemistry is primarily
carried out by two methods, viz, volumetric analysis
and gravimetric analysis.In the first method the mass
of a chemical species is measured by measurement
of volume, whereas in the second method it is deter
mined by taking the weight.
The strength of a solution in volumetric analysis is
generally expressed in terms of normality, i.e., num
ber of equivalents per litre but since the volume in the

(a) Introduction :
Volumetric analysis is a method of quantitative
analysis. It involves the measurement of the volume
of a known solution required to bring about the
completion of the reaction with a measured volume
of the unknown solution whose concentration or
strength is to be determined. By knowing the volume
of the known solution, the concentration of the solution
under investigation can be calculated. Volumetric
analysis is also termed as titrimetric analysis.
(b) Important terms used in volumetric
analysis :
(i) Titration : The process of addition of the known
solution from the burette to the measured volume of
solution of the substance to be estimated until the
reaction between the two is just complete, is termed
as titration. Thus, a titration involves two solutions:
(a) Unknown solution and (b) Known solution or stan
dard solution.
(ii) Titrant : The reagent or substance whose solu
tion is employed to estimate the concentration of un
known solution is termed titrant. There are two types
of reagents or titrants:
(A) Primary titrants : These reagents can be
accurately weighed and their solutions are not to be
standardised before use. Oxalic acid, potassium
dichromate, silver nitrate, copper sulphate, ferrous
ammonium sulphate, sodium thiosulphates etc., are
the examples of primary titrants.
(B) Secondary titrants : These reagents cannot
accurately weighed and their solutions are to be
standardi sed before use. Sodi um hydroxi de,
potassium hydroxide, hydrochloric acid, sulphuric
acid, iodine, potassium permanganate etc. are the
examples of secondary titrants.
(iii) Standard solution : The solution of exactly known
concentration of the titrant is called the standard
solution.
(iv) Titrate : The solution consisting the substance to
be estimated is termed unknown solution. The
substance is termed titrate.
(v) Equivalence point : The point at which the reagent
(titrant) and the substance (titrate) under investigation
are chemically equivalent is termed equivalence point
or end point.
(vi) Indicator : It is the auxiliary substance used for
physical (visual) detection of the completion of titration
or detection of end point is termed as indicator.
Indicators show change in colour or turbidity at the
stage of completion of titration.
(c) Concentraion representation of solution
(A) Strength of solution : Grams of solute dissolved
per litre of solution is called strength of solution'
(B) Parts Per Million (ppm) : Grams of solute
di ssol ved per 10
6
grams of sol vent i s cal l ed
concentration of solution in the unit of Parts Per Million
(ppm). This unit is used to represent hardness of
water and concentration of very dilute solutions.
(C) Percentage by mass : Grams of solute dissolved
per 100 grams of solution is called percentage by
mass.
(D) Percentage by volume : Millilitres of solute per
100 mL of solution is called percentage by volume.
For example, if 25 mL ethyl alcohol is diluted with
water to make 100 mL solution then the solution thus
obtained is 25% ethyl alcohol by volume.
(E) Mass by volume percentage :Grams of solute
present per 100 mL of solution is called percentage
mass by volume.
For example, let 25 g glucose is dissolved in water to
make 100 mL solution then the solution is 25% mass
by volume glucose.

volumetric analysis

salt called neutralisation.

(B) Oxidationreduction reactions
The reactions involving simultaneous loss and gain
of electrons among the reacting species are called
oxidation reduction or redox reactions, e.g., let us
consider oxidation of ferrous sulphate (Fe
2+

potassium permanganate (MnO

medium.

Methyl orange : It is a very weak base and can be
represented as MeOH. It is ionised in solution to give
Me

MeOH Me

Orange Red
Applying law of mass action,
K =
] MeOH [
] OH ][ Me [
+
In presence of an acid, OH
ions in
creases in the solution and the equilibrium shifts to
left hand side, i.e., the ionisation of MeOH is practi
cally negligible. Thus, the solution acquires the colour
of unionised methyl orange molecules, i.e. orange.
This theory also explains the reason why phenol
phthalein is not a suitable indicator for titrating a weak
base against strong acid. The OH
ions furnished by
a weak base are not sufficient to shift the equilibrium
towards right hand side considerably, i.e., pH is not
reached to 8.3. Thus, the solution does not attain
pink colour. Similarly, it can be explained why methyl
orange is not a suitable indicator for the titration of
weak acid with strong base.
SOLUBILITY
The solubility of a solute in a solution is always
expressed with respect to the saturated solution.
(a) Definition :
The maximum amount of the solute which can be
dissolved in 100g (0.1kg) of the solvent to form a
saturated solution at a given temperature.
Suppose w gram of a solute is dissolved in W gram
of a solvent to make a saturated solution at a fixed
temperature and pressure. The solubility of the solute
will be given by 
W
w
100 =
solvent the of Mass
solute the of Mass
100
For example, the solubility of potassium chloride in
water at 20C and 1 atm. is 34.7 g per 100g of water.
This means that under normal conditions 100 g of
water at 20C and 1 atm. cannot dissolve more than
34.7g of KCl.
(b) Effect of Temperature and Pressure on
Solubility of a Solids :
The solubility of a substance in liquids generally
increases with rise in temperature but hardly changes
with the change in pressure. The effect of temperature
depends upon the heat energy changes which
accompany the process.
Note :
If heat energy is needed or absorbed in the process,
it is of endothermic nature. If heat energy is evolved
or released in the process, it is of exothermic nature.
(i) Effect of temperature on endothermic dissolution
process : Most of the salts like sodium chloride,
potassium chloride, sodium nitrate, ammonium
chloride etc. dissolve in water with the absorption of
heat. In all these salts the solubility increases with
rise in temperature. This means that sodium chloride
becomes more soluble in water upon heating.
(ii) Effect of temperature on exothermic dissolution
process : Few salts like lithium carbonate, sodium
carbonate monohydrate, ceri um sul phate etc.
dissolve in water with the evolution of heat. This
means that the process is of exothermic nature. In
these salts the solubility in water decreases with rise
in temperature.
PAGE # 36
Note :
1. While expressing the solubility, the solution must
be saturated but for expressing concentration (mass
percent or volume percent), the solution need not to
be saturated in nature.
2. While expressing solubility, mass of solvent is
considered but for expressing concentration the
mass or volume of the solution may be taken into
consideration.
(c) Ef fect of Temperature on the Solubility
of a Gas
(i) The solubility of a gas in a liquid decreases with
the rise in temperature.
(ii) The solubility of gases in liquids increases on
increasing the pressure and decreases on decreas
ing the pressure.

Cube : If any number is multiplied by itself three times
then the result is called the cube of that number.
Perfect cube : A natural number is said to be a perfect
cube if it is the cube of any other natural number.
Ex.4 What is the smallest number by which 675 must be
multiplied so that the product is a perfect cube.
Sol. Resolving 675 into prime factor, we get
1
5 5
25 5
75 3
225 3
675 3
675 = (3 3 3) 5 5
Grouping the factor in triplets of equal factors, we get
675 = (3 3 3) 5 5
We find that 3 occurs as a prime factor of 675 thrice but
5 occurs as a prime factor only twice. Thus, if we multiply
675 by 5, 5 will also occur as a prime factor thrice and
the product will be 3 3 3 5 5 5, which is a
perfect cube.
Hence, we must multiply 675 by 5 so that the product
becomes a perfect cube.

18522 = 2 3 3 3 7 7 7
Grouping the factors in triplets of equal factors, we get
18522 = 2 (3 3 3) (7 7 7)
Clearly, if we divide 18522 by 2, the quotient would be
3 3 3 7 7 7 = 3

which is a perfect cube.
Therefore, we must divide 18522 by 2 so that the

Conjugate Surds :
R.F. of b a and b a + type surds are called
conjugate surds .
Ex.11 (i) 3 2 is conjugate of 3 2 + .
(ii) 1 5 + is conjugate of 1 5 .
Sometimes conjugate surd and reciprocals are same.
Ex.12 (i) 3 2 + , its conjugate is 3 2 , its reciprocal is
3 2 & vice versa.
(ii) 6 2 5 , its conjugate is 6 2 5 + , its reciprocal is
6 2 5 + & vice versa.
Factors : a is a factor of b if there exists a relation
such that a n = b, where n is any natural number.
1 is a factor of all numbers as 1 b = b.
Factor of a number cannot be greater than the number
(infact the largest factor will be the number itself). Thus
factors of any number will lie between 1 and the number
itself (both inclusive) and they are limited.
Multiples : a is a multiple of b if there exists a relation
of the type b n = a. Thus the multiples of 6 are
6 1 = 6, 6 2 = 12, 6 3 = 18, 6 4 = 24, and so on.
The smallest multiple will be the number itself and the
number of multiples would be infinite.
NOTE :
To understand what multiples are, lets just take an
example of multiples of 3. The multiples are 3, 6, 9,
12,.... so on. We find that every successive multiples
appears as the third number after the previous.
So if one wishes to find the number of multiples of 6
less than 255, we could arrive at the number through
6
255
= 42 (and the remainder 3). The remainder is of
no consequence to us. So in all there are 42 multiples.
If one wishes to find the multiples of 36, find
36
255
= 7
(and the remainder is 3). Hence, there are 7 multiples
of 36.
Factorisation : It is the process of splitting any number
into form where it is expressed only in terms of the
most basic prime factors.
For example, 36 = 2
2
3
2
. 36 is expressed in the
factorised form in terms of its basic prime factors.
Number of factors : For any composite number C,
which can be expressed as C = a
p
b
q
c
r
....., where
a, b, c ..... are all prime factors and p, q, r are positive
integers, then the number of factors is equal to
(p + 1) (q + 1) (r + 1).... e.g. 36 = 2
2
3
2
. So the
factors of 36 = (2 +1) (2 + 1) = 3 3 = 9.
Ex.13 If N = 12

factors of N.

)
3

.
Hence, the total number of factors of N i s
(6 + 1) (7 + 1) (2 + 1) = 7 8 3 = 168.
Some of these are odd multiples and some are even.
The odd multiples are formed only with the combination
of 3s and 5s.
So, the total number of odd factors is (7 + 1)(2 + 1) = 24.
Therefore, the number of even factors
= 168 24 = 144.
Ex.14 A number N when factori sed can be wri tten

. Find the number of perfect squares
which are factors of N (The three prime numbers
a, b, c > 2).
Sol. In order that the perfect square divides N, the powers
of a can be 0, 2 or 4, i.e. 3.
Powers of b can be 0, 2, i.e. 2. Power of c can be 0, 2,
4 or 6, i.e. 4.
Hence, a combination of these powers given 3 2 4
i.e. 24 numbers.
So, there are 24 perfect squares that divides N.
Ex.15 Directions : (i to iv) Answer the questions based on
the given information.
There are one thousand lockers and one thousand
students in a school. The principal asks the first student
to go to each locker and open it. Then he asks the
second student go to every second locker and close it.
The third student goes to every third locker, and if it is
closed, he opens it, and it is open, he closes it. The
fourth student does it to every fourth locker and so on.
The process is completed with all the thousand
students.
(i) How many lockers are closed at the end of the
process ?
(ii) How many students can go to only one locker ?
(iii) How many lockers are open after 970 students
have done their job ?
(iv) How many student go to locker no. 840 ?
46
PAGE # 46
Sol. (i to iv) : Whether the locker is open or not depends on
the number of times it is accessed. If it is accessed
odd number of times, then it is open while if it is
accessed even number of times then it is closed.
How many times a locker will be accessed depends
on the locker no. If it contains odd number of factors,,
then it will be open and if it contains even number of
factors. Then it will be closed. We know that a perfect
square contains odd number of factors while a non
perfect square contains even number of factors. Thus
the lockers with perfect square number will be open
and the number of these perfect squares from 1 to
1000 determines the no. of open lockers.
(i) No. of closed lockers = No. of nonperfect square
numbers from 1 to 1000 = 1000 31 = 969.
(ii) Upto 500 students they can go to two or more than
two lockers, while the rest 500 can go to only one locker.
(iii) The 31 perfect squares ( the last being 31
2
= 961)
will be open while the lockers from 971 to 1000 is yet
to be accessed last time so they all are open. The total
being = 31 + 30 = 61
(iv) The no. of students that have gone to locker no.
840 is same as the no. of factors of 840.
840 = 2
3
3 5 7.
So, the no. of factors = (3 + 1) (1 + 1) (1 + 1) (1 + 1) = 32.
LCM (least Common Multiple) : The LCM of given
numbers, as the name suggests is the smallest
positive number which is a multiple of each of the given
numbers.
HCF (Highest Common factor) : The HCF of given
numbers, as the name suggests is the largest factor
of the given set of numbers.
Consider the numbers 12, 20 and 30. The factors and
the multiples are :
Factors
Given
numbers
Multiples
1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 12 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120....
1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20 20 20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120.....
1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30 30 30, 60, 90, 120....
The common factors are 1 and 2 and the common
multiples are 60, 120...
Thus the highest common factor is 2 and the least
common multiple is 60. Meaning of HCF is that the
HCF is the largest number that divides all the given
numbers.
Also since a number divides its multiple, the meaning
of LCM is that it is smallest number which can be
divided by the given numbers.
HCF will be lesser than or equal to the least of the
numbers and LCM will be greater than or equal to the
greatest of the numbers.
Ex.16 Find a number greater then 3 which when divided by
4, 5, and 6 always leaves the same remainder 3.
Sol. The smallest number which, when divided by 4, 5 and
6, l eaves the remai nder 3 i n each case i s
LCM (4, 5 and 6) + 3 = 60 + 3 = 63.
Ex.17 In a school 437 boys and 342 girls have been divided
into classes, so that each class has the same number
of students and no class has boys and girls mixed.
What is the least number of classes needed?
Sol. We should have the maximum number of students in
a class. So we have to find HCF (437, 342) = 19.
HCF is also the factor of difference of the number.
Number of classes =
19
437
+
19
342
= 23 + 18
= 41 classes.
For any two numbers x and y :
x y = HCF (x, y) LCM (x, y).
HCF and LCM of fractions :
LCM of fractions =
ators min deno of HCF
numerators of LCM
HCF of fractions =
ators min deno of LCM
numerators of HCF
Make sure the fractions are in the most reducible form.
Ex.18 Find the least number which when divided by 6, 7, 8,
9 and 10 leaves remainder 1.
Sol. As the remainder is same
Required number = LCM of divisors + Remainder
= LCM (6, 7, 8, 9, 10) +1
= 2520 + 1 = 2521.
Ex.19 Six bells start tolling together and they toll at intervals
of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 sec. respectively, find.
(i) after how much time will all six of them toll together ?
(ii) how many times will they toll together in 30 min ?
Sol. The time after which all six bells will toll together must
be multiple of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12.
Therefore, required time = LCM of time intervals.
= LCM (2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12) = 120 sec.
Therefore after 120 s all six bells will toll together.
After each 120 s, i.e. 2 min, all bell are tolling together.
Therefore in 30 min they will toll together

.

\

Ex.20 LCM of two distinct natural numbers is 211. What is
their HCF ?
Sol. 211 is a prime number. So there is only one pair of

25 Last 2 digits of the number should be 00, 25, 50 or 75.
Rule for 7 : Double the last digit of given number and
subtract from remaining number the result should be
zero or divisible by 7.
Ex.22 Check whether 413 is divisible by 7 or not.
Sol. Last digit = 3, remaining number = 41, 41 (3 x 2) = 35
(divisible by 7). i.e. 413 is divisible by 7.
This rule can also be used for number having more
than 3 digits.
Ex.23 Check whether 6545 is divisible by 7 or not.
Sol. Last digit = 5, remaining number 654, 654 (5 x 2)
= 644; 64 (4 x 2) = 56 divisible by 7. i.e. 6545 is
divisible by 7.
Rule for 13 : Four times the last digit and add to
remaining number the result should be divisible by
13.
Ex.24 Check whether 234 is divisible by 13 or not .
Sol. 234, (4 x 4) + 23 = 39 (divisible by 13), i.e. 234 is divisible
by 13.
Rule for 17 : Five times the last digit of the number and
subtract from previous number the result obtained
should be either 0 or divisible by 17.
Ex.25 Check whether 357 is divisible by 17 or not.
Sol. 357, (7 x 5) 35 = 0, i.e. 357 is divisible by 17.
Rule for 19 : Double the last digit of given number and
add to remaining number The result obtained should
be divisible by 19.
Ex.26 Check whether 589 is divisible by 19 or not.
Sol. 589, (9 x 2) + 58 = 76 (divisible by 19), i.e. the number
is divisible by 19.
Ex27. Find the smallest number of six digits which is exactly
divisible by 111.
Sol. Smallest number of 6 digits is which is 100000.
On dividing 100000 by 111, we get 100 as remainder.
Number to be added = (111  100) = 11.
Hence, required number = 100011.
Ex.28 Find the largest four digit number which when
reduced by 54, is perfectly divisible by all even natural
numbers less than 20.
Sol. Even natural numbers less than 20 are 2, 4, 6, 8, 12,
14, 16, 18.
Their LCM = 2 LCM of first 9 natural numbers
= 2 2520 = 5040
This happens to be the largest fourdigit number
divisible by all even natural numbers less than 20. 54
was subtracted from our required number to get this
number.
Hence, (required number 54) = 5040
required number = 5094.
Ex.29 Ajay multiplied 484 by a certain number to get the
result 3823a. Find the value of a.
Sol. 3823a is divisible by 484, and 484 is a factor of 3823a.
4 is a factor of 484 and 11 is also a factor of 484.
Hence, 3823a is divisible by both 4 and 11.
To be divisible by 4, the last two digits have to be
divisible by 4.
a can take two values 2 and 6.
38232 is not divisible by 11, but 38236 is divisible by
11.
Hence, 6 is the correct choice.
Ex.30 Which digits should come in place of  and $ if the
number 62684$ is divisible by both 8 and 5 ?
Sol. Since the given number is divisible by 5, so 0 or 5 must
come in place of $. But, a number ending with 5 in
never divisible by 8. So, 0 will replace $.
Now, the number formed by the last three digits is 40,
which becomes divisible by 8, if  is replaced by 4 or 8.
Hence, digits in place of  and $ are 4 or 8 and 0
respectively.

Ex.32 How many numbers between 200 and 600 are
divisible by 4, 5, and 6 ?
Sol. Every such number must be divisible by L.C.M. of 4, 5,
6, i.e.60.
Such numbers are 240, 300, 360, 420, 480, 540
Clearly, there are 6 such numbers.
The method of finding the remainder without actually
performing the process of division is termed as
remainder theorem.
Remainder should always be positive. For example if
we divide 22 by 7, generally we get 3 as quotient and
1 as remainder. But this is wrong because remainder
is never be negative hence the quotient should be 4
and remainder is +6. We can also get remainder 6 by
adding 1 to divisor 7 ( 71 = 6).

Ex.34 A number when divided by 259 leaves a remainder
139. What will be the remainder when the same
number is divided by 37 ?
Sol. Let the number be P.
So, P 139 is divisible by 259.
Let Q be the quotient then,
259
139 P

139 Q 259 +
259 is divisible by 37,
When 139 divided by 37, leaves a remainder of 28.
Ex.35 A number being successively divided by 3, 5 and 8

y = (5 z + 3) = (5 10 + 53) = 53
x = (4 y + 2) = (4 53 + 2) = 214
Hence, the required number is 214.
Ex.37 In dividing a number by 585, a student employed the
method of short division. He divided the number
successively by 5, 9 and 13 (factors of 585) and got the

can be written (81)
25
. There are 26 terms in all and
first 25 terms are divisible by 8, hence also by 4. The
last term is (1)
25
. Hence, (8 1)

So the remainder is zero.
We are having 10 digits in our number systems and
some of them shows special characterstics like they,
repeat their unit digit after a cycle, for example 1 repeat
its unit digit after every consecutive power. So, its
cyclicity is 1 on the other hand digit 2 repeat its unit
digit after every four power, hence the cyclicity of 2 is
four. The cyclicity of digits are as follows :
Digit Cyclicity
0, 1, 5 and 6 1
4 and 9 2
2, 3, 7 and 8 4
So, if we want to find the last digit of 2
45
, divide 45 by 4.
The remainder is 1 so the last digit of 2
45
would be
same as the last digit of 2

Let's start with some examples.
Ex.58What are the last two digits of 31

.
Note that all the terms excluding last two terms will
end in two or more zeroes. The last two terms are
786 30 1
785
and 1
786
. Now, the second last term
will end with one zero and the tens digit of the second
last term will be the product of 786 and 3 i.e. 8.
Therefore, the last two digits of the second last term
will be 80. The last digit of the last term is 1. So the
last two digits of 31
786
are 81.
Ex.59Find the last two digits of 41
2789
.
Sol. According to the previous example we can calculate
the answer 61 (4 9 = 36. Therefore, 6 will be the
tens digit and one will be the units digit).
Ex.60 Find the last two digits of 71

Sol. Last two digits will be 91 (7 7 gives 9 and 1 as
units digit)
Ex.61 Find the last two digits of 51
456
61
567
.
Sol. The last two digits of 51
456
will be 01 and the last
two digits of 61
567
will be 21. Therefore, the last two
digits of 51
456
61
567
will be the last two digits of
01 21 = 21.
(ii) Last two digits of numbers ending in 3, 7 or 9 :
Ex.62 Find the last two digits of 19
266
.
Sol. 19
266
= (19
2
)
133
. Now, 19
2
ends in 61 (19
2
= 361)
therefore, we need to find the last two digits of (61)
133
.
Once the number is ending in 1 we can straight away
get the last two digits with the help of the previous
method. The last two digits are 81 (6 3 = 18, so
the tenth digit will be 8 and last digit will be 1).
Ex.63 Find the last two digits of 33
288
.
Sol. 33

ends in 21 (33

2
33
2
= 1089 1089 = xxxxx21) therefore, we need to find
the last two digits of 21
72
. By the previous method,
the last two digits of 21
72
= 41 (tens digit = 2 2 = 4,
unit digit = 1)

69 = 81 69 = 89.
(iii) Last two digits of numbers ending in 2, 4, 6 or 8 :
There is only one even twodigit number which
always ends in itself (last two digits)  76 i.e. 76
raised to any power gives the last two digits as 76.
Therefore, our purpose is to get 76 as last two digits
for even numbers. We know that 24
2
ends in 76 and
2
10
ends in 24. Also, 24 raised to an even power
always ends with 76 and 24 raised to an odd power
always ends with 24. Therefore, 24
34
will end in 76
and 24
53
will end in 24.

= 76 8 = 08.
NOTE :
Here if you need to multiply 76 with 2
n
, then you can
straightaway write the last two digits of 2
n
because
when 76 is multiplied with 2
n
the last two digits
remai n the same as the l ast two di gi ts of 2
n
.
Therefore, the last two digits of 76 2
7
will be the
last two digits of 2

= 28.

Factorial n : Product of n consecutive natural numbers
is known as factorial n it is denoted by n!.
So, n! = n(n 1)(n 2).............321.
e.g. 5! = 5 4 3 2 1 = 120.
The value of factorial zero is equal to the value of
factorial one. Hence 0! = 1 = 1!

Ex.71 What is the highest power of 2 that divides 20!
completely?
Sol. 20! = 1 2 3 4 .... 18 19 20
= 1 (2
1
) 3 (2
2
) 5 (2
1
3
1
) 7 (2
3
) ..... so on.
In order to find the highest power of 2 that divides the
above product, we need to find the sum of the powers
of all 2 in this expansion. All numbers that the divisible
by 2
1
will contribute 1 to the exponent of 2 in the product
1
2
20
= 10. Hence, 10 numbers contribute 2
1
to the
product. Similarly, all numbers that are divisible by 2
2
will contribute an extra 1 to the exponent of 2 in the
product, i.e
2
2
20
= 5. Hence, 5 numbers contribute an
extra 1 to exponents. Similarly, there are 2 numbers that
are divisible by 2
3
and 1 number that is divisible by 2
4
.
Hence, the total 1s contributed to the exponent of 2 in
20! is the sum of ( 10 + 5 +2 +1) = 18. Hence, group of
all 2s in 20! gives 2
18
x (N), where N is not divisible by
2. If 20! is divided by 2
x
then maximum value of x is 18.
Ex.72 What is the highest power of 5 that divides of
x = 100! = 100 99 98 ...... 3 2 1.
Sol. Calculating contributions of the different powers of 5,
we have
1
5
100
= 20,
2
5
100
= 4.
Hence, the total contributions to the power of 5 is 24, or
the number 100! is divisible by 5
24
.
Ex.73 How many zeros at the end of first 100 multiples of
10.
Sol. First 100 multiple of 10 are = 10 20 30 ...... 1000
= 10
100
(1 2 3 ....... 100)
= 10
100
10
24
N
= 10
124
N
Where N is not divisible by 10
So, there are 124 zero at the end of first 100 multiple of
10.
Ex.74 What is the highest power of 6 that divides 9!
Sol. By the normal method.
6
9
= 1 and
2
6
9
= 0. Thus
answers we get is 1 which is wrong. True there is just
one multiple of 6 from 1 to 9 but the product 2 3 = 6
and also 4 9 = 36, can further be divided by 6. Thus,
when the divisor is a composite number find the
highest power of its prime factors and then proceed. In
this case, 9! can be divided by 2
7
and 3
4
and thus by 6
4
(In this case we need not have checked power of 2 as
it would definitely be greater then that of 3).
Ex.75What is the largest power of 12 that would divide 49! ?
Sol. To check the highest power of 12 in 49!, we need to
check the highest powers of 4 and 3 in it.
Highest power of 3 in 49! = 22
Highest power of 2 in 49! = 46
Highest power of 4 in 49! =
2
46
= 23
Highest power of 12 will be 22. (Since the common
power between 3 and 4 is 22).
Ex.76 How many zeros will be there at the end of
! 36
! 36
?
Sol. Highest power of 5 in 36! is 8.
So there will be 8 zeros at the end of 36!
So at the end of
! 36
! 36 , there will be 8 36! zeros.
The number system that we work in is called the
decimal system. This is because there are 10 digits
in the system 09. There can be alternative system that
can be used for arithmetic operations. Some of the
most commonly used systems are : binary, octal and
hexadecimal.
These systems find applications in computing.
Binary system has 2 digits : 0, 1.
Octal system has 8 digits : 0, 1, 2..., 7.
Hexadecimal system has 16 digits : 0, 1, 2,..., 9, A , B,
C, D, E, F.
After 9, we use the letters to indicate digits. For instance,
A has a value 10, B has a value 11, C has a value 12,...
so on in all base systems.
The counting sequences in each of the systems would
be different though they follow the same principle.
Conversion : conversion of numbers from (i) decimal
system to other base system. (ii) other base system to
decimal system.
(i) Conversion from base 10 to any other base :
Ex.77 Convert (122)
10

Sol.
1 0
7 1 8

122 8
The number in decimal is consecutively divided by the
number of the base to which we are converting the
decimal number. Then list down all the remainders in
the reverse sequence to get the number in that base.
So, here (122)
10
= (172)

2 0.25 = 0.50 0
2 0.50 = 1.00 1

then find the value of a, b and c.
Sol. These problems involve basic number
(i) aa + bb = 11(a + b) (ii) aa, bb are twodigit numbers.
Hence, their sum cannot exceed 198. So, c must be 1.
(iii) Hence, cc0 = 110. This implies a + b = 10 or a = 6
and b = 4.
Such problems are part of a category of problems called
alphanumerices.

The logarithm of the number N to the base '
a
' is the
exponent indicating the power to which the base
'
a
' must be raised to obtain the number N. This
number is designated as log
a
N. Hence:
log
a
N = x a
x
= N , a > 0, a 1 & N > 0
Systems of Logarithm :
There are two systems of logarithm which are generally
used.
(i) Common logarithm : In this system base is always
taken as 10.
If a = 10, then we write log
b rather than log
10
b.
(ii) Natural logarithm : In this system the base of the
logarithm is taken as e. Where e is an irrational
number lying between 2 and 3.
If a = e, we write nb rather than log
e
b. Here '
e
' is
called as Napiers base & has numerical value equal
to 2.7182.
REMEMBER
log
10
2 = 0.3010 ; log
10
3 = 0.4771 ;
n 2 = 0.693 ; n 10 = 2.303
REMARK :
The exi stence and uni queness of the number
log
a
N can be determined with the help of set of
conditions, a > 0 and a = 1 and N > 0.
Some Useful Results :
(i) If a > 1 then
(a) log
a
x < 0 for all x satisfying 0 < x < 1

DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
It includes alimentary canal and digestive glands.
Alimentary canal starts from mouth and ends into
anus.
Mouth or Buccal Cavity : An adult has 16 teeth on
each jaw.
In each half of jaws starting from middle to backward
these are, incisors  2, canine  1, premolar  2, molars
 3 (2 + 1 + 2 + 3).
Dental formula is 2123/2123.
Last molars are called wisdom teeth.
Milk teeth start erupting after 6 months of birth and
appear between 6 to 24 months.
Dental formula of milk teeth is 2102/2102.
Stomach : Inner mucosa of stomach is raised into
larger number of longitudinal folds called gastric
rugae.
NUTRITION
It hel ps i n mechani cal churni ng and chemical
digestion of food.
The stomach of ruminant (cud chewing) animals have
compound stomach and consists of 4 chambers
rumen, reticulum; omasum and abomasum.
Rumen and reticulum harbour numerous bacteria
and Protozoa which help in digestion of cellulose
called symbiotic digestion.
Abomasum is true stomach as it secretes gastric juice
containing HCl and pepsin.
Small Intestine : Villi and microvilli increase the
surface area of digestion and absorption of food.
Pancreatic duct release few enzymes which act on
carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Large Intestine : In some herbivores (like horse and
ass), caecum is large and is a site of microbial
digestion of cellulose.
In man caecum very small vestigial organ and is called
appendix.

Knowledge Boosters :
(1) Salivary Glands : It produces saliva. In man only
three pairs of salivary glands are present.
(a) Parotid glands : largest glands present just below
the external ear. In this glands, virus causes mumps
disease.
(b) Submaxillary glands : these lie beneath the jaw
angles.
(c) Sublingual glands : smallest glands which lie
beneath the tongue and open at the floor of buccal
cavity.
(2) Gastric Glands: Present in the mucosa of the
stomach. These are of 3 types :
(a) Cardiac glands : secrete an alkaline mucus.
(b) Pyloric glands : secrete an alkaline mucus.
(c) Fundic glands : each gland has 4 types of cells.
1. Peptic / Zymogen cells  secrete pepsinogen,
prorennin
2. Oxyntic cells  secrete HCI
3. Goblet cells  secrete mucus
4. Argentaffin cells  produces serotonin, somatostatin
and histamine
(3) Liver : It is the largest gland and consists of a
large right lobe, a small left lobe and two small lobes.
On the right lobe lies gall bladder, which, stores bile
juice secreted by the liver.

Directions : (15 to 24) Find the missing term(s) :
Ex 15. B, E, H, ?
(A) K (B) L
(C) J (D) M
Sol. (A) In the given series, every letter is moved three
steps forward to obtain the corresponding letters
of the next term. So, the missing term is K.
Ex 16. Q, N, K, ?, E
(A) H (B) I
(C) J (D) G
Sol. (A) In the given series, every letter is moved three
steps backward to obtain the corresponding letters
of the next term. So, the missing term is H.
Ex 17. A, Y, D, W, G, U, J, ?
(A) R (B) T
(C) S (D) P
Sol. (C) The given sequence consists of two series :
I. A, D, G, J in which each letter is moved three
steps forward to obtain the next term
II. Y, W, U, ? in which each letter is moved two steps
backward to obtain the next term.
So, the missing term would be S.

Ex 19. AD, EI, JO, PV, ?
(A) VD (B) WC
(C) WD (D) VE
Sol. (C) The first letter of subsequent groups have a
difference of 4, 5 and 6 places respectively, whereas
the second letter of the subsequent groups has a
difference of 5, 6, and 7 places respectively,
Therefore, on following the same pattern, we get
WD as the next term which would replace the
question mark.
Ex 20. AB, BA, ABD, DBA, PQRS, ?
(A) SRQP (B) SRPQ
(C) SQRP (D) RSQP
Sol. (A) The first term is reversed to get second term.
The third term is reversed to get the fourth term.
Similarly, to get the sixth term, we reverse the fifth
term. So, the missing term would be SRQP.
Ex 21. HEJ, JGL, LIN, NKP, ?
(A) MOR (B) PNS
(C) PMR (D) NPT
Sol. (C) First letter of each group differs by 2 letters.
Second letter of each group differs by 2 letters.
Third letter of each group differs by 2 letters. All the
letters differ in the forward direction. Hence, the
next choice would be PMR.
Ex 22. XYQ, ZAR, BCS, DET, ?
(A) GFU (B) FUG
(C) FZU (D) FGU
Sol. (D) Here, first two terms of every group of letters
are in continuation, like XY, ZA, BC, DE, and the
third letter of each group is again in forward
continuation,
i.e. Q, R, S, T. Hence, the term replacing the
question mark would be FGU.
Ex 23. 17Z5, 15X4, 13V3, ?, 9R1
(A) 11S2 (B) 11T2
(C) 11U2 (D) 11T3
Sol. (B) The first number & second letter of every term
is moved two steps backward & the third number
of every term is moved one step backward. So, the
missing term would be 11T2.
Ex 24. (ABC) 6, (DEF) 15, (GHI) 24, ?
(A) (IJK) 33 (B) (JKM) 33
(C) (IJK) 32 (D) (JKL) 33

Ex 25. ABD, DGK, HMS, NTB, SBL, ZKW
(A) NTB (B) DGK
(C) SBL (D) ZKW
Sol. (A) First letter of first, second, third,.........terms is
moved three, four, fi ve, ........steps forward
respectively. Similarly, second letter is moved five,
six, seven,......steps forward respectively and third
letter is moved seven, eight, nine,........steps
forward respectively. Hence, NTB is the wrong term
and should be replaced by MTB.
Ex 26. EPV, FQW, GRX, HTY, ITZ
(A) FQW (B) GRX
(C) HTY (D) ITZ
Sol. (C) In every term, first second and third letter is in
alphabetical order to its next term respectively.

Sol. (B) First letter of every term is moved three steps
forward in each next term. Second number of every
term of the pattern 2 + 1, 2 + 2, 2 + 3,............and
third letter of every term is moved two steps
backward. Hence, G10T is the wrong term and
should be replaced by G9T.
LETTER REPEATING SERIES
Pattern of such questions is that some letters in
sequence are missing.
(i) The letters may be in cyclic order (clockwise or
anticlockwise).
(ii) To solve a problem, we have to select one of the
al ternative from the gi ven alternati ves. The
alternative which gives a sequence form of letters
is the choice.
Directions : (28 to 32) Find the missing term(s) :
Ex 28. a a _ b a a _ b b b _ a
(A) baa (B) abb
(C) bab (D) aab
PAGE # 69
Sol. (A) we proceed step by step to solve the above
series:
Steps :
1. The first blank space should be filled in by 'b' so
that we have two a's followed by two b's.
2. Second blank space should be filled in by 'a' so
that we have three a's followed by three b' s.
3. The last blank space must be filled in by 'a' to keep
the series in sequence.
Ex 29. _ bca _ ca _ c _ b _
(A) aabbc (B) abbbc
(C) aabcc (D) abbac
Sol. (D)
Series is abc/ abc/ abc/ abc. So, pattern abc is
repeated.
Ex. 30 a _ abb _ aa _ ba _ a _ b
(A) ababa (B) aabba
(C) aabab (D) aaabb
Sol (C) Series is aaabb/ aaabb/ aaabb. So, pattern
aaabb is repeated.
Ex 31. a _ c _ abb _ ca _ a
(A) baca (B) bbca
(C) bacc (D) bacb
Sol (A) Series is abc/ aabbcc/ aaa
Ex 32. bc _ b _ c _ b _ ccb
(A) cbcb (B) bbcb
(C) cbbc (D) bcbc
Sol (A) Series is bccb / bccb / bccb. So, pattern bccb is
repeated
Directions : (33 to 34) The question given below is based
on the letter series, In series, some letters are
missing. Select the correct alternative. If more than
five letters are missing, select the last five letters
of the series.
Ex 33. xyzu _ yz _ v _ _ uv _ _ _ _ _ _ _
(A) uvxyz (B) vuzyx
(C) uvzyx (D) vuxyz
Sol. (A) The series is x y z u v / y z u v x/ z u v x y/u v x y z
Thus the letters are written in a cyclic order.
EX 34. abcd _ bc _ e _ _ de _ _ _ _ _ _ _
(A) deabc (B) edcba
(C) decba (D) edabc
Sol. (A) The series is a b c d e / b c d e a / c d e a b / b e a b c
Thus the letters are written in a cyclic order.
Direction : (35 to 36) There is a letter series in the first row
and a number series in the second row. Each
number in the number series stands for a letter in
the letter series. Since in each of that series some
term are missing you have to find out as to what
those terms are, and answer the questions based
on these as given below in the series.
Ex 35. a _ h _ _ c _ n e _ h _ e a c _ _ _ _ _
2 1 _ 4 3 _ 5 _ _ 2 5 4 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
The last five terms in the series are
(A) 32524 (B) 43215
(C) 25314 (D) 32541
Sol. (B) By taking a = 2, c = 1, n = 4, h = 5 and e = 3, the
numbers series runs as 21543 15432 54321
43215. If first digit of a group of five digits is placed
as the last digit, we obtain the second group of five
digits and so on.
Ex 36. _ m y e _ _ y l x _ y l m _ _ l _ _ _ _
4 6 _ 5 8 6 _ _ _ 5 7 _ 6 5 8 _ _ _ _ _
The last five terms of the number series are
(A) 46758 (B) 74658
(C) 76485 (D) 46785
Sol. (D) By taking e = 5, l = 4, m = 6, y = 7 and x = 8 the
number series runs as 46758 67485 74658 46785.
By taking the digits in the groups of five, we find
that first digit of the first group (i.e. 4) is the third
digit of the second group and the last two digits
have interchanged their positions. The same rule
applies in others groups also.
Direction : (37) In the following question, three sequences
of letter/numbers are given which correspond to
each other in some way. In the given question, you
have to find out the letter/numerals that come in
the vacant places marked by (?). These are given
as one of the four alternatives under the question.
Mark your answer as instructed.
Ex 37. C B _ _ D _ B A B C C B
_ _ 2 3 5 4 _ _ ? ? ? ?
p _ p q _ r _ q _ _ _ _
(A) 4 5 5 4 (B) 4 3 3 4
(C) 4 2 2 4 (D) 2 5 5 2
Sol. (C) Comparing the positions of the capital letters,
numbers and small letters, we find p corresponds
to C and 2 corresponds to p. So, p and 2 correspond
to C. q corresponds to A and 3 corresponds to q.
So, q and 3 corresponds to A. Also, 5 corresponds
to D. So, the remaining number i.e., 4 corresponds
to B. So, BCCB corresponds to 4, 2, 2, 4.

7I 21K 3M
4D ? 7J
(A) 11E (B) 28G
(C) 35I (D) 48F
Sol. (B) The letters in the first row form a series C, D, E
(a series consecutive letters). The letters in the
second row form a series I, K, M (a series of
alternate letters). Similarly, the letters in the third
row will form the series D, G, J (a series in which
each letter is three steps ahead of the previous
one). So, the missing letter is G. Also, the
number in the second column is equal to the
product of the numbers in the first and third
columns. So, missing number is (4 7) i.e. 28.
Thus, the answer is 28G.

Mumbai University.
From III, We get Dr. Natrajan is neither in Osmania
nor in Delhi University. Therefore, he will be either
at Mumbai or Gujarat University. Similarly, as he
teaches neither geology nor history, therefore, he
must be teaching physics or botany. ..........(1)
From IV, Dr. Zia Physics but as he is not teaching
in either Mumbai or Osmania University, he must
be teaching either in Delhi or Gujarat University...(2)

Directions : (7 to 11) Read the following information carefully
and answer the questions given below it :
There are five men A, B, C, D and E and six women
P, Q, R, S, T and U. A, B and R are advocates; C, D,
P, Q and S are doctors and the rest are teachers.
Some teams are to be selected from amongst

(C) A P R S U (D) B E Q R S
Sol. (B) The male advocates are A and B, lady doctors
are P, Q and S ; teachers are E, T and U.
Now, A and B will be selected.
A, P and U have to be together. Now, we have to
select one lady doctor more. It can be Q or S. But Q
and E have to be together. Since E is not selected,
so S will be selected. Thus, the team is A B P U S.

Ex 8. If the team is to consist of one advocate, two
doctors, three teachers and C may not go with T,
the members of the team are :
(A) A E P Q S U (B) A E P Q T U
(C) B E Q S T U (D) E Q R S T U
Sol. (B) The advocates are A, B and R ; doctors are
C, D, P, Q, S ; teachers are E, T and U. The team
consists of 3 teachers i.e. E, T, U. Now, A, P and U
have to be together. E and Q have to be together.
Thus, the team is A E P Q T U.
Ex 9. If the team is to consist of one male advocate, one
male doctor, one lady doctor and two teachers, the
members of the team are :
(A) A C P T U (B) A D E P T
(C) A D E P U (D) B C E Q U
Sol. (A) The male advocates are A and B ; male doctors
are C and D ; lady doctors are P, Q and S ; teachers
are E, T and U. If A is selected, P and U will be
selected. D and P cannot go together. So, a male
doctor C will be selected. C and T have to be
together. Thus, the team is A C P T U. If B is
selected, D will not be selected. So, male doctor C
will be chosen. C and T have to be together. Now,
the second teacher to be selected is E or U. But, U
cannot go without A. So, E will be selected. E and Q
have to be together. Thus, the team can also be
B C E Q T.
Ex 10. If the team is to consist of one advocate, three
doctors and one male teacher, the members of
the team are:
(A) A D P S U (B) C D R S T
(C) D E Q R S (D) D E Q R T
Sol. (C) The advocates are A, B and R ; the doctors are
C, D, P, Q and S ; male teacher is E. Clearly, E will
be selected. E and Q have to be together. C and Q
cannot be together. So, C will not be selected. P
also cannot be selected because U is not selected.
So, two other doctors D and S will be selected. P is
not selected, so A will not be selected. D is
selected, so B cannot be selected. Thus, the team
is D E Q R S.
Ex 11. If the team is to consist of two advocates, two
doctors, two teachers and not more than three
ladies, the members of the team are :
(A) A B C P T U (B) A C P R T U
(C) A E P Q R T (D) B C E Q R T
Sol. (A) A C P R T U and A E P Q R T are wrong because
each of these combinations consists of four ladies.
B C E Q R T is incorrect because B and R cannot
go together.

CALENDAR AND CLOCK TEST
We are to find the day of the week on a mentioned
date. Certain concepts are defined as under.
An ordinary year has 365 days.
In an ordinary year, first and last day of the year are
same.
A leap year has 366 days. Every year which is
divisible by 4 is called a leap year. For example
1200, 1600, 1992, 2004, etc. are all leap years.
For a leap year, if first day is Monday than last day
will be Tuesday for the same year.
In a leap year, February is of 29 days but in an
ordinary year, it has only 28 days.
Year ending in 00's but not divisiable by 400 is not
considered a leap year. e.g., 900, 1000, 1100, 1300,
1400, 1500, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2100 are not leap
years.
The day on which calendar started (or the very first
day ) i.e., 1 Jan, 0001 was Monday.
Calendar year is from 1 Jan to 31 Dec. Financial
year is from 1 April to 31 March.
ODD DAYS
The no. of days exceeding the complete no. of
weeks in a duration is the no. of odd days during
that duration.
COUNTING OF ODD DAYS
Every ordinary year has 365 days = 52 weeks +1 day.
Ordinary year has 1 odd day.
Every leap year 366 days = 52 weeks + 2 days.
Leap year has 2 odd days.
Odd days of 100 years = 5,
Odd days of 200 years = 3,
Odd days of 300 years = 1,
Odd days of 400 years = 0.
Explanation :
100 years = 76 ordinary years + 24 leap years
( The year 100 is not a leap year)
= 76 odd days + 2 24 odd days = 124 odd days.
Odd days =
7
124
= 5 odd days.
Similarly, 200 years = 10 odd days = 03 odd days
300 years =
7
15
= 1 odd day..
400 years =
7
1 20
= 0 odd day (1 is added as 400
is a leap year)
Similarly, 800, 1200, 1600, 2000, 2400 years
contain 0 odd days.
After counting the odd days, we find the day
according to the number of odd days.
Sunday for 0 odd day, Monday for 1 odd day and so
on as shown in the following table.

General Dice : In a general dice the sum of numbers
on the any two adjacent faces is 7.
Standard Dice : In a standard dice the sum of
numbers on the opposite faces is '7'.
Ex 16. Which number is opposite 4 in a standard dice
given below ?
4
1
5
(A) 1 (B) 3
(C) 5 (D) Cant be determined
Sol. Clearly , from the standard dice the sum of
numbers on the opposite faces is '7', so number
opposite to 4 is 3.
TypeII
Ex 17. The figures given below show the two different
positions of a dice. Which number will appear
opposite to number 2 ?.
(A) 3 (B) 4
(C) 5 (D) 6
Sol. (C) The above question,
where only two positions of
a dice are given, can easily
be solved with the
following method.
Step I. The dice, when unfolded, will appear as shown in
the figure given on the right side.
Step II. Write the common number to both the dice in the
middle block. Since common number is 4, hence
number 4 will appear in the central block.
Step III. Consider the figure (i) and write the first number in
the anti cl ockwi se di recti on of number 4,
(common number) in block I and second number
in block II. Therefore, numbers 3 and 2 being the
first and second number to 4 in anticlockwise
directions respectively, will appear in block I & II
respectively.
Step IV. Consider figure (ii) and wire first and second
number in the anticlockwise direction to number
4, (common number) in block (III) & (IV). Hence
numbers 6 and 5 will appear in the blocks III and IV
respectively.
Step V. Write remaining number in the remaining block.
Therefore, number 1 will come in the remaining
block. Now, from the unfolded figures we find that
number opposite to 6 is 3, number opposite to 2 is
5 and number opposite to 4 is 1. Therefore, option
(C) is our answer.
( Short Trick : From the given dice, we will take the
common number as the base and then in its
respect move clockwise direction and write as
follows : 4 2 3
4 5 6.
Here,we find that number opposite to 6 is 3, number
opposite to 2 is 5 and number opposite to 4 is
remaining number 1.
Therefore, option (C) is our answer. )
Ex 18. On the basis of two figures of dice, you have to tell
what number will be on the opposite face of number
5 ?
(A) 1 (B) 2
(C) 4 (D) 6
PAGE # 93
Sol. (D) The above question where only two positions
of a dice are given, can easily be solved with the
following method :
If in the given dice, there are two numbers common,
then uncommon numbers will always be opposite
of each other.
Therefore, option (D) is our answer.
TypeIII
Ex 19. From the following figures of dice, find which
number will come in place of ?
(A) 4 (B) 5
(C) 2 (D) 3
Sol. (D) If the above dice is unfolded, it will look like as
the figure (i) given below.
Figure (i)
Now the number in place of ? can be obtained by
making a slight change in the figure as given here.
Now comparing figure (ii) with third dice as above,
we get that number in place of ? is 3.
Figure (ii)
TypeIV
Ex 20. A dice has been thrown four times and produces
following results.
Which number will appear opposite to the number
3 ?
(A) 4 (B) 5
(C) 6 (D) 1
Sol. (A) From the figures (i), (ii) and (iv) we find that
numbers 6, 1, 5 and 2 appear on the adjacent
surfaces to the number 3. Therefore, number 4
will be opposite to number 3.
TypeV
Ex 21. Which of the following dices is identical to the
unfolded figure as shown here ?
(X)
(A) (B)
(C) (D)
Sol. (A) From the unfolded figure of dice, we find that
number opposite to 2 is 4, for 5 it is 3 and for 1 it is
6. From this result we can definitely say that figure
(B), (C) and (D) can not be the answer figure as
numbers lying on the opposite pair of surfaces are
present on the adjacent surfaces.
