CLEP Chemistry - FAQ Sample Questions

Identify the major components of a green oil extracted from coal tar.

Correct Answer:
all of the above

a green oil extracted from coal tar, commonly referred to as anthracene oil, contains several key components that are integral to its composition and utility. this oil is a byproduct of the distillation process of coal tar, which is itself a byproduct generated during the production of coke and coal gas from coal. among the various fractions obtained from coal tar distillation, anthracene oil is notable for its specific set of hydrocarbon constituents.

the primary components of anthracene oil include phenanthrene, anthracene, and naphthalene. each of these components has distinct chemical properties and uses, contributing to the importance of anthracene oil in various industrial applications.

phenanthrene, a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (pah), is recognized for its three fused benzene rings in a linear arrangement. it is used in the manufacture of dyes, plastics, and pesticides, and serves as a starting material for the synthesis of other chemicals.

anthracene, another pah found in anthracene oil, consists of three fused benzene rings arranged in an angular formation. it is primarily used in the production of dyes, specifically alizarin, and other pigments. additionally, anthracene is utilized in the synthesis of anthraquinone, a precursor to various dyes and industrial chemicals.

naphthalene, the simplest polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon with two fused benzene rings, is widely known for its use in mothballs and as a pesticide. beyond these common uses, naphthalene is also a precursor to other chemical compounds, including synthetic resins and the manufacture of phthalic anhydride, which is essential in the production of plastics and synthetic fibers.

together, these components make anthracene oil a valuable fraction in the processing of coal tar, with applications spanning from chemical synthesis to industrial manufacturing. the understanding of these components and their interactions is crucial for optimizing the use of coal tar derivatives in various industries.

Identify the category of crystalline solids for each term - CO2, BaSO4, brass, and diamond.

Correct Answer:
molecular, ionic, metallic, covalent

to address the categorization of crystalline solids for co2, baso4, brass, and diamond, we need to understand the nature of the bonding and structure of each material. here's an expanded explanation for each:

**co2 (carbon dioxide)** – co2 when solid is commonly referred to as dry ice. the solid form of co2 is classified as a molecular solid. molecular solids are characterized by discrete covalently bonded molecules held together by weaker forces such as van der waals forces, dipole-dipole interactions, or hydrogen bonds. in solid co2, the molecules are held together mainly by van der waals forces. these intermolecular forces are relatively weak, which results in lower melting and boiling points for molecular solids.

**baso4 (barium sulfate)** – baso4 is categorized as an ionic solid. ionic solids are composed of positively and negatively charged ions held together by strong electrostatic forces called ionic bonds. in baso4, barium ions (ba^2+) and sulfate ions (so4^2−) combine to form a solid that features a repeating lattice of these ions. the ionic bonds in baso4 result in high melting and boiling points, and such solids are typically hard and brittle.

**brass (alloy of copper and zinc)** – brass is classified as a metallic solid. metallic solids consist of atoms arranged in a lattice, but unlike ionic or covalent networks, the electrons in metallic solids are delocalized. this sea of delocalized electrons, or electron cloud, surrounds the metal cations and facilitates the conductivity of heat and electricity. the positive ions (cations) in brass, primarily copper and zinc, are held together by these mobile electrons, which also give metallic solids their characteristic malleability and ductility.

**diamond (allotropic form of carbon)** – diamond is a covalent or network solid. in diamond, each carbon atom is tetrahedrally bonded to four other carbon atoms through strong covalent bonds. this extensive network of covalent bonds results in a very hard and rigid structure. covalent solids like diamond have very high melting points and are usually very hard, qualities that make diamond an excellent material for cutting tools.

each of these substances exemplifies the distinctive physical and chemical properties typical of their respective categories of crystalline solids, driven primarily by the nature of their bonding and molecular arrangements.
