Section II – Free Response Questions
Beginning with the 2007 examination, the numerical problems, 1, 2, and 3, are Part A. Students may use a calculator for this part (55
minutes). Part B (40 minutes) is the three reactions question (predict the products of a reaction, balance, and answer a short question
regarding the reaction) and the two theory questions. A laboratory question could be in either part A or B. NO calculator is allowed in
part B.

ANSWERS. It is to your advantage to do this, because you may earn partial credit if you do and you will
receive little or no credit if you do not. Attention should be paid to significant figures. Be sure to write all
your answers to the questions on the lined pages following each question in this booklet.
Answer Question 1, 2, and 3. The Section II score weighting for each question is 20 percent.
Answer Question 4 below. The Section II score weighting for this question is 10 percent. (Note: I have
included below only 1 of the 3 reactions listed in this question.)
4. For (each of) the following (three) reaction(s), in part (i) write a balanced equation for the reaction and in
part (ii) answer the question about the reaction. In part (i), coefficients should be in terms of lowest whole
numbers. Assume that solutions are aqueous unless otherwise indicated. Represent substances in solutions
as ions if the substances are extensively ionized. Omit formulas for any ions or molecules that are
unchanged by the reaction. You may use the empty space at the bottom of the next page for scratch work,
but only equations that are written in the answer boxes provided will be graded.
(a) Solid copper(II) sulfate pentahydrate is gently heated.
(i) Balanced equation:
(ii) How many grams of water are present in 1.00 mol of copper(II) sulfate pentahydrate?
Answer Question 5 and Question 6. The Section II score weighting for these questions is 15 percent each.
Your responses to these questions will be graded on the basis of the accuracy and relevance of the information
cited. Explanations should be clear and well organized. Examples and equations may be included in your
responses where appropriate. Specific answers are preferable to broad, diffuse responses.

A solution of 0.100 M HCl and a solution of 0.100 M NaOH are prepared. A 40.0 mL sample of one of the
solutions is added to a beaker and then titrated with the other solution. A pH electrode is used to obtain the
data that are plotted in the titration curve shown above.
Identify the solution that was initially added to the beaker. Explain your reasoning.
On the titration curve above, circle the point that corresponds to the equivalence point.
At the equivalence point, how many moles of titrant have been added?
The same titration is to be performed again, this time using an indicator. Use the information in the table
below to select the best indicator for the titration. Explain your choice.
pH Range of
Color Change
Methyl violet
0 - 1.6
Methyl red
Alizarin yellow

(e) What is the difference between the equivalence point of a titration and the end point of a titration?
(f) On the grid provided on the next page, sketch the titration curve that would result if the solutions in the
beaker and buret were reversed (i.e., if 40.0 mL of the solution used in the buret in the previous titration
were titrated with the solution that was in the beaker).
