Last Minute Preparation

JEE Advanced Chemistry Preparation: Last Minute Preparation

The below-mentioned tips will be very useful to the students in the last minute before your JEE Advance Examination:

  • Make sure that your basics are clear. 
  • Go through the formulas daily. Revise multiple times a day when there is less than one week left. 
  • Revise all the basic formulas for the organic compounds, and make sure you are not confused. 
  • Revise all the topics: after completing your preparation you have to go through all the topics in repeated mode, revise thoroughly. Spend at least your last 3 to 4 days for revision. Kindly don’t start any new topic at the last minute, if you do so it will confuse you and it takes your time off.
  • Solve previous year question paper and take mock tests: 
  • Time management: Time management is more important while solving problems. Never spend too much time on a particular question then it can affect your timings for other questions. Firstly start with easy questions and then move on to difficult questions.
  • Here are some important topics to focus on while preparing for JEE Advanced Chemistry: 
Subject Topic
Physical Chemistry Mole Concept Atomic Structure Chemical Kinetics, Electrochemistry
Organic Chemistry General Organic Chemistry Named Reactions Organic Synthesis
Inorganic Chemistry P-block elements Properties of atoms

Sample Questions

JEE Advanced Chemistry Sample Questions

  1. Which of the following liberates O2 upon hydrolysis?

a) Pb3O4

b) KO2

c) Na2O2

d) Li2O2

Answer: (B), KO2 Superoxides liberate oxygen with water.

  1. Aluminium reacts with sulfuric acid to form aluminium sulfate and hydrogen. What is the volume of hydrogen gas in litres (L) produced at 300 K and 1.0 atm pressure, when 5.4 g of aluminium and 50.0 mL of 5.0 M sulfuric acid are combined for the reaction?

(Use the molar mass of aluminum as 27.0 g mol−1, ???? = 0.082 atm L mol−1 K−1)

Answer: 2Al + 3H2SO4 → Al2(SO4)3 + 3H2

Mole of Al taken = 5.4 / 27 = 0.2

Mole of H2SO4 taken = 50 X 5 / 1000 = 0.25

As 0.2 / 2 > 0.25 / 3, H2SO4 is limiting reagent

Now, moles of H2 formed = 3 / 3 X 0.25 = 0.25

Therefore Volume = 0.25 x 0.082 x 300 / 1 = 24.6 / 4 = 6.15 L

  1. Na and Mg crystallize in BCC and FCC type crystals respectively. Then the number of atoms of Na and Mg present in the unit cell of their respective crystal is (2002)
    1. 4 and 2
    2. 9 and 14
    3. 14 and 9
    4. 2 and 4

Answer: (D), no of atoms per unit cell= 8*1/8+6*1/2=4

  1. How many unit cells are present in a cube shaped ideal crystal of NaCl of mass 1.00 g? (Atomic masses: Na = 23, Cl = 35.5)
    1. 5.14 x 1021 unit cell
    2. 1.28 x 1021 unit cell
    3. 1.71 x 1021 unit cell
    4. 2.57 x 1021 unit cell

Answer: (D), no of unit cell= 1.0*6.02*1023/58.5*4= 2.57*1021

  1. Which one of the following statements is NOT true about the effect of an increase in temperature on the distribution of molecular speeds in a gas?
  1. The most probable speed increases
  2. The fraction of the molecules with the most probable speed increases
  3. The distribution becomes broader
  4. The area under the distribution curve remains the same as under the lower temperature

Answer: (B), most probable velocity increases and a fraction of the molecule possessing the most probable velocity decreases.

  1. The formation of gas at the surface of tungsten due to adsorption is the reaction of order?
    1. 0
    2. 1
    3. 2
    4. 3

Answer: (A), it is a zero-order reaction.

  1. The internal energy change when a system goes from state A to B is 40 kJ/mol-1 if the system goes from A to B by a reversible path and returns to state A by an irreversible path. What would be the net change in internal energy?
    1. > 40 kJ
    2. <40 kJ
    3. Zero
    4. 40 kJ

Answer: (C), for a cyclic process the net change in the internal energy is zero because the change in internal energy does not depend on the path.
