Explain the mechanism of micelle formation.
Micelles are formed by association of such molecules in which both lyophilic and lyophobic parts are present. Such molecules are called surface active molecules.
Hydrocarbon chain in soap, sodium stearate C17H35COONa is lyophobic or hydrophobic while -COONa is lyophilic or hydrophilic. The hydrocarbon tails are in the interior of the micelle and C00– ions on the surface. The grease stain absorbed in to the interior of the micelle which behaves like liquid hydrocarbon. As the strain is detached from the fabric, the dirt particles sticking to the strain are also removed.
The formation of micelle and action of detergent can be explained by following figures.

(b) Cottrell precipitator
(a) Dialysis: The process of dialysis is based on the fact that colloidal particles can not be diffused from parchment membrane or cell membrane and cell wall while the ions of electrolyte are diffused.
The colloidal solution taken in a bag made of cellophane or parchment. The bag is suspended in water. The impurities of electrolyte are diffused slowly towards outside and pure colloidal solution remains in dialysis apparatus. The process of the separating the paricles of colloids from those of crystalloids by means of diffusion through a suitable membrane is called dialysis.
(b) Cottrell precipitator: Smoke is a colloidal solution of carbon, arsenic compounds, dust etc in air, These carbon partieles are precipitated in direct contact with oppositely charged metallic plates for separation in smoke and the gases which evolved form chimney are smokeless. This precipitator is called cottrell smoke precipitator.
Describe the formation of colloidal solution of platinum in water dispersion method.
Colloidal solutions of metals are obtained by this method. The metal whose sol is to be prepared is made as two electrodes immersed in dispersion medium such as water. The dispersion medium is kept cool by surrounding it with a freezing mixture.
An electric arc is struck between the electrodes the tremendous heat generated by the arc vaporises the metals which are condensed immediately in the liquid to give colloidal solution. The colloidal solution of Pt is prepared by this method. Such obtained colloids are water repellent so small quantity of KOH is mixed for their stability.
Discuss the process of electrophoresis with neat and labelled diagram.
The movement of colloidal particles towards oppositely charged electrodes in presence of electric filed is called electrophoresis. The movement of colloidal particles towards cathode is called positive electrophoresis and towards anode is called negative electrophoresis.
The nature of charge present on colloidal particle can be determined with the help of electrophoresis. Example:
Colloidal particles of As2S3 move towards anode in the presence of electric field so these colloidal particles are negatively charged.
Charged colloidal particles loose their charge by reaching oppositely charged electrode on passing electric current.
Now, neutral colloidal particles on aggregation, coagulate to form large particles.
Write a mathematical equation of Freundlich adsorption isotherm.
Freundlich Adsorption Isotherm:
The variation of extent of adsorption (x/ m) with pressure (P) at a particular temperature was given mathematically by Freundlich in 1909. From the adsorption isotherm, the following observations can be easily made :
(i) At low pressure:
The graph is almost straight line which indicates that (x/ m) is directly proportional to the pressure. This may be expressed as:
Where k is a constant.
(ii) At high pressure:
The graph becomes almost horizontal which means that x/ m becomes independent of pressure. This may be expressed by
( ∵ Po = 1)
(iii) At medium pressure:
The value of + depends on the power of pressure whose value is between zero to one.
n and k are constant whose value depend on the nature of adsorbate and adsorbent. This relationship was first given by Freundlich. So it is also called Freundlich adsorption isotherm. By taking logarithm of both sides of equation (3).
Comparing eq. (4) to y’= c + mx so if graph is plotted between and log P, then a straight line is obtained.
The slope of the line will be equal to and intercept will be equal to log k.

Explain the following with the help of diagram
(i) Tyndall effect
(ii) Brownian movement.
(i) Tyndall effect:
When light beam is allowed to pass through a true solution in dark then light does not seen in solution till the eyes have not close in the path of direction of light but when light beam is passed through colloidal solution then this light is seen in the form of bright line. This phenomenon is called Tyndall effect.

Describe the following methods for the formation of colloidal solution
(i) Bredig-Arc method
(ii) Colloidal mill.
(i) Bredig-Arc method:
Colloidal solutions of metals are obtained by this method. The metal, whose sol is to be prepared, is made as two electrodes immersed in dispersion medium such as water. The dispersion medium is kept cool by surrounding it with a freezing mixture.
An electric arc is struck between the electrodes. The tremendous heat generated by the arc vaporises the metals which are condensed immediately in the liquid to give colloidal solution. The colloidal solution of the metals are water repellant so small quantity of KOH is mixed for their stability.
(ii) Colloidal mill:
A colloidal mill is a machine that is used to reduce the particle size of a solid in suspension in a liquid, or to reduce the droplet size of a liquid suspended in another liquid. It consists of two metallic discs nearly touching each other and rotating in opposite directions to very high speed.
The space between the discs of the mill is so adjusted that coarse suspension is subjected to great shearing force giving rise to particles of colloidal size. Colloidal solutions of black ink, paints, varnishes, dyes etc are obtained by this method.

These are not diffused from animal membrane.
These are diffused from animal membrane. But the classification of substance given by Grahm was not satisfactory completely, because a specific compound behaves as crystalloids in one solvent and also as colloid in other solvent.
The aqueous solution of NaCl is crystalloid while it behaves as colloid in benzene.
(c) The wavelength of blue colour is very less hence its scattering is very high. Due to this reason, sky appears as blue.
Discuss the factors affecting adsorption of gases on solid surface.
The exact amount of a gas adsorbed at the surface of a solid depends upon the following factors:
(i) Nature of gas (adsorbate):
If critical temperature of gas is higher, the van der Waal’s forces of attraction will be greater so adsorption will be greater. Critical temperatures of a few gases are given below:
|Critical Temperature K||33||126||134||190||304|
(ii) Nature of solid (adsorbent):
Greater the surface area per unit mass of the solid, greater is the extent of adsorption.
(iii) Effect of temperature:
Adsorption is accompained by evolution of heat.
∆H = -ve. According to Le-Chateliers’s principle, the rate of adsorption decreases with increase in temperature.
(iv) Effect of pressure:
At constant temperature, adsorption increases with pressure. If the temperature is kept constant at low value, the effect will be large.
