8 What volume of 0.150 M FeCl3(aq) solution is needed to react completely with 20.0 mL of 0.0450 M AgNO3(aq)?
What mass of AgCl will be formed? The net ionic reaction is: Ag+(aq) + Cl-(aq) AgCl(s) [6 marks]

9 When light of wavelength 231 nm shines on the surface of caesium metal, electrons are ejected with a maximum
kinetic energy of 5.2 x 10-19 J. Calculate: (a) the frequency (in s-1) of the light, (b) the binding energy of
electrons to the caesium metal, (c) the longest wavelength of light that will eject electrons. [5 marks]
