Answer

c.

Explanation

When iron is dissolves in HCl, hydrogen is produced

Fe + 2HCl → FeCl 2 + H 2

From the ideal gas equation PV = nRT

Equation

From the given data Equation

Equation

Equation

Equation

n = weight/molecular weight

=50/56

By substituting the values in above equation

Equation

Equation

This is equal to volume change when reaction is carried out in open beaker.

Work done by the system W=-P∆V

=-1.0 Equation

=-2212.39J.
