Additional Questions and Answers

Q.1. What is a chemical equation?

Q.5. What is combination reactions? Give one example? 

Ans :- A reactions in which a single product is formed fro two or more reactants is known as a combination reaction. 

For example :- CaO + H₂O  →  Ca(OH)₂

Q.6. Give two examples of exothermic reactions?

Example :-          

Q.8. Why silver chloride turns grey in sunlight ?

Q.9. Balance the following skeletal equations-

(i) KCIO₃ → KCI + O₂ 

(ii) CH₄ + O₂ → CO₂ + H₂O 

(iii) Nacl + H₂SO₄ → Na₂So₄ + HCI 

(iv) H₂S + O₂ → H₂O + S 

(v) H₂ + N₂ → NH₃ 

Ans. (i) 2KCIO₃ → 2KCI + 3O₂ 

(ii) CH₄ + 2O₂ → CO₂ + 2H₂O 

(iii) 2Nacl + H₂SO₄ → Na₂So₄ + 2HCI 

(iv) 2H₂S + O₂ → 2H₂O + 2S 

(v) 3H₂ + N₂ → 2NH₃ 

Q.10. What is the need to balance a chemical equation with respect to mass and change? 

Ans :- The chemical equation must be balanced with respect to mass because matter can neither be created nor destroyed. The equation must be balanced with respect to charge because the electrons lost by atoms to form cations are equal to the electrons gained by other atoms to form anions. Thus, as the reaction mixture does not contain any free electrons, the total positive change should be equal to the total negative charge. 

Q.11. Identify the substance oxidized and reduced in the chemical reaction.

MnO₂ + 4HCI → MnCI₂ + Cl₂ + 2H₂O 

Ans :-  oxidised :- HCI 

            Reduced :- MnO₂

(iii) The machine parts should be oiled and greased. 

(iv) Galvanised iron pipes are used for water supply. 

Q.15. Name the type of reactions :

Q.17. What is a redox reaction? 

Ans :- a chemical reaction in which one substance oxidised and the other is reduced is called a redox reaction. All oxidation reduction reaction are redox reaction. In a chemical reaction, a substance get oxidised only when another substance is present gets reduced.
