 Exam Questions NCERT Class 9 Science Chapter 1 Matter in Our Surroundings

Question. What is the significance of boiling point and melting point of a substance?
Ans : The significance of boiling point and melting point is that it shows the purity of the substance.

Question When we put CuSO4 in water, after some time we find the solution turns blue. Why? Also, on heating it, what change will occur?
Ans : The solution turns blue because of diffusion. On heating the solution, nothing will happen.

Question Give the temperature at which water exists in two different phases/states.
Ans : (i) At 0°C water can be in solid or in liquid state.
(ii) At 100°C water can be in liquid or in gaseous state.

Question The melting point of ice is 273.16 K. What does this mean? Explain in detail.
Ans : Ice is solid at 0°C, i.e. 273 K. The molecules of ice are tightly packed. These molecules have to overcome the force of attraction with which they are held and hence, they gain this heat from the surrounding but the temperature remains the same as their energy is used to overcome the force of attraction between the particles. The particles of ice start vibrating freely and a stage reaches when the solid ice melts and is converted to liquid state at the same temperature,
i.e. 273 K.

Question How can you justify that table is a solid?
Ans : When we apply force on the table it doesn’t change its shape because its inter- molecules are tightly packed, this shows that table is solid.

Question The boiling point of alcohol is 78°C. What is this temperature on Kelvin scale?
Ans : K = °C + 273 = 78 + 273 = 351 K

Question Why are light and sound not considered as matter?
Ans : Light and sound are not considered as matter because they have no mass and do not occupy space.
