 Exam Questions NCERT Class 9 Science Chapter 4 Structure of the Atom


Question. Give the number of electron, proton and neutron in 59CO27 and 108Ag47.
Ans :
(i) Number of protons in Co = 27
(ii) Number of electrons in Co = 27
(iii) Number of neutrons in Co = 59 – 27 = 32
(iv) Number of protons in Ag = 47
(v) Number of electrons in Ag = 47
(vi) Number of neutrons in Ag = 108 – 47 = 61

Question. Do isotopes of an element have similar chemical properties?
Ans : Isotopes of an element have similar chemical properties because they have the same atomic number and valence electrons.

Question. Are noble gases inert?
Ans : The outermost shell of the atoms of noble gases are completely filled. So, they do not show affinity towards chemical reactions.

Question. What are valence electrons?
Ans : The electrons present in the outermost shell of an atom are known as valence electrons.

Question. Give two uses of isotopes in the field of medicines.
Ans : (i) An isotope of cobalt is used in the treatment of cancer.
(ii) An isotope of iodine is used in the treatment of goitre.

Question. What is meant by electronic configuration of elements?
Ans : The systematic distribution of electrons in various orbits of an atom is called electronic configuration of elements.

Question. Define atomic number. How it is denoted?
Ans : Number of protons of an atom determines its atomic number. It is denoted by ‘Z’.

Question. Why helium have zero valency?
Ans : Helium have zero valency because its outermost orbit is completely filled.

Question. Give the derivative source of sodium.
Ans : The symbol of Na for sodium is derived from its Latin name ‘Natrium’.

Question. Give drawbacks of Rutherford’s model.
Ans : Drawbacks of Rutherford’s model :
(i) Unable to explain the source of energy required for movement of electrons.
(ii) Unable to explain as to why a moving charge does not lose energy and fall into the nucleus.
(iii) It could not explain about the emission of radiations of different frequencies by different atoms when heated.
(iv) It could not explain the stability of an atom when charged electrons are moving under the attractive force of positively charged nucleus.

Question. Helium atom has an atomic mass of 4u and two protons in its nucleus. How many neutrons it have?
Ans : Mass number = Number of protons + Number of neutrons
4 =2 + No. of neutrons Number of neutrons = 4 – 2 = 2

Question. How can an atom become stable by losing or gaining electrons?
Ans : For stability of an atom it must have either 2 or 8 electrons in the outermost orbit. So, by losing or gaining electrons it reaches to the electronic configuration of the nearest noble gas.

Question. Give important properties of cathode rays.
Ans : (i) Cathode rays travel in straight line.
(ii) Cathode rays can rotate a light wheel placed in their path.
(iii) They ionise gas through which they pass.
(iv) They are deflected by magnetic field.
(v) They can penetrate through thin metallic sheet.
(vi) Mass of cathode ray particle is too small.

Question. How does an atom become a cation?
Ans : When an atom acquires positive charge by losing one or more electrons, it is called cation.

Question. How are the canal rays different from electrons in terms of charge and mass?
Ans : Electrons are negatively charged particles, mass of which is approximately 2000 1 that of canal rays.

Question. Write any two observations which support the fact that atoms are divisible.
Ans : Discovery of electrons and protons are two observations which support the fact that atoms are divisible.

Question. If an atom contains one electron and one proton, will it carry any charge or not?
Ans : It will not carry any charge because the positive charge on the proton neutralizes the negative charge on the electron.

Question. How has atomic number improved the definition of an element?
Ans : (i) Atomic number of an element = number of proton
= number of electron
(ii) Atomic number gives the position of the element in periodic table. An element can now be defined as a substance comprising of atoms all of which have same atomic number.

Question. Can the addition of neutron to the nucleus of an atom determine the atomic mass or number?
Ans : It will increase the atomic mass of the atom.

Question. What is an anion?
Ans : When an atom gains one or more electrons, it becomes negatively charged and is known as anion.

Question. Write the distribution of electrons in carbon and sodium atoms.
Ans :
Carbon: The total number of electrons in a carbon atom is 6. The distribution of electrons in carbon atom is given by: First orbit or K-shell = 2 electrons Second orbit or L-shell = 4 electrons Or, we can write the distribution of electrons in a carbon atom as 2, 4.
Sodium: The total number of electrons in a sodium atom is 11. The distribution of electrons in sodium atom is given by:
First orbit or K-shell = 2 electrons
Second orbit or L-shell = 8 electrons
Third orbit or M-shell = 1 electron
Or, we can write distribution of electrons in a sodium atom as 2, 8, 1.

 

Question. If K and L shells of an atom are full, then what would be the total number of electrons in the atom?
Ans : The maximum capacity of K shell is 2 electrons and L shell can accommodate maximum 8 electrons in it. Therefore, there will be ten electrons in the atom.
 
VALENCY:- Noble gases have fully filled outermost shell. Due to this, they are stable and they do not react with other elements. Other elements also tend to attain stable configuration by completing the octet in their outermost orbit.
This is important to note that, the number of electrons in the outermost orbit of an element is closer to octet. An element can lose or gain electron in order to complete the octet. This tendency of losing or gaining electrons imparts valency to an element. Let us take example of hydrogen. Hydrogen can readily lose or gain an electron. So, its valency is one. Now, let us take example of Hydrochloric Acid (HCl). One atom of chlorine combines with one atom of hydrogen to form hydrochloric acid. In this case, hydrogen loses one electron and thus gets +1 charge. On the other hand, chlorine gains an electron and thus gets – 1 charge. So, valency of hydrogen and chlorine are one.
 
Valency can be defined as the combining capacity of an atom or ion.
Example :
Hydrogen molecule - Hydrogen has only one electron in its outermost orbit, thus it requires one more electrons to complete its outermost orbit. Therefore, in order to complete outermost orbit, hydrogen shares one electron with another hydrogen atom and form H2 (hydrogen molecule).
In the case of LiCl (Lithium chloride) - Lithium has three electrons in its outermost orbit and chlorine has seven electrons in its outermost orbit. Thus in order to make outermost orbit completely filled lithium loses one electrons and chlorine gains one electron. After losing one electron, lithium has two electrons in its outermost orbit and after gaining one electron, chlorine has eight electrons in its outermost orbit. And they form LiCl (Lithium chloride)
