Very Short Answers Type Questions

Question. A teacher provided acetic acid, water, lemon juice, aqueous solution of sodium hydrogen carbonate and sodium hydroxide to students in the school laboratory to determine the pH values of these substances using pH papers. One of the students reported the pH values of the given substances as 3, 12, 4, 8 and 14 respectively. Which one of these values is not correct ? Write its correct value stating the reason.
Answer : The value of pH for water is not correct. The correct value of pH of water is 7 because it has almost equal concentration of H+ and OH– due to which it is neutral.

Question. What is observed when a pinch of sodium hydrogen carbonate is added to 2 ml of acetic acid taken in a test tube ? Write chemical equation for the reaction involved in this case.
Answer : CO2 gas is evolved with brisk effervescence when sodium hydrogen carbonate is added to acetic acid.
NaHCO3       +        CH3COOH CH3COONa   + H2O + CO2
Sodium hydrogen    Acetic acid     Sodium
carobonate acetate

Question.Blue litmus solution is added to two test tubes A and B containing dilute HCl and NaOH solution respectively. In which test tube a colour change will be observed ? State the colour change and give its reason. 
Answer : Test tube A will show colour change because acids turn blue litmus to red. So the final colour of test tube would be red.

Question. What is observed when 2 ml of dilute hydrochloric acid is added to 1 g of sodium carbonate taken in a clean and dry test tube ? Write chemical equation for the reaction involved.
Answer : A brisk effervescence would be observed if HCl is
added to Na2CO3 due to the evolution of CO2 gas.
Na2 CO3 + HCl → NaCl + H2O + CO2.

Question. A gas is liberated immediately with a brisk effervescence, when you add acetic acid to sodium hydrogen carbonate powder in a test tube. Name the gas and describe the test that confirms the identity of the gas. 
Answer :
Gas evolved is CO2. It is tested by passing CO2 in lime water which turns milky due to formation of insoluble CaCO3.
Ca(OH)2 + CO2 → CaCO3↓ + H2O

Question. Name one animal and one plant whose stings contain formic acid (or methanoic acid).

Question. If someone is suffering from the problem of acidity after overeating, which of the following would you suggest as remedy ? Lemon juice, Vinegar, Baking soda solution. Give reason for your choice. 
Answer : Baking soda solution. The solution being basic in nature, it neutralises excess acid in the stomach.

Question.How is the neutralisation of a carbonate with an acid different from the neutralisation of an oxide or a hydroxide ? 
Answer : Neutralisation of a carbonate with an acid produces carbon dioxide gas but not with an oxide or hydroxide.

Question. Why do acids not show acidic behaviour in the absence of water ?
Answer : Acids do not show acidic behaviour in the absence of water because the dissociation of hydrogen ions from an acid occurs in the presence of water only. It is the hydrogen ions that are responsible for the acidic behaviour.

(c) Copper oxide is basic in nature.

Question. A substance X which is used as an antacid reacts with dilute hydrochloric acid to produce a gas Y which is used in one type of fire-extinguisher. Name the substance X and gas Y. Write a balanced equation for the chemical reaction which takes place.
Answer : Substance X is sodium hydrogen carbonate; gas Y is
carbon dioxide.
NaHCO3 + HCl → NaCl + CO2 + H2O

Question. (a) Why is it wrong to treat a bee sting with vinegar ?
(b) Why is it wrong to treat a wasp sting with baking soda solution ?
Answer :
(a) Bee injects acid into the skin. Vinegar is acetic acid so it can’t be used to treat bee sting.
(b) Since baking soda is basic in nature so it can’t be used to treat wasp sting because wasp injects alkaline liquid into the skin.

Answer :
(a) Sulphate, chloride or hydrogen carbonate of calcium or magnesium can be added to tap water to make it hard.
(b) By adding equal amount of soap to water taken in two test tubes, shaking vigorously and comparing the length of lather or foam formed in each test tube. The cleaning capacity of soap is compared.

Question. Complete and balance the following chemical equations : 
(i) NaOH(aq) + Zn(s) →
(ii) CaCO3(s) + H2O(l) + CO2(g) →
(iii) HCl(aq) + H2O(l) →
Answer :
(i) 2NaOH + Zn    550º C→    Na2ZnO2 + H2
(ii) Calcium carbonate will react with water that is saturated with carbon dioxide to form the soluble calcium bicarbonate.
CaCO3(s) + CO2 (g) + H2O (l) → Ca (HCO3)2(aq)
(iii) HCl + H2O → H3O+ + Cl–

Question. (a) While diluting an acid, why is it recommended that the acid should be added to water and not water to the acid ?
(b) Dry hydrogen chloride gas does not change the colour of dry litmus paper why ? 
Answer :
(a) The process of mixing the concentrated acid with water is highly exothermic. So, when a concentrated acid is added to water then heat is easily absorbed by the large amount of water. Thus it is recommended to add acid to water and not water to the acid.
(b) Dry hydrogen chloried does not contain any hydrogen ions in it, so it does not show acidic behaviour and thus does not change the colour of dry litmus paper.

Question. How is sodium hydroxide manufactured in industries? Name the process. In this process a gas X is formed as by-product. This gas reacts with lime water to give a compound Y, which is used as a bleaching agent in the chemical industry. Identify X and Y and write the chemical equation of the reaction involved.
Answer : Sodium hydroxide is manufactured by the electrolysis of concentrated aqueous solution of sodium chloride.
2NaCl(aq.)   +   2H2O(l)     →

Sodium chloride   Water
2NaOH(aq.)    +    Cl2(g)      +   H2(g)
Sodium hydroxide   Chloride     Hydrogen
(Caustic Soda)

The process of manufacture of sodium hydroxide by electrolysis process is called chlor-alkali process.
Gas X is chlorine gas and compound Y is calcium oxychloride (Bleaching powder)
Cl2(g)    +    Ca(OH) →  CaOCl2 + H2O
Chlorine    Lime water     Calcium
gas (X)                       oxychloride (Y)

Question. What would a student report nearly after 30 minutes of placing duly cleaned strips of aluminium, copper, iron and zinc in freshly prepared iron sulphate solution taken in four beakers ?

No change takes place when copper strip is dipped in iron sulphate solution.
No change will be observed when iron strips are dipped in iron sulphate solution.
The colour of the solution changes from green to colourless when zinc is added to iron sulphate solution.
