Short / Long Answer Type Questions

Question. (i) State the principle of the process of centrifugation.
(ii) List any three applications of centrifugation.
Answer :
 (i) Centrifugation is the process of separating suspended particles from a liquid like colloids by churning the liquid at a high speed. The principle is that denser particles are forced to the bottom and lighter stay at the top when spun rapidly.
(ii) Applications of centrifugation :
(a) Used in dairies and homes to separate cream from milk or butter from cream.
(b) Used in washing machines to squeeze out water from clothes.
(c) Used in laboratories to separate colloidal particles from their solutions.
(d) Used in diagnostic labs for blood and urine test.

Question. Why is water considered as compound?
Answer :  Water is considered as compound because :
(i) Water is composed of two elements : hydrogen and oxygen.
(ii) The ratio of hydrogen and oxygen by mass in any sample of pure water is the same.
(iii) The properties of water are different from its constituent elements : hydrogen and oxygen.
(iv) Water can be decomposed by chemical means only

Question. Write characteristics of compounds.
Answer : Characteristics of compounds :
(i) Compounds are the substances formed by chemical combination of two or more elements.
(ii) The constituent elements are present in a fixed ratio.
(iii) A chemical reaction takes place during the  formation of a compound.
(iv) Properties of a compound are different to those of its elements.
(v) Constituent elements cannot be separated by physical processes.

Question : Name the technique to separate
(i) Butter from curd
(ii) Salt from sea water
(iii) Camphor from salt
Answer :
(i) By using centrifugation method, butter can be separated from curd.
(ii) By using evaporation method, salt from sea water can be separated .
Water vaporises on evaporation leaving behind the salt.
(iii) Camphor from salt can be separated by sublimation method. On subliming camphor will be converted into vapour leaving behind the salt.

Question : Classify the following as chemical or physical changes
(a) Cutting of trees,
(b) Melting of butter in a pan,
(c) Rusting of almirah,
(d) Boiling of water to form steam,
(e) Passing of electric current, through water and the water breaking down into hydrogen and oxygen gases,
(f) Dissolving common salt in water,
(g) Making a fruit salad with raw fruits, and
(h) Burning of paper and wood
Answer :
Physical Change :
Cutting of trees
Melting of butter in a pan
Boiling of water to form steam
Dissolving common salt in water
Making a fruit salad with raw fruits
Chemical Change :
Rusting of almirah.
Passing of electric current, through water and the water breaking down into hydrogen and oxygen gases.
Burning of paper and wood.

Question : Write the steps you would use for making tea. Use the words solution, solvent,solute, dissolve, soluble, insoluble, filtrate and residue.
Answer :
Method of preparation of tea
(i) Take some water (solvent) in a pan and heat it.
(ii) Add some sugar (solute) and boil to dissolve the sugar completely the obtained homogeneous mixture is called solution.
(iii) Add tea leaves (or tea) in the solution and boil the mixture.
(iv) Now add milk and boil again.
(v) Filter the mixture through the tea stainer and collect the filtrate or soluble substances, i.e., tea in a cup. The insoluble tea leaves left behind as residue in the 8 trainer.

Question : Explain the following giving examples.
(a) Saturated solution
(b) Pure substance
(c) Colloid
(d) Suspension
Answer :
(a) Saturated solution: A solution in which no more amount of solute can be dissolved at a particular temperature is called saturated solution.
Example: when sugar is dissolved repeatedly in a given amount of water, a condition is reached at which further dissolution of sugar is not possible in that amount of water at room temperature.
(b) Pure substance: A substance made up of single type of particles (atoms and/or molecules) is called pure substance. All elements and compounds are said to be pure, Example: water, sugar etc.
(c) Colloid:A heterogeneous mixture in which the solute particle size is too small to be seen with the naked eye, but is big enough to scatter light is known as Colloid. There are two phases in colloidal solution Dispersed phase: solute particles are said to be dispersed phase Dispersion medium: the medium in which solute particles are spread is called the dispersion medium.
Example: Milk, clouds etc., are the example of colloid.
(d) Suspension: A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture in which the solute particles do not dissolve but remain suspended throughout the bulk of the medium. Particles of suspension are visible to the naked eye.
Example: Mixture of sand, Water and Muddy water etc.

Question : Classify the following into elements, compounds and mixtures.
(a) Sodium
(b) Soil
(c) Sugar solution
(d) Silver
(e) Calcium carbonate
(f) Tin
(g) Silicon
(h) Coal
(i) Air
(j) Soap
(k) Methane
(l) Carbon dioxide
(m) Blood
Answer : Elements : Sodium, silver, tin and silicon
Compounds : Calcium carbonate, methane, and carbon dioxide Mixtures : Soil, sugar solution, coal, air, soap and blood.
