Question. What is meant by `rusting of iron’?

Answer. when an iron object is left in damp air (moisture) for a considered amount of time, it gets covered with a reddish-brown flaky substance. This is called rusting of iron.

Question. What will be the change in the colour of copper sulphate solution when magnesium is added to it? Write a balanced chemical equation for the same.

Answer.-a. The magnesium would replace the copper from copper sulphate solution (blue colour) and form magnesium sulphate, which is colourless solution and a fine copper powder precipitate would form.
CuSo4 + Mg ----------------> MgSo4 + Cu
Copper magnesium magnesium sulphate copper (reddish
Sulphate (blue colour) (colourless solution) brown)

Question. Give reasons for the following:

a. Electric wires are made of copper.
Answer. Electric wires are made of copper because it conducts electricity with high flexibility and very little resistance.

b Gold and silver are used for making jewellery.
Answer. Metals such as gold and silver are quite unreactive, due to this property they are used for making jewellery.

C Graphite is used for making electrodes in electric cells.
Answer. Graphite is used for making electrodes in electric cells because Graphite is a good conductor of electricity and it is cheaper.
