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

Question The Kelvin scale temperature is 0 K. What is the corresponding Celsius scale temperature?
Ans : –273°C

Question. How is the high compressibility property of gas useful to us?
Ans : The gases have high compressibility. This property is used in the following situation :
(i) LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a fuel which is made up of petroleum gas. On compressing this petroleum gas it forms liquid.
(ii) Oxygen cylinders in the hospitals have compressed gas filled in it.
(iii) CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) is a natural gas i.e. methane, which is compressed and used as a fuel in vehicles and at home.

Question With the help of an example, explain how diffusion of gases in water is essential?
Ans : The gases from the atmosphere diffuse and dissolve in water. Diffused gases like oxygen and carbon dioxide in water are essential for the survival of aquatic
animals and plants. Animals breathe in this oxygen dissolved in water for their survival and plants can use carbon dioxide dissolved in water for photosynthesis.

Question Is it true to say that fluorescent tube contains plasma? Explain
Ans : It is right to say that fluorescent tube contains plasma. As fluorescent tube has helium or some other rare gas. The particles of the gas get ionized in the presence of high voltage applied. These charged particles are called plasma which glows.

Question A rubber band is a solid, but it can change its shape. Why?
Ans : A rubber band changes shape under force and regains the shape when the force is removed, this is due to less intermolecular force of attraction between the particles.

Question. We can get the smell of perfume sitting several metres away, why?
Ans :
 This is because perfumes diffuse very fast and can reach to people sitting several metres away.

Question When salt or sugar is poured into different kinds of vessels, why do they take the shape of vessel as they are solid?
Ans : Salt or sugar takes the shape of containing vessel, but does not change its individual shape. For example : Sugar crystal is cubical and they remain cubical in any vessel.

Question. What is dry ice?
Ans : Solid carbon dioxide obtained by cooling and applying pressure on carbon dioxide gas. It does not melt so it is called dry ice.
