Physical changes are those changes in which no new substances are formed. The substances do not change their identity and they can be easily returned to their original form by some physical processes, e.g., melting of ice, glowing of an electric bulb, breaking of glass tumbler, etc.
On the other hand, chemical changes are those changes in which new substances are formed. The substances involved change their identity and they get converted into entirely new substances, which can not be returned to their original form, e.g., burning of paper, rusting of iron, burning of magnesium wire, etc.

Short Answer Type Questions
Suggest separation technique(s) one would need to employ to separate the following mixtures.
(a) Mercury and water
(b) Potassium chloride and ammonium chloride
(c) Common salt, water and sand
(d) Kerosene oil, water and salt
(a) Mercury and water are separated by decantation by using separating funnel as the separation of
two immiscible liquids by a separating funnel depends on the difference in their densities.
Mercury is heavier than water therefore, forms the lower layer and separated from water.
(b) Potassium chloride and ammonium chloride are separated by sublimation method
because ammonium chloride being a sublimate, sublimes leaving behind the potassium chloride.
Sublimation is the process in which a solid changes directly into vapours on heating and
vapours change into solid on cooling without going in liquid state.
(c) Common salt, water and sand are separated by
(i) Decantation (or filtration) process is used to separate sand from common salt solution in
water because common salt is soluble in water whereas sand is insoluble in water. Therefore,
by filtration, sand will be separated as insoluble substance as residue and filtrate will be
common salt solution in water.
(ii) Evaporation process is used to separate common salt from water. Water evaporates and common salt remains as residue.
(d) (i) Decantation by using separating funnel is used to separate kerosene oil from salt solution in
water as they form separate layers (salt is soluble in water).(Refer to ans. 10(a)).
(ii) Evaporation is used to separate salt from water.(Also, refer to Q. 10 (c))
Which of the tubes in Figure (a) and (b) will be more effective as a condenser in the distillation apparatus?
Figure (a) will be more effective condenser in the distillation apparatus because beads
present will provide more surface area for cooling of the vapours passing through it.
Salt can be recovered from its solution by evaporation. Suggest some other technique for the same?
Salt can be recovered from its solution by ‘crystallisation‘.
Crystallisation’ is a better technique than ‘evaporation1 because it removes soluble impurities also, which do not get removed in the process of evaporation.
The ‘sea-water’ can be classified as a homogeneous as well as heterogeneous mixture. Comment.
‘Sea-water’ is called homogeneous as it contains dissolved salts in it. It may be called heterogeneous as it contains various insoluble components too as sand, microbes, shells made of calcium carbonate and so many other things.
While diluting a solution of salt in water, a student by mistake added acetone (boiling point 56°C). What technique can be employed to get back the acetone? Justify your choice.
Acetone is soluble in water, a homogeneous mixture is obtained and hence separation by separating funnel cannot be used. Acetone can be get back by simple distillation because the difference in the boiling points of acetone and water is more than 25°C.
Boiling point of acetone — 56°C
Boiling point of water — 100°C
In distillation flask, acetone will boil at 56°C and change into vapours and can be collected in flask after condensation.
What would you observe when
(a) a saturated solution of potassium chloride prepared at 60°C is allowed to cool at
(b) an aqueous sugar solution is heated to dryness?
(c) a mixture of iron filings and sulphur powder is heated strongly?
(a) When a saturated solution of potassium chloride prepared at 60°C is allowed to cool at room
temperature, crystals of potassium chloride will be formed.
(b) Initially, sugar will obtained as water will get evaporated. But on dry heating sugar gets charred and
it turns black.
(c) The black coloured compound, iron sulphide is formed when a mixture of iron filings and sulphur
powder is heated strongly.
Explain why particles of a colloidal solution do not settle down when left undisturbed, while in the case of a suspension they do?
The colloidal particles are smaller and not heavy. They always remain in a state of zig-zag motion, called Brownian movement, which counters the force of gravity acting on colloidal particles and hence, helps in providing stability to colloidal sols by not allowing them to settle down. Apart from this, colloidal particles are charged and repel each other.
This fact also do not allow the particles of colloidal solution to settle down. Whereas particles of suspension are larger, heavy and have less movement, thus settle down due to gravity.
Smoke and fog both are aerosols. In what way are they different?
In smoke and fog, dispersion medium is same, i.e., air but they differ in dispersed phase. In smoke, solid carbon particles are dispersed in air while in fog, liquid water particles are dispersed in air.
Classify the following as physical or chemical properties.
(a) The composition of a sample of steel is : 98% iron, 1.5% carbon and 0.5% other elements.
(b) Zinc dissolves in hydrochloric acid with the evolution of hydrogen gas.
(c) Metallic sodium is soft enough to be cut with a knife.
(d) Most metal oxides form alkalis on interacting with water.
(a) It is a physical property as no new compound is formed because steel is an alloy and alloy is a
homogeneous mixture of two or more metals or of metallic elements with non-metallic elements.
(b) It is chemical property because chemical reaction takes place between zinc and hydrochloric acid
with the evolution of hydrogen gas and a compound zinc chloride is formed.
Zn(s)+ 2HCI (dil)→ ZnCI2(aq) + H2(g)
(c) It is physical property because cutting with knife does not form new substance.
(d) It is chemical property as new compound is being formed by the reaction of metal oxide and water.
M20 (s) + H20 (Z) → 2MOH (aq)
Metal oxide Water Metal hydroxide
The teacher instructed three students ‘A’, ‘B’ and V respectively to prepare a 50% (mass by volume) solution of sodium hydroxide (NaOH). ‘A’ dissolved 50g of NaOH in 100 mL of water. ‘B’ dissolved 50g of NaOH in lOOg of water while V dissolved 50g of NaOH in water to make 100 mL of solution. Which one of them has made the desired solution and why?
In the given question, student ‘C’ has made it correctly because 50% (mass by volume)
means 50 g of solute for every 100 mL of solution and not in 100 mL of solvent.
Student A’ dissolved 50 g of NaOH in 100 mL of water (solvent) which is incorrect. Student ‘B’ dissolved 50 g of NaOH in 100 g of water (solvent), which is incorrect.
Name the process associated with the following
(a) Dry ice is kept at room temperature and at one atmospheric pressure.
(b) A drop of ink placed on the surface of water contained in a glass spreads throughout the water.
(c) A potassium permanganate crystal is in a beaker and water is poured into the beaker with stirring.
(d) A acetone bottle is left open and the bottle becomes empty.
(e) Milk is churned to separate cream from it.
(f) Settling of sand when a mixture of sand and water is left undisturbed for some time.
(g) Fine beam of light entering through a small hole in a dark room. Illuminates the particles in its paths.
(a) The process is sublimation because when dry ice (solid C02) is kept at room temperature at one
atmospheric pressure, it sublimes leaving no residue.
(b) This process is diffusion because in diffusion, mixing of one substance (ink) into another substance
(water) goes on until a uniform mixture is formed.
(c) This process is dissolution/diffusion as potassium permanganate crystal is dissolved in water.
(d) This process is evaporation as acetone evaporates when kept open in the bottle.
(e) This process is centrifugation. Milk is put in a closed container in big centrifuge machine. When
machine is switched on, milk is rotated at a very high speed.
Due to this, milk separates into ‘cream’ and ‘skimmed milk’. The cream being lighter, floats over the
skimmed milk and then can be removed.
(f) This process is sedimentation as sand does not dissolve completely in water and forms suspension
and settles down at the bottom when left undisturbed for some time.
(g) This shows Tyndall effect, i.e., scattering of light by colloidal solution or by particles in a fine
suspension. Dust particles are suspended in air which scatter the light coming from small hole.
You are given two samples of water labelled as ‘A’and ‘B’. Sample A’boils at 100°C and sample ‘B’ boils at 102°C.Which sample of water will not freeze at 0°C? Comment.
Sample ‘6’ will not freeze at 0°C as, it is impure water. It is because sample ‘B’ boils at 102°C while the boiling point of pure water is 100°C. It means this sample contains impurities. Only pure substance has sharp melting point.
What are the favourable qualities given to gold when it is alloyed with copper or silver for the purpose of making ornaments?
Gold is soft metal and can easily change its shape with a little force. Therefore, it is not suitable for making ornaments. But when it is alloyed with copper or silver, the gold becomes harder and stronger and its brittleness decreases. Thus, it becomes suitable for making ornaments.

Long Answer Type Questions
Fractional distillation is suitable for separation of miscible liquids with a boiling point difference of about 25 K or less. What part of fractional distillation apparatus makes it efficient and possess an advantage over a simple distillation process. Explain using a diagram.
Fractionating column is the most important part of the fractional distillation apparatus. This column is provided with some glass beads in it.
It helps to obstruct the upward movement of the vapours of the two liquids. The vapours of high boiling liquid gets condensed earlier (at lower level). The energy (latent heat) released helps to take the vapours of low boiling liquid to a height in the fractionating column.
The advantages are as given below
(i) This method can separate the liquids with a boiling point difference about or less than 25 K.
(ii) During the process, both evaporation and condensation take place simultaneously.
(iii) A mixture (like petroleum) can also be separated by fractional distillation process which contains several components.
(a) Under which category of mixtures will you classify alloys and why?
(b) A solution is always a liquid. Comment.
(c) Can a solution be heterogeneous?
(a) Alloys are homogeneous mixtures of metals, because
(i) it shows the properties of its constituents, and
(ii) it has variable composition., e.g., brass is considered a mixture, because it shows the properties of its constituents, copper and zinc, and it has a variable composition (amount of Zn in brass can vary from 20 to 35 per cent).
(b) A solution is generally a liquid, not always. It may involve solids and gases also, e.g., alloys are solution of solid in solid. Air is solution of gases in gases.
(c) Colloidal solutions are heterogeneous in nature, though they appear to be homogeneous.
Iron filings and sulphur were mixed together and divided into two parts, ‘A’ and ‘8’. Part ‘A’ was heated strongly while part ‘S’ was not heated. Dilute hydrochloric acid was added to both the parts and evolution of gas was seen in both the cases. How will you identify the gases evolved?
As part ‘A’ is heated, a compound FeS is formed by the reaction between iron filings and sulphur. When dilute HCI is added to part A, FeS will react with dil HC1 to form FI2S gas which has smell of rotten eggs and will turn lead acetate paper black.
Fe (s) + S(s) → FeS(s)
FeS(s) +2HCI(dil.) → FeCI2(ag) + H2S(g)
(CHjCOO)2Pb(ag) + H2S(g) → PbS(s) + 2CH3COOH
Lead acetate Black ppt Acetic acid
As part ‘S’ is not heated, so 8 is a mixture of iron filings and sulphur powder. When dil, HCI is added to it, iron filings react with dill. HCI to form H2(g) which burns with a ‘pop’ sound if burning match stick is brought near it.
Fe (s)+ 2HCI (dil.)——- >FeCI2(ag) + H2(g)

A group of students took an old shoe box and covered it with a black paper from all sides. They fixed a source of light (a torch) at one end of the box by making a hole in it and made another hole on the other side to view the light. They placed a milk sample contained in a beaker/tumbler in the box as shown in the Figure. They were amazed to see that milk taken in the tumbler was illuminated. They tried the same activity by taking a salt solution but found that light simply passed through it?
(a) Explain why the milk sample was illuminated? Name the phenomenon involved.
(b) Same results were not observed with a salt solution. Explain.
(c) Can you suggest two more solutions which would show the same effect as shown by the milk solution?
(a) The milk sample was illuminated because milk is a colloidal solution and its particles are big enough to scatter the light, hence, they scatter the light passing through it. The phenomenon observed is called “Tyndall effect”.
(b) As salt solution is a true solution i.e., solute particle size is too small to scatter the light, hence, it does
not show “Tyndall effect”.
(c) Examples of colloid are gold sol, arsenius sulphide (As2S3) sol., Blood etc.
