LONG ANSWER TYPE QUESTIONS
Q.14 What will happen when ash of magnesium is dissolved in water ? Is the solution acidic or basic ? What effect does litmus show in case of oxides of metals ?
Q.15 Explain the following terms : (i) Malleability (ii) Ductility (iii) Sonorous (iv)Lustrous (v) Metalloids.
Sol.1 Sulphrous acid is formed.
SO2 + H2O = H2SO3
Sol.2 Aluminium reacts with the citric acid present in the lemon.
Sol.3 (a) Good conductors of heat and electricity. (b) Lustrous, i.e., they can shine.
Sol.4 Because copper is less reactive than zinc.
Sol.5 Because metals are good conductors of heat.
Sol.6 A brown layer gets deposited on the iron nails, which is called as the rust.
Sol.7 Iron oxide is formed and hydrogen gas is produced. The chemical reaction that takes place is :
2Fe + O2 + H2O → Fe2O3 + H2
Sol.8 When copper vessel is exposed to moist air for a long time, it acquires a dull green
coating. The green material is a mixture of copper hydroxide and copper carbonate.
The following chemical reaction takes place:
2Cu + H2O + CO2 + O2 →
Cu(OH)2 + CuCO3
Sol.9 Gold is preferred in making jewellery because gold is a lustrous metal and also
possess the property of malleability.
Sol.10 As we know that zinc is more reactive than hydrogen, so it displaces hydrogen from sulphuric acid and forms zinc sulphate. The chemical reaction that takes place during the process is given by
Zn + H2SO4 → ZnSO4 + H2
Sol.11 As magnesium is a metal and we know that when metals react with oxygen the oxide formation takes place.
2Mg + O2 → 2MgO
Sol.12 Due to their hardness, metals are preferred in making such things.
Sol.13. Zn + H2SO4 → Zn SO4 + H2
2Cu + H2O + CO2 →CuCO3+H2O
2Fe + O2 + H2O → Fe2O3 + H2SO2 + H2O
Cu + HCl →CuCl2 + H2
Sol.14 When ash of magnesium is dissolved in water then magnesium oxide is formed.
2Mg + O2 → 2MgO
The oxides of metals are basic in nature. In case of metals the red litmus will turn to
Sol.15 (i) Malleability : The property of the metals by which they can be drawn into
(ii) Ductility : The property of the metals by which they can drawn into thin wires.
(iii) Sonorous : The property of the metals
by which they produce ringing sound when struck hard.
(iv) Lustrous : The property of the metals by which they appear to be shiny.
(v) Metalloids : Those materials that posses the property of both metals and non-metals.
