Exercise 2.2

Question 1.
Differentiate between homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures with examples.

Solution: Refer pdf.

Question 2.

Question 3.
To make a saturated solution, 36 g of sodium chloride is dissolved in 100 g of water at 293 K. Find its concentration at this temperature.

Solution: Refer pdf.

Exercise 2.3
Question 1.
How will you separate a mixture containing kerosene and petrol (difference in their boiling points is more than 25ºC), which are miscible with each other?

As their boiling points are different, they can be separated by simple distillation.

Question 2.
Name the technique to separate
(i) Butter from curd, (ii) salt from sea-water, (iii) camphor from salt.

(i) Butter from curd- centrifugation
(ii) Salt from sea-water – evaporation
(iii) Camphor from salt – sublimation

Question 3:
What type of mixtures are separated by the technique of crystallisation?

The crystallisation method is used to purify solids. It separates a pure solid in the form of its crystals from a solution.

Exercise 2.4

Question 1.
Classify the following as chemical or physical changes:
 Cutting of trees,
 Melting of butter in a pan,
 Rusting of almirah,
 Boiling of water to form steam,
 Passing of electric current, through water and the water breaking down
into hydrogen and oxygen gases,
 Dissolving common salt in water,
 Making a fruit salad with raw fruits, and
 Burning of paper and wood.

 Cutting of trees, – Physical change
 Melting of butter in a pan, – Physical change
 Rusting of almirah – Chemical change
 Boiling of water to form steam, – Physical change
 Passing of electric current, through water and the water breaking down into hydrogen and oxygen gases, – Chemical change
 Dissolving common salt in water, – – Physical change
 Making a fruit salad with raw fruits, – – Physical change
 Burning of paper and wood – Chemical change

Question 2.
Try segregating the things around you as pure substances or mixtures.

Pure substances: Sugar, water, salt
Mixture: Food, soil, wood

Question 1.
Which separation techniques will you apply for the separation of the following?
(a) Sodium chloride from its solution in water.
(b) Ammonium chloride from a mixture containing sodium chloride and
ammonium chloride.
(c) Small pieces of metal in the engine oil of a car.
(d) Different pigments from an extract of flower petals.
(e) Butter from curd.
(f) Oil from water.
(g) Tea leaves from tea.
(h) Iron pins from sand.
(i) Wheat grains from husk.
(j) Fine mud particles suspended in water.

(a) Evaporation
(b) Sublimation
(c) Filtration
(d) Chromatography
(e) Centrifugation
(f) Using separating funnel
(g) Filtration
(h) Magnetic separation
(i) Winnowing
(j) Filtration

Question 2.
Write the steps you would use for making tea. Use the words solution, solvent, solute, dissolve, soluble, insoluble, filtrate and residue.

Step 1: Water is taken as a solvent and boiled in a beaker.
Step 2: Milk and tea are added into it as solutes and a solution is formed.
Step 3: It is filtered through a sieve. The insoluble part remains as the residue.
Step 4: Sugar is added to the filtrate and being soluble, it dissolves into it.
Serve the tea hot.

Question 3.
Pragya tested the solubility of three different substances at different
temperatures and collected the data as given below (results are given in the
following table, as grams of substance dissolved in 100 grams of water to form a
saturated solution).
Given solubility of different salts at given temperatures.
