(a) Copper and magnesium.
(b) Sodium sulphide and sodium carbonate.
How would you identify the gaseous products evolved.
Action of dil. H2SO4 on
(a) Copper — has no action
Magnesium — produces H2 burns with blue flame with pop-sound.
(b) Sodium sulphide → H2S
Na2S + H2SO4→ Na2S04 + H2 S→Turns lead acetate paper silvery black
Sodium carbonate → C02
Na CO + H9S04 → Na2SO4 + H20 + CO2
CO2 — Turns lime water milky.
Using a platinum wire, cone, hydrochloric acid and a Bunsen burner how would you distinguish between the three salts e. sodium chloride, potassium chloride and calcium chloride. Explain in brief the method used for the same.
Application of flame test – to identify the metal in the substance
Using given samples of temporary and permanent hard water, soft water, ordinary soap, detergent and washing soda how would you
(a) distinguish between hard and soft water
(b) distinguish between temporary hard water and permanent hard water
(c) remove temporary hardness from water without using a chemical compound
(d) remove temporary hardness and permanent hardness from water using a chemical compound
(e) prove the advantage of detergent over soap.
(a) Differentiating hard water from soft water
- Two unknown samples ‘X’ and ‘Y’ containing hard water and soft water are taken – separately in the trough or beaker.
- Ordinary soap is rubbed by the hands – inside each sample.
- One sample of water ‘X’ lathers with soap.
- The sample of water ‘Y’ does not lather with
- Sample ‘X’ which lathers is – soft water.
- Sample ‘Y’ which does not lather is – hard
(b) Differentiating temporary and permanent hard water
- Two unknown samples ‘A’ and ‘B’ containing temporary and permanent hard water are taken – separately in a trough or beaker.
- The water is boiled slowly, gases allowed to escape out, and then the water is filtered.
- Ordinary soap is rubbed by the hands – inside each filtered sample.
- One sample of water ‘A’ – lathers with soap.
- The sample of water ‘B’ – does not lather with
- The boiled and filtered sample ‘A’ which lathers is temporary hard water – whose hardness is removed by boiling. Sample ‘B’ is permanent hard water – whose hardness cannot be removed by boiling.
(c) Remove temporary hardness from water without using chemical compound. Temporary hardness can be removed by heating the hard water.
Temporary hard water softened by heating
- Temporary hard water is taken in a beaker and heated
- After the gases escape out, the water is filtered through a filter paper.
- Ordinary soap is rubbed – inside the filtered solution.
- The boiled and filtered sample of – temporary hard water lathers readily with soap.
- Temporary hard water can be – softened by heating.
(d) To remove temporary hardness and permanent hardness using a chemical compound. Chemical compound used is washing soda which removes both kind of hardness.
Temporary and permanent hard water softened by addition of washing soda
- Temporary and permanent hard water are taken separately in beakers and washing soda is added to each sample of water. The above solutions are filtered – to remove the precipitate formed.
- Ordinary soap is rubbed – inside the filtered solution.
- The filtered sample of temporary and permanent hard water lathers – readily with ordinary soap.
- Temporary hard water and Permanent hard water can be – softened by using washing soda.
(e) To prove the advantage of detergent over soap.
Advantage of using detergents over soap
- A sample of hard water ‘X’ is taken and ordinary soap is rubbed water.
- Another sample of hard water ‘Y’ is taken and detergent is rubbed water.
[Detergents are sodium salts of sulphonic acid and do not form scum.] Observation
- Lather forms in ‘Y’ but not in ‘X’.
- Detergents from lather even with hard water, while ordinary soap is wasted due to formation of scum.
State the meaning of the term ‘water pollution’. State how you would find out, the different sources of pollution of water bodies in the locality.
Water pollution — It is an undesirable change in the chemical, physical & biological conditions of water due to the presence of foreign substances in water. It leads to degrade the quality of water & makes it unsuitable for its designated use.
The main sources of pollution of water bodies in the locality are —
- Household detergents
- Sewage waste
SOURCES OF WATER POLLUTION IN THE LOCALITY
- HOUSEHOLD DETERGENTS: They are household chemical cleaning organic compounds used for laundering & dish washing. They contain phosphates mainly sodium triphosphate. Phosphates are a major source of water pollution. Nutrients are added to the water in the form of nitrogen, carbon & phosphorus – generally from sewage.
- DOMESTIC SEWAGE: It is waste water generated from household activities, (sewage also includes liquid waste industry and commerce)
Domestic sewage water contains Organic materials & inorganic materials such as phosphates & nitrates.
Organic from food & vegetables & inorganic from soaps & detergents.
State in brief, the preventive steps to control the pollution of water bodies in the locality.
PREVENTIVE STEPS TO – Control pollution of water bodies in the locality
- Collection & Disposal of Domestic Sewage: A typical waste water system for sewage i.e. waste water generated from household activity consists of a network of waste water pipes.Sewer Lateral Pipe is the waste water pipe which collects sewage from household.
Server Main Pipe is the larger pipe on the main street which connects from sewer lateral pipe.
The waste water from sewer main pipe is then led to the Water treatment plant.
- Water treatment plant: The waste water from sewer main pipe is then led to the water treatment plant.
It consists of –
Screen — Large waste materials such as leaves, rocks, twigs, etc. are easily removed.
Coagulation – Coagulated suspended impurities are removed by adding coagulants [e.g. alum], which settle down and are removed before filtration of ‘water. Sedimentation – Solid suspended particles settle down in the sedimentation tank. Filtration – Remaining pollutants are removed by passing water through sand & gravel filters.
Disinfection – Remaining pathogens are killed by liquid chlorine [ozone or bleaching powder]
