The physical state of matter which can be easily compressed –

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 14

In gases, the atoms are much more spread out than in solids or liquids, and the atoms collide randomly with one another. A gas will fill any container, but if the container is not sealed, the gas will escape. Gas can be compressed much more easily than a liquid or solid.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 15

Name the process by which a drop of ink spreads in a beaker of water –

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 15

A drop of ink spreads in a beaker of water through diffusion. This is because the particles in liquids can move around each other, which means that eventually they are evenly mixed. Diffusion is the process of a substance spreading out to evenly fill its container or environment. In a solution, a concentrated solute diffuses to spread evenly in its solvent. concentration to low concentration. 

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 16

The temperature at which a solid changes into liquid at atmospheric pressure is called –

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 16

When a solid is heated, the particles are given more energy and start to vibrate faster. At a certain temperature, the particles vibrate so much that their ordered structure breaks down. At this point the solid melts into liquid. The temperature at which this change from solid to liquid happens is called the melting point. Each solid has a set melting point at normal air pressure. At lower air pressure, such as up a mountain, the melting point lowers.

Plasma is the.......... state of matter 

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 19

A plasma is a hot ionized gas consisting of approximately equal numbers of positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons. The characteristics of plasmas are significantly different from those of ordinary neutral gases so that plasmas are considered a distinct "fourth state of matter."

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 20

The process for the change of a solid directly into its vapour is called 

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 20

Sublimation is the process through which the solid substance changes directly into vapours or gaseous state without passing through liquid state. Dry ice is a common example of this process.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 21

Under which of the following conditions we can boil water at room temperature?

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 21

The boiling point of a liquid depends on both temperature and pressure. As pressure increases, so does the boiling temperature. Pressure cookers are used in cooking to raise the temperature at which liquids within will boil. Conversely, the lower atmospheric pressure on a mountain top makes it harder to get boiling water hot enough for good tea or coffee. 

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 22

Gases have highest rate of diffusion among all the three states of matter.

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 22

Diffusion is the property of matter which is based on the motion of its particles. Diffusion occurs in gases, liquids and solids. Diffusion is fastest in gases and slowest in solids. The rate of diffusion increases on increasing the temperature of the diffusing substance.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 23

Evaporation causes heating

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 23

Evaporation causes cooling because the process requires heat energy. The energy is taken away by the molecules when they convert from liquid into gas, and this causes cooling on the original surface.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 24

Camphor changes to gaseous state without changing into liquid.

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 24

It's true because camphor is sublime and it changes directly into gas without passing through the state of liquid. The process in which solid directly changes into gas without passing through the state of liquid is called sublimation.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 25

Water has boiling point equal to 100°C.

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 25

Boiling Point: The temperature at which the liquid boils and changes into gaseous state at the atmospheric pressure is called boiling point. For example, water boils at 100°C to form water vapour (at 76 cm pressure).

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 26

Evaporation is a bulk phenomenon

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 26

It is not bulk phenomenon because in this process liquid is not evapourated at same time .It takes time to evapourate whole liquid. Bulk means process that envolve molecules of both surface and inside part.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 27

Intermolecular forces are maximum in solids and minimum in gases.

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 27

Intermolecular force refers to the force that exists between two or more molecules. 

Intermolecular force of attraction is maximum in solids. 

This is because molecules in solid remain very close to each other which allot a definite shape to the objects that are solid. 

It is lesser in liquids and least in the gases.

HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 28

Condensing is opposite to evaporating and freezing is opposite to melting.

Detailed Solution for HOTS Questions: Matter in our Surroundings - Question 28

Evapouration is the process by which water turns to water vapour and condensation from vapours to water. So evapouration is opposite of condensation freezing is the process by which water turns to ice and melting is ice to water.so freezing is opposite of melting as both of them are true, Option A is correct!
