QUESTION: 1

What is the physical state of water at 100oC?

Solution:

The boiling point of pure water is 100oC or 373 K (100oC = 273 + 100 = 373 K). Boiling is a bulk phenomenon. At this temperature, particles from the bulk of the liquid gain enough energy to change into the vapour state. Therefore, the physical state of water at 100oC is water vapour (gaseous state of matter).

The particles of gases are away from each other. So, gas has the minimum inter-particle force of attraction.Solids have maximum force of attraction

QUESTION: 14

Pressure on the surface of a gas is increased. What will happen to the inter-particle forces?

Solution:

When the pressure on the surface of a gas is increased. The particles of gases comes closer that increase the inter-particle force of attraction.

QUESTION: 15

A desert cooler given comfort due to cooling caused by evaporation of water. Under which one of the following conditions it works more effectively?

Solution:

Desert cooler causes cooling effect due to evaporation of water as evaporation causes cooling effect. A desert cooler works more effectively when weather is hot and dry.

QUESTION: 16

The two major gases present in air are

Solution:

Air is a mixture of gases. Two main constituents of air is  Nitrogen (78%) and Oxygen (21%). Other gases include carbon dioxide, helium, water vapour etc.

QUESTION: 17

Identify the incorrect statement

Solution:

Ether and Acetone is most volatile. Alcohol is moderately volatile and water is least volatile. So, the statement, Acetone is least volatile is incorrect statement.
