What are the characteristics of metals?

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Sorting Materials Into Groups - Question 3

1.Metals are Malleable- This means that metal can be beaten into thin sheets with hammer(without breaking).Gold and siver are best malleable metals.Aluminium and copper are highly malleable metals. All the metals can be beaten with hammer to form thin sheets called foils.Ex-Silver is converted into thin sheets to form silver foils which is used to decorating sweets.

2.Metals are ductile- This means that metals can be drawn into thin wires.Gold and silver are best ductile metals.Ex-100 milligrams of silver can be drawn into thin wire about 200 m.Copper and aluminium are also very ductile.

3.Metals are good conductor of heat and electricity-Metals allow heat and electricity to pass through them very easily.Metals are good conductor of heat .They has the highly thermal conductivity.Copper and aluminium are best among them.that’s why cooking utensils are made up of copper and aluminium.

Metals are good conductor of electricity .Copper and aluminium are best among them .That’s why electric wire is made up of copper and aluminium.

4.Metals are lustrous-Gold,silver are shiny metals and they can be polished. The shiny appearance makes them useful in making jewellery

5.Metals are sonorous-This means that metals make a ringing sound when we strike them.Due to this property metals are used for making bells.

6.Metals are solid at room temperature-All the metals are solid at room temperature(except mercury).

Olympiad Test: Sorting Materials Into Groups - Question 15

Four rods of equal length and thickness but of different materials are coated with wax in the same manner. They are fixed to a trough containing hot water. The given diagram illustrates what happens to the wax on each rod after five minutes.

What can you conclude from the given diagram?
(i) The aluminium rod conducts heat better than the brass rod.
(ii) The aluminium rod conducts heat better than the copper rod.
(iii) The glass rod conducts heat better than the copper rod.
(iv) The wax on the copper rod melts faster than the wax on the brass rod.

Detailed Solution for Olympiad Test: Sorting Materials Into Groups - Question 15

By observing the amount of wax melted in each case in the figure, we can conclude about the conductivity of the rods. As the wax melted maximum on copper rod, it is a good conductor of heat followed by aluminium and brass. Glass is an insulator.

Camphor being sublimable in nature, is separated by sublimation (process in which solid is directly converted into vapours on heating). Iron being magnetic in nature, is separated by magnetic separation method. Sand particles being large in size and insoluble in water are separated by filtration. They are obtained in the filter paper.     
On evaporating the filtrate, salt is separated.
