QUESTION: 1

### A solution turns red litmus blue, its pH is likely to be –

Solution:

The solution which turns red litmus blue is basic. Its pH should be greater than 7. Therefore, the correct answer is (d).

QUESTION: 2

### A solution reacts with crushed egg-shells to give a gas that turns lime-water milky. The solution contains–

Solution:

The solution is HCl.
Egg shells contains calcium carbonate, which on reaction with HCl liberates CO2 gas which turn lime water to milky.
CaCO3 + 2HCl → CaCl2 + H2O + CO2

QUESTION: 3

### 10 ml of a solution of NaOH is found to be completely neutralised by 8mL of a given solution of HCl. If we take 20 mL of the same solution of NaOH, the amount HCl solution (the same solution as before) required to neutralise it will be–

Solution:

Since 10 mL of NaOH solution requires 8 mL of HCl solution

Therefore, 20 mL of NaOH solution will require 8 x 2 = 16 mL of HCl solution

QUESTION: 4

Which one of the following types of medicines is used for treatment indigestion–

Solution:

QUESTION: 9

Soda ash is –

Solution:

Soda ash, also known as sodium carbonate (Na2CO3), is an alkali chemical compound

QUESTION: 10

Which of the following is an basic salt?

Solution:

Salt of weak acid and strong base: CH3COONa is a salt of weak acid CH3COOH and strong base NaOH. When it is dissolved in water it dissociates completely. ions of water get trapped and the pH of solution increases.

QUESTION: 11

Which of the following method is not used in preparing a base?

Solution:

The reaction between acid and base
It is a neutralization reaction which forms a salt but the base is not formed.

QUESTION: 12

Fats + NaOH→ ........+ Glycerol. One of the product formed in this reacton is –

Solution:

Soaps are sodium or potassium salts of long chain fatty acids. When triglycerides in fat/oil react with aqueous NaOH or KOH, they are converted into soap and glycerol. This is called alkaline hydrolysis of esters.

QUESTION: 21

“Alcohols and glucose contain hydrogen but are not treated as acids”

Solution:

When acid is dissolved in water, it dissociates into ions and thus it conducts electricity due to presence of ions. But alcohol and glucose being very weak acid do not dissociate into ions and thus, do not conduct electricity.

QUESTION: 22

Lemon contains

Solution:

The main organic acids contained in the flesh of lemons are citric acid and malic acid. The sourness of citrus fruit is the taste of citric acid.
