Application of centrifugation are:
Q.9. Give the applications of chromatography.
Applications of chromatography are:
Q.10. Why is crystallisation better than evaporation?
Ans. Crystallisation is a process that separates a pure solid in the form of its crystals from a solution.
Crystallisation is better than evaporation because during Evaporation:
Q.11. How will you separate a mixture of oil and water?
Q.12. A student is given a mixture of naphthalene ball’s powder and common salt. He needs to separate this mixture. How will he do this?

Ans. Air is a homogeneous mixture and its components can be separated by fractional distillation.
The flow diagram shows the steps involved in the process.
Q.14. Draw a flow diagram to show the water purification system in waterworks.
Q.15. Why is air considered as a mixture and not a compound?
Air is considered as a mixture because it exhibits following properties:
Q.16. How can you prove that water is a compound?
Ans. Water is a compound because if we pass electricity through it then at two different electrodes, we get two different gases i.e., oxygen and hydrogen during the electrolysis of water. The ratio of oxygen: hydrogen is 1: 2 by number of molecules.
(i) The properties of oxygen and hydrogen gases sire entirely different from that of liquid water.
(ii) The ratio of oxygen: hydrogen combination is always constant i.e., 1: 2 by volume.
(iii) To separate the components of water, we need electrolytic cell, and it is not a simple process.

Ques 19: If 20g of salt is present is 220 g of solution, calculate the concentration of Solution.
► Concentration of solution = Mass of solute/(Mass of solute = Mass of solvent) × 100
► Mass Solute = 20g
► Mass of solute + solvent = 220g
∴ Concentration of solution = 20/220 × 100 = 9.09%
