(15.95 g)    (8 g)          (9.75 g)        (14.2 g)  
Clearly, in this case, 
Total mass of reactants = (15.95 g + 8 g) = 23.95 g 
Total mass of products = (9.75 g + 14.2 g) = 23.95 g 
Hence, the law of conservation of mass is valid here.

(a) Difference between Evaporation and Boiling 
 
Evaporation Boiling 
It is a surface phenomenon. It is a bulk phenomenon. 
It is a slow process. It is a rapid process. 
It takes place at all temperatures but 
below the boiling point. 
It takes place at a definite and 
constant temperature. 
 
(b) The four factors affecting the rate of evaporation are: 
? Surface area: Evaporation is a surface phenomenon. If the surface area is 
increased, the rate of evaporation increases.  
? Temperature: With the increase of temperature, more number of particles 
gets enough kinetic energy to go into the vapour state and hence the rate of 
evaporation increases. 
? Humidity: If the humidity of air is high, then the rate of evaporation decreases. 
? Wind speed: With the increase in wind speed, the particles of water vapour 
move away with the wind, decreasing the amount of water vapour in the 
surroundings hence the rate of evaporation increases. 
 
14. If the force is acting perpendicular to the direction of motion of a body, then the angle 
between displacement of the body and the force applied is 90°. 
W = F cos ? × s = F cos 90° × s = 0 
Hence, we say that even though the body is doing work against the frictional forces, 
the man does no work against gravity, as the force of gravity acts vertically 
downwards and the angle between displacement of the suitcase and the force is 90°. 
 
15. i) The speed–time graph is a straight line graph, which means that the speed changes 
in equal intervals of time. Thus, line OA represents uniform acceleration. 
 
ii) We just saw that the graph OA represents acceleration. So, the slope of OA will 
give acceleration.  
Acceleration = slope of OA

According to Thomson's model of an atom: 
(a) An atom consists of a positively charged sphere, and negatively charged 
electrons are embedded in it. 
(b) The negative and positive charges are equal in magnitude. Hence, the atom has 
no overall positive or negative charge. 
 
 
Properties of Electrons 
? An electron, denoted as e
-
, is a fundamental particle with a negative 
charge. 
? Its properties are independent of the gas in the discharge tube. 
? Its charge is -1. 
? Mass of an electron is extremely small; it is  of the mass of a 
hydrogen atom (9.108 × 10
-28
 g). So, its mass is considered almost 
negligible. (Hydrogen is an atom of the lowest mass). Since the mass of a 
hydrogen atom is 1 u, we can say that the relative mass of an electron 
is  u. 
? The absolute mass of an electron is 9 × 10
-28
 grams. 
? Its charge is 1 unit negative charge, i.e. 1.602 × 10
-19
 coulombs. 
? Tiny electrons revolve around the nucleus of the atom in specific orbits or 
shells.
