Q11. When a copper wire was left in silver nitrate solution for some time, it was observed that the solution turned bluish-green.
(i) Explain the observation.
(ii) Write the balanced chemical equation to represent the change.   (3 Marks)
Ans.
 (i) Copper is more reactive than silver. Hence, when the copper wire is dipped in silver nitrate solution, it displaces silver from AgNO3 solution forming copper nitrate, which is bluish-green in color.

FAQs on Chemical Reactions and Equations - 1 Class 10 Worksheet Science

1. What is a chemical reaction?
Ans. A chemical reaction is a process that leads to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another. It involves the breaking and forming of chemical bonds between atoms to create new substances with different properties.
2. How can chemical reactions be represented?
Ans. Chemical reactions can be represented using chemical equations. These equations show the reactants on the left side and the products on the right side, separated by an arrow. The number and types of atoms on both sides of the equation must be balanced to follow the law of conservation of mass.
3. What are the different types of chemical reactions?
Ans. There are several types of chemical reactions, including synthesis (combination), decomposition, displacement (single and double), redox (oxidation-reduction), and acid-base reactions. Each type has its own characteristics and can be identified based on the changes in reactants and products.
4. How do you balance a chemical equation?
Ans. To balance a chemical equation, you need to ensure that the number of atoms of each element is the same on both sides of the equation. This is done by adjusting the coefficients (numbers in front of the formulas) of the reactants and products. Start by balancing the atoms that appear in only one compound and then proceed to balance the others.
5. What is the importance of chemical reactions in everyday life?
Ans. Chemical reactions play a crucial role in everyday life. They are involved in various processes, such as digestion, respiration, photosynthesis, and combustion. Chemical reactions also enable the production of many useful substances, such as medications, fertilizers, and plastics. Understanding chemical reactions helps us comprehend the world around us and develop new technologies and innovations.
