### Intext Question Analytical Chemistry ICSE Class-10

Question 1

What do you understand by the following:

(i) Analysis,

(ii) Qualitative analysis,

(iii) Reagent,

(iv) Precipitation?

(i) Analysis: The determination of chemical components in a given sample is called analysis.

(ii) Qualitative analysis: The analysis which involves the identification of the unknown substances in a given sample is called qualitative analysis.

(iii) Reagent:A reagent is a substance that reacts with another substance.

(iv) Precipitation: It is the process of formation of an insoluble solid when solutions are mixed. The solid thus formed is called precipitate.

#### Question 2

(i) Iron (III) chloride,

(ii) Potassium nitrate,

(iii) Ferrous sulphate,

(iv) Aluminum acetate,

(i) Yellow

(ii) Colourless

(iii) Pale Green

(iv) Colourless

#### Question 3

Name the probable cations present in the following observations:

a.White precipitate insoluble in NH4OH but soluble in NaOH

 Name of solution Soluble metal hydroxides Insoluble metal hydroxides Caustic soda solution Zn(OH)2 Pb(OH)2 Fe(OH)3 Ammonium hydroxide solution Zn(OH)2 Cu(OH)2 Fe(OH)3 Fe(OH)2

#### Question 5

What do you observe when an ammonium salt is heated with caustic soda solution? Write the word equation.

When ammonium salt is heated with caustic soda solution, ammonia gas is evolved.

The word equation is:

Ammonium chloride + Sodium hydroxide          Sodium chloride + water + ammonia

Ammonium sulphate + Sodium hydroxide      Sodium sulphate + water + ammonia

The balance equation is:

NH4Cl+NaOH        NaCl+H2O+NH3

(NH4)2SO4 + 2NaOH            Na2SO4 + 2H2O + 2NH3

#### Question 6

How will you distinguish NH4OH solution from NaOH solution?

NH4OH and NaOH can be distinguished by using calcium salts.

For example on adding NaOH to Ca(NO3)2, Ca(OH)2 is obtained as white precipitate which is sparingly soluble in excess of NaOH.

Ca(NO3)2+2NaOHCa(OH)2+2NaNO3

On addition of NH4OH to calcium salts, no precipitation of Ca(OH)2 occurs even with the addition of excess of NH4OH.This is because the concentration of OH ions from the ionization of NH4OH is so low that it cannot precipitate the hydroxide of calcium.

#### Question 7

Why is an alkali added drop by drop to the salt solution?

If an alkali is added too quickly, then it is easy to miss a precipitate which redissolves in excess alkali.

#### Question 8

Write balanced equations:

(a) Reaction of sodium hydroxide solution with iron (III) chloride solution.

(b) Copper sulphate solution with ammonium hydroxide solution.

(a)

(b)

#### Question 10

What do you observe when freshly precipitated aluminum hydroxide reacts with caustic soda solution?Give balanced equation.

When freshly precipitated aluminum hydroxide reacts with caustic soda solution, whitesalt of sodium meta aluminate is obtained.

#### Question 11

You are provided with two reagent bottles marked A and B. One of which contains NH4OH solution and the other contains NaOH solution. How will you identify them by a chemical test?

Reagent bottles A and B can identified by using calcium salts such as Ca(NO3)2.

On adding NaOH to Ca (NO3)2, Ca (OH) 2 is precipitated as white precipitate which is sparingly soluble in excess of NaOH.

Ca(NO3)2+2NaOHCa(OH)2+2NaNO3

Whereas, on addition of NH4OH to calcium salts, no precipitation of Ca(OH)occurs even with addition of excess of NH4OH because the concentration of OHions from the ionization of NH4OH is so low that it cannot precipitate the hydroxide of calcium.

So the reagent bottle which gives white precipitate is NaOH and the other is NH4OH.

(c) Sodium hydroxide and ammonium hydroxide on reaction with Copper salt gives pale blue coloured precipitate, while that of with ferrous salt solution it forms dirty green coloured precipitate.

(d)Sodium hydroxide and ammonium hydroxide on reaction with Fe(II) salt gives dirty green coloured precipitate, while that of with Fe(III) salt solution it forms reddish brown insoluble precipitate.

(e) Ammonium hydroxide on reaction with lead nitrate gives a chalky white insoluble precipitate, while that of with ferrous nitrate will not give any precipitation.

#### Question 13

How will you distinguish lead carbonate and zinc carbonate in solution?

Lead carbonate is dissolved in dilute nitric acid and then ammonium hydroxide is added to it. A white precipitate is formed which is insoluble in excess.
