1. (i)  2, 3 – dimethyl butane
ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2017 Solved for Class 10 - 1
2. (diethyl ether) C2H5 – O – C2H5
ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2017 Solved for Class 10 - 2
3. propanoic acid CH3 – CH2 – COOH
ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2017 Solved for Class 10 - 3
(ii) 1. Pulverisation
2. Calcination

(g) (i) Calculate the number of gram atoms in 4.6 grams of sodium (Na = 23). [5]

(ii) Calculate the percentage of water of crystallization CuSO4.5H2O (H = 1,O = 16, S = 32, Cu = 64)
(iii) A compound of X and Y has the empirical formula XY2. Its vapour density is equal to its empirical formula weight. Determine its molecular formula.

(i) 23 g of sodium → 1 gram atom
1 g of sodium → \frac{1}{23} gram atom
4.6 g of sodium → = \frac{1}{23} \times \frac{4.6}{10}=\frac{2}{100} =0.02gatoms

(ii) Molecular mass of CUSO4.5H2O
= [64 + 32+4 x 16] + 5[18] – [64 + 32+64] + [90] = 160+90
= 250
% of water of crystallisation =\frac{90}{250} \times 100
= 36%

(iii) E.F. = XY2
E.F.W. = V.D.
M.W. = 2 × V.D.
M.W. = 2 × [E.F.W.] So molecular formula = (XY2)2 = X2Y4

(h) Match the atomic number 2,4, 8,15, and 19 with each of the following: [5]

(i) A solid non-metal belonging to the third period.
(ii) A metal of valency 1.
(iii) A gaseous element with valency 2.
(iv) An element belonging to Group 2.
(v) A rare gas.
