(d) State one observation for each of the following: [5]

(i) Concentrated nitric acid is reacted with sulphur.

ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2019 Solved for Class 10 - 2
Dense brown fumes of nitrogen dioxide gas will be released

(ii) Ammonia gas is passed over heated copper (II) oxide.


ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2019 Solved for Class 10 - 3
The black colour copper oxide will change to reddish pink copper.

(iii) Copper sulphate solution is electrolysed using copper electrodes.


When copper sulphate solution is electrolysed using copper electrodes, reddish pink deposit of copper metal takes place on cathode.

(iv) A small piece of zinc is added to dilute hydrochloric acid.

Zn + 2HCl > ZnCl2 + H2
Zinc metal dissolves forming solution with the liberation of hydrogen gas which bums with blue flame and gets extinguished with pop sound.

(v) Lead nitrate is heated strongly in a test tube.

ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2019 Solved for Class 10 - 4
White powder of lead nitrate decompose to form yellow coloured lead oxide and liberating dense brown fumes of nitrogen dioxide gas.

(e) (i) Calculate: [5]

1. The number of moles in 12 g of oxygen gas. [O = 16] 2. The weight of 1022 atoms of carbon.
[C = 12, Avogadro’s No. = 6 × 1023]


1. Oxygen gas (O2)
Molecular mass = 16 x 2 = 32 g
32 g of oxygen gas → 1 mole
1 g of oxygen gas → \frac { 1 }{ 32 } mole
12 g of oxygen gas → \frac { 1 }{ 32 } × 12mole = 0.375 mole

2. 6.022 x 1023 atoms of carbon weigh → 12 g
1 atom of carbon weighs → \frac{12}{6 \times 10^{23}}
1022 atoms of carbon will weigh → \frac{12}{6 \times 10^{23}} \times 10^{22}=\frac{12}{60}=\frac{1}{5} = 0.2 g

(ii) Molecular formula of a compound is C6H18O3. Find its empirical formula.

Molecular formula = C6H18O3
Take the common multiple
Molecular formula = (C2H60)3
Molecular formula = (Empirical formula)„
Thus, empirical formula = C2H6O

(f) (i) Give the IUPAC name of the following organic compounds: [5]

1. Prop – 1 – yne or propyne
2. Ethanal

(ii) What is the special feature of the structure of ethyne ?

ICSE Chemistry Question Paper 2019 Solved for Class 10 - 5
Special feature of the structure of ethyne is the presence of triple bond.

(iii) Name the saturated hydrocarbon containing two carbon atoms.


(iv) Give the structural formula of Acetic acid


Acetic acid (CH3COOH)

(g) Give the appropriate term defined by the statements given below: [5]

(i) The formula that represents the simplest ratio of the various elements present in one molecule of the compound.

Empirical formula

(ii) The substance that releases hydronium ion as the only positive ion when dissolved in water.


(iii) The tendency of an atom to attract electrons totvards itself when combined in a covalent compound.


(iv) The process by which certain ores, specially carbonates, are converted to oxides in the absence of air.


(v) The covalent bond in-which the electrons are shared equally between the combining atoms.

Non-polar covalent bond

(h) Arrange the following according to the instructions given in brackets : [5]
(i) K, Pb, Ca, Zn. (In the increasing order of the reactivity)

Pb < Zn < Ca < K
(According to the position in reactivity series)

(ii) Mg2+, Cu2+, Na1+, H1+ (In the order of preferential discharge at the cathode)

Na1+ < Mg2+ < H1+ < Cu2+
(According to electrochemical series of metals)

(iii) Li, K, Na, H (In the decreasing order of their ionization potential)
