Part – A Hydrogen Chloride

Question 1.

Give a reason why
(a) gastric juices of luammals are acidic
(b) HCl is considered a polar covalent compound.
(a) HCI gas occurs in free state in gastric juices of mammals.
(b) Due to difference in electronegativities of H and Cl ; The bond in HCl is a polar covalent.

Question 2.

Question 4.

In the laboratory preparation of HCl frem sodium chloride, state why the following are

 preferred –

  1. Cone. H2SO4 as a reactant
  2. Temp, below 200°C
  3. Cone. H2SO4 as a drying agent.


  1. Since it is non-volatile and has a high boiling point.
  2. The glass apparatus does not crack, no hard crust is formed, fuel is not wasted.
  3. It only removes moisture content of the gas but not react with it.

Question 5.

State with reasons the method of collection of HCl gas in the laboratory.
HCl gas is collected by upward displacement of air because it is 1.28 times heavier than air. It is not collected in water because it is highly soluble in water.

Question 6.

Compare the density of HCl gas with air and state the solubility of HCl gas in water.
V.D of HCl = 18.25, V.D of air = 14.4. It is highly soluble in water.

Question 7.

State why HCl gas forms a mist of droplets of HCl acid in moist air.
Due to high solubility, HCl gas fumes in moist air and forms a mist of droplets of HCl acid.

Question 8.

State what the fountain experiment demonstrates with reference to HCl gas.
Fountain experiment demonstrates the solubility of HCI gas in water and its acidic nature.


Question 9.

State the colour change in three different indicators in presence of HCl gas.

Question 10.

Give a balanced equation for the thermal dissociation of

  1. a gas
  2. a solid (both containing the chloride ion).

Question 11.

Give the equation and state the observation seen when HCl gas reacts with ammonia.
When a gas jar containing hydrogen chloride gas is inverted over ajar full of ammonia gas, dense white fumes are formed.

Question 13.

Explain the arrangement (i) not used (ii) used – for converting HCl gas into HCl acid.
Hydrochloric acid is prepared by dissolving hydrogen chloride gas in water usi ig a special funnel arrangement.

Ans 13 Additional Questions Hydrogen ChlorideDalal Simplified ICSE

1. Direct absorption of HCl gas in water using a delivery tube i.e., arrangement (i) causes back suction.
Hydrogen chloride gas is extremely soluble in water. If a delivery tube through which HCl gas is passed is directly immersed in water, the rate of absorption of HCl gas is high and hence a partial vacuum is created in the tube. The pressure outside being higher causes the water to be pushed up into the delivery tube and damages the apparatus. This is called back-suction.
2. Special funnel arrangement, i.e., arrangement (ii) is used for avoiding back suction.
The funnel arrangement :

(a) Prevents or minimizes back-suction of water.
(b) Provides a large surface area for absorption of HCl gas.

The rim of the funnel is placed so that it just touches the trough containing water. If back-suction occurs, the water rises up the funnel and the level outside the funnel falls, thus creating an air gap between the rim of the funnel and the surface of water. The pressure outside and inside equalize and the water which had risen in the funnel falls down again. This process continues till the water in the trough is saturated with hydrogen chloride gas resulting information of hydrochloric acid.
Hence hydrochloric acid is not prepared in the laboratory by passing hydrogen chloride gas directly through water, but prepared using a special funnel arrangement.

Question 14.

Explain the term ‘constant boiling mixture’.
A solution of HCl in water forms a constant boiling mixture with water.

Question 15.

State why dilute HCl cannot be concentrated beyond a certain concentration by boiling.
On boiling the mixture evolves out the vapours of both acid and water in the same proportion as in the liquid. Hence dil HCl cannot be concentrated beyond a certain concentration.

Question 16.

Name the ions obtained when HCl dissociates in aqueous solution.
Hydronium ions.

Question 17.

Name the ion responsible for acidic nature of HCl acid.
The presence of hydrogen ions |H+| imparts acidic nature to HCl.

Question 18.

State which of two – a solution of HCl in water or in toluene is an electrolyte, giving reasons.
A solution of hydrogen chloride in water; water being a covalent solvent ionizes aqueous solution of HCl shows acidic properties and is an electrolyte, whereas toluene is not; being not a polar solvent.

Question 19.

Give four different word equations relating to acidic properties of an aq. soln. of HCl gas.
Zinc + Hydrochloric acid → Zinc chloride + Hydrogen
Sodium hydroxide + Hydrochloric acid → Sodium chloride + Water
Sodium carbonate + Hydrochloric acid → Sodium chloride + Carbon dioxide + Water
Calcium oxide + Hydrochloric acid → Calcium chloride + Water

Question 20.

Give balanced equations to obtain

  1. H2
  2. CO2
  3. SO2
  4. H2S from dil. HCl.


  1. Zn + 2HCl → ZnCl2 + H2
  2. Na2CO2 + 2HCl → 2NaCl + H2O + CO2
  3. Na2SO3 + 2HCl → 2NaCl + H20 + SO2
  4. FeS + 2HCl → FeCl2 + H2S

Question 21.

Convert two soluble metallic nitrates to insoluble metallic chlorides using dil. HCl.
