## Physical and Chemical Changes ICSE Class-7th Concise Selina Chemistry Solutions Chapter-2

### Exercise

#### Question 1.

(a) Define:
(i) a physical change
(ii) a chemical change
(b) Give two examples for each of the above two changes.

(a)

(i) Physical chagne : A temporary change in which no new substance is formed, the composition of substance remains the same, though its state, shape and size may change.
(ii) Chemical change : A permanent change in which new substances are formed whose composition and properties are completely different from those of the original substances.

(b)

Physical change:

(i) Change of water into its vapours.
(ii) Heating of iron rod.
Chemical change:

(i) Burning of wood.
(ii) Breathing.

#### Question 2.

What are reversible and irreversible changes ? Give one example for each.

Reversible change : When a change in a substance can be reversed by changing the conditions, it is said to be a reversible change.
Example : Melting of ghee or wax.

Irreversible change : When a substance can not be brought back to its original state after a change, it is said to be an irreversible change.
Example : Souring of milk.

#### Question 3.

Mention a change which is always

Desirable : Changes that are useful to man are desirable changes, e.g. change of milk into curd.

Undesirable : Change that brings about destruction is an undesirable change, e.g. floods and epidemics are undesirable changes.

Periodic : Changes that are repeated at regular intervals of time are called periodic changes, e.g. change of day and night.

#### Question 4.

Is burning a physical change or a chemical change? Why?
Burning is a chemical change as new substance is formed with new properties and it cannot be reversed.

#### Question 5.

A burning candle shows both physical and chemical changes. Explain ?
A burning candle produces wax vapours which solidify and form wax again is physical change. At the same time wax on burning produces water vapours and carbon dioxide which escape into the atmosphere which are new substances with new properties. It is a chemical change.Hence burning of candle shows both physical and chemical changes.

#### Question 6.

State three differences between evaporation and boiling

 Evaporation Boiling Evaporation is a slow process. Its takes place from the surface of the liquid. Evaporation takes place at all temperature. Boiling is a fast process. Bgiling takes place from all parts of the liquid. Boiling takes place at a fixed temperature on heating.

#### Question 7.

State four differences between physical and chemical changes.
Four differences are :

 Physical change Chemical change No new substances with new properties are formed. It can be reversed by simple physical methods. It is temporary change. Energy is neither needed nor produced. New substances with new properties are formed. Change cannot be reversed by simple physical methods. It is permanent change. Energy is either needed or evolved.

#### Question 8.

What do you observe when :

1. water is boiled
Ans :- On boiling water changes into steam (gas) physical change.
2. a piece of paper is burnt
Ans :-On burning piece of paper produces carbon dioxide and ash is left behind. Is a chemical change.
3. some ice cubes are kept in a glass tumbler
Ans :-Ice cubes (solid) turn into water (liquid) only state changes (physical change).
4. solid ammonium chloride is heated
Ans :-Solid ammonium chloride on heating changes into vapours (change of state) is physical change.
5. an iron nail is kept in tap water for few days
Ans :-We observe reddish brown coating on the nail called rust (entirely new substance) is chemical change.
6. a spoon of sugar is heated in a pan
Ans :-When a spoon of sugar is heated in a pan, black (charred sugar) (carbon) is seen. Is a chemical change.
7. lighted match stick is brought near the mouth of the test tube containing hydrogen gas.
Ans :-We observe that hydrogen bums at the mouth of test tube with blue flame and pop sound is heard. It is chemical change.
8. quick lime is dissolved in water.
Ans :- The following two observations will be observed
(i) A hissing sound is observed.
(ii) The mixture starts boiling and lime water is obtained.
9.  liittle ammount of curd is added to a bowl containing warm milk and kept for five hours.
Ans :-When a little amount curd is added to a bowl containing warm milk and kept for five hours, a permanent change occured.
The milk will change to curd. On boiling water changes into steam (gas) physical change.

#### Question 9.

Name a chemical change which takes place in presence of:
Heat:

1. Burning of paper.
2. Cooking of food need heat.

Light :

1. Formation of food by plants i.e. photosynthesis need light.
2. Hydrogen and chlorine react in presence of light

Electricity:

1. Water breaks into hydrogen and oxygen on passing electricity.
2. Sodium chloride solution breaks up into its components sodium and Chlorine on passing electric current through sodium chloride solution.
