Five solutions A,B,C,D and E when tested with universal indicator showed pH as 4, 1, 11, 7 and 9, respectively. Which solution is
Equal lengths of magnesium ribbons are taken in test tubes A and B. Hydrochloric acid (HCl) is added to test tube A, while acetic acid (CH3COOH) is added to test tube B. Amount and concentration taken for both the acids are same. In which test tube will the fizzing occur more vigorously and why?
Answer: In test tube A fizzing occurs more vigorously. Because HCl is stronger acid than acetic acid. Hence, HCl liberates hydrogen gas more vigorously, which causes fizzing more vigorously.
Fresh milk has a pH of 6. How do you think the pH will change as it turns into curd? Explain your answer.
Answer: The value of pH of milk decreases, when it turns into curd. Curd is acidic in nature, because an acidic substance has less value of pH.
A milkman adds a very small amount of baking soda to fresh milk.
Plaster of Paris should be stored in a moisture-proof container. Explain why?
Answer: Because plaster of Paris turns into Gypsum after reacting with moisture present in air. That’s why Plaster of Paris should be stored in a moisture-proof container.
What is a neutralisation reaction? Give two examples.
Answer: When acid is added to base, it produces salt and water after neutralizing each other, such reactions are known as neutralization reaction.
Example – 1: When Sodium hydroxide is added to hydrochloric acid. Sodium chloride and water is formed.
NaOH + HCl ⇨ NaCl + H2O
Example - 2: Milk of magnesia, which is a base, is given as antacid in the case of indigestion, to neutralize the excess acid produced in stomach.
Mg(OH)2 + 2HCl ⇨ MgCl2 + 2H2O
