(a) A Molecule - The smallest particle of a substance that retains the chemical and physical properties of the substance and is composed of two or more atoms.
(b) Atomicity - Atomicity of an element is defined as the number of atoms present in one molecule of that element.
Solution 5
Pure substance-
A pure substance is one which is made up of only one kind of particles. These particles may be atoms or molecules.
Example-Sulphur,  water.
Impure substance-
They are mixtures of two or more chemically different substances mixed in indefinite proportions. The constituent substances retain their properties in the mixture.
Example-Mixture of salt and sand, gunpowder
Solution 19
Since, the constituents of a mixtures may be present in varying proportions so it cannot be expressed by a fixed chemical formula.

Solution 9
Two reasons for believing that copper is a metal and sulphur is a non-metal are:-
(i) Copper is malleable and ductile while sulphur is neither malleable nor ductile.
(ii) Copper is a good conductor of heat while sulphur is not good conductor of heat.
Solution 10
Metalloids - The elements which possess properties intermediate between those of the metals and non-metals are called as metalloids. They react with both acids and alkali's to form salts.
Ex - Arsenic, antimony
Solution 11
Graphite is a non-metal which is a good conductor of electricity.

(a) Chromatography - The chromatography is a technique of separating pure substances from the mixture.
Advantages of chromatography -
(i) It requires a very small amount of the substance or sample.
(ii) The components retain their individuality during the process.
(iii) Chromatography finds application in easy separation of substances with similar physical and chemical properties.
(b) Filtration-It is a separation technique for separating a mixture in which one component should be solid and insoluble in the other liquid component.
Example- Barium sulphate  in water.
(c) Fractional distillation -
It is a technique used to separate  two liquids which dissolve in one another.The separation relies on the differences in boiling points of the two liquids.
No, mixture of chloroform and water cannot be separated by this method.
(d) Centrifugation:It is a method for separating the suspended particles of a substance from a liquid in which the mixture is rotated at a high speed in centrifuge machine.
Application - The clay particles in water (which are very fine) can be separated by centrifugation.
Solution 25
(a) The vapour state which is obtained by heating solid without passing through liquid state is called sublimate.
(b) A liquid condensed from vapour in distillation is called distillate.
(c) The liquid produced after filtering a suspension of a solid in a liquid is called filtrate.
(d) Supernatant liquid is the upper layer of fluid found after a mixture has been centrifuged.
(e) If there is a heterogeneous mixture containing an insoluble solid in a liquid, then the solid substance that settle down is called sediment.
Solution 26
We use fractional distillation to separate alcohol from a mixture of alcohol and water since the difference in boiling point between alcohol and mixture is very less.
Solution 27
(a) We obtain pure water from sea water by distillation.
(b) A sample of pure iodine and sodium chloride is obtained by sublimation.
Solution 28
The separation of the mixture depends upon-
(i) Size of the constituents
(ii) Magnetic properties of constituents
(iii) Mass of the constituents
(iv) Solubility of the constituents
(v) Miscibilities of the constituents
(vi) Boiling point of the constituents
(vii) Diffusion rate of the constituents
Solution 29
This is a separation technique of solid-solid mixture. This method involves the use of a solvent in which only one of the solid present in the mixture dissolves. Undissolved solid is removed by filtration. Mixture of ammonium chloride and silver chloride is separated by this method.
Solution 30
(a) By distillation and fractional distillation we separate the mixture of two liquids.
(b) Yes, mixture of chloroform (B.P.= 61oC) and carbon tetrachloride (B.P.=77OC) be satisfactorily separated by the process of fractional distillation which is used for separating the various fractions of petroleum.
For this purpose we will make two fractionating columns in the apparatus.

(ii) Distillation-Acetone and water
(iii) Fractional distillation-Ethyl alcohol and water
Solution 32
The chromatography is the technique of separating pure substances from the mixtures. The chromatographic techniques was first employed by a Russian scientist Michael Tswett in 1903 for the separation of coloured substance from the mixture.
Principle of chromatography: The principle of chromatography is based on the difference in the extent of interaction (absorption) of various substances with a stationary phase and a mobile phase. A substance which interacts strongly with the mobile phase goes ahead of the other substance which interacts strongly with the stationary phase.
Solution 33
Ink generally contain more than one dye. This mixture of ink is used as moving phase. Different constituents of ink move at different speed. The solvent rises up the filter paper over the spot and carries the different coloured components of ink to different heights on the filter paper. Each spot thus obtained at a particular height on the filter paper contains a particular constituent of the ink. Thus, the components of the ink are separated.
Solution 34
By the help of fractional distillation we separate the components of liquid air.
Solution 35

(b) Decrease in weight - Sodium carbonate crystals
(c) No change in weight - Sodium chloride

(i) Oil and water
(ii) Chloroform and water

Solution 42
(a) When a magnet is moved over 'X', iron fillings are pulled away and stick to the magnet. When a magnet is moved over 'Y', it remained  unaffected.
(b) When'X' is treated with carbon disulphide, sulphur dissolves but not iron. While, when'Y' is treated with carbon disulphide, iron sulphide does not dissolve  but sinks to the bottom of the test tube.
(c) When 'X' is treated with dilute HCl, a colourless, odourless gas hydrogen is evolved which burns with a blue flame and is extinguished with a pop sound. While, when 'Y' is treated with dilute HCl, a colourless gas with the smell of rotten eggs is evolved which is H2S.
There is difference in the behavior of 'X' and 'Y' because 'X' is a mixture while 'Y' is a compound. The component of a mixture do not react chemically, so retain their identity in the mixture while the components of compound react chemically, so do not retain their identity in the compound.
