Solution 1

(a) Elements : An element is a pure substance which can neither be broken down into simpler substances nor formed from two or more simpler substances by any known physical or chemical process. It is made of only one kind of atoms. It can be divided into four main categories
(i) Metals-Iron, magnesium
(ii) Non-metals-Hydrogen, oxygen
(iii) Metalloids-Arsenic, antimony
(iv) Noble gas-Helium, neon
(b) Compound: A compound is a pure substance that is composed of two or more elements chemically combined in definite proportion by mass.
The physical and chemical properties of a compound are different from those of its constituent elements.Hydrogen gas is combustible and oxygen is supporter of combustion , their  compound water  which is liquid is neither combustible nor a supporter of combustion.
(c) Mixture: Mixture is a physical combination of two or more substances, whether elements or compounds, which are mixed in any proportion by mass and retain their original properties even after mixing.
Homogeneous mixture: They have same composition  and the same properties throughout their entire mass. Example- Salt solution, alloys etc.
Heterogeneous mixture: They have different composition and different properties in different parts of their mass. Example-Mixture of sand and salt, mixture of iron fillings and sulphur etc.

Solution 23

Solution 24

(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

(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.

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

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.

Solution 43

Centrifugation is used in milk dairies to separate cream from milk dairies.
