Two Marks Questions

• A copper plate was dipped in AgNO3 solution. After certain time silver from the solution was deposited on the copper plate. State the reason why it happened. Give the chemical equation of the reaction involved.
• An element X on reacting with oxygen forms an oxide X2O. this oxide dissolves in water and turns blue litmus red.
• Why are the two non- metals, carbon and hydrogen are important chemical reference points with regard to the method of metal extraction and reactivity towards acids.
• What is the behavior of magnesium when I is heated and steam is passed over it? Represent the equation.
• Can carbon dioxide react with magnesium?
• A zinc rod was kept in a glass container having CuSO4 solution. On examining, it was found that the blue color of the solution had faded. After few days when the zinc rod was taken out of the solution, a number of small holes were noticed in it. State the reason and give equation of chemical reaction involved.
• What is metallurgy?
