SHORT ANSWER TYPE QUESTION

Question 11
How to achieve tight fit of the handle in tools like iron axle?
Question 12
With the help of examples explain what is periodic and what is non periodic changes.
Question 13
Name few changes that Rajesh observed while burning a candle.
Question 14
A bag of cement & a bag of sand was mixed together with water. Was the change that occurred reversible or irreversible? Can we use any method of separation that you learned in previous chapter to separate those ingredients?
Question 15
Why do we classify the changes taking place around us?

Answer (11-15)

11.In order to make tools like an axe, the ring of its iron blade is heated which allows it to expand, then the wooden handle is inserted inside the ring and the iron is allowed to cool which makes it contract and tightly grip the wooden handle.
12. example of periodic change is occurring of day & night, changing of season, these changes occur or repeat itself after a fixed interval of time. While example of non-periodic changes would be occurrence of cyclone, eruption of volcano, tsunami, these changes doesn’t have a fixed interval of time after which it repeats itself.
13.He observed melting of wax, which is a reversible physical change,
He also observed solidification of the melted wax as it cooled down
Next, he saw the burning of flame which is irreversible chemical change.
14.It's an irreversible change.
No, we cannot get back the original ingredients as chemical change takes place and the new item formed has no similarity with original ingredients.
15.We classify the changes taking place around us so that we can have better understanding of these changes.


HOTS

Question 16
Is recycling of paper/plastics or any other product is a reversible change?
Question 17
‘Though trees are planted after deforestation then can it be considered as a reversible change?’ Justify the statement
Question 18
list two irreversible physical changes.
Question 19
Do you think we break molecules when we turn chalk into chalk powder?
Question 20
Rashi while performing a chemistry experiment had put the hot test tube under cold water which immediately cracked. Why do you think the test tube cracked?

Answer(16-20)

16.No, recycling of any product is not a reversible change. Though after recycling paper we get back paper and after recycling plastic we get plastic but it is never like the original product.
17.No, deforestation can’t be considered as a reversible change because no same tree can be planted after felling or cutting.
18.Grinding of wood into sawdust
Breaking of a glass beaker into pieces
19.No, because no new substance is formed, molecules of chalk and chalk powder are same.
20.this is due to contraction when outer surface of glass comes in direct contact with the cold water then it contracts more compared to the inner surface of the glass i.e. not direct contact with the cold water.
