SECTION B

3. Brass and steel are two examples oI alloy.Brass which consists oI copper and another
element is harder than pure copper.

(a) hat element is mixed with copper to Iorm brass?

ï|ss¡(|||t/sssl|isst|s|/ss|sss|||s|I||| |s|s Ie

Zinc.

(b) hat type oI particles is Iound in pure copper?
tom.

(c) raw and label the arrangement oI particles in pure copper and in brass.

(d) Explain why brass is harder than pure copper.
The atoms in pure copper are the same in size and are packed closely.Layers oI these
atoms easily slide over one another when Iorce is applied.The zinc and copper atoms
in brass are oI diIIerent sizes.This disrupts the arrangement oI the layers oI atoms
and make them diIIicult to slide over one another.

(e) State the pure metal and Ioreign atoms that Iorm steel.
Pure metal : Iron
Foreign atom : Carbon
4. iagram 4 shows the disposal oI industrial waste Irom a chemical Iactory that
manuIactures chemicals needed Ior the growth oI crops.

(a) State one product that could be produced by the Iactory.
Fertiliser.

(b) State two pollutants that might be disposed Irom the Iactory into the river.
Nitrate and phosphate compounds

(c) State one adverse eIIects oI the pollutants in 4(b) on the environment.
isrupt the balance oI aquatic ecosystem.

(d) The Iactory uses petroleum as the source energy.
i. State one acidic gas produced in the burning oI Iossil Iuel.
Sulphur dioxide

ii. State one method to control air pollutant in 4(d)(i) Irom the Iactory.
issolve the gas using air cleaner system beIore release to air.

5. ir pollution is caused by the burning oI Iossil Iuel Irom Iactories.

ï|ss¡(|||t/sssl|isst|s|/ss|sss|||s|I||| |s|s e|

(a) Give three examples oI pollutants which may be contained in the smoke released
Irom Iactory chimneys.
Carbon monoxide,dust and sulphur dioxide.

(b) i. hat happens iI acidic gas dissolves in rain water?
cid rain.

ii. State one eIIect oI pollution to the environment and human health caused by the
event in 5(b)(i).
Environment : Lower p value uman health : Respiratory system

(c) Suggest one way how Iactories can reduce the release oI acidic gas into the air.
issolve the gas using air cleaner system beIore release to air.

(d) part Irom Iactories,what other source that causes poisonous gases to be releases to the
surroundings?
Motor vehicles

6. Study the Iollowing statement.

(a) Suggest one hypothesis to investigate the above statement.
Hypothesis : stainless steel nail does not rust easily compared to an iron nail.

(b) i. Aim : To study the resistance oI stainless steel nail to rusting.

ii. Variable that :
- Constant : Concentration and volume oI sodium chloride solution.
- Manipulated : Type oI nail
- Respond : Rusting oI nail

iii. List oI apparatus and materials : .5 mol dm¯¹ sodium chloride solution,iron nail,
stainless steel nail,test tubes,test tube rack.

iv. Procedure :
- Test tubes and B are each Iilled with 5 cm¹ oI sodium chloride solution.
- n iron nail is put into test tubes and stainless steel nail into test tube B.
- Both test tubes are leIt on a rack Ior three days.
- Observation oI the nails is recorded.

v. Tabulation of data :
Type of nail Observation
Ìron nails left outside the house rust easily
compared to stainless steel nail.

vii. Conclusion : lloy is more resistant to rust than pure metal.

7. (a) State one process that can be used to produce this chemical substance.Explain.
Iron nail
Stainless steel nail

ï|ss¡(|||t/sssl|isst|s|/ss|sss|||s|I||| |s|s e¦

- aber process
- One volume oI nitrogen and three volumes oI hydrogen are used.
- Temperatures between 45-5 °C and 2-5 atmosphere pressure.
- Iron Iilings are used as the catalyst.

(b) Explain how he can prepare ammonia Iertilizer by using the Iollowing substances.
i. mmonium sulphate
ii. Crystallisation
iii. - Excess ammonia solution is added to sulphuric acid.
- The mixture is heated until saturated.
- The solution is leIt to cool.
- mmonium sulphate crystals are produced.

8. (a) State Iour diIIerences between bronze and copper.

Bronze Copper
Mixture oI copper and tin Consists oI copper only
arder SoIter
Stronger Less strong
Can withstand corrosion Cannot withstand corrosion

(b) i. IdentiIy the common characteristics :
- Contain two or more metals
- Stronger than pure metals

ii. Initial concept : Substance that contains two or more metals and is stronger
compared to pure metals is an alloy.

iii. Example : Bronze
Non-example : Tin

iv. Actual concept : Alloy is a substance that contains two or more metals and is
more stronger compared to pure metals.
