CBSE - Class 9 - CH2 - Is Matter Around Us Pure

Q1: On the basis of composition, how matter is classified?

Pure Subtance


Q2(NCERT): What is meant by a pure substance?
Answer: A sample of matter containing only one substance is called a pure substance. In other words all constituents of the substance are same in their chemical

Q3: What are the characteristics exhibited by a pure substance?

A pure substance contains only one kind of atoms or molecules.


It is perfectly homogenous


It has definite composition which does not vary with time.


It has definite melting point, boiling point, density etc.

Q4: What are different categories of pure substance?



Q5: Name two properties of a substance to check its purity?
Answer: A pure substance has a fixed melting point or boiling point at constant pressure. The purity of a substance can be tested by checking its melting point or
boiling point. If a substance is impure i.e. it contains traces of another substance, the melting and boiling point of that substance will change.
Q6: Define mixture.
Answer: If two or more substances (elements or compounds) are mixed together in any proportion, do not undergo any chemical change but retain their properties,
the resulting substance is called mixture.
Q7: What are the kinds of mixture?

Homogenous mixture

Hetrogenous mixture

Q8: What are the characteristics of mixture?
1. Variable composition: The constituents of a mixture are present in any ratio. Example: A mixture of sand and salt can be in a ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 by weight.
2. Only Physical change: The mixture is a result of physical change. The constituents of a mixture do not bind each other by chemical bonds. Example: In air the
main constituents, i.e., oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, do not bind each other with chemical bonds.
3. No specific properties: The properties of a mixture are the average of the properties of its constituents. Example: The properties of air are average common
properties of nitrogen and oxygen.
4. Homogeneity: Most of the mixtures are heterogeneous, i.e., their constituents are not spread evenly throughout. However, some mixtures are homogeneous
i.e. constituents are uniformly spread out. Example: In the mixture of iron and sulphur, at some places iron is more and at some places sulphur is more.
5. Separation Methods: In general, the constituents of mixture can be separated by applying suitable physical methods. E.g. Iron can be separated from the

Q17: What is a solution? What are the properties of a solution? Answer: A homogeneous mixture of two or more substances is called a solution. whereas the substance in which the solute is dissolved is called solvent. 3. A true solution is clear and transparent ( A few may be coloured one but clear.(dissolving. The particles of a solution are smaller than 1 nm in diameter. The components of a mixture can be separated The constituents of a compound cannot by simple physical means.g. they cannot be seen by naked eyes. A mixture has no definite melting or boiling points and density. The solute particles cannot be separated from the mixture by the process of filtration. which combine chemically in a fixed ratio of 1:8 by weight.

Then. why does excess of bubbles come out? Answer: A cola (or carbonated) beverage is produced by dissolving carbon dioxide in the drink solution under pressure. Q22: Why do fish go in deep waters during day light? Answer: During day time. For example. 3.  Pressure: It is applicable to gas-in-liquid solutions. (non-aqueous mean without water). aerated drinks contain carbon dioxide gas under pressure. and it comes out in as bubbles from the solution. if solute is dissolved in solvent like benzene. Therefore. For example. Air does not have a fixed composition. sugar solution i.g. Q30: What is an unsaturated solution? Answer: A solution in which some more solute can be dissolved at any fixed temperature is called an unsaturated solution. greater is the solubility. saline glucouse solution is given to patients suffering from dehydration.g. For example.g. alcohol. solubility decreases with increase in temperature. . In saturated solution. ether. reactant molecules must come close together. Liquid air does not have a definite boiling point. solute and solvent may be present in the form of ions or molecules or both. However for solutions of gases-in-water type. the shallow water is warmer and hence it has less dissolved oxygen. Q31(NCERT): What is saturated solution? Explain with an example. To carry out reactions. E. Q27: When we open the cap of a cola drink (or any carbonated beverage).Numerically. e. more carbon dioxide dissolves at the higher pressure. Therefore fish tend to go in deep water during day time. Answer: A solution in which no more solute can be dissolved at any fixed temperature is called a saturated solution.  Mechanical Stirring: Mechanical stirring increases solubility. In solutions. how solutions are classified? Answer:  Unsaturated solution  Saturated solution  Super saturated solution Q25: What are aqueous solutions? Answer: Solutions in which water is the solvent are called aqueous solutions. solubility increases with temperature. if 500 g of a solvent can dissolve a maximum of 150 g of a particular solute at 40°C. Solubility is the maximum weight of a solute that can be dissolved in 100g of a solvent at a given temperature and pressure.  Size of Solute Particles: Smaller the particle size of solute. it is the number of grams of a solute that dissolves in 100g of a solvent to form a saturated solution at a given temperature and pressure.

Q29: What are the advantages of preparing solutions? Answer: In a solution. by removing the cap of the bottle. carbon disulphide. the solution obtained by dissolving 150 g of that solute in 500 g of that solvent at 300 K is said to be a saturated solution at 300 K. We can prepare air artificially by mixing the various components of air in the same proportions in which they occur at a place. 2. Q21: What factors affect the solubility of solvent and solute? Answer:  Temperature: For majority of solutions of solid-in-liquid and liquid-in-liquid types. An increase in pressure increases the solubility of a gas. When this pressure is suddenly released.

Answer:  Aqueous solution  Non-aqueous solution Q24: Based on the amount of solute in the given solution. carbon dioxide is less soluble. sugar dissolved in water. Q28: Why air is a mixture not a compound? Give reasons. Any more solute added will settle down at the bottom of the container as a precipitate. As dissolving medium like medicines.g. Solutions are obtained for the following reasons: 1. reactions take place faster because reactants are in ionic or molecular form an dare close to each other. Its composition varies from place to place. e. Certain medicines can only be administered to patients in solution form only. 4. Increase in pressure increases the solubility of gases. it is easier to dissolve powdered sugar than granules of sugar.
