Q2. According to weight, the percentage of Hydrogen in water (H_2 O), is-
वजन के अनुसार, पानी में हाइड्रोजन का प्रतिशत (H2O), है?
(a) 44.45%
(b) 5.55%
(c) 88.89%
(d) 11.11%

Show Answer
Sol. Percentage of composition is the percent by mass of each element present in a compound.
In Water, H2O = 2 + 16 = 18 g/mol
Molecular weight of water 18.0152 grams
No. of Hydrogen atoms present in Water = 2
∴ Percentage of Hydrogen in water
= 2/18×100=11.11%

(b) Moderator / मॉडरेटर
(c) Ore  / अयस्क
(d) Fuel  / ईंधन

Show Answer
Sol. Heavy water (D2O) Deuterium Oxide is used as a moderator and coolant in nuclear reactors because it slows down neutrons effectively and also has a low probability of absorption of neutrons. Deuterium is an isotope of Hydrogen which comprises both a neutron and a proton. D2O is a form of water which reacts with Oxygen to form Deuterium Oxide (O2O), also known as heavy water.

Q11. Consider the following statements: 
निम्नलिखित कथनों को ध्यानपूर्वक पढ़िए.
Hard water is not suitable 
कठोर जल उपयुक्त नहीं है:
1. Drinking / पीने के लिए 
2. Washing clothes with soap / साबुन के साथ कपड़े धोने के लिए  
3. Use in boilers / बायलर में उपयोग करने के लिए 
4. Irrigating crops / फसलों की सिंचाई के लिए

Which of these statements are correct? 
इनमे से कौन सा कथन सत्य है ?
(a) 1 and 2 / 1 और 2
(b) 2 and 3   / 2 और 3
(c) 1, 2 and 4   / 1,2 और 4
(d) 1, 2, 3 and 4  / 1,2,3 और 4

Show Answer
Sol. Drinking water is described as “hard” due to the presence of highly dissolved minerals specifically sulphates of Calcium and Magnesium Chloride. It is very difficult to wash clothes with hard water as it requires more soap and leaves a messy scum that cannot be washed out easily. When hard water is boiled at home or in industries, it leaves deposits of Calcium and Magnesium salts. These deposits reduce the efficiency of boilers, kettles and pipes and can cause blockages and even burst of the boilers. If salt level increases in irrigation water, it becomes harder for lawns and landscape plant to take up water even though the soil is moist. Consequently, more salty water requires extra effort to irrigate.

Q12. Permanent hardness of water is due to- 
पानी की स्थायी कठोरता की वजह है:
(a) Chlorides and sulphates of Calcium and Magnesium / कैल्शियम और मैग्नेशियम के क्लोराइड और सल्फाट
(b) Calcium bicarbonate sulphates / कैल्शियम बिकारबोनेट सल्फ़ेट्स
(c) Magnesium bicarbonate  / मैग्नेशियम बाइकार्बोनेट
(d) Clorides of Silver and Potassium  / सिल्वर और पोटेशियम के क्लोराइड्स

Show Answer
Permanent hardness in water is hardness due to the presence of the chlorides  and sulphates of calcium and magnesium

Q13. The pH-value for water is-
पानी का pH-मान है – 
(a) Nearly zero / लगभग शून्य
(b) Nearly 7/ लगभग 7
(c) 5 or less than 5 /5 या 5 से कम
(d) 8.7 or more / 8.7 या अधिक
Show Answer
Sol. The pH value of pure water is 7. Pure water is neutral by nature. The solution with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline.

Q14. Water is a good solvent of ionic salts because- 
पानी आयनिक लवण का एक अच्छा विलायक है क्योंकि-
(a) It has a high boiling point  / इसका उच्च क्वथनांक है
(b) It has a high dipole moment / इसमें एक उच्च द्विध्रुव आघूर्ण है
(c) It has a high specific heat  / इसमें उच्च विशिष्ट आघूर्ण है
(d) It has no colour  / इसका  कोई रंग नहीं है

Show Answer
Sol. Water is a good solvent due to its polarity which can easily dissolve into polar compounds. Water dissolves ionic salts by hydrating their component ions. For example, water dissolves NaCl by hydrating and stabling the Na+ and Cl– ions.

Q15. Large quantities of drinking water is prepared from impure water by- 
अशुद्ध पानी से पीने के पानी की बड़ी मात्रा को किसके द्वारा तैयार किया जाता है –  
(a) Desalination  / डिसेलिनेशन
(b) Distillation  / आसवन
(c) Ion-exchange  / आयन विनिमय
(d) Decantation  / निस्तारण

Show Answer
Sol. Desalination is a process that removes minerals from saline water (Also refer to removal of salts and minerals). Seawater desalination has a very effective way of production of potable water for drinking and industries.
