Q.74Â List three effects of oxidation in air daily life ? Are these effects useful or harmful ? Justify ?

(i) Corrosion : It is Â harmful, as it loses shine of some metals such as copper and silver. Corrosion of iron called rusting is a serious problem as enormous amount of money is spent to replace damaged iron.

(ii) Rancidity : - It is also harmful, because when fats and oil are oxidised, they becoe rancid and their smell and taste change.

(iii) Burning of Fuels : - It is useful as these are exothermic reactions, large amount of heat energy is evolved.

Q.75Â (a) Potato chips manufactures fill the packet of chips with nitrogen gas. Why ?

(b) Why do we apply point on iron articles ?

(a) Nitrogen is an inert gas. It prevents chips from rancidity or oxidation. Thus its taste remain intact.

(b) Iron articles are painted to prevent them from getting rusted. Coating is done to prevent it from coming in the contact of moist air, which is the cause of corrosion.

Q.76 (a) Explain the term â€œcorrosionâ€œ with anÂ  example. Write a chemical equation to show the process of corrosion of iron ?

(b) What special name is given to the corrosion of iron ?

(c) What type of chemical reactions is involved in the corrosion of iron ?

(d) Name any three objects which are gradually damaged by the corrosion of iron and steel ?

(a) Corrosion is the process in which metals degrades gradually by the action of air, moisture or a chemical on their surface for examples, red â€“ brown coating on iron

Process of Corrosion : -

(i) Iron metal is oxidesed Â by the oxygenÂ Â  of air in the presence of moisture : -

Iron oxygen water hydrated iron oxide

(b) Corrosion of iron is named as

Rusting

(c)Â  Redox reaction is involved in the corrosion of iron.

(d) Following are three objects that gradually degradesÂ by corrosion of iron & steel : -

(i) Iron railings

(ii) Iron nails

(iii) Ships

Q.77 (a) Explain the term â€œ rancidity â€œ. What damage is caused by rancidity ?

(b) What type of chemical reaction is responsible for causing rancidity ?

(c) State and explain the various methods for preventing rancidity of food ?

(a) Rancidity : The condition produced by aerial oxidation of fats and oils in food marked by unpleasant smell and taste is called rancidity
It damages food items due to the development of unpleasant small , generally in fatty and oily foods.

(b) Oxidation reaction is responsible for causing rancidity.

(c) We can apply following methods for preventing rancidity of food : -

(i) use of antioxidants

(ii) use of nitrogen gas, it is an unreactive gas which prevents oxidation of fat and oil.

(iii) use of airtight containers which reduces, exposure to oxygen and slows down the oxidation process.

Q.1 Manoj was asked whether respiration is an exothermic reaction or not. He replied that no, respiration is not exothermic giving the reason that in respiration carbondioxideÂ  is released instead of energy. His classmate shabana told him how respiration is an exothermic reaction Manoj thanked shabanaÂ  for this.

(i) Write the explanation of shabana Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â  Â Â

(ii) What value does shabana show ?

(i) In respiration, glucose combines with oxygen in the cells of our body and provides energy .

So, respiration is an exothermic reaction

(ii) Value : Co â€“ operative learning among students promoting self â€“ confidence among students

${C_6}{H_{12}}{O_6} + 6{O_2} \to 6C{O_2} + 6{H_2}O + Energy$
