Ans1.The phenomenon is called corrosion (oxidation). Blackcoating onsilverutensilsissilversulphide.

2 Ag(s) + H2S(g) —> Ag2S(s) + H2(g)

silver sulphide

Ans2.Whenanironnailimmersedinthesolutionofcoppersulphatethanirondisplacescopperfrom the solution of copper sulphate because iron is more reactive than copper. Therefore copper sulphate solution colour changes from blue to pale green.

Reaction:CuSO4(aq)+Fe(s)→FeSO4(aq)+Cu(s) Ans3.

  1. energy b) endothermic Ans4. a) Ca(OH)2 calcium hydroxide
  2. White-wash is especially compatible with masonry because it is absorbed easily and the resultant chemicalreaction hardensthe medium.

c)(1)The solution of the substance used for whitewashing is calcium oxide also called quicklime with chemical formula CaO.

  1. Itformsslackedlimeorcalciumhydroxidewhenthequicklimereactswithwater CaO(s) +H2O

(l) → Ca(OH)2(aq).

d)Quicklime is used for whitewashing as it produces calcium hydroxide (CaOH) when it reacts with water(H2O)and absorbscarbondioxide(CO2)fromtheenvironment,asaresult,itproduces  calcium carbonate (CaCO3) which creates a hard coating on the walls. Walls start shining due to the formationofcalcium carbonate.
