Complete the following equation:
NaOH + Zn → ___ +____
2NaOH + Zn → Na2ZnO2 + H2
Explanation- When metal react to base then metallic salt and hydrogen (H2) gas are formed.
Balancing of chemical equation-
(i) Here one Na atom is in left side and 2 Na atom are in right side. So to equate the Na atoms, we will multiply in NaOH by 2.
2NaOH + Zn → Na2ZnO2 + H2
(ii) And we shall check that other atoms are equal or not. If the other atoms are equal to both side then the equation is balanced. If the other atoms are not equal then we shall make them equal.
Now Na atoms are equal, Zn atoms are equal, H atoms are equal and O atoms are also equal on both sides. So the chemical equation is balanced.

A metal carbonate X on reacting with an acid gives a gas which when passed through a solution Y gives the carbonate back. On the other hand, a gas G that is obtained at anode during electrolysis of brine is passed on dry Y, it gives a compound Z, used for disinfecting drinking water. Identify X, Y, G , and Z.NCERT - Science Exemplar
In the following schematic diagram for the preparation of hydrogen gas as shown in the figure, what would happen if the following changes are made?
(a) In place of zinc granules, same amount of zinc dust is taken in the test tube.
(b) Instead of dilute sulphuric acid, dilute hydrochloric acid is taken.
(c) In place of zinc, copper turnings are taken.
(d) Sodium hydroxide is taken in place of dilute sulphuric acid and the tube is heated.NCERT - Science Exemplar
When zinc metal is treated with a dilute solution of a strong acid, a gas is evolved, which is utilised in the hydrogenation of oil. Name the gas evolved. Write the chemical equation of the reaction involved and also write a test to detect the gas formed.NCERT - Science Exemplar
In order to study saponification reaction we first prepare 20% solution of sodium hydroxide. If we record the temperature of this solution just after adding sodium hydroxide flakes to water and also test its nature using litmus, it may be concluded that the process of making this solution is toScience - Board Papers
