In an experiment, 4.90 g of copper oxide was obtained form 3.92 g of copper. In another experiment, 4.55 g of copper oxide gave, on reduction, 3.64 g of copper. Show with the help of calculations that these figures verify the law of constant proportions.
According to question-
So, 1 equivalent of Cu reacts with 0.25 equivalent of O2 to form 1.25 equivalent of copper oxide.
Here again, one can see that 1.25 equivalent of CuO decomposed to form 1 equivalent of Cu and 0.25 equivalent of oxygen.
Hence, law of constant proportion is verified.

A liquid compound X of molecular mass 18 u can be obtained from a number of natural sources. All the animals and plants need liquid X for their survival. When an electric current is passed through 200 grams of pure liquid X under suitable conditions, then 178 grams of gas Y and 22 grams of gas Z are produced. Gas Y is produced at the positive electrode whereas gas Z is obtained at the negative electrode. Moreover, gas Y supports combustion whereas gas Z burns itself causing explosions.
(a) Name (i) liquid X (ii) gas Y, and (iii) gas Z
(b) What is the ratio to the mass of element Z to the mass of element Y in the liquid X?
(c) Which law of chemical combination is illustrated by this example?
(d) Name two sources of liquid X.
(e) State an important use of Y in our life.Lakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur - Chemistry
One of the forms of a naturally occurring solid compound P is usually used for making the floors of houses. On adding a few drops of dilute hydrochloric acid to P, brisk effervescence are produced. When 50 g of reactant P was heated strongly, than 22 g of a gas Q and 28 g of a solid R were produced as products. Gas Q is the same which produced brisk effervescence on adding dilute HCl to P. Gas Q is said to cause global warming whereas solid R is used for white-washing.
(a) What is (i) solid P (ii) gas Q, and (iii) solid R.
(b) What is the total mass of Q and R obtained from 50 g of P?
(c) How does the total mass of Q and R formed compare with the mass of P taken?
(d) What conclusion do you get from the comparison of masses of products and reactant?
