No chemical reaction takes place when granules of a rusty-brown solid A are mixed with the powder of another solid B. However, when the mixture is heated, a reaction takes place between its components. One of the products C is a metal and settles down in the molten state while the other product D floats over it. It was observed that the reaction is highly exothermic.
(a) What could the solids A and B be?
(b) What are the products C and D most likely to be?
(c) Write the chemical equation for the reaction between A and B leading to the formation of C and D.
(d) What is the special name of such a reaction? State one use of such a reaction.
(e) Name any two types of chemical reactions under which the above reaction can be classified.
(b) The products C and D most likely to be iron and aluminium oxide respectively.
(c) The chemical equation for the reaction between A and B leading to the formation of C and D is like
Mention the physical states of all the reactants and products in this equation and indicate the heat change which takes place.
(d) The special name of such a reaction is Thermite reaction. One use of such a reaction is in Welding of broken pieces of heavy iron objects like railway tracks, etc.
(e) The two types of chemical reactions under which the above reaction can be classified are displacement reactions and Oxidation-reduction reactions.
