“We need to balance a skeletal chemical equation.” Give reason to justify this statement.
Balanced chemical equation: A chemical equation in which the number of atoms of reactants are equal to the number of atoms of products is called a balanced equation.
We need to balance a skeletal chemical equation because:
i. According to the law of conservation of mass, mass (or atoms) are neither created nor destroyed in chemical reactions.
ii. It means the total mass of the products formed in chemical reaction must be equal to the mass of reactants consumed.
Rate this question :
i. Give an example for a combination reaction which is exothermic.
ii. Identify the oxidising agent, reducing agent in the following reaction:
H2S + Cl2⇒ 2HCl + S
iii. Name the phenomenon due to which the taste and smell of oily food changes when kept for a long time in open. Suggest one method to prevent it.Xam idea - Science
In one of the industrial processes used for manufacture of sodium hydroxide, a gas X is formed as by-product. The gas X reacts with lime water to give a compound Y which is used as a bleaching agent in chemical industry. Identify X and Y giving the chemical equation of the reactions involved.Xam idea - Science
(a) What are X, Y and Z?

Write the balanced chemical equations for the following reactions.
a. Sodium carbonate on reaction with hydrochloric acid in equal molar concentrations gives sodium chloride and sodium hydrogen carbonate.
b. Sodium hydrogen carbonate on reaction with hydrochloric acid gives sodium chloride, water and liberates carbon dioxide.
c. Copper sulphate on treatment with potassium iodide precipitates cuprous iodide (Cu2I2), liberates iodine gas and also forms potassium sulphate.Xam idea - Science
(a) What could metal X be?
