In this activity, When you add Zn granules(very small pieces of zinc) to the dilute HCl(Hydrochloric acid) then you will observe the rise in Temperature of the Conical Flask and also hydrogen gas will produce.

You can feel the heat just by touching the Conical Flask and for Testing the Hydrogen you can do a soap water test.

This is also an Exothermic Reaction as well as Displacement Reaction.

Questions Related to Activity 1.3 class 10th Science:-

Q. Why it is Recommended always to use Dilute Acids?

There are many reasons But according to your syllabus:

  • Because, If the Concentration of the Acid will be higher than it will be a More Exothermic Reaction and if the activity will not be completed in the presence of the right Mentor then it can be very harmful.
  • To prevent the danger. Because you all know how Acids are harmful If the concentration will be higher it can Even burn the skin. And to prevent Danger, we use the highly dilute Acid.

What happened when Zn Granules are added to the HCl/H2SO4?

Hope you find your answer in the above Activity Explanation.

Q. Why does the Iron nail become brownish in color and the blue color
of copper sulfate solution fade?

In this reaction, the Iron nail becomes brownish in color and the blue color of copper sulfate solution fade Because Iron displaces Cu (Copper) from its Positon (CuSO4) Copper Sulphate. Because Iron is more reactive than Copper and it easily displaces Cu(Copper) from Copper Sulphate(CuSO4).

And that’s why the color of CuSO4 solution changes from Blue color to ade because finally the solution of Copper sulfate was got to converted into Iron Sulphate (FeSO4).

Fe(s) + CuSO4(aq) → FeSO4(aq) + Cu(s)
