Explain Activity 1.3 Class 10 NCERT Science

In this post, you will learn a complete explanation of activity 1.3 class 10 science that belongs to chapter 1 Chemical Reactions and Equations.

Explain Activity 1.3 Class 10 NCERT Science


Caution: This activity needs the teacher’s assistance. Handle the acid with care.

Activity - Take a few zinc granules in a conical flask or a test tube. Add dilute hydrochloric acid or sulphuric acid to this.

Do you observe anything happening around the zinc granules? Touch the conical flask or test tube. Is there any change in its temperature?

Explain Activity 1.3 Class 10 NCERT Science

Observation and Conclusion: Hydrogen gas is produced and the conical flask gets hot due to the action of dil. H2SO4. The presence of hydrogen gas can be observed in the form of bubbles accompanied by brisk effervescence.

Zn(s)  +      H2SO4 (aq)   →    ZnSO4 (aq)    + H2(g) ↑

(Zinc)      (Sulphuric acid)      (Zinc sulphate)      (Hydrogen)

After the above reaction, we can feel an increase in temperature in the flask.
