Q:

Which of the Following is an Amorphous solid?

A) Quartz Glass(Sio2) B) Chrome Alum
C) Silicon Carbide(SiC) D) Graphite
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Quartz Glass(Sio2)

Explanation:

An amorphous or non-crystalline solid is a solid that lacks the long-range order that is characteristic of a crystal. In Brief, An amorphous solid is any noncrystalline solid in which the atoms and molecules are not organized in a definite lattice pattern. Such solids include glass, plastic, and gel.

Quartz glass (SiO2) is an amorphous solid due to its short range order of constituent particles. Note Quartz is a crystalline solid while quartz glass is an amorphous solid.

Q:

which of the following are chemical changes?

A) Cooking of Food

B) Digestion of Food

C) Freezing of water

D) Water is heated up

A) A & B B) A, B & C
C) C & D D) All the above
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) A & B

Explanation:

A) Cooking of Food  ------ Chemical Change

B) Digestion of Food ----- Chemical Change

C) Freezing of water ----- Physical Change

D) Water is heated up ---- Physical Change

because here the chemical composition of the substance changes in A & B only.

 

Since we know that, If the chemical composition is changing then it is a chemical change and if the chemical composition is remaining the same, then it is a physical change.
