The chapter in the discussion will gain grounds and require further in-depth discussion in the upcoming few years for students planning to take up Science in their higher studies. Thus, the exercises that follow the chapter in the discussion have been divided into two parts, mainly – in-text questionnaire and NCERT questions.
While both of these parts have theoretical and application-based questions, each of these categories has its importance.
Carbon and Its Compounds – In-text exercises
Carbon and Its Compounds Exercise 1 –
This section will test a pupil’s knowledge of the electron dot structure of molecules like carbon dioxide and sulphur that students learned about in this chapter Carbon and its Compound.
Students will come to know about different types of electron structures formed by each chemical molecule. To gain an idea about how to draw electron dot structures, students may refer to our solutions for Chapter 4 Science Class 10.
Carbon and Its Compounds Exercise 2 –
This section from Carbon and its Compounds Class 10 will focus on testing a student’s knowledge of properties of carbon. Besides that, students are asked to draw structural isomers for organic compounds like ethanoic acid, butanone, and pentane, and so on. They will also have to write the formulas for each of these compounds.
Carbon and Its Compounds Exercise 3 –
The questions from this exercise are on chemical reactions. The questions are concept-based, and students need to possess a thorough understanding of in-text topics to solve them.
Our Class 10 Science Chapter 4 NCERT Solutions contain a proper detailed explanation to lend an appropriate clarity to students on this topic which will help them in all-around preparation for their exam.
Carbon and Its Compounds Exercise 4 –
Students have to distinguish between alcohol and carboxylic acid with the help of experiments. They will need to provide a written form of the experiment also.
This question from Ch 4 Science Class 10 will test their knowledge of chemical experiments and how each chemical reacts to being experimented upon. In this exercise, students are also questioned on oxidizing agents.
Carbon and Its Compounds Exercise 5 –
In exercise 5, students are questioned on chemical properties and uses of everyday items like soaps and detergents. Pupils have to provide reasons as to why clothes are agitated to make them clean and whether detergents can check if the water is hard or soft.
Answering these questions will help the students to link their knowledge of chemistry with everyday things happening around them.
Carbon and Its Compounds – NCERT Exercises
Carbon and Its Compounds Question 1 to 3 –
To answer these questions, students are required to possess a firm knowledge of the composition of each chemical compound and its functional group.
The students can take the help of our solved study guide on Carbon and it’s Compound Class 10 if they want to know more about functional groups of chemical compounds.
Considering that these are everyday-application based questions, such questions lend in a different perspective to the students.
Carbon and Its Compounds Question 5 –
In this question, a student has to explain the nature of the covalent bond. For a complete explanation of this question, a student can refer to our solutions for Carbon and Its Compounds.
Carbon and Its Compounds Question 6 –
Students are required to define homologous series with an example. This question has been adequately analyzed with a befitting formula and examples in our NCERT Solutions for Class 10 Science Chapter 4.
Carbon and Its Compounds Question 7 and 8 –
These two questions are purely theoretical. They have to differentiate between Ethanol and Ethanoic acid based on their chemical and physical properties. Students will learn the various aspects of organic compounds after answering this question. Answering question 8 will give the students an idea about the process of electrolytic refining of metals.
Carbon and Its Compounds Questions 9 to 12 –
Questions 9 to 12 of Class 10 Science Chapter 4 are text-based questions. A student needs to have a thorough understanding of this chapter to answer these questions.
In question 9, students have to list the reasons why Carbon and Its Compounds are used as fuels for applications.
Question 10 asks students to explain scum formation when soap is used with hard water. Answering this question will boost a student’s knowledge of chemical reactions.
For the next question, a student needs to test litmus paper with soap and note down the changes that occurred.
Students have to discuss in detail the process of hydrogenation and its industrial application for question 12.
Carbon and Its Compounds Questions 13 to 15 –
In question 13, a student needs to mention which hydrocarbons undergo addition reaction. A student will learn about different types of hydrocarbons that exist after solving this question.
A student can put his/her theoretical knowledge of chemistry to test by conducting practical experiments. Question 15 requires a student to describe in detail the cleansing action of soaps. Students can look up our solved questions answer of Ch. 4 Science Class 10, which has been prepared with care by our expert faculty if they need a detailed clarification in any of the above questions.
Vedantu seeks to change the way the education system has been functioning for years. We have reimagined the teaching process and streamlined it in a way that it can aid a student in every way.
Our in-house faculty holds online interactive classes for individuals and groups where students can communicate with them in real-time. With interesting features like
two-way audio-video and
-it is similar to a real-life classroom. Our faculty teachers coach students preparing for other competitive exams beside school board exams
Apart from holding classes, Vedantu also provides study guides for all NCERT books like solved question answers for Carbon and its Compounds from class 10 Science books.
