Question: 5
Nate two ores of copper.
Answer: 5
Copper glance Cu2S Chalcopyrite CuFeS2
Question: 6
State Urea formation:
Answer: 6
When ammonium carbonate is evaporated with the help of steam. It dehydrates to form Urea. NH3COONH4 ⟼ NH2CONH2 + H2O
Question: 7
Define principle of froth floatation.
Answer: 7
Froth flotation is based on the wetting characteristics of the ore and gangue particles with oil and water respectively.
Question: 8
Define principle of solvay's process.
Answer: 8
Principle of solvay's process lies in low solubility of sodium bicarbonate at low temperature. ie.e. 15 oc when, CO2 is passed through an ammoniacal solution of NaCl called brine only NaHCO3 precipitate.
Question: 9
Give names of raw material used in Urea manufacturing?
Answer: 9
Ammonia Carbon dioxide
Question: 10
Define blister copper.
Answer: 10
the molten matte is shifted from converter to sand moulds and is allowed to cool.the dissolved gases escape out forming blister on the surface of solid copper. It is called blister copper. It is 98% pure copper.
Question: 11
Give two advantages of solvay's process.
Answer: 11
1. Carbon dioxide and ammonia are recovered and reused. 2. Sodium carbonate of very high purity is obtained.
Question: 12
Which fraction of petroleum is used in the form of LPG?
Answer: 12
Liquid petroleum gas.
Question: 13
Define Metallurgy.
Answer: 13
The process of extraction of a metal in pure form on a large scale with minimum case from its ore by physical or chemical mean is called metallurgy.
Question: 14
