The following Topics and Sub-Topics are covered in this chapter and are available on MSVgo:
The most widely used concepts in Physics are Work Energy And Power. They’re most definitely the first thing you studied in physics class. Work and energy may be conceived of as two sides of a common coin.
Salt is an ionic compound that occurs from the neutralisation of acids and bases. Salts are formed by positively charged ions (known as cations) and negatively charged ions (known as anions), which may be organic or inorganic in nature. These ions are present in a proportional quantity, thereby making the nature of the salt neutral.
It is found in significant amounts in seawater, where it is the main mineral component. Salt is important to animal life, and saltiness is one of the simple human tastes. Salt is an ionic compound with a cation other than H+ and anion other than OH– and is generated along with water in the neutralisation reaction between acids and bases.
The compound sodium chloride has very different properties from the sodium and chlorine elements.
The procedure used for laboratory preparation of salt relies on the solubility of the salt in the water. A soluble salt can be prepared by a reaction between an acid and a metal, a base or a carbonate.
Chemical decomposition is the splitting or dissolution of a single chemical compound into simpler compounds or their elementary components. This can be described as the exact opposite of chemical synthesis. For example:
In this chapter, we learnt about the concepts of acids, bases and salts. We also learnt about the types and properties of salts. The chapter also gave us knowledge of the laboratory preparation of salts.
