Answer: Yellow fever.

2 :—————, :————— , :————–are called green house gases (Fleming / lenis pastor)

3. Name a substance which can be used as an antiseptic as well as disinfectant?

Answer: Garlic, Turmeric, Aloe vera.

4. What are the main constituents of dettol?

Answer: Mixture of chloroxylenol and terpineol

5. Name the unit in which the calorific value of a fuel is expressed?

(iii) Explosion

7. What are the essential requirements for producing fire?

Answer: Fuel, Heat and Oxygen.

VII Short Answer Questions

1. Why should not medicines be taken without consulting doctors?

Answer: One should not take medicines without consulting doctors because if a wrong medicine is accidently eaten for a disease, it may not cure the disease but actually can have harmful side effects to the body.

2. Why do antiseptics differ from disinfectants? Give one example of each.

Answer: Difference between Antiseptic and Disinfectants


1. All antiseptic are disinfectants.

2. It can be applied on the live tissue

3. E.g. skin / Mucous


1.All disinfectants are not antiseptic

2. It can be apply on in animate object

3. E.g. Surface, lab working tables, floor.

3. What is ignition temperature?

Answer: The minimum temperature at which a substance catches fire and burns is called its ignition temperature.

4. If 4.5kg of fuel is completely burnt and amount of heat produced stands measured at 1, 80,000 KJ what is the calorific value.

Answer: Amount of fuel = 4.5 kg

           Heat produced = 1,80,000 kJ

              Calorific value = ?

Solution :

Calorific Value = Heat produced /Amount of fuel = 1,80,000 / 4 .5 = 40,000

  Calorific Value = 40,000 KJ / kg.

VIII Answer in Detail

1. Explain briefly about antibiotic and analgesic?



(i) Many micro organisms and plants synthesize chemicals which are toxic in nature to protect them from invading organisms.

(ii) Those biosynthesized chemicals can be isolated from the plants/micro organisms and was used as medicines against infectious diseases, these substances were called as antibiotics.

(iii) Ex: Chloramphenicols, tetracyclines, Penicillin derivatives, cephalosporin’s and their derivatives.

(iv) The world’s first antibiotic penicillin was discovered by Dr. Alexander Fleming.


(i) Analgesics or pain killers that react like the pain-suppressing chemicals released by the body.

(ii) They suppress the feeling of ‘pain’.

(iii) This analgesics drug selectively relieves pain by acting either in CNS (Central Nerves System) or on peripheral pain mechanism, without significantly altering consciousness.

2. Make labeled diagram of a candle flame.

IX  Picture based question

Arul and Aakash were doing an experiment in which water was to be heated in a beaker. Arul kept the beaker near the wick in the yellow part of candle flame. Aakash kept the beaker in the outer most part to the flame. Whose water will get heated in a shorter time?

Answer: The water heated by Akash will get heated in a shorter time because he kept his beaker near the hottest (non luminous) zone of the flame. But Arul kept the beaker in the luminous zone which is moderately hot. So, it will take longer time.

Student Activities


What happens when you add with these chemicals?

Sugar + Potassium permanganate+ Glycerin.


(i) After adding sugar, potassium permanganate and glycerin to the dish, immediately step back because spark and solid potassium permanganate will be expelled from the dish.

(ii) When potassium permanganate mixes with glycerin, a redox reaction starts. This reaction starts out really slow, but produces a lot of heat, so it will start to speed up bit by bit. As the potassium permanganate oxidises the sugar, it will speed up more and more until it finally starts to smoke and after that it will ignite.


The first local anesthetic was cocaine was isolated from coca leaves by Albert Niemannin

1. Dettol

Mixture of chloroxylenol and terpincol

2. Tincture

Iodine + 2 to 3% alcohol – Water mixture Soap, Iodoform,

phenolic solutions, ethanol, Boric acid, are examples.


Fire chemical Reaction

Oxygen + Heat + Fuel = Fire
