Answers of NCERT Science In-text Questions  
Q.1: What would be the electron dot structure of carbon dioxide which has the formula CO2 ?
Answer: The electron dot structure of Carbon dioxide (CO2) is given below:
Q.2: What would be the electron dot structure of a molecule of sulphur which is made up of eight atoms of sulphur ?
Answer: The 8 atoms of sulphur molecule (S8) are joined together in the form of a ring as shown below:

Q.3: How many structural isomers can you draw for pentane ?
Answer: There are three structural isomers of pentane as given below:

Q.4: What are the two properties of carbon which lead to the huge number of carbon compound we see around us ?
Answer: The two properties of carbon are – (a) Catenation and (b) Tetra Covalency or Tetravalency of carbon atom.
Catenation is the unique property of carbon due to which carbon atoms can link among themselves to form a straight, branched or close chain. Due to tetravalency, the carbon atoms can form single, double or triple covalent bond. This is why carbon leads to form a huge number of carbon compounds.    
Q.5: What will be the formula and electron dot structure of cyclopentane ?
Answer: The formula of cyclopeptane is C5H10.

Q.6: Draw the structure for following compounds: (a) Ethanoic acid (b) Bromopentane (c) Butanone (d) Hexanal.
Q.7: How would name the following compounds ? 
Answer: (i) Bromo-ethane (ii) Methanal (iii) Hex 1-yne.
Q.8: Why is the conversion of ethanol to ethanoic acid an oxidation reaction ?

Here, in this reaction there is a decrease in the number of hydrogen along with increase in number of oxygen atoms in compound. Therefore, it is an oxidation reaction.  
Q.9: A mixture of oxygen and ethyne is burnt for welding. Can you tell why a mixture of ethyne and air is not taken ?
Answer: Air contains nitrogen and other inactive gaseous contents which resist the adequate supply of oxygen for burning of ethyne. Ethyne is an unsaturated hydrocarbon. If we use a mixture of ethyne and air then incomplete combustion of ethyne takes place with a sooty flame and also high temperature required for welding is not achieved. But if it is burnt with oxygen it produces clan flame with very high temperature due to complete combustion.
Therefore, air is taken for burning of ethyne for welding.   
Q.10: How can you distinguish experimentally between an alcohol and a carboxylic acid ?    
Answer: We can distinguish experimentally between an alcohol and a carboxylic acid by using laboratory reagent Na2CO3 solution as follows:
(i) When Na2CO3 is added to the test tube containing CH3COOH, CO2 gas evolves which turn the lime water milky.
(ii) When Na2CO3 is added to the test tube containing CH3COOH, no gas is evolved.       
Q.11: Would you be able to check if water is hard by using a detergent ?
Answer: No, it is impossible because detergent is effective in both hard water and soft water.
Q.12: People use a variety of methods to wash clothes. Usually after adding the soap, they beat the clothes on a stone, or beat it with a paddle, scrub with a brush or the mixture is agitated in a washing machine. Why is agitation necessary to get clean clothes ? 
Answer: A soap molecule has two parts:
(i) Hydrophobic part i.e. the hydrocarbon tail which is insoluble in water and repelled by water.
(ii) Hydrophilic part i.e. negatively charged end which is soluble in water.
With the help of these parts, soap can attach grease and dirt particles and form spherical clusters known as “micelle”. Due to ion-ion repulsion these micelles remain suspended as a colloid in the water. In order to remove these micelles containing the dirt, it is necessary to scrub or agitate the clothes.  
Q.13: Why is detergent a better cleansing agent than soap ?
Answer: Detergent a better cleansing agent than soap because detergent acts better even in hard water.
Q.14: Which causes water pollution, detergent or soap ?  ?     
Answer: Detergent causes water pollution as detergents are non-biodegradable.    
Q.15: Why does not soap form lather with hard water ?
Answer: Soap reacts with hard water to form scum and acts to remove the hardness of water. So, lather is not formed by soap with hard water.
