Question 1:
Write the units of ‘g’ and ‘G’.
SI unit of ‘g’ is m s-2 and that of ‘G’ is N m2 kg-2.

Question 2:
J. Chadwick discovered a subatomic particle which has no charge and has mass nearly equal to that of a proton. Name the particle and give its location in the atom. Answer:
The particle is called neutron. It is located in the nucleus of the atom.

Question 3:
You are provided with a fine white coloured powder which is either sugar or salt. How will you identify it without tasting ?
Salt is NaCI which is an ionic compound. Its solution reacts with a solution of silver nitrate (AgNO3) which is also ionic in nature, to give a precipitate of silver chloride. On the other hand, sugar is not ionic in nature and does not give this type of reaction. So, if we obtain a white precipitate on adding silver nitrate solution to the solution of the given substance, it is salt otherwise it is sugar.

Question 4:
Why do some children fall ill more frequently than others living in the same locality ? Answer:
Children living in same locality implies that they are exposed to same surroundings. However, some fall ill more frequently. This could be because they may be under-nourished which may result in poor immunity and hence their catching infections more easily.
Also personal hygiene, genetic make up etc., play a vital role.

Question 5:
“Every multicellular organism has arisen from a single cell.” Justify this statement.
Multicellular organisms are higher organisms and usually undergo sexual reproduction in which there is fusion of gametes from two parents involved. This is called fertilisation and results in formation of a single cell called zygote which undergoes cell division and differentiation to form a multicellular organism.

Question 8:
(a) A cork piece floats on water but an iron nail sinks in water. Why ?
(b) What is the difference between density of a substance and its relative density ? Write SI unit of both.
(a) A cork piece floats on water because its density is less than the density of water. On the other hand, an iron nail sinks because density of iron nail is greater than the density of water.


Relative density

Question 10:
State any four postulates of Dalton’s atomic theory of matter. Which of his postulates does not hold correct at present ?
The postulates of Dalton’s atomic theory of matter are :
(i) All matter is made of very tiny particles called atom.
(ii) Atoms of a given element are identical in mass and chemical properties.

CBSE Sample Papers for Class 9 Science Solved Set 3 11


(a) Both helium and beryllium have Helium is a noble gas whereas Beryllium is a metal, justify.
(b) Hydrogen exists in three isotopic forms. Why are the isotopes of hydrogen chemically alike ?
(a) Maximum capacity of the first orbit is 2 electrons. Therefore, helium having two electrons in the valence shell is stable and hence has no tendency to react.
Beryllium has two shells K and L. The maximum capacity of the L-shell is 8 whereas beryllium has only 2 electrons in the L-shell. It will therefore react with other beryllium atoms to form Be-Be bonds. It is therefore a metal.
(b) The three isotopes of hydrogen are ¹H1, ²H1 and ³H1. The chemical property of an element depends upon the number of protons. Since the number of protons in the isotopes is the same, the isotopes are chemically alike.

Question 12:

Question 15:
Rameshwar took the responsibility of his fields when his father got old. His father advised him to use farmyard manure over fertilisers but he wanted to use chemical fertilisers. His father told him about the adverse effects of chemical fertilisers to the nearby water bodies.
Rameshwar’s father encouraged him as his friends also use organic manure and careful and judicious use of chemical fertilisers.
(i) Why should chemical fertilisers be used carefully and judiciously ?
(ii) Manures are natural fertilisers. How can they be prepared in the Held ?
(iii) Why did Rameshwar’s father advise him ?
(i) Fertilisers should be applied carefully in terms of proper dose, time and observe pre and post application precautions for their complete utilisation. Continuous use of fertilisers in an area can destroy soil fertility because organic matter in the soil is not replenished and micro-organisms in the soil are harmed. Excess use of fertilisers can also lead to water pollution.
(ii) Manure is prepared by the decomposition of plant waste and animal excreta (cowdung). It helps in enriching soil with nutrients and organic matter. It improves the soil structure, increases water-holding capacity and avoids water logging. Based on kind of biological material used, manure can be broadly classified into compost or vermicompost and green manure.
(iii) Rameshwar’s father advised him so as he was concerned about the environment. He cares about other living beings and is a conscientious human being.

(a) Important uses of ultrasound in medical field are as follows :
(i) In a ultrasound scanner the ultrasonic waves are used for getting images of internal organs of the body such as liver, gall bladder, kidney, uterus etc. The technique is known as ultra sonography.
(ii) Echo cardiography is a medical diagnostic technique in which ultrasonic waves are used to construct the image of heart.
(iii) Powerful ultrasounds are used for treatment of kidney stones.

(i) (a) After water has started boiling, the heat supplied is used to increase the kinetic energy of the particles to convert into gaseous state. Therefore the temperature does not rise.
(b) Particles on the surface absorb energy from the surrounding and escape. Therefore
evaporation is a surface phenomenon.
(c) Particles in a gas have maximum kinetic energy. They are moving freely in all directions and thus space between particles is maximum in gases.

(b) by lowering the temperature.
