Other questions in this quiz

2. What is limescale?

  • Calcium Nitrate
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Calcium Sulphate

3. How would you carry out an experiment to compare hardness of water samples?

  • Add 100cm3 of sample water to a conical flask. Under a microscope cound the number of ions present and record their number.
  • Add 100 cm3 of sample water to a conical flask. Add 1cm3 soap solution to the water, put a bung in and shake. Repeat until a good lasting leather is formed ( bubbles cover the surface for atleast 30 seconds). Record how much soap was used.
  • Add 100 cm3 of sample water to a conical flask. Taste it and record the flavour.
  • Add 100cm3 of sample water to a conical flask. Boil the water to 105 degrees celcius. Let it evapourate. Measure the amount of limescale produced.

4. Which ions cause hardness in water?

  • Nitrate ions in Calcium/Magnesium Nitrate
  • Hydrogencarbonate ions in Calcium/Magnesium hydrogencarbonate
  • Carbonate ions in Calcium/Magnesium carbonate

5. What kind of hardness will be removed by boiling of the water?

  • Temporary Hardness
  • Permanent Hardness
