Define the boiling point of the liquid:

Explanation

The boiling point of the liquid is the temperature at which the vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to the pressure of the atmosphere on the liquid.

Short Answer Question▾

Write in Short

Which points shows the melting point of the substance?

Explanation

B and C. Because melting point is the temperature at which a given substance melts, hence in given a heating curve of substance, at points B and C, the substance starts melt and becoming in liquid form.

Write in Short

Which points shows the boiling points of the substance?

Explanation

D and E. The definition of the boiling point is given as, the temperature at which a liquid boils and turns to vapor. At point D and E substance converts from liquid to gas.

Write in Short

Define half – life of radioactive substance and give appropriate formula for half – life time.

Explanation

Half – life of radioactive substance is defined as, “The time required for amount of radioactive substance to fall to half of its initial value. ”

The exponential decay can be described by following equation,

N(t)=N0eλt

Where, N = Quantity of the radioactive substance still remaining after a time t

N0= Initial quantities of the radioactive substance

λ= Radioactive decay constant

Now, for half life time,

N02=N0eλt12

ln(12)=λt12lne

ln2=λt12

t12=0.693λ
