class 9 atoms and molecules, class 9 science, class 9 science important questions and preparations tipsGet the CBSE Class 9th Science chapter, Atoms and Molecules: Important topics and questions to prepare for CBSE Class 9 Science Examination, 2017-2018. This will provide you with a very clear idea about what type of questions are being framed for the exam and from which topics. The pattern in which the Question Paper is set is quite different from the style in which the course structure is actually defined. Consider the below mentioned terms/questions at the time of preparation.

Check out the important terms/topics given below:

• Name of scientists who established the two important laws of chemical combinations?

• Write the chemical formulae of the given compounds:

       (i) Copper sulphate sodium carbonate

       (ii) Barium chloride sodium sulphate

       (iii) Lead nitrate sodium chloride

• Concept of law of conservation of mass and law of chemical combination with examples

• E = mc2 follows the law of conservation of mass or not

• Calculations based on numerical problems to make an agreement for the law of conservation of mass

• 2.8 gram of N2 gas was allowed to react with 0.6 gram of hydrogen gas to produce 3.4 gram of ammonia. Show that these observations are in agreement with the law of conservation of mass

• Postulates of Dalton’s atomic theory

• Law of definite proportion

• Which postulate of Dalton’s atomic theory is the result of the law of conservation of mass?

• Which postulate of Dalton’s atomic theory can explain the law of definite proportions?

• Full form of IUPAC

• Name of atoms and their symbols

• Homo atomic molecules and heteroatom molecules

• Concept of atomicity and its formula to calculate the same

• Definition of isotopes, isotones, and isobars with examples

• Identify the isotopes, isotones, and isobars from the given pairs

       a. (17Cl35, 17Cl37)

       b. (18Ar40, 20Ca 40)

       c. (6C13, 7N14 )

• Find the atomicity of chlorine if its atomic mass is 35.5 and molecular mass is 71

• Find the atomicity of ozone if its atomic mass is 16 and molecular mass is 48

• Concept of relative atomic mass and relative molecular mass

• Define 1 amu

• A very fine study about the mole concept. Different ways to calculate the number of moles

• Concept of ion formation and generation of positive and negative charges

• Cross valency concept to write the formula of compound

• Always focus on the concept given in your book rather than  different materials from different books or sites
