Selina Concise ICSE Solutions for Class 7 Chemistry Chapter 5 Language of Chemistry
Points to Remember :
- A chemical reaction involves the transformation of original substance into an altogether new substance(s).
- A chemical reaction can be represented with the help of the symbols or the formulae of the elements and the compounds taking part in that reaction. This gives a chemical equation.
- Certain necessary conditions for a chemical reaction to happen are close contact, solution form, heat, light and catalyst.
- Characteristics of chemical reactions are change of colour, evolution of a gas, formation of a precipitate, change of state, change of smell and evolution/absorption of heat.
- A complete chemical equation symbolically represents the reactants, products and their physical states.
- The substances that react with each other are called reactants and they are represented on the left hand side of the equation. The substances that are formed as a result of the reaction are called products. They are represented on the right hand side of the equation.
- A chemical equation needs to be balanced to make it follow the law of the conservation of mass.
- The law of conservation of mass states that mass can be neither created nor destroyed, it can only be transformed from one form to another.
- A chemical equation gives both qualitative and quantitative information about the reactants and products.
(a) Define chemical reaction.
(b) What is a chemical equation?
(c) Why do we need to balance chemical equations?
(a) Chemical reaction : Any chemical change in matter which involves its transformation into one or more new substances is called a chemical reaction.
(b) Chemical equation : A chemical equation is the symbolic representation of a chemical reaction using the symbols and the formula of the substances involved in the reaction.
(c) A chemical equation needs to be balanced so as to make the number of the atoms of the reactants equal to the number of the atoms of the products.
State four conditions necessary for chemical reactions to take place.
Conditions necessary for chemical reactions :
- Close contact
- Solution form
3. Differentiate between :
(a) Reactants and products.
(b) Chemical reaction and chemical equation.
|Chemical reaction||Chemical Equation|
|Any chemical change in matter which involves its transformation into one or more new substances is called a chemical reaction.||A chemical equation is the symbolic representation of a chemical reaction using the symbols and the formula of the substances involved in the reaction.|
(c) A balanced and a skeletal chemical equation.
A balanced chemical equation is one in which the number of atoms each element on the reactant side is equal to the number of atoms of that element on the product side.
In a skeletal equation the number of atoms on reactant side are not equal to number of atoms of product side.

(c) 2FeCl2 + Cl2 → 2FeCl3
(d) 2CO + O2 → 2CO2
(e) 2Ca + O2 → 2CaO
(f) 4Na + O2 → 2Na2O
(g) 2NaOH + H2SO4 → Na2SO4 + 2H2O
(h) 2AgBr → 2Ag + Br2

(a) FeS + 2HCl → FeCl2 + H2S
(b) Na2CO3 + 2HCl → 2NaCl + H2O + CO2
(c) 2H2+ O2 → 2H2O
(d) Na2O + H2O → 2NaOH
