V. Short Questions & Answers:

1. How many valence electrons are there in carbon?
There are four valence electrons in carbon.

2. Who is called ‘Father of Modern Organic Chemistry’?
Friedrich Wohler is called the ‘Father of Modern Organic Chemistry’.

3. Which three resin codes are unsafe?
Resin code #3
Resin code #6
Resin code #7

4. Differentiate graphite and diamond.

Graphite Diamond
Each carbon has three covalent bonds. Each carbon has four covalent bonds.
Soft, slippery to touch and opaque. Hard, heavy and transparent.
It has planar layer of hexagon units. It has tetrahedral units linked in three dimension.
It is conductor of heat and electricity. It is non-conductor of heat and electricity.

5. What are saturated and unsaturated compounds called?
Saturated compounds are compounds which contain carbon-carbon and carbon-hydrogen single bonds. Unsaturated compounds contain carbon-carbon double bonds or triple bonds.

6. Carbon does not form Ionic compounds. Why?
Carbon has the tendency to share its four electron with other atoms to complete its octet. This is called tetravalency. Thus carbon can form four covalent bond with other elements. Hence it does not form Ionic compounds.
Carbon possesses a net charge which is due to strong electro negative atom present in compound.

7. What is the valency of carbon in carbon monoxide?
The valency of carbon in carbon monoxide is two.

8. Why are one-time use and throw away plastics harmful?
One-time use and throwaway plastics cause short and long term environmental damage. Half of all the plastics made today is used for throw away plastic items. These plastics block drains and pollute water bodies. One time use plastic causes health problems for humans, plants and animals.

9. Why does carbon exist mostly in combined state?
Carbon is found in both Free State and combined state. There are millions of organic compounds of carbon. As the same time carbon is constituent of many inorganic compounds. More than 5 million compounds are known at present. The number of carbon compounds alone is more than number of compounds of all the elements taken together because carbon has some unique feature such as catenation, Tetra valency, Multiple bonds, isomerism, Allotropy.

10. When a carbon fuel burns in less aerated room, it is dangerous to stay there, Why?
When carbon fuels undergo incomplete combustion (insufficient supply of oxygen), it results in the formation of carbon monoxide. It is released into the atmosphere from various sources like vehicle fuels, domestic fuels, industries, furnaces etc. Cigarette smoking also is a source of carbon monoxide.
When carbon fuel burns in less aerated room it releases carbon monoxide. This carbon monoxide is a toxic gas. It enters human body through breathing and affects the function of hemoglobin. Carbon monoxide displaces oxygen from hemoglobin and it stops its function leading to death.

11. Explain how dioxins are formed, which plastic type they are linked to and why they are harmful to humans.
Dioxins are formed by burning industries and domestic plastic wastes. They are linked to #3 PVC plastics.
In human beings they cause productive and developmental problems. They damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and also cause cancer.

12. Yugaa wants to buy a plastic water bottle. She goes to the shop and sees four different kinds of plastic bottles with resin code 1, 3, 5 and 7. Which one should she buy? Why?
She should buy plastic bottles with resin code #5 Name: Polypropylene
Code: PP
It is one of the safest plastics
