ANSWER THESE

Q. What do you mean by good and poor conductor of electricity?
Good conductors of electricity allow electric current to flow through them easily, while poor conductors hinder the flow of electric current.

 

Q. Why distilled water is poor conductor while tap water is good conductor of electricity?
Distilled water is a poor conductor because it lacks dissolved ions, whereas tap water contains dissolved salts and minerals, making it a good conductor.

 

Q. What do you mean by chemical effect of electric Current?
The chemical effect of electric current refers to the chemical reactions that occur when an electric current passes through a conducting solution, leading to changes such as gas bubble formation, metal deposition, or changes in solution color.

 

Q. What are the main reasons of doing electroplating?
Electroplating is done to coat one metal with another, for purposes like corrosion resistance, aesthetics, and improving conductivity.

 

Q. Name some electroplated objects available in your surrounding by making a list.
Objects that are commonly electroplated include jewelry, silverware, car parts, kitchen faucets, and bicycle handlebars.
