Due to paucity of time it would not be possible for us to provide the answers to all your queries. We are providing solutions to some your good queries. Try solving rest of the questions yourself and if you face any difficulty then do get back to us.

A-1) Gases can be liquefied by

  1. By applying high pressure. As gases are highly compressible, on applying high pressure, the molecules of a gas would come close, intermolecular forces would increase and it will condense into a liquid.
  2. By lowering the temperature. Gases can be converted into liquids by simple cooling. At very low temperatures, the gases convert to liquids.

A-3) The process of conversion of a liquid into its vapours at any temperature below its boiling point is known as evaporation. The rate of transformation of a liquid into vapours depends on various factors. They are:

  • Humidity - Air can hold only a certain amount of water vapour at a particular temperature. Therefore, if humidity is high, there is no space for more vapour. Hence, the rate of evaporation decreases with increase in humidity. 
  • Temperature - The rate of evaporation increases with increase in temperature. With an increase in the temperature, kinetic energy of the particles also increases and more and more particles are able to break through the force of attraction from other particles. Hence, they get converted into vapours.
  • Wind Speed - The rate of evaporation increases with an increase in the wind speed. This is because fast moving air takes away water vapours from the atmosphere, thereby decreasing its amount, and making room for more. As a result, more evaporation occurs.
  • Surface Area - Increase in the surface area increases the rate of evaporation. If the surface area is large, then there will be more molecules on the surface to turn into vapours.

A-4) Camphor, dry ice, naphthalene are the substances which undergo sublimation.
