Is Matter around us pure?
Q.7: Which of the following materials fall in the category of a “pure substance”?
(d) Hydrochloric acid
(e) Calcium oxide
(a) Ice is the solid form of water that contains a compound of hydrogen and oxygen. In water, hydrogen and oxygen are combined in a fixed ratio and have properties different from hydrogen and oxygen. So, water is a pure substance that is formed by the combination of two elements. Thus, ice is a pure substance
(b) Milk is an emulsion that is formed when the fat particles are dispersed in water. So, it is a heterogeneous mixture. Thus, milk is not a pure substance.
(c) Iron is an element that contains one type of atom and cannot be broken down into simpler substances. Thus, iron is a pure substance.
(d) Hydrochloric acid is a compound that is formed by the combination of hydrogen and chlorine atoms. Thus, hydrochloric acid is a pure substance.
(e) Calcium oxide is a compound that is formed by combining oxygen and calcium atoms. Thus, it is a pure substance.
(f) Mercury is an element that contains one type of atom and cannot be broken down into simpler substances. Thus, mercury is a pure substance.
(g) Brick is made from clay, sand, concrete lime, etc, that are mixed to form a mixture that does not has a uniform composition. So, it forms a heterogeneous mixture. Thus, brick is not a pure substance.
(h) The wood consists of cell and cell wall which is made up of cellulose and hemicellulose that mixed to form a heterogeneous mixture Thus, wood is not a pure substance.
(i) The air is a homogeneous mixture because it contains mixtures of different gases like nitrogen gas, oxygen gas, and so on. Thus, the air is not a pure substance.

What our students and parents say about us!
Saiyam is using EduSaksham online courses from past one year. He is able to complete his tutorials, worksheets, and assignments on his own. Once he is done with worksheets, he can check his answers and if he has done any mistakes, then he can check the correct answers and explanations. They have been given so well that he is able to understand them himself and rarely he asks us for any clarification. He enjoys using the platform and has learned and improved a lot in Mathematics. I would recommend EduSaksham to all parents who want their kids to learn in a structured way and also enjoy the learning process.
Neeraj (Saiyam's Father)
I would like to thank Edusaksham on behalf of my son Aditya who attended " Math Olympiad crash course for 5 weeks". As per Aditya, this course helped him to understand new topics like Roman numerals and decimal places which were not taught in his school till date and had a better understanding of other topics. I personally thank EduSaksham for all the help and support.
Geeta Bansal (Aditya's Mother)
We had a good experience with EduSaksham. Because sheets are available online, Vedant enjoyed doing more and more sheets without any reminders. I could leave him on his own as he was very much motivated to cover the topics. Practice is very important in maths but it becomes difficult for us to prepare sheets, I am glad we found EduSaksham where in a lot of in a lot of sheets are available for practice and the quality of questions are also good. As it's a venture from IITians we could think of giving it a try and I am glad we tried
Shikha Chowdhary (Vedant's Mother)
I have grown up in a family where my father used to give me practice maths paper every day which I need to finish before I go to play. I think that strong foundation of solving new questions every day helped me to clear my IITJEE exam. But as working women, I always had time challenge to create practice Math papers for my daughter. Thanks to EduSaksham, their questions are so logical and conceptual that I don't feel the guilt of not creating practice questions by myself :). There are plenty of worksheet along with the tutorials for each chapter. It has made parents life easier :) And the best part is my daughter loves doing it. Thank you EduSaksham.
