Question 190 Exercise

(a) Name two metals which occur in nature in free state as well as in combined state.

(b) Name one ore of manganese. Which compound of manganese is present in this ore? Also write its chemical formula.

(c) A zinc ore on heating in air forms sulphur dioxide. Describe briefly any two stages involved in the conversion of this concentrated ore into zinc metal.


(a) Copper and silver occur in nature in free states as well as in the combined state.

(b) Pyrolusite; Manganese dioxide; MnO2

(c) (i) Roasting: When zinc sulphide (zinc blende ore) is strongly heated in the air (roasted), it forms zinc oxide and sulphur dioxide.

2ZnS + 3O2 = 2ZnO + 2SO2

Zinc oxide obtained is heated with carbon to form zinc metal.

ZnO + C = Zn + CO2
