Q.3:- Give reasons for the following observations :
(a) Naphthalene balls disappear with time without leaving any solid.
(b) We can get the smell of perfume sitting several metres away.

 

Answer:-

(a): Naphthalene balls disappear with time without leaving any solid because they undergo sublimation i.e., they directly change into vapour without passing through the liquid state.



(b): We can get the smell of perfume sitting several metres away due to diffusion. The perfumes contain solvent which carries pleasant smelling vapour. They diffuse quite fast and can reach a person sitting several metres away.
