Class 9 Science Experiments List

Practical should be conducted alongside the concepts taught in theory classes.

A. (Unit I Chapter 2) Preparation of:

  1. a true solution of common salt,sugar and alum
  2. a suspension of soil, chalk powder and fine sand in water
  3. a colloidal solution of starch in water and egg albumin/milk in water and distinguish between these on the basis of
  • transparency
  • filtration criterion
  • stability

B. (Unit I Chapter 2) Preparation of

  1. A mixture
  2. A compound using iron filings and sulphur powder and distinguishing between these on the basis of:
  • appearance, i.e., homogeneity and heterogeneity
  • behaviour towards a magnet
  • behaviour towards carbon disulphide as a solvent
  • effect of heat

<red> ❌ <red> (Unit I) Separation of the components of a mixture of sand, common salt and ammonium chloride (or camphor).

C. (Unit I Chapter 2) Perform the following reactions and classify them as physical or chemical changes

  1. Iron with copper sulphate solution in water
  2. Burning of magnesium ribbon in air
  3. Zinc with dilute sulphuric acid
  4. Heating of copper sulphate crystals
  5. Sodium sulphate with barium chloride in the form of their solutions in water.

D. (Unit II Chapter 5) Preparation of stained temporary mounts of (a) onion peel, (b) human cheek cells & to record observations and draw their labelled diagrams.

E. (Unit II Chapter 6) Identification of Parenchyma, Collenchyma and Sclerenchyma tissues in plants, striped, smooth and cardiac muscle fibres and nerve cells in animals, from prepared slides. Draw their labelled diagrams.

<green> ✔️ <green> F. (Unit I) Determination of the melting point of ice and the boiling point of water.

<green> ✔️ <green> G. (Unit I) Verification of the Laws of Reflection of Sound.

H. (Unit III Chapter 10) Determination of the density of solid (denser than water) by using a spring balance and a measuring cylinder.
