# Question: Which stoichiometric defect in crystals decreases the density of

a solid?
[1 mark] [ 2011]
Answer:Schottky defect.( As Schotky defect is due to missing of cation and
anion from its position.)

## Question: ‘Crystalline solids are anisotropic in nature’. What does this

statement mean?
[1 mark] [ 2011]
Answer: Anisotropic means when properties of crystal is viewed from different x,y and z coordinates,
it shows different properties .It means that some of the physical properties of
crystalline solids such as refractive index, electrical conductivity,
thermal expansion, etc. show different values when measured along different
directions in the same crystal.

Z
Crystalline – Anisotropic nature –properties are different in
all directions.

## Question: What is meant by'doping' in a semiconductor?

[1 mark] [ 2012]
Answer:Doping is the process of increasing the conductivities of the
intrinsic semiconductors by adding suitable impurity.x

electrical properties.

## Question: Write a point of distinction between a metallic solid and an

ionic solid other than metallic luster.

## Question: What type of substances would make better Permanent Magnets,

Ferromagnetic or Ferrimagnetic?
[1 mark] [ 2013]

## Answer: Ferromagnetic substance would make better permanent magnets than

ferrimagnetic substances because in the first case, the spins due to all
unpaired electrons are alligned parallel. On the other hand, in
ferrimagnetic substances, the electron spins are alligned both in the
parallel and antiparallel directions in unequal number, so when the
ferromagnetic substance is placed in a magnetic field, all the domains get
oriented in the direction of the magnetic field producing strong magnetic
effect.This arrangement of domains persist even when the magnetic field is
removed and the ferromagnetic substance becomes a permanent magnet.

Question 9:
(a) Why does presence of excess of lithium makes L iCl crystals pink?
(b) A solid with cubic crystal is made of two elements P and Q. Atoms of Q
are at the corners of the cube and P at the body-centre. What is the
formula of the compound? [2 marks] [ 2013]

(a) Presence of metal excess defect results due to presence of e– at the
position of –ve ions this results in Formation of F-centre and LiCl become
pink
Excess Lithium atoms losses electron to form Li+ ions, Cl-ions from the
crystal diffuse on the surface and combine with ionized Li to form LiCl The
released unpaired electrons occupy the anionic sites known as F- centres.
The pink color is formed because of the excitation of these electrons when
they absorb energy from visible light falling on them.

Question:
(i) Write the type of magnetism observed when the magnetic moments are
aligned in parallel and anti- parallel directions in unequal numbers.
(ii) Which stoichiometric defect decreases the density of the crystal?
[2 marks] [ 2014]

(i).x

## Ferrimagnetism is observed when the magnetic moments are aligned in

parallel and anti- parallel directions in unequal numbers

## (ii) Due to Schottky defect vacancies are formed and density

decreases

Vacancy Defects: When some lattice sites left vacant while the formation of
crystal, the defect is called vacancy defects. In vacancy defects, an atom
is missing from its regular atomic site. Because of missing of atom the
density of substance decreases, i.e., because of vacancy defects.

Answer: (i) Schottky defect, as equal number of cations and anions are
missing.
(ii) The density of the crystal decreases as ions are missing from crystal
lattice.
(iii) Highly ionic substances with almost comparable size of cation and
anion show this defect, e.g. KCl .

## Question: What is a semiconductor? Describe the two main types of

semiconductors and explain mechanisms for their conduction.[3 marks] [
2016]

## Answer:The solids with intermediate conductivities between insulators and

conductors are termed semiconductors.
(i) n- type semiconductor : It is obtained by doping Si or Ge with a group
15 element like P. Out of5 valence electrons , only 4 are involved in bond
formation and the fifth electron is delocalizedand can be easily provided
to the conduction band. The conduction is thus mainly caused by the
movement of electron.
(ii) p - type semiconductor : It is obtained by doping Si or Ge with a
group 13 element like Gallium which contains only 3 valence electrons. Due
to missing of 4th valence electron, electron hole or electron vacancy is
created The movement of these positively charged hole is responsible for
the conduction.
