Properties of Carbon
- The element carbon is non-metal. Its symbol is C.
- Carbon is a versatile element. The percentage of carbon present in the earth’s crust in form of minerals is 0.02% and in atmosphere, as CO2 is 0.03%.
- All living things, like plants and animals, are made up of carbon-based compounds. Carbon always forms covalent bonds.
- The atomic number of carbon is 6.
Ionic Bond in Class 10 science chapter 4 notes
- Are usually crystalline solids (made of ions)
- Have high melting and boiling points
- Conduct electricity when melted
- Are mostly soluble in water and polar solvents
Covalent Bond in Class 10 science chapter 4 notes
Conditions for the formation of a covalent bond:
- The combining atoms should have 4 to 7 electrons in their valence shell.
- The combining atoms should not lose electrons easily.
- The combining atoms should not gain electrons readily.
- The difference in electronegativity of two bonded atoms should be low.
Properties of covalent compounds:
- Physical state: They are generally liquids or gases. Some covalent compounds may exist as solid.
- Solubility: They are generally insoluble in water and other polar solvents but soluble in organic solvents such as benzene, toluene etc.
- Melting and boiling points: They generally have low melting and boiling points.
- Electrical conductivity: Covalent compounds are generally poor conductor of electricity. This is because the electrons are shared between atoms and no charged particles are formed in these compounds.
Types of Formula for Writing Hydrocarbons:
- Molecular formula: It involves the actual number of each type of atom present in the compound.
- Structural formula: The actual arrangement of atoms is written in structural formula.
- Condensed formula: It is the shortened form of the structural formula.
- Properties of a homologous series: As the molecular mass increases in a series, physical properties of the compounds show a variation, but chemical properties which are determined by a functional group remain the same within a series.
- Homologous series of alkanes: General formula: CnH2n+ 2, where n = number of carbon atoms. CH4, C2H6, C3H8.
- Homologous series of alkenes: General formula: CnH2n, where n = number of carbon atoms. C2H4, C3H6, C4H8.

Single, Double and Triple Bonds and Their Strengths:
Bond Strength in Class 10 science chapter 4 notes
- The bond strength of a bond is determined by the amount of energy
- required to break a bond.
- The order of bond strengths when it comes to multiple bonds is:
- Triple bond>double bond>single bond
- This is to signify that the energy required to break three bonds is higher
- than that for two bonds or a single bond
Bond length in Carbon and its Compounds Class 10 Notes
- Bond length is determined by the distance between nuclei of the two atoms in a bond.
- The order of bond length for multiple bonds is: Triple bond<doublebond<single bond The distance between the nuclei of two atoms isleast when they are triple bonded.
Covalent Bonding of N, O with H and Polarity
- Ammonia has one lone pair.
- All three N-H covalent bonds are polar in nature.
- N atom is more electronegative than the H atom. Thus the shared pair of electrons lies more toward N atom.
- This causes the N atom to acquire a slight negative charge, and H atom a slight positive charge.
- Water has two lone pairs.
- The two O-H covalent bonds are polar in nature.
- O atom is more electronegative than the H atom. Thus the shared pair of electrons lies more toward O atom.
- This causes the O atom to acquire a slight negative charge, and H atom a slight positive charge.
Mp,Bp and Electrical Conductivity:
Covalent compounds Carbon and its Compounds Class 10 Notes

Carboxylic acids react with alcohols in presence of few drops of concentrated sulphuric acid as catalyst and form sweet-smelling compounds called ester.
Hydrolysis in Carbon and its Compounds Class 10 Notes
On heating with an acid or a base the ester forms back the original alcohol and carboxylic acid.
*Alkaline hydrolysis of ester is also called saponification.
Soaps and Detergents:
- Soap is sodium and potassium salt of carboxylic acids with long chain.
- Soaps are effective with soft water only and ineffective with hard water.
- Detergents are ammonium or sulphonate salts of carboxylic acids with long chain. They are effective with both soft as well as hard water.
An ionic part (hydrophilic) and a long hydrocarbon chain (hydrophobic) part constitutes the soap molecule.
Cleansing Action of Soaps :
Most dirt is oily in nature and the hydrophobic end attaches itself with dirt, while the ionic end is surrounded with molecules of water. This result in formation of a radial structure called micelles
