Important Questions on Class 6 Science Chapter 3

Why do we need to separate different components of a mixture?

Before using a substance, we need to separate harmful or non-useful substances that may be mixed with it. Sometimes, we separate even useful components if we need to use them separately. For example: We used to separate slightly larger sized impurities like the pieces of dirt, stone, and husk from wheat, rice or pulses by handpicking method. Rice or pulses are usually washed before cooking. When we add water to these, the impurities like dust and soil particles get separated.

How will you separate husk or dirt particles from a given sample of pulses before Cooking?

Husk or bigger pieces of dirt particles can be removed from a sample of pulses by handpicking.

What is sieving? Where is it used?

Sieving is the process of filtering components of a mixture of different sizes. Sieving allows fine particles to pass through the holes of the sieve, while the bigger impurities remain on the sieve. Sieving is used in flour mills to separate broken particles of grains from flour. It is also used at construction sites to separate lumps, smaller stones from the mixture of sand and cement.

Fill up the blank: The method of separating seeds of paddy from its stalks is called ___________.

The method of separating seeds of paddy from its stalks is called threshing.
