Question

In burning a matchstick we see that there is a chemical reaction involved in which red phosphorus is converted to:


  1. Ignite antimony disulphide

  2. Converts into white phosphorus.

  3. None of these

  4. Reacts with potassium chlorate


Solution

The correct option is B

Converts into white phosphorus.


When we burn the matchstick the red phosphorus is converted to white phosphorus which finally gives fire. White phosphorus is spontaneously combustible and catches fire as soon as it comes in contact with oxygen
