A student takes a mixture of sand and ammonium chloride in china dish and heats it under a funnel fitted with a plug over a flame. He would observe that: (1) solid sand gets deposited on the lower cooler parts of the funnel while solid ammonium chloride remains in the china dish. (2) sand and ammonium chloride get deposited on hotter parts of the funnel. (3) ammonium chloride gets deposited on the cooler parts of the funnel and sand remains in the china dish. (4) sand collects on cooler parts of the funnel while ammonium chloride melts in the china dish.

 Answer: (3) Sand is a non-sublimable solid and ammonium chloride is a sublimable solid. Being a sublimable solid, ammonium chloride changes directly from the solid to the gaseous state on heating, and gets deposited on the cooler parts of the funnel. On the other hand, sand remains in the china dish.
