Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Water is very dynamic.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • C.

      Sometimes

    • D.

      Hardly

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Water is considered to be very dynamic because it can exist in three different states: solid (ice), liquid (water), and gas (water vapor). It can easily change from one state to another depending on the temperature and pressure conditions. Additionally, water is constantly moving and flowing, whether it is in the form of rivers, oceans, or even in the atmosphere as clouds. This dynamic nature of water is essential for various natural processes and plays a crucial role in shaping the Earth's surface and supporting life.

    What causes ice to melt?

    • A.

      Heat

    • B.

      Vapour

    • C.

      Evaporation

    • D.

      Transpiration

    Correct Answer
    A. Heat
    Explanation
    When ice is exposed to heat, it absorbs the thermal energy, causing the ice molecules to gain energy and vibrate more rapidly. This increase in molecular motion disrupts the rigid structure of the ice, causing it to break down and melt into liquid water. Therefore, heat is the primary cause of ice melting.

    What is the boiling point of water in kelvin scale?

    • A.

      373K

    • B.

      273K

    • C.

      250K 

    • D.

      100K

    Correct Answer
    A. 373K
    Explanation
    The boiling point of water in the Kelvin scale is 373K. This is because the Kelvin scale starts at absolute zero, which is the lowest possible temperature. The boiling point of water is the temperature at which it changes from a liquid to a gas, and in the Kelvin scale, this occurs at 373K.

  • 4. 

    The process of changing water to ice or liquid is called change of state of matter.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • C.

      Sometimes

    • D.

      Unconfirmed

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the process of changing water to ice or liquid is indeed called a change of state of matter. When water freezes, it undergoes a change of state from a liquid to a solid, forming ice. Similarly, when ice melts, it undergoes a change of state from a solid to a liquid, becoming water again. These changes in state are a fundamental concept in the study of matter and its properties.

    What stays the same despite changes in state of matter?

    • A.

      Quantity

    • B.

      Quality

    • C.

      Temperature

    • D.

      Molecules

    Correct Answer
    D. Molecules
    Explanation
    Molecules stay the same despite changes in the state of matter. In different states of matter (solid, liquid, gas), the arrangement and movement of molecules may change, but the actual molecules themselves remain the same. The number and type of molecules do not change when matter undergoes a phase transition, only their arrangement and energy. Therefore, molecules are the constant factor regardless of the state of matter.

    How many hydrogen atoms are in water?

    • A.

      Two

    • B.

      One

    • C.

      Three

    • D.

      Five

    Correct Answer
    A. Two
    Explanation
    Water (H2O) consists of two hydrogen atoms bonded to one oxygen atom. Therefore, there are two hydrogen atoms in water.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What is the hydrogen bonded to?

    • A.

      Nitrogen

    • B.

      Possasium

    • C.

      Oxygen

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Oxygen
    Explanation
    Hydrogen can form hydrogen bonds with electronegative atoms like nitrogen and oxygen. Potassium, on the other hand, is a metal and does not form hydrogen bonds. Therefore, the correct answer is oxygen, as hydrogen can form hydrogen bonds with oxygen atoms.

    What is the atomic number of oxygen?

    • A.

      Two

    • B.

      Three

    • C.

      Five

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    The atomic number of oxygen is 8. It is not listed as any of the options given (Two, Three, Five, None of the above).

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which charge does the oxygen have?

    • A.

      Negative

    • B.

      Positive

    • C.

      Slightly positive

    • D.

      Slightly negative

    Correct Answer
    B. Positive
    Explanation
    Oxygen typically has a charge of negative due to its high electronegativity and tendency to gain electrons in chemical reactions. However, the given answer is incorrect as it states that oxygen has a positive charge.

    What is the melting point of ice?

    • A.

    • B.

      -0°

    • C.

      10°

    • D.

      100°

    Correct Answer
    A. 0°
    Explanation
    The melting point of ice is 0°C. This is the temperature at which ice changes from a solid state to a liquid state. At this temperature, the ice absorbs enough heat energy to break the hydrogen bonds between its water molecules and transitions into liquid water. Therefore, 0°C is the correct answer for the melting point of ice.
