• 1.

All matter:

• A.

Has Mass

• B.

Takes Up Space

• C.

Can Be Seen

• D.

Both A and B

D. Both A and B
Explanation
All matter has mass, meaning it has a physical property that causes it to resist changes in its motion. Additionally, matter takes up space, meaning it occupies a certain volume or area. These two characteristics are fundamental properties of matter and apply to all forms of it, whether it is visible or not. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both A and B."

The four states of matter are

• A.

Solid,Liquid, Water Vapor and Gas

• B.

Plasma, Ice, Liquid and Solid

• C.

Gas, Plasma, Liquid and Solid

• D.

Solid, Liquid and Gas

C. Gas, Plasma, Liquid and Solid
Explanation
The correct answer is Gas, Plasma, Liquid and Solid. These four states of matter are commonly recognized and studied in science. Gas is a state in which particles are spread out and move freely. Plasma is a state in which particles are highly energized and ionized. Liquid is a state in which particles are close together but can still move past one another. Solid is a state in which particles are tightly packed and vibrate in place. These four states encompass the various ways in which matter can exist and behave.

A gas is defined as:

• A.

Matter that has no definite volume

• B.

Matter that has no definite shape

• C.

Both A and B

• D.

Matter that has particles that are packed tightly together

C. Both A and B
Explanation
A gas is defined as matter that has no definite volume and no definite shape. This means that gas particles are not confined to a specific volume and can expand to fill any container they are placed in. Additionally, gas particles are not arranged in a specific pattern and can move freely, resulting in a lack of definite shape. Therefore, the correct answer is "Both A and B".

Rate this question:

_____________matter has  a definite volume and takes the shape of it’s container. The particles in _____________matter can move past each other freely.

• A.

Solid

• B.

Plasma

• C.

Liquid

• D.

All of the Above

C. Liquid
Explanation
Liquid matter has a definite volume and takes the shape of its container. The particles in liquid matter can move past each other freely.

Rate this question:

• 5.

Figure A By looking at the particles in Figure A  you can determine:

• A.

The object is in a solid state.

• B.

The object is in a plasma state.

• C.

The object is in a liquid state.

• D.

The object is in a gaseous state.

A. The object is in a solid state.
Explanation
The particles in Figure A are closely packed together and have a fixed position. This indicates that the object is in a solid state.

6)  In what state of matter do electrons tear away from their atomic nucleus and flow around freely?     Hint: This type of matter composes 99% of the universe.

• A.

Gas

• B.

Liquid

• C.

Plasma

• D.

Solid

C. Plasma
Explanation
Plasma is the state of matter in which electrons are torn away from their atomic nucleus and flow freely. Plasma is composed of ionized gas, meaning that the atoms have lost or gained electrons, resulting in a mixture of positively charged ions and negatively charged electrons. Plasma is the most common state of matter in the universe, making up about 99% of it.
