    Why are elements and compounds classified as pure substances?

    Correct Answer
    because the properties of both of them are fixed, because compounds and elements each have fixed properties
    Explanation
    Elements and compounds are classified as pure substances because they have fixed properties. Elements are made up of only one type of atom, and compounds are made up of two or more different types of atoms bonded together. The arrangement and composition of atoms in both elements and compounds determine their specific properties, such as melting point, boiling point, and chemical reactivity. These properties remain constant regardless of the amount or source of the substance, making elements and compounds pure substances with fixed characteristics.

    How do mixtures differ from pure substances?

    Correct Answer
    because a mixtures properties are not fixed like a pure substance, because unlike a pure substance a mixtures properties are not fixed
    Explanation
    Mixtures differ from pure substances because their properties are not fixed. Unlike pure substances, which have consistent properties throughout, mixtures can have varying compositions and therefore exhibit different properties depending on the proportions of their components. This lack of fixed properties is a fundamental distinction between mixtures and pure substances.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A colloid is_____.

    • A.

      Can filter, cannot scatter light, particles are small

    • B.

      Large particles, cannot filter, separates into layers

    • C.

      Particles are intermediate in size, scatter light, and cannot filter

    Correct Answer
    C. Particles are intermediate in size, scatter light, and cannot filter
    Explanation
    A colloid is a type of mixture where the particles are intermediate in size, meaning they are larger than individual molecules but smaller than visible particles. These particles scatter light, which gives the colloid a cloudy appearance. Unlike solutions, colloids cannot be filtered because the particles are too large to pass through a filter. Therefore, the correct answer is that colloid particles are intermediate in size, scatter light, and cannot be filtered.

  • 5. 

    A suspension is _______.

    • A.

      A heterogeneous mixture, can filter, and separates into layers.

    • B.

      A homogeneous mixture, can filter, and separates into layers.

    • C.

      A heterogeneous mixture, cannot filter, separates into layers.

    Correct Answer
    A. A heterogeneous mixture, can filter, and separates into layers.
    Explanation
    A suspension is a heterogeneous mixture because it consists of solid particles dispersed in a liquid or gas. It can be filtered because the solid particles are large enough to be trapped by a filter. Additionally, a suspension can separate into layers over time due to the different densities of the components, with the solid particles settling at the bottom.

    A solution is __________.

    • A.

      Homogeneous mixture, small particles, cannot separate, can be filtered, can see through it

    • B.

      Homogeneous mixture, small particles, cannot separate or be filtered, and is transparent or see through.

    • C.

      Heterogeneous mixture, small particles, cannot be separated or filtered, is transparent

    Correct Answer
    B. Homogeneous mixture, small particles, cannot separate or be filtered, and is transparent or see through.
    Explanation
    A solution is a homogeneous mixture, meaning that it has a uniform composition throughout. It contains small particles that are evenly distributed and cannot be separated or filtered out. Additionally, a solution is transparent or see through, allowing light to pass through it without scattering.

  • 8. 

    The properties of a compound are the same as the substances that make it up.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The properties of a compound are the same as the substances that make it up" is false. When substances combine to form a compound, their properties often change. Compounds have unique properties that are different from the individual substances that make them up. This is due to the rearrangement of atoms and the formation of new chemical bonds in the compound. Therefore, compounds have distinct characteristics that are not present in their constituent elements or compounds.

    What properties do you use to separate mixtures?

    • A.

      Filtration and distillation

    • B.

      Distillation and dehydration

    • C.

      Filtration and dehydration

    Correct Answer
    A. Filtration and distillation
    Explanation
    Filtration and distillation are commonly used properties to separate mixtures. Filtration is a process that separates solid particles from a liquid or gas by passing it through a filter medium, allowing the liquid or gas to pass through while retaining the solid particles. Distillation, on the other hand, is a process that separates mixtures based on the difference in boiling points of the components. It involves heating the mixture to vaporize the more volatile component, and then condensing the vapor back into a liquid to collect the purified component. Both filtration and distillation are effective methods for separating mixtures based on different physical properties.

    Density is ________.

    Correct Answer
    the ratio of mass to its volume
    Explanation
    Density is a physical property of a substance that is defined as the ratio of its mass to its volume. It is a measure of how much mass is contained within a given volume of a material. The formula for density is density = mass/volume. By calculating the density of a substance, we can determine how compact or concentrated it is. For example, a substance with a high density would have a large mass in a small volume, while a substance with a low density would have a small mass in a large volume.

    Density can be used to test the ????? of a ????.

    • A.

      Volume of a mass

    • B.

      Purity of a material

    • C.

      Mass of a cubic centimeter

    • D.

      Purity of a substance

    Correct Answer
    D. Purity of a substance
    Explanation
    Density is a measure of how much mass is contained in a given volume. It is calculated by dividing the mass of an object by its volume. In this context, density can be used to test the purity of a substance. If a substance is pure, it will have a consistent density throughout. However, if impurities are present, the density will vary. Therefore, by measuring the density of a substance, one can determine its purity.

    Physical properties can be used to....

    • A.

      Identify a material, choose a material for no purpose, or to gather the substances in a mixture.

    • B.

      Identify a material, to separate the substances in a mixture, and to choose a material for a specific purpose.

    Correct Answer
    B. Identify a material, to separate the substances in a mixture, and to choose a material for a specific purpose.
    Explanation
    Physical properties such as density, boiling point, solubility, and conductivity can be used to identify a material by comparing its properties to known substances. These properties can also be used to separate the substances in a mixture, for example, by using differences in boiling points or solubilities. Additionally, physical properties can help in choosing a material for a specific purpose by considering properties such as strength, flexibility, and thermal conductivity that are required for a particular application.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The formula to calculate density is________.

    Correct Answer
    D = M/V
    Explanation
    The formula to calculate density is D = M/V, where D represents density, M represents mass, and V represents volume. This formula is derived from the definition of density, which is the amount of mass per unit volume of a substance. By dividing the mass of an object by its volume, we can determine its density.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    1Mass = __.Density = __ or __. Volume = __ or __.

    • A.

      Mass = mL Density = g or g/cm3 Volume = g/mL or cm3

    • B.

      Mass = g Density = g/cm3 or g/mL Volume = cm3 or mL

    Correct Answer
    B. Mass = g Density = g/cm3 or g/mL Volume = cm3 or mL
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Mass = g, Density = g/cm3 or g/mL, Volume = cm3 or mL. This answer is correct because it provides the correct units for each variable. Mass is typically measured in grams (g), density can be expressed in either grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm3) or grams per milliliter (g/mL), and volume can be measured in either cubic centimeters (cm3) or milliliters (mL).
