Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What does E=mc2 mean?

    • A.

      Mass of an object is not equal to its speed.

    • B.

      Mass of an object is not affected.

    • C.

      Time is inversely proportional to an object's speed.

    Correct Answer
    C. Time is inversely proportional to an object's speed.
    Explanation
    The equation E=mc^2, derived by Albert Einstein, states that energy (E) is equal to the mass (m) of an object multiplied by the speed of light (c) squared. This equation implies that mass and energy are interchangeable, and that a small amount of mass can be converted into a large amount of energy. Additionally, the equation does not mention anything about the relationship between mass and speed, so the options stating that mass is not equal to speed or not affected are incorrect.

    Explanation
    William Harvey was an English physician who made significant contributions to the field of medicine. He is best known for his discovery of the circulation of blood throughout the body. Harvey's groundbreaking work, published in 1628, described the heart as a pump that circulated blood through a closed network of vessels, debunking the previously held belief that blood was consumed and produced by the body. His observations and experiments laid the foundation for our understanding of the cardiovascular system and revolutionized the field of anatomy and physiology.

    What is the only metal that is liquid at room temperature?

    Correct Answer
    Mercury
    Explanation
    Mercury is the only metal that is liquid at room temperature. This is because it has a low melting point of -38.8 degrees Celsius (-37.9 degrees Fahrenheit). Most metals have high melting points, causing them to be solid at room temperature. However, due to its unique atomic structure and weak metallic bonding, mercury remains in a liquid state.

    Who stated that if two gases have the same temperature, and volume, the number of molecules is the same.

    Correct Answer
    Amedeo Avogadro
    Explanation
    The statement that "if two gases have the same temperature and volume, the number of molecules is the same" is a fundamental concept known as Avogadro's Law. It is named after the Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro, who proposed this hypothesis in the early 19th century. Avogadro's Law is a significant principle in the field of chemistry and provides insights into the behavior of gases, particularly with regard to the relationship between the number of gas molecules and their physical properties.
