    What Law Did Dalton incorporate into his theory by asserting that atoms are indivisible?

    • A.

      Law of conservation of mass

    • B.

      Law of multiple proportions

    • C.

      Law of definite proportions

    • D.

      Law of definite masses

    Correct Answer
    A. Law of conservation of mass
    Explanation
    Dalton incorporated the Law of conservation of mass into his theory by asserting that atoms are indivisible. This law states that mass is neither created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction, but is instead conserved. Dalton's assertion that atoms are indivisible implies that the total mass of the reactants must be equal to the total mass of the products in a chemical reaction, thus aligning with the Law of conservation of mass.

    A molecule is composed of one atom of A and one atom of B. A has 10 mass units, and B has 20 mass units. What is the mass of the compound?

    • A.

      Unable to determine

    • B.

      15 mass units

    • C.

      30 mass units

    • D.

      A ratio of 1:2

    Correct Answer
    C. 30 mass units
    Explanation
    The mass of the compound is determined by adding the masses of the individual atoms. In this case, atom A has a mass of 10 units and atom B has a mass of 20 units. Therefore, the total mass of the compound is 10 + 20 = 30 mass units.

  • 3. 

    The evidence between H2O2 and H20, which is the fact that elements combine in simple whole number ratios supports what law?

    • A.

      Multiple ratios

    • B.

      Multiple proportions

    • C.

      Conservation of mass

    • D.

      Definite composition

    Correct Answer
    B. Multiple proportions
    Explanation
    The evidence that elements combine in simple whole number ratios supports the law of multiple proportions. This law states that when two elements combine to form more than one compound, the different masses of one element that combine with a fixed mass of the other element are in ratios of small whole numbers. In the case of H2O2 and H2O, the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen in H2O2 is 2:2, while in H2O it is 2:1. This demonstrates the law of multiple proportions, as the ratio of hydrogen to oxygen is different in each compound.

    Who conceived the principles of atomic  theory?

    • A.

      Ms. Watson

    • B.

      Milikan

    • C.

      Rutherford

    • D.

      Dalton

    Correct Answer
    D. Dalton
    Explanation
    Dalton is the correct answer because he is the scientist who conceived the principles of atomic theory. John Dalton, an English chemist, proposed the theory in the early 19th century. His theory stated that all matter is made up of small indivisible particles called atoms, which combine to form compounds in fixed ratios. Dalton's theory laid the foundation for modern atomic theory and greatly contributed to our understanding of the composition and behavior of matter.

  • 5. 

    Who's theory AGREES with the law of definite proportions?

    • A.

      Rutherford

    • B.

      Dalton

    • C.

      Niels Bohr

    • D.

      Andy Dalton

    Correct Answer
    B. Dalton
    Explanation
    Dalton's theory agrees with the law of definite proportions. This law states that a compound will always contain the same elements in the same proportions by mass. Dalton's atomic theory, which he proposed in the early 19th century, also emphasized the idea that elements combine in fixed ratios to form compounds. He believed that atoms were indivisible and that chemical reactions involved the rearrangement of atoms. This aligns with the law of definite proportions, making Dalton the correct answer.

  • 6. 

    According to Dalton's atomic theory, atoms

    • A.

      Of the same element are the same in size, mass, and other properties

    • B.

      Of isotopes are the same in size, mass, and other properties

    • C.

      Of different elements are the same in size, mass, and other properties

    • D.

      Are extremely maleable

    Correct Answer
    A. Of the same element are the same in size, mass, and other properties
    Explanation
    According to Dalton's atomic theory, atoms of the same element are the same in size, mass, and other properties. This means that all atoms of a particular element have identical characteristics and cannot be distinguished from one another based on their physical properties. This principle forms the basis for understanding the behavior and properties of elements in chemistry.

    In the experiments we talking about in class, the cathode ray specifically, what was in the glass tube?

    • A.

      Chili mac n cheese

    • B.

      Low pressure Cesium

    • C.

      High pressure gas

    • D.

      Low pressure gas

    Correct Answer
    D. Low pressure gas
    Explanation
    In the experiments discussed in class, particularly the cathode ray experiment, the glass tube contained a low pressure gas. This is because a low pressure gas allows for the movement of charged particles, such as electrons, which are crucial for the observation of cathode rays. The low pressure gas creates an environment where the cathode rays can be produced and studied effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Why were the rays produced in a cathode tube deflected away from a negative plate?

    • A.

      The were negatively charged (electrons)

    • B.

      Because like forces attract

    • C.

      The negative plate was radioactive

    • D.

      The cathode rays were positively charged protons

    Correct Answer
    A. The were negatively charged (electrons)
    Explanation
    The rays produced in a cathode tube are deflected away from a negative plate because they are negatively charged (electrons). Like charges repel each other, so the negative electrons are repelled by the negative plate.

    Rutherford identified what part of the atom?

    • A.

      Nuclide

    • B.

      Nucleon

    • C.

      Nucleus

    • D.

      Nucleolus

    Correct Answer
    C. Nucleus
    Explanation
    Rutherford identified the nucleus of the atom. The nucleus is the central part of the atom that contains protons and neutrons. Rutherford's famous gold foil experiment led him to discover that the positive charge and most of the mass of an atom are concentrated in a small, dense region at its center, which he called the nucleus. This discovery revolutionized our understanding of atomic structure and laid the foundation for the development of modern atomic theory.

    • B.

      Positively charged

    • C.

      Negatively charged

    • D.

      Slimy and a dark

    Correct Answer
    B. Positively charged
    Explanation
    The central region of the atom, known as the nucleus, is positively charged. It contains protons, which have a positive charge, and neutrons, which have no charge. The positive charge of the protons is balanced by the negatively charged electrons that orbit around the nucleus, resulting in an overall neutral charge for the atom.

  • 11. 

    What makes the atom neutral?

    • A.

    • B.

      The number of protons is equal to the number of electrons

    • C.

      Dalton's atomic theory

    • D.

      Atoms are not neutral

    Correct Answer
    B. The number of protons is equal to the number of electrons
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the number of protons is equal to the number of electrons. This is because protons have a positive charge, while electrons have a negative charge. In an atom, the positive charge of the protons in the nucleus is balanced by the negative charge of the electrons surrounding the nucleus. This balance of positive and negative charges makes the atom neutral overall.

  • 12. 

    What forces exist in the nucleus due to the particles being so close together?

    • A.

      Nuclear Forces

    • B.

      Changes of state forces

    • C.

      Bonding

    • D.

      Pauli Exclusion forces

    Correct Answer
    A. Nuclear Forces
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Nuclear Forces. The particles in the nucleus are so close together that they experience strong attractive forces called nuclear forces. These forces are responsible for holding the protons and neutrons together in the nucleus, despite the repulsive electromagnetic forces between the positively charged protons. Nuclear forces are strong enough to overcome the electromagnetic forces and maintain the stability of the nucleus.

    What is the smallest unit of an element, that retains the identity of that element

    • A.

      The electron

    • B.

      The atom

    • C.

      I don't know because that was from chapter 1

    • D.

      The proton

    Correct Answer
    B. The atom
    Explanation
    The atom is the smallest unit of an element that retains the identity of that element. It is composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons and neutrons are located in the nucleus, while electrons orbit around the nucleus. The number of protons in an atom determines its atomic number and identifies the element. Therefore, the atom is the fundamental building block of matter and is responsible for the unique properties and identity of each element.

    Isotopes have different

    • A.

      Amount of energy

    • B.

      Different isothermal properties

    • C.

      Atomic numbers

    • D.

      Mass numbers

    Correct Answer
    D. Mass numbers
    Explanation
    Isotopes have different mass numbers. The mass number of an isotope is the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atom. Since isotopes of the same element have the same number of protons (atomic number), the only difference between them is the number of neutrons. This difference in the number of neutrons leads to different mass numbers for isotopes of the same element.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What composes the mass number

    • A.

      Protons and neutrons

    • B.

      Protons and electrons

    • C.

      Neutrons and electrons

    • D.

      Undertermined

    Correct Answer
    A. Protons and neutrons
    Explanation
    The mass number of an atom is composed of protons and neutrons. Protons have a positive charge and are found in the nucleus of an atom, while neutrons have no charge and are also found in the nucleus. The mass number represents the total number of protons and neutrons in an atom's nucleus. Electrons, on the other hand, have a negative charge and are found in the electron cloud surrounding the nucleus, but they do not contribute significantly to the mass of an atom. Therefore, the correct answer is protons and neutrons.

    What isotope of hydrogen contained one neutron and one proton

    • A.

      None of them

    • B.

      Protium

    • C.

      Dueterium

    • D.

      Tritium

    Correct Answer
    C. Dueterium
    Explanation
    Deuterium is the correct answer because it is an isotope of hydrogen that contains one neutron and one proton. Unlike the most common isotope of hydrogen, protium, which has no neutrons, deuterium has one neutron in its nucleus. Tritium, on the other hand, contains two neutrons and one proton, making it a different isotope of hydrogen. Therefore, deuterium is the isotope of hydrogen that fits the given description.

      Number of neutrons

    • D.

      Number of times the Bengals have gone to the Superbowl

    Correct Answer
    B. Number of protons
    Explanation
    The atomic number refers to the number of protons in an atom's nucleus. It is a unique identifier for each element on the periodic table, as elements are defined by the number of protons they possess. Electrons and neutrons do not determine the atomic number. The number of times the Bengals have gone to the Superbowl is unrelated to atomic number and therefore not the correct answer.

    • D.

      The carbon-14 atom

    Correct Answer
    C. The carbon- 12 atom
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the carbon-12 atom. The atomic mass of elements is determined relative to the carbon-12 atom, which is assigned a mass of exactly 12 atomic mass units. This is because carbon-12 is the most abundant and stable isotope of carbon, making it a suitable reference point for measuring atomic masses.

    Correct Answer
    C. Multiply 2 moles by the molar mass of water which is 18g/mole
    Explanation
    To calculate the mass in grams of 2 moles of water, you need to multiply 2 moles by the molar mass of water, which is 18g/mole. This is because the molar mass of water is the sum of the atomic masses of its constituent elements, which are hydrogen and oxygen. The molar mass of hydrogen is 1g/mole, and the molar mass of oxygen is 16g/mole. So, multiplying 2 moles by 18g/mole gives you the mass of 36 grams.

      You take the mass of one mole divided by the molar mass

    Correct Answer
    A. Take the weighted average of the isotopes and their atomic masses
    Explanation
    To calculate the average atomic mass, we need to take the weighted average of the isotopes and their atomic masses. This means multiplying the atomic mass of each isotope by its relative abundance (percentage) and then adding up these values for all the isotopes. The weighted average accounts for the different abundances of each isotope, giving a more accurate representation of the average atomic mass of an element.
