### Diffusion of particles through a small opening.

Effusion
Efusion
Explanation
The correct answer is "Effusion". Effusion refers to the process of particles passing through a small opening or a porous barrier. It occurs when there is a difference in pressure on either side of the barrier, causing the particles to move from an area of higher pressure to an area of lower pressure. On the other hand, "Efusion" is not a recognized term and does not have any specific meaning in the context of particle diffusion.

### The rate of diffusion mainly depends on the mass of the particles involved.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The rate of diffusion mainly depends on the mass of the particles involved. This is because larger particles have a slower rate of diffusion compared to smaller particles. The mass of the particles affects their speed and ability to move through a medium. Smaller particles have less mass and therefore can move more quickly and easily through the medium, resulting in a faster rate of diffusion. On the other hand, larger particles have more mass and move slower, leading to a slower rate of diffusion.

• A.

Effusion

• B.

Diffusion

• C.

Partial Pressure

• D.

Osmosis

A. Effusion
Explanation
Graham's Law of Effusion states that the rate of effusion for a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molar mass. This means that lighter gases will effuse or escape through a small opening at a faster rate compared to heavier gases. The rate of effusion is determined by the speed and mass of the gas particles, with lighter gases having higher speeds and lower molar masses, resulting in faster effusion.

A Barometer
Explanation
A barometer is an instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure. It consists of a long glass tube filled with mercury or another liquid, with one end closed and the other end open. The closed end is placed in the atmosphere, and as the atmospheric pressure changes, it causes the liquid in the tube to rise or fall. By measuring the height of the liquid, the atmospheric pressure can be determined. Therefore, a barometer is the correct instrument for measuring atmospheric pressure.

1 gas 15g mass, 1 gas 6g mass, and 2 gases 10g mass.

D. 1 gas 15g mass, 1 gas 6g mass, and 2 gases 10g mass.
Explanation
According to Dalton's law of Partial Pressure, the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of each individual gas. In this case, the total mass of the gases is 112 grams, with one gas having a mass of 15g, another gas having a mass of 6g, and two gases having a mass of 10g each. Since the question asks for the gases that are not eligible for the gas mixture, the answer is the combination of these gases: 1 gas with 15g mass, 1 gas with 6g mass, and 2 gases with 10g mass.

### Intermolecular Forces are....

• A.

Forces beside molecules

• B.

Forces between molecules

• C.

Forces of molecules

• D.

Forces inside molecules

B. Forces between molecules
Explanation
Intermolecular forces refer to the attractive or repulsive forces that exist between molecules. These forces are responsible for holding molecules together in a liquid or solid state. They are weaker than the intramolecular forces that hold atoms together within a molecule. The correct answer, "forces between molecules," accurately describes the nature of these intermolecular forces.

Rate this question:

### The three types of intermolecular forces:

• A.

Dispersion, Dipole, Oxygen

• B.

Diffusion, Dipole-Dipole, Hydrogen

• C.

Dispersion, Dipole-Dipole, Hydrogen

• D.

Diffusion, Di-Di pole, Hydrogen

C. Dispersion, Dipole-Dipole, Hydrogen
Explanation
The correct answer is Dispersion, Dipole-Dipole, Hydrogen. Intermolecular forces are the forces of attraction between molecules. Dispersion forces are the weakest intermolecular forces and occur between all molecules. Dipole-dipole forces occur between polar molecules and are stronger than dispersion forces. Hydrogen bonding is a special type of dipole-dipole force that occurs when a hydrogen atom is bonded to a highly electronegative atom such as oxygen, nitrogen, or fluorine. These forces are the strongest intermolecular forces.

Rate this question:

• 23.

### Dispersion forces are the weakest bonds. They also are the only ________ bonds.

Temporary
Explanation
Dispersion forces, also known as London dispersion forces, are the weakest type of intermolecular bonds. These forces occur between nonpolar molecules and are caused by temporary fluctuations in electron distribution, leading to temporary dipoles. Due to their temporary nature, dispersion forces are the only type of bonds that are not permanent or long-lasting.

### Energy required to increases the surface strength of a liquid by a given amount.

Surface Tension
Tension
Explanation
The correct answer is Surface Tension. Surface tension is the energy required to increase the surface strength of a liquid by a given amount. It is a property of liquids that arises due to the cohesive forces between the molecules at the surface. These cohesive forces cause the surface of a liquid to behave like a stretched elastic sheet, resulting in a higher surface tension. Tension, on the other hand, is a more general term that refers to the state of being stretched or strained. While tension can be present in various contexts, surface tension specifically describes the property of liquids.

Rate this question:

• 25.

### A substance that increases surface tension.

Surfactant
A Surfactant
Explanation
Surfactant is a substance that increases surface tension. It is a compound that contains both hydrophilic (water-loving) and hydrophobic (water-repelling) parts. When added to a liquid, such as water, surfactants align themselves at the liquid-air interface, reducing the surface tension. This allows the liquid to spread more easily and form a thin film on surfaces. Surfactants are commonly used in detergents, soaps, and cleaning products to help remove dirt and oils by lowering the surface tension of water, enabling it to penetrate and lift away contaminants.

### Graph of pressure versus temperature that shows in which phase a substance exists under different condition of temperature and pressure. A ________ diagram.

Phase
Phase Diagram
Explanation
A phase diagram is a graph that shows the different phases (solid, liquid, gas) in which a substance exists under different conditions of temperature and pressure. It helps us understand the relationship between these variables and allows us to determine at which temperature and pressure a substance will undergo phase changes. The correct answer is "Phase Diagram" because it accurately describes the graph that represents the phases of a substance.

Rate this question:

• 27.

### Phase diagrams typically have _____ regions.

3
Three
Explanation
Phase diagrams typically have three regions. This is because phase diagrams represent the different phases or states of a substance (such as solid, liquid, and gas) at different combinations of temperature and pressure. The three regions in a phase diagram correspond to the three phases of the substance. The boundaries between these regions represent the conditions at which phase transitions occur. Therefore, it is common for phase diagrams to have three distinct regions to represent the solid, liquid, and gas phases.
