Chemistry Practice Review Questions!

Are you a lover of chemistry? Are you aware of John Dalton, who introduced the atomic theory into chemistry? Everything around us is formed of atoms, and they are made of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Right from the water we drink to the ground on which we stand, is made of atoms. Charge yourself up and take the quiz; you will positively learn something. Take this practice review and bolster your knowledge.
