Water Properties Labs: Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Water Pressure Lab: Observe these containers:What is the greatest source of the pressure exerted on the water?   
    • A. 

      Air

    • B. 

      Gravity

    • C. 

      Water

    • D. 

      Surface tension

  • 2. 
       The water and air pressure lab:If the lab were done while climbing Mt. Everest, as altitude increases what happens?
    • A. 

      As altitude increases, air becomes less dense and the air pressure decreases. The water would not shoot out of the container.

    • B. 

      As altitude increases, air becomes more dense and the air pressure decreases. The water would not shoot out of the container.

    • C. 

      As altitude increases, air becomes more dense and the air pressure increases. The water would shoot out of the container farther than in the classroom.

    • D. 

      As altitude increases, air becomes less dense and the air pressure increases. The water would shoot out of the container farther than in the classroom.

  • 3. 
    Think about Mt. Everest. Complete this statement: As altitude increases, air becomes.......
    • A. 

      less dense, decreasing atmospheric pressure.

    • B. 

      More dense, increasing atmospheric pressure.

    • C. 

      less dense, increasing atmospheric pressure.

    • D. 

      More dense, decreasing atmospheric pressure.

  • 4. 
    Choose the correct term to fill in the blank.The Earth's __________ pulls on air, and this pull, or "pressure" of air, is called atmospheric pressure.
    • A. 

      Gravity

    • B. 

      Density

    • C. 

      Volume

    • D. 

      Air Pressure

  • 5. 
    In the water pressure lab:What would happen to the water coming out of the container if the container holes were larger? 
    • A. 

      If the holes were larger, the volume of water flowing is greater, but slower with less pressure.

    • B. 

      If the holes were larger, the volume of water flowing is less, but faster with more pressure.

    • C. 

      If the holes were larger, the volume of water flowing is greater, faster and with more pressure.

    • D. 

      If the holes were larger, the volume of water flowing is greater, faster and with less pressure.

  • 6. 
    In the water pressure labs:What would happen to the water coming out of the container if the container holes were made smaller? 
    • A. 

      Water comes out of the container faster, is under greater pressure and there is less volume of water in the flow.

    • B. 

      Water comes out of the container faster, is under less pressure and there is greater volume of water in the flow.

    • C. 

      Water comes out of the container slower, is under greater pressure and there is less volume of water in the flow.

    • D. 

      Water comes out of the container slower, is under less pressure and there is less volume of water in the flow.

  • 7. 
    Water Pressure Lab: Observe these containers:Identify the condition the water in the bottle would be under the greatest pressure?
    • A. 

      Bottle with the cap off

    • B. 

      Cap-on, bottle with the widest opening

    • C. 

      Cap-on, bottle with the narrowest opening

    • D. 

      None of these

  • 8. 
    In the water pressure lab, of the two containers and three holes: Which container and which container hole had the least amount of water coming out when the hole was un-taped?  
    • A. 

      Capped, top hole

    • B. 

      Uncapped, top hole

    • C. 

      Uncapped, middle hole

    • D. 

      Capped, middle hole
