### Light travels the fastest through a ________.

• A.

Vacuum

• B.

Solid

• C.

Liquid

• D.

Gas

A. Vacuum
Explanation
Light travels the fastest through a vacuum because there are no particles or molecules to obstruct or interact with the light waves. In a solid, liquid, or gas, the presence of particles can cause scattering, absorption, or reflection of light, which slows down its speed. However, in a vacuum, there is no medium to impede the propagation of light, allowing it to travel at its maximum speed.

### __________ is affected by the pull of gravity.

• A.

Mass

• B.

Weight

• C.

Time

• D.

Length

B. Weight
Explanation
Weight is affected by the pull of gravity. Weight is the force exerted on an object due to gravity. It is directly proportional to the mass of the object and the acceleration due to gravity. The greater the mass of an object, the greater its weight, and the stronger the pull of gravity, the greater the weight of an object. Therefore, weight is influenced by the gravitational force acting on an object.

### Which of the following is an example of a concave lens?

• A.

Glasses

• B.

Hand lens

• C.

Telescope

• D.

Microscope

C. Telescope
Explanation
A telescope is an example of a concave lens because it uses a combination of lenses to gather and focus light. The primary lens in a telescope is a concave lens, which helps to diverge the incoming light rays. This divergence allows for the enlargement and magnification of distant objects, making them appear closer and larger. The concave lens in a telescope helps to correct for nearsightedness, allowing for clear and focused viewing of objects in the distance.

### What happens when electrons move from one object to another object and stick onto the second object?

• A.

Static electricity

• B.

Moving electricity

• C.

• D.

Stationary electricity

A. Static electricity
Explanation
When electrons move from one object to another and stick onto the second object, it creates static electricity. Static electricity is generated when there is an imbalance of electric charges on the surfaces of objects. The transfer of electrons causes one object to become positively charged and the other object to become negatively charged. These charges attract each other, resulting in the sticking of electrons onto the second object. This phenomenon is commonly observed when rubbing certain materials together, such as rubbing a balloon on hair to make it stick to a wall.

### Which of the following describes a solid?

• A.

Packed loosely together

• B.

Flow and slide past each other

• C.

Packed tightly together in straight rows

• D.

Used in flourescent lights

C. Packed tightly together in straight rows
Explanation
A solid is described as packed tightly together in straight rows because in a solid, the particles are closely packed and have a fixed position. They vibrate in place but do not flow or slide past each other like in a liquid or gas. This arrangement gives solids a definite shape and volume. The option "packed loosely together" would describe a gas, while "flow and slide past each other" would describe a liquid. The option "used in fluorescent lights" is unrelated to the description of a solid.

### What would it take for matter to move from one state to another?

• A.

Energy

• B.

Matter

• C.

Help

• D.

This is impossible

A. Energy
Explanation
Matter can change from one state to another through the input or removal of energy. The movement of particles within matter is influenced by the amount of energy they possess. When energy is added or removed, it can cause the particles to move faster or slower, leading to a change in the state of matter. Therefore, energy is required for matter to transition from one state to another.

Rate this question:

### Which of the following is an insulator?

• A.

Iron

• B.

Plastic

• C.

Steel

• D.

Metal

B. Plastic
Explanation
Plastic is an insulator because it is made up of polymers, which have high resistance to the flow of electric current. Unlike metals, which are good conductors of electricity, plastic does not allow the free movement of electrons. This property makes plastic useful for insulating electrical wires and preventing electrical shocks.

### Sound is produced by ________________.

• A.

Staring

• B.

Talking

• C.

• D.

Vibrations

D. Vibrations
Explanation
Sound is produced by vibrations. When an object vibrates, it creates disturbances in the surrounding air particles. These disturbances then travel as sound waves through the air or any other medium. Our ears detect these sound waves and our brain interprets them as sound. Therefore, vibrations are the fundamental cause of sound production.

Sunlight is composed of all the colors of the visible spectrum, which when combined together, appear as white light. This is because sunlight contains a mixture of different wavelengths, ranging from red to violet. When these wavelengths are blended, they create the perception of white light.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Sound moves the fastest through a _______.

• A.

Liquid

• B.

Solid

• C.

Cup

• D.

Gas

B. Solid
Explanation
Sound waves require a medium to travel through, as they rely on the vibration and collision of particles. In a solid, such as a metal or a dense material, the particles are closely packed, allowing the sound waves to travel quickly and efficiently. Liquids and gases have particles that are more spread out, making it more difficult for sound waves to propagate through them. A cup, being an object, is not a medium through which sound can travel. Therefore, the correct answer is solid.

### Which of the following is a chemical change?

• A.

Clothes drying in the sun

• B.

Making chocolate milk

• C.

Shooting off fireworks

• D.

C. Shooting off fireworks
Explanation
Shooting off fireworks is a chemical change because it involves a chemical reaction. Fireworks contain various chemicals that react when ignited, resulting in the production of light, heat, and sound. This reaction cannot be easily reversed, and new substances are formed as a result. In contrast, clothes drying in the sun, making chocolate milk, and slicing bread are all physical changes where the substances involved do not undergo a chemical reaction and can be easily reversed.

### The convex lens is __________________.

• A.

Thicker in the middle and makes things look bigger

• B.

The same width and makes things look bigger

• C.

Thinner in the middle and makes things look smaller

• D.

Thicker in the middle and makes things look closer

A. Thicker in the middle and makes things look bigger
Explanation
A convex lens is thicker in the middle and makes things look bigger because it refracts (bends) light in a way that causes the light rays to converge. This convergence of light rays results in the image appearing larger than the actual object. The thicker middle part of the lens causes the light rays to bend more, leading to a magnified image.

### Which of the following describes a gas?

• A.

Takes the shape of the container it is in

• B.

Has its own shape

• C.

Flows

• D.

Spreads out to fill the entire space

D. Spreads out to fill the entire space
Explanation
A gas is a state of matter that has the ability to spread out and fill the entire space it occupies. Unlike solids and liquids, gases do not have a fixed shape or volume. They take the shape of the container they are in and can flow freely. This property allows gases to easily diffuse and mix with other gases. Therefore, the statement "spreads out to fill the entire space" accurately describes the behavior of a gas.

### The composition of the mixture of gases that makes up our air is best represented on what kind of graph?

• A.

Line graph

• B.

Variable graph

• C.

Bar graph

• D.

Pie chart

D. Pie chart
Explanation
A pie chart is the best representation for the composition of the mixture of gases in our air because it allows for easy visualization of the proportions of each gas. Each gas can be represented by a separate slice of the pie, with the size of the slice indicating the percentage or proportion of that gas in the mixture. This helps to clearly show the relative amounts of different gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and others in the air. A line graph or variable graph would not be suitable for this purpose as they are typically used to show trends or changes over time or with varying variables. A bar graph would not be appropriate as it is used to compare discrete categories or quantities, which is not the case for the composition of gases in the air.

### In a controlled experiment,

• A.

The outcome is controlled.

• B.

Results are obtained by computer models.

• C.

One variable is fixed while all others are changed.

• D.

One variable is changed while all others remain fixed.

D. One variable is changed while all others remain fixed.
Explanation
In a controlled experiment, the researcher intentionally manipulates one variable while keeping all other variables constant. This allows for the isolation of the effects of the variable being tested. By changing only one variable at a time and keeping others fixed, the researcher can determine the specific impact of that variable on the outcome. This helps in establishing cause-and-effect relationships and drawing reliable conclusions from the experiment.

### Which of the following is a physical change?

• A.

Melting ice cubes

• B.

Burning paper

• C.

Rusting iron

• D.

Burning gasoline

A. Melting ice cubes
Explanation
Melting ice cubes is a physical change because it involves a change in state from solid to liquid without altering the chemical composition of the substance. The water molecules in the ice cubes rearrange themselves and gain enough energy to break their rigid structure, resulting in a liquid form. This change can be reversed by freezing the liquid water back into ice cubes, indicating that it is a physical change rather than a chemical one.

### Which of the following is a pure substance?

• A.

Grape juice

• B.

Salt water

• C.

Table salt

• D.

Gasoline

C. Table salt
Explanation
Table salt is a pure substance because it is composed of only one type of molecule, sodium chloride (NaCl). It does not contain any impurities or other substances. In contrast, grape juice is a mixture of water, sugars, acids, and other compounds. Salt water is a mixture of water and dissolved salt. Gasoline is a mixture of various hydrocarbons. Therefore, table salt is the only option that qualifies as a pure substance.

### Which of the following assumptions is NOT part of the part of the kinetic theory?

• A.

All matter is made up of tiny, invisible particles.

• B.

Particles are smaller at lower temperature.

• C.

Particles move faster at higher temperature.

• D.

The particles are always moving.

B. Particles are smaller at lower temperature.
Explanation
The kinetic theory states that all matter is made up of tiny, invisible particles that are always in motion. It also states that particles move faster at higher temperatures. However, it does not assume that particles are smaller at lower temperatures. The size of the particles is not directly related to temperature according to the kinetic theory.

### Three common states of matter are

• A.

Solid, water, and gas.

• B.

Ice, water, and gas.

• C.

Solid, liquid, and gas.

• D.

Solid, liquid, and air.

C. Solid, liquid, and gas.
Explanation
The correct answer is solid, liquid, and gas. These three states of matter are commonly known and recognized. Solids have a definite shape and volume, while liquids have a definite volume but take the shape of their container. Gases have neither a definite shape nor volume and can expand to fill any container. Water is an example of a substance that can exist in all three states, as ice (solid), water (liquid), and steam (gas).

### During which change of state do atoms or molecules become more ordered?

• A.

Boiling

• B.

Condensation

• C.

Melting

• D.

Sublimation

B. Condensation
Explanation
Condensation is the change of state from a gas to a liquid. During condensation, the atoms or molecules come closer together and form a more ordered arrangement. This is because the gas molecules lose energy and slow down, causing them to stick together and form liquid droplets. In contrast, during boiling, melting, and sublimation, the atoms or molecules become less ordered as they gain energy and move more freely.

### Which of the following describes what happens as the temperature of a gas in a balloon increases?

• A.

The volume of the gas increases and the speed of the particles in increases.

• B.

The speed of the particles decreases.

• C.

The volume decreases.

• D.

The pressure decreases.

A. The volume of the gas increases and the speed of the particles in increases.
Explanation
As the temperature of a gas in a balloon increases, the volume of the gas increases. This is because the increase in temperature causes the gas particles to move faster and collide with the walls of the balloon more frequently, leading to an expansion of the gas and an increase in volume. Additionally, the speed of the particles increases as a result of the increased temperature, as the kinetic energy of the particles increases.

### Fluid pressure is always directed

• A.

Up.

• B.

Down.

• C.

Sideways.

• D.

In all direction.

D. In all direction.
Explanation
Fluid pressure is always directed in all directions because fluids are capable of exerting pressure uniformly in all directions. This is due to the fact that fluid molecules are constantly in motion and collide with each other and with the walls of the container they are in. These collisions result in pressure being exerted in all directions, creating a balanced force distribution within the fluid. Therefore, fluid pressure is not limited to a specific direction but acts equally in all directions.

### Materials that can flow to fit their containers include

• A.

Gases.

• B.

Liquids.

• C.

Both gases and liquids.

• D.

Neither gases or liquids.

C. Both gases and liquids.
Explanation
Materials that can flow to fit their containers include both gases and liquids. Gases have the ability to expand and fill the entire volume of their container, taking the shape of the container they are in. Liquids, on the other hand, have the ability to take the shape of their container while maintaining a constant volume. Both gases and liquids are considered fluid materials because they can flow and adapt to the shape of their containers.
