    Letting the contaminant degrade itself over time by allowing it to age is known as _____

    • A.

      Adsorption

    • B.

      Chemical Degradation

    • C.

      Absorption

    • D.

      Disinfection

    Correct Answer
    B. Chemical Degradation
    Explanation
    Chemical degradation refers to the process of breaking down or transforming a contaminant into less harmful substances through chemical reactions. This process occurs naturally over time, allowing the contaminant to degrade itself. Unlike adsorption, which involves the attachment of contaminants to a surface, or absorption, which involves the uptake of contaminants into a material, chemical degradation involves the actual breakdown of the contaminant molecules. Disinfection, on the other hand, refers to the process of killing or inactivating microorganisms, and is not directly related to the degradation of contaminants.

    Adding a chemical to a contaminant it order to change its chemical structure, making it harmless.

    Correct Answer
    Neutralization, neutralization
    Explanation
    Neutralization is the process of adding a chemical to a contaminant in order to change its chemical structure and make it harmless. This is achieved by combining the contaminant with a substance that has the opposite chemical properties, resulting in a neutralized compound that is no longer harmful. Neutralization is commonly used in various fields, such as wastewater treatment, to remove or reduce the toxicity of contaminants before they are discharged into the environment. It is an effective method for mitigating the negative effects of harmful substances and ensuring environmental safety.

    Solidification makes a contaminant easier to dispose of.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Solidification refers to the process of converting a liquid or semi-liquid substance into a solid state. When a contaminant is solidified, it becomes easier to handle and dispose of because it is no longer in a liquid or semi-liquid form that can easily spread or leak. Solidification helps to contain the contaminant, reduce the risk of contamination, and facilitate its safe disposal. Therefore, the statement that solidification makes a contaminant easier to dispose of is true.

    Decontaminants should be stocked and stored before any incident, as well as be clearly marked and readily accessible/tested for viability.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Decontaminants should be stocked and stored before any incident to ensure that they are readily available when needed. They should also be clearly marked to prevent confusion during an emergency. Additionally, it is important to regularly test the viability of decontaminants to ensure their effectiveness. Therefore, the statement is true as it emphasizes the importance of proactive preparation and accessibility of decontaminants.

    When capabilities and resources allow, decontaminants of choice are _____________

    • A.

      Bleach and Water

    • B.

      Soap and Water

    • C.

      Bleach and Soap

    • D.

      Physical and Chemical

    Correct Answer
    B. Soap and Water
    Explanation
    Soap and water are the decontaminants of choice when capabilities and resources allow. Soap is effective in breaking down the lipid envelope of many viruses, including the coronavirus, and helps to remove them from surfaces. Water helps to physically wash away the contaminants. This combination is a safe and effective method for decontamination, especially in situations where more specialized decontaminants may not be readily available.
