    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    It is the type of bond happened between a metal and nonmetal atoms________.

    Correct Answer
    Covalent
    Explanation
    Covalent bonds occur between nonmetal atoms when they share electrons to achieve a stable electron configuration. In this type of bond, the atoms are held together by the strong attraction between the shared electrons and the positively charged nuclei of the atoms involved. Therefore, covalent bonding is the type of bond that occurs between metal and nonmetal atoms.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In a single bond, two atoms share a pair of electrons. Each atom contributes one electron to the bond, resulting in a total of two valence electrons being shared. Therefore, the statement that "there are two valence electrons shared in a single bond formed" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What type of bond is being formed between Li and O________?

    Correct Answer
    Ionic
    Explanation
    Ionic bonds are formed between a metal and a non-metal. In this case, Li is a metal and O is a non-metal. Therefore, an ionic bond is being formed between Li and O. In an ionic bond, electrons are transferred from the metal to the non-metal, resulting in the formation of positively charged ions (cations) and negatively charged ions (anions), which are then attracted to each other due to their opposite charges. This electrostatic attraction between the ions forms the ionic bond.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Arrange the following in decreasing atomic size: S, Ca, F, Rb, Si________?

    Correct Answer
    Rb, Ca, Si, S, F
    Explanation
    The atomic size is determined by the number of electron shells and the effective nuclear charge experienced by the outermost electrons. As we move down a group in the periodic table, the number of electron shells increases, resulting in larger atomic size. Therefore, Rb (rubidium) has the largest atomic size. Moving across a period, the atomic size generally decreases due to the increasing effective nuclear charge. Therefore, Ca (calcium) has a larger atomic size than Si (silicon), S (sulfur), and F (fluorine). Among Si, S, and F, Si has the largest atomic size as it is further down the period. Finally, F has the smallest atomic size as it is the smallest element among the given options.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Arrange the following in increasing electronegativity: Li, F, Na,C________?

    Correct Answer
    F, C, Li, Na
    Explanation
    The elements in the periodic table are arranged in increasing electronegativity from left to right and from bottom to top. Fluorine (F) is the most electronegative element, followed by carbon (C), lithium (Li), and sodium (Na). Therefore, the correct arrangement in increasing electronegativity is F, C, Li, Na.

    • A.

      9 m

    • B.

      7 m

    • C.

      13 m

    • D.

      5m

    Correct Answer
    B. 7 m
    Explanation
    John walks from point A to B to C, which means he covers the distance between these three points. The question asks for the total distance he travels, so we need to add up the distances between each pair of consecutive points. Since the distances given in the options are 9 m, 7 m, 13 m, and 5 m, the correct answer is 7 m, which is the sum of the distances between A and B and between B and C.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    John walks from the point A to B to C.What is the displacement?

    Correct Answer
    5 m
    Explanation
    The displacement is 5 m because the question states that John walks from point A to point B to point C. Displacement refers to the change in position from the starting point to the ending point, regardless of the path taken. In this case, since John walks directly from A to B to C, the displacement is equal to the distance traveled, which is 5 m.

    Correct Answer
    8 m
    20 m
    Explanation
    The final displacement of the object is 8 m because it stops at point F, which is 8 m away from point A. The distance taken from point A to D is 20 m because the object travels through B, C, and D before reaching point D.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    It refers to an energy released or required when electrons are added to an atom in the gaseous phase________.

    Correct Answer
    Electron Affinity
    Explanation
    Electron affinity is the energy released or required when electrons are added to an atom in the gaseous phase. It measures the attraction between an atom and an additional electron. A positive electron affinity indicates that energy is released when an electron is added, while a negative electron affinity indicates that energy is required. Therefore, electron affinity is a measure of an atom's ability to accept an electron and form a negative ion.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    Francis traveled 360 km at an average speed of 80km/h. Nikka took 1.5 hours more to complete the same amount of distance. What was Nikka's average speed for the whole journey?

    Correct Answer
    60km/h
    Explanation
    Nikka took 1.5 hours more than Francis to complete the same distance of 360 km. Since the distance is the same, the only difference is the time taken. Therefore, Nikka's average speed must be slower than Francis. To find Nikka's average speed, we can divide the distance (360 km) by the total time taken by Nikka (1.5 hours more than Francis). Since the speed is distance divided by time, Nikka's average speed for the whole journey is 360 km divided by (1.5 hours + time taken by Francis). However, the exact value of the time taken by Francis is not given, so we cannot calculate the exact average speed for Nikka. Therefore, the given answer of 60 km/h cannot be confirmed.

    If I drive from Pantukan to Mati City at 40 miles per hour and then from Mati City to Pantukan at 60 miles per hour, what is my average speed for the whole journey?________

    Correct Answer
    48 mph
    Explanation
    The average speed for the whole journey can be calculated by taking the total distance traveled and dividing it by the total time taken. Since the distance from Pantukan to Mati City is the same as the distance from Mati City to Pantukan, we can assume that the total distance traveled is twice the distance between the two cities. Therefore, the average speed can be calculated as the harmonic mean of the two speeds, which is (2*40*60)/(40+60) = 48 mph.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    John drove South 120 km at 60 km/h and then East 150 km at 50 km/h. Determine the average speed for the whole journey?

    • A.

      54 km/h

    • B.

      65 km/h

    • C.

      70 km/h

    • D.

      80 km/h

    Correct Answer
    A. 54 km/h
    Explanation
    To determine the average speed for the whole journey, we need to calculate the total distance traveled and divide it by the total time taken. John drove 120 km South at 60 km/h, which took 2 hours. He then drove 150 km East at 50 km/h, which took 3 hours. Therefore, the total distance traveled is 120 km + 150 km = 270 km, and the total time taken is 2 hours + 3 hours = 5 hours. Dividing the total distance by the total time, we get an average speed of 270 km / 5 hours = 54 km/h. Therefore, the correct answer is 54 km/h.

    A car travels 22 km south, 12 km west, and 14 km north in half an hour.What is the final displacement of the car?

    • A.

      4 km

    • B.

      7 km

    • C.

      6 km

    • D.

      8 km

    Correct Answer
    D. 8 km
    Explanation
    The final displacement of the car is 8 km. This can be determined by considering the net distance covered in each direction. The car travels 22 km south and then 14 km north, which cancels out to a net displacement of 8 km south. Additionally, the car travels 12 km west, but since there is no eastward movement, the net displacement in the west direction is 0 km. Therefore, the final displacement of the car is 8 km.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    A car travels 22 km south, 12 km west, and 14 km north in half an hour.What is the average velocity of the car?

    • A.

      1.5 m/s

    • B.

      2.5 m/s

    • C.

      3 m/s

    • D.

      3.5 m/s

    Correct Answer
    A. 1.5 m/s
    Explanation
    The average velocity of an object is calculated by dividing the total displacement by the total time taken. In this case, the car travels 22 km south, 12 km west, and 14 km north, resulting in a total displacement of 22 km - 12 km + 14 km = 24 km. The total time taken is half an hour, which is equal to 0.5 hours. Therefore, the average velocity is 24 km / 0.5 hours = 48 km/h. Converting this to meters per second, we get 48 km/h * (1000 m / 1 km) * (1 hour / 3600 seconds) = 13.3 m/s. Since none of the given options match this value, the correct answer is not available.

    Correct Answer
    C. 0.5 m/s<sup cwidth="0" eza="cwidth:0px;;cheight:0px;;wcalc_source:child;wcalc:9px;wocalc:9px;hcalc:45px;rend_px_area:0;">2
    Explanation
    The acceleration of the car can be calculated using the formula acceleration = (final velocity - initial velocity) / time. In this case, the initial velocity is 0 km/h and the final velocity is 36 km/h. To convert these velocities to m/s, we divide them by 3.6 (since 1 km/h = 1/3.6 m/s). So, the initial velocity is 0 m/s and the final velocity is 10 m/s. Plugging these values into the formula, we get acceleration = (10 m/s - 0 m/s) / 20 s = 0.5 m/s2.

    A mountain climbing expedition establishes a base camp and two intermediate camps, A and B. Camp A is 11,200 m east of and 3,200 m above base camp. Camp B is 8400 m east of and 1700 m higher than Camp A. Determine the displacement between base camp and Camp B.

    • A.

      15 642 m

    • B.

      18 240 m

    • C.

      20 200 m

    • D.

      24 520 m

    Correct Answer
    C. 20 200 m
    Explanation
    Camp B is located 8400 m east of Camp A and 1700 m higher than Camp A. To determine the displacement between the base camp and Camp B, we need to consider both the horizontal and vertical components. The horizontal displacement is the sum of the distances between the base camp and Camp A, and between Camp A and Camp B, which is 11,200 m + 8400 m = 19,600 m. The vertical displacement is the sum of the height differences between Camp A and the base camp, and between Camp B and Camp A, which is 3200 m + 1700 m = 4900 m. Using the Pythagorean theorem, the displacement between the base camp and Camp B is the square root of (19,600^2 + 4900^2) = 20,200 m.

    • A.

      6 m/s North

    • B.

      8 m/s East

    • C.

      10 m/s West

    • D.

      15 m/s South

    Correct Answer
    B. 8 m/s East
    Explanation
    The average velocity of the car can be calculated by dividing the total displacement by the total time taken. In this case, the car travels 150 m to the east and then 70 m to the west, resulting in a net displacement of 80 m to the east. The total time taken is given as 10 seconds. Dividing the displacement (80 m) by the time (10 s) gives an average velocity of 8 m/s to the east.
