• 10.

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 concave lens to diverge the incoming light rays. This allows the telescope to magnify distant objects by making them appear larger and closer. The concave lens in a telescope causes the light rays to spread out, resulting in a wider field of view. This is different from glasses, hand lens, and microscope, which typically use convex lenses to converge light and magnify objects.

Rate this question:

• 11.

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 the imbalance of electric charges on the surface of objects, resulting in the buildup of an electric charge. This buildup of charge occurs when there is a transfer of electrons between objects, causing one object to become positively charged and the other to become negatively charged. The sticking of electrons onto the second object creates a static charge that can cause objects to attract or repel each other.

Rate this question:

• 12.

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 a state of matter where the particles are packed tightly together in straight rows. In a solid, the particles are closely bonded and have a fixed shape and volume. The arrangement of particles in a solid is highly organized and they vibrate in place. This is in contrast to liquids, where the particles flow and slide past each other, and gases, where the particles are packed loosely together and move freely. The option "used in fluorescent lights" is irrelevant to describing a solid.

Rate this question:

• 13.

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. This energy can cause the particles in the matter to move faster or slower, resulting in a change of state. For example, adding heat energy to a solid can cause it to melt and become a liquid, while removing heat energy from a liquid can cause it to freeze and become a solid. Therefore, energy is required for matter to transition between different states.

Rate this question:

• 14.

Which of the following is an insulator?

• A.

Iron

• B.

Plastic

• C.

Steel

• D.

Metal

B. Plastic
Explanation
Plastic is an insulator because it does not conduct electricity. Unlike metals such as iron and steel, which are good conductors, plastic has high resistance to the flow of electric current. This is due to the nature of its molecular structure, which does not allow the easy movement of electrons. Therefore, plastic is commonly used as an insulating material in various electrical applications to prevent the flow of electricity and protect against electrical shocks or short circuits.

Rate this question:

• 20.

Sound moves the fastest through a _______.

• A.

Liquid

• B.

Solid

• C.

Cup

• D.

Gas

B. Solid
Explanation
Sound moves the fastest through a solid because the particles in a solid are closely packed together, allowing sound waves to travel more efficiently. In liquids and gases, the particles are more spread out, resulting in a slower transmission of sound. The cup is not a medium through which sound can travel, so it is not the correct answer.

Rate this question:

• 21.

Which of the following would NOT be attracted to a magnet?

• A.

Another magnet

• B.

Rubber band

• C.

• D.

Paperclip

B. Rubber band
Explanation
Rubber bands are not attracted to magnets because they are made of non-magnetic materials such as rubber or latex. Unlike metals, which contain magnetic properties, rubber bands do not have magnetic domains that can align with an external magnetic field. Therefore, they do not experience any magnetic attraction and are not affected by magnets.

Rate this question:

• 25.

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 converges light rays that pass through it. This convergence causes the light rays to bend inward, focusing them to a point called the focal point. As a result, objects viewed through a convex lens appear larger and magnified. The thicker middle part of the lens causes the light rays to bend more, leading to a greater magnification effect.

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 does not have a fixed shape or volume. It takes the shape of the container it is in, meaning it will expand or contract to fill the available space. This is because gas particles are in constant motion and have enough energy to overcome the forces of attraction between them. As a result, they are able to spread out and occupy the entire space available to them.

• A.

Mess

• B.

Liquid

• C.

Solid

• D.

Gasoline

B. Liquid
Explanation
When energy is taken out of a gas, the particles in the gas lose kinetic energy and slow down. As a result, they come closer together and the attractive forces between them become stronger. This causes the gas to condense and transform into a liquid state. Therefore, the correct answer is "liquid".

Rate this question:

• 36.

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 us to visually compare the proportions of different gases. Each gas can be represented as a slice of the pie, with the size of the slice indicating its proportion in the mixture. This type of graph is ideal for showing the relative amounts of different components in a whole. A line graph would not be suitable as it is used to show the relationship between variables over time or another continuous variable. A variable graph is not a commonly used term in graphing, and a bar graph would not effectively represent the proportions of gases in the air.

Rate this question:

• A.

Heterogeneous mixture.

• B.

Homogeneous mixture.

• C.

Miscible liquid.

• D.

Pure substance.

A. Heterogeneous mixture.
Explanation
When oil is added to water and shaken together, it does not dissolve completely and forms separate layers. This indicates that the two substances do not mix evenly, resulting in a heterogeneous mixture. In a heterogeneous mixture, the components remain visibly distinct and can be easily separated.

Rate this question:

• 45.

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
According to the kinetic theory, all matter is made up of tiny, invisible particles. The theory also states that particles are always moving and that they move faster at higher temperatures. However, it does not make any assumption about the size of particles changing with temperature. Therefore, the assumption that particles are smaller at lower temperatures is not part of the kinetic theory.

Rate this question:

• 46.

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. This is because these three states of matter are commonly observed and studied in science. Solids have a definite shape and volume, while liquids have a definite volume but take the shape of their container, and gases have neither a definite shape nor volume. Water is an example of a substance that can exist in all three states, as ice (solid), water (liquid), and steam (gas). Air, on the other hand, is a mixture of gases and not considered a distinct state of matter.

Rate this question:

• 47.

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

• A.

Boiling

• B.

Condensation

• C.

Melting

• D.

Sublimation

B. Condensation
Explanation
During condensation, atoms or molecules transition from a gaseous state to a liquid state. This change of state leads to the formation of liquid droplets or clouds. In this process, the particles come closer together and form stronger intermolecular forces, resulting in a more ordered arrangement compared to the random motion of particles in a gas. Therefore, condensation is the change of state in which atoms or molecules become more ordered.

Rate this question:

• 48.

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, thus expanding the volume of the gas. Additionally, the speed of the particles in the gas also increases as the temperature rises. This is due to the increase in kinetic energy of the particles, resulting in faster movement. Therefore, both the volume of the gas and the speed of the particles increase as the temperature of the gas in a balloon increases.

Rate this question:

• 49.

Fluid pressure is always directed

• A.

Up.

• B.

Down.

• C.

Sideways.

• D.

In all direction.

D. In all direction.
Explanation
Fluid pressure is exerted equally in all directions. This is due to the fact that fluid molecules are constantly in motion and collide with each other and the walls of the container. These collisions create a force that is distributed evenly in all directions, causing the fluid pressure to be exerted in all directions. Therefore, fluid pressure is not only directed up, down, or sideways, but in all directions.

Rate this question:

• 50.

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 refer to substances that have the ability to take the shape of their container. Gases and liquids are the only two states of matter that possess this property. Gases have no fixed shape or volume and can completely fill any container they are placed in, while liquids have a fixed volume but can take the shape of their container. Therefore, both gases and liquids can flow and fit their containers.
