    Using chipped or broken glassware can be dangerous because it may cut someone. The sharp edges of the chipped or broken glass can cause injuries if mishandled or if it breaks during use. Additionally, using damaged glassware can also lead to contamination. The cracks or chips in the glass can provide a breeding ground for bacteria or other microorganisms, which can contaminate the substances being used or stored in the glassware. Therefore, it is important to avoid using chipped or broken glassware to ensure the safety and integrity of experiments or processes.

    Explanation
    Water should never be used to put out electrical fires because water is a conductor of electricity and can potentially make the situation worse by spreading the fire or causing electric shock. Instead, electrical fires should be extinguished using a fire extinguisher specifically designed for electrical fires or by cutting off the electrical supply if safe to do so.

  • 8. 

    If someone's clothes catch on fire use the fire extinguisher found in the classroom.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if someone's clothes catch on fire, there is a fire extinguisher in the classroom that can be used to put out the fire. However, the explanation is false because using a fire extinguisher on a person whose clothes are on fire is not recommended. The correct response would be to follow the "Stop, Drop, and Roll" technique, which involves the person dropping to the ground, covering their face, and rolling to extinguish the flames. Using a fire extinguisher on a person can potentially cause harm and spread the fire further.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When using a fire extinguisher always spray at the top of the object that is burning and work your way down.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When using a fire extinguisher, it is important to aim at the base of the fire, not the top. The fire needs to be deprived of its fuel source, which is usually at the bottom. By spraying at the top, the extinguishing agent may not reach the base and effectively put out the fire. Working your way down from the top can also cause the fire to spread further. Therefore, the correct approach is to aim at the base and sweep the extinguisher side to side until the fire is completely extinguished.
