    How many meters would 5446 cm convert? (Must show work on your paper worked out). 1.  Ask yourself, are you converting meters (bigger or smaller) than centimeters.  Then ask if you are going "big to small units" or "small to big units"? 2. Then ask, what does centi- prefix mean and how many zeros are in the unit (1 meter=100 centimeters)   READ BELOW BEFORE YOU ANSWER: *Simply convert to "SMALLER" unit by moving the decimal point to the "right" or "multiply". *Simply convert to "LARGER" unit by moving the decimal point to the "left" or "dividing".  For example, let's say a friend told you that he weighed 72,500.0 grams (159.5 lbs), you can convert this to kilograms simply by moving the decimal three places to the left or dividing; in other words, your friend weighs 72.5 kilograms.  (smaller units are (grams)  to bigger units (kilograms)-72,500 divided by 1000=72.5 Which way do you know to move decimal, left or right?    This depends on if you convert:         -grams to kilograms = smaller to larger = move left.        - centimeter to meter         -millimeter to centimeter                              OR                  -kiograms to grams = larger to smaller = move right.        -centimeter to millimeter        - liter to millimeters   How do you know how many places to move the decimal?    -Move decimal 3 place to left because there are 3 zeros in       kilo- means -1000 and you are going from small to big.     -centi- means-100 = 2 places   1 kilometer = 1,000 meters- 1 meter = 100 centimeters  1 centimeter = 10 millimeters This system is based on the decimal system and base units of 10s.      1. Count the number of zeros in the             number you are multiplying or dividing         by. 2. If you are multiplying, move the decimal point this number of places to the right. 3. If you are dividing, move the decimal point this number of place to the left.

    What type of matter has a "definite volume" and a "definite shape" and the particle vibrate?

    • A.

      Liquid

    • B.

      Gas

    • C.

      Plasma

    • D.

      Solid

    Correct Answer
    D. Solid
    Explanation
    Solids have a "definite volume" and a "definite shape" because the particles in a solid are closely packed together and have strong intermolecular forces, which prevent them from moving freely. The particles in a solid only vibrate in their fixed positions, maintaining the shape of the solid. Therefore, solids are the type of matter that possess these characteristics.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What type of matter has a "definite volume" but "no definite shape" and moves by sliding past each other?

    • A.

      Plasma

    • B.

      Liquid

    • C.

      Gas

    • D.

      Solid

    Correct Answer
    B. Liquid
    Explanation
    A liquid is a type of matter that has a definite volume, meaning it takes up a specific amount of space, but it does not have a definite shape. The particles in a liquid are close together and can move past each other, allowing the liquid to flow and take the shape of its container. This is different from a solid, which has both a definite volume and shape, and a gas, which has neither a definite volume nor shape. Plasma, on the other hand, is a state of matter in which the particles are highly charged and do not have a definite volume or shape.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    What type of matter has "no definite shape" or "no defintie volume" and moves rapidly past each other?

    • A.

      Gas

    • B.

      Plasma

    • C.

      Solid

    • D.

      Liquid

    Correct Answer
    A. Gas
    Explanation
    Gas is a type of matter that has no definite shape or volume and its particles move rapidly past each other. Unlike solids and liquids, the particles in a gas are not held together tightly and are free to move and spread out. This allows gases to fill the space they are in and take the shape of their container. Examples of gases include air, oxygen, and carbon dioxide.

    • B.

      Meniscus

    • C.

      Liquid line

    • D.

      Low point

    Correct Answer
    B. Meniscus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "meniscus". When measuring the volume of a liquid in a graduated cylinder, it is important to look at the meniscus, which is the curved line at the surface of the liquid. This is because the surface tension of the liquid causes it to form a curve, and the measurement should be taken at the lowest point of the curve. Looking at the meniscus at eye level ensures an accurate measurement of volume.

Their valence electrons do not combine to another element because its last orbit is full with 8 valence electrons? *Remember it becames less reactive as you move to the right of the periodic table groups 1 to 18.

    • A.

      Alkali earth metals (number 2)

    • B.

      Transitional metals (numbers 3 to 12)

    • C.

      Halogen (number 17)

    • D.

      Noble gases (number 18)

    Correct Answer
    D. Noble gases (number 18)
    Explanation
    Noble gases, also known as group 18 elements, are the least reactive and most stable group of elements on the periodic table. This is because their outermost energy level, or valence shell, is completely filled with 8 valence electrons. Since this shell is already full, noble gases have no need to interact or combine with other elements to achieve a stable electron configuration. As you move from group 1 to group 18 on the periodic table, the reactivity of elements decreases, with noble gases being the least reactive due to their full valence shells.

    A "proposed solution" to a "problem" in science is typically referred to as a "hypothesis". It is a tentative explanation or prediction that is based on prior knowledge, observations, and reasoning. A hypothesis is formulated in the "If...Then..." format, where the "If" represents the data or observations, and the "Then" represents the predicted outcome or explanation. The hypothesis is then tested and evaluated through experiments and further data analysis to determine its validity.

    What is a "chemical change"?

    • A.

      Ripping paper

    • B.

      Melting ice

    • C.

      Digestion

    • D.

      Chopping wood

    Correct Answer
    C. Digestion
    Explanation
    Digestion is a "chemical change" because it involves the breakdown of food into simpler substances through chemical reactions. In the process of digestion, enzymes and acids in the stomach and intestines break down complex molecules like carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into smaller molecules that can be absorbed by the body. This transformation is a chemical change because the composition and structure of the food molecules are altered, resulting in new substances being formed.

    What is a "physical change"?

    • A.

      Rusting

    • B.

      Burning wood

    • C.

      Ice melting

    • D.

      Digestion

    Correct Answer
    C. Ice melting
    Explanation
    A physical change refers to a change in the physical properties of a substance without altering its chemical composition. Ice melting is an example of a physical change because it involves a change in the state of water from solid (ice) to liquid (water), without any change in the chemical composition of water molecules. The process of melting involves the absorption of heat energy, causing the water molecules to gain enough energy to overcome their attractive forces and move freely, resulting in the change from a solid to a liquid state.

    What "phase of change" in matter is taking place on numbers  

    • A.

      Melting

    • B.

      Freezing

    • C.

      Evaporation

    • D.

      Boiling

    Correct Answer
    C. Evaporation
    Explanation
    Evaporation is the phase of change in matter that is taking place on numbers. Evaporation occurs when a liquid changes into a gas at a temperature below its boiling point. In this process, the liquid molecules gain enough energy to break free from the surface of the liquid and enter the gas phase. This is different from boiling, which occurs when a liquid changes into a gas at its boiling point throughout the entire liquid. Freezing is the phase change from liquid to solid, while melting is the phase change from solid to liquid.

    What is the "basic" scientific unit of "length"?

    • A.

      Gram

    • B.

      Meter

    • C.

      Liter

    • D.

      Feet

    Correct Answer
    B. Meter
    Explanation
    The basic scientific unit of length is the meter. It is a fundamental unit in the International System of Units (SI) and is used to measure distances. The meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum during a specific time interval. It is widely used in scientific research and everyday measurements due to its standardization and universal acceptance.

    What is a "response" to the "force of graivty"?

    • A.

      Mass

    • B.

      Weight

    • C.

      Density

    • D.

      Volume

    Correct Answer
    B. Weight
    Explanation
    Weight is the correct answer because it is the response to the force of gravity. Weight is the measure of the force of gravity acting on an object, and it is directly proportional to the mass of the object. The greater the mass, the greater the force of gravity and therefore the greater the weight. So weight can be considered as the response or effect of the force of gravity on an object.

    What remains the "same" in any object on the moon?

    • A.

      Graivty

    • B.

      Mass

    • C.

      Density

    • D.

      Volume

    Correct Answer
    B. Mass
    Explanation
    The correct answer is mass. Mass is a fundamental property of an object that remains the same regardless of its location. On the moon, the force of gravity is weaker compared to Earth, but the mass of an object remains constant. This means that the amount of matter in an object does not change when it is on the moon.

    What section on the periodic table has properties of "both" metals and nonmetals?

    • A.

      Transitional metals

    • B.

      Metalloids

    • C.

      Noble gases

    • D.

      Halogens

    Correct Answer
    B. Metalloids
    Explanation
    Metalloids are elements that have properties of both metals and nonmetals. They are found along the staircase line on the periodic table, separating the metals from the nonmetals. Metalloids exhibit characteristics of both groups, such as being semi-conductors of electricity and having varying degrees of metallic and nonmetallic properties. Therefore, metalloids are the section on the periodic table that has properties of "both" metals and nonmetals.

    Convert a boat's length from 29.5 meters to centimeters? READ THIS BEFORE YOU ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Remember going from "larger units-meters" to "smaller units-centimeters" move the decimal to the "right" -----> *You know the number of places to move the decimal by the number of zeros in the place value on the prefix as centi- .

    • A.

      295.00 cm

    • B.

      2950.0 cm

    • C.

      0.0295 cm

    • D.

      295 cm

    Correct Answer
    B. 2950.0 cm
    Explanation
    To convert a boat's length from 29.5 meters to centimeters, we need to move the decimal point two places to the right since we are going from larger units (meters) to smaller units (centimeters). Since the prefix "centi-" has two zeros, we move the decimal point two places to the right. Therefore, the correct answer is 2950.0 cm.
