    • A.

      Mass

    • B.

      Volume

    • C.

      Matter

    • D.

      Density

    Correct Answer
    C. Matter
    Explanation
    Matter refers to anything that has mass and takes up space. It includes both visible objects and invisible particles. Mass is the measure of the amount of matter in an object, while volume is the amount of space that matter occupies. Density, on the other hand, is the mass of an object divided by its volume. Therefore, matter is the most appropriate answer as it encompasses both mass and volume.

    The amount of space an object takes up:

    • A.

      Mass

    • B.

      Volume

    • C.

      Matter

    • D.

      Density

    Correct Answer
    B. Volume
    Explanation
    Volume refers to the amount of space that an object occupies. It is a measure of the three-dimensional space that an object occupies. Mass, on the other hand, refers to the amount of matter in an object. While mass is related to volume, they are not the same thing. Matter is a general term used to describe anything that has mass and occupies space. Density, on the other hand, is the mass of an object per unit volume. Therefore, volume is the correct answer as it directly relates to the amount of space an object takes up.

    The particles found in Solids are close together.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Solids are characterized by tightly packed particles. The particles in a solid are closely arranged and have strong intermolecular forces that hold them in fixed positions. This close proximity between particles gives solids their rigid structure and high density. Therefore, the statement "The particles found in Solids are close together" is true.

    The particles found in Gases are close together.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that "The particles found in Gases are close together" is false. In gases, the particles are not close together but rather are spread out and have a lot of space between them. This is because the particles in gases have high kinetic energy and are constantly moving and colliding with each other. As a result, gases are highly compressible and can expand to fill the container they are in.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    The particles found in Liquids are closer together than those found in Gases.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Liquids have particles that are closer together compared to gases. This is because in liquids, the intermolecular forces are stronger, causing the particles to be attracted to each other and stay closer. In gases, on the other hand, the intermolecular forces are weaker, allowing the particles to move more freely and be farther apart. Therefore, the statement that particles in liquids are closer together than those in gases is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Solids have the least amount of particles per volume.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that "solids have the least amount of particles per volume" is false. In fact, solids have a higher density compared to liquids and gases, meaning that they have a higher number of particles per unit volume. This is because the particles in a solid are closely packed together, whereas in liquids and gases, the particles are more spread out. Therefore, solids have a greater amount of particles per volume, making the given statement incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Gases have the least amount of particles per volume.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Gases have the least amount of particles per volume because they have the most space between their particles compared to solids and liquids. In solids, the particles are tightly packed together, while in liquids they are closer but still have less space than gases. Therefore, gases have a lower particle density and fewer particles per unit volume.

      Compund

    • D.

      Molecule

    Correct Answer
    A. Solution
    Explanation
    A solution is a type of mixture in which all the particles are mixed evenly. In a solution, the solute is evenly distributed throughout the solvent, resulting in a homogeneous mixture. This means that no matter where you sample from within the solution, you will find the same composition. Solutions can be made of solids, liquids, or gases, and they are commonly encountered in everyday life, such as saltwater or sugar dissolved in water.

      Conservation of Matter

    Correct Answer
    A. Physical Change
    Explanation
    A physical change refers to a change in the physical properties or characteristics of a substance without altering its chemical composition. In this context, to physically change the appearance of something means to modify its external features or attributes without causing any chemical reactions or transformations. It could involve altering the shape, size, color, or texture of an object, but the fundamental chemical makeup remains the same. Therefore, the correct answer is Physical Change.

      Conservation of Matter

    Correct Answer
    C. Chemical Change
    Explanation
    A chemical change refers to a transformation in a substance that results in the formation of a new substance with different properties. Unlike physical changes, which only alter the appearance or state of matter, a chemical change involves the rearrangement of atoms and the breaking or forming of chemical bonds. Conservation of matter, on the other hand, is a fundamental principle that states that matter cannot be created or destroyed during a chemical reaction, but it does not specifically refer to the change itself. Therefore, the correct answer is chemical change.

    During a chemical reaction, matter is neither gained or lost. It changes form. It is called:

    • A.

      Physical Change

    • B.

      Appearance Change

    • C.

      Chemical Change

    • D.

      Conservation of Matter

    Correct Answer
    D. Conservation of Matter
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Conservation of Matter because during a chemical reaction, the total mass of the reactants is equal to the total mass of the products. This principle states that matter cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another. Therefore, the statement that matter is neither gained nor lost and only changes form aligns with the concept of conservation of matter.
