Questions

Answer Explanations
11 Which formula represents an ionic compound?
(1) NaCl       (3) HCl
(2) N2O       (4) H2O
1 metal and nonmetal, far apart on the PT
12 Which species does not have a noble gas electron
configuration?
(1) Na+        (3) Ar
(2) Mg2+      (4) S
4 group 18, + charge has lost electrons
13 Which statement correctly describes a chemical reaction at equilibrium?
(1) The concentrations of the products and reactants are equal.
(2) The concentrations of the products and reactants are constant.
(3) The rate of the forward reaction is less than the rate of the reverse reaction.
(4) The rate of the forward reaction is greater than the rate of the reverse reaction.
2 Equilibrium Question- 

concentrations stay constant or rates are equal

14 Given the reaction:
CH4(g) + 2 O2(g) -->2 H2O(g) + CO2(g)
What is the overall result when CH4(g) burns
according to this reaction?
(1) Energy is absorbed and DH is negative.
(2) Energy is absorbed and DH is positive.
(3) Energy is released and DH is negative.
(4) Energy is released and DH is positive.
3 Burns exothermic, DH =neg., energy released

15 A hydrated salt is a solid that includes water molecules within its crystal structure. A student heated a 9.10-gram sample of a hydrated salt to
a constant mass of 5.41 grams. What percent by mass of water did the salt contain?
(1) 3.69%    (3) 40.5%
(2) 16.8%     (4) 59.5%
3 water= 9.10-5.41= 3.69g H2O

(3.69/9.10) x 100= 40.5%

16 Which statement correctly describes a sample of gas confined in a sealed container?

(2) It takes the shape and the volume of any container in which it is confined.
(3) It has a crystalline structure.
(4) It consists of particles arranged in a regular geometric pattern.
2 definition of a gas
17 Which molecule contains a triple covalent
bond?
