(2) the relative abundance of each naturally occurring isotope of chlorine, only
(3) the atomic mass and the relative abundance of each naturally occurring isotope of chlorine
(4) the atomic mass and the relative abundance of each naturally occurring and artificially produced isotope of chlorine
3 masses, % of natural isotopes
3 In an atom of argon-40, the number of protons
(1) equals the number of electrons
(2) equals the number of neutrons
(3) is less than the number of electrons
(4) is greater than the number of electrons
1 Atom protons equals electrons
4 An electron in a sodium atom moves from the third shell to the fourth shell. This change is a result of the atom
(1) absorbing energy    (3) gaining an electron
(2) releasing energy    (4) losing an electron
1 goes to a higher energy level, it absorbs energy

(1) They have different molecular structures, only.
(2) They have different properties, only.
(3) They have different molecular structures and different properties.
(4) They have the same molecular structure and the same properties.
3 they are chemically different, in structure and properties
6 Which statement describes a chemical property of bromine?
(1) Bromine is soluble in water.
(2) Bromine has a reddish-brown color.
(3) Bromine combines with aluminum to produce AlBr3.
(4) Bromine changes from a liquid to a gas at 332 K and 1 atm.
3 chemical=reactions

physical are phase changes (including dissolving)

(1) mass
(2) electronegativity
(3) total number of protons
(4) total number of valence electrons
4 same group same # valence electrons
8 Which type of matter is composed of two or more elements that are chemically combined in a fixed proportion?
(1) solution
(2) compound
(3) homogeneous mixture
(4) heterogeneous mixture
2 definition of compound
9 Which type of substance can conduct electricity in the liquid phase but not in the solid phase?
(1) ionic compound
(2) molecular compound
(3) metallic element
(4) nonmetallic element
1 ionic, moving charge is electricity
10 Why is a molecule of CO2 nonpolar even though the bonds between the carbon atom and the oxygen atoms are polar?
(1) The shape of the CO2 molecule is symmetrical.
(2) The shape of the CO2 molecule is asymmetrical.
(3) The CO2 molecule has a deficiency of electrons.
(4) The CO2 molecule has an excess of electrons.
1 SNAP

Symmertrical is Nonpolar, Asymmertical is Polar
