(1) H2(g) (3) Ar(g)
(2) Br2(l) (4) Ag(s)
|14 The relatively high boiling point of water is due
to water having
(1) hydrogen bonding
(2) metallic bonding
(3) nonpolar covalent bonding
(4) strong ionic bonding
|1||FON with H has hydrogen bonding between molecules|
|15 Matter is classified as a
(1) substance, only
(2) substance or as a mixture of substances
(3) homogenous mixture, only
(4) homogenous mixture or as a heterogeneous mixture
|2||definition of matter|

(1) ammonia (3) propanol
(2) copper (4) water
|2||definition of an element|
|17 A beaker contains both alcohol and water.
These liquids can be separated by distillation
because the liquids have different
(1) boiling points (3) particle sizes
(2) densities (4) solubilities
|1||boiling points== distillation|

average kinetic energy of the particles in a sample
(1) activation energy (3) temperature
(2) potential energy (4) entropy
|3||definition of temperature|
|19 How do the boiling point and freezing point of a
solution of water and calcium chloride at
standard pressure compare to the boiling point
and freezing point of water at standard pressure?
(1) Both the freezing point and boiling point of the solution are higher.
(2) Both the freezing point and boiling point of the solution are lower.
(3) The freezing point of the solution is higher and the boiling point of the solution is lower.
(4) The freezing point of the solution is lower and the boiling point of the solution is higher.
|20 Under which conditions of temperature and
pressure does a sample of neon behave most like
an ideal gas?
(1) 100 K and 0.25 atm
(2) 100 K and 25 atm
(3) 400 K and 0.25 atm
(4) 400 K and 25 atm
|3||ideal gas=ideal vacation
high temp low pressure
