Answer Explanations
1 Which subatomic particles are located in the nucleus of a neon atom?
(1) electrons and positrons
(2) electrons and neutrons
(3) protons and neutrons
(4) protons and electrons
3 nucleus= protons and neutrons
2 The total mass of the protons in an atom of gold-198 is approximately
(1) 79 atomic mass units
(2) 119 atomic mass units
(3) 198 atomic mass units
(4) 277 atomic mass units
1 atomic number of gold is 79= #protons

each proton is 1 amu

 

3 In a calcium atom in the ground state, the electrons that possess the least amount of energy are located in the

(1) Be    (3) Si
(2) Al     (4) Cl
4 right side of the staircase
9 Solid samples of the element phosphorus can be white, black, or red in color. The variations in color are due to different
(1) atomic masses
(2) molecular structures
(3) ionization energies
(4) nuclear charges
2 different molecular structures have different properties
2 balanced reaction are mole ratios
