Question 1

Question
What does the kinetic theory of matter state?
Answer
  • All matter is made up of very small cells that are in constant motion
  • For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
  • The particles of a substance will stay at rest unless heated
  • All matter is made of small particles that are in continuous random motion

Question 2

Question
Which state has the least densely packed molecules?
Answer
  • Solid
  • Liquid
  • Gas
  • Plasma

Question 3

Question
Have a fixed volume
Answer
  • Solid
  • Liquid
  • Gas
  • Air

Question 4

Question
Have a fixed shape
Answer
  • Solid
  • Liquid
  • Gas
  • Perfume

Question 5

Question
How solids move around
Answer
  • Osmosis
  • Vibration
  • Extremely quickly
  • In a straight line until it hits the walls of the container

Question 6

Question
Why does a solid expand upon heating?
Answer
  • The mean size of each molecule expands with each change in degree Kelvin
  • The air between the molecules exert a pressure that is equal in force to that of the solid molecules
  • Increased vibration causes molecules to move away from forces of attraction, therefore occupying more space

Question 7

Question
When the temperature of a solid increases then
Answer
  • The volume increases
  • The volume decreases
  • The density increases
  • The density decreases
  • The mass decreases
  • The mass increases
  • Nothing at all changes

Question 8

Question
Not easily compressed
Answer
  • Solids
  • Liquids
  • Gases

Question 9

Question
Shape affected by shape of container
Answer
  • Solids
  • Liquids
  • Gases

Question 10

Question
Why does't latent heat of fusion cause change in temperature
Answer
  • The liquid is not being heated at all
  • Potential energy changes instead of kinetic
  • IS THIS A TRICK!?! Of course it changes temperature
  • Not enough energy is absorbed

Question 11

Question
True of Evaporation
Answer
  • Surface phenomenon
  • Occurs only at a specific temperature range
  • Change from liquid to gas
  • Increased when the surface area is increased
  • Temperature does not affect it all
  • Breeze increases the rate of evaporation
  • Causes cooling of surface

Question 12

Question
True of Boiling
Answer
  • Surface phenomenon
  • Occurs only at a specific temperature
  • Change from liquid to gas
  • The entire liquid is at 1 temperature
