Question 1

Question
Label the pie chart with the names of each element found in air.
Answer
  • Nitrogen
  • Oxygen
  • Argon and other gases

Question 2

Question
Which gases do today's scientists think the early atmosphere of the Earth was made up of?
Answer
  • carbon dioxide
  • water vapour
  • ammonia
  • methane

Question 3

Question
Four billion years ago the Earth''s atmosphere was hot and much thicker than it is now. Gradually the temperature fell and most of the water vapour condensed, falling as rain and forming the oceans. About 3 billion years ago life began in the form of tiny bacteria-like creatures. They began to use the carbon dioxide from the air and light from the Sun to grow. This process of photosynthesis removed CO2 from the air and produced oxygen as a waste product. Gradually the amount of oxygen in the air increased and animals evolved that were able to breathe the oxygen.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 4

Question
Which processes removed carbon dioxide from the air to leave the composition as it is today?
Answer
  • Photosynthesis
  • Respiration
  • Dissolving into oceans

Question 5

Question
Particulates are tiny bits of solid that float in the air. Choose a natural source of particulates.
Answer
  • volcanoes
  • deforestation
  • burning fossil fuels

Question 6

Question
What is a pollutant?
Answer
  • A substance that is harmful to health or the environment and which is produced by human activity.
  • The end result of a chemical reaction.

Question 7

Question
Which of the following shows an example of a positive correlation?
Answer
  • Where the amount of pollutants in the air from burning fossil fuels is high there are more deaths from asthma, and heart and lung diseases.
  • The higher the levels of smog, the lower the air quality.

Question 8

Question
Choose the correct equation for the combustion of a hydrocarbon in air.
Answer
  • hydrocarbon + oxygen -> carbon dioxide + water (+energy)
  • hydrocarbon + oxygen -> carbon + water (+ energy)
  • hydrocarbon + oxygen -> carbon dioxide (+energy)

Question 9

Question
An oxidation reaction is a reaction where oxygen is lost.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 10

Question
Mass is never lost or gained in chemical reactions. We say that mass is always conserved. In other words, the total mass at the end of the reaction is equal to the total mass of the reactants at the beginning.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 11

Question
Scientists have found that nitrogen monoxide is formed is [blank_start]furnaces[blank_end] and engines when nitrogen and oxygen in the air are heated to about [blank_start]1000[blank_end] degrees celsius. When the nitrogen [blank_start]monoxide[blank_end] is released into the atmosphere it cools down then reacts with more [blank_start]oxygen[blank_end] to form nitrogen dioxide. N2 + O2 -> 2[blank_start]NO[blank_end] 2NO + [blank_start]O[blank_end]2 -> 2NO2
Answer
  • 1000
  • furnaces
  • monoxide
  • oxygen
  • NO
  • O

Question 12

Question
Which two gases react with oxygen and water in the atmosphere to produce acid rain?
Answer
  • sulphur dioxide
  • nitrogen dioxide
  • carbon monoxide

Question 13

Question
There are two methods of [blank_start]flue[blank_end] gas desulphurisation. The most common method uses [blank_start]calcium[blank_end] oxide (lime) which is obtained by heating [blank_start]limestone[blank_end]. The lime is mixed with water to make an alkaline [blank_start]slurry[blank_end]. Sulphur dioxide is washed or '[blank_start]scrubbed[blank_end]' out of the flue gases with water and reacts with the lime. The compound formed is reacted with [blank_start]oxygen[blank_end] in the air to make calcium sulphate, which can be sold to make plaster for walls, helping to pay for the process. The second method uses seawater (naturally slightly alkaline) to react with the sulphur dioxide and act as a [blank_start]coolant[blank_end]. The product is [blank_start]oxidised[blank_end], giving off carbon dioxide. A [blank_start]large[blank_end] volume of seawater has to be used for this process, however.
Answer
  • flue
  • calcium
  • limestone
  • slurry
  • scrubbed
  • oxygen
  • coolant
  • oxidised
  • large

Question 14

Question
What is a catalytic converter?
Answer
  • A platinum catalyst that makes pollutant gases react with each other.
  • A conversion table with the rates of different catalysed reactions.
