If a series of measurements agree closley but differs widely from the actual value , these measurements are
precise but not accurate
In division and multiplicaion , the answer must not have more sig figs than the
number in the calculation with the fewest number of sig figs.

Who is the english school teacher who studied chemistry and formulated principles of an Atomic theory that is recognized today?
The behavior of the cathode rays produced when exposed to a magnetic field, led scientist to conclude that the rules
were composed of negatively charged particles
In Rutherford's gold foil experiment, most of the particles
passed through the foil
One of the colclusions Rutherford made about the structure of an atom is
an atom contains a small,dense,positively charged central region
The atomic mass listed on the periodic table is the
average atomic mass of all isotopes that exist for that element.
As the mass number of the isotopes of an element increases, the number of protons
remains the same

An electron dot diagram represents
the electron arrangement in the outer shell.
When writing the complete elctron notation, the coefficients represent
the energy level
Atoms having less than 4 electrons in their outer shell will
lose them
when writing the complete electron notation , the superscript represents
