T or F: the method of scientific inquiry that describes natural structures and processes as accurately as possible is known as discovery science.
T or F: theories are much broader in scope than hypotheses and are supported by a large body of evidence.
Electrons exist only at fixed levels of potential energy. however, if an atom absorbs sufficient energy, a possible result is that?
an electron may move to an electron shell farther out from the nucleus.
OXYGEN IS A _____, WHILE THE OXYGEN WE BREATH (O2) IS A(N) _______, AND THE CARBON DIOXIDE WE EXHALE IS A(N) ___________
element, molecule, compound
changing the _______ would change it into an atom of a different element:
the number of protons in the nucleus of the atom
sometimes atoms form molecules by sharing two pairs of valence electrons. when this occurs, the atoms are said to be joined by:
a double covalent bond
what best describes equilibrium?
forward and reverse reactions continue with no effect on the concentrations of the reactants and products
pure freshly-distilled water has a pH of 7, this means that:
the concentration of H+ ions in the water equals the concentration of the OH- ions in water
why does ice float in liquid water?
hydrogen bonds stabilize and keep the molecule of ice farther apart than water molecules of liquid water
based on your knowledge of the polarity of water molecules, the solute molecule is most likely
consider to solutions: solution X has a pH of 4; solution Y has a pH of 7. From this information, we can reasonably conclude that the concentration of hydrogen ions in solution X is:
1000 times as great as the concentration of hydrogen ions in solution Y
many mammals control their body temp. by sweating. which property of water is most directly responsible for the ability to sweat to lower body temp
the absorption of heat by the breaking of hydrogen bonds
which of the following solutions has the greatest concentration of hydroxyl ions [OH-]?
A. lemon juice at pH of 2
B. vinegar at pH of 3
C. tomato juice at pH 4
D. urine at pH 6
E. seawater at pH 8
E. seawater at pH 8
hydrogens are insoluble in water because:
the majority of their bonds are non-polar covalent carbon-to-hydrogen linkages
thalidomide and l-dopa are examples of pharmaceutical drugs that occur as enantiomers or molecules that
are mirror images of one another
which action could produce a carbonyl group?
the replacement of the -OH of a carboxyl group with hydrogen
the hydrogenation of vegetable oil results in which of the following?
A. Saturated fats and unsaturated fats with trans double bonds
B. an increased contribution to arteriosclerosis
c. the oil (fat) being a solid at room temp
