the branch of chemistry that includes the study of materials and processes that occur in living things is biochemistry
the state of matter in which a material has neither a definite shape and definite volume is the gaseous state
under ordinary conditions of temperature and pressure, the particles in a gas are very far from each other
group_______ in the periodic table contains only metals 2
based on their location in the periodic table oxygen and selenium have similar properties
the most useful source of chemical information about the elements is a periodic table
a vertical column of blocks in the periodic table is called? group
Elements in a group in the periodic table can be expected to have similar properties
which of the following observations is quantitaive? the liquid boils at 100 degrees C
Quantitative observations are recorded using numerical information
Standards are chosen because they are reproducible in another laboratory
The SI standard units for length and mass are meter and kilogram
the symbol for the metric unit used to measure mass is g
the symbol that represents the measured unit for volume is ML
the SI base unit for time is the second
to determine density the quantities that must be measured are volume and mass
to calculate the density of an object divide its mass by its volume
poor precision in scientific measurement may arise from both human error and the limitations of the measuring instrument.
A nuclear particle that has about the same mass as a proton, but with no electrical charge, is called neutron
who discovered the nucleus by bombarding gold foil with positively charged particles? Rutherford
Experiments with cathode rays led to the discovery of the electron
