Class test 1 – Semester 1

Section A  – Introduction to Chemistry 


What is Chemistry? Why do we study it and how do we study it? Make sure you give me details. I am looking for the steps involved in “how we study it?” and the “general thing we do”


What are ALL the SI units used in Chemistry and why are they important for scientific discoveries? Make sure you show what each symbol means and what it measures


Mr. Wilkinson wants to make some toothpaste. He makes the CORRECT measurement of 250ml of Toothpaste (using 15g of baking soda). After making this he wants to change the amount of baking soda to see how much toothpaste is made. Here are the results:

– 2.5g of baking soda = 100ml toothpaste.
– 5g of baking soda = 150ml toothpaste.
– 7.5g of baking soda = 175 ml toothpaste.
– 10g of baking soda=200ml toothpaste

DRAW a GRAPH showing these measurements – include the CORRECT measurement. Marks will be given for the neatness of the graph to. Not just the “right” graph. WHY are Graphs very important for us all to be able to make and read?


Mr. Wilkinson asked Daniel Chinn of 11A to measure FIVE cups of 100ml of water for an experiment. Daniel measured it and got these measurements:

– 115ml
– 110ml
– 114ml
– 116ml
– 110ml

Work out (tell me) the PERCENTAGE ERROR. Then tell me why we need to know the percentage error? You should have either a + or – sign. Tell me what your sign means.


Convert (change) these SI units and round off these numbers. Remember – HOW MANY significant figures?

– 100KPA to PA
– 102MPA to DPA
– 50G to MG
– 10M to CM
– 10MM to KM
– 100HL to dLl

– 50G to KG
– 2.665
– 3.675
– 0.2589
– 1.752
– 9.6351
– 2.0000365

Section B  – Atoms 


How did Democritus come to his ideas about matter? Why is this important for you? What were his 2 ideas?


If you want to describe your friend – how do you do this? If you want to describe matter – how would you do this? Scientists describe matter using some words. What are these words? (Name two or more) Tell me what they mean? And give me two examples for each. Hint: It was in your spot quiz and second quiz. I talked about them last Monday and Tuesday.


Tell me what each of these words mean? Why is it important to understand what an Atom is and how it works?









Draw a molecule and tell me what will happen if this molecule is heated up.
