  • Q8
    An energy pyramid is illustrated. Which statement BEST explains the flow of energy as it moves through the different levels?
    Question Image
    energy increases as it is gained from the environment
    energy is transferred as it is produced by organisms in the next level
    energy is unavailable because it is used up by the organisms at Level 1
    energy decreases as it is lost as heat to the environment

  • Q12
    A student performs an experiment and the results are shown. BEFORE: Iron filings are brown, small, and magnetic; copper sulfate crystals are blue, brittle, and not magnetic. AFTER: The copper formed was reddish, solid, and not magnetic; iron sulfide solution was colorless and not magnetic. Which statement BEST supports that a chemical reaction took place?
    a physical change in the iron occured
    the original substances were present after
    a new substance was formed
    changes in color occured

  • Q13
    Ocean water can be distilled to remove the salt and other dissolved substances, producing pure water. Which BEST describes the feasibility of distilling ocean water as a means of supplying freshwater to people in areas where the supply of freshwater is lacking?
    Distilling ocean water involves the use of hazardous chemicals, and the water would be contaminated after the process was complete
    Distilling ocean water is a simple process, but current technology does not exist to produce such a large supply of freshwater
    Distilling ocean water is too expensive of a process to produce enough freshwater supply to all areas where freshwater is lacking
    Distilling ocean water would not produce enough freshwater to supply all areas where freshwater is lacking

  • Q17
    How does the concept of conservation of mass apply to chemical reactions?
    the reactants and products have exactly the same molecules
    the change in the amount of matter is equal to the change in energy
    the change in the amount of matter is only a small percentage of the total mass
    the reactants and products have exactly the same atoms

  • Q19
    This diagram shows pH ranges from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral, less than 7 being acidic, and greater than 7 being alkaline (basic). How does pollution affect the pH of a stream?
    Question Image
    When the acid rain finds its way into the stream, the pH in the stream can increase
    pollution corresponds with decreased chemosynthesis, which may cause long-term stability in pH
    pollution corresponds with decreased photosynthesis, which may cause long-term stability in pH
    When the acid rain finds its way into the stream, the pH in the stream can decrease
