Which is a compound? A. Nickel and oxygen reacting chemically B. A spoon made of pure silver C. A sandwich with bread,meat, and cheese D. Long and short nails in a box
Solution 1
(A.) Nickel and oxygen reacting chemically could create a compound. (Most likely some sort of oxide)

The pure silver is only made up of one element, so it can't be a compound.

The sandwich and all it's components may contain chemical compounds, but is not a compound in itself.

While it is possible that the material the nails are made out of is a compound, we are not given this information. Simply stating that nails (no matter the size) are in a box, does not make it a compound.

Question
Definition: One of a class of elements having properties intermediate to metals and nonmetals.
Solution 1

Answer:

Metalloids

Explanation:

Metalloids are compounds whose properties are intermediate between those of metals and non metals. That is, they do not behave as pure metals, neither do they behave as pure nonmetals. For instance, the electrical conductivity of metals decreases with temperature while nonmetals do not conduct electricity at all under any condition. However, metalloids conductivity increases with increase in temperature because they conduct electricity in a manner slightly different from the manner in which metals conduct electricity.

Solution 2
Metalloids are a class of elements having properties intermediate to metals and nonmetals.
Question
Why does decreasing the temperature of orange juice increase its pH level? Is it something to do with the chemical equilibrium?
Solution 1
Because you are getting rid of the acid in the juice so you are balancing the equilibrium because you have lesd acid and the base is the same making it more equal
Question
Gas in a balloon occupies 3.3 L. What volume will it occupy if the pressure is changed from 100.0 kPa to 90.0 kPa (at constant temperature).
Solution 1

Boyle's law says "the pressure of a fixed amount of an ideal gas is inversely proportional to its volume when the temperature is constant".

P α 1/V

Where P is pressure of the gas and V is the volume of the gas.

Hence, we can use Boyle's law for two different situations as,

P
V = PV

P₁ = 100.0 kPa = 1 x 10⁵ Pa

V₁ = 3.3 L

P₂ = 90 x 10³ Pa

V₂ =?


By substitution,
    1 x 10⁵ Pa x 3.3 L = 90 x 10³ Pa x V₂

                            V
= 3.7 L

Hence, if the pressure drops from 100 kPa to 90 kPa, then the volume of the gas will be 3.7 L.

Here, we made an assumption as the gas is an ideal gas.

Question
How is a circle different from an ellipse
Solution 1
A circle is a closed curved shape where all the lines from the edge to the center are the same length. An ellipse varies in length.
Question
Which aqueous solution of Kl freezes at the lowest temperature? a) 2 mol of Kl in 1,000. g of water b) 1 mol of Kl in 1,000. g of water c) 2 mol of Kl in 500. g of water d) 1 mol of Kl in 500. g of water
Solution 1

Answer:

c) 2 mol of Kl in 500. g of water

Explanation:

Colligative properties such as melting and boiling points and osmotic pressure all depend on the amount of solute present. The more the concentration of solute present, the greater the degree of display of colligative properties by a solution

Considering the options given, 2 mol of Kl in 500. g of water has the highest concentration and is expected to freeze at the lowest temperature.

Solution 2
The correct answer is B.
Lowering of the freezing point can be a colligative property. The greatest concentration of mass of salt in the water will have what we call the lowest freezing point.
For example the least amount of water in the greatest amount of salt.
Question
Why is a hydraulic system useful?
Solution 1
Hewoooo!!!

Hydraulics are used in the braking system of a car. They cause a relatively small force from the driver's foot to be multiplied to produce a greater force, which acts equally on all four brake pads. ... The transmitted pressure acts on this larger area to produce a larger load force on the brake pads.

i think they are helpful, it just depends what your using them for :D
Question

Question
State one advantage of building a space station in orbit instead of sending it all up in one piece.
Solution 1
Building a space station in orbit is a safety measure. If a rocket fails to bring up the entire space station in one piece it would be extremely expensive to build a new one. Bringing it up in multiple places ensures less money would be lost if the rocket fails.
