2nd Semester Science Exam

a mixture in which particles can be seen and easily separated by settling or filtration


is a suspension easily mixed?


a well-mixed mixture


how do you separate the particles in a solution?

Boil the water or let the water evaporate

All ___________ have 2 parts.


the part of the solution present in the largest amount; dissolves other substances


the part of a solution present in the smaller amount; dissolved


what is the "universal solvent


How does a solution form?

particles of the solute leave each other and become surrounded by particles of the solvent





What happens when ionic solids dissolve in water?

Positive and negative ions are attracted to polar water molecules, water surrounds each ion as it leaves the crystal (so the compound breaks apart into its ions).

What happens when molecular solids dissolve in water?

They break into individual neutral molecules but the covalent bonds are not disturbed. The compounds stay together but the molecules separate.

_____________ dissolved in water conduct electricity; ____________ do not.

Ionic compounds, molecular

how much solution is dissolved in a certain amount of solvent


a little solute is dissolved

Dilute Solution

Has a lot of solute dissolved

Concentrated Solution

The measure of how well a solute can dissolve in a solvent at a given temperature


no more solute will dissolve

Saturated Solution

more solute can be dissolved

Unsaturated Solution

What can be used to determine the identity of a compound?


What is solubility affected by?

temperature and the type of solvent

What is the difference in solubility between solids and gasses

typically, more solid can be dissolved in a liquid when temp. rises; but gases are LESS soluble when temp. goes up.

Will a solvent that is polar dissolve a solute that is nonpolar?


What dissolve in polar solvents?

Ionic and polar compounds

What does not dissolve in polar solvents?

nonpolar compounds

What do solutes do to solvents?

Lower the freezing point; raise the boiling point

what kind of rock is made of calcium carbonate?


what is a hydrogen ion?

ion found in acids, positive, an atom in hydrogen that has lost an electron

what do acids in water separate into?

hydrogen ions and negative ions

any substance that produces h ions in water can be called what?


what is hydroxide ion?

ion found in bases, negative, oxygen and hydrogen

any substance that produces hydroxide ion in water can be called?


what do bases in water separate into

hydroxide ions and positive metal ions

a ______ base produces more hydroxide ions than a ____ base

strong; weak

a ______ acid produces more hydrogen than a _____ acid


range of values from 0 to 14 that expresses the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution

ph scale

when the ph of a solution is low, the concentration of the hydrogen ions is?


a reaction between and acid and base is called?

is the ph the same in all parts of the digestive system?


what refers to how well an acid or base produces ions in water?


what is made from the positive ion of a base and the negative ion of an acid


process which breaks complex molecules of foods into smaller molecules


what enzyme breaks carbohydrates into sugar molecules? where? what ph?
