Here are some Exam I preview questions to assess your understanding of the material from chapters one and

two. I suggest that you dont work these problems until after you have studied a fair amount for the exam. Once you feel pretty confident that you understand the material go ahead and answer these questions, work them as if you were taking the exam, time yourself, then grade them honestly to see how youre doing. This preview is about the same length as the actual exam, although the exam has a bit more math work, so timing yourself will be helpful. I will send out the answers a little later in a separate document. These questions are not meant to be all inclusive in terms of what you should strive to learn, nor should they be considered a review sheet, but they do represent some of the type of problems you will see on the exam. The exam is 5 pages of problems so you should pace yourself at about one page every 10 minutes. Many of the questions can be answered in less than a minute. You might want to get as many points as you can on the easier, less mathematically involved problems, then work your way back to the harder problems. A total of 15 points will be on naming compounds from their formulas and writing formulas from their names. You cannot dawdle and expect to complete the exam. I will start it promptly at 10:00 a.m. so be on time, you know how parking can be, so be early! The tables at the end of this preview are what you will see on the exam as well as a B&W periodic table that has useful information, but does not have the names of the elements. I usually set up the exams so you can tear off the tables and such from the back of the exam for use during the exam. You will need to provide any scratch paper you use during the exam and youll need to turn those in with your exam. Dont forget your calculator, extra pencils, erasure, etc. No electronic devices (other than a calculator) are allowed, cell phones must be off and put away, everything else put away too, you know the drill. Dont forget your homework set 2 and quiz 1 are due on exam day, so to maximize your exam taking time, have those all ready to hand in when you come in the door, and then hand them in immediately.

18) The elements in the first column all form cations during the making of an ionic substance. The species in the first row all form anions during the making of an ionic substance (charges are provided on the polyatomic anions). Complete the table by filling in the boxes with the formulas of the compounds produced from the ions given by the intersecting rows and columns. Cl Mg Al K S OHCO32N PO43-

19) Circle T (for true) or F (for false) to indicate if the following statements are true or false. T F Prior to Rutherfords gold-foil experiment, it was commonly accepted that atoms consisted of a dense positively charged nucleus surrounded by a mostly empty region of space occupied by electrons. Protons are negatively charged particles found within the nucleus of an atom. To determine the atomic mass of an element you add the mass number to the atomic number and multiply by the relative abundance. Isotopes are atoms of the same element that have different mass numbers
