semester two final review key units 7 and 8

Below are the types of questions you can expect to see on your final for Fundamentals. The topics are
arranged in the order that we learned the concepts. If there are problems you do not understand, or need
additional practice on, please revisit that unit’s review sheet from my website.
In addition to a periodic table, scientific calculator and ion chart, you may also use this HANDWRITTEN
review sheet. You may choose to answer directly on this sheet or on a separate sheet of paper and attach it.
1. Definitions to Know: Solid, Liquid, Gas, Phase change, temperature, heat, pressure, and absolute zero.
Solid: one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being liquid, gas, and plasma). It is
characterized by structural rigidity and resistance to changes of shape or volume
Liquid: nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shape of its container but retains a (nearly)
constant volume independent of pressure
Gas: One of four main states of matter, composed of molecules in constant random motion. Unlike a
solid, a gas has no fixed shape and will take on the shape of the space available.
Phase change: A transition between solid, liquid, and gaseous phases which involves energy
Temperature: Measure of the average kinetic energy of the particles in a substance
Heat: A form of thermal energy that is present in all matter
Pressure: force per unit area

1. Define the following terms: polarity, surface tension, vapor pressure, specific heat, and capillary
POLARITY: Polarity is the separation of charges, positive and negative that can describe a bond or an
entire molecule and is caused by differences in electronegativity.
SURFACE TENSION: The tendency for molecules at the surface of a liquid to be pulled inward resulting
in a smooth surface.
VAPOR PRESSURE: The vapor pressure of a liquid is the equilibrium pressure of a vapor above its liquid
(or solid)
SPECIFIC HEAT: The amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1g of substance by 1°C.
CAPILLARY ACTION: The rise of liquids up a narrow tube
2. Draw four water molecules. Label the types of bonds (covalent vs. hydrogen), oxygen atoms,
hydrogen atoms, and respective charges on the atoms.
H = Hydrogen atoms
O = Oxygen atoms
Hydrogen bonds
Covalent bonds
3. Is water polar or nonpolar? Explain. Water is a polar molecule because the oxygen is more
electronegative that the hydrogen
4. Why is water considered the universal solvent? Water is considered the universal solvent because it
has the ability to dissolve many substances.
5. What are the special properties of water and why do they occur? High surface tension, high specific
heat, low vapor pressure, capillarity, less dense in the solid state; these properties are due to the
hydrogen bonds
6. Explain why solid ice is less than liquid water with regard to particle arrangement. Ice molecules align
themselves in a regular lattice rather than more randomly as in the liquid form. It happens that the
lattice arrangement allows water molecules to be more spread out than in a liquid, and, thus, ice is less
dense than water.
7. Why does a substance like sugar dissolve in water, but oil does not?
Water is a polar molecule and sugar is polar (like dissolves like). Oil is nonpolar so it will not dissolve.
1. Define the following terms: solution, solvent, solute, dilute, concentrated, dissociate, immiscible,
solubility, saturated, supersaturated, and unsaturated.
SOLUTION: a homogeneous mixture where one substance is dissolved inside of another.
SOLVENT: the substance that does the dissolving
SOLUTE: the substance that is dissolved
DILUTE: a solution that has excess solvent; the solution has a lower concentration of solute per solvent
CONCENTRATED: a solution that contains more a higher concentration of solute per solvent
DISSOCIATE: when ionic compounds break into their respective ions completely
SOLUBILITY: the measure of the amount of solute that can be dissolved in a given amount of solvent
SATURATED: a solution where the maximum of solute is added to solvent
SUPERSATURATED: a solution where there are more solute particles than are needed to form a saturated
UNSATURATED: a solution where there are less solute particles than are needed to form a saturated

1. Boiling point elevation 2. Freezing point depression 3. Vapor pressure depression 4. Osmotic pressure
