We can use the particle diagrams to the right to represent water in the different phases of matter. Which statement below is not an accurate statement about the particle diagrams for the water phases. A B C A. The water molecule H2O is being represented as a black dot. B. Box B represents water as a liquid. C. Box A shows that solids have their own shape D. Box C shows that gases fill the container E. Box B shows that solids have some disorder 25. Models can be oversimplifications as well as sometimes just wrong in what they show. Which statement below is a reasonable critique of these particle diagrams. A. Water has the chemical formula H2O and therefore it is never appropriate A B C to model it as a black dot. B. Solid water (ice) actually floats on top of liquid water and so the particles in B, which represents liquid water, should be more tightly packed (more dense) than the particles in A, which represents ice. C. The molecules in the gas phase are always in motion and so static models like C, which represent gas molecules, make it seem like gas particles can stop moving. D. Water molecules take up 3 dimensions in space so it isn’t appropriate to use 2 dimensional diagrams. 26. Look at the periodic table given and pick the statement below that is the least accurate at the table. A. Most elements on the periodic table are solids at room temperature. B. Most elements on the periodic table are metals. C. Most elements on the periodic table have filled octets. D. The inert gases are Group 18. E. Elements in Groups 1 and 2 are in the s block. 8 Hunter College of the City University of New York Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry This page is intentionally left blank 9 ...
