All of the above are correct. e. None of the above is correct. 2. A pure solid decomposes on heating, yielding a solid and a gas, each of which is a pure substance. From this we can reasonably conclude that a. the original solid is not an element. b. at least one of the products is an element. c. both products are elements. d. both (a) and (b) are true e. None of these are true 3. Which statement about balanced chemical equations is FALSE? a. The net charge of the reactants must equal the net charge of the products. b. The total mass of the reactants must equal the total mass of the products. c. The total number of atoms in the reactants must equal the total number of atoms in the products. d. The total number of moles of reactants must equal the total number of moles of products. e. Gaseous reactions for which the number of moles of reactants equals the number of moles of products are not accompanied by a change in volume if the temperature and pressure remain constant. 4. The gaseous elements H 2 and O 2 react explosively to form water (H 2 O). 3.00 L of H 2 is mixed with 2.00 L of O 2 and the mixture is ignited in a strong steel vessel.
