Name: ______________________ Section Number: ____________________ SID: _______________________ T.A. Name: ________________________ Exam information, extra directions, and useful hints to maximize your score:
• Write your name on all 8 pages.
There are two parts to the exam: 1) multiple choice and 2) short answer problems.
For the multiple choice problems, fill in the ScantronTM form AND circle the answer on your exam.
Answer the questions you know how to do first, then work on the questions you skipped.
Show all work on the short answer problems for which you want credit and do not forget to include units!

B.) Energy is released because wood and all organic materials have high energy bonds.
C.) When wood burns, its weak bonds break to combine with the stronger oxygen-oxygen
double bonds, releasing energy.
D.) When you burn wood, the products are more stable than the reactants so energy is released.
E.) When wood is a reactant, its high energy bonds release energy when they break. Page 4 of 4

the number of A2 molecules decreases.
B.) This reaction favors reactants at all temperatures because the A2 molecules have a bond which
makes them more stable.
C.) This reaction favors reactants at lower temperatures because heat is absorbed.
D.) This reaction favors reactants at higher temperatures because heat is absorbed.
