Multiple choice questions

Try the following multiple choice questions to test your knowledge of this chapter. For each question there is one correct answer. The periodic table, physical constants and relative atomic masses needed for these problems are given on the inside covers of Chemistry, fourth edition by C.E. Housecroft and E.C. Constable. Once you have answered the questions, click on 'Submit Answers for Grading' to get your results.

If your lecturer has requested that you send your results, please complete the routing information found at the bottom of your graded page and then click on the 'E-Mail Results' button. Please do not forward your results unless your lecturer has specifically requested that you do so.
