Forces & Energy $400 Question: Describe the energy transfer that takes place when a roller coaster train is pulled up the first hill, and then rolls over the hill to the bottom of the other side. And the answer is ….
Forces & Energy $400 Answer The potential energy increased as the train is pulled up the hill. The energy transfers to kinetic energy as the train rolls over the top and down the other side.
Forces & Energy $500 Question: A box is sliding down an inclined plane (a slope). What effect does the surface material of the plane have on the speed? What could you do to increase the speed of the box? And the answer is ….
Forces & Energy $500 Answer: To increase speed, you need to decrease friction. Ways to do this include: Make the surface of the slope less rough (it would slide faster on ice than on gravel). Add a viscous liquid (an oil, for example) to the surface.
Life Science $100 QuestionAn herbivore eats _______ and an omnivore eats _________. A. Animals … plants and animals B. Plants … only animals C. Animals … only plants D. Plants … plants and animals And the answer is ….
Life Science $100 Answer D. Plants … plants and animals Herbivores eat only plants. Omnivores eat plants and animals. (Carnivores eat only animals.)
Life Science $200 Question: The relationship of a flea and a dog is an example of: A.Commensalism B.Parasitism C.Predation D.Mutualism And the answer is ….
Life Science $200 Answer B. Parasitism (A type of symbiosis in which one organism benefits and the other is harmed.)
Life Science $300 Q: Name at least two differences between a plant cell and an animal cell. And the answer is ….
Life Science $300 Answer: Plant cells have cell walls and chloroplasts, while animal cells do not. Select this to see interactive cell models!
Life Science $400 Q: Name two examples of biotic factors and two examples of abiotic factors in an ecosystem. And the answer is ….
Life Science $400 Answer: Biotic factors are things that are living: animals, plants. Abiotic factors are things that are not living: rocks, water, sky, clouds, etc.
Life Science $500 Q: In order for a recessive genetic trait to be expressed as the phenotype, what must be true for each parent? And the answer is ….
Life Science $500 Answer: Each parent must have at least one allele for the recessive trait in order for it to be the phenotype of the offspring.
Chemistry $100 Q: Which of the following part of an atom has a negative charge: proton, electron, or neutron? And the answer is ….
Chemistry $100 A: Electron has a negative (-) charge. Proton has a positive (+) charge. Neutron has a neutral (zero) charge.
Chemistry $200 Q: For the element carbon, identify the atomic number, the atomic symbol, and the atomic mass in the picture below: And the answer is … C
Chemistry $200 A: The atomic number is 6 (on top), the atomic mass is (on bottom), and the atomic symbol is C (in center) C
Chemistry $300 Q: Part A: When valence electrons are transferred from one atom to another, what kind of bond is formed? Part B: When atoms share valence electrons, what kind of bond is formed? And the answer is ….
Chemistry $300 A: Part A: Ionic bonds Part B: Covalent bonds.
Chemistry $400 Q: What combination of reactants is likely to form an ionic bond? And the answer is ….
Chemistry $400 A: A reaction between an acid and a base is likely to form an ionic bond.
Chemistry $500 Q: Why are noble gases unlikely to combine with other substances? And the answer is ….
Chemistry $500 A: Noble gases are unlikely to combine with other substances because they have a full outer shell of electrons. This makes them very stable.
Earth/Space Science $100 Question: Is the solar system heliocentric or geocentric? A.Heliocentric: Sun is in center. B.Geocentric: Earth is in center. C.Heliocentric: Earth is in center. D. Geocentric: Sun is in center. And the answer is ….
Earth/Space Science $100 Answer: A. Heliocentric: Sun is in the center.
Earth/Space Science $200 Q: When we observe layers of sedimentary rock, what do the positions of the layers tell us about the relative ages of the layers? A.The youngest layer is on the bottom B.The position doesn’t tell us anything about age. C.The youngest layer is on the top. And the answer is ….
Earth/Space Science $200 Answer: C. The youngest layer is on the top. Image from
Earth/Space Science $300 Q: Describe at least two effects of Plate Tectonics. And the answer is ….
Earth/Space Science $300 A: Possible answers include: - Sea-floor spreading - Subduction (ocean plate collides with continental plate) - Mountain Ranges (when plates collide and push up) - Earthquakes (plates slide past each other) - Volcanoes & islands (magma rises from holes in crust) - Folding and faulting
Earth/Space Science $400 Q: Why are there tides in Earth’s oceans? A.The Earth tilts on its axis. B.The Earth spins so fast that it moves the water. C. The Moon’s gravitational pull moves the water in Earth’s oceans. And the answer is ….
Earth/Space Science $400 Answer: C. The Moon’s gravitational pull moves the water in Earth’s oceans.
Earth/Space Science $500 Q. How does the “red shift” of a star’s life provide evidence in support of the “Big Bang Theory?” And the answer is ….
Earth/Space Science $500 Answer: The “red shift” means that the star is moving farther away from the observer. The Big Bang Theory states that the universe continues to expand.
