It is OK to use your textbook, but if you can answers the questions without it that is OK too.

Do not press the RETURN or ENTER key while you are answering these questions. Your browser will interpret either the same as clicking on the Submit key.

Answer all of the questions below. If you do not know an answer enter CNA. However, it will help me the most if you answer each question with your best intuition/idea about what would be a reasonable answer.

First Name:

Last Name:


1. Write the formula and the name of the compound formed when the following substances are combined. (NOTE: Input fields can not correctly display subscripts or superscripts. So the formula H2O can only be entered as H2O.)




Ba and Br

Na and S

Mg and N


2. Complete the following table with as many answers as you can.

Name of Substance

Formula of Substance

potassium chlorate



calcium carbonate



dinitrogen tetroxide

3. Balance the following equations;

a) Fe(s) + H2O(l) ----> Fe3O4(s) + H2(g)

b) N2(g) + Cl2(g) ----> NCl3(g)

4. Determine the formula weight of each of the following substances in atomic mass units.

a) C amu

b) O2 amu

c) C8H18 amu

5. According to our discussion in Chapter 2 the atomic mass unit (amu) is related to grams in the following way;

1 amu = 1.66054 x 10-24 g

Using this relationship calculate the mass, in grams, of;

a) a hydrogen atom who has an RWAAM of 1.00794 amu; g

b) a molecule of Cl2 with a formula weight of 70.90 amu; g

c) a formula unit of NaCl with a formula weight of 58.43 amu; g

6. Is there anything about the questions that you feel you do not understand? List your concerns/questions.

7. If there is one question you would like to have answered in lecture, what would that question be?
