(C) Boyle's Lawthat states that the volume and pressure of a gas are inversely proportional (D) VSEPR Law that states that shape of a molecule is due to electrons repelling each other (E) All of these are correctly named as a law or a theory. 4. Which of these statements is a consequence (follows from) the Law of Definite Proportion (composition)? 35 37 (A) All samples of chlorine contain the two isotopes,Cl and Cl, in the same ratio. (B) The mass of oxygen that is combined with a fixed mass of nitrogen in compounds containing only nitrogen and oxygen can be expressed as a ratio of nice numbers.

Which of the following statements about Rutherford's experiment is false? (A) Alpha particles were used as they are positive. (B) The particles were fired ata piece of aluminum foil. (C) Most of the particles passed through the foil, indicating that most of the atoms were empty space. (D) A very few particles bounced back, indicating the presence of a small, massive, positive nucleus. (E) One of Rutherford's assistants was Hans Geiger, who later invented the Geiger counter for detecting radioactivity. 6. Which assumption of Dalton’s atomic theory had to be revised or discarded because of the discovery of electrons? (A) The ultimate particles of matter are the atoms of elements, which are indivisible and indestructible. (B) All the atoms of a given element are alike in all respects. (C) The atoms of different elements differ in one or more properties. (D) Compounds are formed by combination of different kinds of atoms. (E) None of these 7. Under the modern atomic theory, which of the following statements is true? (A) Atoms contain the same number of protons and neutrons. (B) The mass of an atom in amu is approximated as the number of protons plus the number of neutrons present in the nucleus. (C) Atoms can be split into a nucleus and the electrons, but usually the electrons are stuck in the nucleus. (D) Different isotopes of an element contain different numbers of electrons. (E) The three primary sub-atomic particles differ only in their charge. 8. Which statement is true? (A) The elements may be broadly classified as metals, non-metals and noble gases. (B) Elements in a row in the periodic table have similar chemical properties. (C) In the periodic table that we use, the elements are arranged in order of increasing atomic number. (D) Rutherford's scattering experiment proved that all atoms contain electrons. (E) Experiments using the Cathode Ray Tube proved that all atoms contain electrons. 9. Which of the following atoms has a symbol not taken from its English name? (A) iron (B) cobalt (C) phosphorus (D) nickel (E) krypton 2 10. Which of the statements is true?
