(C) Newton's Second Law that force is equal to mass of an object times its acceleration. (D) Einstein's Law of Relativity that no object with mass can travel at the speed of light. (E) Dalton's Atomic Theory that matter is made up of tiny particles called atoms. 5. Which part of Dalton's Atomic Theory directly made fun of the alchemists? (A) All matter is made up of atoms, which are small, indivisible particles. (B) Atoms can not be created, destroyed nor transformed. (C) Atoms of a particular element are alike in all respects (D) Atoms of different elements are different from each other (E) Atoms can group together to form molecules. 6. Which of the following elements is NOT correctly matched with its symbol? (A) sodium is Na (B) phosphorus is P (C) chlorine is Cl (D) carbon is C (E) neon is N 7.

(A) an atom consists of a positively charged, massive nucleus that occupies very little volume and electrons that go round the nucleus (B) the number of electrons in an atom is equal to the number of protons (C) the mass of an atom is equal to the number of protons + the number of neutrons (D) isotopes of an atom contain different numbers of electrons (E) the mass of a proton is approximatelythe same as the mass of a neutron 13. Consider an atom of rhodium-102 ( Rh). It has: (A) 45 protons, 45 neutrons, 45 electrons (B) 45 protons, 57 neutrons, 45 electrons (C) 57 protons, 45 neutrons, 45 electrons (D) 57 protons, 45 neutrons, 57 electrons (E) 45 protons, 102 neutrons, 45 electrons 14. Tellurium consists of 3 common isotopes. Half of tellurium atoms have a mass of 127, and another 0.45 of tellurium atoms weigh 128. What is the mass of the remaining isotope? The atomic mass of tellurium is 127.6. (A) 126 (B) 127 (C) 129 (D) 130 (E) 131 15. Magnesium has an atomic mass of 24.3.
