Magnesium + Oxygen —> Oxygen Magnesiate
Magnesium + Oxygen —> Magnesium Oxide
Magnesium + Oxygen —> Magnesium Oxide + Water
Magnesium + Oxygen —> Magnesium + Carbon Dioxide
Aria needs to make a salt solution for her school project. She needs to mix the salt and water in order to obtain the solution. Which of the following would be a better option with relation to its surface area to volume ratio, in order to achieve the salt solution in the least possible time:
Sea salt, as it decreases the surface area to volume ratio as it has tiny particles
Himalayan Rock Salt, this decreases the surface area to volume ratio as it is wider
Table Salt, this increases the surface area to volume ratio as it has several tiny particles
Himalayan Rock Salt, this increases the surface area to volume ratio as it is larger
When a car is driven, it uses fuel in order for it to function. A combustion reaction occurs simultaneously. During this reaction, energy is produced and transferred to the surroundings. Which of the following is not an example of how this energy can be transferred to the surroundings:
Motion of the car in the forward direction (Kinetic Energy)
Large noises as the car moves (Sound Energy)
Light sparks when the car brakes (Light Energy)
Heating of the car (Heat Energy)
A reaction that occurs in the atmosphere follows the following word equation:
Hydrogen Peroxide + Catalase —> Oxygen gas + Water + Catalase
Catalase is present before and after the reaction. What is the role of the Catalase in reaction?
It is an impurity
It is an enzyme
It is an unreactive solid
It is a gas in the atmosphere
Sara goes to the chemistry lab and observes all of the chemicals in the storage unit. On one of these chemicals that is unidentified, she observes the following symbol. What can she interpret from this symbol?

It is a flammable chemical
It is a corrosive chemical
It is a hazardous chemical
During a party, several balloons are released into the atmosphere. These balloons are filled with helium and float in the air because:
There is more air than helium
Helium gas is as dense as air
Helium is equally dense as air
Helium is less dense than air

Oceanic voyages during the Age of Sail were fraught with danger. In 1949 Vasco da Gama, was a sailor on his first voyage, who lost 116 of 170 men as they reported malaise and sore joints.
Later on, they developed easily bruised skin, bleeding gums and reopening of old wounds. What was this mystery disease?
Every morning Samuel has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for breakfast before he goes to school. He learnt online that consuming too many carbohydrates is bad for one's health, so he decided to perform a test to see if the sandwich he enjoys every morning contains starch. When he puts Iodine solution on the bread sample, what should he observe if it contains starch?
The sample stays brownish-yellow.
The sample expands to twice its original size
The sample turns purple in colour
The sample turns blue-black in colour
Formula One is an international auto racing competition that occurs every year, in which multiple cars compete for 1st position on the circuit. Lewis Hamilton, 7 time world champion is known for achieving the best results on the grid by using his famous Mercedes car.

The diagram shown below is that of the human digestive system. Which of the following processes occurs in that section of the system labeled above and what is its significance :
Ingestion: Increasing the surface area of food digested by breaking it into smaller molecules
Egestion: Rids the body of toxins and waste materials produced by cells
Absorption: Digestive Juices and large surface area enable more molecules of food to be absorbed
Defaecation: Addition of digestive juices to remove pathogens and help digest fats
