Question 1 what happens during a neutralization reaction?

A neutralization reaction is when an acid and a base react to form water and a salt and involves the combination of H+ ions and OH- ions to generate water. The neutralization of a strong acid and strong base has a pH equal to 7.

  • New substances called SALTS and water are formed in neutralization reactions.
  • For example, hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide solution react together to form water and sodium chloride solution. The H+ ions and OH– ions produce the water, and the Na+ ions and Cl– ions produce the sodium chloride, NaCl(aq).

Based on the observational evidence, is it possible that dark matter doesn't really exist

Dark matter has been given this name because it doesn’t seem to interact with regular matter in any way. It doesn’t collide with it, or absorb energy from it. We can’t see it or detect it with any of our instruments. We only know it’s there because we can see the effect of its gravity.

Amino acids cannot be broken down to provide energy.

False, Dietary proteins are first broken down to individual amino acids by various enzymes and hydrochloric acid present in the gastro-intestinal tract. These amino acids are further broken down to α-keto acids which can be recycled in the body for generation of energy, and production of glucose or fat or other amino acids.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/02/2020 - 04:26 PM

What happens to the temperature of water between the time ice melts and water boils (this is partially quoted from a question)? Also, what change occurs in temperature after water starts boiling (this is also from a booklet)? Thank you and please explain your thoughts. This is based on the phase changes of water, and you should refer to a graph on the phase changes of water.

Your first statement is very ambiguous so I will give it the best shot as to what you are saying.
The temperature, between the point of ice melting and water boiling, is increasing as water is in its liquid state.
Now during a phase change, or while the water is boiling, the temperature remains constant because the energy being added is being consumed to complete the phase change.
But if you're looking at the phase change graph, the points of positive slopes, are moments when energy is increasing as the water, in whatever state, is increasing. But when the slope of the graph is 0, the water is changing phases and the temperature remains constant! I hope I explained that so you could understand it, and I hope this helps you!

The specific heat of nickel is 0.44 J/g*⁰C. How much energy needed to change the temperature of 95.4g of nickel from 22⁰C to 32⁰C. Is the energy absorbed or released?

Answer : The amount of energy needed is, 419.76 J and the energy is absorbed.

Solution :

Formula used :

Q=m\times c\times \Delta T=m\times c\times (T_{final}-T_{initial})


Q = heat gained or absorbed = ?

m = mass of nickel = 95.4 g

c = specific heat of nickel = 0.44J/g^oC      

\Delta T=\text{Change in temperature}  

T_{final} = final temperature = 32^oC

T_{initial} = initial temperature = 22^oC

Now put all the given values in the above formula, we get

Q=95.4g\times 0.44J/g^oC\times (32-22)^oC


The value of Q is positive that means energy is absorbed.

Therefore, the amount of energy needed is, 419.76 J and the energy is absorbed.

How has telephones change over time

Telephones began as large, clunky devices capable of transmitting and receiving voice messages over short distances, then evolved to lighter, transportable cellular devices capable of enabling communications over large distances. In the United States, Alexander Graham Bell receives credit for producing the first telephone in 1876. Bell established a basic system of communications allowing people to talk with each other remotely over short distances through receivers. As with other technologies, phone technologies improved dramatically and rapidly following Bell's introduction of the telephone to American life. In addition to improvements in the device itself, transmissions methods improved as well. By 1900, telephone companies established communication lines through many American cities, allowing people to connect over larger distances. These lines contained special coils to reduce static and expedite transmissions. Telephone calls remained limited to local regions within the borders of the United States through 1915. Then, Alexander Graham Bell completed the first transcontinental call with Thomas Watson. Rotary phones emerged just before 1920, and a numbering plan arrived in the late 1940s to allow fast and direct connections between callers. In 1956, telephone cables permitted transcontinental calls for the first time. In the 1960s and 1970s, phone use extended to emergency service and the military. Portable phones arrived in the early 1970s; by 2000, thousands of Americans carried lightweight, compact phones wherever they went. AND THEY HAVE IPHONES NOW XDD
