We use this quiz when we cover pure substances versus mixtures or properties of matter.
This is a 10 question quiz covering characteristic properties including melting point, boiling point, density, etc. This quiz does NOT require the knowledge of different materials' specific characteristic properties, rather it focuses on that characteristic properties do not change, and they can be used to identify materials.
Example of a Question:
You find an object made of pure metal. What could you do to identify what type of metal the object is made of?
a. Determine its melting point and compare it to the melting points of other metals.
b. Measure its length and compare it to the length of other metals.
c. Determine its volume and compare it to the volume of other metals.
d. Measure its mass and compare it to the mass of other metals.
