DEC's Software Distribution Center.
- METEST-Practice in the metric system units for measuring
length, mass and volume. Consists of a sequence of multiple
choice conversion problems that utilize the units most frequently
encountered in science courses.
- DENSITY-This exercise deals with the concept of density. Five
different problems are presented, involving the relationships
between the fundamental physical qualities of mass, volume and
density. Each problem requires some application of the formula:
DENSITY = MASS / VOLUME
- ELECTRONS-Drill in identifying the number of electrons
having principal quantum numbers 1,2,3, or 4 in elements with
atomic numbers from 1-22.
- ATOM-Problems giving the atomic number of an element
which lies between LITHIUM and TITANIUM on the periodic
table. Student required to describe structure of this atom
regarding the number protons, neutrons and electrons in
various s and p orbitals.
- PERIODD-Exercise giving the student practice in using the
periodic table and applying the Periodic Law. Questions require
an understanding of the relationships which exist between
elements and their position in the periodic table.
- COMPOS-Quantitative relationships between the elements that
compose simple binary compounds. Compound selected at random
from 42 possible combinations of six anions and seven
cations. Questions asked concerning percent composition and
relative number of grains and moles.
- EQUATI-Quantitative relationships in chemical reactions,
stoichiometry. Students are provided with six balanced
equations and must answer a sequence of questions concerning
quantitative relationships between substances in three of the
- RAOULT-Practice in solving problems which deal with the
concentration of a solution and its freezing point, and the
determination of molecular weight.
- MOLAR-Relationship between the moles and grams of a solute
and the volume and molarity of the solution.
- GASLAW-Relationships between temperature, pressure and
volume of ideal gases. Practice in applying Boyle's Law,
Charlie's Law and the Combined Gas Law.
