Science Quiz M3N1 Chemistry

  1. What do we call a chemical reaction that releases heat and raises the temperature of the surroundings?
  2. What the name of the compound with the formula C6H12O6?
  3. What is the common name of an Erlenmeyer flask?
  4. What is dangerous about a Bunsen flame that has a completely YELLOW flame?
  5. What do we call the process by which a liquid becomes a gas at any temperature above its freezing point?
  6. PLEASE name you House (Alexandria, Sempringham, Castille, Avalon)
  7. Please give your form class.


  1. EXOTHERMIC: This type of reaction releases more energy when chemical bonds are made than the energy that is needed to break the bonds in the reactants. This causes a rise in the temperature of the surroundings.
  2. GLUCOSE: It is produced in photosynthesis and used in respiration. It joins up (polymerise) to form sugar and starch
  3. CONICAL: Looks like an upside down ice-cream cone. It is named after the German chemist Emil Erlenmeyer, who created it in 1860.
  4. SOOT is produced: The yellow flame is due to hot un burnt carbon particles (soot particulates) that are a pollutant and a major cause of concern as a carcinogen.
  5. EVAPORATION: The particles of the liquid have different amounts of heat energy and some have sufficient to break the bonds holding them in the liquid state and become a gas.
