Here are the answers to the science quiz we posted on Wednesday. This article has the questions, in case you didn’t see them.

1. Define atom. The smallest stable unit of matter in creation.

2. Define molecule. Two or more atoms linked together to make a substance with unique properties.

3. Fifty grams of a carbon disulfide can be broken down into 42.1 grams of sulfur and 7.9 grams of carbon. Is carbon disulfide made up of atoms or molecules? Carbon disulfide is a molecule

4. If you put iron near a magnet, the iron will be attracted to the magnet. Rust is made up of molecules which contain iron atoms, oxygen atoms, and hyrdrogen atoms. Rust is not attracted to a magnet. If rust contains iron atoms, and iron is attracted to a magnet, why isn’t rust attracted to a magnet? Because when an atom is a part of a molecule, the molecule doesn’t pick up every characteristic of the atoms. The atoms join together to make a new substance with unique qualities.

5. A statue is made out of copper and displayed outside. After many years, what color will the statue be? It will turn green over time.

6. Have scientists actually seen atoms? No, they have not.
