Sample Practice Test Questions
In a eukaryotic cell, which organelles deal with proteins?
all of these deal with proteins
The nucleus of a eukaryotic cell contains the genetic material of the cell and is surrounded by cytoplasm which contains many organelles. Ribosomes produce proteins, endoplasmic reticulum helps synthesize proteins and fats, and Golgi apparatus prepares proteins for use.
Capacitors are charged by what type of current?
Capacitors store voltage and are used in circuits as temporary batteries. Capacitors are charged by DC current (AC current passes through a capacitor) and that stored charge can later be dissipated into the circuit as needed. Capacitors are often used to maintain power within a system when it is disconnected from its primary power source or to smooth out or filter voltage within a circuit.
If BD = 22 and AD = 29, AB = ?
The entire length of this line is represented by AD which is AB + BD:
AD = AB + BDSolving for AB:AB = AD - BD
The dimensions of this cube are height (h) = 5, length (l) = 1, and width (w) = 4. What is the volume?
The volume of a cube is height x length x width:
v = h x l x w
v = 5 x 1 x 4
v = 20
Elements in the same group in the Periodic Table of the Elements have the same:
number of electrons in their outer electron shell
The columns of the Periodic Table are called groups and all elements in a group have the same number of electrons in their outer electron shell. The group that an element occupies generally determines its chemical properties as the number of outer shell electrons establishes the way it reacts with other elements to form molecules. So, because each element has the same number of electrons in its outer shell, each has similar reactivity.
Which of the following is not true about simple magnets?
opposite poles repel each other
Simple magnets have two poles, north and south, and opposite poles attract each other (N attracts S, S attracts N). Likewise, the same pole of two magnets repel (N repels N, S repels S). The Earth has a magnetic field and North and South Poles which enables the use of a magnetic compass to determine direction.
