1. 0 °F
2. 32 °F
3. -273.15 °F
4. -459.67 °F
32.

What is absolute zero on the Celsius scale?

1. 0 °C
2. 273.15 °C
3. -459.67 °C

33.
A planet’s atmospheric pressure is such that water there boils at a lower temperature than it does at sea level on Earth. If a Celsius scale is derived on this planet, will it be the same as that on Earth?
1. The Celsius scale derived on the planet will be the same as that on Earth, because the Celsius scale is independent of the freezing and boiling points of water.
2. The Celsius scale derived on that planet will not be the same as that on Earth, because the Celsius scale is dependent and derived by using the freezing and boiling points of water.
3. The Celsius scale derived on the planet will be the same as that on Earth, because the Celsius scale is an absolute temperature scale based on molecular motion, which is independent of pressure.
4. The Celsius scale derived on the planet will not be the same as that on Earth, but the Fahrenheit scale will be the same, because its reference temperatures are not based on the freezing and boiling points of water.
34.

What is the difference between the freezing point and boiling point of water on the Reaumur scale?

1. The boiling point of water is 80° on the Reaumur scale.
2. Reaumur scale is less than 120°.
3. 100°
4. 80°

What is buoyancy?
1. Buoyancy is a downward force exerted by a solid that opposes the weight of an object.
2. Buoyancy is a downward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed object.
3. Buoyancy is an upward force exerted by a solid that opposes the weight an object.
4. Buoyancy is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed object.
38.

#### 11.3Phase Change and Latent Heat

41.

Upon what does the required amount of heat removed to freeze a sample of a substance depend?

1. The mass of the substance and its latent heat of vaporization
2. The mass of the substance and its latent heat of fusion
3. The mass of the substance and its latent heat of sublimation
4. The mass of the substance only
42.

What do latent heats, Lf and Lv, depend on?

1. Lf and Lv depend on the forces between the particles in the substance.
2. Lf and Lv depend on the mass of the substance.
3. Lf and Lv depend on the volume of the substance.
4. Lf and Lv depend on the temperature of the substance.
