b. Distilled water
c. Aqueous sodium chloride
d. Air at Standard Temperature and Pressure
9. Which subatomic particles are equal in mass?
a. proton, electron
b. neutron, proton
c. electron, neutrino
d. electron, neutron
10. Which of the following is NOT attributed to the work of J.J Thomson?
a. Atoms are made up of electrons have the same ‘charge to mass’ ratio
b. Atoms are made up of nuclei that are small, dense, and positively charged.
c. Atoms are made up of particles that are negatively charged.
d. Cathode rays deflect in an electrical field.
Keep in mind that Thomson’s major contribution did not include the discovery of the
nucleus. We can Thank Rutherford for that.

electron was ___.
a. John Dalton
b. Sir William Crookes
c. J.J. Thomson
d. Robert Millikan
e. William Rutherford
12. Which of the following is NOT correct:
a. Alpha particles are positively charged
b. Beta particles can be stopped by plywood
c. Gamma particles possess no charge
d. Beta particles are smaller than alpha particles
While gamma rays might be considered particle-waves as are other forms of
electromagnetic radiation, they are not particles in the same sense as alpha and beta
