									Chapter 2:

1. Use the atomic theory, explain the difference in the following two statements:
  (a) Nitrogen dioxide is a compound of nitrogen and oxygen. (b) Air is a mixture
  composed mostly of nitrogen and oxygen.
2. How does the atomic theory account for the fact that when 1.000 g of water is
  decomposed into its elements, 0.111 g of hydrogen and 0.889 g of oxygen are
  obtained regardless of the source of the water?
3. A chemist prepared a series of compounds containing only sulfur and fluorine
  and determined the amount of each element in each compound.

5. Natural gas (methane) burns in the presence of oxygen to produce water, carbon
  dioxide, and heat. We know that 4.0 g of natural gas requires 16.0 g of oxygen for
  complete combustion and that 9.0 g of water is produced in this reaction. Can the mass
  of carbon dioxide produced be determined from this information? Explain.
