by Ron Kurtus (updated 9 February 2022)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is the shape of a falling water drop?

It has no shape

Somewhat spherical

The shape of its container

2. What eventually happens to a gas placed in an open container?

Much of it escapes as it spreads out

It turns to CO2

You cannot put a gas into an open container

3. Why does an exhaust fan in your kitchen work to get rid of smells?

It changes the bad smells to good smells

The exhaust fan is only used to get rid of the heat from the stove

It causes the gases to flow to the outside

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
