Remember the mean! So let’s say that you could complete only parts (a) and (b) on the required equilibrium problem. That’s 4 or 5 points out of 10, tops. Are you doomed? Of course not. You’re above average. If this test is hard on you, it’s probably just as hard on everybody else. Remember: You don’t need anywhere near a perfect score to get a 5, and you can leave half the test blank and still get a 4! STRATEGIES FOR CRACKING THE FREE RESPONSE SECTION This section is here to test whether you can translate chemistry into English.

4 liters at STP. 11. B Neutral sodium in its ground state has the electron configuration shown in choice (C). Sodium forms a bond by giving up its one valence electron and becoming a positively charged ion with the same electron configuration as neon. 12. D As we move from left to right across the periodic table within a single period (from sodium to chlorine), we add protons to the nuclei, which progressively increases the pull of each nucleus on its electrons. So chlorine will have a higher first ionization energy, greater electronegativity, and a smaller atomic radius.
