This is a 10-question characteristic properties quiz covering characteristic properties such as melting point, boiling point, density, etc. This quiz does NOT require the knowledge of different materials’ specific characteristic properties, rather it focuses on that characteristic properties do not change, and they can be used to identify materials. Questions mimic how standardized tests generally ask about this topic.
Example of a Question:
You find an object made of pure metal. What could you do to identify what type of metal the object is made of?
a. Determine its melting point and compare it to the melting points of other metals.
b. Measure its length and compare it to the length of other metals.
c. Determine its volume and compare it to the volume of other metals.
d. Measure its mass and compare it to the mass of other metals.
