4. Describe the relationship between the solute, the solvent, and the concentration of a solution.

5. How does an ionic bond differ from a covalent bond?

6. Why is it necessary for oxidation and reduction reactions to occur in pairs?

7. Define the Three States of Matter?

8. State the difference between endergonic and exergonic reactions.

9. What is the role of enzymes in chemical reactions occurring in living things? Explain how a catalyst affects a reaction.
10.  What is the pH Scale, and what does its range of values mean?
11.  Draw and Label a model of a Chlorine (Cl) atom. Is this atom stable? Why or Why not?
12. Describe the difference between an oxidation and reduction reaction.

13. An oxygen atom has six electrons in its outermost energy level. Explain why two oxygen atoms must share four electrons when they form a covalent bond.
