Question and answer
A scientist heats a flexible container full of neon gas. What will most likely happen to the container as the gas absorbs heat? It will shrink, because the neon atoms will break apart into smaller
pieces. It will expand, because the neon atoms will get larger. It will expand, because the neon atoms will move more quickly and get farther apart. It will shrink, because the neon atoms will lose energy as heat, and move closer together.
As you heat gas up, the molecules move more rapidly. This pushes harder on the outside of the container, forcing it to expand. Atoms do not change in size. So, the answer to the second question is C.

Which of the following would most likely happen if water did not form hydrogen bonds? A. Water would exist only as a solid. B. Water would be able to dissolve all ionic compounds. C. Water would not expand when it freezes. D. Water would not exist on Earth.
Weegy: If water didn't form hydrogen bonds, then the best answer is that it would be a gas instead of a liquid, but this isn't one of the choices. I suppose the next best is that it would not expand when it freezes (More)
