Mini-Quiz: Definition of Matter

by Ron Kurtus (revised 24 March 2016)

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



1. Is air matter?

No, because it is a gas

People aren't sure, because you can't see it

Yes, because it takes up space and has mass or weight

2. What property of matter causes the Earth's gravity?

The dimension of the Earth causes its gravity

The mass of the Earth causes its force of gravity

The Earth is partially made up of matter

3. Why is the word "antimatter" somewhat misleading?

Antimatter is actually matter with an opposite charge or spin

Because it really does not exist

It really should be called dark matter

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.
