Math HESI A2 Practice Test
1. How many ounces are in 3 quarts?
- A. 64 ounces
- B. 32 ounces
- C. 48 ounces
- D. 96 ounces
Correct answer: D
Rationale: There are 32 ounces in a quart. Therefore, 3 quarts would be equal to 3 quarts x 32 ounces = 96 ounces. The correct answer is D. Choice A, 64 ounces, is incorrect as it miscalculates the conversion from quarts to ounces. Choice B, 32 ounces, is the conversion for 1 quart, not 3 quarts. Choice C, 48 ounces, is also an incorrect calculation, not considering the correct conversion rate.
2. If a 5-kg ball is moving at 5 m/s, what is its momentum?
- A. 10 kg⋅m/s
- B. 16.2 km/h
- C. 24.75 kg⋅m/s
- D. 25 kg⋅m/s
Correct answer: D
Rationale: The momentum of an object is calculated by multiplying its mass by its velocity. In this case, the mass of the ball is 5 kg and its velocity is 5 m/s. Therefore, the momentum of the ball is 5 kg × 5 m/s = 25 kg⋅m/s. Choice A (10 kg⋅m/s) is incorrect as it does not account for both mass and velocity. Choice B (16.2 km/h) is incorrect as it provides a speed in a different unit without considering mass. Choice C (24.75 kg⋅m/s) is incorrect as it does not correctly calculate the momentum based on the given mass and velocity.
3. A salt solution has a molarity of 5 M. How many moles of this salt are present in 0 L of this solution?
- A. 0
- B. 1.5
- C. 2
- D. 3
Correct answer: A
Rationale: Molarity is defined as the number of moles of solute per liter of solution. A molarity of 5 M indicates there are 5 moles of salt in 1 liter of the solution. Since the volume of the solution is 0 liters, multiplying the molarity by 0 liters results in 0 moles of salt (5 moles/L x 0 L = 0 moles). Therefore, the correct answer is 0. Option B, 1.5, is incorrect because it doesn't consider the volume being 0 liters. Options C and D, 2 and 3 respectively, are also incorrect as they do not account for the zero volume of the solution. Hence, there are no moles of salt present in 0 liters of the solution.
4. What is the CORRECT CONTRACTION for 'They are'?
- A. Their
- B. They're
- C. The're
- D. No contraction used
Correct answer: B
Rationale: The correct contraction for 'They are' is 'They're.' 'Their' is a possessive pronoun indicating ownership, not a contraction. 'The're' is not a valid contraction. 'No contraction used' is incorrect as there is a contraction for 'They are,' which is 'They're.'
5. How many centimeters are in 6 meters?
- A. 600 cm
- B. 60 cm
- C. 1000 cm
- D. 500 cm
Correct answer: A
Rationale: To convert meters to centimeters, you need to multiply the number of meters by 100 since there are 100 centimeters in 1 meter. Therefore, 6 meters is equal to 6 * 100 = 600 cm. Choice A is correct. Choice B (60 cm) is incorrect because it represents the conversion of 0.6 meters to centimeters. Choice C (1000 cm) is incorrect because it represents the conversion of 10 meters to centimeters. Choice D (500 cm) is incorrect because it is halfway between the conversions of 5 meters (500 cm) and 6 meters (600 cm).
