Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Long hair must be secured to the back of your head.

Answer: True

You need to secure your hair to the back of your head to prevent it from getting in the way. If you have loose hair while using a Bunsen burner, it may get burned. Always follow that rule.
2. What things do you need to wear before beginning any laboratory exercise?

Answer: All of these

You should always wear goggles, safety aprons (or a lab coat), and gloves before beginning any laboratory exercise. Follow this rule to prevent getting chemicals into your eyes and on your clothes and hands. After finishing in the lab, always wash your hands with soap.
3. What should you do if a glass breakage occurs?

Answer: Immediately contact your teacher.

If you accidentally break some glass, do not touch it because it may contain dangerous substances that may affect your skin or be poisonous. Contact your teacher immediately so it can be cleaned up as quickly as possible and not create a hazard for anyone else.
4. What should you maintain in your lab work area?

Answer: A clean and tidy work space.

You should always maintain a clean work area because it helps you keep track of what you are doing. Be aware of what chemicals you are using and what you need to use them for. Never eat or drink in the laboratory!

7. If you are going to heat a liquid, what should you NEVER do?

Answer: Heat the liquid in a closed container.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER heat a closed container because the expanding gases produced may blow the container apart, injuring you and/or others. Heating a liquid in an open container means the gases produced can escape safely.
8. What should you NEVER do if you have heated a container?

Answer: Pick up the container with your hand(s).

If you can feel the heat on the back of your hand when you hold it near the container, it is too hot to handle. Use a clamp or tongs when handling hot containers. If you are unsure of whether a container is hot, pick it up with tongs or a clamp anyway, just to be safe.
9. Never heat a chemical unless instructed to do so.

Answer: True

Some chemicals are so strong that if you heat them, they may explode. A chemical that is harmless when cool can be dangerous when heated. Always listen to what your teacher tells you.
10. What should you NEVER do in the lab?

Answer: All of these.

Never play in the lab. If you run or play soccer or whatever, you may break a beaker that may contain dangerous chemicals. Always remain at your lab station and do not interfere with other students' work.
