[Selections From the Exploration Journal for Planet X]

[DAY 1]
Our mission of scientific discovery continues, and there is something
exciting to report. We may have finally found a planet capable of
supporting life. The nearby planets were either too hot or too dry to
support life, but this planet seems to be different. Its surface is mostly
a blue liquid, though it is spotted with some green and brown parts, and
some kind of white substance seems to be moving around the planet.

[DAY 4]
Now we are orbiting the planet. It seems that our assumption was correct!
There are a few mechanical devices circling around it and their designs are
rather complex. They were certainly made by some kind of intelligent
beings. Are these machines part of a monitoring system? Have they signaled
our approach? There doesn't seem to be any threat, so we have decided to
ignore them and get closer to the planet. I hope that their inventors are
friendly.

[DAY 8]
Unlike our planet, which is totally covered with the precious liquid that
sustains us, the green and brown parts of this planet are too dry to
support life. The blue part is mostly H2O in a liquid state. Although it is
liquid, it is not quite the same as the liquid on our home planet. Still,
we might be able to find life here. At least, according to our equipment,
there seems to be something alive down there. We are ready to start direct
observation and will soon dive in. I'm so excited that I won't be able to
sleep tonight!

[DAY 9]
We succeeded in entering this unexplored liquid safely. The scenery
around us was very similar to that of our planet, with soft plants gently
waving back and forth. We also noticed a variety of thin swimming creatures.
How exciting! We have found life on this planet! However, we cannot see any
creatures capable of producing an advanced civilization. Without arms,
these swimming creatures wouldn't be able to build complex machines even if
they were smart. Are the leaders of this planet hiding from us? Do they
have [reservations] about meeting us? Is that why they use those flying
objects to check out space? Hopefully, we will be able to find some answers.

[DAY 12]
We found a big object lying on the bottom. Its long body looked somewhat
like our spaceship. It sat silently looking very old and damaged.
Apparently, it isn't being used anymore. Maybe it is a part of the remains
of this planet's ancient civilization.

[DAY 19]
Since we start our dive, we have seen many more unusual creatures. We
were especially surprised to find one that looked very similar to us. The
upper part of its body was round and soft. Underneath that were two large
eyes and several long arms. It escaped quickly, leaving a cloud of black
substance. We don't know if it is the most intelligent life on this planet,
but our expectations for new discoveries continue to grow.

[DAY 39]
This part of our investigation will soon come to an end. We have found
more remains and abandoned objects like the one we found earlier, but there
have been no signs of the creatures who made them. Perhaps the leaders of
this planet have died out. Anyway, we found life on this planet, which is
a very big discovery. We must leave this planet for now, but we will
certainly come back someday to continue our research. We will return home
with amazing reports.

[DAY 40]
We silently floated up to the surface and then into the air. Just as we
were leaving the planet, we saw a lot of strange creatures on the dry
areas. What a shock! We, creatures living in liquid, had never imagined
creatures like them! Floating safely in our ship's liquid, we realized
that our common sense had led us to the wrong conclusion.

問3 The word [reservations] as used in DAY 9 is closest in meaning to
[ 43 ].

[ 44 ]
{1} A being whose shape resembles an octopus

{3} A space creature which looks like a human
{4} An intelligent flat animal with no arms

高校化学(用語)「塩酸」

高校化学(用語)「塩酸」

★塩酸(hydrochloric acid)

塩化水素(HCl)の水溶液を塩酸という。最も代表的な1価の強酸。


溶質としてのHClのことも「塩酸」と言う場合もあるので、問題で塩酸が登場したときは、文脈をしっかり捉えて、水溶液のことを言っているのか、溶質のことを言っているのか注意する必要があります。


かの有名な洗剤「サンポール」の主成分は塩酸です!



◆関連問題
1.0molのZnと4.0molのHClを含む塩酸とを反応させると、Znが全て溶けた。残ったHClは何molか?
