Science Quizzes

It's time to break out your lab coat, periodic table and a set of beakers and dive into the science games at Sporcle. You can try your hand at naming all of the elements in a periodic table game, or put yourself to the test with timed math games. No matter which science trivia game you choose, you won't have to cut open a frog or create a scale model of an atom (unless you want to). If you're looking for a new way to study for a science quiz, try our planets game to remember all eight of them, or see how many digits of pi you can remember. Either way you'll be prepared for any unplanned trips into outer space at a moment's notice.

    What about a sperm whale that has been dropped from the orbit of a large planet?

    @tvfan3, The IAU classification is in no way non-sensical. It sets a number of requirements, and pluto doesn't fulfill many of them. Pluto was added as a planet before we knew much about it, and the more we knew, the less it made sense to have it on that list. Originally Ceres, Vespa, Juno, and Pallas were all planets until the astronomers realized that they were all in the asteroid belt, and more like each-other than like the other planets. The same process occurred with pluto, but in the Kuiper belt. Eventually, they discovered Eris, a dwarf planet that was larger than Pluto in the Kuiper belt, and they decided that Pluto really wasn't fit to be a planet. No one argues to have Eris as a planet, only Pluto, because people in this generation have some sort of weird fascination with the runt, the underdog, and nostalgia. I'm sorry, but Pluto isn't a planet.

    It's okay, Pluto. In my heart, you'll always be a planet.

    I'm gonna give people the benefit of the doubt and assume the reason 1 isn't the most guessed answer is because it came later and you guys ran out of time.
  8. Planets by Size

    @Grossn: You don't have to answer in order, so a small number of people must have skipped ahead to smallest because that was an obvious one. Mars/Venus seems like the toughest call here if you don't know for sure, that's where I went wrong.
  9. Fastest Animals

    Answering my own question, the source says they only listed the top few birds because otherwise they'd dominate the list.
  10. Planets by Size

    I would have said Earth/Venus is a tougher call than Venus/Mars... Earth and Venus are basically the same size and Mars is a decent bit smaller.
