  • 1. Chapter One Matter and Life Chem100: General & Consumer Chemistry Natural Sciences Department College of Science & Information Technology
  • 2. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 2 1.1 Chemistry: The Central Science Chemistry is often referred to as “The Central Science” because it is crucial to all other sciences. Chapter One
  • 3. The Study of Change NSD - CSIT, ADZU Chapter One 3
  • 4. Present Definition It is the study of matter – its composition, structure, properties, the changes its undergoes and the energy that accompanies the changes. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 4Chapter One
  • 5. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 5 u  Matter: Anything that has mass and occupies space – things you can see, touch, taste, or smell. u  Property: a characteristic that can be used to describe a substance. Size, color, temperature are most familiar properties of matter. Less familiar properties include: Chemical composition: what matter is made of. Chemical Reactivity: how matter behaves. Chapter One
  • 6. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 6 u  Physical Change: Does not alter the chemical makeup of a substance. Change is reversible. Melting of solid ice is a physical change. In this case only change in form takes place and the change is reversible. u  Chemical Change: Alters chemical makeup of a substance. Change is irreversible. Rusting of iron is a chemical change. Here, iron combines with oxygen and produces a new substance rust. u  Nuclear Change: Yields new element(s) not present before the reaction. Chapter One
  • 7. 4Fe(s) + 3O2(g) ⎯→ 2Fe2O3 (s) 2H(g) + 2H (g) ⎯→ 4He↑ NSD - CSIT, ADZU Chapter One 7
  • 8. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 8 1.2 States of Matter Matter exist in three forms: solid, liquid, and gas. Solid: A substance that has a definite shape and volume. Liquid: A substance that has a definite volume but that changes shape to fill the container. Gas: A substance that has neither a definite volume nor a definite shape. Many substances, such as water, can exist in all three states depending on the temperature. The conversion of a substance from one state into another is known as change of state. Chapter One
  • 9. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 9Chapter Onez
  • 10. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 10 The three states - the solid state, the liquid state, and the gaseous state - of water are shown in Figure 1.3 below. Chapter One
  • 11. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 11Chapter One
  • 12. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 12 1.3 Classification of Matter u  Pure Substance: Uniform in its chemical composition and properties. Sugar and water are pure substances. u  Mixture: Composition and properties may vary. Different amounts of sugar dissolved in water will determine sweetness of water. Sugar water is an example of a mixture. Chapter One
  • 13. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 13 u  Chemical Compounds: Substance that can be broken down into simpler substances. Water is a chemical compound since it can be broken down into hydrogen and oxygen by passing electric current through it. u  Element: Substance that can not be broken down chemically into simpler substances. Hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen are example of elements. Chapter One
  • 14. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 14 The classification of matter is summarized in Fig 1.4 below. Chapter One
  • 15. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 15 1.4 An Example of a Chemical Reaction When the element nickel, a solid metal, is mixed with a colorless solution of hydrochloric acid in a test tube, the nickel is slowly eaten away, the colorless solution turns green, and a colorless gas bubbles out of the test tube. Ni(s) + HCl(aq) ⎯→ NiCl2(aq) + H2↑ Chapter One
  • 16. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 16 1.5 Chemical Elements and Symbols 115 Elements are known until today. Only 90 of these elements occur naturally, remaining are produced artificially by chemists and physicist. u  Some familiar elements are iron, tin, carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, sulfur, etc. u  Some unfamiliar elements are niobium, rhodium, thulium, californium etc. Chapter One
  • 17. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 17 Each element has its own unique symbol. –  One or two letter symbols are used to represent elements. –  First letter is always capitalized and the second letter is always a lower case. –  Some symbols came from elements modern name such as ‘H’ for hydrogen, ‘O’ for oxygen, ‘N’ for nitrogen, etc. Chapter One
  • 18. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 18 u  A few symbols for elements are derived from their Latin names. For example, ‘Na’ for sodium came from its Latin name Natrium. u  All naturally occurring elements are not equally abundant. Oxygen and silicon together constitute 75% of the earth’s crust. u  Chemical Formula: A notation for chemical compound using element symbols and subscripts to show how many atoms of each element are present. Chapter One
  • 19. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 19 The formula for water is H2O. H2O indicates that two hydrogen and one oxygen combined together to produce water. When no subscript is given for an element a subscript of ‘1’ is understood. Chapter One
  • 20. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 20 1.6 Elements and the Periodic Table Periodic Table, shown below, is a representation of 113 elements in a tabular format. Chapter One
  • 21. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 21 Large amounts of information regarding the properties of elements is embedded in periodic table. Elements are roughly divided into 3 groups q  Metals q  Nonmetals q  Metalloids Chapter One
  • 22. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 22 Metals, nonmetals, and metalloids appear in distinct places on the periodic table Chapter One
  • 23. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 23 Metals: 89 of the 115 elements are metals. They appear on the left side of the Periodic Table. Some common properties of metals are: q  Solid at room temperature (except mercury which is a liquid) q  Good conductor of heat q  Good conductor of electricity q  Malleable q  Ductile Chapter One
  • 24. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 24 Nonmetals: Appear on the right side of the Periodic Table. 17 elements are nonmetals. Nonmetals are poor conductors of heat and electricity. Out of these 17 nonmetal elements –  Four are gases at room temperature (H, N, O, etc.) –  Five are solids (sulfur) –  One is a liquid (bromine). Chapter One
  • 25. NSD - CSIT, ADZU 25 Metalloids: Appear between metals on the left side and nonmetals on the right side on the periodic table. Their properties are between metals and nonmetals. Boron, silicon, arsenic are examples of some of the metalloids. Chapter One
