  • chalk = calcium carbonite (CaCH3) ammonia = NH3
  • Like the days of the month, the chemical elements can be arranged in a way that shows a repeating, or PERIODIC pattern. DRY ERASE EXERCISE Patterns: atomic # increases as you move left to right Groups share same # of valence electron Energy levels increase as you move down a group
  • luster is a measure of shinyness
  • Common uses: Sodium chloride is table salt, lithium in batteries, Cesium in clocks, potassium in fireworks, liquid detergents, fertilizers and vitamins, rubidium in photocells (motion detectors) Pure sodium in water = flames
  • Common uses: Beryllium in high-speed aircraft, missiles, spacecraft & satellites, Magnesium combined with other metals to form strong but lightweight alloys. Calcium in limestone & marble, essential for strong teeth & bones, Strontium gives fireworks their red color, barium in ceramics and some types of glass (and GI x-rays). Radium is radioactive (too many protons or too few neutrons causes unstable atom where particles are released) and used in cancer chemotherapy.
  • Elements with atomic number greater than 92 are manufactured in laboratories and are highly unstable (radioactive)
  • Common uses: Boron makes boric acid (mild antiseptic), borax (laundry water softener & ant killer) and a small component of silly putty - produces green flame when burned Aluminum (most abundant metal in Earth's crust) is soft and light - found in baseball bats, drink cans, bikes & cooking utensils. Gallium is solid at room temp but melts in your hand - used in electronic devices Indium also has a low melting point - used in alloys in thermometers and flat-screen TV's Thallium is poisonous - not many uses, but sometimes mixed with other compounds to form types of glass.

  • The Eagle Nebula. ( External Sample ) By weight, 75 percent of the visible universe is hydrogen. Ordinarily it is a colorless gas, but vast quantities of it in space absorb starlight, creating spectacular sights such as the Eagle Nebula (seen by the Hubble Space telescope). Found in: water, sugar, ammonia, rocket fuel, stars & nebulae, and air

    • What does the atomic number tell you?
      • # of protons (& electrons)
    • What does the atomic mass tell you?
      • weight of protons & neutrons combined
      • allows you to calculate the # of neutrons
    • What are atomic symbols used for?
      • abbreviations allow easier written chemical formulas
        • H 2 O 2 , CO 2 , C 6 H 12 O 6
    • Which subatomic particles are found in the nucleus of an atom?
      • protons & neutrons
  • 3.
    • Columns (called groups ) have similar chemical & physical properties
      • share similar arrangement of electrons
      • same # of valence electrons (electrons in outermost shell)
    • Rows (called periods ) highlight the repeating nature of elements
      • displayed in order of increasing atomic number (no other similarities)
      • atomic radius decreases as you move left to right
      • ionization energy increases left to right
    Periodic Table of the Elements - What patterns do you see?
  • 4. Reactivity - What makes atoms interact?
    • Atoms are happiest (most stable):
      • with full energy levels (filled electron shells)
      • with paired electrons
    • Atoms will interact with other atoms to make electron pairs and filled shells happen
  • 5. Drawing Chemical Reactions - Two ways to draw an atom
    • Bohr Models show ALL electrons orbiting an atom
      • But only valence electrons (those in the outermost shell) are involved in chemical reactions
    • Lewis Dot Structures display ONLY the valence electrons
    Lewis Structure Bohr Model
  • 6. Periodic Table of Elements - Lewis Dot Structures
  • 7. Reactivity - Covalent Bonds
    • Sometimes valence electrons are shared
      • They spend part of their time orbiting each atom
      • These shared electrons help hold the molecule together
    • Electrons are shared by the compound's individual atoms:
    O Water H H
  • 8. Bonding - Ionic Bonds
    • Sometimes electrons are donated (and received)
      • in this case, ions are formed (charged particles)
      • the opposite charges of the atoms bind them together
    • Electrons donated/received by individual atoms:
      • IONIC BOND
