Atoms & Elements
Atoms are made up of a small nucleus surrounded by electrons.
The Nucleus
· is in the middle of the atom
· contains protons and neutrons
· has almost the whole mass of the atom
· is tiny compared to the whole atom
The Electrons
· move around the nucleus in shells
· are tiny but their path covers a lot of space
· shells explain the whole of chemistry
· consist of only one type of atom
· it is the number of protons in the nucleus
which decide what type of atom it is.…read more

Periodic Table
The periodic table puts elements with similar properties together.
Atoms of each element can be represented by a one or two letter symbol.…read more

Compounds & Mixtures
Compounds are two or more elements chemically bonded together and mixtures are
elements which are not chemically joined.
Compounds Mixtures
· when different elements react, atoms form · there is no chemical bond between the
chemical bonds with each other to form different parts
compounds · the parts can be separated out by
· making bonds involves atoms giving away, physical methods
taking or sharing electrons, so it is usually · the properties of a mixture are just a
difficult to separate the atoms mixture of properties of the separate parts
· the properties of a compound are totally
different from the properties of the original
· compounds can be small molecules like
water or giant lattices like sodium chloride…read more

Balancing Equations
The symbol equation shows the atoms on both sides.
Mg + O2 MgO
· find an element that doesn't balance · balancing the equation
· keep on increasing one side at a time means there must be the
· carry on increasing unbalanced elements same number of atoms on
until they balance out both sides
· you balance the equation
1) Mg + O2 MgO by putting numbers in front
2) Mg + O2 2MgO of the formulas when
3) 2Mg + O2 2MgO needed
· the formula is correct but
the number of some atoms
don't match up
· you can't change the
formula, you can only put
numbers in front of them…read more
