AS Chemistry ­ Revision Notes
Unit 1 ­ Atomic Structure, Bonding And Periodicity
Atomic Structure
1. All atoms have a mass number, A (the number of nucleons), and a proton number, Z (the number
of protons).
2. Isotopes have different numbers of neutrons, and have different…

d. Insoluble in water.
22. Properties of metallic structure:
a. High melting/boiling point due to strong attraction between electrons and cations.
b. High electrical and thermal conductivity.
c. High density, very strong, ductile and malleable.

5. Electrical conductivity across period 3:
a. This increases from Na to Al, because the number of delocalised electrons able to carry
current increases, thus increasing the ability to conduct electricity.
b. The elements Si to Ar have close to zero electrical conductivity, because they bond…
