The maximum number of electrons in each shell is: 1st shell : 2 2nd shell: 8 3rd shell: 8
Electron configuration
an element has determines its period
Rows are called periods -Each period represents another full shell of electrons -Number of shells
outer shells -Elements in the same group have…

· NaCl dissolves to form a solution that conducts electricity
form so they can carry a current
· They conduct electricity when molten because the ions are free to move when in molten
· They have high melting and boiling points due to strong chemical bonds
aren't free to move…

Potassium=Lilac flame
Alkali metals burn with colours: Lithium=Red Flame Sodium=Yellow/orange flame
Example of reaction with water: 2Na+ 2H#O ===> 2NaOH + H#

4OH# ====>2H#O + O# + 4e# 2H# + 2e# ====> H# Anode Cathode
Learn these off by heart:
2 water molecules
· At the anode , 4 Hydroxide ions lose their electrons and become 1 oxygen molecule and
· At the cathode , 2 Hydrogen ions accept 2 electrons to…

replaced frequently so it is an expensive process
· Electrolysis uses a lot of electricity,lots of energy is needed and the cathode needs to be
-Decomposition of aluminium oxide= Aluminium oxide =====> Aluminium+Oxygen
(Oxidation) 2O2# ======>O + 4e At the anode:
(Reduction) + 3e# =====> Al At the cathode

Cl# + 2KI ====> I# + 2KCl Cl# + 2KBr ====> Br# + 2KCl

More reactive halogens displace less reactive ones

2Na + 2Cl# ====> 2NaCl 2K + 2Br# ======> 3KBr#

Halogens react with alkali metals to form salts

Definition:A percipitation reaction is where 2 solutions react and an insoluble solid forms in the solid
CuSO# + 2NaOH ===> Cu(OH)# + Na#SO#
Or this can be written as an ionic equation
Cu2 + 2OH ====> Cu(OH)
· Copper Hydroxide is a blue solid
· Iron…
