Chemistry


(a) Atoms

All matter is made of tiny particles which constantly move around/vibrate. This
can be proven through the following experiments:
· Coloured solutions diffuse and become diluted
· Gases diffuse (prove by HCL fumes and ammonia forming white ammonium
chloride)…

Relative atomic mass (Ar) ­ is the average mass number of all the isotopes of an
element, weighted by the percentage, or relative abundance, of its isotope.

(a) The Periodic Table
Periodic Table ­ elements are arranged in order of atomic number
Periods: the rows on the table. Elements going across a period:

· Increase in number of electrons on…

· More dense
· Lower boiling point
· Softer

Group 7: Halogens ­ seven electrons on outer shell, forms -1 anion when reacted
· Low boiling/melting point
· Exists as diatomic molecules
· Brittle when solid
· Non-metal
· Poor conductor of heat/electricity
· Coloured fumes
· Iodine used as…

Group 0: Noble Gases
· Full outer shell
· Inert gases (very un-reactive)
· Single atom gases
· Low melting point
· Low density
· Colourless



Trends in reactivity (as you go down the group):
· Higher density
· Higher boiling/melting point

Helium Less dense than air, helium ballons

· Redox reaction ­ more reactive metal takes the oxygen from the less reactive
metal
· Displacement reaction (of aqueous solutions)

recall the reactions with oxygen, water and dilute acids used to establish reactivity

· They are "saturated" means that they only have single covalent bonds, so no
more atoms can be added

Homologous Series: a family of compounds which have similar structure and chemical
properties. A family of compounds can be represented by a general formula. Members
of the same homologous series may…
