Exothermic and Endothermic Reaction

  • An exothermic reaction is a reaction where heat is given out 
  • An Endothermic reaction is a reasion which takes in heat

Space Filler Diagram

  • no atoms are created or destroyed just rearranged 
  • new substances are formed

Forming compounds

  • when compounds are formed, elements are chemically joined together
  • the Metal looses electrons and becomes a positive ion
  • the non-metal gains electrons and becomes a negative ion
  • an ion is an atom with a charge

Acid and Metals

acid + metal --> salt + hydrogen

Naming Salts

the first name of the salt is always the name of the metal

the surname of the salt depends on the name of the acid

Testing for hydrogen

Method - put a lit splint into hydrogen gas

Result - if hydrogen is present, you'd hear a squeaky pop

*Making a salt

1. Excess metal is added to the dilute acid, this is to make sure that all the acid is       used up. Then gently heat the mixture to speed up the reaction.

2. Filter the mixture using filter paper and a filter funnel, this is to remove the               unreacted metal. ( filtraction )

3. The solution left is then placed in an evaporating basin and placed by a window at room temperature to evaporate. A crystal is formed in the evaporating basin.

Acid and Alkali

acid + alkali --> salt + water

this is known as neutralisation

acid and metal oxide

metal oxide + acid --> salt + water

12 of 14

acid and metal carbonate

acid + metal carbonate --> salt + water + carbon dioxide

13 of 14

Testing for Carbon Dioxide

method - Gas is passed through lime water

Result - the limewater goes from a colourless solution to a milky colour if carbon dioxide is present
