What is the Mass number?
The mass number is the total number of protons and neutrons
1 of 32
What is the Atomic number?
The atomic number is the number of protons
2 of 32
How do you get the number of neutrons?
Take away the atomic number from the mass number
3 of 32
What are compounds?
Two or more elements chemically joined together
4 of 32
Why is carbon dioxide a compound?
Because it is made from a chemical reaction of oxygen and carbon
5 of 32
What are Isotopes?
Isotopes are atoms of the same element. they have the same number of Protons but a different number of Neutrons
6 of 32
What is Ionic Bonding?
When atoms lose or gain electrons to form ions
7 of 32
What kind of charge can Ions have?
Positive or Negative
8 of 32
Why do atoms with just one or two electrons on their out shell or nearly full outer shells want to lose or gain them?
To have a full outer shell
9 of 32
What kind of structure do Ionic Compounds have?
They have a giant ionic lattice structure
10 of 32
Give three properties of Ionic Compounds
*Can dissolve easily in water, *They all have high melting and high boiling points, *When they melt, the ions are free to move - This means they'll carry electric current
11 of 32
What charges are atoms that have lost an electron and gained an electron
*Lost + positive charge, *Gained = negative charge
12 of 32
How can atoms make Covalent bonds?
By sharing electrons with other aoms
13 of 32
Covalent bonds between atoms are very strong. TRUE / FALSE
14 of 32
Give 3 points about Simple Molecular Substances.
*most are gases or liquids at room temp. They can be solids though, *Have low melting and boiling points, *Don't conduct electricity- No ions = no electrical charge
15 of 32
Ggive three points about giant covalent structures
*All atoms are joined to each other by strong covalent bonds, *Have high melting points and very high boiling points, *Don't conduct electricity - except graphite
16 of 32
Describe Diamond.
Each carbon atom forms 4 covalent bonds held tightly in giant covalent structure. Its very hard
17 of 32
Describe Graphite.
*Each carbon ato forms 3 covalent bonds, *This creates layers which are free to slide over each other, *makes graphite soft and slippery
18 of 32
Describe Silicon Dioxide - Silica
Giant structure of silicon and oxygen
19 of 32
Why are Alloys harder than Pure Metals?
2 or more different metals are mixed together to make an Alloy. Differ net metals + different sized atoms. So when one metal is mixed with another, nice neat layers mess up. This makes it harder for them to slide over each other.
20 of 32
Metals are Regular structures. What properties do they have?
They have giant structures, the atoms in metals are arranged in regular pattern, Layers of atoms can slide over each other - this mean metals can be bent or shaped
21 of 32
What are Nanoparticles?
Really tiny particles
22 of 32
What are 2 uses of Nano Particles?
*New catalysts, *Sensore that can detect one type of molecule and nothing else, *Stronger and Lighter building materials, *Tiny electric circuits for computer chips
23 of 32
What is a Thermosoftening Polymer?
TP's are made up of lots of tangled chains of Polymers, they can slide over each other, AND very easy to melt
24 of 32
What is a Thermosetting Polymer?
TP'S have crosslinks between chains of polymers - these hold the chains together in a solid structure, This means polymer doesn't melt when heated
25 of 32
What do properties of Polymers depend on?
Using different catalystd and different reaction conditions
26 of 32
What are the 2 types of Polythene?
Low density and high density Polythene
27 of 32
What are the 2 types of Polymers?
Thermosetting and Thermosoftening
28 of 32
What is the relative formula mass of MGCl(small 2) - Mg =24, Cl=35.5
24+(35.5x2) = 24 + 71 = 95
29 of 32
What is the equation to find the percentage mass of an element in a compound?
the mass no.of the element multiplied by if there is a smaller number next to it, divided by the relative formula mass multiplied by a hundred
30 of 32
What is a yield?
The amount of product you get from a reaction
31 of 32
Machines can identify substances using machines. What is an advantage of this?
*Very sensitive, *Very fast, *Very accurate
