HideShow resource information
element
substance made of only one type of atom
1 of 47
molecule
small particle made from one or more atom bonded together
2 of 47
compound
substance made from 2 or more different elements bonded together
3 of 47
atom
smallest particle of matter
4 of 47
mixture
substance made from 2 or more elements not joined
5 of 47
what is used to seperate sollids from liquids
filteration
6 of 47
distillation
mixture of liquids separated using the differences in boiling point
7 of 47
fractional distillation
liquid being distilled having similar boiling points, providing large surface area for condensation
8 of 47
crystalisation
used to separate mixtures of solid dissolved in liquid
9 of 47
isotopes
have same proton but different neutron
10 of 47
give 2 examples of giant covalent structures
diamond & graphite
11 of 47
giant covalent structure
crystal made of atoms joined with covalent bonds
12 of 47
formation of diamond
made of carbon atoms arranged bonded in a pyramid, with high boiling point
13 of 47
formation of graphite
made of carbon atoms with weak bonds between sheets, sheets can easily separate making graphite lubricant
14 of 47
giant ionic structure
repeated pattern of positive and negative ions
15 of 47
properties of ionic compounds
conducts electricity because ions are free to move towards the positive and negative electrodes.
16 of 47
atoms in a molecule are joined by what
strong covalent bond
17 of 47
what happens in a solid molecule
each neighbour is held close b weak intermolecular forces
18 of 47
what happens when a substance melts
the weak intermolecular forces break, not the strong covalent bonds
19 of 47
what do molecular compounds have
low melting points and evaporate easily due to weak intermolecular forces
20 of 47
covalent bonding
forms between two atoms, shared pair of electrons
21 of 47
ionic bonding
attraction between two oppositely charged ions
22 of 47
alloys
mixture of metals, harder than pure metals layers are distorted
23 of 47
what enables metals to conduct heat and electricty
delocalised electrons in metals
24 of 47
what polymer is soften/melted easily when heated
thermosoftening
25 of 47
what polymer doesn't soften/melt when heated
thermosetting
26 of 47
nanoscience
study of small particles between 1 - 100
27 of 47
relative atomic mass
average value for the isotope of an element
28 of 47
percentage yield
amount of product collected over amount of product poss x 100%
29 of 47
why is it important to maximise yield and minimise energy wasted
to conserve the Earth's limited resources and reduce pollution
30 of 47
why is it not possible to get 100% yield
because reactions may not be complete, other reactions may occur
31 of 47
reversible reactions
products of the reaction can react to make the original
32 of 47
what is chemical analysis used for
identify food additives
33 of 47
what can detect and identify artificial colours
paper chromatography
34 of 47
how does extracting aluminium happen
by electrolysis. 1. aluminium oxide dissolved in molten 2. placed in a large carbon vessel 3. anode made of carbon lowered into electrolyte eg. aluminium gains electrons to make liquid Al3 + 3e- > Al
35 of 47
electrolysis
electricity is used to break down compounds down into their elements.
36 of 47
how does electrolysis of copper sulphate happen
electrlysed using carbon electrodes, producing o2 at anode.
37 of 47
exothermic reaction
gets hotter, temperature increases. E.g. combustion of fuels, displacement reactions
38 of 47
endothermic reaction
gets colder, temp decreases. E.g dissolving of salts, thermal decomposition
39 of 47
catalysts
substances that speed up a reaction without getting used up
40 of 47
increasing what increases the rate of reaction
temperature
41 of 47
increasing the what of a solution increases the rate of reaction
concentration
42 of 47
electrolysis of sodium chloride
electrolysed, chloride gas is produces and hydrogen gas at cathode.
43 of 47
3 reasons why we electroplate
1. make object look more attractive 2. protect metal object from corroding 3. increase hardness
44 of 47
equation for acid mixing with metal
acid + metal > salt + hydrogen
45 of 47
what is sulphuric acid used for in industry
1. steel making 2. paper making
46 of 47
what rocks does calcium carbonate make
1. chalk 2. limestone
