A material with molecules, atoms or ions lined up in a regular way as in a crystal.
7 of 38
An ionic compound formed when a metal reacts with a non-metal
8 of 38
A description of the way a property increases of decreases along a series of elements or compounds, which is often applied to the elements in a group or period.

A group of atoms joined together.
13 of 38
Chemical Equation
A summary of a chemical reaction showing the reactants and products with their physical states.
14 of 38
A way of describing a chemical that uses symbols for atoms. A formula gives information about the numbers of different atoms in the chemical.
15 of 38
Balance Edquation

Displacement Reactions
When a more reactive halogen will displace a less reactive halogen.
22 of 38
A chemical that may cause damage to health if swallowed breathed or absorbed through the skin.

Flame Colour
A colour produced when a chemical is held in a flame. Some elements and their compounds give characteristic colours.
24 of 38
Line Specturm
A spectrum made up of a series of lines when the light from a flame test is split into different colours using a prism.
25 of 38
The use of instruments to produce spectra. The spectra are analysed to study elements/compounds.
26 of 38
The central part of an atom where the protons and neutrons are found. The mass of an atom is concentrated in its nucleus.
27 of 38
The particle present in the nuclei of atoms. Protons are positively charged.
28 of 38
An uncharged particle found in the nucleus of atoms.

Sub-atomic particles
The particles that make up atoms – protons, neutrons and electrons.
32 of 38
Energy Level
The electrons in an atom have different energies and are arranged at distinct energy levels.
33 of 38
A region in space around the nucleus of an atom where there can be electrons.
34 of 38
Electron Arrangement
The number and arrangement of electrons in an atom of an element
