what is a ion?
when an atom is negatively charged or positively charged
1 of 43
what attracts and does not attract? (charges)
opposites attract e.g. + + =repel - - =repel + - =attract
2 of 43
what type of charge can move?
electrons are the only charge that can move because they have more energy.
3 of 43
what is the current?
the flowing electrons
4 of 43
what is voltage?
the force moving the electrons around the circuit.
5 of 43
what does an ammeater do?
an ammeter shows us what the speed of the current is. the current is measured n amps
6 of 43
what is OHMS law?
OHMS law is the triangle with voltage at the top and current on the bottom left with resistance next to it.

what is an electromagnet?
it is a bit of metal such as an iron nail and wrap wire round. the electric will make the metal magnetic.
8 of 43
how can you make the magnet stronger?
by putting more coils around the bit of metal.
9 of 43
what is a hydrocarbon?
a fuel made from only carbon and hydrogen atoms. such as methane.
10 of 43
how can you increase the gas pressure in a space?
by burning or making the space smaller.
11 of 43
when does displacement happen?
it happens when a oxidised element that is less reactive than a other element and the more reactive one steals the oxide from it.
12 of 43
two ways you can prevent rusting?
physical barrier where you use paint. or using a sacrificial block to attract the oxygen.
13 of 43
how do things rust?
things rust over a long period of time when iron is in contact with oxygen
14 of 43
what speeds up the process of rusting?
water and salt
15 of 43
what is a catalyst?
something that speed up a process.
16 of 43
what is electrolysis used for?
to get element like sodium separated form an ore.
17 of 43
by using negative and positive charges the sodium will be attracted to one of the two and the rock it is in will be attracted to the other
18 of 43
sodium is very attractive meaning and reacts with things easily and the element above it are already reacted so you cannot use them.
19 of 43
what is an ore?
a rock that contains enough metal to make it economical worthwhile to extract the elements apart.
20 of 43
very reactive elements?
potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium.
21 of 43
not very reactive elements?
copper, silver and gold
22 of 43
what are in the middle of reactivity?
23 of 43
what is reduction?
it is when you use carbon to take away the oxygen
24 of 43
name some natural elements? (you don't have to use electrolysis or reduction)
gold and silver
25 of 43
when burning you react with???
26 of 43
potatoes are what?
the starch storage organs of a plant
27 of 43
weeds are???
unwanted plants
28 of 43
what is an electrolyte?
a liquid that contains ions so that electricity can go though it during electrolysis
29 of 43
what is an anode?
a positivity charged electrode
30 of 43
what is a cathode
a negativity charged electrode
31 of 43
what is an electrolictic cell?
the devise used in electrolysis
32 of 43
what is the battery connected to?
an electrode
33 of 43
cathode =
reduction = gain of electrons
34 of 43
anode =
oxidation = loss of electrons
35 of 43
how does co2 get in plant and how does oxygen get out?
through the stomata
36 of 43
what does chlorophyll attract?
the photons from the sun
37 of 43
what is the chlorophyll kept in?
38 of 43
what is electricity?
the movement of electrons
39 of 43
what is an ionic substance?
when a non-metal reacts with a metal contains ions.
40 of 43
what are the three magnetic metals?
nickel, iron and Colbert.
41 of 43
what are watts?
the power of a magnet
42 of 43
the best test for a magnet and why?
reputation because a magnet can attract non magnetic magnets but can not reple against it
