Chapter 2 Dalton s Atomic Theory of Matter Origins of the Universe Atoms 0 People 0 Democritus first proposed that elements are composed of tiny indivisible particles 0 Robert Boyle studied behavior of gases he was credited with having the first clear evidence for atomic makeup of matter 0 At smallest particle into which an element can be divided and still exhibit properties of the element Law of Conservation of Mass 0 People 0 Priestly prepared and isolated 02 gas by heating mercuric oxide 0 Lavoisier showed that oxygen is a key substance involved in combustion 0 States that mass cannot be created nor destroyed Dalton s Atomic Theory 0 John Dalton proposed new theory of matter 0 Elements are made of tiny particles called atoms 0 Each element is characterized by the mass of its atoms I Atoms of the same element have the same mass but atoms of different elements have different masses 0 Chemical combinations of elements make different substances when atoms join together in whole number ratios 0 Chemical reactions only rearrange the way atoms are combined the atoms themselves are not changed Law of Multiple Proportion 0 Elements can combine in different ways to form different substances whose mass ratios are small whole number ratios of each other 0 This is implied by Dalton s atomic theory 0 Suggests that it may be possible for same elements to combine in different ratios to give different substances I Eg CO vs C02 NO vs N02 Charge and Mass of Electron 0 People 0 Thomson s Experiment I De ection of electron beam must depend on 0 Strength of de ecting magnet 0 Size of negative charge on particle 0 Mass of electron O Charge to mass ratio em 1758820 108 Cg O RA Millikan I Oil drop experiments 0 Oil drops of a known mass were given a negative charge by irradiation and suspended between charged plates 0 e 1602 103919 C m 9109 103928 g Structure of Atoms Protons and Neutrons 0 People 0 Rutherford I Experimented with alpha particles emitted from radioactive elements 0 Mass of alpha particle 7000X the mass of e39 0 Charge of alpha particle positive 2X larger than chage of e39 0 Directed beam of alpha particles onto gold foil 0 Almost passed straight through the foil small percentage l20000 was de ected at an angle I Conclusions 0 Atom must be almost entirely empty space 0 Mass of atom is concentrated in tiny core called the nucleus 0 Nucleus contains two types of particles protons p and neutrons n 0 Nucleus contains atom s mass and positive charge electrons move in space relatively large distance away from the nucleus 0 The presence of negative particles in atoms e39 requires there to also be positive particles 0 Modern measurements 0 Mass of a proton 1670622 103924 g 0 Mass of a neutron 1674927 103924 g Atomic Number 0 Elements differ from one another according to the number of protons in their atoms called atomic number Z 0 All atoms of the same element have the same number of protons in the nucleus 0 The sum of protons and neutrons in the nucleus is called the mass number A Atoms vs Isotopes 0 All atoms of a given element have the same number of protons O For neutral atoms the number of protons and electrons are equal 0 NOT all atoms of a given element have the same mass number 0 Isotopes atoms of the same element that have different mass numbers 0 This means they have the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons I Hydrogen 1p O n Mass numberl I Tritium 1p 2n Mass number 3 0 Representation of isotopes O Elemental Symbol 0 Mass Number A left handed superscript 0 Atomic Number Z left handed subscript I Eg 11H 21H 31H I 126C carbon 12 6 protons 6 neutrons I 136C carbon 13 6 protons 7 neutrons 0 The chemical properties of an element depend on the number of electrons and protons in the atom NOT the number of neutrons o AZX I X is the Atomic symbol of the element I A mass number I A ZN I N number of neutrons Atomic Mass 0 Mass of an atom 103924 g 0 Atomic mass unit amu mass of 12C atom 12 1660539 103924g 0 Mass of an atom in amu is called the Isotopic Mass and is numerically close to the atom s mass number mass of e39 are negligible compared to protons and neutrons 0 Elements atomic mass is a weighted average of the isotopic masses of the element s naturally occurring isotopes O C fraction 12Cmass 12Cfraction 13Cmass 13C O O988912 amu 00111130034 amu 12011 amu Compounds and Mixtures 0 Most matter does not occur as a pure element but as a combination of elements 0 Compounds pure substance formed when atoms of two or more different elements combine e g H20 I Chemical reactions process by which elements or compounds are transformed to new substances I Chemical formula notation which lists symbols for the elements in a compound and indicates the number of atoms of each element eg H20 NaCL CH3COOH O Mixtures blends of two or more substances I Heterogeneous non uniform vs Homogeneous uniform Matter I Pure M39Xtures I I Substances Heterogeneo Homogeneo Chemical us us Elements Compounds Molecules Ions and Chemical Bonds 0 Chemical Bonds 0 Connections formed between atoms using electrons I Atoms combine together to form compounds 0 Covalent bonds sharing of electrons between two nonmetal atoms 0 Ionic bonds transfer of electron from metal atom to non metal atom to form ions 0 Metallic bonds loose sea of electrons around lattice of metal ions Covalent Bonds 0 Sharing of two electrons between two nonmetal atoms 0 Can be the same element E g N2 H2 02 0 Covalent bonding between atoms forms molecules or molecular compounds represented by different models O Ball and Stick shows bonds between atoms 0 Space filling portray overall molecular shape 0 Chemical and structural formulas show of atoms of each element and connections between atoms in a compound respectively Ionic Bonds 0 Formed by transfer of electrons from metal atom to non metal atom to form ions charged particles 0 Cations positively charged particles formed by loss of electrons I cat ions thing paw sitive O Anions negatively charged particles formed by gaining electrons I Oppositely charged particles are held together by electrostatic attractions ionic solids 0 Mg C12 Mg2 2Cl39 MgClz ionic compound 0 Polyatomic ions NH4 OH N05 804239 Acids and Bases I Fundamental concepts to classify chemical behavior of many substances 0 Acid a substance that provides H ions protons when dissolved in water I E g HCL HNO3 H2804 H3PO4 HCl 8 D H 6161 C139 6161 0 Base a substance that provides OH39 ions in water I Eg NaOH KOH BaOH2 I BaOH2 s I Ba2 aq 2 OH39 aq Naming Chemical Compounds 0 Each compound should have a unique name that allows chemists to understand the chemical structure 0 Binary Ionic Compounds 0 Identify Cation first given as the name of the element I For metals With more than one charge use Roman numerals to indicate charge 0 Fe2 iron 11 or ferrous ion Fe3 iron III or ferric ion 0 Identify anion add ide suffix to name of the element 0 Binary Molecular Compounds Covalent 0 Atom further to the left in periodic table is more cation like name this first as the name of the element 0 More anion like element is named last Add ide 0 Add numerical prefixes to specify of each kind of atom I HF hydrogen uoride C02 carbon dioxide I N203 dinitrogen trioxide I P406 tetraphosphorus hexoxide 0 Compounds with Polyatomic Ions 0 Follow rules for the binary ionic compounds cation anion 0 NamesSuffixes for polyatomic ions I ide for simple diatomic anions CH CN 02239 I Oxoanions atom of a given element combined With varying numbers of oxygen atoms ite vs ate 0 803239 sulfite vs 804239
