of parts Substances burn because of a reaction with the oxygen in the air If the oxygen were to run out then the burning would stop For multiplication and division your answer should have as many significant figures as the measurement with the least amount of sig figs A chemical property is the list of chemical changes that are possible for a substance The law of the conservation of mass states that the mass of the reactants in a chemical change is equal to the mass of the products Avogadro s hypothesis states that equal volumes of gasses have an equal number of molecules The three subatomic particles are proton 1 p or p Neutron 0 n or no and electron1 e39 The two types of ions are a cation which is positive and the anion with is negative You can change a proportionality to an equality by adding a proportionality constant k The three ways to express a ratio are in a decimal form fraction or a percent A hypothesis is a prediction about the natural world that is supported by a pattern A hypothesis is never true it is only considered to be not false It requires many tests to modify a hypothesis to make it slightly less false each time The rules for significant figures for addition and subtraction is that in you answer you only have as many places after the decimal as there are in the measured quantity with the least amount of decimal places A homogeneous mixture is uniform in appearance and uniform in composition throughout the substance The law of definite proportions states that the percent by mass of the elements that make up a compound are definite fixed and invariant The law of combining volumes states that volume ratios in which gasses react are always a ratio of small whole numbers An isotope is an atom of the same element that has a different number of neutrons and different masses Xeon Radon Hydrogen Gold Force and acceleration are directly proportional F oc a Ppm and ppb should be used when you have a number or an answer that is extremely small You can multiply the answer by either a million ppm or a billion ppb to make the number more easily worked with Boyle s law states that as the volume decreases the pressure increases and as the volume increases the pressure decreases as long as it remains at a constant temperature P oc 1V I PkN so kVP a436g b106 cm3 c52600mL d462 lbs Study Guide for 924 midterm Chem 141 Prof Cracolice 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 It is a heterogeneous mixture because even though both ice and water are both types of water they are in two different phases and thus not uniform in composition throughout The law of multiple proportions states when two substances can react to form more than one product the amounts of one that completely reacts with a xed amount of the other is in a ratio of small whole n u m be rs The Gold Foil Experiment showed that atoms were mostly made up of empty space and that most of the mass and matter were only a small fraction of the entire atom A The Atomic

Dalton came up with the atomic theory to combine the three previous laws about atoms the law of conservation of mass law of definite proportions and the law of multiple proportions Dalton s atomic theory was disproven by J J Thompson During his experiment using a cathode ray tube he discovered that atoms could be divisible He thought that the charges of negative electricity that he detected had to be carried by smaller particles than the atom thus theorizing the presence of the electron the first subatomic particle 23 41 73 105 The five most important acids are sulfuric acid phosphoric acid
