Chem 1030 - Brett Cagg Week 2: 1/25, 1/27 KEY: Vocab. Clicker Question (CQ) Answer to CQs ? = questions asked in class You have a leak in the plumbing of your sink. You measure that it leaks at a rate of 15.0cm^3/min. How many liters of water will be on your floor when you come back from class ? (assume 50.min lecture). A. 0.15L B. 0.75L C. 7.5x10^5L D. 1.5x10^5 2.1 Atoms First • Atom: the smallest quantity of matter that still retains the properties of matter o Can be divided smaller and smaller until its eventually only a single atom remains o Dividing it any smaller would not make it an atom • Element: a substance that cannot be broken down into two or more simpler substances by any means o Oxygen, helium, gold 2.2 Subatomic Particles and Atomic Structure • Radiation: emission and transmission of energy in the form of waves • Cathode ray tube: consists of two metal plates sealed inside a glass tube from which most of the air has been evacuated o Researchers discovered that like charges repel each other, and opposite charges attract one another --> ELECTRONS (-) • Mass of an e = 9.10 x 10 -28g § **Note: the mass of the electron I just gave you is in grams NOT amu. o Particle Mass (g) Mass (amu) Charge ( C ) Charge unit + -24 -19 Proton (p ) 1.67262 x 10 1.0073 + 1.6022 x 10 +1 0 -24 Neutron (n ) 1.67493 x 10 1.0086 0 0 - -28 -4 -19 Electron (e ) 9.10938 x 10 5.4858 x 10 • 1.6022 x 10 -1 • Protons: positively charged particles found around the nucleus • Neutrons: electronically neutral particles found in the nucleus • Electrons: negatively charged particles around the nucleus What are isotopes? How many neutrons are in the Atomic symbol representation written on the board? What element has 5 protons? Boron iCQ: How many neutrons and electrons are in Oxygen -18? • 8 neutrons and 0 electrons • 10 neutrons and 10 electrons • 18 electrons • 10 neutrons 8 electrons 2.3 Atomic Number, Mass Number, and Isotopes • Mass number: total number of protons and neutrons and protons o Mass number = # of protons + # neutrons • Isotopes: atoms that have the same atomic number, but different mass numbers 2.4 Nuclear Stability • The nucleus is a small portion of the total volume of an atom o The nucleus contains most of the atom's mass because protons and neutrons are located there o Stability of the atomic nucleus can be related to density o The highest known element density is 22.6g/ cm3 o The average atomic nucleus is roughly 9x10^12 (or 9 trillion) times as dense as the densest element known 2.5 Average Atomic Mass • Atomic mass: is the mass of an atom in atomic mass units (amu) o 1 amu = 1/12 the mass of a carbon -12 atom o Avg. mass C = (0.9893) (12.00000 amu) + (0.0107) (13.003355 amu) = 12.011 amu • The average atomic mass on the periodic table represents the average mass of the naturally occurring mixture of isotopes 2.6 The Periodic Table • Periodic Table: a chart in which elements having similar chemical and physical properties are grouped together • The PT is organized into horizontal rows = periods and vertical columns = groups • To the left: mostly metals (except Hydrogen); To the right: mostly non -metals • Stair step: separate the metalloi ds (not quite metals… b/w a metal and non -metals since it has properties of both) • Metals are known as good conductors; Non -metals do not conduct heat and electricity • Group 1A: Alkali metals (Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, Fr) as you go up the reaction in water increa ses • Group 2A: Alkaline Earth Metals • Group 6A: Chalcogens (O, S, Se, Te, Po) • Group 7A: Halogens (salt former) (F, Cl, Br, I, At) • Group 8A: Noble Gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe, Rn) • Groups 1B and 3B-8B: Transition elements or transition metals (Groups 4-10 **labeled differently on PTs) iCQ: ID the element that is an alkaline earth metal in the third tow of he PT • Mg • NA • Ca • B 2.7 The Mole and Molar Mass • Mole: defined as the amount of a substance tha t contains as many elementary entities as there are atoms in exactly 12g of carbon -12 • This experimentally determined number is called Avogadro's number (N ) A 23 o N A 6.0221415x10 o Typically rounded to 6.022x10 23 • Why would chemists have the need for suc h a counting number? • Why do we need to have a need for other counting numbers: dozen, gross, ream? • Can we have a mole of anything else besides moles?
