Chemistry 111 Lecture 1 SI Base Units (can see on pg. 2 Table 1.2 of review packet) Physical Quantity Unit Name Unit Abbreviation Mass kilogram kg Length meter m Time second s Temperature kelvin K Electric current ampere A Amount of substance mole mol Luminous intensity candela cd The structure of a neutral atom is mainly just empty space with a nucleus of a positive - - charge and negative electrons (e ) surrounding the nucleus in the e cloud Compared to the entirety of the atom, the nucleus is extremely tiny Isotopes Every and all atoms of a specific element will always have the same number of protons (p ) o The number of protons determines the atomic number Isotopes are atoms of an element that have the same number of p but a different number of neutrons (n ) + 0 o To find the mass number you add together the amounts of p and n in an atom + 0 A (p + n ) X Z: X=Atomic Symbol, A=Mass Number, Z=Atomic Number Ion Structure If e are removed from an atom that is neutral, it becomes a positive ion, also known as a cation If e are added to a neutral atom, it becomes a negative ion, also known as an anion Atoms and Molecules Molecules are formed from combinations of atoms o “an independent structure of two or more atoms bound together” (see pg. 42 of textbook) Law of Multiple Proportions: “a mass law stating that if elements A and B react to form two or more compounds, the different masses of B that combine with a fixed mass of A can be expressed as a ratio of small whole numbers” (see pg. 46 of textbook) *In order to have a properly balanced equation, you must have the same number and types of atoms in both the reactants as well as the products*
