Chemistry 1211: Agarwal Chapter 2 Book Notes 1 Structure of the Atom 1.1Components of the Atom o Elements are characterized by the number and type of particles of which they are composed o Atoms consist of subatomic particles: protons, electrons, neutrons  Proton: carries +1 charge, has a mass of 1.672622E-24 g  Neutron: no electrical charge, has a mass of 1.674927E-24 g  Electron: carries -1 charge, has a mass of 9.109383E-27 g (relatively massless) o Protons, neutrons are found in the nucleus of the atom o Electrons account for most of the volume of an atom o The mass and charge of an atom affect the physical and chemical properties of the element and the compounds it forms  Atomic Mass Unit (u): defined as ½ the mass of a carbon atom that contains 6 protons and 6 neutrons  Ion: an atom with an unequal number of protons and electrons; because they aren’t equal, the atom has an overall positive or negative charge  Cation: more protons than electrons, positively charged  Anion: more electrons than protons, negatively charged 1.2Atomic Number, Mass Number, and Atomic Symbols o Atoms of each element are distinguished by the number of protons in the nucleus  Atomic number (Z): equal to the number of protons; identifying number of the element  Mass number (A): number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atom  Atomic symbol: one or two letter symbol that represents the element along with the atomic number o The number of neutrons is equal to the difference between the mass number and the atomic number 1.3Isotopes & Atomic Weight o All atoms of a specific element have the same number of protons, but some have different numbers of neutrons  Isotopes: atoms that have the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons (same Z, different A) o Isotopes are named using the element name and mass number  Atomic weight: average mass of all naturally occurring isotopes of that element, taking into account relative abundance of the isotope  Percent Abundance: percentage of the atoms of a natural sample of the pure element represented by a particular isotope, to describe isotope composition for an element o What percentage each isotope of an element makes up of the total number of isotopes of the element o To calculate average atomic weight:  ∑ = (mass 1) x (abundance 1) + (mass 2) x (abundance 2) 2 Elements & the Periodic Table 2.1Introduction to the Periodic Table  Alkali Metals (1A): all shiny solids that react vigorously with air, water, and halogens  Alkaline Earth Metals (2A): react with water to form alkaline solutions  Noble Gases (8A): least reactive  Main Group Elements: A groups; representative elements  Transition Metals: B Groups o 1A: Alkali Metals o 2A: Alkaline Earth Metals o 6A: Chalcogens o 7A: Halogens o 8A: Noble Gases o Period 6 = lanthanides o Period 7 = actinides o Left side of table = metals o Right side of table = non-metals o In between = metalloids, semi-metals o Metals: shiny solids that are ductile, good conductors o Non-metals: dull, brittle solids/gases that do not conduct electricity  (Br is only non-metal liquid) o Metalloids: have properties of both non-metals and metals o Many elements exist as molecules consisting of 2 or more atoms of an element o Diatomic Molecules:  H 2  N 2  O 2  F 2  Cl2  Br 2  I2  Allotropes: forms of the same element that differ in their physical and chemical properties 3 Covalent Compounds 3.1Introduction to Covalent Compounds  Covalent Compounds: consist of atoms of different elements held together by covalent bonds  Molecular covalent compounds: each molecule held together by covalent bonds  Network covalent compounds: 3-D network of atoms held together by covalent bonds 3.2Representing Covalent Compounds with Molecular and Empirical Formulas  Molecular formula: way to represent a molecule; contains the symbol for each element and subscript to identify the number of atoms in the molecule o Chemical formulas always show a whole number ratio of elements  Empirical formulas: simplest whole number ratio of elements in the compound o Both molecular covalent and network covalent compounds are represented using empirical formulas  Structural formula: shows the linkage of all atoms in the molecule  Condensed structural formula: lists the atoms present in groups to indicate connectivity between the atoms o CH 3H 2H C2 O2 3.3Representing Covalent Compounds with Molecular Models  Wedge-and-dash model: 2-D representation of a 3-D structure o Key:  Ball-and-Stick model: shows atoms as colored spheres connected by sticks that represent covalent bonds  Space filling model: interpenetrating spheres represent the relative amount of space occupied by each atom in the molecule o Useful for considering the overall shape of molecule, how molecules interact when they come in contact with one another 3.4Naming Covalent Compounds: o Categorized in 2 ways:  Binary Non-Metals  Inorganic Acids o Compounds often belong to more than 1 of the categories o Rules for naming Binary Non-Metals:  First word = name of 1 element in compound  If there is more than 1 atom of the first element, use a prefix  Secord word = name of 2 ndelement with -ide ending  Always use a prefix to indicate number of atoms  CS2= Carbon Disulfide  Hydrocarbons: binary non-metal compounds contain ONLY hydrogen and carbon o Class of organic compounds o Named according to the number of +arbon and Hydrogen atoms  Inorganic Acids: produce Hydrogen Ion (H ) when dissolved in water o Contain Hydrogen and 1 or more non-metals o Hydrogen is ALWAYS 1 element in compound formula o Same rules as binary non-metal compounds WITHOUT prefixes o Also named using common names: MEMORIZE LIST OF COMMON NAMES o Hydrogen Halides (HF, HCl, HBr, HI) are binary non-metals names when they are gases, but use common names when dissolved in water  Oxoacids: group of acids that differ ONLY in number of oxygen atoms o Named according to number of oxygen atoms o -ic ending: acid with more Oxygen atoms o -ous ending: acid with fewer Oxygen atoms 4 Ions & Ionic Compounds 4.1Monoatomic Ions  Ionic Compounds: contain ions; carry positive (cation) charge or negative (anion) charge o Ionic bonds held together by strong attractive forces between cations, anions o Most ionic compounds are solids with high melting points  Covalent compounds tend to be gases, liquids, and solids with low melting points o Neutral atom has equal number of protons and electrons  Monoatomic Ion: when the number of protons and electrons are no longer equal because of gaining/losing electrons o Charge is written with superscript to the right o Cations, anions have physical and chemical properties different from the original element o General Ion Facts:  Groups 1A, 2A, and 3A in periodic table form cations with charge equal to group number  Groups 5A, 6A, and 7A form anions that have negative charge equal to 8minus the group number  Hydrogen forms both cations and anions  Transition metals usually form cations with charges from +1 to +3  Many form multiple monoatomic ions  Group 4A contains metals and non-metals that behave differently  Other than Aluminum, metals in groups 3A, 4A, and 5A form cations with charges that are not predictable o IMPORTANT TO KNOW:  Metals form cations  Non-metals form anions  Noble gases are happy and do not form ions 4.2Polyatomic Ions:  Polyatomic ions: groups of covalently bonded atoms that carry OVERALL positive or negative charge o MEMORIZE common polyatomic ions o Most polyat+mic ions are anions  NH 4 is the only exception o List of common polyatomic ions: + - NH 4 = Ammonium NO =2Nitrite OH = Hydroxide NO =3Nitrate - - CN = Cyanide ClO = Hypochlorite CH 3O = 2cetate ClO =2Chlorite 2- - SO 3 = Sulfite ClO =3Chlorate SO 42-= Sulfate ClO =4Perchlorate HSO = Hydrogen Sulfate (Bisulfate) CO 2-= Carbonate 2- 3 - S 2 3 = Thiosulfate HCO = 3ydrogen Carbonate (Bicarbonate) 3- 2- PO 4 = Phosphate C 2 4 = Oxalate HPO 42-= Hydrogen Phosphate Cr 2 72-= Dichromate - 2- H 2O =4Dihydrogen Phosphate CrO 4 = Chromate SCN = Thiocyanate MnO = 4ermanganate - OCN = Cyanate 4.3Representing Ionic Compounds with Formulas o Ionic compounds represented by empirical formulas: which show the simplest ratio of cations to anions in the compound o Cation written 1 and then anion o Total canionic positive charge balanced with total anionic negative charge  Ionic compounds DO NOT have a charge 4.4Naming Ionic Compounds o Ions and ionic compounds are named by identifying charges on monoatomic and polyatomic ions in the formula o Memorize rules for predicting charges on monoatomic ions o Memorize names, formulas, and charges on polyatomic ions o Rules for naming Ions and Ionic Compounds: Monoatomic Cations:  The name of main-group monoatomic cation is the element name followed by the word ion o Na = sodium ion  The name of transition metal cation is the element name followed by the cation charge in Roman numerals within parentheses and is also followed by the word ion o Fe2+ = iron (II) ion Monoatomic Anions:  The name of a monoatomic ion is the element name changed to include the suffix -ide, followed by the word ion - o Br = bromide ion Polyatomic Ions:  The names of the polyatomic ions must be memorized  Names are followed by the word ion o NO 3 nitrate ion Ionic Compounds:  Consists of the cation name followed by the anion name  NOT followed by the word ion, because the compound does not carry an overall charge o Charges of individual polyatomic ions that make up the ionic compound cancel out each other’s charge  NO prefixes used to indicate the number of ions present in the formula of an ionic compound 4.5Identifying Covalent & Ionic Compounds I. Covalent: a. Only non-metals b. Use prefixes for naming II. Ionic: a. Contain monoatomic or polyatomic ions b. Contains metals and non-metals or only non-metals c. NEVER uses prefixes d. Sometimes named with cation charge in roman numerals in parentheses
