● Naming Acids ○ What are acids? ■ Substances that ionize (separate into charged particles) in water to produce H+ ions that act as protons ■ Aqueous (aq) means that the substance is dissolved in water ■ Note that just because something is dissolved, that does not mean that it is is ionized-- for example, sugar can be aqueous, but it does not form ions ○ We name acids depending on whether or not the anion, or the negatively charged ion, contains oxygen ■ If it does ​NOT​ contain oxygen ● Hydro(anion root)ic acid ● HBr= Hydrobromic ccid ● HF=Hydrofluoric acid ● HCl=Hydrochloric acid ■ If it ​DOES​ contain oxygen (polyatomic Ions) it is called an oxyacid ● ATE-IC / ITE-OUS ● If the anion ends in -ate, the acid’s name ends in -ic ○ H3PO4=phosphor​ic​ acid ○ HNO3=nitric acid ○ H2SO4=sulfuric acid ● If the anion ends in -ite, the acid ends in -ous ○ H3PO3=phosphoro ​ us​ acid ○ HNO2=nitrous acid ○ H2SO3=sulfurous acid ● Molar Mass ○ The mass of one mole of a specific compound (g/mol) ○ The sum of the atomic masses ■ H2O: 2(1.01 g/mol)+ 1(16.00 g/mol) = 18.02 g/mol ● Mass percent mass of element in one mole of the compound ○ molar mass of the compound ○ Used to describe the composition of a compound ● Formulas ○ Empirical Formula ■ The simplest formula with correct “reduced” ratio of atoms ○ Molecular Formula ■ Denotes the actual number of atoms of elements in each molecule ○ (Empirical Formula)(N) = Molecular Formula, where N is a positive integer ○ All ionic formulas are empirical ■ NaF, CaF2 ● Combustion Analysis ○ Mass percent is determined experimentally by combustion analysis ○ A pure compound sample is weighed, heated using O2, breaking bonds and causing the sample to form oxides which are then weighed ■ Carbon becomes carbon dioxide ■ Hydrogen becomes Dihydrogen monoxide (water) ■ Sulfur becomes sulfur trioxide ■ Nitrogen becomes nitrogen dioxide ● Chemical Equations ○ Balanced chemical equations can tell you ■ Reactants ■ Products ■ Physical states of each ■ Number of molecules ■ Number of moles ■ Mass ○ Equations must be balanced in order to account for the Law of Conservation of Mass ○ The formulas never change, only the amount of compounds ■ Only change the “coefficient” of each compound, NOT the ratio of elements within the compound ○ Tips ■ Make a chart of each element and the total amount on each side ■ Work with complex compounds first and then deal with single elements or simpler compounds last ■ Keep polyatomic ions together if possible ● IE if there is an acetate ion on each side, consider the ion as a single term instead of Hydrogen, Carbon and Oxygen
