9/12 CHAPTER 2 Atoms and Elements (cont.) The Atom (cont.) 1) Notation a) C The atomic symbol for the element b) 6 The atomic number, which represents the amount of protons in the element. The atomic number is often left out of the notation because it is assumed the reader knows this already. c) 12 The mass number shows the number of protons and neutrons, which also tells you how much the element weighs. d) The top right corner will display the charge of the element (Such as in O ) 2− e) The bottom right corner tells you how many of the atoms of that element there are Properties of Subatomic Particles Part of Atom Charge Relative Mass (amu) Proton +1 1.00728 Neutron 0 1.00867 Electron 1 0.00055 2) Isotopes a) Isotopes are atoms with the same number of protons but different number of neutrons i) For example, Carbon12 consists of .9892(8) of all carbon, or 98.938% b) Isotopes can be written with the symbol and atomic number or simply as the name followed by a dash and the number i) For example can also be written as Neon20 c) Most elements have isotopes i) Hydrogen1 makes up .999885(70) of all hydrogen (1) Found in a typical water molecule ii) Hydrogen2 (Deuterium) makes up 0.000115(70) of all hydrogen (1) Found in “heavy water”, which costs about $20 per 10g iii) Hydrogen3 (Tritium) is very rare (1) It is radioactive and must be worked with in special labs d) Atoms can have any number of isotopes i) Example Calcium (Ca) has six different isotopes, and 96.941% is Carbon40 3) Average Mass a) Mass numbers are always whole numbers but the mass on the periodic table is a decimal b) The mass on the periodic table is the average mass. You calculate it from the mass number of all the isotopes and their natural abundance. c) Atomic mass = (fraction of isotope 1 × mass of isotope 1) + (fraction of isotope 2 × mass of isotope 2) + … i) If you have the percentage divide by 100 to get fraction. d) Example Problem i) Silicon has three natural isotopes (1) Silicon28 = 27.9769271amu makes up 92.2297% (2) Silicon29 = 28.9764949amu makes up 4.6832% (3) The third isotope makes up 3.0872% ii) Find the mass of the third isotope to four significant figures (1) Atomic mass = (fraction of isotope 1 × mass of isotope 1) + (fraction of isotope 2 ×mass of isotope 2) + (fraction of isotope 3 × mass of isotope 3) (2) 28.09(amu of Si) = (27.9769271×0.922297) + (28.9764949×0.046832) + (Si3× 0.030872) (3) 28.09 = 25.8030399 + 1.3570272 + (Si3×0.030872) (4) Si3 = 30.14amu, which is Silicon30 Compounds, Ions, and the Periodic Table 1) Compounds (Molecules) a) Molecular Formula vs. Empirical Formula i) Molecular is the exact amount of atoms in a molecule (1) Ex: C H2678 13 ii) Empirical is the simplest form of the formula (with whole numbers) (1) Ex: C H2678d13 e by 13 → C H O 2 6 iii) Sometimes the molecular formula and the Empirical Formula are the same, sometimes they are not iv) Ex: Benzene’s molecular formula is C H , the6m6rical Formula is CH 2) Introduction to the Periodic Table a) The rows across are called periods, and the columns down are called groups. b) All elements want to be a noble gas (group 18) so they will want to lose or gain electrons to have the same number as the nearest noble gas. i) Group 17 (Halogens) like to have 1 charge ii) Group 1 (Alkali Metals) like to have +1 charge iii) Group 2 (Alkaline Earth Metals) Like to have =2 charge iv) (Noble gases are inert and will not interact with other elements) c) This method of prediction becomes less accurate the farther you travel from the noble gas or work with metals d) Charge i) Atoms with a positive charge are called Cations ii) Atoms with Negative charge are called Anions e) Some elements like to be in pairs, they form pure molecules. i) H2O2F2Br2I2 N2 C2 (1) An acronym to remember is HOFBrINCl ii) These elements can usually be found in the Halogens group (group 17) or at the top of group 16 and 15. (1) Hydrogen is often written one top of the Halogens group as well as the Alkali Metals because of it’s unique properties 3) Ions a) When atoms or molecules lose or gain electrons they form charged particles called ions. + i) Na → Na +e ii) O+2e → O 2 b) There is no change to the protons in the element c) Positive ions are called cations and negative ions are called anions 4) Molecules vs. Ions a) Most molecules and atoms are happy with the number of electrons they have, so they do not have a charge. b) Ions are molecules/atoms that want to give up or take an extra electron or two c) A sign that a compound is ionic is the first element in the molecule is from the first two groups with a positive charge 5) Polyatomic Ions a) “A polyatomic ion, also known as a molecular ion, is a charged chemical species (ion) composed of two or more atoms covalently bonded or of a metal complex that can be considered to be acting as a single unit.’’ Wikipedia b) Ammonium (NH ) is the4nly important positive polyatomic atom we need to remember (though we should know hydronium (H O ). + 3 c) Hydroxide Ion (OH) is one of many negative polyatomic ions we need to remember. The rest are in the book. Use Figure 2.5 (but if your book is published in 2015 use the online version, your book is older.) 6) Ionic Compounds a) Also known as an electrolyte (which is a sugar or salt) b) Na Cl → table salt/sodium chloride is a strong electrolyte Naming 1) Ions a) Monatomic Cations i) Basically the same word, unless there are different charges of that element, then must designate with Roman Numeral + (1) Na → Sodium (2) K → Potassium 3+ (3) Mn → Manganese (III) b) Monatomic Anions i) Basically add ide to the end of the word (1) F → Fluoride (2) H → Hydride 2 (3) O → Oxide 3 (4) N → Nitride 9/14 c) Oxoanions ClO → perchlorate 4 2 NO 3nitrate SO 4 sulfate ClO 3chlorate 2 NO 2nitrite SO 3 sulfite ClO 2chlorite ClO → hypochlorite i) ate = more oxygen ii) ite = less oxygen d) When going from name to formula always balance formulas i) Example: Sodium Sulfide (1) Na is and S is 2 (2) 2(+) + 2 is zero → balanced (3) Na S 2 ii) Example: Iron(II) Oxide 2+ 2 (1) Fe is and O (2) 2+ and 2 are already balanced (3) FeO e) Summary i) Cations: the name is the same as the element ii) Anions: add ide to the name of the element iii) Polyatomic: STUDY HARD ( Flashcards?) iv) When you a write a molecular formula for ionic compounds remember to balance the charge. 1) D 2) Binary Molecular Compounds a) Unlike ionic compounds there is no single way to deduce the formula of a binary molecular compound. b) Systematic Naming i) The first word is the name of the first element in the formula, with a Greek prefix if necessary. ii) The second word consists of: (1) The appropriate Greek prefix (2) The stem of the name of the second element (3) The suffix ide iii) Number of Prefixes (1) 1 mono (2) 2 di (3) 3 tri (4) 4 tetra (5) 5 penta (6) 6 hexa (7) 7 hepta (8) 8 octa iv) Example (1) P O 46 (2) P is phosphorus, with the prefix tetra for 4 (3) O is oxygen, with the prefix hexa and the suffix ide (4) Tetraphosphorus hexaoxide 3) Acids a) Common Acids i) You recognize an acid because it starts with hydrogen ii) The names of acids are derived from the names of ions Pure Substances (don’t use often) Water Solutions (assume use this) HCl(g) → Hydrogen chloride H (aq), Cl(aq) → Hydrochloric acid + HBr(g) → Hydrogen bromide H (aq), Br(aq) → Hydrobromic acid + HI(g) → Hydrogen iodine H (aq), I(aq) → Hydroiodic acid iii) To get the name add Hydro and ic to the second element (the one that isn’t hydrogen) and add the word acid b) Oxoacids of Chlorine i) Big ones to remember (1) HNO → ni3ic acid (2) H SO → sulfuric acid 2 4 ii) Basically every ate becomes ic and every ite becomes ous. The prefixes per and hypo stay the same ClO → perchlorate ion HClO → perchloric acid 4 4 ClO 3chlorate ion HClO → 3loric acid ClO 2chlorite ion HClO → 2lorous acid ClO → hypochlorite ion HClO → hypochlorous acid (column one is the ion, column two is the acid)
