Chapter Five Comp​ounds→ When two or more elements combine, the new substance has different properties than the elements that formed the compound. Coval​ent Bond→ Formed between two nonmetals. Electrons are S ​ HARED​ instead of transferred. ​ Ionic Bond→ Bond between metal and nonmetal. Solid state is a lattice of alternating cations and anions. Che​mical Formula→ Indicates the number of atoms in each molecule Ex) CO 2 Emp​ irical Formula → Gives relative number of atoms in a molecule St​ ructural Formula→ Uses lines to show covalent bonds L​ wis Dot Structures→ The dots represent the valence electron’s. Shows depiction of the octet rule. ​ Nomenclature→ Naming system of compounds and molecules. The sum of (+) charges and (-) 3+ 2− charges must ​ALWAYS​ balance. Ex) Al and O = Al O 2 3 Examples 1) Ionic compound. Name cation metal + base name of anion +ide a) KCL = Potassium chloride b) CaO = Calcium oxide 2) Naming Ionic compound with a metal that has ​more than one​ type of Cation 2+ a) Fe = Iron (II) b) CrBr =3Chromium (III) bromide 3) Naming polyatomic Ions. The charge refers to the charge of the whole ion, not each individual part. a) FeSO = 4ron (II) sulfate b) NH NO4= Am3onium Nitrate 4) Oxy Anions are anions that contain oxygen and another element. When oxygen is more than the other element then ending = ate, when it is less, then = ite, if there are more that 2 ions = hypo is less than, per = more than. a) ClO- = hypochlorite b) ClO2= chlorite c) ClO3= chlorate d) ClO4 = perchlorate 5) Naming hydrated ionic compounds (hydrates) a) MgSO4 * 7H20= magnesium sulfate heptahydrate ​ Molar Mass → ​[#atoms of first element][amu of first element]+[#atoms second element][amu second element]+...etc. ​ To find # molecules in mass given→ gCO2→ mol CO2→ # molecules ​ Composition of Compounds → mass % composition = element’s % of compound’s mass Equation = mass element X in one mole of compound/mass of 1 mol of compound (*100%) ● To calculate mass of element from given mass of compound. Mass of element over mass of molecule. ● *Chemical formula gives relationship between mols not mass. Mass of element in given mass of a compound → mass compound to moles compound to moles element to mass element. To determine chemical formula from data. 1) Find mol of each element from given molecule. Divide by smallest subscript. Round to closest integer. 2) Molecular Formula = empirical formula *n (1,2,3…) a) N = molar mass/ empirical formula molar mass Organic Compounds 1) Organic compounds contain carbon and hydrogen. Hydrocarbons are simplest.
