a substance melts Qualitative nonnumerical observations ie color of a substance macroscopic can be seen by the eye ie mountains rocks sand large range of sizes microscopic too small to be seen clearly by the eye ie tiny plants and animals crystals particulate tiny particles molecules that make up matter and cannot be seen even with powerful optical microscopes Classifying Matter Pure Substance Substance that cannot be separated into other kinds of matter by any physical process Mixture Two or more substances can be homogeneous or heterogeneous separated by physical means ie filtration

particles called atoms Atoms can be divided into subatomic particles 2 Atoms are indivisible they cannot be created or destroyed Nuclear reactions 3 Atoms of the same element are identical they have the same mass and properties Elements have different isotopes which are NOT identical 4 Atoms of one element are different from atoms of any other element Different elements have similar chemical properties 5 Atoms of one element can combine with atoms of another element to form compounds with whole number ratios Law of Multiple Proportions Subatomic Particles In the 18205 Dalton s theory was

of the Atom 1 Every atom contains an extremely small very dense nucleus 2 All of the positive charge and nearly all of the mass of an atom is concentrated in the nucleus 3 The nucleus is surrounded by a much larger volume of nearly empty space that makes up the rest of the atom 4 The space outside the nucleus is very thinly populated by electrons the total charge of which balances exactly the

abundance Looking For Trends in the Elements As elements were discovered scientists were trying to organize them in one place In 1869 Dmitri Mendeleev discovered that if elements were arranged by atomic mass there was a recurring pattern 65 elements had been discovered when Mendeleev began his periodic table Elements with similar properties were placed in rows and columns The increase in atomic mass was not the perfect trend some elements were placed out of order to match their properties In 1913 H G J Moseley determined that elements should be ordered according to atomic number

Hyd rates Some molecules form solids that include water molecules as part of the crystal structure The compounds are called hydrates Water can be removed from the compounds by heating forming anhydrous compounds Example CoCl2 anhydrous is a blue compound CoCl2 can combine with 6 waters to form a hydrate CoCl2 39 H20 is a deep red solid number of water molecules in a hydrate is shown after the anhydrous formula separated by a dot Equation for Dehydration 396 H20 a 6 H20 Naming Hydrates Rules 1 Name the anhydrous compound 2 Use a prefix to indicate the number of water molecules followed by the word hydrate Examples CuSO4 395 H20 copperII sulfate pentahydrate NaZCO3 10 H20 sodium carbonate decahydrate nickel chloride hexahydrate NiCl2 6 H20 Formulas for Hydrated Compounds To determine the number of water molecules bound to CuSO4 you weigh out 1023 g of the hydrate After heating thoroughly only 0654 g of anhydrous CuSO4 remain How many water molecules were bound Mass of hydrate 1023

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Allison Fischer University of Alabama

"I signed up to be an Elite Notetaker with 2 of my sorority sisters this semester. We just posted our notes weekly and were each making over $600 per month. I LOVE StudySoup!"

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
