Problem 1.19

In the process of attempting to characterize a substance, a chemist makes the following observations: The substance is a silvery white, lustrous metal. It melts at $$649^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$$ and boils at $$1105^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$$. Its density at $$20^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$$ is $$1.738 \mathrm{~g} / \mathrm{cm}^{3}$$. The substance burns in air, producing an intense white light. It reacts with chlorine to give a brittle white solid. The substance can be pounded into thin sheets or drawn into wires. It is a good conductor of electricity. Which of these characteristics are physical properties, and which are chemical properties?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5) In the process of attempting to characterize a substance, a chemist makes the following observations: The substance is a silvery white, lustrous metal. It melts at 649∘C and boils at 1105∘C. Its density at 20∘C is 1.738 g/cm3. The substance burns in air, producing an intense white light. It reacts with chlorine to give a brittle white solid. The substance can be pounded into thin sheets or drawn into wires. It is a good conductor of electricity. Which of these characteristics are physical properties, and which are chemical propertiesMany substances, fuels for example, release energy when they react. The chemical energy of a fuel is due to the potential energy stored in the arrangements of its atoms. As we will learn in later chapters, chemical energy is released when bonds between atoms are formed, and consumed when bonds between atoms are broken. When a fuel burns, some bonds are broken and others are formed, but the net effect is to convert chemical potential energy to thermal energy, the energy associated with temperature. The increase in thermal energy arises from increased molecular motion and hence increased kinetic energy at the molecular level.
