The Periodic Table, Molecules and Molecular Compounds, and Ions and Ionic Compounds (Sections)Two compounds have the same empirical formula. One substance is a gas, whereas the other is a viscous liquid. How is it possible for two substances with the same empirical formula to have markedly different properties?
th th Chapter 8 from “Introductory Chemistry” by Zumdahl and Decoste, 7 /8 edition Pg 167. COUNTING BY WEIGHING Average mass = total mass Number of item/variables Pg 170. ATOMIC MASSES: COUNTING ATOMS BY WEIGHING Want to know how many molecules are needed to make carbon dioxide C (s) + O2(g) CO 2g) 1 atom + 1 molecule 1 molecule *because atoms weigh so little and kilograms would be too large of a measurement, chemists use Atomic Mass Unit (amu) In terms of grams: 1 amu = 1.66 x 10 -24g Average Atomic Mass: (means what its named…duh) Ex: Mass of 1000 natural C atoms = (1000 atoms) (12.01 (amu/atom))
