Summary of Chapter 3: Matter and Energy

Look around the room you are in—what do you see? You might see your desk, your bed, or a glass of water. Maybe you have a window and can see trees, grass, or mountains. You can certainly see this book and possibly the table it sits on. What are these things made of? They are all made of matter.

Chapter 3: Matter and Energy includes 117 full step-by-step solutions. This textbook survival guide was created for the textbook: Introductory Chemistry, edition: 5.

Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Activating group

    Any substituent on a benzene ring that causes the rate of electrophilic aromatic substitution to be greater than that for benzene.

  • amphoteric oxide.

    An oxide that exhibits both acidic and basic properties. (8.6)

  • azide synthesis

    A method for preparing primary amines that avoids the formation of secondary and tertiary amines.

  • beta (b) rays.

    Electrons. (2.2)

  • carboxylic acid

    A compound that contains the ¬COOH functional group. (Sections 16.10 and 24.4)

  • cathode.

    The electrode at which reduction occurs. (18.2)

  • chemically equivalent

    In NMR spectroscopy, protons (or carbon atoms) that occupy identical electronic environments and produce only one signal.

  • cycloalkanes

    Saturated hydrocarbons of general formula CnH2n in which the carbon atoms form a closed ring. (Section 24.2)

  • Ether

    A compound containing an oxygen atom bonded to two carbon atoms.

  • galvanic cell

    See voltaic cell. (Section 20.3)

  • hydrophilic

    Water attracting. The term is often used to describe a type of colloid. (Section 13.6)

  • mercapto group

    An SH group.

  • metallic bond

    Bonding, usually in solid metals, in which the bonding electrons are relatively free to move throughout the three-dimensional structure. (Section 8.1)

  • oxidation–reduction (redox) reaction

    A chemical reaction in which the oxidation states of certain atoms change. (Section 4.4; Chapter 20: Introduction)

  • polyurethanes

    Polymers made up of repeating urethane groups, also sometimes called carbamate groups (!N!CO2!).

  • reducing agent, or reductant

    The substance that is oxidized and thereby causes the reduction of some other substance in an oxidation–reduction reaction. (Section 20.1)

  • s-cis

    A conformation of a conjugated diene in which the disposition of the two p bonds with regard to the connecting single bond is cis-like (a dihedral angle of 0°).

  • second-order reaction

    A reaction in which the overall reaction order (the sum of the concentration- term exponents) in the rate law is 2. (Section 14.4)

  • symmetric stretching

    In IR spectroscopy, when two bonds are stretching in phase with each other.

  • Wavelength (l)

    The distance between consecutive peaks on a wave
