Summary of Chapter 2: Chemistry and Measurements

Measurement is an essential part of health careers such as nursing, dental hygiene, respiratory therapy, nutrition, and veterinary technology. The temperature, height, and weight of a patient are measured and recorded.

Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • bond dipole

    The dipole moment that is due to unequal electron sharing between two atoms in a covalent bond. (Section 9.3)

  • constructive interference

    When two waves interact with each other in a way that produces a wave with a larger amplitude.

  • delocalized electrons

    Electrons that are spread over a number of atoms in a molecule or a crystal rather than localized on a single atom or a pair of atoms. (Section 9.6)

  • diborane

    B2H6. A dimeric structure formed when one borane molecule reacts with another.

  • electron affinity

    The energy change that occurs when an electron is added to a gaseous atom or ion. (Section 7.5)

  • Enantioselective reaction

    A reaction that produces one enantiomer in preference to the other.

  • fatty acids

    Long-chain carboxylic acids.

  • Furanose

    A fi ve-membered cyclic form of a monosaccharide.

  • Geminal coupling

    Spin-spin coupling that occurs between nonequivalent H atoms bonded to the same C atom. The H atoms are generally nonequivalent owing to restricted bond rotation in the molecule

  • Haloarene (aryl halide)

    A compound containing a halogen atom bonded to a benzene ring. Given the symbol Ar!X

  • Hell-Volhard-Zelinsky reaction

    A reaction in which a carboxylic acid undergoes a-halogenation when treated with bromine in the presence of PBr3.

  • kinetic-molecular theory

    A set of assumptions about the nature of gases. These assumptions, when translated into mathematical form, yield the ideal-gas equation. (Section 10.7)

  • mass number

    The sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of a particular atom. (Section 2.3)

  • Meso compound

    An achiral compound possessing two or more chiral centers that also has chiral isomers

  • percent yield

    The ratio of the actual (experimental) yield of a product to its theoretical (calculated) yield, multiplied by 100. (Section 3.7)

  • strong activators

    Groups that strongly activate an aromatic ring toward electrophilic aromatic substitution, thereby significantly enhancing the rate of the reaction.

  • termination

    In radical reactions, a step in which two radicals are joined to give a compound with no unshared electrons.

  • Vinylic carbocation

    A double-helix model for the secondary structure of a DNA molecule

  • weak activators

    Groups that weakly activate an aromatic ring toward electrophilic aromatic substitution, thereby enhancing the rate of the reaction.

  • Wolff-Kishner reduction

    A method for converting a carbonyl group into a methylene group (CH2) under basic conditions.
