Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • activation energy (Ea)

    The minimum energy needed for reaction; the height of the energy barrier to formation of products. (Section 14.5)

  • bicyclic

    A structure containing two rings that are fused together.

  • Carboxylic acid

    A compound containing a carboxyl, !COOH, group.

  • Cation

    An atom or group of atoms bearing a positive charge.

  • Charles’s law

    A law stating that at constant pressure, the volume of a given quantity of gas is proportional to absolute temperature. (Section 10.3)

  • crystallization

    The process in which molecules, ions, or atoms come together to form a crystalline solid. (Section 13.2)

  • diagnostic region

    The region of an IR spectrum that contains signals that arise from double bonds, triple bonds, and X!H bonds.

  • diamagnetic.

    Repelled by a magnet; a diamagnetic substance contains only paired electrons. (7.8)

  • effusion

    The escape of a gas through an orifice or hole. (Section 10.8)

  • element

    A substance consisting of atoms of the same atomic number. Historically defined as a substance that cannot be separated into simpler substances by chemical means. (Sections 1.1 and 1.2)

  • frequency

    The number of times per second that one complete wavelength passes a given point. (Section 6.1)

  • half-reaction

    An equation for either an oxidation or a reduction that explicitly shows the electrons involved, for example, Zn2 + 1aq2 + 2 e- ¡ Zn1s2. (Section 20.2)

  • isothermal process

    One that occurs at constant temperature. (Section 19.1)

  • Orbital

    A region of space that can hold two electrons

  • Planck constant (h)

    The constant that relates the energy and frequency of a photon, E = hn. Its value is 6.626 * 10-34 J@s. (Section 6.2)

  • polysaccharides

    Polymers made up of repeating monosaccharide units linked together by glycoside bonds.

  • 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)

  • Shell

    A region of space around a nucleus that can be occupied by electrons, corresponding to a principal quantum number

  • stereoisomers

    Compounds that have the same constitution but differ in the 3D arrangement of atoms.

  • Triol

    A compound containing three hydroxyl groups.
