Refers to the physical forms in which matter exists: solid, liquid, and gas.
States of matter
The maximum amount of a substance which will dissolve in a given amount of solvent at a specific temperature
The substance that dissolves in a solution
A homogeneous(uniformly distributed) mixture of two or more substances
The material that dissolves the other substance(s) in a solution. It is the dissolving medium
State the characteristics of all phases of matter
- Solids - definate shape and volume. Slow molecular motion. Binding forces strong.
- Liquids - Definite volume, indefinate shape. faster molecular motion Weaker binding than a solid. Slightly compressible
- Gases - indefinite volume, compressible. indefinite shape, very fast molecular motion weak bonds
State the mass and charge of all subatomic particles
- Proton - Positive Charge - 1.0078 AMU
- Neutron - Neutral Charge - 1.0087 AMU
- Electron - Negative Charge - 5.486 x 10^-4 AMU
Define Chemical and Physical changes and give examples
- Chemical changes result in an identity change when a substance interacts with other matter
- Physical change properties that can be determined without changing the identity of a substance
What determines how an atom behaves chemically
Define atomic weight
The weighted average of the masses of all of its naturally occurring isotopes
What is Avogadro's number Were does it come from
- It comes from experimenting to find out how many atoms are in a mol.
- 1 mol is 6.022 x 10 23 atoms
- 1 mol of gas occupies 22.4L at Standard Temperature and Pressure
- Avogadro's number represents the number of atoms in X grams of any element, where X is the atomic weight of the element
Define a pure substance
- A pure substance can't be separated into something else by any physical or mechanical means
- Pure Gold is an example
What are the similarities between members of a group?
On the periodic table each column is a group. The difference between each group is the number of valance electrons.
