Introduction

States of Matter SOLID LIQUID GAS Atoms Al Electrons orbit the nucleus, it does this in shells, 1st shell holds a max of 2 electrons, after that shells hold up to 8 electrons. Proton = positive Neutron = neutral Electron = Negative Isotopes- atoms that are the same but can vary in the number of neutrons but have the same amount of protons. e.g. C C C IONIC BONDING In general metal atoms lose electrons to form positive ions and non- metal atoms gain electrons to form negative ions. An ionic compound is formed when a metal atom joins with a non-metal atom. An electron is lost from sodium and gained in the Clorine making them both have full outer shells. Compounds with giant ionic structures * Made of crystals * Usually have high M.P. ...read more.

- Gas (aq) - aqueous solution(dissolves in water) IONS Some ions contain more than one element e.g. NO3 (-) but the same rules apply as in simple ions. Brackets are needed when more complex ions are involves e.g. Fe(3+) + NO3(-) Fe(NO3)3 elements tend to be positive ions and compounds negative ions. ELEMENTS AND COMPOUNDS If you have one metal and one non-metal the compound will end in "ide". e.g Magnesium + Oxygen Magnesium oxide If you have two non-metals the compound will end in "ate" e.g. Copper + sulphur Copper sulphate + Oxygen The numbers in a formula show the amount of each kind of atom in the compound or element. e.g. H2 two hydrogen atoms BALANCING EQUATIONS * Chemical reactions are really re-arrangements of atome reactant substances that have their atoms re-arranged and they become product substances. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Alkali metal compounds are white when solid an colourless in a solution, soluble, they have a PH above 7, i.e. alkali Halogens are in group 7 Flourine Chlorine Bromine Iodine yellow green red/brown Purple gas gas solid liquid Fl2 Cl2 Br2 I2 A Halide is formed when a Halogen is in an equation. TRANSITIONAL METALS * Found between groups 2 and 3 * Can form oxides with two different formulas both oxides formed are colourless * Transitional metals and their compounds make good catalysts. Uses: Iron - man hole covers Copper - water pipes Nickel - coins Titanium - aircraft industry SODIUM CHLORIDE Can be ontained from collecting sea water and allowing water to evaporate leaving salt. Formula = Na + Cl NaCl Substance Uses Chlorine solvents, bleeches, kills bacteria in pools and drinking water, whitens paper Hydrogen Combines with oxygen to form water Sodium Hydroxide Soap, detergents, paper ...read more.

    It is important to make sure the nozzle on the Bunsen burner is fully closed since it will produce the highly-visible yellow safety flame. Since the nozzle is closed, less oxygen is able to get in and combust, so the flame is not very hot and can be easily seen.

    The peak at 9.8ppm has a quartet splitting pattern that means that the group is attached to carbon atom that is bonded to three protons (the ?CH3 group). Therefore, the NMR has provided evidence on the number and types of proton-containing groups that are present as well as how these groups are bonded together.
