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.

    The next test was for sulphate ions (SO42- ) using 0.1 mol/dm3 of HCL and barium chloride. As we can see on the data table, a white dense precipitate indicates a sulphate. Again, no bubbles were formed. The last test for non metal ions was for carbonates (CO32-) by adding 0.1 mol/dm3 of HCL.

  2. Rate of reaction of hydrochloric acid on magnesium.

    If there is a low concentration of particles then the probability of them colliding would be low as well so the reaction would be slow. However at higher concentrations the collisions are much more frequent so the probability of successful collisions are likely.

  1. Our experiment consisted of two samples of water containing unknown substances, and our objective ...

    It's better if we take the substance to the flame rather that the flame to the substance (e.g. holding and pointing the Bunsen burner towards the substance on a heat-proof mate). This is because then the experiment will be more safer as if we happen to drop the substance then

  2. should salt be banned?

    Restaurants usually order salt in bulk, and often it's not iodized salt. However, anything from the sea - such as seaweed (kelp) or fish -- can be a good source of iodine, says Maberly. A cup of cow's milk contains nearly 100 micrograms of iodine.

  1. Identification of an unknown compound.

    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.

  2. Rate of reaction of different concentrations of sodium thiosulphate.

    The Preliminary Data For the preliminary experiment certain apparatus was used such as; * Safety goggles Cross on a paper * Conical flasks Stop watch * Measuring cylinders Hydrochloric acid * Pipit Sodium thiosulphate * Tap Water Dry cloth I will use this equipment for my own experiment as well.

  1. Particulate Nature of Matter

    The common point about solids is that the atoms or molecules are in place. The temperature that can be shown by solid materials is due to the movement in place of the atoms or molecules. They have no independent linear motion of translation because they are attached to one another.

  2. Antimatter and matter

    The discovery of anti-matter has given us the ability to see organs inside the body such as the brain, using positron emission tomography (PET). This is dealt with in the `anti-matter` poster, where the female character poses confidently between two anti-particles, which would normally annihilate in less than a blink of an eye.
