Introduction

Material assignment Element: An element is a substance made of only one type of atom, and it contains the same amount of protons, neutrons and electrons in every atom, e.g. sodium, chlorine, iron, hydrogen and potassium. Atomic symbol: Na Name: sodium 2,8,1 Relative atomic mass: 23 Atomic number: 11 Compounds: are substances made from 2 or more elements and compounds that are chemically bonded, they carry 2 or more different types of atoms they can bond in different ways like covalent, metallic, ionic, Ionic bonding Sodium atom (Na) Sodium ion it has lost an electron. Sodium reacts through ionic bonding with chlorine. Atomic symbol: Cl Name: chlorine 2,8,7 Relative atomic mass: 35 Atomic number: 17 Chlorine atom (Cl) The atoms are held together by the strong electrostatic attraction between the negative and positive charges in the 2 ions. Na 2,8 ,1 Na+ 2,8 Cl 2,8,7 Cl- 2,8,8 formula: Na+Cl- 1 H 2 He 3 Li 4 Be 5 B 6 C 7 N 8 O 9 F 10 Ne 11 Na 12 Mg 13 Al 14 Si 15 P 16 S 17 Cl 18 Ar 19 K 20 Ca 21 Sc 22 Ti 23 V 24 Cr 25 Mn 26 Fe 27 Co 28 Ni 29 Cu 30 Zn 31 Ga 32 Ge 33 As 34 Se 35 Br 36 Kr 37 ...read more.

for example: Copper (Cu) Sodium (Na) Magnesium (Mg). Metallic bonding is the attraction of metal ions e.g. Cu 2+ (Copper cation ) and the delocalised electrons. (Opposite charges attract).

Conclusion

www.funsci.com/fun3_en/exper2/exper2.htm Aerosol mixtures: This is the desperation of small solid particles to dissolve in a liquid solution; although these solutions resemble a real compound solution they are not, this can be tested by: shine a light on a sol mixture, although the solid particles are very small they are still able to diffuse parts of the light, this process is called 'Tyndall' some examples of a sol mixture are: clay and water mixture. Gel mixtures: This is the desperation of small solid particles to dissolve in a liquid solution. Gel mixtures have the same characteristics as a sol mixtures in fact if you add water to a gel mixture it becomes a sol mixture and in reverse if you increase the concentration of solid materials of a sol mixture it will become a gel, solution, the only difference is it's gelatinous properties and the fact that even though a gel might be gelatinous at room temperature e.g. broth gelatine, if you heat it up it will become liquid, and vice versa but some gel mixtures will not reverse to their original state for example, the white bit in eggs, once the gelatine is heated it will take a solid state and it will not change back to its original state. * www.newi.ac.uk/buckleyc/bonding.htm-21k * www.chemguide.co.uk/atoms/bonding/ionic.html-13k- * www.wpbschoolhouse.btinternet.co.uk/page04/4_72bond.htm#molecules * http://library.thinkquest.org/11430/research/hydrogen.htm * http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070603081901AA6DwDQ * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methane-17k * http://kentsimmons.uwinnipeg.ca/cm1504/Image55.gif * http://qldscienceteachers.tripod.com/junior/chem/metals.html * www.corrosionsource.com/handbook/periodic/ * www.answers.com/topic/emulsion * www.funsci.com/fun3_en/exper2/exper2.htm * http://www.claytoncramer.com/weblog/2005_05_22_archive.html ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

    In fact, three dark precipitates formed where Cu2+ had a dark precipitate on top, Fe2+ had a bronze precipitate with small black pieces and Fe3+ had a darker orange precipitate. In my fifth hypothesis I inferred that if I was testing for ammonium ions (NH4+)

  2. The rates of reaction between CaCO3 and HCL

    If the mass of the two reactions do not change and the morality of HCl is 1 then for more CO2 to be produced more atoms of C and O have to be present in CaCO3 thus making it purer.

    These cells differ in there chemistry, cost/practicality, impact of society and impact on the environment. The dry cell consists of a zinc outer casing which acts as the negative electrode. An aqueous paste of ammonium chloride, powdered carbon and manganese dioxide around the carbon cathode create the rest of the cell.

    Also, by dropping it, you risk damage to the equipment. 9. We decided on 20cm3 to be the volume we use to sample both of the samples. When putting 20cm3 into the measuring cylinder, we used a pipette to have more control over the amount of liquid we were putting into the cylinder.
