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.

    but Iron(III). So the compound was Iron(III) Sulfate. I learned many important things from this experiment, being that I learned how to discover the identity of an unknown substance based on my observations on various metal and non-metal ions, I improved my observational skills and I learned that the different

    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.

    average about half way between the two atoms, this kind of bond is sometimes referred to as a 'pure covalent bond', where the electrons are shared evenly. If one atom is slightly more electronegative than the other then the one that is more electronegative will attract the electron pair more

  1. The role of mass customization and postponement in global logistics

    Overall, postponement's primary benefits are to reduce the effects of market uncertainty and to meet customer needs, while effectively managing supply chain costs,' the survey finds. In summary, the time is right for postponement and the benefits of a well-implemented strategy will deliver new 'highs' and 'lows': lower overall supply

  2. Investigate a factor that effects the change in temperature between iron and copper sulphate.

    When I put the paper back on the scale, the scale could have taken into account the weight of the paper. This could have resulted in the odd reading as the scale was accurate to two decimal places so it would have picked up the extra weight of the paper.
