2 What is an atom?An atom is the smallest particle of an element that retains its identity in a chemical reaction.Word origin: atom comes from the Greek word atomos meaning “ indivisible”
3 Elements & CompoundsWhat would atoms of an element, mixture and compound look like at a microscopic level?
4 Subatomic Particles The parts that make up an atom! protons neutrons electronselectronprotonnucleusneutron
5 Subatomic Particles Electrons Protons Neutrons Found in the nucleus Identifies the element#of protons = specific elementResponsible for chemical and physical propertiesSpin around in set regions outside of nucleusMost important in chemical reactionsFarthest electron away from nucleus determines how atoms chemical to combine to one another.Found in the nucleusPlays no role in chemical behaviorPurpose: to put space between protons

33 Atomic MassComing back to this…Atomic mass is the weighted average mass of all the atomic masses of the isotopes of that atom.So we involved all the different forms of ATOMS of an element (ions not an issue here) and how frequent they are
34 Average Atomic Mass cont. To find the Average Atomic Mass (generally referred to as the atomic mass of an element) we need to use two thingsThe mass of the isotopeMultiplied by its frequencyThen we add all the forms up.
35 Example of Average Atomic Mass Cl-35 is about 75.5 % and Cl-37 about 24.5% of natural chlorine.35 x =10035.537 x =Add Us Up
