Atoms Proton, + charge, 1 amu Neutron, 0 charge, 1 amu
Electron, - charge, 0 amu AMU = atomic mass unit Smaller units called quarks make up protons and neutrons

Atomic Structure There are 4 main energy levels around an atom where electrons are found. They are divided into sublevels called orbitals, each orbital holds 2 electrons. S = 1 orbital = 2 electrons P = 3 orbitals = 6 electrons D = 5 orbitals = 10 electrons F = 7 orbitals = 14 electrons

Atomic Structure 1st energy level = s = 2 electrons
2nd energy level = sp = 8 electrons 3rd energy level = spd = 18 electrons 4th energy level = spdf = 32 electrons

Atomic Terms Element, matter made up of all the same atoms
Mass Number, sum of protons and neutrons in the atom Atomic Number, number of protons, always a whole number Atomic Mass Number, the average of all the isotopes of an element

Atomic Stuff Four Fundamental Forces that work in an atom.
1.) Electromagnetic Force, keeps electrons around the nucleus 2.) Strong force, holds the nucleus together 3.) Weak Force, radioactivity, 4.) Gravity, responsible for atomic interactions

More Atomic Terms!! Isotope, atoms of the same element with a different number of neutrons, usually radioactive. Substance, matter that has the same properties throughout, could be an element or compound. Compound, substance made up of two or more elements. Formulas are used to represent compounds, H2O, CO2

Periodic Table Created by Dimitri Mendeleev, Russian, 1869, he organized atoms according to their atomic weight Henry Moseley, British, 1914, rearranged the table by atomic number, currently used today. Groups or families, each vertical column, they have similar properties and the same number of valence or outer electrons

More !?!? Periods or rows, horizontal rows in the table, each row has the same number of energy levels Each chemical is represented by the first or first two letters in the elements name, the first letter is always capitalized. Alkali Metals, 1st column, very reactive metals Alkali Earth Metals, 2nd Column, not quite as reactive metals

More and More!?!? Transition Elements, columns 3-12, typical metals, iron, copper, etc. Metals, all the elements to the left of the metalloids, conduct heat & electricity, shiny, malleable (beaten and formed), ductile (drawn into wires) Metalloids, diagonal column of elements between metals and nonmetals, they have metallic and nonmetallic properties

Still more Halogens, second to last column of elements, group 17, very reactive gases, halogen means “salt former” reacts with metals to form salts Noble Gases, last column, unreactive, inert gases Nonmetals, all elements to the right of the metalloids, do not conduce heat or electricity, dull, brittle, powdery.

The end Rare Earth Elements, two separate rows at the bottom of the table, called lanthanides and actinides, all the actinides are radioactive.
