SOLVING DENSITY PROBLEMS 1. Density itself can be calculated from experimental values: Density = mass of object, solution, substance volume occupied (mL, cm 3, L) Volume can be determined in several ways: a) direct measurement, liquid b) liquid displacement, solid c) measurement of dimensions, calculation
Volume by Displacement: A liquid in which the solid does not dissolve is suitable for this technique
Calculation, Volume: V = l X w X ht (rectangle) V = e 3 (cube) V = r 2 ht (cylinder) radius = diameter / 2; all dimensions in same units diameter height l w ht
2. In all other cases, where conversion of mass to volume or volume to mass is desired, density is used as a “conversion factor”: SOLVING DENSITY PROBLEMS 2.70 g Al = 1 = 1 cm 3 Al 1 cm 3 Al 2.70 g Al “conversion factors” D, Al = 2.70 g /cm g Al = 1 cm 3 Al

Percent Composition by Mass “Percent composition” is a convenient way to describe a mixture or solution or compound in terms of mass of the part contained in 100 mass units of the whole: “This solution is 15% salt” means that for every 15 g of salt there is 100 g of solution or: 15 g salt = 100 g solution “The brass alloy is 15 % tin and 45% copper” 100 g alloy = 15 g tin = 45 g copper
Like Density, Percent Composition is: calculated from experimental values used as a conversion factor. Calculation of % by mass (g): % Part = g part X 100% g whole A brass alloy weighing g was found to contain g of copper. What is the % of Cu in the alloy? %Cu = g Cu X 100% = 43.16% Cu g alloy = g Cu in 100 g alloy
Percent as a Conversion Factor What mass in grams of a brass alloy would contain g Cu if the alloy is 43.16% Cu? Question: g Cu = ? g brass Relationship: g Cu = 100 g brass Setup and solve: g Cu X 100 g brass = g brass g Cu % factor

Atomic Structure, Atomic Number, Mass All matter (anything that has mass and occupies volume) can be classified as: an element (basic building blocks of nature: H, O, Au ) a compound (made up of two or more elements) a mixture (any physical combination of the above) Elements, the simplest forms of matter, are composed of unique tiny particles called atoms.
Atomic Structure The atom itself is composed of three types of “subatomic particles”, the proton (p), the neutron (n), and the electron (e). Each element has its own unique pairings of these three particles. It is the number and the placement of these particles which gives rise to the different properties exhibited by each element.
Comparative Mass, Charge: Nuclear Particles
Nuclear Particle Location Within the Atom 1. Protons and Neutrons: “Nucleus of Atom” compact positive mass in center of atom “all” of the mass, negligible volume (10 -2 pm) 2. Electrons: “Outside the Nucleus” cloud of negative charge “all” of the volume (10 3 pm), negligible mass
THE “NUCLEAR” ATOM Nucleus, C atom Electron cloud.
ATOMIC SYMBOLS Each atom of an element can be represented by a symbol that describes how many protons, neutrons and electrons are contained in this basic unit: X A Z Mass number, A: total #, p + n Atomic Number, Z: #p (equals #e) Elemental symbol
Accordingly, A, the mass number of the atom, represents both the total number of nuclear particles (p + n) and the approximate mass of the atom (in amu’s) Because atoms (and the subatomic particles) are so tiny, a relative mass scale was setup to describe atomic weights in a convenient numerical range. The atom of Carbon which contains 6 protons and 6 neutrons in its nucleus is assigned the weight of amu (atomic weight units), which essentially makes the mass of each proton and neutron 1.00 amu. The Mass Number, A
Z, The Atomic Number All known elements are listed in the familiar “Periodic Table of the Elements” in order of increasing atomic number, found usually in the upper right hand corner above each element’s symbol. The atomic number represents the number of protons in the nucleus of every atom of that element. Since every atom is electrically neutral, the number of protons in the nucleus represents the total positive charge of the nucleus, which is exactly balanced by the total number of negatively charged electrons outside the nucleus.
Group Work: Atomic Symbols
Isotopes of the Elements For a given element, the number of protons and electrons is a fixed value and determines which element is being described. The number of neutrons in the atom of a given element is not fixed, and several different atoms of a given element are generally found, varying in atomic mass due to differing numbers of neutrons. The different atoms of a given element which vary by neutron count and by mass are described as “isotopes” of that element.
Isotopic Symbols Isotopic symbols represent specific isotopic forms of an element. Consider hydrogen:
Atomic Mass, revisited: The atomic mass of any isotope of an element can be approximated by a simple addition of the number of p’s and n’s in the nucleus. However, naturally occurring samples of any element generally include several different isotopes of different atomic masses. The atomic mass value given for each element (as found in your Periodic Table) is a weighted average of all the isotopes.
The given atomic mass for any element will be closest to the most abundant element in most cases. Consider below the calculation of the atomic mass of magnesium, amu: Average Mass Element, amu = (mass, isotope A X % abundance A) + (mass, isotope B X % abundance B) + (mass, isotope C X % abundance C) General Method of Calculation:
Calculation of average atomic mass of Magnesium: ( x.7899) + ( x.1000) + ( x.1101) = (18.95) + (2.499) + (2.861) = amu
