2 2Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2.1 THE ATOMIC THEORY OF MATTER Material world made up of tiny indivisible particles they called atomos, meaning “indivisible or uncuttable.” Dalton’s Atomic Theory Dalton’s atomic theory was based on the four postulates 1. Each element is composed of extremely small particles called atoms. An atom of the element oxygen An atom of the element nitrogen

3 3Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2. All atoms of a given element are identical, but the atoms of one element are different from the atoms of all other elements. 3. Atoms of one element cannot be changed into atoms of a different element by chemical reactions; atoms are neither created nor destroyed in chemical reactions.

4 4Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 4. Compounds are formed when atoms of more than one element combine; a given compound always has the same relative number and kind of atoms. Dalton’s theory explains several laws of chemical combination that were known during his time

5 5Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi based on postulate 4 In a given compound, the relative numbers and kinds of atoms are constant. Law of constant composition Law of conservation of mass The total mass of materials present after a chemical reaction is the same as the total mass present before the reaction. based on postulate 3

6 6Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi A good theory explains known facts and predicts new ones Dalton used his theory to deduce the law of multiple proportions: If two elements A and B combine to form more than one compound, the masses of B that can combine with a given mass of A are in the ratio of small whole numbers.

7 7Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi considering water and hydrogen peroxide water 8.0 g Oxygen 1.0 g Hydrogen hydrogen peroxide 16.0 g Oxygen 1.0 g Hydrogen Thus, the ratio of the mass of oxygen per gram of hydrogen in the two compounds is 2:1.

8 8Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Using Dalton’s atomic theory, we conclude that hydrogen peroxide contains twice as many atoms of oxygen per hydrogen atom as does water. 2.2 THE DISCOVERY OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE Today we know that the atom is composed of subatomic particles. fact: Particles with the same charge repel one another, whereas particles with unlike charges attract one another.

9 9Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Cathode Rays and Electrons  Electrons move from the cathode (negative electrode) to the anode (positive electrode).  The tube contains a glass screen (set diagonally to the electron beam) that fluoresces, showing the path of the cathode rays.

10 10Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi The rays are deflected by a magnet.

11 11Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi  J. J. Thomson observed several many properties of the cathod rays.  Cathode rays are streams of negatively charged particles ´electrons´  They are the same regardless of the identity of the cathode material

12 12Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Thomson constructed a cathode-ray tube From these measurements 1.76×10 8 C/g of electron Charge-to-mass ratio

13 13Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi R. Millikans oil-drop experiment The value of Charge = 1.602×10 8 C

14 14Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi The value of Charge of electron = 1.602×10 8 C Thomsons Charge-to-mass ratio = 1.76×10 8 C/g of electron Radioactivity spontaneous emission of radiation.

15 15Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Rutherford three types of radiation: alpha (  ), beta (  ), and gamma (  ). The paths of (  ) and (  ) radiation are bent by an electric field, although in opposite directions; (  ) radiation is unaffected by the field

16 16Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Gamma radiation is high-energy radiation similar to X-rays; it does not consist of particles and carries no charge. The Nuclear Model of the Atom He proposed that the atom consisted of a uniform positive sphere of matter in which the electrons were embedded like raisins in a pudding or seeds in a watermelon Rutherford

17 17Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Rutherford’s  -scattering experiment.

18 18Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi  most of the mass of each gold atom and all of its positive charge reside in a very small, extremely dense region that he called the nucleus.  most of the volume of an atom is empty space in which electrons move around the nucleus. Rutherford explained the results by postulating the nuclear model of the atom,

19 19Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Subsequent experiments led to the discovery of positive particles (protons) and neutral particles (neutrons) in the nucleus. Protons were discovered in 1919 by Rutherford and neutrons in 1932 by British scientist James Chadwick (1891–1972). Thus, the atom is composed of electrons, protons, and neutrons.

20 20Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2.3 THE MODERN VIEW OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE The charge of an electron is  × 10  19. That of a proton is equal in magnitude, × C. The quantity × 10  19 C is called the electronic charge Every atom has an equal number of electrons and protons, so atoms have no net electrical charge. Atoms have extremely small masses. The mass of the heaviest known atom, is approximately 4 × 10  22 g we use the atomic mass unit (amu) 1 amu = × 10  24 g

21 21Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Because it takes 1836 electrons to equal the mass of one proton or one neutron, the nucleus contains most of the mass of an atom. Most atoms have diameters between 1 × 10  10 m to 5 × 10  10 m The diameter of a chlorine atom, for example, is 200 pm, or 0.20 Å 1 Å = 1  10  10 m

22 22Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi

23 23Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Atomic Numbers, Mass Numbers, and Isotopes The atoms of each element have a characteristic number of protons. the number of protons in an atom of any particular element is called that element’s atomic number the mass number, is the number of protons plus neutrons in the atom

24 24Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Atoms with identical atomic numbers but different mass numbers (that is, same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons) are called isotopes of one another.

25 25Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi a) The superscript 197 is the mass number (protons + neutrons) gold has atomic number Au has 79 protons, 79 electrons, and = 118 neutrons b) The atomic number of strontium (listed on inside front cover) is 38. Thus, all atoms of this element have 38 protons and 38 electrons. The strontium-90 isotope has = 52 neutrons

26 26Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi (a) Magnesium has atomic number 12, so all atoms of magnesium contain 12 protons and 12 electrons. The numbers of neutrons in an atom of each isotope are therefore 12, 13, and 14, respectively

27 27Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2.4 ATOMIC WEIGHTS The Atomic Mass Scale The atomic mass unit is presently defined by assigning a mass of exactly 12 amu to an atom of the 12 C isotope of carbon. In these units, an 1 H atom has a mass of amu and an 16 O atom has a mass of amu.

28 28Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Atomic Weight Most elements occur in nature as mixtures of isotopes. We can determine the average atomic mass of an element, usually called the element’s atomic weight, by using the masses of its isotopes and their relative abundances:

31 31Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi

32 32Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2.6 MOLECULES AND MOLECULAR COMPOUNDS Only the noble-gas elements are normally found in nature as isolated atoms. Most matter is composed of molecules or ions. Molecules and Chemical Formulas Several elements are found in nature in molecular form—two or more of the same type of atom bound together. chemical formula A molecule made up of two atoms is called a diatomic molecule. O2O2

33 33Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi molecular compounds: Compounds composed of molecules contain more than one type of atom. Most molecular substances we will encounter contain only nonmetals. Molecular and Empirical Formulas Molecular Formulas Chemical formulas that indicate the actual numbers of atoms in a molecule. Molecular Formulas Chemical formulas that indicate the actual numbers of atoms in a molecule.

34 34Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Empirical Formulas Chemical formulas that give only the relative number of atoms of each type in a molecule. Empirical Formulas Chemical formulas that give only the relative number of atoms of each type in a molecule.  The subscripts in an empirical formula are always the smallest possible whole-number ratios.  For many substances, the molecular formula and the empirical formula are identical, as in the case of water, H 2 O.  Whenever we know the molecular formula of a compound, we can determine its empirical formula. The converse is not true, however.

35 35Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi empirical formula for glucose is CH 2 O. the empirical formula for nitrous oxide is the same as its molecular formula, N 2 O.

37 37Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi

38 38Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2.7 IONS AND IONIC COMPOUNDS If electrons are removed from or added to an atom, a charged particle called an ion is formed. An ion with a positive charge is a cation (pronounced CAT-ion); a negatively charged ion is an anion (AN-ion). consider the sodium atom, which has 11 protons and 11 electrons.

39 39Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Chlorine, with 17 protons and 17 electrons  In general, metal atoms tend to lose electrons to form cations and nonmetal atoms tend togain electrons to form anions.  Thus, ionic compounds tend to be composed of metals bonded with nonmetals, as in NaCl.

40 40Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi a) 48 Ti 3+ b) 32 S 2- Predicting Ionic Charges Many atoms gain or lose electrons to end up with the same number of electrons as the noble gas closest to them in the periodic table.

41 41Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi

42 42Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Predictable charges of some common ions.

43 43Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Ionic Compounds A compound made up of cations and anions. The ions in ionic compounds are arranged in three-dimensional structures, as for NaCl. Because there is no discrete “molecule” of NaCl, we are able to write only an empirical formula for this substance.

44 44Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi Ionic compounds are generally combinations of metals and nonmetals, as in NaCl. Molecular compounds are generally composed of nonmetals only, as in H 2 O.

45 45Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi We can write the empirical formula for an ionic compound if we know the charges of the ions. Chemical compounds are always electrically neutral.

46 46Dr. Said M. El-Kurdi 2.8 NAMING INORGANIC COMPOUNDS The system used in naming substances is called chemical nomenclature, from the Latin words nomen (name) and calare (to call). water (H 2 O) and ammonia (NH 3 ), do have traditional names (called common names). Names and Formulas of Ionic Compounds ionic compounds usually consist of metal ions combined with nonmetal ions. The metals form the cations, and the nonmetals form the anions.
