Why Are Chemical Names & Formulas Important? What is DHMO??? Formula: H 2 O Accepted Chemical Name (IUPAC): Water Systematic Names (synonyms): Dihydrogen Monoxide, Dyhydrogen oxide, Hydroxyl Acid, Hydrogen Hydroxide
Compounds Combinations of two or more atoms that are held together by “bonds” between the atoms. [http://www.chm.davidson.edu/student/che105/femohammed/chem/Images/nacl.jpg]
Compounds Chemical formulas are used to show what combinations of atoms exist in a compound. [http://wps.prenhall.com/wps/media/objects/476/488316/Instructor_Resources/Chapter_05/FG05_06-01un.JPG]
Compounds Each compound has it’s own specific properties that may not always be like other similar compounds. Carbon Monoxide vs. Carbon Dioxide [http://wps.prenhall.com/wps/media/objects/476/488316/Instructor_Resources/Chapter_05/FG05_06-02a.JPG]
Ions These are formed when an atom gains or loses electrons They have the same number of electrons as a noble gas (octet rule!) Fluorine p + = 9 e - = 9 Fluoride Ion p + = 9 e - = 10 [http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/img/gcsechem_97.gif]
Ions The number of electrons gained or lost is written as the oxidation number or charge of the ion. 9 protons -10 electrons -1 charge or F -1 [http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/img/gcsechem_97.gif]
Ions Is there a pattern to the ions? +1+2 +3 No true pattern -3 -2 No compounds or ions!
Ions Example: How many p +, n, e - are there in Ca +2 ? Protons = 20 Neutrons = 20 Electrons = 18
Ions Example: How many p +, n, e - are there in P -3 ? Protons = 15 Neutrons = 16 Electrons = 18
