History 400 -370 BC - Democritus thought that there must be atoms, “invisible particles”. 384-322 BC – Aristotle refused this theory. 1700 – Isaac Newton again favored the idea of smaller invisible particles. 1800 – John Dalton formed the atomic theory.
Dalton’s Atomic Theory Elements composed of small particles called atoms. All atoms of the same element are identical in physical properties but different from atoms of other elements. Atoms of one element can not change into atoms of different elements with chemical reactions. Compounds are composed of atoms of different elements and are consistent in number and type of elements.
Dalton’s Atomic Theory Vocabulary Atom – the smallest particle of an element that retains the chemical identity of the element. Compound – contains atoms of two or more elements. Conservation of matter – atoms can neither be created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction.
Continuing History 1897 – J. J. Thomson – using a cathode ray determined the presence of negative particles, electrons, and the “plum pudding” model. 1911 –Ernest Rutherford – using alpha particles through gold foil determined electrons were not evenly spaced and determined the presence of a nucleus. 1919 – Rutherford- determined the presence of protons. 1932 – James Chadwick – determined the presence of neutrons.

Atomic Number The number of protons in an atom of an element. Each element has a different atomic number or number of protons. Each element has no charge. Each element has the same number of electrons as protons to keep neutral.
Periodic Table of Elements 1750 only 17 elements 1800 – 31 elements 1865 – 63 elements Today – 117 elements Antoine Lavoisier – categorized elements into metals, nonmetals, gases, and earths Dmitri Mendeleev (Russia)- 1865 – categorized 63 elements according to atomic weight along with Lothar Meyer (Germany).
Modeled chart of elements after the solitaire card game. Arranged the elements into rows in the order of increasing mass so that elements with similar properties were in the same column like suits in the card game. Within columns, atomic masses increased from top to bottom leading to the periodic table. Mendeleev
Since many elements were still undiscovered, he left gaps in the chart where he thought the undiscovered elements should be. The structure of the table lead to the prediction and discovery of gallium which had similar properties as aluminum. 1913 Rutherford’s nuclear model of the atom lead to atomic numbers, verification of Mendeleev’s table.
Periodic Table Organized by increasing atomic number. Basic Info: 17 = atomic number Cl = symbol 35.453 = atomic mass 17 Cl 35.453
Organization Table is configured into: Periods – rows on the periodic table. Groups – columns on the table with elements in the same group having similar physical properties. Further organized into: Metals Metalloids Nonmetals
Organization Metals good conductors of heat and electricity Malleable (hammered into thin sheets) Ductile (drawn into thin wires) Lustrous (shiny) Nonmetals Poor conductors Mostly gases If metal then brittle Metalloid Demonstrate both metal and nonmetal properties
Organization Groups Group 1 – Alkali metals Group 2 – Alkaline earth metals Group 7 – Halogens Group 8 – Noble gases Group B – Transition metals
Organization Alkali metals – very reactive with water and oxygen. They have low densities and melting points. They all have 1 valence electron so readily give away 1 electron in s orbital. Ex. Sodium and potassium react violently with water such that they will react with the water in human skin igniting the hydrogen molecules and burn the skin.
Organization Alkaline earth metals – have 2 valence electrons. Differences in reactivity along these elements is shown by the ways they react with water. More dense and higher melting temperatures Ex. Calcium, strontium and barium react easily with water. Magnesium reacts with hot water. Beryllium has no reaction in water.
Organization Halogens – highly reactive with metals. They all have 7 valence electrons. Nobel gases – mostly nonreactive colorless, odorless gas that give off different colors when excited. Ex. Helium-pink Neon-orange/red Argon-lavender Krypton-white Xenon-blue
Atomic & Ionic Radii Trends Columns of periodic table – radius increases from top to bottom. Periods of periodic table – radius decreases from left to right. Cations have smaller radii than parent elements. Anions have larger radii than parent elements.
Molecule Assembly of two or more atoms tightly bound together with no net charge. Chemical formula - representation of the number and type of elements in a compound. H 2 O, CO 2, CH 4 Molecular formula– actual chemical formula of a molecule indicating the actual number of molecules of each atom Empirical formula – simplified formula of a molecule indicating the smallest ratio of atoms of elements.
Writing Chemical Formulas 1. Each atom (element) is represented by it symbol. 2. The number of atoms of each element is represented by a subscript. 3. When the number of atoms is 1 then the subscript is not written and understood to be one.
Chemical Formulas Examples of formulas Ca 3 (PO 4 ) 3 Al(NO 3 ) 3 H 2 SO 4 3CO 2
Ions A charged entity produced by taking a neutral atom and adding or removing one or more electrons. Cation-positively charged particle due to the removal of an electron. K +, Mg 2+ Anion-negatively charged particle due to the acceptance of an electron (tend to be nonmetals). Cl -, S 2-
How many electrons are contained in each of the following ions? Ba 2+ P 3- Sn 2+ Cl - Ions
There must be both positive ions (cations) and negative ions (anions) present. The numbers of cations and anions must have a net charge of zero or the sum of the oxidation numbers is zero. Cation is first then the anion. Writing Formulas
Ex. Na and Cl Na + Cl - → NaCl Charge: +1 Charge: -1 Net = 0 Oxidation number = charge Ex. Mg and Cl Mg 2+ Cl - Cl - → MgCl 2 Charge: +2 2 x (-1) net =0 Writing Formulas
Calcium and chlorine Sodium and sulfur Lithium and nitrogen Phosphorus and Calcium Barium and oxygen Sulfur and Aluminum Potassium and phosphorus Writing Formulas
Ionic Compound – a molecule that contains both a metal and a nonmetallic elements. NaCl MgCl 2 Molecular Compound – a molecule that contains only nonmetals. CO 2 CH 4 Polyatomic ions – atoms joined as a molecule with a charge.
Writing Formulas Iron (II) and chlorine Cooper (I) and fluorine Calcium and hydroxide Chromium (II) and peroxide Hydrogen and oxygen Hydrogen and phosphate
Nomenclature Naming cations: Metals with single charge – cation is metal name with “ion” added Metal with multiple charge – cation is metal name with charge indicated by Roman numeral and “ion” added. Polyatomic – nonmetal name with “ium” replacing end.
Nomenclature Naming anions: Monatomic – element name with end replaced with “ide”. Polyatomic – With oxygen (oxyanion)– element name with end replaced with “ate”. With hydrogen & oxyanion – polyatomic name prefix “hydrogen” added.
Nomenclature Naming ionic compounds: Cation is named first using cation name then anion name. Naming molecular compounds: 1. Name element further to left first. 2. If same group, name higher atomic number first. 3. Anion is named using anion name (ide) 4. Atoms are indicated by following prefixes: One – monosix - hexa Two – diseven - hepta Three – trieight - octa Four – teteranine - nona Five - pentaten - deca
Nomenclature Naming acids: If anion name ends in “ide” change to “ic” and add “hydrogen” to name. These are molecules with no oxygen. If anion name ends in “ate” change to “ic” and add “acid”. If anion name ends in “ite” change to “ous” and add “acid”.
