2 What is a solution?A solution is a mixture where the particles making it up are very small and evenly dispersed throughout the mixtureThey are made up into two parts:The SoluteThe Solvent
3 What is a Solute? A solute is the substance to be dissolved. This is normally a solid examples can be salt, sugar, Kool aid, or Gator Aid.
4 What is a Solvent?The solvent is what does the dissolving. It is the material that breaks the solute down.Water is known as the universal solvent.
5 What is an atom?An atom is a particle that is composed of protons, neutrons, and electrons.They are the building blocks of all matter.
6 Electron A negatively charged particle Located in the shells surrounding the nucleusThese shells are also called orbits or orbital shellsIf you have more electrons then protons within an atom then it is a negatively charged atom
7 Proton A positively charged particle Located in the nucleus along with the neutronsIf you have more protons then electrons within an atom then it is a positively charged atom
8 Neutron A neutrally charged particle Located within the nucleus along with the protons
9 NucleusThe center portion of an atom where protons and neutrons are located
10 Shell The surrounding portion of an atom going around the nucleus These are where the electrons are located.
