CHAPTER 10 Chemical Quantities

Before We Begin…  We need to review some scientific notation.scientific notation  Scientific notation is a way of writing very large and very small numbers.

How to Write Numbers in Scientific Notation  Always written as a coefficient multiplied by 10 raised to a power. 3.5 x 10 34 coefficientpower

How to Multiply in Scientific Notation  To multiply numbers written in scientific notation you multiply the coefficients and add the powers. (2.35x10 14 ) x (3.25x10 -23 ) MultiplyAdd Answer = 7.64x10 -9

How to Divide in Scientific Notation  To divide numbers written in scientific notation you divide the coefficients and subtract the powers. (2.35x10 14 ) ÷ (3.25x10 -23 ) DivideSubtract Answer =7.2x10 36

The Mole: A Measurement of Matter Section 1

Measuring Matter  You often measure the amount of something by one of three different methods – by count, by mass, and by volume.

What Is a Mole?  Mole (mol) – 6.02x10 23 representative particles of that substance (SI unit for measuring the amount of something).  Avogadro’s number - 6.02x10 23 named after Amadeo Avogadro di Quarenga (1776-1856)  A mole of any substance contains Avogadro’s number of representative particles, or 6.02x10 23 representative particles.

The Mass of a Mole of an Element  The atomic mass of an element expressed in grams is the mass of a mole of the element.  Molar mass – the mass of a mole of an element.  Find the element on the periodic table and the mass that’s listed is the mass of one mole.

The Mass of a Mole of a Compound  To calculate the molar mass of a compound, find the number of grams of each element in one mole of the compound.  Then add the masses of the elements in the compound.

 How Big is a Mole How Big is a Mole

Mole-Mass and Mole-Volume Relationships Section 2

The Mole-Mass Relationship  Use the molar mass of an element or compound to convert between the mass of a substance and the moles of a substance.

The Mole-Volume Relationship  Avogadro’s hypothesis – states that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of particles.

 Standard temperature and pressure (STP) – means a temperature of 0°C and a pressure of 101.3kPa or 1 atmosphere (atm).

 At STP, 1 mole or 6.02x10 23 representative particles, of any gas occupies a volume of 22.4L  Molar volume – the 22.4L of a gas.

Percent Composition and Chemical Formulas Section 3

The Percent Composition of a Compound  Percent composition – the percent by mass of each element in the compound.  The percent by mass of an element in a compound is the number of grams of the element divided by the mass in grams of the compound, multiplied by 100%

Percent Composition from Mass Data  Can calculate by thinking part over a whole times 100%

Percent Composition as a Conversion Factor  Once you know the percent composition you can say that in a 100g sample you have that percent in grams of that element.

Example:  Propane is 81.8% carbon so in a 100g sample you have how many grams of carbon that you can use this as a conversion factor?

Empirical Formulas  Empirical formula – lowest whole-number ratio of the atoms of the elements in a compound.

 For example HO is an empirical formula for H 2 O 2 (peroxide).  Using percent compositions you can determine empirical formulas.

Molecular Formulas  The molecular formula of a compound is either the same as its experimentally determined empirical formula, or it is a simple whole-number multiple of its empirical formula.
