1 Atoms and the Periodic Table Chapter 17 Mrs. Chilton

2 Atoms Elements are made of particles called atoms Atoms are the smallest pieces of matter that contain all the properties of a specific element Each element contains only one type of atom

3 Essential Question How do we know what the atom looks like when no one has ever seen it?

4 Inside the Atom Atoms are made up of smaller particles These particles are found in different regions of the atom

5 Protons Positively charged particles found in nucleus of atom Have an electrical charge of +1 Mass of 1 a.m.u. Composed of quarks

6 Neutrons Neutral particles found in nucleus of atom Have no electrical charge Mass of 1 a.m.u. Composed of quarks

7 Nucleus The nucleus is the positively charged dense core in the center of the atom Contains 99.9% of mass of atom Houses protons and neutrons

8 Electrons Negatively charged particles found in electron cloud Have an electrical charge of -1 Constantly moving around outside nucleus Have essentially no mass

9 Electron Cloud Region around nucleus Houses electrons

12 Atomic Models Have been revised many times to explain new discoveries Democritus (4 th century B.C.) thought the atom could not be split Theory was modified when subatomic particles were discovered

13 Newer Models Bohrs Model (1913) revised earlier thoughts Showed electrons moving in paths like planets Revised in 1925 Now electrons in cloud

14 Valence Electrons Electrons in the outermost energy level of an electron are called valence electrons These are the electrons furthest from the nucleus

15 Symbols Elements are listed by their chemical symbols Symbols are usually either one capital letter like C for Carbon, or one capital and one lowercase letter like Ne for Neon

16 Periodic Table The periodic table gives much information we need to learn more about the atom of each element

17 Atomic Number Atomic number = # of protons in an atom Whole number shown on periodic table Periodic table is arranged by atomic number

18 Atomic Mass The average atomic mass is the number at the bottom of this square Found by averaging the natural abundances of its isotopes Mass # = # p + + # n 0
