  9. True or False: Metals form positibely-charged ions by gaining electrons.
  10. Describe the make up of an atom.
    Th nucleus contains protons and neutrons in a heavy, dense positive core that contains the mass of the atom. Outside the nucleus, atoms orbit in defined orbits in the electron shells.
  11. Describe the difference between a Bohr-Rutherford diagrams and Lewis Dot Diagrams.
    Bohr-Rutherford diagrams visually show the make-up of the nucleus, and every electron orbit outside. A Lewis Dot diagram uses the symbol for the element, surronding by the valence shell only.
  12. What are the differenes between metals and non-metals?
    • Metals are solid, non-metals are solid/liquid/gas
    • Metals are conductors, non-metals are insulators
    • Metals are shiny, non-metals are dull
    • Metals have extra valence electrons, non-metals don't have enough
  13. Describe how chemical reactivity for elements works in terms of valence electrons.
    Physical and chemical properties are directly related to the number of valence electrons. Elements with the same number of valence electrons will react basically the same. Depending on how far the valence electron is from the nucleus (what electron shell), it becomes more and more reactive. The less electrons an element needs to lose/gain makes it more reactive.
  14. What is an ion?
    An atom that has gained or lost electrons.
  15. What is a cation?
    An atom that once had 1-3 electrons, but lost them to form a positive ion.
  16. What is an anion?
    An atom that once had 5-7 valence electrons, but gained more to form a negative ion.
  17. What is a positive ion and a negative ion called?
    • Positive Ion - cation
    • Negative Ion - anion
  18. Explain how ionic compounds form.
    • Metals commonly lose electrons to become cations. Non-metals commonly gain electrons to become anion.
    • These two opposites attract, and electrons are transferred between the two. A compound is formed.
  19. What happens if you dissolve an ionic compound?
    It will dissociate into its ions, and be able to conduct electricity.

    Normally if it is a gaseous binary compound. If it is in its aqueos acid name, the prefix "hydro" is used, with the ending changed from "ide" to "ic". eg. hydrogen fluoride -> hydrofluoric

    A synthesis reaction that involves burning a carbon-based fuel (ex. hydrocarbons) with oxygen. Combustion is either complete or incomplete.
  52. What is a complete combustion reaction?
    A reaction where there is excess oxygen, therefore all the fuel is used. The only products are carbon dioxide and water. eg. C3H8 + 5O2 -> 3CO2 + 4H2O

    A reaction where there is limited oxygen, therefore there is not enough to completely burn the fuel. The products are water, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and solid carbon particles (soot). eg. 2C3H8 + 7O2 -> 2CO2 + 8H2O + 2CO + 2C
  54. What is the pH scale?
    A scale that measures how acidic or basic a solution is, ranging from 0 - 14. This scale is logarithmic, meaning that a difference of 1 pH is a 10-fold difference in acid concentration.
  55. What determines a solution's pH level?
    The concentration of H+ or OH- ions. A strong acid will have a high concentration of hydrogen ions, and a low pH level. Bases are the opposite. A solution with a pH of 7 is neutral because the ion concentrations are equal and balance each other out.
