  3. Subscript
    • A number that is written  a little below of text. Shows the number of particular element in a chemical formula.
  4. coefficient
    The number in front of some chemical formulas. An example  would be the 3 in 3 NaCl
  5. Compound

  6. chemical formula
    • shows the kind and number of ataoms in a formula
  7. electron cloud

  8. electron dot diagram
    • symbol for the element surrounded by as many dots as there are electrons in its outer level
  9. energy levels
    • different areas in the electron cloud where an electron can be found
  10. Ion
    • an atom that is no longer neutral because it has gained or lost an electron
  11. chemical bond
