Card Set Information
Matter was thought to be made from tiny indestructible building blocks
First proposed in early 1800's by John Dalton.
Dalton's Atomic Theory
The atom is the basic unit from which matter is constructed.
Protons, Neutrons and Electrons which make up the atom.
The compact core of an atom made up of Proton and Neutrons.
Mass of 1.6726 x 10-*24 G
Mass of 1.0073 AMU
Location in Nucleus
Same number of electrons
Property is to attract electrons closer
Mass of 1.6750 x 10-*24
Mass of 1.0087 AMU
Location in Necleus
Mass of 9.110 x-*28
Mass of 5.486 x 10-*4 AMU
Location outside of Nucleus
Same number of Protons
Atomic Mass Unit
A substance that contains only one type of atom.
A one or two letter abbreviation of the element name
The number of protons that an atom has in its nucleus
Also same number of electrons
The total number of Protons and Neutrons in the nucleus of an atom
To specify the number of Protons and Neutrons in the nucleus of a particular atom
Atoms of an element that have different numbers of Neutrons
All elements have more than one isotope and the isotopes of an element are usually not present in nature in equal amounts.
The average mass of the atoms of an element, as it is found in nature.
~50% 79/35Br (mass=78.92 amu) and ~50% 81/35Br (mass=80.92 amu).
The Atomic Weight is 79.91 amu, which falls in between

Elements in the same horizontal row of the Periodic Table
"Period" relates to the periodic (regular) changes that take place in the properties of elements as you move through them in order of atomic number
H and He make up the frist period
Li, Be, B, C, N, O, F, and Ne are the second period
When metals, semi-metals and nonmetals change in the same period
In 3rd period - Na, Mg, and Al are metals then moving to Si which is semi-metal then to P, S, Cl, and Ar which are Nonmetals.
Generally decreases when moving left to right from a period
Increase when moving down a group
More Protons means electrons are attracted closer to the center, decreasing in size
Going down, we begin getting more shells of electrons, increasing in size.
Used when a very large number of atom are involved in experiments
One mole of something contains 6.02 x 10*23 items
6.02 x 10*23
Is equal to the number of atoms in exactly 12 grams of pure carbon-12
12.01 g C
The mass (in grams) of one mole of the atoms of an element
Numerically equal to the atomic weight of the elements (in amu).
Example - AW of Li is 6.94 amu and MolMass of Li is 6.94 g/mol.
Most stable electron arrangement
When electrons are in energy levels as near as possible to the nucleus
An orbit farther from the nucleus
When ground state hydrogen atom absorbs energy it's electrons is pushed to
Type of energy that travels as waves
Metals and Non-metals and Chemical Property
Metals - Lose an electron during chemical property
Nonmetals - Gain electron during chemical property

Electron Dot Structure
Shows the number of valence electrons a atom carries
What group of elements cannot lose or gain electrons?
Inert Gases - 8A - very stable and lazy
Substance that contains only one type of atom
