  1. Dalton's atomic theory
    matter composed of atoms, atoms are identical in mass, size, properties if of same element, atoms can't be subdivided, created, or destroyed, atoms combine to form chemical compounds, atoms are combined, separated, or rearranged
  2. definite proportions
    a chemical compund contains the same elements in exactly the same proportions by mass regardless of the size of the sample or source of compound
  3. multiple proportions
    if two or more different compounds are composed of the same 2 elements, the ratio of masses of the second element combined with a certain mass of the first element is always a ratio of small whole numbers
  4. law of conservation of mass
    mass can be neither created nor destroyed
  5. modern atomic theory
    atoms divisible into smaller particles, one element can have atoms with different masses
  6. cathode ray experiment
    electric current passed through vacuum; one side glowed, particles must be negatively charged
  7. isotopes
    same element, different atomic mass; neutrons
  8. relative mass
    atomic mass unit is 1/12 carbon atom
  9. atomic number
    number of protons
  10. average atomic mass
    weighted average of atomic masses of naturally occurring isotopes of an element
  11. atomic mass unit
    amu is 1/12 mass of carbon atom
  12. avogadro's number
    6.02*10^23; number of C-12 atoms in 12 grams
  13. convert moles to particles
    multiply by Avogadro's number
  14. convert moles to grams
    multiply moles by molar mass (which is also atomic mass)
  15. convert atoms to grams
    divide atoms by Avogadro's number; multiply by molar mass (atomic mass)
