Brodbelt CH301 Homework 4 Chapter 13-I Due October 2 at 11:00 pm 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points What characteristics do atoms of carbon-12, carbon-13, and carbon-14 have in common? 1. same mass 2. same number of neutrons and protons 3. same number of neutrons and electrons 4. same number of electrons 5. same number of protons 6. same number of protons and electrons correct 7. same number of neutrons Explanation: 12 C, 13 C, and 14 C all have 6 protons and 6 electrons. 12 C has 6 neutrons, 13 C has 7 neutrons, and 14 C has 8 neutrons. 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The chemistry of an element is largely deter- mined by 1. its number of total electrons. 2. its valence electrons. correct 3. its mass. 4. its core electrons. 5. its relative abundance. Explanation: The chemistry of an element is largely de- termined by its valence electrons. 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The oxygen 1- anion O- has how many total electrons and how many valence electrons? 1. 7; 6 2. 9; 7 correct 3. 8; 6 4. 7; 5 5. 8; 9 6. 9; 9 7. 8; 7 8. 8; 8 9. 9; 8 Explanation: A standard oxygen atom has 8 total elec- trons. The negative charge indicates that the atom has gained one more electron giving the ion 9 total electrons. The valence electrons are those in the out- ermost s and p orbitals. For oxygen, this would be in the second principal level where it has 2 s electrons and 5 p electrons, so O- has 7 electrons in its valence. 004 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Describe the Lewis dot structure for Cl + . 1. three pairs of electrons, one lone electron 2. two pairs of electrons, two lone electrons correct 3. two pairs of electrons, one lone electron 4. two pairs of electrons, three lone elec- trons 5. three pairs of electrons Hou, Taylor Homework 4 Due: Oct 2 2007, 11:00 pm Inst: Brodbelt 2 6. one pair of electrons, two lone electrons 7. one pair of electrons, three lone electrons Explanation: Cl + has lost an electron giving it a total of 6 valence electrons. Two are paired as they6 valence electrons....
