Chemistry notes 9/18/07 - Density of nucleus is such that a pea-sized sample of nuclear matter would weigh 250 million tons - Atoms that have the same number of protons, but different number of neutrons are isotopes o All atoms of a given element have the same number of protons - Almost all of the mass of an atom is contributed by the protons and neutrons in its nucleus o Proton and neutron each have a mass of approximately 1 amu - Metalloids, or semi-metals, are elements having some metal-like properties and some non-metal properties and lie along the interface between the metal & non- metal regions in the periodic table

Unformatted text preview: -Ionic bonding is where one atom transfers electrons to another atom and the resultant oppositely charged particles “stick together” o Positively charged ions (cations) and negatively charged ions (anions) o The oppositely charged ions tend to cluster, and stay, together and an ionic bond has been formed -Covalent bonds have the following forces o Repulsion between nuclei o Repulsion between electrons o Attraction between nuclei and electrons-Polyatomic ions are groups of covalently bonded atoms that will gain/lose electrons (as a whole) and could thus possess a non-zero charge-...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
