CHEM 001 Class 2 Class Notes January 16, 2008 C. Cecil Cuppett, Ph.D. Chapter 1: 1. The terms compound and molecule are almost the same. Molecules and compounds are a collection of at least two atoms that are bound together. In some cases, the substances are better described as ions instead of molecules (this will be explained later in the course). 2. Diatomic molecules have just two atoms bound together. Examples are these gases: O 2 , N 2 , Cl 2 , CO. 3. The molecular formula describes the exact ratio of the atoms in a molecule (compound). The subscripts show how many atoms of each type are in the molecule. For example, H 2 O (water), H 2 O 2 (hydrogen peroxide), C 6 H 12 O 6 (glucose), CO 2 (carbon dioxide), CH 4 (methane). 4. An important group of substances are colloids. These materials are not exactly solids, liquids or gases

Shaving foam is a gas finely dispersed in a liquid d. (See more examples of various types of colloids on page 13 of your text.) 5. Colloids may separate into the components that makeup the colloid in which case the colloid is not a true solution but actually would be a dispersion. In other cases the colloid is very stable and may be considered a type of solution. 6. Gases follow a relationship as follows: PV = nRT where P = pressure, V = volume and T = temperature. n and R are numerical constants usually....

    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.
