LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1. Define matter. What are elements? Which four elements comprise approximately 96% of living matter? 2. Be able to describe the structure of an atom in terms of its major subatomic particles (i.e. protons, neutrons, and electrons). How do these particles differ in terms of: charge, mass, and location within an atom? What is the atomic mass of an atom? What is the atomic number of an atom? How do the different elements differ from one another? What are isotopes? What are ions? 3. Compare the 1 st  and 2 nd  shells of an atom in terms of their orbitals, distance from the nucleus, and energy levels. 4. If you are provided with the atomic number of an atom you should be able to draw its electron configuration. 5. What is a mole (in chemistry)? How is the weight of a mole of an element calculated? How is the weight of a mole of a molecule or compound calculated? How many atoms would be
