Name: __Janelle Jose_____________ Date: __1/22/09______ Lecture Activity 2.2 Handout—Atomic Love Connection Choose one of the following elements: carbon magnesium hydrogen nitrogen chlorine calcium oxygen sodium phosphorus sulfur potassium bromine 1. Determine the atomic symbol: Sodium (Na) 2. Use the periodic table to determine the atomic number: 11 3. Describe how you will determine if the atoms of your element are inert or reactive. You can identify reactive elements as they are in group I of the periodic table and are called alkali metals. It’s also a atom without a full valence shell. Sodium also only needs to get rid of one valence electron to take part in a reaction. 4. Use the characteristics of your atom to write a “personal ad” for it. Be creative! See the example below as a

Unformatted text preview: guide for the information you should include. Example: Fluorine (F); atomic number = 9 Personal ad: Single fluorine atom seeking another kind atom willing to donate one electron to add stability to my life. I currently have seven electrons in my outer shell and am willing to form an ionic bind with any atom who answers this ad. Sodium (Na); atomic number = 11 Personal ad: A soft, light, extremely malleable silver-white metallic element that reacts explosively with water is seeking an electronegative atom to form an ionic bond. My name is sodium, I have 11 electrons, and I have 1 electron in my outermost orbit which is easily transferable to a electronegative atom. Looking forward to a response.
