Part B Match the chemical symbol to the element. Drag each item to the appropriate bin. Hint 1. How to approach the problem Many chemical symbols are based on the English name of the element. For example, the chemical symbol for oxygen is . Some elements, however, have symbols based on their Latin or Greek names. For example, the symbol for mercury is , from the Latin hydrargyrum . You should memorize the chemical symbols for common elements. ANSWER: Atomic Mass = 28.09 amu O Cu Mg Li Zn O Hg magnesium,lithium,zinc Mg, Li, Zn = O Hg
Correct Part C Match the atomic number to the element. Drag each item to the appropriate bin. Hint 1. How to approach the problem Each element has a unique atomic number, which is equal to the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom. The periodic table of elements is arranged by the atomic number of the elements. For a given element, first determine the element symbol that corresponds to the element name given. Then look above the symbol in the periodic table to find the atomic number. For example, carbon has an atomic number of 6. Hint 2. Identify the chemical symbol of the elements Match the chemical symbol to the element. Drag each item to the appropriate bin. ANSWER:
ANSWER: Correct Part D Identify the atomic number and the chemical symbol for lead, silver, and gold. Drag each item to the appropriate bin. Hint 1. How to approach the problem Many chemical symbols are based on the English name of the element. For example, the chemical symbol for oxygen is . Some elements, however, have symbols based on their Latin or Greek names. For example, the symbol for mercury is , from the Latin hydrargyrum . You should memorize the chemical symbols for common elements. Once you have identified the chemical symbol for each element, use the periodic table to determine the atomic number of each element. Hint 2. Identify the chemical symbol of the elements Match the chemical symbol to the element. O Hg
Drag each item to the appropriate blank. ANSWER: Correct ANSWER: Correct The chemical symbol for iron, , comes from the Latin term ferrum . Isotopes Learning Goal: To understand isotope notation and how to use it to determine the number of protons and neutrons and the mass number for atoms. Atoms with the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons are called isotopes . Some elements only have one naturally occurring isotope, while others such as carbon have two or more. In a naturally occurring sample, isotopes of each element are present in a certain percentage amount called the percent natural abundance . The mass number of an isotope is the sum of the number of protons and the number of neutrons for a particular isotope and is symbolized by . There are several different types of isotope notation. For example, a carbon isotope that has an atomic number of 6 and a mass number of 13 could be symbolized in any of the following ways: , carbon-13, or -13. Part A Help Reset Ar Fe 1. Silver: Ag 2. Lead: Pb 3. Gold: Au Fe A A = number of protons + number of neutrons C 13 6 C X A
