Part A Match each property to the appropriate subatomic particle. Drag each property into the correct bin. Hint 1. Describe neutrons Which of the following statements about neutrons is false? ANSWER: Hint 2. Describe protons Which of the following statements about protons is false? ANSWER: In an atom, all of the positive and negative charges are randomly distributed. In an atom, most of the mass and the positive charge are located in a small core within the atom called the nucleus. In an atom, negatively charged electrons are dispersed in the space surrounding the positively charged nucleus of an atom. In an atom, negatively charged electrons are small particles held within a positively charged sphere. A neutron has no electrical charge. The symbol of a neutron is n. The neutron is found in the nucleus of an atom. The neutron is positively charged.
Hint 3. Describe electrons Which of the following statements about electrons is false? Part B Sort the subatomic particles according to their masses. Drag each subatomic particle into the correct bin. Hint 1. Which subatomic particle has the smallest mass? Which of the three subatomic particles has the smallest mass? .
ANSWER: Correct The proton and neutron both have masses of about 1 , whereas the electron mass is only about . Elements, Their Properties, and The Periodic Table There are more than 100 chemical elements that are identified in nature. The chemical symbols of the elements are denoted by either one or two letters. For example, the element oxygen is denoted by the letter . If the symbol has two letters, the first letter is always capitalized and the second is lowercase. For example, the symbol for the element helium is . The periodic table is the tabular arrangement of all the chemical elements that have been identified. The elements are arranged according to their atomic numbers and denoted by their symbols. This arrangement places elements of similar properties next to each other in the table. For example, metals are located on the left-hand side and nonmetals are located on the right-hand side. Semimetals (metalloids) are placed between the metals and nonmetals, and have properties intermediate between metals and nonmetals.
