Part A Identify the chemical symbols corresponding to each element. Drag the appropriate labels to their respective targets. Hint 1. What a chemical symbol is A chemical symbol is shorthand for the name of an element. It uniquely identifies the element. The chemical symbol may be either one or two letters. If the symbol is two letters, the first letter is capitalized and the second is lowercased. For example, the chemical symbol for sulfur is , and the symbol for silicon is . In some cases, the chemical symbol is derived from the Latin or Greek name of the element. For example, the symbol of gold, , is derived from its Latin name, aurum , meaning “shining dawn.” Aluminum,Antimony,Rado 53,51,11 Typesetting math: 100%
Hint 2. Identify the Latin name of the elements
Complete the following statements to identify the Latin names of the elements. Match the words in the left column to the appropriate blanks in the sentences on the right. Make certain each sentence is complete before submitting your answer. ANSWER: ANSWER: Correct Once you know the symbols for the elements, it is easier to navigate the periodic table and write chemical equations and formulae. Each element has a unique symbol that is recognized throughout the scientific world. The chemical symbols are the alphabet of the universal language of chemistry. Part B A chemist classifying five elements determines the following: Element Property : Sulfur Soft yellow solid : Silver Shiny solid at room temperature that is also a good conductor of heat and electricity : Silicon Semiconductor Help Reset 1. The Latin name for lead is plumbum . 2. The Latin name for antimony is stibium . 3. The Latin name for sodium is natrium . Help Reset C Pb At Sb Na S Al A Typesetting math: 100%
: Neon Inert gas at room temperature : Mercury Silvery liquid that is used in thermometers and fluorescent lights Use these properties to classify the substances as metals, metalloids (semimetals), or nonmetals. Drag the appropriate elements to their respective bins. Hint 1. The characteristics of metals, nonmetals, and metalloids (semimetals) Metals are generally solids at room temperature with the exception of mercury , which is liquid at room temperature. Metals have a lustrous (or shiny) appearance and are good conductors of heat and electricity. Nonmetals on the other hand are gases or pale, brittle, or soft solids that are bad conductors of heat and electricity. Metalloids (semimetals) can be induced to conduct electricity to a small extent and thus are known as semiconductors . ANSWER: Correct Metals are always on the left-hand side of the periodic table, and nonmetals are on the right-hand side. Metalloids (semimetals) are placed in between these two groups.
