symbol. U-238 would be ?
U 92
atomic mass is weighed average of isotopes
valence orbitals
electrons in an element's outer-shell orbitals
any characteristic that allows us to recognize a particular type of matter and distinguish it from other types
atoms of the same element with different numbers of neutrons
Electron Capture
nucleus captures low energy electron combining it w/a proton to form a neutron; same mass #, subtract 1 from atomic #
amorphous solid
a solid whose molecular arrangement lacks a regular, long-range pattern.
the amount of heat
FORMULA: change in heat = H(products) - H(reactants)
______ in an atom hold everything together
Physical Properties
Properties that can be measured without changing identity and composition of the substance.
strong acids
HCl, HBr, HI, HClO4, HNO3, HIO4, H2SO4, HClO3
NO CLOthes Is BRitish HI CLothes 2SO4
standard enthalpy
the enthalpy change when all reactants and products are in their standard states (1 atm at 298 degrees K (25 degreesC)), deltaHdegrees, degrees to indicate standard-state conditions
surface tension
imbalance of attractive forces at the surface of a liquid that causes the surface to behave as if it had a thin film across it; resistance of a liquid to an increase in the surface area
a substance that speeds up a reaction without being consumed
Alpha-particle production
a common mode of decay for radio-active nuclides in which the mass number changes
different forms of an element in the same state
is the component of the solution that is present in the greatest amount.
the mass per unit volume of a substance
FORMULA: D = (mass) divided by (volume)
Physical properties...
don't change what the substance is (color)
Theoretical Yield
the amount of product that is calculated to form when all of the limiting reagent reacts, the amount actually produced is referred to as actual yield.
Binary compounds
2 elements per compond: all binary compounds end in -ide except H2O, NH3(ammonia) and CH4(methane)

constant h, value of 6.63 x 10^-34 joule-second (J-s)
graduated cylinder
is used to measure volumes of liquids. They come in various sizes.
Aqueous solution
a solution in which water is the dissolving medium or solvent
Entropy (ΔS)
measure of how the disorder of a system is changing
systematic error
an error that always occurs in the same direction.
Bronsted-Lowry model
proposes that an acid is a proton donor and a base is a proton acceptor
Double Replacement Reactions
Two compounds react and the cation in one compound replaced the cation in the second compound and vice versa
the state in which the rate of the forward reaction equals the rate of the reverse reaction
chemical equilibrium
Henderson Hassleback (Buffer solutions)
Weak acid and a base.
pH=pKa + log(base/acid)
law of conservation of mass
mass is neither created nor destroyed.
long term E storage thermal insulationfilling spacesbinding organs/tissues togetherprotection & cushioning
Main component of cell membranes
If the moles of gas stays the same
disorder stays practically constant

- binary
- charge it would have as a monatomic ion
