Bohr made significant contributions to the atom. He understood the line spectra-- thereason why only certain wavelengths are emitted when atoms jump down levels.
Solutions that resist changes in their pH, even when small amounts of acid or base areadded.Back totop.
Substance that speeds up a chemical process without actually changing the products of reaction
Electrode where electrons are gained (reduction) in redox reactions.
Ion with a positive charge.
In a Lewis structure, usually the atom that is the most electronegative.
Describes an object's ability to repel or attract other objects. Protons have positivecharges while electrons have negative charges. Like charges repel each other whileopposite charges, such as protons and electrons, attract one another.
Processes or events that have altered the fundamental structure of something.
An expression of a fundamental change in the chemical substances.
A mathmatical term which says that if you operated on any two real numbers A and Bwith +,-,* or /, you get a real number
Properties of a solution that depend only on the number of particles dissolved in it, notthe properties of the particles themselves. The main colligative properties addressed atthis web site are boiling point elevation and freezing point depression.
When substances combine with oxygen and release energy.
A math property which states: A+B=B+A and A*B=B*A
Two or more atoms joined together chemically, with covalent or ionic bonds.
The amount of substance in a specified space.
A substance which can lose a H
ion to form a base.
A substance which can gain a H
ion to form an acid.
