The Correct Answer: They may damage or destroy molecules. Potassium (atomic number 19, mass number 40) and sodium (atomic number 11, mass number 23) have similar chemical properties and reactive behavior. This is because uncharged atoms of potassium and sodium _____. The Correct Answer: have different mass numbers and each has 1 electron in its outermost electron shell







Atomic chlorine has an atomic number of 17. It has _____ electrons in its third shell. The Correct Answer: 7 The chemical characteristics or reactivity of an element depend mostly on the _____. The Correct Answer: number of electrons in its outermost shell Some groups of elements react chemically in similar ways. For example, the chemistry of sodium and the chemistry of lithium are similar. The chemistry of chlorine and the chemistry of iodine are also similar. These



similarities in chemistry result when different elements have similar _____. The Correct Answer: numbers of outer-shell electrons 20. How many electrons would be present in the valence shell of a sulfur atom (atomic number 16, mass number 32)? The Correct Answer: 6 electrons For most atoms, a stable configuration of electrons is attained when the atom _____. The Correct Answer: has 8 electrons in its outermost shell An atom that normally has _____ in its outer shell would not tend to form chemical bonds with other atoms. The Correct Answer: 8 electrons A polar covalent bond is a bond that _____. The Correct Answer: has shared electrons pulled closer to the more electronegative atom A covalent bond is likely to be polar if _____. The Correct Answer: one of the atoms sharing electrons is much more electronegative When the proton number and electron number are unequal, the atom or molecule _____. The Correct Answer: is an ion A sodium atom has a mass number of 23. Its atomic number is 11. How many electrons does it have if it is not an ion? The Correct Answer: 11 Copper has an atomic number of 29 and a mass number of 64. What would result if an uncharged copper atom lost two electrons?
