Power
Accuracy
 Closeness of a measurement to the true value.
Precision
 Closeness or agreement of 2 or more measurements of the same thing.
 Example: you measure the mass of a substance 4 times with the same balance and record: 110 g,
109 g, 111 g, 110 g. Are these measurements precise? Answer is yes.
Accuracy and precision
 Can be one but not the other
 The goal in chemistry is to be both.
Least count
 Smallest unit a measuring device is divided into.
 Expressed as a numerical value of a unit.
 Example: A meter stick
 100 divisions (cm)
 Each cm divided 10 more times (mm)
 Least count: 1/1000 of a meter
 1 millimeter
Measuring volume
 Volume of a liquid is read from the bottom of the meniscus.
Sig Figs
 The significant figures of a measurement of calculation consists of all digits known with
certainty plus one estimated (or uncertain) digit.
 e.g. 10.7834 is accurate to five places (10.7834)
 The sixth place (0.0004) is the estimated digit (10.7834)
Sig Fig Rules
How do we know the number of sig figs?
4 Rules
1. All nonzero numbers are significant
 25 mL has two sig figs
2. Middle zeros are always significant
 40.7 L has three sig figs
 87009 km has five sig figs
3. Leading zeros are never significant
 0.009587 m has four sig figs
 0.0009 kg has one sig fig
4. Trailing zeros are significant if there’s a decimal place
 85.00 g has four sig figs
 9.070000000 has ten sig figs
 2000 m has one sig fig
 A simplified rule for determining sig figs is to remember Dot Right, Not Left
Sig Fig Rules – Dot Right, Not Left
 If there is a decimal point (dot):
 Count from left to right starting with the first nonzero number and counting the
remaining digits.
 If there is no decimal point (not):
 Count from the right to left starting with the first nonzero number and counting the
remaining digits.
Sig Figs – Multiplication & Division
 Round the calculated result to the same number of sig figs as the measurement with the least
number of sig figs.
 Example: (12.257)(1.162) = 14.24
Sig Figs – Addition and Subtraction
 Round the calculated result to the same decimal place as the measurement with the smallest
number of digits to the right of the decimal point.
 Example: 3.95 + 2.879 + 213.6 = 220.4
 Example #2: 2000 + 50 = 2000
Sig Figs & Scientific Notation
 Writing a result in scientific notation is a good way to report the desired number of sig figs.
 When counting sig figs for numbers written in scientific notation, consider just the mantissa as
significant (not the power).
Sig Figs
 If a sequence of calculations is involved, round when changing types of functions.
 Exact values have no uncertainty, and thus unlimited significant figures.
 Two categories of exact values in chemistry
1. Count values – value determined by counting.
2. Conversion factors – value used for conversion calculations.
Quiz! Variables
 Independent –The variable you change in an experiment.
 Dependent – Changes in response to the independent variable.
 Variables there to show what’s missing in an equation.
Quiz! Control/constants
 The unchanged independent variable for the purpose of comparison.
Dimensional analysis
 One way of handling the way of conversions.
 Example: If a dozen eggs cost \$1.79, what is the cost of one egg?
 1.79/12
 Example 2: How many grams are in 1489?
 1489/1000
 Convert 1000 cm

Density
 Density is a ratio of mass to volume. Density = mass/volume or d=m/v
 Expressed as g/cm
3

 Physical property
 Can be used to identify matter because density of a given substance is the same for all samples.
 Density is the measure of the “compactness” of a material.
 The proximity of like atoms or molecules.
 More than just the “heaviness” of a substance, density includes how much space an object takes
up!!
 All substances have density including liquids, solids, and gases.
Liquids
 The more dissolved solids in a solution, the more dense (such as ocean water)
 Cold water in a lake sinks (this creates a constant mixing of water, nutrients, and other
substance). Warm water in a lake floats (less dense).
Factors affecting density
 Temperature
 Pressure
 Dissolved solids
 Concentration and kinds of substances
What’s going to be on the test
 Conversion; centi, mili, kilo, Celcius to Kelvin.
 Decimals
 Scientific notation
 Significant Figures
 Density
The Science of Chemistry – Matter
 Anything that has volume (occupies space) and has mass (quantity of matter in that object)
 Mass is different from weight.
 Weight – is the force produced by gravity acting on mass.
 Physical state is a basic property.
 3 classical states:
 Solid
 Liquid
 Gas
Non-classical states of matter
 Plasmas
 Quark-gluon plasma
 Liquid crystal
 Superfluids
 Bose-Einstein condensates
 Fermionic condensates
States of matter
 Solids: Fixed shape and fixed volume.
 Liquid: No fixed shape – shape of container and fixed volume.
 Gases: No fixed shape – shape of container and no fixed volume – volume of container.
 Needs heat to go between the three. Solid to liquid needs heat and liquid to gas also needs heat.
State Changes
 Melting – Solid to liquid.
 Freezing – Liquid to solid.
 Vaporization – Liquid to gas.
 Condensation – Gas to liquid.
 Sublimation – Solid to gas.
 Deposition – Gas to liquid.
Superfluids
 Liquid that flows uncontrollably – as viscosity = 0. No resistance to flow.
 Can flow up the sides of a beaker.
 Exact same temperature throughout the liquid; thermal conductivity is infinite.
Supercritical Fluids
 No specific phase exists
 Temperature is great enough to be gas
 Pressure is great enough to be liquid.
 Moves through solids like a gas.
 Dissolves things like a liquid.
Nature of matter
 All matter is composed of atoms.
 Atoms come in 116 basic types called elements.
 A molecule consists of 2 or more elements (atoms) in a definite ratio.
 A molecule can be made of the same types of atoms or different types.
 A compound is composed of 2 or more different elements bonded together.
 Most elements can exist as single atoms.
 There are a few exceptions known as diatomic molecules (or diatomic gases)
 Always exist as two atoms bonded when in elemental form
 The 7 diatomic gases are hydrogen (H

Mixtures
 Substances that have a variable composition – contain more than one pure substance.
 At the molecular level, contains compounds that do no interact chemically.
 Mixtures are like a bowl of vegetable soup – made of many different vegetables, but the
composition of each vegetable remains the same.
Types of Mixtures
 Homogeneous mixture – is the same throughout.
 Solution – 1 substance dissolves in another
 Colloid – small particles dispersed through another substance that do not settle out.
 Heterogeneous mixture – is not the same throughout.
 Suspension – Large particles dispersed in another substance that can settle out or be
separated by filtration.

Properties of matter
 Physical property – property that can be measured without changing its chemical nature (e.g.
odor, appearance, density, boiling point)
 Chemical property – property that is observed when matter reacts (e.g. flammability, toxicity,
reactivity)
 What about solubility? Some say it’s a physical property and some say it’s a chemical property.
There’s a debate on it.
Changes of Matter
 Physical Changes affect only physical properties, the substance itself does not change.
 e.g. water freezing
 Chemical Changes involve one or more substances changing into new substances.
 e.g. iron turning to rust
Chemical Changes
 Evidence that a chemical change has occurred is easily observed and generally fits into one of
the following categories:
 The evolution of a gas or odor
 The formation of a precipitate (a solid)
 The evolution or absorption of heat
 Exothermic – Heat released (hot)
 Endothermic – Heat absorbed (cold)
 The emission of light (Mr. Von Someren lighted a cheese stick on fire and ate it.)
 A color change
Energy
 Energy: the potential or capacity to move matter.
 Types of energy:
 Kinetic Energy: the energy of matter in motion
 Potential Energy: the energy of matter with the potential for motion
 Chemical Potential Energy: the energy released from breaking or making
chemical bonds in molecules.
 Forms of energy:
 Chemical
 Mechanical
 Electrical
 Heat

Heat energy
 Heat: The form of energy that flows from one object to another because of temperature
differences between the two.

Atomic Theory
Democritus
 Democritus (200 B.C.) – Idea of the atom is credited with Leucippus and particularly, his teacher,
Democritus around 400 BC.
 Says all matter is made of atoms
 Physically indivisible
 Always have been and always will be in motion
 Empty space between atoms.
 There are an infinite number and kind of atoms that differ in shape, size and temperature.
 Democritus thought of matter as being discrete matter.
Aristotle
 Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) believed that all matter was made up of four distinct elements. Earth,
wind, water, and fire.
Is matter continuous or discrete?
 Continuous – no smallest piece… matter can be broken down into smaller and smaller pieces
forever.
 Discrete – there is a smallest piece… matter can be broken down into smaller and smaller pieces
until you reach the smallest piece.
John Dalton (1803 – 1805)
 Created atomic theory
 Using or explaining
 Law of Conservation of Mass
 Law of Definite Proportions
 Law of Multiple Proportions
Law of Conservation of Mass
 The mass of the products of a reaction equals the mass of the reactants
 According to Einstein’s E=mc
2
there should be a slight loss of mass in an exothermic
reaction
 The mass of the energy released is so small that we can ignore it
 In other words: for practical purposes, the Law of Conservation of Mass is valid.
Conservation of atoms
 Atoms are conserved because atoms have mass.
 If we start with a certain amount of atoms, we will end with the same amount of atoms.
Law of Definite Proportions
 A given compound contains the same elements in exactly the same proportions by mass.
 Regardless of the
 Size of the sample
 Source of the compound
 e.g. Salt is always 39.34% Na by mass and 60.66% Cl by mass
Law of Multiple Proportions
 When two elements form a series of compounds, the ratios of the masses of the second
element that combine with 1g of the first element can always be reduced to small whole
numbers.
Dalton’s Atomic Theory
1. All matter is made of indivisible and indestructible atoms. (false)
2. All atoms of a given element are identical in their physical and chemical properties. (false)
3. Atoms of different elements differ in their physical and chemical properties. (false… kind of)
4. Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole-number ratios to form compounds.
5. Chemical reactions consist of the combination, separation, or rearrangement of atoms.
Subatomic Particles
 1887 – J.J. Thomson discovered the electron.
 The idea that an atom could not be divided was proven false
 Note: electron is abbreviated as e
-

 Used Cathode Ray Tube to find the electron

 Along with William Thomson (Lord Kelvin – credited with the Kelvin)
 Consisted of a large positively charged spherical cloud with negative charges distributed
amongst it.
 The dough is a ball of positive charge
 The chocolate chips are the negative electrons distributed in the dough
The Gold Foil Experiment
 1910 – Ernest Rutherford, conducted the gold-foil experiment with help from his students Hans
Geiger (creator of the Geiger counter) and Ernest Marsden.
 Directed a beam of alpha particles (positively charged) at a thin gold foil.
 The alpha particles would be detected when they struck a zinc sulfide (ZnS) screen.
 Rutherford expected to see the majority of alpha particles going straight through the foil.
Gold Foil Experiment – observed results
 Most particles went straight through the gold foil.
 Some were deflected at angles greater than 90 degrees.
 “It was quite the most incredible event that has ever happened to me in my life. It was almost as
incredible as if you fired a 15-inch shell at a piece of tissue paper and it came back and hit you.
On consideration, I realized that this scattering backward must be the result of a single collision,
and when I made calculations I saw that it was impossible to get anything of that order of
magnitude… etc”
 Atoms must contain a localized region where the majority of mass is found.
 This mass must be rather large.
 The central mass is the nucleus.
 Rutherford concluded that the atom must be mostly empty space with electrons orbiting around
the positive nucleus.
 Modern Atomic image emerged.
 Nucleus is positively charged.
 Negatively charged electrons moving around nucleus.
 The positively charged particles in the nucleus are called protons.
Protons
 Charge of proton is exactly equal, but opposite sign, to that of an electron (1.0602189 x 10
-19
)
 Mass is 1.0073 amu
 Almost 2000 times that of an e
-

Parts of an atom
 A neutral atom must contain equal number of protons and electrons
 1932 – James Chadwick showed that most nuclei also contain a neutron – a particle with no
charge.
 Mass = 1.0087 amu
 Proton and neutron have approximately the same mass.
 Electron’s mass is generally disregarded as it is so small.
 Atoms consist mostly of space
 If the earth were the size of an atom, the nucleus would be the size of a basketball in the center.
 Image the Metrodome. If you are walking around the concourse, you would be the electron
while a marble placed at the 50 yard line would be the nucleus.

 Very hard to visualize… even harder to draw!
Atomic Mass Number
 The mass number is the total number of particles in the nucleus.
 The number of protons in an atom is known as the atomic number.

What Bohr saw…
 Emission Spectrum of Hydrogen.
 Came to the conclusion that light is discrete and not continuous.
Bohr’s Atom
 Energy in the atom is quantized  electrons are in “energy levels”
 Energy level (n) – an allowed energy value that an electron can have in an atom.
How Bohr’s Atom Explained it
 Electron gains potential energy and moves father from the nucleus. A photon of light is
absorbed.
 Electron loses potential energy and moves closer to nucleus. A photon of light is emitted.

Atomic Orbitals and Electron Configurations
Modern Atomic Model
 Bohr’s model was able to explain the Hydrogen atom only.
 Electrons do not follow specific paths around a nucleus. They don’t orbit around the nucleus like
planets orbit around the sun.
 Instead, electrons occupy a space around the nucleus in an electron cloud.
Louis de Broglie
 Postulated that all matter has wave properties, and therefore duality.
 de Broglie equation

, where λ is wavelength, h is Planck’s constant, m is the mass, and v is
velocity.
 Why aren’t people more wavelike then?
 Because our mass is so large that λ is too small to detect.
Erwin Schrödinger
 1926 – Wave mechanics – fundamental quantum theory.
 Treated electrons as standing waves.
 Devised a mathematical equation (called the Schrödinger Equation) that could be used
to calculate the intensity of an electron.
 Intensity of an electron.
 Led to probability clouds.
 Pattern of e
-
position over time.

()

The Electron Cloud Model
 Orbital – the space around the nucleus where an electron might occur.
 A probability distribution
 The path an electron takes is unknown
 The electrons travel freely within an orbital and we can only predict the probability of where the
electron might be.
Electron cloud
 The higher the intensity, the higher the possibility of finding an electron.
Orbitals
 Energy levels (n), called principal energy levels, are discrete (quantized)
 Can be divided into sublevels
 Sublevels are s, p, d, f.
 ħĤ
Sublevels
 Each sublevel can hold a different number of electrons, regardless of the principal energy level.
 S – maximum of 2 electrons, maximum of 1 orbital
 P – maximum of 6 electrons, maximum of 3 orbitals
 D – maximum of 10 electrons, maximum of 5 orbitals
 F – maximum of 14 electrons, maximum of 7 orbitals
 Each orbital can only hold a maximum or 2 electrons.
s Orbitals
 s orbitals are spherical in shape.
 A 2s orbital is the same, only bigger.
p Orbitals
 p orbitals are 2-lobed orbitals along the x, y, and z axes.
 If there is a p orbital, there is a s orbital, so they would be combined around 1 nucleus.
d Orbitals
 d orbital shapes become confusing and difficult to draw.
 Four spheres in the x, y, and z axes. d orbitals also have two spheres and a doughnut shape in
between them. All combined into one orbital.
f Orbitals
 We rarely work with f orbital atoms, so we do not need to be able to draw them. f orbitals are s,
p, d, and f orbitals combined into one.
Filling Orbitals
 Each element has a specific electron configuration.
 A written representation of the occupied orbitals.

 Aufbau Principle
 Pauli Exclusion Principle
 Hund’s Rule
Aufbau Principle
 Electrons are added one at a time to the lowest energy orbitals available until all the electrons

 Aufbau – German for building up.
 Lowest energy level always 1s
 Energy increases as sublevels increase.
Pauli Exclusion Principle
 Named after Wolfgang Pauli.
 Each orbital can hold TWO electrons with opposite spins. (spins: up or down)
 Pauli won the 1924 Nobel Prize in Physics after Einstein nominated him.
Hund’s Rule
 Within a sublevel, place one electron per orbital before pairing them.
 A maximum number of unpaired electrons results.

Periodic Trends Section 9.8 – 9.9
 Periodic Trends – gradual, predictable changes in the properties of elements as you move across
the periodic table. Example: Metallic Character.
 Reactivity – the tendency of a chemical substance to undergo a chemical reaction; or how
vigorously a substance tends to react.
 Trend is different for metals and nonmetals
 Metals
 More reactive from top to bottom
 Less reactive from left to right
 Nonmetals
 Less reactive from top to bottom
 More reactive from left to right
 Why? (Hint: Think why do things react? What’s the importance that anything reacts?)
 Adding energy to lower energy levels requires less energy and they have only 1 valence
electron, so they want to lose it to be stable.
 Distance from the nucleus of an atom to the outermost electron.
 Increases from top to bottom.
 Increases from right to left.
 Decreases from left to right.
 Why? If we’re adding e
-
Ionization Energy (IE)
 Energy needed to remove an electron from the valence shell of an atom.
 Relates to how easily an atom can become an ion.
 The larger the atom is, the easier its electrons are to remove.
 Increases from bottom to top.
 Increases from left to right.
 Why?
Electron Affinity
 Energy emitted upon the addition of an electron to an atom.
 Increases from bottom to top.
 Increases from left to right.
 You can think of it as an atom’s tendency to gain an electron.
 Larger EA = Greater tendency to gain an electron.
 Cations are positively charged ions. (Lose e
-
)
 Cations are always smaller than the original atom.
 Why?
 The loss of an e
-
.
 Any atom that loses an e
-
is a Cation.
 Anions are negatively charged ions. (Gain e

)
 Anions are always larger than the original atom.
 Why?

is an Anion.
Chemical Bonding
Bonding – Why and what is a bond
 Why?
 Enables elements to fulfill the octet rule.
 Only occurs if the bond is favorable for both elements.
 What is a bond?
 A force.
 Holds groups of two or more atoms together.
 Those atoms function as a unit.
 An interaction of the valence electrons of different atoms.
Three Major Types of Bonding
 Metallic, ionic, and covalent.
 Ionic and Covalent bonds are the spectral ends of bonding.
 We use terms like “sharing”, “unequal sharing”, and “transfer” when talking about bonding,
because of how the electrons interact between atoms.
Ionic Bonding – periodic trends
 Attraction between oppositely charged ions (bonding between a metal and non-metal).
 Example:
 Salt (NaCl) = Na
+
+ Cl
-
 NaCl
 Transition metals can also form Cations.
 Except Rhenium (Re).
 Many transition metals can form more than 1 Cation.
 Which Cation they form is predicted from the kind of ionic bond it forms.
 Ionic bonds can be both very strong and very weak.
Lattice Structure
 Lattice Structure or Crystal Lattice – structure an ionic compound forms.
 Simplest repeating unit is the unit cell.
 A few different arrangements of lattice structures exist.
Covalent Bonding
 Covalent Bonding – electrons are shared between two atoms. Only happens between non-
metals.
 Because covalent bonds are made by sharing electrons, we know that each bond we see is made
of two electrons. Covalent bonds are always made with two electrons, never more, never less.
Metallic Bonding
 Delocalized electrons – Orbitals overlap such that electrons move freely, detached from its
parent atom, and that then gives stability.
 Example – Na
 Valence electron (3s
1
) shares space with a neighboring atom, creating a shared
molecular orbital.
 Sharing occurs between the central atom and the 3s orbitals of eight atoms.
Lewis Dot Structures
 Representation of a molecule that shows how the valence electrons are arranged among the
atoms in the molecule.
 Show only the valence electrons.
 Based on the Octet Rule.
 One electron = one dot.
 Ionic bonds
 NaCl
 Covalent bonds
 CH
4

 Diatomic molecules
 HOBrFINCl
 Looks the same for all elements in a group.
 Pairs of electrons that are not involved with bonding are called lone pairs or unshared pairs.
Types of Covalent Bonds
 A single bond involves two atoms sharing one electron pair.
 A double bond involves two atoms sharing two electron pairs.
 A triple bond involves two atoms sharing three electron pairs.
 Not all elements can form double and triple bonds.
 Generally, only Carbon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, Sulfur, and Silicon.
General Rules for Drawing Lewis Structures
 Hydrogen and halogen atoms bind to only one other atom and are usually on the end of the
molecule.
 The atom with the lowest electronegativity is often the central atom.
 Electronegativity increases from bottom to top and left to right.
 Consider symmetry. If there’s a chance to have symmetry, use that as a guideline.
 Place one electron on each side before pairing any electrons.
Steps for Writing Lewis Structures
 Obtain the total number of valence electrons in the molecule.
 Atoms that are bonded can be represented with a line. Each line is two electrons.
 Arrange the remaining electrons to satisfy the octet rule (8 e
-
, except for H (satisfies rule with
only two electrons)).
 Ex: SCl
2

 S: 6e
-
, Cl: 7e
-
(2) = 14e
-
. Total 20 valence electrons.
Lewis Structures with Multiple Bonds
 When more than one Lewis structure can be drawn for a molecule, the molecule shows
resonance.
 Resonance Structures – Different possible Lewis Structures for molecule.
 The best example of resonance occurs in C
6
H
6
, Benzene.
Polar Covalent Bonds
 A polar covalent bond is between an ionic and covalent bond.
 Electrons are not shared equally between atoms.
 Unequal sharing creates partial charge.
 Lowercase Greek letter delta (δ) indicates the partial charge in these molecules.
How do we know what kind of bond is going to form?
 Electronegativity is a rough guide.
 Electronegativity is the tendency to draw electrons in a bond towards itself.
 Increases from left to right, bottom to top.
Electronegativity
 Difference in EN is <0.5, a non-polar covalent bond forms.
 Difference in EN is >1.6, an ionic bond forms.
 Difference in EN is 0.5 – 1.6, a polar covalent bond forms.
 Note: These ranges are not exact… some bonds have a difference >1.6 and are
considered polar while others have a difference <1.6 and are considered ionic.
Remember ionic bonds form between metal and nonmetal elements while covalent
bonds form between nonmetals only.
 The polarity of a bond increases as the difference in electronegativity increases.
Polar molecules
 Separation of partial charges create a dipole.
 Polarity – Describes how much of a partial charge a molecule has.
 Polar molecules contain polar bonds.
 Remember: Like dissolves like.
 A polar substance dissolves another polar substance.
 A non-polar substance dissolves a non-polar substance.
 Cannot use a non-polar substance to dissolve a polar substance.
Polar vs. Non-polar Molecules
 Not all molecules with polar bonds are polar molecules.
 Sometimes dipoles cancel if they are equal and opposite directions.
 The centers of (+) and (-) charge are not different.
 Example: (O) = (C) = (O) (Opposite and equal, overall no polarity in the molecule)
So…
 A molecule is polar if…
 It contains polar bonds
AND
 It has a nonbonding pair of electrons on the central atom (e.g. H
2
O)
OR
 It has different elements bonded around the central atom (e.g. BF
2
H)

 See-saw
 T-structure
 Octahedral
 Square pyramidal

Naming and Writing Compounds
Naming Binary Ionic Compounds
 Binary Ionic Compounds – Contain a metal and a non-mental. (metal – Cation, non-metal –
Anion)
 Overall charge on a compound must equal zero.
 Cations are named first using the element name followed (e.g. Lithium ion).
 Anions are named second with the suffix –ide (e.g. fluoride).
Binary Ionic Compounds
 Two types of Binary Ionic Compounds.
 Type I: The metal present forms only one type of Cation, meaning we can know the
charge of a type one metal from looking at the periodic table. There are a few
exceptions; Silver, Aluminum, Gallium, Indium, Zinc, Cadmium, etc.

Classical Naming System
 Classical – Uses suffixes to indicate Cation charge.
 Name the Cation using its Latin name/root.
 Lower charge gets the suffix –ous.
 Higher charge gets the suffix –ic.
 AuCl is aurous chloride
 AuCl
3
is auroic chloride
 Less preferred way of naming since it needs you to know the Latin root of the element.
Unneeded knowledge.
Writing Binary Compounds
 Criss-cross rule
 Example: Aluminum Chloride
 Write the symbols and charge of the elements
 Al

 Criss-cross charges and write them as subscripts
 Al
3+
Cl

becomes Al
1
Cl

.
 The charge of Aluminum goes down to the subscript of Chloride, and the charge
of Chloride goes down to the subscript of Aluminum, creating Al

 Combine (and reduce, if needed) as the formula (“1” is never written)
 AlCl

 If two oxyanions exist:
 Name the ion with fewer oxygen atoms with –ite suffix.
 Name the ion with more oxygen atoms with –ate suffix.
 If more than two oxyanions exist:
 Name the ion with the fewest oxygen atoms with hypo– prefix and –ite suffix.
 Name the ion with the most oxygen atoms with per– prefix and –ate suffix.
 Note that the charge stays the same no matter what the number of oxyanions.

Binary Molecular (Covalent) Compounds
 Type III Binary compounds occur when two nonmetals bond – Molecular Compounds.
 Naming Type III compounds
 Use the full element name to name the first element.
 Use the –ide suffix on the second element.
 Greek prefixes denote the number of atoms present (see back of periodic table).
 Prefix mono– is never used on the first element (e.g. CO is called Carbon Monoxide, not
Monocarbon Monoxide).
 Sometimes, we eliminate the vowel on the end of the prefix to make the pronunciation
easier.

 To name these compounds:
 Use “hydro____ic acid”.
 Fill in the blank with the anion’s name without the last syllable.
 Example#1:

 These compounds have:
 Do contain Oxygen.
 To name these compounds:
 Use “___ic acid” for “-ate” anions.
 Use “___ous acid” for “-ite” anions.
 Do not use “hydro” with these… the word “acid” is how you know it begins with
hydrogen, not “hydro-”.
 Example#2:
 H

Writing and balancing chemical reactions
Chemical Reactions
 Represented by a chemical equation.
 Reactants – chemicals present at the start of the reaction (the left side of the arrow).
 Products – chemicals formed after the reaction (the right side of the arrow).
 Reactants  Products (read as “Reactants yield Products” Can think of as “Reactants equal
Products”).
 Law of Conservation of Mass – mass can neither be created nor destroyed.
 Starting atoms equal ending atoms.
 Therefore the reaction must be balanced.
 Combustion of Methane:
 CH

 Provides:
 Identities of the reactants and products.
 Relative numbers of each molecule.
 Physical states.
 Solid (s)
 Liquid (l)
 Gas (g)
 Aqueous (aq) (Dissolves in water)
Balancing Chemical Equations
 Coefficient (an integer) in front of the molecule indicates the relative number.
 Smallest possible coefficients.
 Writing and balancing equations:
 Write the reactants, products and their states.
 Write an unbalanced equation.
 Balance the equation by inspection:
 Hint: Start with the most complicated molecule, balance single elements last.
 Don’t change the formulas (subscripts) of the chemical formulas.
 Hint: If you have a polyatomic ion as a reactant and a product, treat it as a single
entity.
 Ex: NaOH + CaCO
3
 Na
2
(O

+ Ca(OH)

 Ex1: Solid potassium reacts with liquid water to form gaseous hydrogen and potassium
hydroxide that dissolves in water.

the reactant side there are 2 H atoms and on the product side 3. If we place a coefficient
of 2 in front of both H2O and KOH we have 4 H atoms on each side.
 2K

 Also note that the O atoms balance, however the K atoms do not. This is easily fixed by
adding a 2 in front of the K on the reactant side.
 Step 4: Check: There are 2 K, 4 H, and 2 O atoms on both sides of the arrow and the
coefficients are the smallest integers that give a balance equation. Therefore this is the
correct balanced chemical equation.

 Zn
2+
(aq)
+ Cu
(s)

 Reducing agent is Zn, the Oxidizing agent is Cu. Whichever one is being oxidized is the
reducing agent and whichever one is being reduced is the oxidizing agent.
Oxidation Numbers
 Defined as
 The charge on an atom or a monatomic ion, or
 The charge an atom in a substance would have if the shared pair of electrons belonged
to the more electronegative atom.
 e.g. Binary ionic compound
 NaCl
 The charge of Na is 1+, the oxidation number is +1.
 The charge of Cl is 1-, the oxidation number is -1.
Rules for Assigning Oxidation Numbers
 The oxidation number of:
1. An atom = 0. (Zn, F
2
, P
4
)
2. A monatomic ion = its charge. (Cu
2+
is +2 & O
2-
is -2)
3. Fluorine is always -1 in all of its compounds because of its electronegativity. (HF, NF
3
, SF
6
)
4. Chlorine, Bromine, and Iodine is usually equal to -1, unless in combination with oxygen
or fluorine (each I in NI
3
has oxidation number = -1).
5. Hydrogen is +1 when bonded with nonmetals (HCl, H
2
O, NH
3
) and -1 when bonded with
metals (AlH
3
and LiH). Usually seen with a +1 oxidation number.
6. Oxygen is usually -2, except in peroxides it is -1 (H
2
O
2
and Na
2
O
2
, here it would be a -1
oxidation number).
7. Group 1 atoms is +1, and group 2 atoms is +2.
8. Sum of oxidation numbers of atoms in a compound is always 0.
9. Sum of oxidation numbers in a polyatomic ion equals the charge of the ion. If it’s a
neutral ion, the sum is 0, but if it’s a charged ion, the sum equals the charge.
 Example
1. SO

 -2 for each Oxygen (rule 6)
 Oxidation number for S + 2 * -2 = 0 (rule 8)
 Oxidation number for S = +4
2. CO

4 steps to determining empirical formula
 Obtain the mass of each element present (in grams).
 Convert the masses to moles. (Divide by atomic number) (Divide by molar mass)
 Divide the number of moles of each element by the smallest number of moles to convert the
smallest number to 1. If all of the numbers obtained are integers (whole numbers), they are the
subscripts in the empirical formula. If one or more of these numbers are not integers, go to step
4.
 Multiply the numbers you derived in step 3 by the smallest integer that will convert all of them
to whole numbers. This set of whole numbers represents the subscripts in the empirical formula.
 Common decimals and corresponding fractions.
 0.500  ½
 0.333  1/3
 0.25  ¼

 Largest portion is the solvent.
 Smaller portion is the solute(s).
 Solutes dissolve in the solvent.
Solution Composition
 Saturated – Contains as much solute as will dissolve at that temperature.
 Unsaturated – Can still dissolve solute.
 Supersaturated – Contains more solutes that in a saturated solution.
Mass Percent
 Expresses concentration of solute as a percentage of the mass of solution (weight/weight).

 Example:
o A solution is prepared by dissolving 1.0 g of NaCl in 48 g of H
2
O.

Dilution
 The process of adding more solvent to a solution.
 A standard solution (known concentration) is brought to a certain volume to achieve the desired
molarity.
 For example, I buy concentrated acids for the lab and simply add water to a known amount to
dilute the concentration to the desired molarity.
 IMPORTANT!!!
o Moles of solute after dilution = moles of solution before dilution.
 In a dilution, the only thing we are changing is the volume of solvent. The number of moles
remain the same (they are just getting more spread out).

Le Châtelier’s Principle Chapter 14.8
Let’s Think
 Consider the reaction of CO
2
in soda. Here is the reaction:
o CO
2(g)
⇌ CO
2(aq)

o What happens when you leave your open can of soda out?
 The CO
2
escapes.
o Why doesn’t it get flat in the store?
 It’s closed.
o Why?
 Le Châtelier’s Principle – If you disturb an equilibrium, the reaction will shift to counteract the
change and reestablish the equilibrium.
Change in Reactant or Product Concentration
 Adding a reactant or product shifts the equilibrium away from the increase.
o A ⇌ B
o If we increase A, the equilibrium will shift towards B.
o If we increase B, the equilibrium will shift towards A.
 Removing a reactant or product shifts the equilibrium towards the decrease.
o A⇌B
o If we decrease A, the equilibrium will shift towards A.
Change in Volume and Pressure
 As volume decreases, pressure increases.
o If pressure increases, the reaction shifts towards fewer molecules.
o 2NO
2(g)
⇌ N
2
O
4(g)

o If we decrease the volume of the reaction mixture, it’s going to increase the pressure
and equilibrium will shift towards the right side (the side with fewer molecules).
o If pressure decreases, the reaction shifts toward more molecules.
o H
2(g)
+ I
2(g)
⇌ 2HI
(g)

o If pressure is changed, the equilibrium won’t shift since the numbers of molecules on
each side are the same.
Change in Temperature
 Heat can be treated as if it were a component of the reaction.
o Exothermic – Heat is a product.
o Endothermic – Heat is a reactant.
 If the temperature increases, the reaction shifts away from the heat.
o Exothermic
 A ⇌ B + heat
 If the temperature increases, the equilibrium will shift towards A.
o Endothermic
 A + heat ⇌ B
 If the temperature increases, the equilibrium will shift towards B.
 If the temperature decreases, the reaction shifts towards the heat.
 K and temperature changes.
o If the reaction shifts from left to right, K increases.
o If the reaction shifts from right to left, K decreases.
 No effect on equilibrium.
o A catalyst for the forward reaction is also a catalyst for the reverse reaction.
o Equilibrium will be achieved faster with a catalyst.
o A catalyst has no effect on the equilibrium concentrations or the equilibrium constant
of a reaction; it merely increases the rate at which equilibrium is reached.

(Weak acid) and HCO

(Conjugate Base)
 Buffers keep pH constant by reacting with any extra H

.
o When base (OH
-
) is added to the solution… the weak acid reacts with it to turn it into

 This gets rid of the extra OH
-
and keeps pH constant.
 Why are buffered solutions important?
 Human blood
o In order for humans to survive, the pH of blood must be between 7.35 and 7.45.
o This narrow range of pH is maintained because blood is a buffered solution.
 A buffered solution is one that resists a change in pH even when a strong acid or base is added
to it.
 A solution is buffered by the presence of a weak acid and its conjugate base.
o Adding 0.01 mol of HCl to 1 L of pure water changes the pH from 7 to 2.

o Technically structural isomers or constitutional isomers.
Functional Groups chapter 18.6 – 18.9
Aromatic Hydrocarbons
 Hydrocarbon based on the benzene ring.
o Most have odors.
o Often carcinogens.
 Derivatives of benzene exist, e.g.
o Phenol
o 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene
Functional Groups
 Reactive portion of a molecule (group of atoms) that undergo predictable reactions.
o Include: alkenes and alkynes.
Alcohols
 Compound with formula ROH.
o “R” represents some carbon chain.
o Polar molecules
o Toxic
o Named using the suffix “–ol”
Carbonyl Compounds
 Contains a carbonyl, C=O, group
 Includes
o Aldehyde – Compound with the formula RCHO.
 Suffix “–al”
o Ketone – Compound with formula RCOR’.
 Suffix “–one”
o Carboxylic Acid – Compound with formula RCOOH.
 Suffix “–oic acid” replaces the “e” of the alkane.
o Ester – Compound with formula RCOOR’.
 Suffix “–ate”.
Amine
 Compound with formula RNH
2
or RNHR’.
o Formed by the reaction of ammonia with a carboxylic acid.
o May smell poorly (i.e. decaying material).
Ether
 Compound with formula ROR’.
Practice #1 – Identify the Functional Groups
 Double bonded OH – Alcohol.
 H
2
N, NH – Amine.
 Heptagon with three double bonds – Aromatic Hydrocarbon.
 COC – Ether group.
 Carbonyl group + Ether group = Ester group.
Organic Reactions, Polymers, and Biochemistry – Chapter 18.11 & Some of 19
Organic Reactions
 Between functional groups.
 Alkanes undergo substitution reactions.
o CH
4
+ Br
2
 CH
3
Br + HBr
 Alkenes and Alkynes undergo addition reactions.
o Breaking down a double bond and replace it with different compound so there’s only all
single bonds.
Condensation Reactions
 Occur between Carboxylic acids and alcohols or between Carboxylic acids and Amines.
o A small molecule (often water) forms as a product.
Polymers
 Long chain-like molecules made of repeating smaller molecules called monomers.
o Poly– means many.
o –mer means part.
 Ethylene monomers break apart their double bond and bond with other Ethylene monomers,
creating Polyethylene.
 Polyvinylidene Chloride (Saran Wrap)
o Cl’s create dipole-dipole attractions with glass, making it stick.
 Polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon)
o Surrounded by F atoms makes it non-polar so nothing sticks.
Condensation Polymers
 Formed by a condensation reaction.
o E.g. Polyethylene Terephthalate.
o Used for plastic pop bottles.
Polymer Properties
 Determined by:
o Length of Polymer chain.
o Monomer properties.
o Amount of branching.
 Straight chains mean more Intermolecular Forces (IMFs), more rigid.
 Branched chains prevent IMFs, looser packing, more flexible.
 Chemical bonds forming links between the Polymer chains makes them more rigid and/or elastic.
o Chemical reaction needed to break them.
o Can change a liquid Polymer into a solid or gel-like Polymer.
o Less Cross Linking = weaker polymer.
o More Cross Linking = stronger polymer.
Amino Acids
 Organic molecule containing an Amine and a Carboxylic Acid group.
o 20 common Amino Acids.
Protein
 Biological Polymer whose Amino Acid monomers are linked by a Peptide bond.
Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA)
 Polymer of Deoxyribonucleotides, a Polynucleotide.
o Nucleotide – Molecule consisting of a sugar (either Ribose or 2-Deoxyribose) to which is
attached a phosphate group and a nitrogen-containing base.
