A covalent bond is a chemical bond which involves the sharing of electrons between neighbouring atoms.1 An atom is a chemical species comprising a central positively-charged nucleus surrounded by one or more negatively-charged electrons.25 g Cd)(3.24845 × atomic mass of 12c: 2.357 g S Therefore.

1.8 Nearly all of the mass is located in the nucleus. This guarantees that elements combine in definite mass ratios. This isotope has a mass of 12 u (exactly) by definition.3 . the different masses of one element that combine with the same mass of the other element are in the ratio of small whole numbers. the elements are always combined in the same proportions by mass.2 The first law of chemical combination is the law of conservation of mass: no detectable gain or loss of mass occurs in chemical reactions. An anion is a negatively-charged chemical species. 1.7 Refer to Table 1. 1. The third and final is the law of multiple proportions: whenever two elements form more than one compound.4 The law of definite proportions. A reactant is a chemical species which is transformed in a chemical reaction A chemical reaction is a process whereby one or more chemical species is/are transformed into different chemical species. A cation is a positively-charged chemical species. 1. The Law of Definite Proportions derives from the notion that compounds are always composed of the same types and numbers of atoms of the various elements in the compound. Ltd 1. 1. the charge may be either positive or negative. Elements combine in definite ratios as atoms. An element is a chemical species comprised of only a single type of atom.6 12 6 1.Chapter 1: The atom An ion is a charged chemical species.3 The Law of Conservation of Mass requires that atoms are indestructible. 1. This generally involves the making and/or breaking of chemical bonds.5 Conservation of mass derives from the postulate that atoms are not destroyed in chemical reactions. A compound is a chemical species comprised of two or more elements in a definite and unchanging proportion. because this is the portion of the atom where the proton(s) and the neutron(s). A product is the species formed in a chemical reaction. assuming the atoms are indestructible. are located. C . the heaviest constituent particles of the atom. Chemical elements always combine in a definite fixed proportion by mass to form chemical compounds.1. The second is the law of definite proportions: in a given chemical compound. © John Wiley & Sons Australia.

and the mass number is the sum of the neutrons and the protons.11 The isotopes of an element have identical atomic numbers (number of protons) but differing number of neutrons.

but silver is not. because of their similar properties and tendencies to form similar compounds. Germanium has an atomic mass of 72.9 u.23 There is no space in the periodic table for another element of mass 73 u. Ne. 1. sometimes called the noble gases: Helium. In order for there to be a new element with an atomic mass of 73. 1.6 u and an atomic number of 32. whereas silver is not.Chapter 1: The atom 1. Xe. Strontium should therefore form compounds that are similar to those of calcium.5 . 1.27 The group 18 elements. so they might well be expected to occur together in nature. 1. therefore Mendeleev left spaces for the ones that he predicted would eventually be discovered because he grouped elements with similar chemical properties together.17 A period in the periodic table is a horizontal row of elements.24 (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) 1.

Neon. A group is one of the vertical columns of the periodic table.19 The atomic number is related to the chemistry of an element since the periodic table is based on atomic numbers and the mass numbers vary with the number of neutrons in the atom. He. the known element arsenic has one more proton and has an atomic mass of 74.21 Silver and gold are in the same periodic table group as copper. it would be expected to be next to germanium and have one more proton.
