C12 atom is 12 amu
There is an infinite number of significant figures
Cl35 (75.53mol) Cl37 (24.47mol) in 100 mol of chlorine there natural abundance
NOT in 100 grams, atoms, molecules
The carbon atomic mass shows us that:
Stereochemical, structural, molecular, and empirical ALL can be used to obtain the % by mass
composition of a chemical compound
Chemical species are atoms, molecules, molecular fragments, ions, etc., subjected to a chemical process
or to a measurement.
HF (hydrogen fluoride)
CO (carbon monoxide)
Why not carbon oxide? Because there are other molecular compounds of carbon and oxygen having
atom ratio other than one C2H6O+ O2 > CO2+H2O
1C2H6O+ 2O2 > CO2+ 3H2O
Formal Charge =
#ve #e around element In the past you may have learnt that O is always 2, however it is better to count each bond to an
O as 1 since there is a difference between C=O and CO as seen by comparing the aldehyde
and the alcohol in the diagram above. After all , the 2 statement is wrong....e.g. in oxygen gas,
O 2 the oxidation state is zero.
If it is electronegative that it takes the electrons of the surrounding hydrogen.
copper (II) sulfate pentahydrate = CuSO45H2O
Calcium hydride = CaH2
Aluminum Oxide = Al2O3
Dinitrogen Monoxide = N2O
5e(central atom) & 6 electrons
how to find molecules?
given variables .0050 grams of H2O
want ozone (O3) molecules
O3 molecules= .0050gH20 x 1mol/18.010gH2O
1mol O atoms/1 mol H2O x 1 mol O3/ 3 mol of O atoms x NA O3 molecules/ 1 mol O3
.0050x1x1x1xNA/ 18.016x1x3x1= 5.6X10E19 O3 molecules
Molarity moles of solute/ Liters of solution
how to find moles mass/ molar mass of solute compound (ex.H2O)
Molecular compound has strong covalent bonds with a specific amount of atoms
Ionic compounds are consisted of metals and nonmetals, and has formula units.
ex. NaCl, Ca(OH)2
Covalent bonds happen between a nonmetal and a nonmetal.
Metallic bonds occur between two metals.
Oxidation number of C4H10O
In elemental form (ex.Fe, S8), oxidation number is 0.
Monatomic ions take their charge of monatomic ions.
1. The oxidation number for an atom in its elemental form is always zero.
○ A substance is elemental if both of the following are true: only one kind of atom is present
■ charge = 0
■ S 8 The oxidation number of S = 0
■ Fe: The oxidation number of Fe = 0
2. The oxidation number of a monoatomic ion = charge of the monatomic ion.
■ Oxidation number of S is -2.
■ Oxidation number of Al is +3.
3. The oxidation number of all Group 1A metals = +1 (unless elemental).
4. The oxidation number of all Group 2A metals = +2 (unless elemental).
5. Hydrogen (H) has two possible oxidation numbers:
○ +1 when bonded to a nonmetal
○ -1 when bonded to a metal
6. Oxygen (O) has two possilbe oxidation numbers:
○ -1 in peroxides (2 )....pretty uncommon
