  • The AtomAtomic Number Mass NumberIsotopesElementsPeriodic Table Atoms and Elements

  • What do all of these things have in common?

  • What Are Atoms?Atoms are the building blocks of matter.So what is matter?Anything that has mass AND takes up space.

  • Which of the following are considered matterPizzaWoodLoveSoilHeatHope

  • Subatomic Particles: Smaller Parts of an AtomParticleSymbol Charge Electron e- -1 Proton p+ +1 Neutron n 0

  • Location of Subatomic Particles 10-13 cm electrons

    protons neutrons

    10-8 cmnucleus

  • Number of ElectronsAn atom is neutral = zero net charge because the # of protons = # of electronsAtomic Mass = # of p+ + # of nAtomic Number = # of protons = # of electronsAn atom with a charge is called an ion (unequal #s of protons and electrons).

  • Electron Levels (Shells)Contain electrons that are similar in energy and distance from nucleusLow energy electrons are closest to the nucleusIdentify by letters k, l, m, n, o, p, qThe first shell (k) is lowest in energy, 2nd level next and so on k
  • Order of Electron Filling The smallest shell must be filled before the next size can contain any electrons.K-Shell 2 electrons L-Shell 8 electronsM-Shell 8 electrons

    Order of filling for the first 16 electrons

  • Atomic Number Counts the number of ?in an atom

  • Atomic Mass

    Counts the number of ? + ?in an atom

  • What Are Isotopes?Atoms with the same number of protons, but different numbers of neutrons. Atoms of the same element (same atomic number) with different atomic masses. Isotopes of Chlorine35Cl37Cl1717 chlorine - 35 chlorine - 37

  • Learning Check Naturally occurring carbon consists of three isotopes, C-12, C-13, and C-14. State the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in each of these carbon atoms. 12C 13C14C 6 6 6#p _______ _______ _______ #n _______ _______ _______ #e _______ _______ _______

  • What Are Elements?Pure substances made up of all the same type of atom (same # of: p+, n, e-)The 4 most abundant elements on Earth are carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and nitrogen (POINTER: COHN or NOCH)112 elements known todayExamples: carbongoldcalcium

  • What element do these things have in common?

  • Heres a Hint

  • IRON (Fe) Latin: ferrumCheapestMost commonMost useful

    Used extensively for the making of STEEL

  • IRON (Fe) Latin: ferrumIt also carries oxygen in hemoglobin in red blood cells.

  • Symbols of ElementsUse 1 or 2 letter abbreviations Capitalize the first letter only

    Examples:C carbon CocobaltN nitrogenCacalciumF fluorine Br bromine O oxygen Mg magnesium

  • Symbols from Latin NamesElementSymbolLatin nameCopperCucuprumGoldAuaurumLeadPbplumbumMercuryHghydrargyrumPotassiumKkaliumSilverAgargentumSodiumNanatriumTinSnstannum

  • Take a guess what the correct symbol is for the element!

    Select the correct symbol for each:A. Calcium1) C 2) Ca3) CAB. Sulfur 1) S 2) Sl3) SuC. Iron1) Ir 2) FE3) Fe

  • Take a guess what the correct element is! Select the correct name for each:A. N1) neon 2) nitrogen 3) nickelB. P1) potassium2) phogiston3) phosphorusC. Ag1) silver 2) agean3) gold

  • Atomic TheoryAtoms are the building blocks of all matter, which included elements Similar atoms in each elementDifferent from atoms of other elements

  • Periodic TableThe periodic table is an arrangement of the elements according to:The number of protons, neutrons, and electronsThe way they lookThe way they act

  • The Periodic TableShows the mass number and atomic numberGives the symbol of the elementmass number 23 Na atomic number 11

  • Groups of ElementsVertical (up and down) columns on the periodic tableIndicates the number of electrons on the outer most shell called valence electrons.

  • Periods on the Periodic TableHorizontal (left to right) rows on the Periodic Table.Numbered 1-7Indicates the number of orbitals or shells the element has.

  • Periods on the Periodic Table


  • Using The Periodic TableIn your notes, use your periodic tables to determine the following for the elements at the bottom.The number of protonsThe number of neutronsThe number of shellsThe number of electrons on the outer most shell (valence electrons)Draw the atoms for eachCalcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), Chlorine (Cl)
