Unit 2

Atomic Structure and Nomenclature

Learning Targets

  1. Apply the Law of Definite Proportion to determine the mass of one element in a compound if given the mass and formula of the compound.
  2. Determine the mass of one element in a compound if given the mass of any other element in the compound.
  3. Interpret a series of mass data (mass of sulfur and oxygen in two different compounds)to verify the law of multiple proportions.
  4. Explain the results of the cathode ray demonstration and the conclusion(s) which can be drawn from them.
  5. Use the periodic table to determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in a particular isotope.
  6. Determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an ion.    ex.  K+
  7. Explain why the atomic mass number for an element is not an exact whole number.
  8. Calculate the average atomic mass of an element from % abundance data.
  9. Classify an element according to its location in the periodic table.
  10. Compare and contrast the characteristics of metals and nonmetals.
  11. Determine the % composition of a hydrate from a set of experimental data.
  12. Determine the % of silver and the % of oxygen in silver oxide from a set of experimental data.
  13. Determine the number of atoms of each element in a chemical formula. ex. 3Ca(NO3)2
  14. Compare and contrast molecular compounds and ionic compounds.
