What chemical properties do lithium and sodium have in common? Why are their properties similar?
corrodes, highly reactive.

They are in the same family.

For each of the following, define the term and describe their trend o nthe periodic table:
a) Electronegativity
b) Atomic radius
c) Ionization Energy

a) tendancy of an atom to attract electrons. affected by atomic number and and its distance its valence electrons reside

b)measure of the size of the atoms.

c) ability to lose or gain electrons. on the period table, going down is loss, going across is gain.

Per octet rule, which element is the most reactive non metal? why?

which element is the most reactive metal?

Most stable when has 8 electrons per octet rule.

most reactive nonmetal is Fluorine.
most reactive metal is Francium.

Cesium is a (metal/nonmetal) and will (lose/gain) electrons to form (positive/negative) ions called (cations/anions). This is due to (low/high) ionization energy.
metal, lose, postive, cations, low
Sulfur is a (metal/nonmetal) and will (lose/gain) 2 electrons to form (positive/negative) ions, called (cations/anions). This is due to (low/high) electronegativity.
nonmetal, gain, negative, anions, high
Will Cesiuma and Sulfur for a bond? If so what type of bond? Describe the formation of the bond.
Name the compound formula CuCl2.

Indicate the cation, anion, and molar mass.

Copper Chloride

Cation = Cu+1
Anion = Cl-1
Molar Mass = 63.548 + 35.453*2

Ammonium Phosphate. What is the cation, anion, compound formula, molar mass.
(NH4)3 PO4
cation = NH +4
anion = PO4


Define Metallic Bond.
The chemical bond characteristic of metals, in which mobile valence electrons are shared among atoms in a usually stable crystalline structure.
Describe the contributions, experiments, models for:

Dalton defined law of conservation of mass.

Thomson discovered the electron,

Rutherford and his teams discovered the proton then neutron;

Bohr is credited for having developed the concept of orbitals and a solar system-like arrangement of the electrons around the nucleus

What is the wavelength of an electromagnetic wave with a frequency of 45 Hz?
wavelength = wave speed ÷ frequency

For electromagnetic waves such as light and radio waves, the speed is the speed of light defined at 299,792,458 meters per second.

thus, 299792458 / 45

What is the frequency of an electronic wave with wavelength of 8.10x10^4m
wavelength = wave speed ÷ frequency

8.10x10^4m = (speed of light) / frequency
= speed of light/ 8.10x10^4m
