Dalton’s Theory
1) all matter is composed of small, indivisible particles called atoms (false, subatomic particles)
2) all atoms of a given chemical element are identical in mass and in all other properties (false, different masses, isotopes)
3) different chemical elements have different kinds of atoms, and such atoms have different masses
4) in an ordinary chemical reaction, atoms move from one substance to another, but no atom of element disappears or is changed into an atom of another element
5) the formation of a compound from its elements occurs through the combination of atoms of unlike elements in small whole number ratios
Law of conservation of mass
total mass remains constant during a chemical reaction
Law of constant composition
in a compound, the proportions by mass of the elements that compose it are fixed
Law of multiple proportions
two or more compounds of the same two elements, the masses of one element that combine with a fixed mass of the second element are in the ratio of small whole numbers
Atomic number and letter used to represent it
Z, number of protons, all atoms of the same element have the same number of protons in the nucleus
Mass number and letter used to represent it
A, sum of protons and neutrons in the nucleus
Same number of protons but different number of neutrons
Nuclear symbol
Z / (thats an x lol the element symbol)
Atomic mass and how it’s expressed
weighted average of the masses of the naturally occurring isotopes of that element, expressed in amu (atomic mass units)
Mass spectrometer
used to determine the types of isotopes present in an element, the exact atomic masses of these isotopes, and the relative amount of each isotope present
How atomic mass is found
found my multiplying the atomic mass of each isotope by its fractional abundance and adding the values obtained
Avogadro’s number
convenient number to use when working with atoms, molecules, or ions (6.0221415e+23)
Represents the number of atoms of an element in a sample whose mass in grams is numerically equal to the atomic mass of the element
