Side ASide B
Why should Chemistry be studied in A+P class?
Body functions depend on Cellular functions.
Anything that takes up space and has weight; composed of elements.
Composed of chemically identical atoms
These type of elements are required by the body in large amounts.
These type of elements are required by the body in small amounts.
These types of elements are toxic to the body in large amounts
Smallest particle of an element
Part of an atom that carries a single positive charge
Part of an atom that carries no electrical charge
Part of an atom that carries a single negative charge. They revolve around the nucleus.
Term for the number of protons n the nucleus of one atom and equals the number of electrons in the atom.
The number of protons plus the number of neutrons of the atom.
Is it a different element if the number of protons change?
Is it a different element if the number of neutrons change?
No, but it becomes an isotope.
How do you find the neutron number?
Atomic weight minus the atomic number.
Atoms with the same atomic numbers but with different atomic weights are called?
Isotopes. They have the same number of protons and electrons but a different number of neutrons.
This type of radiation is composed of 2 protons and 2 neutrons.
This type of radiation is composed of fast moving electrons.
This type of radiation is composed of electromagnetic wave energy
Particle formed when 2 or more atoms chemically combine
Particle formed when 2 or more atoms of different elements chemically combine.
These depict the elements present and the number of each atom present in the molecule. Ex: H2 C6 H12 O6
_______ form when atoms combine with other atoms.
Electrons of an atom occupy regions of space called _________ _________ which circle the nucleus.
If the outermost shell is full, the atom is stable and is categorized as one of the ________ _________.
An atom that gains or loses electrons to become stable and is an electrically charged atom.
A negatively charged ion that is formed when an atom gains electrons.
A positively charged ion formed when an atom loses electrons.
An attraction b.w. a cation and anion formed when electrons are transferred from one atom to another atom.
Bond formed when atoms share electrons.
A molecule with a slightly negative end and a slightly positive end that results when electrons are not shared equally in covalent bonds.
Polar Molecule. Water is an important polar molecule.
A weak attraction of the positive hydrogen end of a polar molecule to the negative nitrogen or oxygen end of another polar molecule
This is when chemical bonds form or break among atoms, ions, or molecules.
The starting materials of the reaction
The substances formed at the end of a chemical reaction
This is the type of reaction when more complex chemical structures are formed. A+B = AB
This is the type of reaction when chemical bonds are broken to form simpler chemical structures. AB----> A + B
This is the type of reaction when chemical bonds are broken and new bonds are formed. AB + CD -----> AD + CB
This is the type of reaction when the products can change back to the reactants. A + B AB
_______ are substances that release ions in water.
Electrolytes that dissociate to release hydrogen ions in water
Substances that release ions that can combine with Hydrogen Ions
Electrolytes formed by the reaction between an acid and a base
Indicates the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution
These kind of molecules contain C and U, are large, and dissolve in water
These kinds of molecules generally do not contain C, are small, and dissociate in water.
Does not need oxygen
What are the 4 organic substances?
Carbohydrates, Lipids, Proteins, and Nucleic Acids
