Atom Questions & Answers

What is the difference between Molar Mass and Atomic Mass?
The molar mass and Atomic mass are both important terms in chemistry. You can easily confuse one for another because both contain the word 'mass.' By definition, molar mass means the mass of a particular element or compound divided by the amount of s
What is the difference between Aldose and Ketose?
The aldose molecules have five hydroxyl groups. The majority of aldose molecules usually has a cyclic structure. Often, when the molecules of a hydrocarbon have a cyclic structure, they would form a six-member ring structure, which is called a hemiac
What is the difference between Orbit and Orbital?
Orbit is a circular pathway that has a fixed path around a central point, while orbital is an uncertain area the nucleus of an atom. When we say orbit, we refer to the gravitationally curved trajectory of an object, such as the path of a planet about
Which electron configuration could represent a strontium atom in an excited state?
Each element has an electron configuration that corresponds to its proton number. These electrons are responsible for the reactivity of the element. Strontium is an alkali metal and alkali metal and is one of the most reactive elements on earth. It h
