  • Atoms With An Extra Electron
    510 words
    Bohr's Model There are three main parts of an atom the electrons, protons and the neutrons. Each part has charge. It is rather positive, negative, or neutral. An electron always has a negative charge. Protons always have negative charges. Then finally the neutron is a neutral charge or a charge of zero. If the charge of the whole atom it zero that means there are an equal number of positive and negative pieces. An electron can be found anywhere around the nucleus, and the protons and neutrons ar...
  • Helium Atom
    306 words
    Atom Book Hey kids! Today I'm going to introduce you to the world of atoms. Atoms are little things that you or anybody else have ever seen. Make up things like trees, cars, paper, even you. So let's shrink down to size and see what it's like. We " re going to into the Helium atom today. An atom is made of little things called protons, , and electrons. Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have no charge, and electrons have a negative charge. Electrons travel around the center of the atom, wh...
  • Empty Space Between Atoms
    1,484 words
    The Greek concept of atomos: the atom Around 440 BC leucippus of Miletus originated the atom concept. He and his pupil, Democritus of ab dera refined it for future use. Their atomic idea has five major points. All original writings of leucippus and Democritus are lost. The only sources we have for there atomistic ideas are in quotations from other writers. Democritus was known as the "laughing philosopher" because he enjoyed life so much. At this time Greek philosophy was about 150 years old, em...
  • Electron Energy Levels In The Atom
    4,008 words
    An atom is the smallest unit of matter that is recognizable as a chemical ELEMENT. Atoms of different elements may also combine into systems called MOLECULES, which are the smallest units of chemical COMPOUNDS. In all these ordinary processes, atoms may be considered as the ancient Greeks imagined them to be: the ultimate building blocks of matter. When stronger for cesare applied to atoms, however, the atoms may break up into smaller parts. Thus atoms are actually composites and not units, and ...
  • Ox O Anions Of Formula Mo 4
    1,694 words
    Hydrolysis of OxoanionsNonmetals in positive oxidation states do not exist in aqueous solution as cations but rather as hydroxides or oxides. These species often act as ox o acids which ionize to form in solution. The general form of an is MOxy-. Since these are quite different in their properties, Z 2/r ratios for nonmetal cations do not give accurate predictions of their chemical behavior. A different approach is needed to determine what these elements will do when they are dissolved in water....
  • Protons In The Nucleus Of The Atom
    594 words
    Atoms Atoms are the building blocks of matter. Everything around us is made up of atoms. The atom is more than a million times smaller than the thickness of a human hair. The smallest speck that can be seen under an ordinary microscope contains more than 10 billion atoms. Even though atoms are incredibly tiny, they are made up of even more minute particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons. These are called subatomic particles. Each element has a definite number of subatomic particles, which mak...
  • Atoms Of A Particular Element
    630 words
    Chapter Three Summary: Atoms and atom's structure Ancient Greek Philosophers suggested that matter was composed of individual particles, which was proved by the theory of John Dalton. The main provisions of his theory are: 1. All matter is composed of tiny, indivisible particles called atoms. 2. All atoms of a particular element are identical but the atoms of one element differ from the atoms of other element. 3. Atoms of different elements combine with each other in certain whole number proport...
  • Number Of Protons Their Atoms
    326 words
    33. Elements differ according to the number of protons their atoms contain, a value called the element's atomic number. All atoms of a given element have the same number of protons and an equal number of electrons. The number of neutrons in an atom is not predictable but is generally as great or greater than the number of protons. The total number of protons plus neutrons in an atom is called the atom's mass number. 40. Protons, electrons, and neutrons. Protons, neutrons (1 amu) and electrons 5 ...
