- a substance that cannot be broken down, or converted, to a simpler substance by ordinary chemical means.
- a region within which electrons orbit that corresponds to a fixed energy level at a given distance from the atomic nucleus of an atom.
- a charged atom or molecule; an atom or molecule that has either an excess of electrons (and hence is negatively charged) or has lost electrons (and is positively charged).
- a particle composed of one or more atoms held together by chemical bonds; the smallest particle of a compound that displays all the properties of that compound.
4 True/False questions
pH scale → a scale, with values from 0 to 14, used for measuring the relative acidity of a solution; at pH 7 a solution is neutral, pH 0 to 7 is acidic, and pH 7 to 14 is basic; each unit on the scale represents a tenfold change in concentration.
solvent → a substance that cannot be broken down, or converted, to a simpler substance by ordinary chemical means.
hydrogen bond → the weak attraction between a hydrogen atom that bears a partial positive charge (due to polar covalent bonding with another atom) and another atom, normally oxygen or nitrogen, that bears a partial negative charge; hydrogen bonds may form between atoms of a single molecule or of different molecules.
polar covalent bond → a covalent bond with equal sharing of electrons.
