Haralson -Honors

the trends and behaviors of chemicals are displayed in patterns on the periodic table. this is called ____ ____.

chemical periodicity

elements in the same group generally have _____ chemical properties


____ was the first chemist to organize the periodic table in a way where patterns & chemical and physical properties can be predicted


what are some types of characteristics that can be predicted of an element based on its location on the periodic table?

color, atomic weight, density, Specific heat capacity, melting point ect.

_____ a British physicist arranged the elements in order according to increasing atomic number


two things that influence the attraction the electron has for the nucleus are:

distance e⁻ is from the nucleus
effective nuclear charge ( Zeff)

the closer the electron is to the ____ the stronger the attraction is.


electrons in lower energy levels have a ____ pull towards the nucleus


electrons in the SAME energy level do not __ one another; making on have a stronger pull onto the nucleus than the other.


the core electrons shield the valence electrons from filling the full attraction of the positive nucleus of the atom which is called the ____ _____.

shielding effect

(T/F) electrons with the same principle quantum number also shield each other, but to a very small extent; therefore they are ignored when looking at Zeff


Zeff ___ as you move across the period because the shielding constant remains constant since the core electrons are not increasing.


the ____ ____ is one-half of the distance between the covalently bonded nuclei

atomic radius

the bonding atomic radius ____ as you move down a group


Atomic Radius _____ as you move across a period


atoms get ____ as you move across a period because the shielding constant remains constant and the Effective nuclear charge (Zeff) increases, therefore the electrons are getting pulled ___ to the nucleus

smaller, closer

the ionic size depends on:

nuclear charge
the orbital in which the valence electrons reside

cations are smaller/larger than the their parent atom


anions are smaller/larger than their parent atoms


ions increase/decrease in size as you go down a column on the periodic table


______ ions have the same number of electrons


cations will always be smaller/larger than the anions as you move across period


ionic size ______ with an increasing nuclear charge


the amount of energy required to move an electron from the ground state of a gaseous atom or ion is explained in the ______ process


it requires ______ energy to remove each successive electron in the endothermic process


(T/F)as you start removing electrons from the orbital there is a higher proton to electron ration, therefore the remaining electrons are getting pulled in harder by the nucleus.


once the atom reaches the electron configuration of a _____ ____, the ionization energy becomes extremely large b/c of the stable electron configuration

noble gas

as one goes down a row on the periodic table ____ energy is required to remove an electron.


as one goes across an row on the periodic table it takes ____ energy to remove an electron.


what are 2 exceptions to the ionization energy trends?

the 3A family
the 6A family

__________ is the tendency for an atom to attract electrons to itself when it is chemically combined with another element


an atom with a ___ electronegativity with pull harder on a shared bonding electron. an atom with a ___ electronegativity will not pull as hard on the shared bonging electrons

larger, smaller

electronegativity ____ as you go across a the periodic table and _____ as you go down the periodic table.

increases, decreases

the most commonly used electronegativity scale is the ____ scale


how does the Pauling scale characterize each element/

on a number system from 0-4 (0 being the noble gasses with the lowest electronegativity, and the elements with the strongest electronegativity at 4)

_____ is an example of an element with the largest Pauling number of 4.


(T/F) the difference in the electronegativities of two elements can be used to predict the nature of the chemical bond


what are the 3 typs of bonds?

nonpolar covalent
polar covalent

which bond has the property of equal sharing of electrons?

nonpolar covalent

which type of bond is characterized with the unequal sharing of electrons?

polar covalent

which type of bond is characterized by the full transfer of the electron?


if the difference of the two atoms' pauling numbers is zero what type of bond will it be?

nonpolar covalent

if the difference of the two atoms' pauling numbers is greater than or equal to 2 what type of bond will it be?


if the difference of the two atoms' pauling numbers is between 0 and 2 what type of bond will it be?

polar covalent

increasing difference in electronegativity:
_____ --> ______ --> ______
(fill in the blank with: ionic, nonpolar covalent, and polar covalent)

nonpolar- polar- ionic

______ ____ are the outer energy level electrons of an atom. the valence electrons are teh electrons that participate in the chemical bonding.

valence electrons

the ___ ____ states that atoms tend to combine in such a way that they each have 8 valence electrons

octet rule

atoms react to achieve ___ ___ configuration

noble gas

what are the 2 types of compounds?

molecular and ionic

_____ compounds are made up of nonmetals trying to achieve their octet by sharing their electrons.


_____ compounds are made up of a metal cation and a nonmetal anion.


metal cations will acieve their octets by ____ valence electrons.


nonmetal ions will obtain its octet by ____ valence electrons.


_____ ions are ions from halogens that gain electrons to acheve their octet


the bond where metal cations and nonmetal anions are held together by opposite charges


ionic compounds are called ____


the simplest ratio of ionic compounds is called the _____ ____.

formula unit

electrons are transferred/gained with the goal of:

achieveing noble gas electron configuration.

ionic compounds have a _____ structure and are usually solids


ions are (weakly/strongly) bonded together


ionic compounds have ___ melting points


what must you do to melt an ionic compound?

all the ionic bonds must be broken in order for the cations and anions to float around

electrical ____ will occur when charges are free to move around


(T/F) ionic solids are insulators


melted ionic compounds (conduct/don't conduct) electricity


what must you do to an ionic compound to get them to conduct?

melt them

metal atoms are held together in the solid state by _______ bonds


metals have a very (weak/strong) hold on their valence electrons


how would you describe a metallic bond?

b) ductile (can be drawn into wires)
c) purple

a & b

both malleability and ductility explain in terms the ____ of the valence electrons


(T/F) ionic solids are rough

False- they are brittle (strong repulsion can break them apart)
