Atomic number/ number of protons
How is the periodic table organized?
Metals, Nonmetals, and Metalliods

The basic unit of a chemical element.
amu-atomic mass unit
What is the unit of measurement used for atomic particles?
the atomic number
What is the number of protons equal to?
The Mass Number
What is the number of protons and neutrons added together in the nucleus of the atom?
repeated in a pattern
What does periodic mean?
Russian, Dmitri Mendeleev
Who discovered the pattern of atomic masses?
what does a period represent?
how much energy does period-1 have for that row?
Small, dense, POSITIVELY CHARGED, center of the atom, contains most of the atoms mass.
protons, and electrons
What does the atomic number tell you?
Represents the most likely location of an electron, electrons move very fast.
closer to the nucleus
lower energy level
farther from the nucleus
higher energy level
Isotopes of an element have the same atomic number, and number of protons, but different mass, and number of neutrons.
Explain how the isotope of an element is alike and how are they different?
mass number minus atomic number
How do you find the number of neutrons?
it becomes a completely different atom, with different porperties.
What happens when the number of protons in an atom changes?
He had the atomic theory of matter. All elements are made of atoms, you can not split an atom. Atoms, compounds, and elements.
Discovered the electron. Worked with a gas discharge tube when he discovered the cathode ray.
He used a gold foil to study particle movement. He found that atoms were mostly empty space. He knew the nucleus was positive because it repelled.
Created a model of an atom. Studied electron levels.
Different elements, 2 or more
What are compounds made of?
Negatively charged particles
What are cathode rays made of?
Different energy levels
How do electrons in the same atom differ?
Would an electron have to absorb or release energy to jump from the second energy level to the third energy level?
