ATOMS AND ELEMENTS CHAPTER 2 • Read Chapter 2. • Study all examples and complete all exercises.
Chapter 2 Outline • Discovery of the three atomic particles • Isotopes • Periodic Table • Groups and Periods
Origins of the Atomic Theory • John Dalton-1803 • Law of Conservation of Matter • Law of Definite Proportions Water is always H2O not HO • Law of Multiple Proportions SO2 and SO3
Dalton’s Atomic Theory 1. All matter is composed of atoms. 2. Atoms of an element are alike, atoms of different elements are different. 3. Atoms cannot be created, destroyed, subdivided, or converted into atoms of another element. 4. A compound is formed when different atoms combine in fixed, simple, whole-number ratio. 5. A chemical change is a rearrangement of atoms.
Radioactivity • One of the pieces of evidence for the fact that atoms are made of smaller particles came from the work of Marie Curie(1876-1934). • She discovered radioactivity, the spontaneous disintegration of some elements into smaller pieces. Alpha, a, mass 4 amu, charge +2 Beta, b, mass 1/1500 amu, charge -1 Gamma, g, no mass, no charge
ATOMIC COMPOSITION • Protons ( p, p+) • + electrical charge • mass = 1.672623 x 10-24 g • relative mass = 1.007 atomic mass units (amu) • Electrons ( e, e-) • negative electrical charge • relative mass = 0.0005 amu • Neutrons ( n, n0) • no electrical charge • mass = 1.009 amu
ATOM COMPOSITION • Protons and neutrons are in the nucleus. • The number of electrons is equal to the number of protons. • Electrons in space around the nucleus. • Atoms are extremely small. • One teaspoon of water has 3 times as many atoms as the Atlantic Ocean has teaspoons of water. The atom is mostly empty space.
Themodern view of the atom was developed byErnest Rutherford(1871-1937).

Mass Number, A C atom with 6 protons and 6 neutrons is the mass standard = 12 atomic mass units, amu Mass Number = # protons + # neutrons A Boron atom can have A = 5 p + 5 n = 10 B A 10 5 Z
11B 10B Isotopes • Atoms of the same element (same Z) but different mass number (A). • Boron-10 (10B) has 5 p and 5 n • Boron-11 (11B) has 5 p and 6 n

11B 10B Isotopes • Because of the existence of isotopes, the mass of a collection of atoms has an average value. • Average mass = ATOMIC WEIGHT • Boron is 19.91% 10B and 80.09% 11B. That is, 11B is 80.09 percent abundant on earth. • For boron atomic weight (mass) = 0.1991 (10.01 amu) + 0.8009 (11.01 amu) = 10.811 amu
