When the two atoms come together they interact and can also repel, but become attracted to the protons inside the atoms. The different types of chemical bonds include ionic bond, non-polar covalent bond, polar covalent bond, and network covalent bond. The first unknown substance is sand and the formula of sand is SiO2. The type of bonding for sand is network covalent. This type of bond is one of the strongest intermolecular forces and occurs when many atoms are bonded in a network.
Alkali Metals- Group 1 (IA) The alkali metals make up Group 1 of the periodic table. This family consists of the elements lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium, and francium (Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs, and Fr, respectively). Group one elements share common characteristics. They are all soft, silver metals. Due to their low ionization energy, these metals have low melting points and are highly reactive.
DISPERSION FORCE / LONDON FORCE The London dispersion force is the weakest intermolecular force. The London dispersion force is a temporary attractive force that results when the electrons in two adjacent atoms occupy positions that make the atoms form temporary dipoles. This force is sometimes called an induced dipole-induced dipole attraction. London forces are the attractive forces that cause nonpolar substances to condense to liquids and to freeze into solids when the temperature is lowered sufficiently. Because of the constant motion of the electrons, an atom or molecule can develop a temporary (instantaneous) dipole when its electrons are distributed unsymmetrically about the nucleus.
It is a weak bond, but is decisive in controlling the structure of both water and ice. In a water molecule, two hydrogen atom are bonded to an oxygen atom share a pair of electrons between them by a covalent bond. In H2O, only two of the six outer-shell electrons of oxygen are used for this purpose, leaving four electrons which are organized into two non-bonding pairs. Salts are ionic compounds that result from the neutralisation reaction of an acid and an alkali. They are composed of an equal number of cations and anions so that the product is electrically neutral.
With a density of density 0.89990 g/liter. The freezing point of neon is -248.67° C, and the boiling point of neon is -246.048° C, which is even lower than the boiling point of nitrogen (-195.8°C). When under low pressure, neon emits a bright orange-red glow if a small electric current is passed through it. The electron configuration of neon is 1s22s22p6. The chemical properties of neon include the fact that it is not reactive because it has a full outer shell, and therefore cannot gain or lose any electrons.
Nuclear forces are small-distance forces and have to act against the electrostatic forces where positively charged nuclei repel each other. This is the reason why nuclear fusion reactions occur mostly in high density, high temperature environment. Both nuclear fusion and fission have similar characteristics. Such as both fission and fusion nuclear reactions are chain reactions. A nuclear chain reaction occurs when one nuclear reaction causes an average of one or more nuclear reactions, thus leading to a self-propagating number of
Physical Properties: Teflon is a white solid at room temperature, with a density of about 2.2g/cm3 and a melting point of 327° C (620.6° F). The coefficient of friction is 0.1 or less, making it the second lowest of any known solid material. Teflon’s resistance to van der Waals forces means that is the only known surface to which a gecko cannot stick. Teflon is also used in insulating cables due to its excellent dielectric properties. Intermolecular
Atoms consist of a positively charged nucleus with negatively charged electrons surrounding it. An ion is an atom or group of, that have lost an electron or more, making it even more charged and more reactive. A molecule is a particle of two or more atoms held by chemical bonds. Its the smallest of units and exists independently. C. Define the term nutrient, and outline the main groups of nutrients.
Mass Spectrometry According to R.William, in order to measure the characteristics of individual molecules, a mass spectrometer converts them to ions so that they can roam about and be manipulated by external electrical and magnetic fields. Since ions are very reactive and short-lived, their formation and manipulation must be conducted in vacuum. Atmospheric pressure must be around 760 torr (mm of mercury). The pressure under which ions may be handled is roughly 10-5 to 10-8 torr (less than a billionth of an atmosphere). In one common procedure, ionization is affected by a high energy beam of electrons and ion separation is achieved by accelerating and focusing the ions in a beam, which is then bent by an external magnetic field.
This means they contain two protons and two neutrons. They are relatively large particles so they move slowly and do not penetrate materials very easily: they can be stopped by a sheet of paper. If they do collide with other particles they can cause ionization i.e. they can knock electrons out of atoms, leaving an ion behind. The alpha particles are relatively large and heavy.
