of physics and chemistry 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Concept 2.1: Matter consists of chemical elements in pure form and in combinations called compounds Chemistry: study of matter Matter: anything that takes up space and has weight or mass; Made up of elements Elements: pure substances that can not be broken down further 92 naturally occurring elements Listed in Periodic Table of Elements C, Na, Ca 25 elements required for life 96% of life made of COHN 2016 Pearson Education, Inc.

Compound: a substance consisting of two or more elements in a fixed ratio It has emergent properties: characteristics different from those of its elements Sodium 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Chlorine Sodium chloride The Elements of Life Trace elements: required in only tiny quantities E.g. In vertebrates, iodine (I) is required for normal activity of the thyroid gland In humans, an iodine deficiency can cause goiter

2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Table 2.1 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. ATOMS Elements are made up of tiny units called atoms the smallest complete unit of an element Atoms contain 3 smaller units called subatomic particles Subatomic particle symbol charge Proton p+ +1 each 1d Neutron n

Radioactive isotopes: are unstable and give off particles and energy as radioactivity Some applications of radioactive isotopes in biological research are: Dating fossils Tracing atoms through metabolic processes Diagnosing medical disorders 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. e- orbit nucleus in regions called orbitals

ORBITALS AND SHELLS 7 energy levels or electron shells Corresponds to 7 periods of Periodic Table Figure 2.5 (a) A ball bouncing down a flight of stairs can come to rest only on each step, not between steps. Third shell (highest energy level in this model) Second shell (higher energy level) First shell (lowest energy level)

Elements in a row (period) are in the same outermost energy level READING THE PERIODIC TABLE Valence shell = outermost energy level Valence electrons are those that occupy the valence shell

All elements in 2nd energy level have 3 to 10 e- each; but dont forget that 1st shell has 2 e- Elements in a column are called a group. Same # e- in outermost/valence shell PERIODIC TABLE Noble elements He (2e-) Ne (10e-) Ar (18e-) All inert; Valence shells are filled; happy QUICK CHECK

Atoms can combine to form molecules linked by chemical bonds. CHEMICAL BONDS Molecule: A substance made up of 2 or more atoms Chemical bond: attractions when atoms fill each others valence shell What determines chemical bonding? e- in valence shell (outermost) Atoms try to complete each others valence shells 3 Types of Chemical Bonds:

Covalent: polar and nonpolar Hydrogen Ionic Covalent Bonds Formed by sharing 1 or more pairs of valence electrons; Very strong bond

Tends to be groups closer to the middle of the Periodic Table Valence: bonding capacity of an atom; number of covalent bonds needed to complete outer valence shell; # of holes H-H Structural formula H2 Molecular Valence for H = 1, O = 2; N = 3; C = 4 Atoms try to complete each others valence shells (fill it

to max) 1st shell = 2e2nd shell = 8 more e3rd shell = 8 more e In a structural formula, a single bond, the sharing of one pair of electrons, is indicated by a single line between the atoms For example, HH A double bond, the sharing of two pairs of electrons, is indicated by a double line between atoms For example, O=O 2016 Pearson Education, Inc.

Atoms in a molecule attract electrons to varying degrees Electronegativity : an atoms ability to attract and hold shared electrons The more electronegative an atom, the more strongly it pulls shared electrons toward itself O >>>H..think H2O (water) O>>>C..think CO2 (carbon dioxide) N>>>H..think NH3 (ammonia) C = Hthink CH4 (methane) 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. NONPOLAR COVALENT BOND Nonpolar Covalent Bonds: formed by equal sharing of electrons nonpolar = nonpulling

Both atoms are equally electronegative Molecule has no charge H2, O2, Cl2, CH4 Gasoline, fat, grease, butter POLAR COVALENT BONDS Polar Covalent Bonds: formed by large differences in electronegativity Unequal sharing (polar = pulling) Creates partial + and - changes Bonds inside of H O NH CO 2 3, 2

H2O Temperature and Heat Kinetic energy is the energy of motion Thermal energy is a measure of the total amount of kinetic energy due to molecular motion Temperature represents the average kinetic energy of molecules Thermal energy in transfer from one body of matter to another is defined as heat 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. A calorie (cal) is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 g of water by 1C The calories on food packages are actually kilocalories (kcal), where 1 kcal 1,000 cal The joule (J) is another unit of energy, where

1 J 0.239 cal, or 1 cal 4.184 J 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Waters High Specific Heat The specific heat of a substance is the amount of heat that must be absorbed or lost for 1 g of that substance to change its temperature by 1C The specific heat of water is 1 cal/(g C) Water resists changing its temperature because of its high specific heat 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Waters high specific heat can be traced to hydrogen bonding Heat is absorbed when hydrogen bonds break Heat is released when hydrogen bonds form

The high specific heat of water keeps temperature fluctuations within limits that permit life 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 2.19 Burbank Santa Barbara 73 Los Angeles 90 (Airport) 75 70s (F) 80s

Evaporative Cooling Evaporation (vaporization) is transformation of a substance from liquid to gas Heat of vaporization is the heat a liquid must absorb for 1 g to be converted to gas As a liquid evaporates, its remaining surface cools, a process called evaporative cooling Evaporative cooling of water helps stabilize temperatures in bodies or water and organisms 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Floating of Ice on Liquid Water Ice floats in liquid water because hydrogen bonds in ice are more ordered, making ice less dense Water reaches its greatest density at 4C If ice sank, all bodies of water would eventually

freeze solid, making life impossible on Earth 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 2.20 Hydrogen bond Liquid water: Hydrogen bonds break and re-form Ice: Hydrogen bonds are stable 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Water: The Solvent of Life

A solution is a liquid that is a homogeneous mixture of substances A solvent is the dissolving agent of a solution The solute is the substance that is dissolved An aqueous solution is one in which water is the solvent Water is a versatile solvent due to its polarity, which allows it to form hydrogen bonds easily When an ionic compound is dissolved in water, each ion is surrounded by a sphere of water molecules called a hydration shell 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 2.21 Na

Na Cl 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Cl Acids and Bases Sometimes a hydrogen ion (H) is transferred from one water molecule to another, leaving behind a hydroxide ion (OH) The proton (H) binds to the other water molecule, forming a hydronium ion (H3O) By convention, H is used to represent the hydronium ion 2016 Pearson Education, Inc.

H A strong acid like hydrochloric acid, HCl, dissociates completely into H and Cl in water: HCl H Cl Ammonia, NH3, acts as a relatively weak base when it attracts a hydrogen ion from the solution and forms ammonium, NH4 This is a reversible reaction, as shown by the double arrows: 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Sodium hydroxide, NaOH, acts as a strong base indirectly by dissociating completely to form hydroxide ions: NaOH Na OH The hydroxide ions then combine with hydrogen

ions to form water 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Weak acids act reversibly and accept back hydrogen ions Carbonic acid, H2CO3, acts as a weak acid: 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. The pH Scale In any aqueous solution at 25C, the product of H and OH is constant and can be written as [H][OH] = 1014 The pH of a solution is defined as the negative logarithm of H concentration, written as pH = log [H] For a neutral aqueous solution, [H] is 107 M, so

Acidification: A Threat to Our Oceans Human activities such as burning fossil fuels threaten water quality CO2 is a product of fossil fuel combustion About 25% of human-generated CO2 is absorbed by the oceans CO2 dissolved in seawater forms carbonic acid; this causes ocean acidification 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. As seawater acidifies, hydrogen ions combine with carbonate ions to form bicarbonate ions (HCO3) It is predicted that carbonate ion concentrations

will decline by 40% by the year 2100 This is a concern because organisms that build coral reefs or shells require carbonate ions 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 2.24 CO2 CO2 H2O H2CO3 H2CO3 H HCO3 H CO32
