The molecular constitution hypothesis--that a molecule is a suite of atoms associated by means of a community of bonds-- offers the imperative technique of ordering and classifying observations in chemistry. despite the fact that this speculation isn't really comparable on to the physics which governs the motions of atomic nuclei and electrons.

You must recall here that ? Chapter 4: Surveying the Periodic Table of the Elements Answers to Questions on the Periodic Table Here are the answers to the practice problems in this chapter. Pat yourself on the back, whether in congratulation or consolation. 1 Metals are found to the left of the staircase, with the exception of hydrogen, and nonmetals are found to the right of the staircase. Several elements adjoining the staircase are classified as metalloids. bismuth (Bi) = metal 2 The noble gases are described as “noble” because they seem to consider it beneath themselves to react with other elements.
Group IA (alkali metal) elements lose one electron. Group IIA (alkaline earth metal) elements lose two electrons. Things get unpredictable in the transition metal region but follow a pattern once more with the nonmetals. Group VIIA (halogen) elements gain one electron. Group VIA elements tend to gain two electrons, and group VA elements tend to gain three electrons. In short, elements tend to lose or gain as many electrons as necessary to have valence shells resembling the elements in group VIIIA, the noble gases.
Because protons and neutrons have a mass of 1 amu each (as you find out earlier in this chapter), the mass number equals the sum of the numbers of protons and neutrons: Why, you may wonder, don’t we care about the mass of the electrons? Is some sort of of the mass of a insidious subatomic particle-ism afoot? No. An electron has only proton or neutron, so to make mass numbers nice and even, chemists have decided to conveniently forget that electrons have mass. Although this assumption is not, well, true, the contributions of electrons to the mass of an atom are so small that the assumption is usually harmless.
