Amphoteric compound Another name for Amphiprotic compounds
Amplitude (light) A measure of the height of the crests or the depth of the troughs on a wave
Anion A negative ion
Anode The electrode at which oxidation occurs
Atom The smallest chemical unit of matter

Bent A molecular shape in which a central atom is Bonded to two other atoms. The bond are 105 degrees apart.
Boiling The process a substance changes from its liquid phase to its to its gas phase.
Boiling point The temperature at which the vapor pressure of a liquid is equal to normal atmospheric pressure.
Boiling-point elevation When a solute is dissolved in a solvent, the boiling point of the solution will be higher than that of the pure solvent.
Bond energy The energy required to break a bond
Boyle's Law At constant temperature, the pressure and volume of a gas are inversely related.
