Electromagnetic spectrum The total range of wavelengths of light that come from the sun
Electron One of the three particles that make up the atom - it is negatively charged and orbits the nucleus of the atom
Electron configuration A notation that lists the number of electrons that occupy each orbital in an atom
Electron-dot diagram Another name for a Lewis structure
Electronegativity A measure of how strongly an atom attracts extra electrons to itself
Element Any substance that cannot be decomposed into less massive substances
Empirical formula A chemical formula that tells you a simple, whole-number ratio for the atom in a molecule
Endothermic process A process that absorbs heat
Endpoint of the titration The point in a titration where the acid and base has completely reacted with each other, it is usually accompanied by an indicator's change in color
Energy The ability to do work
Energy diagram A diagram that shows the energy of the reactants, intermediate state, and products in a chemical reaction
Enthalpy of information (〖∆H〗_f) The ∆H of a formation reaction
Entropy A measure of the disorder that exists in any system
Equilibrium constant A value that describes the concentrations at which a reaction comes to equilibrium, varies with temperature.
Excess reactant The reactant or reactants that are left over at the end of a chemical reaction
Exothermic process A process that releases heat

Freezing-point depression When a solution is dissolved in a solvent, the freezing point of the solution will be lower than that of the pure solvent
Frequency The number of wave crests (or troughs) that pass a given point each second
Galvanic cell An electricity-producing cell that runs on a redox reaction
Gay-Lussac's Law The stoichiometric coefficients in a chemical equation relate the volumes of gases in the equation as well as the number of moles of substance in the equation
