OAT - Chem

Chapter 2 - Periodic Table

rows on periodic table periods
columns on periodic table groups
representative elements valence electrons are in s and p subshells
Nonrepresentative elements includes transition elements; valence electrons are in d subshells too
Atomic Radius trend Period: decreases cuz elements hold on to their electrons tighter Group: increases bcuz new outer layers make elements bigger
Ionization E E required to remove an electron from a gaseous atom or ion
Ionization E Trend Period: increases cuz it gets harder to take an electron from the element since the electrons are more tightly bound Group: decreases bcuz electrons are farther from nucleus making it easier to remove them
Electron Affinity the ease with which an atom can accept an electron
Electron Affinity Trend Period: Increases cuz halogens really want one more electron to fill octet Group:
Electronegativity measure of the attraction an atom has for electrons in a chemical bond
Electronegativity Trend Period: increases (F is most electronegative) cuz halogens really want extra electron to fill octet Group: decreases
malleability ability of a metal to be hammered into shapes
ductility ability of a metal to be drawn into wires
metals on left side and in middle of PT; good heat/electricity conductors; electrons can be removed easily
Nonmetals right side of PT; poor conductors; high electronegativity and ionization E; gain electrons easily
Metalloids semimetals; B Si As Te Ge Sb
Alkali Group 1 metals; react with Halogens well, low electroneg, low IE, high atomic radius, 1 e-
Alkaline Group 2 metals; low electroneg and IE, smaller radius than alkali, 2 e-
Halogens Group 7, highly reactive, 7 e-, high electroneg and IE, small atomic radius
Noble Gases Group 8, nonreactive, full octets, no electroneg, super high IE
Transition Metals d-block, hard, high mp and bp, low IE, positive oxidation states
Oxidation States ability of an atom to oxidize/reduce another atom in chemical compound, related to e- gained, lost, or used

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
