Chemistry Vocab

Atom This is the Smallest piece of matter that has the same properties of the element it is in.
Proton This is a Positive (+) subatomic particle in atoms nucleus. This is the identity of the element and atomic number.
Neutron This is a Neutral subatomic particle from the atoms nucleus. It has no charge and most of its mass.
Electron This is a Negative (-) subatomic particle spinning outside the nucleus of an atom. Tiny!
Element This is the Simplest form of matter that contain only one type of atom.
Periodic Table of Elements This is a Chart that organizes all elements by atomic number and properties.
Valence Electron This is the Electron in the outer level of an atom that causes atoms to band together.
Chemical Bond A interaction that holds 2 atoms together.
Chemical Bonding The joining of atoms to form new substances.
Ionic Bond Is formed when electrons are transferred from one atom to another.
Ion Charged particle or atom that gained or lost electrons.
Crystal Lattice Repeating 3 dimensional patterns that forms when ions bond.
Covalent Bond The type of bond that forms when atoms share electrons instead of transferring.
Metallic Bond A special bond between metal ions and the electrons that swim around them.
Malleability Metals can be pounded into thin sheets.
