atom basic unit of matter
nucleus center of an atom
electron negatively charged ion
element each of more than one hundred substances that cannot be chemically interconverted or broken down into simpler substances
isotope each of two or more forms of the same element that contain equal numbers of protons but different numbers of neutrons in their nuclei
mas number the total number of protons and neutrons in a nucleus
atomic number the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom,
compound a thing that is composed of two or more separate elements
ionic bond the bonding between a non-metal and a metal, that occurs when charged atoms (ions) attract after one loses one or more of its electrons, and gives it to the other molecule, for example sodium and chlorine.
ion an atom or molecule with a net electric charge due to the loss or gain of one or more electrons.
covalent bond a chemical bond that involves the sharing of electron pairs between atoms.
molecule a group of atoms bonded together,
van der waals forces weak, short-range electrostatic attractive forces between uncharged molecules,
water H2O
hydrogen bond a weak bond between two molecules resulting from an electrostatic attraction between a proton in one molecule and an electronegative atom in the other.
