Exam Study Guide

The indentification of the components and composition of materials. Analytical Chemistry
Research carried out for the sake of gaining knowledge, such as how and why a specific reaction occurs and what the properties of a substance are. Basic Research
A substance that can be broken down into simple stable substances. Each is made from the atoms of two or more elements that are chemnically bonded. Compound
Properties that depend on the amount of matter that is present. Extensive Properties
Matter in what state has a definite volume but an indefinite state? Liquid
Mixtures that are uniform in composition. Also called solutions Homogeneous
A substance's ability to undergo changes that transform into different substances. Chemical Property
The closeness of a set of measurements of the same quantity measured. Accuracy
A change in which one or more substances are converted into different substances. Chemical change
A specific portion of matter in a given region of space that has been selected for study during an experiment or observation System
The transformation of a substance or substances into one or more new substances Chemical Reaction
States that mass is neither created nor destroyed during ordinary chemical reactions or physical changes Law of conservation of mass
Forces that hold nuclear particles together Nuclear Forces
Number of protons of each atom of that element Atomic number
Atoms of the same element that have different masses Isotopes
The sponaneous disintegration of a nucleus into a slightly lighter nucleus, accompanied by emission of particles, electromagnetic radiation, or both. Radioactive Decay
Particles or electromagnetic radiation emitted from the nucleus during radioactive decay. Nuclear Radiation
The time required for half the atoms of a radioactive nuclide to decay. Half-Life
The total number of protons and neutrons that make up the nucleus of an isotope. Mass Number
The weighted average of the atomic masses of the naturally occuring isotopes of an element Average Atomic Mass
Two quantities are ? to each other if their product is constant Inversely Proportional
A measurement consists of all the digits known with certainty plus one final digit, which is somewhat uncertain or estimated Significant Figures
Calculated by subtracting the accepted value from the experimental value, dividing the difference by the accepted value, then multiplying by 100. Percentage Error
The closeness of measurements to the correct or accepted value of the quantity measured Accuracy
The ratio of mass to volume, or mass divided by volume Density
