Physical and Chemical Changes. Elements Compounds Mixtures

All reaction in Chemistry can be divided into two types of changes: Physical or Chemical. Physical Change: ! new substance is formed. "hese changes are easily reversible or temporary. An example is dissolving salt in water. !ther examples of physical change include: melting, boiling, mixing 2 solids or liquids.

Physical and Chemical Changes

Physical and Chemical Changes

Chemical Change:
A NEW substance is formed. "hese changes are irreversible or permanent. "he new substance formed will have di erent properties compared to its original elements. #E.g. different melting and different chemical reactions from the original substance.$

Physical and Chemical Changes

!ne can recogni%e a chemical change from 2 observations: "he new substance has a di erent appearance, such as different color or different physical state. An example is the electrolysis of water. &eason: Electrolysis of water produces two new substances, 'ydrogen gas and oxygen gas. 'ydrogen and oxygen are both gases but water is a li(uid. ! lot o heat is given out in a chemical changes. Chemical changes are called chemical reactions.

5efinition of an element: An element is a pure substance which cannot be split up into two or more simpler substances by chemical means.
Sugar is not an element as it can be broken down into carbon and water.

ote that an element: Consists of only one 3ind of atom, Cannot be bro3en down into a simpler type of matter by either physical or chemical means Can exist as either atoms #e.g. argon$ or molecules #e.g., nitrogen$.

Examples of elements
Elements are made up of tiny particles Elements can be further classified into two groups:

What is an atom?
Examples of models of atoms:

'ydrogen atom

1odium atom

Chlorine atom

Very few elements exists as atoms besides elements such as helium and neon.
For example, hydrogen is H2.

Most elements exist as molecules.

O one is O!.

Hydrogen "H2# is a diatomic molecule.

$olecules consisting of a few atoms are called polyatomic molecules.

O one "O!# is a triatomic molecule.

Classi ication o Elements * Metals and Non+metals

There are two ma*or groups of elements + metals and non-metals. )ron is a metal. Oxygen is a non,metal. $etals and non,metals are grouped separately on the Periodic Table. There are some elements called metalloids which beha-e li.e both metals and non,metals.

Eixed Composition of Compounds

A compound is made up of different elements chemically combined in a "ixed ratio. For example, water "H2O# is a compound made only by *oining together two atoms of hydrogen to one atom of oxygen. That is, the ratio of hydrogen atoms to oxygen atoms in water is always 2 !.

A compound can be represented by a chemical "ormula. The chemical formula states / the types of atoms "i.e. elements# in the compound, / the ratio of the different atoms in the compound. Types of atoms0 hydrogen, oxygen #atio of H to O 1 202

'ow do we write chemical formula? &ule C

The number of atoms is written as a subscript, to the right of the atom3s symbol.
