This week we finished ionic bonding notes, have erarly release on Wed. and a test on Friday.  Thursday is review.

Test will include: 
diatomis molecules, stable and reactive atoms, symbols, names and numbers of assigned 25 elelments, mixtures, solutions, states of matter, elements as pure substances, physical and chemical properties and changes, covalent and ionic bonding, density, viscosity, valence electrons, dot configuration, energy levels, Bohr drawings, surface temperature 


Project is due 9/13


August 22-25
Monday element quiz, density lab, discuss Friday's quiz,

An atom is the building block of matter.

Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space.

 

An element is a pure substance that cannot be broken down by physical or chemical means.

 

State of matter is one of four (liquid, gas, solid, or plasma) that matter takes the form of dependant on the temperature of the substance.

 

Metric Conversion  King Henry died by drinking chocolate milk

King =kilo,

Henry=hecto,  

died=deka )(da),

by=base unit (distance-meter  abrev-m,  mass is measured in grams (abrev g) and volume is liters (abrev l)

drinking-deci (d)
