  • Daltons Atomic Theory (1808) Elements are composed of extremely small particles called atoms. All atoms of a given element are identical, having the same size, mass and chemical properties. The atoms of one element are different from the atoms of all other elements.Compounds are composed of atoms of more than one element. In any compound, the ratio of the numbers of atoms of any two of the elements present is either an integer or a simple fraction.A chemical reaction involves only the separation, combination, or rearrangement of atoms; it does not result in their creation or destruction.2.1

  • Atomic number (Z) = number of protons in nucleus Mass number (A) = number of protons + number of neutrons = atomic number (Z) + number of neutronsIsotopes are atoms of the same element (X) with different numbers of neutrons in their nuclei2.3Atomic number, Mass number and Isotopes

  • An ion is an atom, or group of atoms, that has a net positive or negative charge.cation ion with a positive chargeIf a neutral atom loses one or more electronsit becomes a cation.anion ion with a negative chargeIf a neutral atom gains one or more electronsit becomes an anion.2.5
