Drawing atoms

8/29/2011Objectives:Distinguish that homogenous mixtures are solutions and heterogeneous mixtures are colloids or suspensions.Interpret and create models (words or pictures) that represent atoms, molecules, elements, compounds, and mixtures at the particle level.Catalyst:Convert the following: 1. 0.25 km to nm2. 7.3 cL to L

Drawing atoms

Drawing Atoms

  • Atoms are the smallest unit of matter

  • They are too small to see except with the most powerful microscopes, so we draw them to help us understand

Drawing atoms

What do we call these things?

An Atom

3 Atoms

Drawing molecules

Drawing molecules

  • Molecules are groups of atoms that are joined together

  • These atoms can be of the same or different elements



  • All molecules are the same

    • Element: all atoms are the same

    • Compound: there are different atoms within the molecule, but each molecule is the same

Drawing atoms


This molecule is 2 atoms joined together but we don’t call it “2 atoms joined together” we say it is one molecule


This molecules is 4 atoms of two different types joined together to make a compound

Pure substances include

Pure substances include:

  • Elements are found on the periodic table

    • Some elements are: iron, gold, silver, aluminum, and carbon

  • Compounds are bonded groups of atoms

    • some basic compounds are: Carbon monoxide (CO), and carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O), hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).



  • Molecules are not all the same

Element vs compounds vs mixtures

Element vs.Compounds vs. mixtures


Single atom two different two or more

Or group of atoms joined molecule types

Same atoms *heterogenous

(looks different throughout)

*homogenous (looks the same throughout)

Drawing atoms

  • Many things we experience are mixtures of elements and compounds:

  • Heterogenous:

    • Coke (bubbles)

    • Milk (globs of fat)

    • Chocolate chip cookies (chocolate chips)

  • Homogenous:

    • Kool-Aid

    • The air

    • Vinegar

Homogenous v h eterogenous

Homogenous v. Heterogenous

Atoms/Molecules evenly spread throughout

Atoms/Molecules separated or “clumped”

Drawing atoms

atoms of one Element

Atoms of the same Element



Drawing atoms

Another element

A mixture of two elements

This one likes to go round in pairs as a gas (molecules)

Drawing atoms

This is not a mixture, it is a COMPOUND of two elements

This is just a mixture of two elements



  • Matter – anything that occupies space and has mass

  • Physical properties – properties that can be observed and measured without changing the chemical makeup of the substance

  • Density – mass of material within a given volume

  • Aqueous solution – a solution in which something is dissolved in water.



  • Mixture – combination of substances in which each substance retains its individual properties

  • Suspension – a mixture containing large, dispersed solid particles that can settle out or be separated by filtration

  • Colloid – a mixture containing solid particles small enough to remain suspended and not settle out

  • Tyndall effect – the scattering of a beam of light caused by reflection from suspended particles



  • Solution – a homogeneous mixture of two or more substances

  • Solvent – the thing doing the dissolving

  • Solute – the thing getting dissolved
