Objectives

Objectives

  • To understand and illustrate the Law of Constant Composition

  • To learn about Dalton’s theory of atoms

  • To learn how a formula describes a compound’s composition

Dalton Intro


Objectives

  • A given compound always contains the same proportion by mass of the elements of which it is composed.

    • A mixture can have variable composition but the composition of a compound is fixed

    • Does this give us a clue about the nature of matter?

Law of Constant Composition (1799 Joseph Louis Proust)


Dalton s atomic theory john dalton 1766 1844

Dalton’s Atomic Theory (John Dalton 1766-1844)

  • Dalton’s Atomic Theory states:

    • All elements are composed of atoms

    • All atoms of a given element are identical

    • Atoms of different elements are different

    • Compounds consist of combinations of atoms of different elements

    • Atoms are not created or destroyed in a chemical reaction

You have 90 seconds to memorize these 5 parts of the theory!!


Formulas of compounds

Formulas of Compounds

  • A compound is represented by a chemical formula in which the number and kind of atoms present is shown by using the element symbols and subscripts.

  • Example: the simple sugar, glucose


Objectives

Put your notes away and write a set of rules for how to write a formula of a compound. Be as complete as you can be using what you have learned throughout your course


B formulas of compounds

B. Formulas of Compounds

  • Each atom present is represented by its element symbol.

  • The number of each type of atom is indicated by a subscript written to the right of the element symbol.

  • When only one atom of a given type is present, the subscript 1 is not written.

  • Write a metallic element first if present (MgCl2)

  • Write the central atom of a molecule first (PCl5)

  • Write Carbon first and Hydrogen second for an organic molecule (C6H12O6)


Formulas of compounds1

Formulas of compounds

  • Write the formulas for the following compounds:

    • A phosphorus atom bonded to three chlorine atoms

    • A molecule containing two boron atoms and six hydrogen atoms

    • A compound containing one calcium atom for every two chlorine atoms

    • Four hydrogen atoms bonded to a single carbon atom

    • A compound containing two iron atoms for every three oxygen atoms

    • A molecule of aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid – four oxygen atoms, eight hydrogen, nine carbon atoms)


Objectives

Aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid, C9H8O4
