No two electrons in same atom can have the same set of four quantum numbers.
The percentage of atoms in a naturally occurring sample of the pure element that are a particular isotope.
An expression of the accuracy of a measurement, standardized to how large the measurement is.
The ratio of the uncertainty to the measured value, multiplied by one hundred.
The ratio of the actual yield to the theoretical yield, expressed as a percentage.
States that when elements are arranged in order of increasing atomic number, there is a periodic repetition of their chemical and physical properties.
Repetitive variations or trends in element properties.
Positron emission tomography (PET), often referred to as a PET scan. One of the more useful approaches to radioisotope use in medicine. This technique is useful in studying the processes in the brain.
The negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration.
A substance that could cause the transmutation of lead into gold.
Substance previously thought to be a unstable component of all combustible substances.
Under the right conditions, light can be used to eject electrons from a solid material.
Materials that eject electrons when illuminated with light, such as potassium.
A particle of light.
A change that affects the form of a chemical substance but does not change its chemical composition.
Those properties that can be observed or measured without changing the composition of the matter. Physical properties of matter include mass, weight, volume, and density.
Not connected directly between the two atoms, but above and below them.
plum pudding model
J. J. Thomson postulated that the atom was comprised of negatively charged particles in a disperse field of positive charge (positively charged particles had not yet been discovered). This proposed arrangement was compared to the arrangement of plums in plum pudding.
Polar molecules contain one or more atoms which possess either a partial positive or a partial negative charge.
Charged molecules comprised more than two elements.
Are long-chain materials with useful properties.
Has two or three available hydrogen to react.
Made up of many monosaccharides.
This emission involves the conversion of a proton in the nucleus to a neutron (remaining the in the nucleus) and an ejected positron (positive electron).
Describes how close estimates are to one another.
Applied force per unit area on a surface.
The amino acid sequence.
At the equilibrium, the concentration of products is large and the concentration of reactants is small.
Positively charged and has a relatively large mass compared to electrons. They can be found in the nucleus of the atom.
Substances with a constant composition that can only be broken down to their constituent parts by chemical means.
Geometry of a molecule with an equilateral triangle of 3 atoms and one atom right above.
