Electrons in Atoms
This chapter covers the behavior of light, quantization of energy, and the Bohr model of the atom. It also explains the modern quantum mechanical model of the atom, quantum numbers, orbitals, and electron configurations.
The Periodic Table
This chapter covers the historical development of the periodic table and its essential organizing principles. It relates the table to electron configurations and examines trends in certain physical properties that exist within periods and groups.
This chapter covers the system of naming and writing formulas for inorganic compounds including ionic compounds, molecular compounds, and acids and bases.
Ionic and Metallic Bonding
This chapter covers the basics of electron dot diagrams, the formation of ions by metals and nonmetals and the octet rule. It also covers ionic bonds, ionic compounds, and metallic bonding.
This chapter covers Lewis electron dot structures, valence-shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory and molecular geometry, bond and molecular polarity, intermolecular forces, valence bond theory, and hybridization of atomic orbitals.
This chapter covers the Avogadro’s number, the mole, and molar mass. It covers calculations involving moles, mass, gas volume, and number of representative particles. It also covers percent composition, empirical formulas, and molecular formulas.
This chapter covers the writing and balancing of chemical equations. It also covers the five general types of chemical reactions: combination, decomposition, single-replacement, double-replacement, and combustion.
This chapter covers mole ratios, stoichiometry and stoichiometric calculations, including mass-mass, volume-volume, and mass-volume calculations. It also covers limiting reactants and percent yield problems.
States of Matter
