 WHMIS is a nationwide system designed to protect Canadians and provide
workers and employers with vital information about hazardous materials
used in the workplace.
 WHMIS helps you tell if a material is hazardous, type of risk, how to handle a
material safely. Information is provided by means of labels, material safety
data sheets (MSDS) and training.
WHMIS labels:
 Warning symbols that are on household containers
 Ex. Cleaners such as bleach
FAMILY/GROUP: elements in vertical columns – have similar properties.
Reactivity INCREASES from
top to bottom within groups
1 and 2
Reactivity DECREASES from top
to bottom in groups 17 & 18.
(Fluorine is the most reactive
 PERIOD: elements in
horizontal rows
– these elements change
from metals to nonmetals.
 Alkali Metals:
 Group 1 metals
 Soft, silver coloured metals
that react violently with H O
to form basic solutions
 Most reactive: cesium &
 Alkaline Earths:
 Group 2A metals
 Light, reactive metals that form oxide coatings when exposed to air
 Halogens:
 Group 17, non-metals, highly reactive.
 Fluorine is the most reactive
 Noble Gases:
Group 18
Generally unreactive (inert)
Reading the periodic table:
Significant digits:
 1. All digits 1-9 are significant
 Ex. 123 ( 3 sig digs)
With zeros it gets more complicated…
 3. leading zero’s are not significant
 Ex. 0.12 (2 sig digs)
 4. Zero’s to the right are only significant if:
 A. units are attached to the number
 Ex. 100 g (3 sig digs)
B. In scientific notation 1.0 x 10 (2 sig digs)
c. placed after other digits but behind a decimal point are significant; 7.90 (3
sig digs)

Structure of Matter
The Atom; smallest part of an element
Is made up with 3 major particles:
 Protons (positive charge particle)
 Electrons (negative charge particle)
 Neutrons (neutral particle)
Atomic number – the number of protons in an element
Calculating electrons:
 Atomic number in element
Calculating neutrons:
Atomic mass = n + p
Neutrons = atomic mass – protons
Always remember to subtract!
# of protons
# electrons
# of neutrons
More examples:
# of protons
(Atomic #)
# of electrons
# of neutrons
Lithium (Li)
Titanium (Ti)
Carbon (C)
Chlorine (Cl)
Bohr Model:
 Niels Bohr developed a diagram to represent electrons and
the energy levels of an atom.
 Each energy level can hold a certain maximum number of
electrons equal to the number of elements in the period
Bohr Diagram Steps:
Step 1: see what row the element is in,
and count how many elements in
the row it is. (include element)
All rows before the last one, are
fully occupied with the max
amount of electrons
Include protons and neutrons at the bottom
Oxygen Atom
Sodium Atom
Lewis Dot Diagram – deals only with valence electrons
Valence electrons – electrons in the last energy level
Step 1: write symbol
Step 2: determine valence electrons
Step 3: place electrons in North, East, South and West positions. Place one
at a time, with two maximum at each position.
Carbon Example:
** Atoms have one mission: to gain, loose, or share electrons, in order to become
fully satisfied.
 Diatomic: H , O Share pair of electrons
 Polyatomic: share many pairs of electrons
ex. Ammonium
 Most stable when its outer energy level is full of electrons.
 A maximum of 8 electrons may occupy a valence energy level.
This is known as the octet rule.
 If an atom gains electrons, it become negative charged
 If it loses electrons, it become positively charged
 Anion: element ion that gained electrons (negatively charged)
 Cation: electron ion that lost electrons (positively charged)
Properties of:
 Metals: conduct, “magnetic”, malleable, ductile, loose e-, cations, silver,
solid (except Hg)
 Non-metals: brittle, dull, does not conduct, gains e-, anions
Can a metal and non metal bond?
 Yes, metal donates e- to the non metal (Ionic Bond)
What about calcium oxide?
All compounds have a net charge of 0, thus neutral (stable)

1.3 Breaking Bonds
Chemical change – occurs when a new substance is formed, accompanied by a
change in color, odor, state, or energy
 Exothermic: chemical change when energy, usually in the
form of heat, is released into the surroundings.
 Endothermic: a chemical change in which energy is absorbed
from the surroundings. (substance usually gets colder)
 Solute: a substance that dissolves (salt)
 Solvent: a substance that does the dissolving and is in greater
proportion in the mixture. (H 0)
Solutions are a good medium for chemical change, water is a good solvent
Why Water is a Good Solvent?
 All 3 physical states occur on earth under “normal” conditions
 Boiling point and melting point is higher than similar substances
 Polar molecule – molecule with a partial positive and
negative charge
 Electrostatics – attracted to objects that are positive and/or
negative (water will bend toward a charged object)
 Universal solvent
o dissolve ionic compounds
o + and – charges are produced with in sol’n
 Dissociation- separation of an ionic compound into individual ions in a
o smaller parts (compound  ions)
 Ionic compound: has a cation (metal) and an anion (non metal)
 Molecular compound: 2 non metals
 electrolytes (conducts electricity when dissolved water)
 non-electrolytes (does not conduct electricity when dissolved in
Non- electrolytes:
 “Like dissolves like”
◦ Water can not break down covalent bonds in molecular compounds
 amount of solute to solution (ratio)
Concentration Vs Dilution
qualitative analysis (observable property)
◦ color
◦ taste
◦ scent
◦ test the solution
 Conductivity
 pH
(A greater concentration results in a higher/more intense property)

Preparing a solution:
 Example prepare 500 ml of a 1.2 mol/L copper II sulfate solution. And then
dilute it to prepare 100 ml of a 0.12 mol/L
 calculate the required mass necessary to prepare the solution using n =cv
and m= nM
Solution 1: v1= 500mL  0.500L C1= 1.2 mol/L
Solution 2: v2= 100mL  0.100L C2= 0.12mol/L
n=cxv  0.500L x 1.2mol/L = 0.60mol
M = nxM  0.6 mol x 159.62 g/mol = 95.8g
(CuSO4) = 63.55+ 32.07+ (4x16) = 159.62g/mol
 weigh the mass out on a electric scale
 pour the mass in to a 500 ml beaker
 dissolve the mass with approximately ¼ the required volume of solution
 transfer the solution to a 500 ml volumetric flask using a funnel
 add enough water to fill the volumetric flask
 I then need to calculate what volume of copper II sulfate solution is
required to make my diluted solution
 n=cv of new solution
 v=n/c of old solution
 New diluted solution:
 n= c xv  0.12mol/L x 0.100l = 0.012mol
 V= n/c  0.012mol/1.2mol/L = 0.01L = 10mL
 pipet out that volume from my original solution and transfer it to a second
100 ml volumetric flask
 raise volume to 100 ml
Diluting solutions:
CiVi = CfVf
You have 85.0mL of a 0.655 mol/L solution of sodium chloride, NaCl(aq).
Calculate the final concentration of the solution if it is diluted to a final volume of
150.0 mL.
