Learning Objectives
Today’s
Objective:
 SWBAT: Distinguish
among elements,
compounds, and molecules.
+
Elements, Compounds, and
Molecules
+
Elements
•
Consist of only 1 type
of element
•
Symbols for the
elements are found on
the periodic table
+
Diatomic Molecules
•
Neutral particles in which
elements share electrons

Diatomic = “two” atoms
•
These molecules have two
atoms of the same
element.
•
Remember: HNOFClBrI
•
H2, N2, O2, F2, Cl2, Br2, I2
+
Compounds

Compounds are
composed of 2 or more
different atoms.

H2O: water is a covalent
compound

NaCl: salt is an ionic
compound {Formula
Unit}

Learning Objective - Preview

Determine how a chemical reaction satisfies
the law of conservation of mass.
+
Law of Conservation of Mass
 Mass
Before = Mass After
 Mass
of reactants = Mass of Products
