Study Guide for Chemistry of Biology – Unit 1 2012-2013 1.

Know the 38 elements given to you on the “fill in” table. You need to know names and symbols only. Note: these are not the first 38 elements!!!! 2.

Be able to define the following terms: element, atom, atomic number, atomic mass, cation, ion, anion, covalent bond, ionic bond, periods, groups/families, subscript, coefficient, chemical formula, chemical equation. Know the difference between protons, neutrons and electrons in terms of location in the atom and the charge of the particle Know how isotopes and ions are formed What determines the chemical properties of an element? What is the octet rule? 7.

9.

What Law does a balanced equation exemplify? How is a Lewis Dot Diagram drawn? What do the dots represent? How can you use the periodic table to help you determine the number of protons, neutrons, electrons, valence electrons, and ion charge? 10.

You will have to construct electron shell configurations (with the rings around the nucleus) so know how many electrons can go into each energy level. 11.

You will have to construct Lewis Dot diagrams. 12.

You will need to balance equations. Also, which part is the “reactant side” and which is the “product side”. 13.

Know how to write formulas when given the name 14.
