Who created the periodic table?

Dimitri Mendeleev

New cards
2

What are some characteristics of metals?

  • shiny

  • malleable

  • ductile

  • solid at room temp

New cards
3

Do metals form + or - ions? Do they gain or lose electrons?

They form + ions They lose electrons

New cards
4

what is the name of the section on the periodic table were metalloids are found

the "staircase"

<p>the &quot;staircase&quot;</p>
New cards
5

which side of the periodic table can metals be found?

left side (left of the staircase)

New cards
6

which side of the periodic table can nonmetals be found

right side (right of the staircase)

New cards
7

what are metalloids?

quirky lil elements that showcase features of both metals and nonmetals.

New cards
8

what are characteristics of nonmetals?

  • brittle

  • dull

  • do not conduct electricity

  • pretty colors

  • typically gases at room temperature

New cards
9

do nonmetals form + or - ions? do they gain or lose electrons?

they form (-) ions they lose electrons

New cards
10

What is Group 1 of the Periodic Table called?

Alkali Metals

New cards
11

What kind of ions to alkali metals form?

positive +1 ions, they lose an electron

New cards
12

are alkali metals reactive?

VERY. they react to H2O. one little drop and boom (jk idk if they actually go boom)

New cards
13

What is the second column of the periodic table called?

alkaline earth metals. "earth metals"? what are these? elements? oh. haha. they are.

New cards
14

what ion charge do alkaline earth metals form?

+2, they lose 2 electrons

New cards
15

now we're grouping together a big chunk of the periodic table. what are columns 3-12 on the periodic table called?

~transition metals~

New cards
16

yeah, transition metals. good job. now what's up with these guys? gimme some details on the transition metals

  • can form ions with different charges :0

  • have subgroups lanthanides and actinides (the lil guys underneath the periodic table)

New cards
17

two more groups left. what is the second to last column (group 17/ 7A) of the periodic table called?

ha ha ha haaalogennssss

<p>ha ha ha haaalogennssss</p>
New cards
18

what's up with halogens?

  • very very reactive. they rlly like my jokes.

  • i guess that's it for ha ha halogens.

New cards
19

what ion charge do halogens form?

-1, gain an electron

New cards
20

LAST COLUMN OF THE PERIODIC TABLE (Group 18/ 8A)!!! what are these super shnazzy elements called?

the...Noble Gases!!!!!

<p>the...Noble Gases!!!!!</p>
New cards
21

tell me about these ~noble gases~

  • noble gases are the "that girl" of the periodic table

  • y'know, unreactive, stable, full valence shell

  • these guys don't form ions. why? cuz they don't need them.

New cards
22

now it's the moment ya'll have been waiting for. the ~periodic table trends~

don't flip over this card. there's nothing there.

i said don't flip it over

New cards
23

what is atomic radius?

New cards
24

what is ionization energy?

the energy needed to remove an electron from the atom.

New cards
25

what's the trend for ionization energy like?

-increases across a period because with more protons there is a greater force of attraction -decreases down a group because larger atoms have a valence shell further from the nucleus

New cards
26

Arrange the following elements in order of their decreasing ionization energy: Rb, Sn, I, Te, Sr

I, Te, Sn, Sr, Rb

New cards
27

now we know ionization energy but what's 2nd ionization energy?

energy needed to remove an electron from a +1 ion

New cards
28

Which family has the highest 2nd ionization energy

Alkali metals

New cards
29

Which family has the lowest 2nd ionization energy

Alkaline earth metals

New cards
30

what's 3rd ionization energy now?

energy needed to remove an electron from a +2 ion

New cards
31

Which family has the highest 3rd ionization energy

Alkaline earth metals

New cards
32

What element has the lowest 3rd ionization energy

ALUMINUM!!

<p>ALUMINUM!!</p>
New cards
33

there's another trend called...electronegativity, but what is it?

The ability of an atom to attract electrons towards itself that it is sharing with another atom (ofc disregard the noble gases, they're all noble and happy)

New cards
34

now tell me about how the trend for electronegativity goes pls

Across a row: electronegativity increases {Smaller atoms with more protons (such as flourine) will hold electrons best}

Down a column: electronegativity decreases {Bigger atoms (Fr) have a weaker hold on electrons}

New cards
35

don't forget about REACTIVITY, what is it?

The likelihood of an atom to combine with another atom to increase its stability (yess they always want to become more stable)

New cards
36

what do METALS do whey react?

that's right, they LOSE electrons

New cards
37

what do NON-METALS do when they react?

they GAIN electrons when they react

New cards
38

what's the trend like for metals when they react?

Down a family: metal reactivity increases Across a row: metal reactivity decreases

New cards
39

what's the trend like for non-metals when they react?

Down a family: non-metal reactivity decreases Across a row: increases reactivity

New cards
40

now moving on to electron affinity, what is that?

How much an element wants to gain an electron (again disregarding the noble gases)

New cards
41

Why do HALOGENS have a strong electron affinity?

because if they gain one more electron, they will have a full shell, like the noble gases!

New cards
42

Which groups would have the least electron affinity?

groups 1 and 2 because they don’t want to gain electrons, they would rather lose them

New cards
43

Which is BIGGER? Mg or Mg^+2

Mg, cause its neutral so it has more electrons than a positive ion

New cards
44

Which of the following has the highest electronegativity? S or F

F
