Chapter 1 Chemistry: Matter and Measurement Chemistry Are you a gambler? Chemistry The Central Science Chemistry is the study of matter, its properties, and its transformations

Matter Matter any substance that has a mass and volume (takes up space) 3 States of matter Solid Liquid Gas Matter

Matter Element the fundamental unit of all substances Found on the Periodic table Unique name and symbol First letter of symbol is capitalized, the second is always lower case Review the Periodic Table powerpoint for more information about the periodic table

Matter Compounds Formed when elements combine in a specific ratio Chemical Formula - A notation for a chemical compound using symbols and subscripts to show the exact ratio of atoms of each element that are present. Matter Mixture

The combination of more than one pure substance Homogenous Heterogeneous Example Problem Which of the following is not an example of an element? A. Ni B. O2

C. CO D. S8 E. Co Example Problem The chemical formula CoSO4 indicates the compound contains: A. 1 carbon, 1 sulfur, 5 oxygens B. 1 carbon, 1 sulfur, 4 oxygens C. 1 cobalt, 1 sulfur, 4 oxygens

D. 1 copper, 1 sulfur, 4 oxygens E. 1 cobalt, 1 sulfur, 5 oxygens Example Problem Which of the following is not a mixture. Pure blood Bread Toothpaste Aluminum foil Motor oil

Identification of Matter Matter is identified according to Physical and chemical properties Identification of Matter Physical properties those that can be described without altering chemical composition Chemical properties indicate how a

chemical reacts under a set of conditions Identification of Matter PHYSICAL CHEMICAL Description by senses shape, color, odor, soluble, miscible, etc.

-Burns Measurable properties density, boiling point, acidity, etc. -Decomposition -Oxidizes

Example Problem Which of the following is a physical property of aspirin? A) Aspirin can moderate some heart disorders when ingested. B) Aspirin does not decompose when tightly sealed in a bottle. C) Aspirin yields carbon dioxide and water vapor when burned. D) Aspirin can be pressed into tablets when mixed with

cornstarch. E) Aspirin reacts with water to produce salicylic acid and acetic acid. Questions to be Answered What does a measurement involve? How do you make measurements properly? How do we convert between measurements of one unit to

measurements of a new unit? Physical Quantities Physical quantities measured physical properties Number Unit Proper Measurements Number

Reflect the certainty to which the measurement was made Unit Represent the type of measurement made Mass Volume Length Measurement and Significant Figures

Number Certain digits - all digits that can be stated as fact Read from smallest digit One Uncertain digit the first digit that is estimated No additional digits should

be recorded Ruler practice Uncertainty always exist in the last digit of a number Balance example Measurement and Significant Figures The total number of digits used to express such a measurement is the number of

significant figures. Measurement and Significant Figures Instrument used directly impacts the certainty of the measurement and hence the # of significant figures that can be reported. Scientific Notation Scientific notation - convenient way to write a very small or a very large number.

All digits listed in the number portion are significant Rules for conversion Move decimal so that it follows first non-zero digit Write all sig figs in number followed by (x 10) Raise the ten to the appropriate power Decimal moved left (+) the number of places moved Decimal moved right (-) the number of places moved Physical Quantities

Physical Quantities Measuring Mass Mass is a measure of the amount of matter in an object. Mass does not depend on location. Weight is a measure of the gravitational force acting on an object. Weight depends on location.

Chemist measure grams or milligrams Measuring Length and Volume Length has the SI unit of meter (m) Volume = length x width x height Units m3 Chemist tend to use milliliters (mL) or Liters (L) Measurement and Significant Figures

When reading a measured value All nonzero digits are significant. Zeros RULE 1. Zeros in the middle of a number are they are always significant. RULE 2. Zeros at the beginning of a number are not significant RULE 3. Zeros at the end of a number and after the decimal point are significant. RULE 4. Zeros at the end of a number and before an implied

decimal point may or may not be significant. We cannot tell whether they are part of the measurement or whether they act only to locate the unwritten but implied decimal point. If a decimal point is shown the zeros are significant Problem Which measurement is expressed to 4 significant figures? A. B.

C. D. E. 0.00423 kg 24.049 cm 1300 K 82,306 m 62.40 g

Performing Problems with Measurements Why are significant figures important? How do we convert from one unit to another? Rounding Off Numbers Often when doing arithmetic on a calculator, the answer is displayed with several digits.

Example - 13.6 / 28 How many do you keep? Rounding Off Numbers RULE 1. Multiplication or Division the answer cannot have more significant figures than the original number with the fewest. Rounding Off Numbers

RULE 2. Addition or Subtraction the answer cannot have more digits after the decimal point than the original number with the fewest. Rounding Off Numbers Once you decide how many digits to retain, the rules for rounding off numbers are straightforward: If the first number dropped is:

4 or less let it rest 5 or more let it score Problem The appropriate number of significant figures in the result of 15.234 - 15.208 is A. B. C. D.

E. 1 2 3 4 5 Problem Select the answer that expresses the result of

this calculation with the correct number of significant figures. A.

B. C. D. E. 13.3568 13.357 13.36 13.4 13

0.06 0.056 0.0565 0.05646 0.056462 Converting a Quantity from One Unit to Another Factor-Label Method: (Starting quantity) x (Conversion factor) = Equivalent quantity

Converting a Quantity from One Unit to Another What is a conversion unit Ratios, fractions, or two measured quantities that are equivalent Equal 1 The important item in these numbers are

UNITS Example How many kilometers is 26.22 miles? STEP 1: Identify the information given. STEP 2: Identify the information needed to answer. STEP 3: Find the relationship(s) between the known information and unknown answer, and plan a series of steps, including conversion factors, for getting from one to the other.
