2 3.1 Symbols, formulae and chemical equations Symbols Each element is represented by a symbol, based on its name. The symbol is generally represented by the first capital letter of the atom of that element. When more than one element start with the same letter, the first two letters are chosen or their first and third letters are chosen. Either the English name or Latin name is chosen to derive each symbol. s Phosphorus P, Polonium Po, Potassium K (Latin kalium). 1 st Letter 1 st and 2 nd Letters 1 st and 3 rd Letters From Latin Names Boron (B) Aluminium (Al) Chlorine (Cl) Carbon (C) Argon (Ar) Magnesium (Mg) Hydrogen (H) Barium (Ba) Manganese (Mn) Uranium (U) Cobalt (Co) Zinc (Zn) Copper (Cu) (Cuprum) Gold (Au) (Aurum) Sodium (Na) (Natrium) Tin (Sn) (Stannum) Valency Valency is the combining power of an atom. It is equal to the number of electrons that the atom uses to form bonds. Valency of an atom may vary from 0 (Helium) to 8 (Osmium). Noble gases have a stable electronic configuration with a valency of zero. Every atom aims to achieve stable noble gas structure by loosing or gaining electrons. Various elements, such as transition metals, have variable valency. Their combining capacity changes with the conditions of the reaction. 3-2 Chemistry Complete Guide themis

3 s Iron can have valency of 2 or 3. Copper can have valency of 1 or 2. Phosphorus can have valency of 3 or 5. Depending on the valency, the atoms form ions with different charges. s Cations of various charges. Monovalent (1) Bivalent (2) Trivalent (3) Hydrogen (H + ) Potassium (K + ) Silver (Ag + ) Ammonium (NH + 4 ) Calcium (Ca 2+ ) Copper (Cu 2+ ) Iron (Fe 2+ ) Zinc (Zn 2+ ) Aluminium (Al 3+ ) Chromium (Cr 3+ ) Iron (Fe 3+ ) - Anions of various charges. Monovalent (1) Bivalent (2) Trivalent (3) Chloride (Cl ) Hydroxyl (OH ) Nitrate (NO 3 ) Oxide (O 2 ) Carbonate (CO 2 3 ) Sulphate (SO 2 4 ) Nitride (N 3 ) Phosphate (PO 3 4 ) - Formulae A chemical formula is a concise way of expressing information about the atoms that constitute a particular chemical compound. Symbols are used in a chemical formula. It denotes the number of atoms of an element to be found in each discrete molecule of that compound. The number of atoms (if greater than one) is indicated as a subscript. 3 formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-3

4 Every formula is unique to the compound. Thus, it can be used to identify the compound. s H 2 O represents water. The formula shows that in every water molecule, there are two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. H 2 O 2 is hydrogen peroxide. The formula shows that in every molecule, there are two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. When writing a chemical formula, the positive ion is always written first. The chemical formula of barium sulphate is BaSO 4. It is not considered correct to write SO 4 Ba, even though it shows the same information. Empirical formulae The empirical formula of a compound is the simplest whole-number ratio of atoms of the elements in a molecule of the compound. It may be different from the actual number of atoms in the molecule. For most ionic compounds, the empirical formula is the same as the ionic formula for that compound. Sodium chloride, an ionic compound, has the same empirical and ionic formula NaCl. It is not considered correct to write the formula as Na 2 Cl 2, even though the ratio of atoms is correct. Some compounds are never written in their empirical form. For example, hydrogen peroxide is always written as H 2O 2. An ionic formula represents the exact numbers of atoms of each element per formula unit in an ionic compound. The formula unit of an ionic compound is the smallest possible integer number of different ions in the compound. (Note the formula unit is analogous to the molecule in a molecular compound.) Molecular formulae The molecular formula of a compound is the actual ratio of atoms in a molecule of that compound. It is a positive integer multiple of the empirical formula. Molecular formula = (Empirical formula) n 3-4 Chemistry Complete Guide themis

5 For some compounds, the molecular formula is the same as the empirical formula for that compound. Carbon dioxide has the same molecular and empirical formula CO 2. Different compounds can have the same empirical formula, but different molecular formulae. They can also have the same empirical formula and the same molecular formula. s Benzene (C 6 H 6 ) and acetylene (C 2 H 2 ) have the same empirical formula (CH) but have different molecular formulae. Cis-dibromoethene and trans-dibromoethene have the same empirical formula (CHBr) and the same molecular formula (C 2 H 2 Br 2 ). The only way that they can be distinguished is through their structural formulae. Structural formulae The structural formula of a compound is the arrangement of atoms in a molecule of that compound. It shows the way the atoms are bonded together. Structural formulae are often used to represent organic compounds. Structural formula of ethane (C 2 H 6 ) molecule: H H H C C H H H Chemical equation A chemical equation is a representation of a chemical reaction using the symbols for the participating particles (atoms, molecules, ions, etc). A typical chemical equation has the following form: Reactant(s) catalyst Product(s) 3 formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-5

6 There are three components in a chemical equation. Reactants are the substances which exist at the start of a chemical reaction. Products are the substances which are created during a chemical reaction. A catalyst is a substance that accelerates the rate of a chemical reaction, without itself being transformed or consumed by the reaction. Reactants are always written on the left-hand side, while products are written on the right-hand side. Arrow ( ): Indicates the direction in which the reaction proceeds. Double arrow ( ): This represents a reversible reaction, in which the products formed can recombine to form the reactants. The physical state of each reactant and product can also be shown in the equation using state symbols. (s) represents solid. (l) represents liquid. (g) represents gas. (aq) represents a solution in water. Balanced equation A chemical equation needs to be balanced in accordance to the law of conservation. There is a conservation of mass, energy, and charge. A balanced equation has same number of atoms of an element on the reactant side as well as on the product side. The number in front of a chemical formula is known as a coefficient. It describes the amount of the substance involved in a reaction, but not its identity. The sum of the coefficients of reactants minus the sum of the coefficients of the products is called the stoichiometric sum. The equation is balanced when the stoichiometric sum is equal to zero. When methane, CH 4, burns in air, it produces carbon dioxide and water. CH 4 + O 2 CO 2 + H 2 O The above equation is unbalanced as there are 4H atoms and 2O atoms on the reactant side and 2H atoms and 3O atoms on the product side. By putting suitable coefficients, the equation can be balanced with all coefficients as the smallest whole number. CH 4 + 2O 2 CO 2 + 2H 2 O 3-6 Chemistry Complete Guide themis

7 By adding in the states of the reactants and products, the balanced equation becomes complete. CH 4 (g) + 2O 2 (g) CO 2 (g) + 2H 2 O (g) Ionic equation An ionic equation is an equation in which only those particles (atoms, ions and molecules) which participate in the reaction are listed. Spectator ions are ions that appear on both sides of the reaction that do not participate in the reaction. They are cancelled out. A neutralization reaction occurs when an acid reacts with an alkali. HCl (aq) + NaOH (aq) NaCl (aq) + H 2 O (l) The Cl and Na + ions are spectator ions and do not change during the reaction. They are not listed in the ionic equation. H + (aq) + OH (aq) H 2 O (l) Ionic equations can be written for any ion exchange reaction in solution. To write them, follow the following steps: Write a balanced equation showing the reactant(s) and product(s) before dissociation. Re-write the equation with reactant(s) and product(s) dissociated where appropriate. Cancel all spectator ions and write the remaining ionic equation. When aqueous silver nitrate (AgNO 3 ) is added to aqueous sodium chloride (NaCl), a white solid forms and settles out of the solution. AgNO 3 (aq) + NaCl (aq) AgCl (s) + NaNO 3 (aq) Write the equation to show the ions separately. Ag + (aq) + NO 3 (aq) + Na + (aq) + Cl (aq) AgCl (s) + Na + (aq) + NO 3 (aq) Only the Ag + ion and the Cl ion are involved in the reaction. The sodium and nitrate ions are spectators and are unchanged in the reaction. Hence the ionic equation is: Ag + (aq) + Cl ( (aq) AgCl (s) 3 formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-7

8 Worked s 1 Balance the following equation: Zn + HCl ZnCl 2 + H 2. Solution: Zn is already balanced on both sides of the equation. To balance H and Cl, add coefficient 2 in front of HCl. State symbols can also be included. Zn (s) + 2HCl (aq) ZnCl 2 (aq) + H 2 (g) 2 Which of the following equations show the balanced equation for the reaction of hydrogen with oxygen to form water? (1) H 2 (g) + O 2 (g) H 2 O 2 (l) (2) H 2 (g) + O (g) H 2 O (l) Solution: Both equations are not correctly balanced equations for the reaction. (1) H 2 O 2 is not the correct formula for water. (2) O is not the correct formula for oxygen. In balancing an equation the chemical formula of each reactant and product is not changed, only coefficients are added. The balanced equation for the reaction is: 2H 2 (g) + O 2 (g) 2H 2 O (l) 3-8 Chemistry Complete Guide themis

9 3.2 Concept of relative mass Mass of particles The masses of atoms and molecules are very small. In chemical calculations, the actual mass is not used because it is not practical. Relative masses are used instead. By comparing the masses against one another, the relationship between different substances can be easily calculated. Relative atomic mass The relative atomic mass (A r ) is the ratio of the average mass per atom of the naturally occurring form of an element to 12 1 of the mass of a carbon-12 atom. Mass of one atom of the element A r = 12 Mass of one atom of carbon-12 The relative atomic mass of an atom is not the actual mass, but is the ratio of two masses. Hence, it has no unit. Since the hydrogen atom is the lightest known atom (one proton and one electron), the mass of other atoms is compared to it. A carbon atom has 12 times the mass of a hydrogen atom. Thus, it is said to have a relative atomic mass of 12. As it is not always convenient to compare masses with the mass of a hydrogen atom, atomic masses have been based on the carbon atom instead. Carbon has more than one isotope. To be accurate, the isotope carbon- 12 was chosen as a standard. If an element is a mixture of isotopes, the relative atomic mass is the average of all the atoms found in the element. Chlorine gas is a mixture of molecules containing 35 Cl and 37 Cl atoms. Thus, the relative atomic mass of chlorine is not a whole number, but is calculated to be formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-9

10 Relative molecular mass The relative molecular mass (M r ) is the ratio of the average mass per molecule of the naturally occurring form of an element or compound to 12 1 of the mass of a carbon-12 atom. Mass of one molecule of the compound M r = 12 Mass of one atom of carbon-12 The relative molecular mass of a molecule is equal to the sum of the relative atomic masses of the constituent atoms. Since it is a ratio, the relative molecular mass has no unit. Sucrose has a formula C 12 H 22 O 11. It is made up of 12 carbon atoms, 22 hydrogen atoms and 11 oxygen atoms (relative atomic masses of C, H and O are 12, 1 and 16 respectively). Hence relative molecular mass of C 12 H 22 O 11 = (12 C) + (22 H) + (11 O) = (12 12) + (22 1) + (11 16) = 342 Relative formula mass The relative formula mass is the sum of the relative atomic masses of the atoms present in the formula of the compound. Relative formula mass is applied to compounds which are not composed of molecules, such as ionic compounds. Since it is a ratio, the relative formula mass has no unit. Sodium sulphate has a formula Na 2 SO 4. It is made up of 2 sodium atoms, 1 sulphur atom and 4 oxygen atoms (relative atomic masses of Na, S and O are 23, 32 and 16 respectively). Hence relative formula mass of Na 2 SO 4 = (2 Na) + (1 S) + (4 O) = (2 23) + (1 32) + (4 16) = Chemistry Complete Guide themis

11 Percentage mass Percentage mass of an element in a compound is the ratio of total relative atomic mass of all the atoms of that element to the relative formula mass of the compound, expressed as a percentage. Total relative atomic mass of element Percentage mass = 100 Relative formula mass of compound To calculate the percent composition by mass of H in H 2 O: Relative mass of H in H 2 O = 2 1 = 2 Relative molecular mass of H 2 O = (2 1) + (1 16) = 18 2 Percentage mass of H in H 2 O = = 11.1% Worked s 1 What is the percentage by mass of water in hydrated gypsum, CaSO 4.2H 2 O? Solution: One CaSO 4 contains 2 molecules of H 2 O. Relative mass of 2H 2 O = (4 1) + (2 16) = 36 Relative formula mass of CaSO 4.2H 2 O = (4 16) + 36 = 172 Percentage by mass of water in CaSO 4.2H 2 O 36 = = 20.9% 2 How many grams of oxygen can be produced from the decomposition of 50g of H 2 O? Solution: Relative molecular mass of H 2 O = (2 1) + 16 = 18 Percentage composition of O in H 2 O = = 88.89% Amount of oxygen that can be produced from 50g of H 2 O = 88.89% 50g = 44.4g 3 formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-11

12 3 What is the relative molecular mass of (CH 2 Cl) 2 CHCH(CHCl 2 ) 2? Solution: Relative molecular mass of: (CH 2 Cl) 2 = 2 [12 + (2 1) ] = 99 CHCH = 2 (12 + 1) = 26 (CHCl 2 ) 2 = 2 [ (2 35.5)] = 168 Total relative molecular mass = = What is the empirical formula of a hydrocarbon which contains 85.7% of carbon and 14.3% of hydrogen by mass? Solution: Let the formula be C x H y. Ratio of mass of carbon to hydrogen x 12 = = 85.7 y Thus, x y = 1 2 Empirical formula is CH Chemistry Complete Guide themis

13 3.3 Mole concept and stoichiometry The mole Avogadro Number (or Avogadro constant) is defined as the number of atoms in 12g of the carbon-12 isotope. Value of Avogadro Number is The mole (mol) is defined as the amount of substance which contains the Avogadro Number ( ) of particles. Number of particles Number of moles = s One mole of copper contains atoms. One mole of water contains molecules. One mole of sodium chloride contains units. One mole of any gas contains molecules. Molar mass The mass of one mole of any substance is called the molar mass. The molar mass of an element is the relative atomic mass in grams. The molar mass of a covalent compound is the relative molecular mass in grams. The molar mass of an ionic compound is the relative formula mass in grams. Mass in grams = Number of moles A r or M r of substance s M r of H 2 O = (2 1) + (1 16) = 18 Thus, mass of 1 mole of H 2 O = 18g Thus, mass of 4 moles of H 2 O = 4 18 = 72g M r of CO 2 = (1 12) + (2 16) = Thus, 88g CO2 = = 2 moles CO formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-13

14 Molar volume Avogadro s Law states that equal volumes of gases contain the same number of molecules, under the same conditions of temperature and pressure. One mole of any gas contains the Avogadro number of particles and occupies a volume of 24 dm 3 ( cm 3 ) at room temperature and pressure. The molar volume at r.t.p. (room temperature and pressure) is said to be 24dm 3. mass of gas Volume of gas = molar gas volume M of gas r s Molar volume at r.t.p. = 24dm 3 Thus, volume of 2 mol oxygen gas = 2 24 = 48dm 3 Thus, volume of 0.5 mol carbon dioxide gas = = 12dm 3 M r of O 2 = (2 16) = 32 Thus, volume of 32g oxygen gas = 24dm 3 Thus, volume of 48g oxygen gas = = 36dm3 M r of N 2 = (2 14) = 28 Thus, mass of 24dm 3 nitrogen gas = 28g Thus, mass of 12dm 3 nitrogen gas = g 24 = Empirical and molecular formulae calculation The empirical formula can be determined once the percentage or mass of each element in a compound is known. Divide the percentage or mass of each element by its relative atomic mass to get the number of moles of the element. Divide by the smallest number to convert to the simplest ratio. The number of atoms of different elements is the empirical formula. s When iron is heated in a stream of dry chlorine, it produces a chloride that contains 34.5% by mass of iron. Given that the relative molecular mass of this chloride (M r ) is 325, the molecular formula can be calculated Chemistry Complete Guide themis

15 Ratio of Fe : Cl = 34.5 ( ) : = : = 1 : 3 Thus, empirical formula is FeCl 3. Relative formula mass of FeCl 3 = (1 56) + (3 35.5) = Let the molecular formula be (FeCl 3 ) n. 325 Thus, n = = 2 Therefore, molecular formula is Fe 2 Cl 6. Given that a compound is composed of 7.20g of carbon, 1.20g of hydrogen, and 9.60g of oxygen, the empirical formula can be calculated. Number of moles of each element: Carbon: Hydrogen: Oxygen: = 0.6 moles = 1.2 moles = 0.6 moles Ratio of C : H : O = : : = 1 : 2 : 1 Thus, empirical formula is CH 2 O. Stoichiometry Stoichiometry is the measure of relative proportions in which elements form compounds or in which substances react. Stoichiometric coefficients are the numbers which appear in front of a chemical formula in a chemical equation. They are the numbers of moles of reactant or product which take part in the reaction. Molar ratio is the ratio of the coefficients of a balanced equation. The word stoichiometry derives from two Greek words: stoicheion (meaning "element") and metron (meaning "measure ). In the equation: 2H 2 + O 2 2H 2 O The molar ratio between H 2 and O 2 = 2:1 The molar ratio between O 2 and H 2 O = 1:2 The molar ratio between H 2 and H 2 O = 2:2 = 1:1 3 formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-15

16 Limiting reactants Limiting reactant is the reactant that gives the smallest amount of product. The limiting reactant is the substance in a chemical reaction that runs out first. When the limiting reactant is used up, the reaction stops. There is a difference between the amounts of reactants used in chemical reactions and the number of moles actually required (by stoichiometry) for the reaction to proceed. In the laboratory, it is often more convenient to have one or more reactants present in excess, so that only one reactant, the limiting reactant, will be completely depleted during the reaction. The amount of limiting reactant can then be used to calculate the amount of product formed. Stoichiometric calculations To calculate the mass of product formed from a limited quantity of reactant. Balance the equation. Using the molar mass of the given substance, convert the mass in grams to moles. Based on the molar ratio of reactant to product, calculate the moles of the unknown. Using the molar mass of the unknown substance, convert the results in moles to mass in grams. s To find the mass of NH 3 in grams that will be produced if 10g of H 2 is reacted with enough N 2 using the Haber process: N 2 + 3H 2 2NH 3 Check that the chemical equation is balanced.

Molar ratio H 2 : NH 3 = 3 : 2 No. of moles H 2 = = 6 mol Convert the unknown substance from moles to grams. M r of H 2 = 2 1 = 2 Mass of H 2 = 6 2 = 12g Concentration of solutions A solution is a homogeneous mixture of a liquid (solvent) with a gas or solid (solute). A homogeneous mixture means that the composition of the mixture is the same throughout. A solution is made up of a solute and a solvent. Aqueous solutions are those in which the solvent is water. Concentration = Number of grams (or moles) of solute 3 Volume of solution (in dm ) Molarity (or molar concentration) is defined as the amount (in moles) of solute dissolved per unit volume of solution. It is used to describe the concentration of a solution and how much solute is dissolved. A concentrated solution contains a high amount of solute, while a dilute solution contains a small amount of solute. A 1.00 molar solution contains 1.00 moles of solute in every litre of solution (not solvent). It can be expressed as 1.00 M or 1.00 mol dm 1. s To calculate the molarity of a solution containing 10.0g of NaCl dissolved in 200ml of water. 3 formulae, stoichiometry and the mole concept 3-17

Number of moles CuSO 4 = 1.00 M = mol Relative formula mass of CuSO 4 = (4 16) = 160 Mass of CuSO 4 = = 40g Percentage yield Most chemical reactions do not proceed to 100% completion due to a variety of reasons, including side chemical reactions, experimental error and environmental factors. The products which are obtained are less than theoretically expected from the reaction stoichiometry. The maximum amount of product that can be obtained from the reaction is called the theoretical yield. The actual amount of product that is obtained is the actual yield. The percentage yield relates the actual yield to the theoretical yield as a percentage and is always less than 100%. actual yield Percentage yield = 100% theoretical yield In the equation: 2H 2 + O 2 2H 2 O When 20g of H 2 and 220g of O 2 were reacted, the theoretical yield of H 2 O was 180g, but the actual yield of H 2 O was only 78g. 78 Percentage yield of H2O = 100% = 43.3% Chemistry Complete Guide themis

19 Percentage purity Samples of chemicals may not be totally pure. If the purity of the chemical sample is known, the purity can be accounted for in stoichiometric calculations. Percentage purity can be determined by measuring the amount of product obtained from a reaction. This approach assumes 100% yield of the product. Percentage purity = mass of pure compound in the impure sample 100 total mass of impure sample For the reaction of magnesium hydroxide with phosphoric acid: 3Mg(OH) 2 + 2H 3 PO 4 Mg 3 (PO 4 ) 2 + 6H 2 O The titration of 2.568g of the magnesium hydroxide sample required 38.45ml of M H 3 PO 4.
