Skills to Develop To understand the differences between covalent and ionic bonding. The atoms in all substances that contain multiple atoms are held together by electrostatic interactions—interactions between electrically charged particles such as protons and electrons. Electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged species positive and negative results in a force that causes them to move toward each other, like the attraction between opposite poles of two magnets. In contrast, electrostatic repulsion between two species with the same charge either both positive or both negative results in a force that causes them to repel each other, as do the same poles of two magnets. Atoms form chemical compounds when the attractive electrostatic interactions between them are stronger than the repulsive interactions.
A compound is a pure chemical substance consisting of 2 or more different elements that can be separated into simpler substances by Chemical Reactions.
Most elements are solids, only 11 are gases and 2 are liquids. Substances may change between these phases of matter with changes in temperature or pressure. A common example of a chemical substance is pure water. Chemical Formulas - Chemical Reactions Chemical reactions convert one chemical substance into another.
What is a Chemical Formula?
A formula in chemistry is a type of shorthand for representing the elements in a compound. Element Symbols are included on the Periodic Table.
Symbols from the periodic table are used for the individual elements. Substances that have two or more atoms bonded together, and therefore more than one element, are called compounds.
See Examples of Compounds. Examples of Chemical Formulas Examples of chemical formulas and their meanings are explained in Examples of Chemical Formula and Equations.
Learn and assess formulas in isolation and in context Learning and testing lists of formulas is a legitimate exercise but it can be tiresome and demotivating for students. Pupils aged 11—14 might learn the formulas of hydrochloric, sulfuric and nitric acids, sodium hydroxide and ammonia as their vocabulary in a topic on acids and alkalis.
It is important to quickly move this isolated vocabulary into context by combining it with other skills and knowledge so that students see its utility. Ask students: How many different elements are present in the formula for the substance in the flask? Suggest a pH for the substance in the flask.
What state symbol would be appropriate for the substance? Emphasise patterns There are rules within formulas — just like there are grammatical rules within languages.
Little, often and early Although the ability to acquire new vocabulary does not decline as students get older, there are benefits to introducing scientific language early on.
Early learning maximises opportunities to practise manipulating formulas and apply understanding, and firmly weaves the language of chemistry into its theory and practice. Activities to practice formulas make handy quick-start activities to settle students into a lesson.
It is also worth having a few such tasks ready as an emergency filler or to help keep students on task when practical work requires waiting around. Add variety Language lessons tend to be multimodal.
Students experience vocabulary in reading, writing, listening and speaking work. There are lots of opportunities to work with formulas in routine teaching, especially in practical work.
