Which determine the chemical properties of an element?
the atomic masses and atomic numbers... group number and period number... valence electrons and number of shells... these all determine the chemical properties of elements...
Boiling point melting and density are some of an elements nonreactive physicalor chemical properties?
Isotopes of the same element have the same chemical properties because they have the same number of?
...electrons. Isotopes contain the same number of protons (hence, the same number of electrons) and electrons are what determine reactivity. 2nd answer : The isotopes have the same chemical properties because the electronic configuration of an element is same there fore isotopes posses the same chemical properties .
Why would it probably be very difficult to determine the chemical and physical properties of a newly discovered synthetic element?
Any newly discovered synthetic elements are extremely radioactive and have extremely short half-lives and only a few atoms at most can be produced. At the moment, science is not able to isolate enough for a long enough time. Therefore, it would be difficult to collect and keep enough of the element to determine its chemical and physical properties.
No. Chemical properties of an element are the ways an element interacts with another element known as chemical bonding. Chemical bonding is governed by the number of electrons in the outermost shell of the elements under consideration, and the number of electrons is determined by the number of protons in the nucleus. Isotopes of an element have the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons in their nucleus. Therefore, isotopes of an…
